I know this has been brought up before, but do we have a formula for the percentile? Because there's a direct correlation between percentile and No. of Wins.

The formula was posted on the DDOWiki, but why does it matter? The Leaderboard lies anyway.

there's no formula for percentile. that's just where you rank out of everyone who has debated.. there's another unseen number by which you're compared to everyone else.

your win ration is probably calculated and then added to based on the number of debates you've done and that number is how you're compared to other debaters.

I went up one win, and my percentile was recalculated from 99.46% to 99.50%. The percentile is dependent on the number of debaters either, hundreds of debaters have done 1 debate, lost 1 and gotten 52.37%, which is prolly just some form of introductory percentile.

I have lost 109 debates - more than anyone else in the entire history of this site, and I'm still 5th on the Leader Board!
