I received zero points if the opponent in real time ladder have very low points, but lossing points winning seems a bit unfair. :(

WarLight points are never lost (or loosened, or lossed). Once you receive points, they're yours forever.

However, you may be referring to your real-time ladder rating, which can go down when losing games on the real-time ladder.

One thing that's important to realize is that fractional rating points are stored by the system, even if the ratings only show it rounded to the nearest integer. This means while your displayed rating may not have increased after a win, it still likely went up by a fraction of a rating point.

Winning against bad rated players on RT-ladder can decrease your rating aswell.

It happened before in other ladder and it will always happen again with this rating system: in real time ladder if there are more than 1000 points of difference between your true skill meant and the opponent true skill meant you will lose 1 or 2 points.

It also depends on what their standard deviation was. If it was too high, the rating system is still unsure, and so doesn't penalize you.

A 2000+ rated player loses points against a 1300- player(with low s.d), regardless of the outcome.

i won the game and now i'm on 1982
i'll check if what motd's saying is correct but it shouldn't deviate negatively
