*The global rating is not an highscore, it's a possibility to balance games. You are not good because you have a high rating, you will be high rated if you are good. Always keep this in mind when playing custom games, I see too much people "unranked" by setting the gamespeed to "adjustable", because they "dont want to lose points" or play "just for fun". Again rating is no freaking highscore but a possibility for everyone to have fun. The only thing you accomplish by playing unranked games are unbalanced games and frustration because you will be heavily underrated at some point.

Important things about rating

  • The global rating is not a highscore. It's a possibility used to balance games. You are not good because you have a high rating; you may have a high rating if you are good. Always keep this in mind when playing custom games.
  • The rating is trueskill, not ELO. It's not a single value, but a curve; see here (How Trueskill works) to learn more.
  • Modded games or games with non-default settings are not rated.
  • Game that had desyncronisations are not rated.
  • Special maps that have nothing to do with the actual Supreme Commander gameplay, such as survival maps, 3v1 maps or "zone control" are not rated. If you find a map that is rated, which should not be, talk to a modrator.
  • Games that are disbanded before (60*Number of players) seconds are not rated. The game counts as disbanded as soon as everyone has left, or one team or one player won.
