ⓘ How are ratings calculated?

Ratings are calculated using the ELO rating system, with a sliding K-factor for a player's first few games. Only individual match results are considered, not tournament placings. This eliminates bracket luck from the equation and determines a player's skill solely by who they win or lose to.
