I worked on this for a bit with Myth and this is what we have:

This is mainly Myth's work (obviously) Thanks Myth

----------------------
Squads start off with 1000 rating points.
When a TWD game has been played, the new rating of the squad will be determined by the following formula:

New Rating = Old Rating + K(W-P)

P = Probablitity of winning
K = Maximum rating change
W = 1 if the squad has won, W = 0 if the squad has lost


P = 1 / (1 + 10^(-difference_in_ratings / 400))
K = 50





Example:
wolvencreed (rating 1000) vs Pallies (rating 1400)



first we'll calculate the probability of winning of wolvencreed over Pallies:
difference_in_ratings = 1000-1400 = -400

P = 1 / (1+10^(-(-400) / 400))
P = 1 / (1+10^1)
P = 1 / 11
P = 0.09 = 9% chance of wolvencreed winning over Pallies.
then ofcourse, the chance of Pallies winning over wolvencreed is 1-0.09 = 0.91 = 91%

- Scenario: wolvencreed wins!
so, for wolvencreed: W = 1
new rating = old rating + K * (W-P)
new rating = 1000 + 50 * (1-0.09)
new rating = 1000 + 45.5 = 1046

for Pallies: W = 0
new rating = 1400 + 50 * (0-0.91) = 1400 + (-45.5) = 1354.5 = 1355



-

K (maximum rating change) is set to 50 in this example. We're considering to lower K when a squad plays more games.

This is info concerning calculating the rating points for TWD. The quote was taken from an ancient post by Overstrand, and Guano thought it would be a good idea to sticky this, because enough people question about it every so often. So instead of staffers giving you a half-assed answer about it all, you can check it out here, if you didn't already know how the rating system works.

This is also a great way to maximize the points your squad can earn, whilst comparing the amount of points that can be lost to any given squad.

Wax that post by Overstrand was made in 2002. The system has not changed since.

hey hey ....

Last season I wrote a php-script to calculate the matches
(for those who can't calculated that by hand :P or head :wacko: )

With the start of the new TWD-WebSite and TWSD I fixed some stuff
and added a SD-Calculator.

For now it's just a nice tool to play with for you,
but if ya battle for points close to the start of next TWL it might become useful ... :whistling:

here's the Link, notify me if it doesnt work ....TWD - Calculators (http://www.web-sucher.de/tw/index.htm)

I fixed the missing Squads, if ya still find bugs mail me ....
