Important things about rating

  • The global rating is not a high score. 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 (AKA desyncs) 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 moderator. If you find a map that is imbalanced (E.g. more/all wrecks on one side or more mexes on one side)
  • 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.
