I won a set but my rating go down?
Posted: Nov 17, 2008, 12:07 PM

Lately I received that message:

Congratulations!, You won your Pente game against lisa_a and you won the set.
http://pente.org/gameServer/viewLiveGame?g=50000000013281

kolia's rating change: 2033 - 2030
lisa_a's rating change: 1595 - 1598


Is it correct, that after won set my rating go down? (I don't care about points but it's interesting for me what algorithm is using to count a new rating)

Yes that has been the way it has worked for some time, there are a couple of occasions when you can win and have your rating go down.

The will change soon, I have changed the code that calculates the ratings but it hasn't been put up yet, I'm waiting to implement set-based ratings for live games before it goes up.

You can find how ratings are calculated in the help files, and by searching the forums.
