Liquipedia Rating: Current

From Liquipedia Rocket League Wiki

Explanation[edit]

What is it?[edit]

Our main goal was to create a rating of all the teams that is based purely on data and therefore not subjective. The rating should reflect the current form of a team and make it possible to rank teams accordingly. In addition we also want it to be able to do this across regions with at least somewhat precise results. This is where LPRating comes in!

How does it work?[edit]

There are a lot of rating algorithms out there with probably the most prominent one being Elo. Elo was developed by Arpad Elo in 1960 to create an objective rating algorithm for the US chess federation USCF. It proved to be so successful that it was subsequently used worldwide. So, is LPRating just another iteration of Elo?

A little bit, but not quite.

Elo is a really interesting algorithm which fits for a lot of sports, but for numerous reasons, it doesn't fully work for Rocket League:

  • Elo gets more accurate the more teams are rated. Rocket League, at least in its current state, only has a very limited number of teams that are consistently playing matches that appear in our database, mostly RLCS and RLRS teams from each region. This number is really low compared to thousands of chess players and hurts accuracy a lot.
  • Elo needs teams to play each other often and especially needs enough matches across skill gaps and regions. In Rocket League, this is not really possible, because RLCS and RLRS teams wont play each other all to often and even more so, cross regional tournaments are quite rare.
  • Elo is based on the assumption that a contenders skill is fairly constant, at least over short periods of time. In Rocket League, form can drastically change in short periods of time. Even daily form can make the difference of a low tier team beating a high tier.
