 Posts: 15,380 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 8/6/2010 12:45:00 PMPosted: 7 years agoI 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.Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

 Posts: 15,380 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 8/7/2010 6:12:05 AMPosted: 7 years agoI 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.Pizza.
