Destiny Tracker Elo

Destiny Tracker provides Elo ratings for every destiny player who plays PvP or Gambit.  The process is simply, we go match by match, per playlist, and process each match and use Elo.  That said - Elo was created for Chess, a 1v1 game, to track a players rating and predict who would win betwen two players.  We have modified this formula to work for team based matches. That's not the only modification though - We've made other changes to reward players who do better in the match.  

The primary indicator of whether you gain or lose Elo though is if you won or not.  As you win, your Elo gains will go up, however, who you won/lost against matters.  If you beat a team that you were predicted to beat anyway, that means your Elo is pretty accurate, and your gain will be minimal.  If you you win when you were expected to lose, look out, you'll be gaining a lot of Elo! 

Elo's primary goal is to be an accurate system of skill - Not a progression system.  We've analyzed our databse of players and found that we can very accurately predict who is going to win a match.  It is our opinion that our Elo system is the most accurate measure of skill in Destiny 2.

The first match you play of a playlist, your Elo will start at 1,200. Elo does a soft reset every season as well, where you will not be fully set back to 1,200, but you will be moved back closer to 1,200.  

Check out our Elo leaderboards.  For more information, open a discussion on reddit in CruciblePlaybook.  Feel free to leave comments on this thread, we'll try to respond!

I didnt know we were penalized when we join a match in progress and win/lose. Lost 28 points yesterday and joined almost halfway through the game. kinda messed up

Losing 29 points due to being disconnected from the game, error code or cilent crash is a bit much guys, come on. Especially when rumble wins are like 1-3 points usually.

It does seem a little contradictory to say that ELO is a measure of individual skill while simultaneously stating that "The primary indicator of whether you gain or lose Elo though is if you won or not." If a player enters random matchmaking, is matched with bad teammates and loses, his ELO becomes more a reflection of his luck in matchmaking rather than a reflection of his own skill.

If I may make a recommendation, it would be to significantly lower the effect that winning or losing a team-based match has on individual ELO, except for perhaps in the Trials of Osiris playlist.

I've been grinding out gambit prime for the better part of a week and a half and haven't seen my Prime ELO move up or down once. I'm currently around 1450 and have won roughly 80% of my games including numerous 3/4 stacks so I would expect to be sitting closer to 2000, if not north of 2200.

It frustrates me to average a 1.5 KDa over 10 games mostly being in first or second place, yet lose 253 Elo overall in those same 10 games. Why am I punished for not being good enough to carry my entire team?

Elo should not be affected when joining into a match that is already lost. I was top 500 in iron banner and then I loaded into said games multiple times in a row. I’m not near top 500 anymore.

ELO ranking is not a true or accurate ranking of Destiny players. If you truly want to rank players then win-loss would never play a part in rank. This system needs to be made to rank based on INDIVIDUAL performance for truly 100% accuracy. Example......25 kills, +2.5 kd, Top Player in game for both teams but I'm on losing team and lose ELO? Can we say broken and false ranking system? Take your data and make a ranking system with simple categories.......Wins, losses, kills, KD.....etc. There should never be a ranking system where team performance dictates a individuals rank.

You claim that your system is the most accurate measure of skill in destiny 2 yet the primary focus is on win rate. This is not the best way to measure skill at all and you really need to re think. Win rate is important don't get me wrong but it is not the be all and end all. You have 0 control over the team you get and matchmaking does not seem to be all that great. Now i do not claim to be amazing in destiny pvp but i am certainly way better than my win rate. I am apparently top 27% for efficiency yet i am bottom 12% for win rate.

Since I started invading in Gambit Prime, my winrate was increased to approx 85%. But at some point I just stopped climbing, because each defeat costs me 10-15 wins. I'm getting from +1 to +5 most of the time, but when I lose it's ALWAYS fom -25 to -70. What winrate do you expect me to have? 99%? Every time I decide to spend half of my day to farm gambit prime, I end up with 80-90% winrate and my elo is LOWER THAN I HAD YESTERDAY. While in other games (even in D2 Survival playlist) climbing is all about winning more than losing, but your system is straightforward punishing me for being good. Fix it.

Why do I sometimes not see any elo gain at all? Like not even 5-7 points? I have like 30 recent matches where no elo is shown and on the games it says elo:nan.
