Losing Ranking Points

Postby senorita21 » 29 Aug 2014, 17:53

Let us say I am knocked out of a ranked game. I lose points.

The longer I last, the fewer point I lose, yes?

No, that's immaterial.

The number of points you lose depends on the ranking points of you and your opponents at the end of the game, the outcome of the game, and the number of games you have already played under the ranking system.

My emphasis.

Many thanks for your reply, gareth66,

So, just to clarify the number of points you lose depends upon (amongst other things) on you and your opponent' ranking points held at the end NOT the beginning of the game.

There is one exception; if a player surrenders, the rating used in all calculations for that player is the rating at the time of surrender, not at game end.

Looking through the ratings of my fellow players in a game I'm in, :?: I noticed that one of them has a rating of 1106 in 7 completed games but with 0 solos and 0 draws. How is this possible? (I had thought when you lose a game or surrender you can only lose points or stay the same so, without a win, his/her score should be at max 1000, right?)

He/she also has a PureDip rating of 1099 in 8 games played with 1 solo and 0 draws. How can a player have more PureDip games completed than General games completed?

Searching the archives I see that the player did indeed have a solo in a game with the following settings:

Map variant: Standard
Game type: regular
Stats: rank
Public: yes
Variants: Classic
Map: mapv2

so it's clear that the PureDip should include the game but I'm unclear why the player's 'General' stats should show 0 solos.

So in a nutshell my question is not about the score as they seem plausible given the solo, but why the General stats show 0 solos when everything else (General rating, PureDip solos, PureDip rating) indicate that the solo was achieved.

Perhaps it is a bug. Why don't you tell us the name of the player so someone else can look at it.

Player's name is Lane. He has quite a few active games so already he now has a draw on his record that he didn't have this morning. Nevertheless, under General rating he still shows 0 solos whilst under PureDip he shows 1 so that part of the anomaly is still there.

I didn't name him before because I didn't want to call him out but as he's done nothing wrong I suppose that shouldn't matter.
