Slow ELO?

Post by arsky » 15 July 2020, 05:02

So far I've won 20 games of Santorini and have a 67% win ratio. My ELO rating is 70. At the same time my Hive win ratio is way lower and my ELO rating crossed a hundred awhile back, all with a similar number of plays. Do the ELO Rating increases vary that much depending on which two-player game you play? Just curious, thanks!

Maybe you played the game in practice mode which does not change your ELO.

Yes, this. See https://boardgamearena.com/gamestats?pl ... finished=1

Also, I think it relates to other players ELO too. If you beat someone with ELO 200 it is more impressive than ELO 10. Since the game is new, most players will have low ELO, so it's slower to change because you're beating people with a low score.
