Rating

League at the Palace of Cards - Ranking by TrueSkill

Your rating is calculated from your wins and losses in the game:

  • Each player starts with 0 rating points, which corresponds to a rating of 1 of 5.
  • Your rating increases with each win. It decreases with each loss.
  • The higher your opponent’s rating, the greater the increase in your rating when you win. The lower your opponent’s rating, the greater the decrease in your rating when you lose.

The change in the rating is shown at the end of each round.

Under My Profile, you can click on your stars to view your exact rating points.

Alternatively, you can go to your Statistics to view a graph of your points over time.

Note that the Training custom rule prevents your results as a player from counting toward the League.

Game Stats: League by Rating

The exact distribution of the points is calculated according to Microsoft’s TrueSkill algorithm. Stars are awarded for the following numbers of points:

1 of 5 This is what you start with.

2 of 5 1 rating point or more

3 of 5 10 rating points or more

4 of 5 20 rating points or more

5 of 5 33 rating points or more


Increasing Your Rating

You can increase you rating through wins in the game. This is because your rating increases with each win. The stronger your opponents are, the greater the increase in your rating.

Once your rating points reach the aforementioned thresholds, your rating will increase.

Your wins and losses will have no effect on your rating if you play with the Training custom rule!
