We cleared this somewhere already in the forum but I don't find it, also on telegram people noticed that.
The two games are:
Code: Select all
2018-05-05 13:42:11 UTC 951022 mrchris (1481) 1460 +13
2018-05-05 13:40:19 UTC 951016 IRRbertPC (1472) 1475 -15
For the elo formula, refer to wiki.gladiabots.com and the FAQ in the manual section.
The point is that each ghost keeps the kfactor of the associated player and the kfator for the result is determined by the player deploying first, normally a ghost.
Mrchris is actually in grandmaster, kfactor 20.
Irrbert is actually in diamond, kfactor 30. This means that with very similar scores, the points exchanged are different.
It is a bit of a bummer, but since it is true for everyone, it shouldn't be that bad. Surely if every ghost would be bind to the kfactor of the league in which it would have been, it would be better but even without that one can survive.
