wut's ELO?

I'm not going to go into detail. Much more complicated than I thought it would be :/
Why would you really need to know this?
it would make laddering more efficient for him, if he knows what kind of teams or trainers to fight. Good question, Dee :>
yeah it is.... unless it's different for other ladders
You win against big trainers, you win the big bass bonus
You win against noobs, you get the mini prize
You lose against champions, not much of a loss
You lose against big noob and down go your points
It's all in Fizz's link. And yes, Jofly, the ratings are the same for all ladders. Trust me, as I run a server o3o
"The Elo system uses a rating and a K-Value to score players. When two players finish a match, the winner gains more points (up to the K-Value) if his or her rating is lower than the loser's, and less points if it's higher, and the loser loses that many points. How many points? Here's the formula:

If the higher rated player loses: Points = K-Value * (1 / (1+10Rating Difference / 400))
If the higher rated player wins: Points = K-Value - K-Value * (1 / (1+10Rating Difference / 400))
If both players have the same rating, the winner gains half the K-Value, and the loser loses the same amount." Is right i think.
That is correct.
Y don't u answer then? Lol
i could answer taking jofly's comment as a source, but i think that's a bit unfair so i'll wait some hours before doing it :P
