i just beat a player who was ranked 896 and i was ranked 895 and i received 13 points. how in the world is that fair? if 2 players are within at least 10 points of each other there is no way that there should be more than 12 points awarded or taken. that really needs to be changed!!!

Its based on rank. Beating a higher level player rewards you with between 13-24 points depending on the rating difference. 

Similarly, losing to a high ranked player will lose you between 1-12 points depending on the rating difference

The ELO formula says you should get 12.536 points in that situation (with exactly equal ELOs between opponents it would be 12.5), but the system always rounds to the nearest whole number.  See here for a list of all the possibilities:

it just doesn't seem fair! i felt like my opponent got cheated out of a point. i would be a little pissed if that happened to me! it seems like 896 vs 895 would be an equal match! i still think it should be changed. if you lose to someone within 10 points you should only lose 12 and not 13. i have beaten people that were ranked by more than 10 and only gained 12 if i'm not mistaking!
