MLG Rank Updated

We’ve been gathering community feedback and listening to the problems players have been experiencing with our XP system recently. With that being said we’re excited to announce a couple of adjustments we’ve made to the MLG Rank Elo system that is going to improve your experience on the site! Let’s get into what the changes are and how they will affect you.

Elo Adjustment

  •  We have refactored the math behind how Elo is determined in an effort to soften losses and gains when playing other players who are much higher or lower than you are. Not only did we adjust the XP scale, we also changed the min/max XP you can earn. The least you can earn is 5 XP and the most you can lose is 30 XP. The amount of Arena and Global MLG XP you earn is determined by your rank compared to the rank of the player(s) you are playing. If you beat someone with a better Arena rank than you, you will earn more XP than if you beat someone with a worse Arena rank than you have. With this change, it will no longer take 50 wins to gain back the XP lost from losing to a lower ranked team.

We’re so excited about these changes, we’re going to give some things away!

MLG Rank Leaderboard

  • Who: All Major League Gaming members have an MLG Rank.

  • What: MLG Rank shows how you stack up against other players on GameBattles. It is calculated utilizing our Elo ranking system, which is designed to calculate rank in a balanced and competitive manner to help determine who the best players are in each arena. MLG Rank is determined on an arena-basis, so you will gain an MLG Rank independently on each arena that you compete on. Then, MLG Rank is compiled from all arenas to determine where you stand globally.

  • How: Your MLG Rank is gained and lost based on the skill level of the other players you are competing against in a specific arena. If you win against players who have an overall higher arena MLG Rank than you, you would gain more points than winning against players who have an equal or lower arena MLG Rank.

  • Where: MLG Rank displays in the following locations: your gamercard, GB Profile, MLG Profile, Team Roster Pages, Free Agent Pages, and the MLG Rank Leaderboards.
