Here is my log chat with a random random player :

I think it is the best explanation of the True Skill System. :)


Very long article and also explains how team score is calculated under Microsoft Patented TrueSkill System.


TrueSkill also has an official page ! http://trueskill.org/


I always stumbled upon the Microsoft Article page when searching. :)


The math article linked in Jeff Moser page has Gaussian, Bernoullis and Matrices. Very Very Very Complicated. :(

Any theories on ladder inflation, match making and other things ?


The calculator : http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/trueskill/calculators.aspx
is very fun to use.

That article is great. Didn't realize that there was ML involved before I read it.

This has been linked and partially discussed a while ago:

It's indeed pretty technical.
There have been some other topics about it as well.

There's also a WL tool by the way, see:

( The tool itself can be found at data.warlight.net/WLTrueSkill.exe )
