bnwcs ratings

BNWCS Ratings are indicators of skill level. When you kill someone, your rating will go up. When you die, your rating will go down.

The amount by which your rating goes up or down depends on the rating of the other avatar..

If you kill an avatar rated much higher than you, you will get more points added to your rating than if you killed an avatar rated lower than you.

If you are killed by an avatar rated much higher than you, your rating will drop by less than if you were killed by an avatar rated lower than you.

Every Sunday at midnight, every rating above 1000 is decreased by 5%.

Ratings are heavily based on the "Elo Rating" system used by chess players.

how to increase your rating

Killing other avatars is the main way to increase your rating. As you fight, keep an eye out for these other rating-boosting opportunities:

a: Assists
kpd: Kills per Death
m: Longest Life
p: Total Playtime
