View Full Version : Spar Ratings

This could be the wrong section to ask this, but I'm very curious and have been for a few years now. How does the Spar System work? I'm asking how it was implanted because I'm trying many different ideas and nothing seems to work. Was the system based off samilar to glicko (chess ratings?).

You mean the 1500/200 or whatever numbers?

The first number is based on spars you win -- for example, if you beat someone with 1800, and you have 1500, you may have 1600 or something like that, and the other person may have 1720. The second number is based on how much you spar. 75 is the lowest, meaning most frequent. Highest is 200 I believe, it means you rarely spar.

The way you can calcualate spar ratings is the first number divided by the second, so for example 1700/75 would give you about 22.7, whereas 1500/80 would give you 18.75.

Someone may need to explain more, I haven't dealt with these for a long time.

This is the glicko system; http://math.bu.edu/people/mg/glicko/glicko.doc/glicko.html

Of course, graals sparring system was created before glicko. I didn't understand your post, probably because it didn't tell me much. I need more help on how it works. I can't explain what I'm trying to say and don't know how to put it. +_+
