How does CEDAPug ratings work?

Your rating goes up after a chapter win, or down after a chapter loss. For a chapter tie (scores too close), rating can go up OR down, depending on how favored you are to win and how confident the system in your rating.

How are teams automatically picked in game chat?

Following the game chat teams is mandatory. It assigns the most balanced teams possible based on the ratings of everyone in the lobby. If it makes stacked teams, that means there are a few players present who are in their placement games.

I just won a game but lost rating, why?

Your rating is calculated on a chapter to chapter basis, overall game score does not factor into this. This means that if your team is favored to win but you managed to lose 2 out of the usual 4 chapters, you will end up losing rating by the end of the game.

Alright, but why not calculate ratings based on games instead of chapters?

There are are very good reasons why chapter based rating was chosen instead, such as dealing with substitute players, potential server crashes, technical challenges, effort levels required to implement such a system and so on. Overall, the rating system is still accurate regardless of whether it is chapter or game based.

How does !sub work?

You type !sub from the game server, then your request will show up on the website. Once someone joins it, you can no longer queue for the next 30 minutes. You have the ability to cancel your sub request by pressing the cancel button on the website.
