The rating system bases on the popular Elo rating system. Normally its a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games such as chess. But in this game it is being changed to work with three factions.

The calculation itself isn't changed. It's just being executed every time an enemy has been defeated. So in a game with two factions it will be executed once at the end. In a game with three factions it will be executed as soon as one faction has been defeated and another time the match ultimately ends with the defeat of the second enemy.

New players start out with the average rating of 1200.

these are the formulas:
