What does 1 rating point represent?


#1

I was looking at TheDuck314s profile and couldn’t help but admire the increase in his rating, I was wondering what percentage of games a ‘1’ change in rating represents, is it a 60% win rate, 80%?

Current (26) 91.28 1 111 Still Playing
25 90.25 1 381 07/11/18 15:02
24 88.47 1 203 04/11/18 17:57
23 87.61 1 242 03/11/18 17:27
22 86.23 1 270 02/11/18 13:33
21 85.52 1 355 01/11/18 12:48
20 84.34 2 226 30/10/18 16:14

If you win a game you rating increase (or decrease if you lose) by some value which is f(game_played_of_your_current_version, opponent_rating) (the more games you played the lesser rank is changed). So it’s just an estimination of the skill of your bot and i think it has no maximum value.

I understand this, but say in chess a 500elo difference in rating gives you about a 95% chance of winning. the scales are different here, so I was wondering approximately what a one point improvement is worth.
