Since our december update, you may have stumbled upon Multiplayer sessions called "[RR] #** RANKED" in the lobby and wondered what that was about. It has been stated in the past that we're working on bringing a fully fledged online career element to RaceRoom through scheduled and ranked multiplayer series, featuring splits based on pace. We are working towards that goal and a first step was to bring an early taste through ranked racing that's clearly advertised as such, but also exposing the rating to everyone. The rating, your reputation and your full racing history will eventually be displayed in the new menus (work in progress) but until that's done, we have a page you can bookmark. As I write these lines, it is still a simple list of the top 1,000 players but we are going to update it with more tools and a full list of all players. Stay tuned for that. Ranking list (updated every 15 minutes) http://game.raceroom.com/multiplayer-rating/ How to participate? - Race in any of the [RR] RANKED servers available in the lobby and see your rating and reputation scores evolve. What do you need? - Bring your best behavior: as all your actions on these sessions are monitored and linked to your game profile's Reputation score. - Intentional wrecking will result in a ban from ranked servers or a full game ban for the worst offenders. - Many tracks are on rotation for each server. - Upon joining a ranked session, you will see a Message box confirming this is a ranked session. You can dismiss that message by pressing the Brakes or just leaving the pitlane. How does it work? The rating and reputation scores are only calculated from events occuring on servers called "[RR] #* RANKED". You will find them in the list of multiplayer servers inside RaceRoom. Rating Our formula is based on an ELO rating system with many refinements to accurately rate racing events. Each player starts at 1,500 and can then go up or down depending on results. We take into consideration several variables to compute the rating of each driver who took part in a race. The more races you do, the more accurate the rating will become. Reputation The reputation score reflects the behavior of each player on track. The more incidents you get during races, the lower your reputation. The reputation starts at 50 and will slowly rise (or drop) as more races are recorded until reaching a stable and accurate value.
