Elites: Deaths in the Thousands

Yes, Math is Brutal...

Elite Rankings are determined by how many novas they have killed (unmaskings don't count). My books are at home (so I'm taking a risk by posting this without double checking them) whistle, but as I recall the fiction towards the end of AB:Elites lets us know that all 100 of the top 100 have killed at least 5. That's 500 right there, but that's a very gross underestimate since it assumes that no elite with a body count has ever died, and all top 100 elites *only* have 5, and no one outside the top 100 has killed anyone.

Start plunking in numbers you need at least a 1000 just to fill in the rankings (2000 works much better), and this was for 2010. Assuming a constant progression over 10 years (which is probably going to result in an undercount) and we end up with about 200 dead nova elites every year.

By now the total bodycount should be in excess of 3000+. The bulk of these are going to be "weaker" elites who don't have much if any bodycount to their name and who are pretty new.

Agree? Disagree? Did I maybe miss something?
