What is a Team Elo Rating?

  • A Teams’ Elo Rating is represented by a number which increases or decreases depending on the outcome of Challenges (Matches) between teams.

  • Win Matches

When does the Team Elo Ratings adjust?

  • The moment the opposing Team Admin “Approve” the score submitted for a Match played, the Elo Rating for the two participating Teams adjust.
  • Only Challenges with “Official” match type selected will adjust Elo Rating.

How does the Team Elo Rating work?

  • After every Match, the winning team takes points from the losing one. The difference between the ratings of the winner and loser determines the total number of points gained or lost after a match.
  • In a series of matches between a high-rated team and a low-rated team, the high-rated team is expected to score more wins. If the high-rated team wins, then only a few rating points will be taken from the low-rated team. However, if the lower-rated team scores an upset win, many rating points will be transferred. The lower-rated team will also gain a few points from the higher rated team in the event of a draw. This means that this rating system is self-correcting.
  • Teams whose ratings are too low should, in the long run, do better than the rating system predicts and thus gain rating points until the ratings reflect their true playing strength.
