1v1 Ladder (Expired Games): 2/20/2016 03:34:53

So in the 1v1 ladder right now my rating is rising very slightly with each win about 1-2 points per win.

First question: So does this have anything to do with unexpired games played when I was nooby?

Second Question: Do I have to wait until those games to expire for my rating to actually start rising quickly?

Last question: How long until they expire?

Thanks!

The more unexpired games you have, the less each new game impacts your rating.

Pretty sure games expire after six months, it used to happen faster but was changed at the same time that it changed from needing 15 games to needing 20 to become ranked if I remember correctly.

Does my rating actually drop when games I won expire / rise when games I lost expire?

Yes. Hypothetically anyway. A loss to a high rating player can actually raise your rating, and a win vs. someone with a low rating can lower your rating which i somewhat counter-intuitive.

You don't need to stop playing and wait for the old games to expire though, so long as the new games are played better than the old ones your rating should gradually rise when the old games begin to expire.

Honestly though, your rating seems fairly accurate, for example you've won 6 of your last 16 games vs. people rated between 1400 and 1500. You've won 31 of your last 48 games, which seems like a lot, but that includes going 22-5 vs. people under 1400, meaning only 9-12 vs. people above 1400.

Oh, that might be why I don't have a rank yet then, because I've played more than 20 games but some of them have expired this makes more sense now, thanks! :)

Edit: According to my list it seems to take 5 months for them to expire
