Expand user tiers to more than just "Veteran"
Add a "Pro" status (or whatever you want to call it) that surpasses "Veteran". The range in user achievement with "Veteran" status is way too large. There is definitely a large number of daily users who are not beginners but are also not on the same level as the top tier "pros" (me being one of them) but are still lumped into the same status. For example, if I want to find an H2H match, every single created contest available is against what I would call a "Pro". Once an intermediate player, like myself, reaches "Veteran" status, it disincentivizes me to join more contests. There is a market of intermediate users you are not catering to, do something to incentivize them.

H2Hs arent matched based on if you're a veteran or not. You get a percentile ranking based on your results, and that is how they match you to your opponents. You can find it in your profile, it's like Gold, Platinum, Diamond, etc. then a specific percentile next to it.
