Incorrect standard game score?

Postby Caladrius » 01 Apr 2018, 15:58

I've just finished a standard game in which I got a 3 way draw, scoring me 33 points according to the auto end of game message.

However whilst my all game rating has increased by that amount my standard one has only gone up by 28.

I 've only ever played standard games on site so surely I should have the same number of points in both? Indeed before finishing this one my standard and all game ratings points have always been identical.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar with their scores or am I missing something?

I know we're only talking 5 points here but in the interests of accuracy if it's wrong is it possible to have it corrected?

The game in question is 140214 January Butter.

These two ratings often differ, because your score for a given game depends on the ratings of your opponents (which may be significantly different between Std & All game).

You compare all to all...and standard to standard since your rating change is based on the other players ratings. So just because YOU only play standard...if other players have different ratings...your change in the 2 will be different.

Thanks for the replies.

Didn't realise the difference or the reason for it - clear now.

You can actually see it explicitly at stats-> ratings, and then select all games vs standard vs some other format.
