Elo Ratings

Elo-based rating system to provide a basis for relative rankings of players

Overview

Elo ratings were invented by chess players. They are a great way to take win-loss data and provide numerical values to each player as a way to compare players against each other. We use a strict, formulaic Elo and points exchange table, which provides customized calculations and helps control wild Elo fluctuations.

Besides the formulaic and point exchange table based Elo rating system, we also have experience implementing algorithms for calculating initial ratings of players that don’t have ratings. We have also implemented a few methodologies to help prevent erratic rating fluctuations. Contact us to find out more.
