New Player questions including duplicates & ELO

Post by MjrClanger » Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:36 am

Hi All

Started playing this weekend and i am loving it. have got a few questions.

1. I can not see any duplicate matches for any of the games i have played. is this working?
2. the leader board seems to be working on an elo system? how can i tell how much i have gained or lost in a match?
3. How do the points affect this elo ranking?
4. How is the player Rank determined?

Apologies if this is covered in other threads, i did look but it is difficult to tell if changes have rendered the old discussions obsolete.

Thanks

1. Viewing duplicates was removed (for a while) because DGL's participants could see where the boxes appear in Disputed matches.
2. No. Elo has been implemented 4 months ago and no change needs. Only the display of results is older. They will change this, I hope.
The following link is not 100% accuracy (some tweaks was made), but you can use it to calculate Elo points: http://error420.com/fs_elo_calculator/
3-4. http://www.mode7games.com/blog/2011/09/11/elo-tweak/

Excellent thanks

I hope they get the duplicate stuff running again, as i think this will make a big difference to the perceived balance issues. Done successfully matches will not need to be balanced. This is one of the the features that could really set FS apart.
