This page tells you about how well you have been playing Multiplayer Death Match.
As an objetive parameter your Rank
is calculated.
**How to get into the Ranking?**

Of all players seen on the server (currently *
14
*), only those top
**
90
** with enough Incidents are chosen in the first step.
These are then sorted by their **Netto %** scores leaving
a maximum of **
24
** Players. In all **
14
** made it into the Ranking.

I am only Ranking those players, that have the most
*incidents* *and* highest *Netto %* for 3 reasons: One the ranking is only as good
(objective, fair) as the frag statistic is. In other words the ranking has
to be done on folks with lots of frags/deaths. Second the only high "Netto %"
are chosen to ensure that only the "best" are bashing in their heads. If you would
allow "weak" players into the Ranking, the "strong" players would rip them off just to get
better in Ranking, instead of hitting others that are good too. Thirdly
the tables & matrices get awfully big, and you would end up having to download hundreds of K's,
if I ranked everyone.

**Data Basis?**

Basis of all ranking is the socalled
Ranking Matrix. It nicely sums up all the data.
It shows your frags, deaths, and suicides (for more info see that page).

**How does the Ranking work?**

Using the Rank Matrix, for each pair of players *i* and *j*, we calculate:
For all *i!=j* (frags/deaths) *matrix[i][j] - matrix[j][i]*
(Frags *i* scored against *j* minus the Frags *j* scored
again *i*). This is done for all possible other players *j*, telling us
how good player *i* has been doing against all these other players. Summing
up these differences, and subtracting player *i*'s suicides, we get a
"netto performance". The latter still has to be devided by the number of contacts
(possible *j*'s).

**Rank Values ?**

The above yields the normed **Rank** values, that
run from 0 to 100. *50* is
your average player that does not suicide, and gets hit as much as get hands out.
So you will want to have values above 50... trust me ;).

**Matrix Details**

To make it easier for you to compare if you are being hit more by certain players,
than you are hitting them, see the so called
Difference Matrix. For each player pair *i* and *j* the difference
*matrix[i][j]-matrix[j][i]* is calculated. In other words if in your
*horizontal* player line you only see **positive** values then no one is
hitting you more than you are hitting them. The suicides have been removed.

**Your Rank**

Finally **The Ranking**. Here you'll find
all the relevant player information. And your rank :).
