Average Scoreing

Postby Tenchu » Mon Nov 16, 2015 1:46 pm

Not sure if I have my facts correct but at least in the past avarage statistics for games won deriving ranks for players used to be the total of games won divided by games played. I think it would be better if the averages started at %0 divided by %50. So it looks like so =

Games played 100
Games won 51
Average = 100.00%

Istead of like so =
Games played 100
Games won 51
Average = 101.96078430%


This way it's easier to lap your way back to 0% and after 0% your % is no longer divided by total games played only if your in minus is your % divided.
Otherwise the bigger your games played value the more games you have to play to improve your average.
Apologies if I got the facts wrong.

Your score is based on an ELO rating, not the number of games you have played. Regardless of whether you have played 1 or 100 games, if your score is 800, and you beat someone else who is 800, you get 16 points.

These ratings seem jumbles up as Nilly the kid is 220% ahead of 0% whereas e_i_pi is 1.05% ahead of 0% based on an average statistic not including abandoned games.

Keep in mind that the singles scoreboard just means there's one player per team. In a game with 2 teams, you can only win about 20 points maximum. In a game with 40 teams, you could win maybe 800 points (20 points per opponent). It's not win/loss ratio that determines the score, it's whether or not you win, and what strength your opponents were at the end of the game.

As I've said in other posts, the scoring system will be replaced when it becomes the priority, and all scoring will be retrospective and fair to all. I'm happy to continue the discussion though, as this suggestions should definitely be on the implementation list.
