Rankings Algorithm Update


After evaluating feedback from the initial release of rankings I’ve updated the ranking algorithm to address some of the feedback.

Changes:

  • MMR is now weighted more heavily in the ranking calculation
  • All matches (not just ranked) are now considered for ranking
  • Points scored per win are weighted by average visible MMR in the match

Notes:

  • The existing rankings have been reset, so everyone is starting over with a clean plate
  • Rankings still reset quarterly, so the current round of rankings will reset again on June 1. Consider the next two weeks a sort of “trial run” of the new system.

Full details of the ranking code are available on GitHub, and as always we welcome feedback and ideas!
