    Elo ratings were invented for chess.

    Basically, they rank players against those of similar skill, and if youíre ranked incorrectly then it will self-correct by giving or taking more points to align a player better.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system

    For example, if two players near the top of the Elo rank compete against each other, the winner will get a point and the loser will lose a point. However if a low-rank player wins against a high-rank player then the gain for the lower will be much bigger, and the higher will lose more.

    If you find yourself to be unfairly losing points then it may be because youíre being placed differently, or your previous successes were a fluke, or you just arenít as good as you thought you were.

    This article here gives a good insight into the bottom end Elo ranks!

    Interesting!!
    Seems its widely used, mostly due to its simplicity and relative fairness.
    Not sure what algorithm GTS uses - Elo only seems to apply to 2 player games!
    But the expression "Elo hell" can seem good when the rating system doesnt seem fair.

    Iíve seen Elo used in racing games before.

    I had a world wide top 20 ranking in V8 Supercars 2 on the Xbox!

    But that was because me and my mates would play every night and Iíd win most races.

    One day I ended up in a race containing the top 5 players and got my arse completely handed to me. The genuinely fast guys were using some kind of handbrake trick to go faster in corners which I refused to do (because Iím such a purist!) and I was just not fast enough. If Iíd played the game in random public lobbies like everyone else Iím sure that my Elo wouldíve been much much lower.

    So yeah, one day near the end the game had fallen out of popularity with my buddies and I tried to keep the dream alive. I entered a public lobby driving some GT cars at Surfers. Got rammed into one of those crappy walls they put over the chicanes and placed near the rear. Lost a heap of Elo points. Told them over voice chat that they were a bunch of fuckwits. Traded the game for Splinter Cell the very next day

    I hope they don't start putting Route X into the FIA races. Blue Moon is at least challenging and requires some skill, Route X is just a drafting strategy. I notice BB Speedway and Northern Isle never have been put into FIA use.

    Is BB Speedway the oval with the right hand turn? I actually like that for its innovative approach and would entertain a daily race there. Not sure about FIA though.

    Yeah, that's BB. It's probably not used because it's just so small.

    They have modified this slightly for FIA and daily races. Now instead of your highest point getting result counting, only your last result counts. Effective January 17th.

    Maybe it will pave the way for multi-day FIA race availability.

    Balance of Performance on nearly all GT3 cars has been adjusted, might be time to do some testing again to see how this affects things. Fuel consumption has also been tweaked.
