For the last couple of weeks, I have been working on an alternative ranking system for Stratego, based on the Glicko System. The reasons I started doing this are actually quite simple: I wanted to learn better how Microsoft Excel works, I was interested how ranking systems worked generally and I was curious to see how certain results affected the rankings.
My goal with this project is nothing but to create an additional Stratego Ranking, besides the Kleier ranking. It is not my intention to replace the ASR with the Kleier Ranking in any way. However, I do have a few objections to the Kleier ranking, which I try to improve in the ASR, the main objection being the use of effective games, which, in my opinion, do not make the Kleier Ranking very reliable and up-to-date.
In the ASR, only international tournaments will be included. Furthermore, the ranking will only be based on played games. This means the actual tournament results will not always match exactly with the rankings.
In the future, any updates will be posted in this topic, together with a spreadsheet of the standings, the results and the calculations.
More detailed information about the Glicko System I am using can be found here: http://www.glicko.ne...icko/glicko.pdf.
I highly suggest reading this document for those interested.
If there are any questions, you can ask them in this thread, or send me a PM.
