Here’s a screenshot we took of the nerdy pastime of mine:
Did you ever hear of or played Hearthstone?
It’s an on-line card game centered on realm of Warcraft.
In the event that you play ranked and do reasonably well, you may make it towards the ‘Legend’ rank.
When you’ve obtained the legend ranking, you can observe your real position in your area.
Therefore into the screenshot above, the thing is me personally getting Legend rank for the very first time ever.
We arrived in at quantity 1460 of European countries.
This means there have been 1459 players greater ranked than me at the time that is particular.
And a whole large amount of players were lower rated.
Now to describe ELO a bit further:
If my game that is next was the ball player with ranking 1461, the device would see us as similarly skilled. We’d both have actually the amount that is same of to win or lose.
However, if my next game will be up against the man at ranking 250…
…and i might somehow win…
…I’d go up a great deal of ranks. And then he would quite go down some ranks. […]
