    Steam:

    We are now testing a state of the art ranking algorithm. You may see the rankings here updated every minute.

    https://www.skial.com/api/tf2rank.php

    More modifications might be needed to prevent manipulation. We need your help to identify these issues.
    • Ranking is enabled on every vanilla server. Class wars is not included.
    • Wins occur every round win.
    • You must be on a team for at least 30 seconds.
    • There must be at least 1 human player on each team.
    • Your team rating and rating gain is based on time, so you should not worry about switching to the winning team or being autobalanced.
    Autobalance is not based on these ranks yet. The ranking algorithm is Glicko2 with our own custom modifications tailored for TF2.

    UPDATE 12/14 #2
    Ratings have been reset. Flag caps are now removed so only round wins are counted towards wins.

    UPDATE 12/14
    Ratings have been reset. Wins that took less than 8 minutes are now scaled based on duration.

    UPDATE 12/13 #2
    Ratings have been reset after a serious bug was discovered.

    UPDATE 12/13
    Point captures have been removed because they were too easy to get. Flag cap gains give fewer points based on the time it took to cap since they happen much faster than a round win. Ratings have been reset.

    Add player names instead of just their SteamID?

    Anything special planned for being in like the top 5? or just bragging rights?

    What if being in the top x ranking gave you a xxx% AP boost?

    (x's are any number you think is reasonable)

    It is too early to be thinking about adding benefits. We don't even know how accurate the ratings will be.

    Names were not implemented because people change names all the time and I did not want to send 32 people's names every win.

    Will a tab be added to the header for it?

    Steam:

    We don't even know if the ranking system will be accurate yet.

    We need people to try to break the system to make it more accurate.

    Steam:

    I'd be surprised if it did considering it's been five years and we have a completely new ranking system now. How did you even find this ?
