Rating Points Question

Postby SteveHybrid » 20 Mar 2018, 22:37

Hey quick question. Do we lose more rating points based on the draw size that beats us? So, if I lose a match and it ends in a 3 way compared to a 4 way. Would I ultimately lose more or less points.

Others will answer better than I, but I will point out that I was mildly surprised last week to take part in a three-way draw as Italy and actually lose points in my rating.

I believe if you lose, you lose the same points regardless of the draw size or solo.

Also confirmed by a previous thread on the same subject:

viewtopic.php?f=565&t=55657

Loss is a loss...to a solo or a 6way draw...doesn't matter.
