Some kind of short FAQ

 - Q: Where I am in the rating? Why I can see my friends but there is no me!
 - A: We do not show those shooters who has less than 3 matches Level III in their history. We need to aggregate several matches. In fact, even 2-3 matches are not enough. So, the higher match count each shooter has - the more trust in his/her ranking.

 - Q: Which matches are used in calculations?
 - A: For IPSC we process only Level III, IV and V matches. For USPSA we process all "Major matches" as they shown on uspsa.org website.

 - Q: I shot more than 2 Level III+ matches, but still can't find myself in rating?
 - A: Check if matches you participated in are in our match list and if yes, check spelling of your name. If your name has been misspelled, you can write us match name, wrong name and correct name. In future please check your name correctness on match registration.

About rating calculation algorithm

update 07/2020: currently it is 5th version of ranking system. Now it is mostly based on Elo's ranking algorithm (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system). On every match you competes only with one particular shooter which current rating is closest to yours. If you win - your rating increased, if not - decreased. Of cause, change is depend from many factors: rating difference, your global rank and some other things protecting data from sudden spikes caused one's single unusual result.

The more match results processed for particular shooter (see the number in the last column of the rating table) - there is more trust for the rating result.

There can be some minor problems with the name recognition due to the fact, that if stats officer didn't use any kind of electronic match registration system (like MOS or MakeReady, for example) can easily make a mistype while entering the data for the match in the WinMSS software. We use very complex algorithm for eliminating doubles, but nothing is perfect. If you'll find such doubled results - write us, please.
