Ok, so I haven't been very active in debating recently, so what is this ELO thing that keeps popping up now and again? Can someone please explain it to me?

Its the new ranking system DDO has that replaced that other one that was much dumber. People really seem to like it since it takes into account a lot more then just number of wins.

you start at 2000 and then work your way up and down based on whether you win or not and based on how good the person youre debating is. If you beat someone good, your Elo will shoot up, if you lose to a derp, its going to drop pretty far

Its some complicated as F*ck math equation. I have a lot of questions about it still. People tried explaining, I still didn't get it. OR I got it, but still had questions on how skill was measured by it. But I eventually just decided, who gives fvck lol.

W = winner's original ELO
L = loser's original ELO
D = change in ELO

D = 100*(W+9L)/10W

And there is a 25 point instigator advantage (meaning the instigator gets +25 and the contender gets -25).

Every member starts out with 2000 points and with every debate, points are added and subtracted for each win and loss respectively, the amount being determined by the formula provided.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
