Frequently Asked Questions
is a ranking algorithm developed by Arpad Elo and most commmonly associated with chess. There are different variations, but the one we use works as follows:
- Every item starts with an Elo of 1200.
- When you choose one item over another, the winner gains points and the loser loses points.
- The amount of points gained or lost is determined by the difference in Elo between the two items. If the winner had a higher ranking to begin with, the increase will be small - and vice versa.
- New items gain/lose a larger amount for the first 30 turns.
