Rating Calculation

Only matches that you complete in full against your assigned opponents count towards your player rating. Defaults, incomplete matches, retirements and averages do not represent your abilities and are removed from the rating calculation. Additionally, matches played against subs are removed because players can select their own subs and subs are not motivated to play as hard as if the match counted for them. The end result is a rating that shows a statistically pure picture of how competitive you are at your current skill level.

To calculate your rating - Find the difference in the league points earned between you and your opponent for each valid match. Sum the point difference and divide by the total number of valid matches. This is the number you see in the rating column on your standings page. During the season you will notice your rating will change after each match, and will not be finalized until the end of the season.

Sample Rating Calculation

Note: Week 3 is not factored into the rating due to a sub being used.

WK 1 WK 2 WK 3 WK 4 WK 5 WK 6 WK 7
Your Points 14 12 8P 4 14 12 12
Opponents Points 6 8 12S 14 8 7 8
Point Difference (rating) +8 +4 N/A -10 +6 +5 +4

17 is the total difference in points. 17 points divided by 6 valid matches equals a +2.8 end of season rating.

Did You Know?

Your rating is equally valid whether it is based on 4, 5, 6, or 7 matches. The key is that only valid matches are included. A rating based on 4 matches simply means each match counts more towards your rating. Think of it like a class where your grade is based on 4 tests rather than 7. It's not the number of tests that are important and both are equally fair.
