Points and rankings methodology
All beginning players start with a
base score of 1000. Player ratings
provide a way to compare the
strengths of two players without
requiring them to play each other.
It is not a competition. The rating
system is similar to that used in
chess ratings, the higher the
rating, the better the player.
Ratings are recalculated after
each game, using the following
Rn=Ro + 30
if they win, or
- (20 + 0.05*(D) )
if they lose.
where Rn is the new (post-game)
Rating, Ro is the old (pre-game)
Rating, and (D)
is the difference between
opponents pre-game ratings.
So for example, if a player with a
ranking of 1000 beats a player with
ranking of 1100, the winner moves up
to 1035, the loser moves down to
1075. If the 1100 ranked player
beats the 1000 ranked, winner moves
up to 1125, loser moves down to 985.
Players are promoted in this manner:
Less than 4 games on
1900 + pts
The Honor Rating & System
is calculated as a percentage, each
player starting at 50% when they
register. The value then is shown
on the player info & statistics as a
description based on the percentage:
90-100% - Highest Honor
70-89% - High Honor
50-69% - Honorable
40-49% - Average
20-39% - Poor
0-19% - Disgraceful
Players who hit 0% can be removed
from TOH. In general, the % changes
based on your opponents opinion of
your game during the winloss
submission; +1% for honorable, -3%
for dishonorable, and no change in
the default neutral.
- When a player does not report
their loss and does not dispute it
when it is found on the unreported
winloss page, they lose 5% honor
after 5 days of it being on the
unreported page, and the entry is
deleted automatically. If you have a
game on the unreported page that
should not be there, ie you made a
mistake, etc., please email the
responsible party for correction. Do
assume we will know it's a mistake
and remove it.
Frequently Asked Questions
1- I have
played several games, and reported them, but
why am I still not on the Rankings Page?
If your opponent hasnt reported their
win or loss against you, your report remains
in dispute, and can be visited via the
link. Also, it may take up to 24
hours before your last report is updated, so
2- It isnt
on the unreported file either! what now?
Did you make sure you put in your
email/map info when you reported your win or
loss? If win/loss report is not filled out
correctly, it is usually discarded. If still
a problem, just
and he will correct the problem for you.
3- I cant
seem to report my game "winner or loser not
Make sure you know your name, password
and your opponents name properly. If
misspelled, or your opponents name is typed
differently from what it states on player
search, then you wont be able to submit.
4- How do I
join a Tournament?
If you've played more than 4 games on
record (that is
Footman ranked or higher) you just
need to read over each
information and register by contacting the
appropriate tournament coordinator.
Tournaments may be closed because they are
either full, in progress, or not actively
5- What is
this clan thing?
A part of The Tournament with its own
independent system, you can be a clan member
if you wish, by contacting the clan leader
listed (if the clan isnt full). You need 4
games like before.
What is considered Illegal/Cheating?
Using cheat codes, trainers, looking at
saves, editing the map to your advantage
etc... Players should know that this kind of
thing can only bring them down and out of
opponent dropped on me, do I get a win?
Depends. If your opponent is a member of
the Tournament, with name listed in
rankings, yes you can get credit, but only
if the game was near finished. Try playing
reliable players, that is players who have a
significant record. Make sure you contact
your opponent by email to try to continue
the game first.
