Titan League Points Strangeness
I play Titan League (1.121 points) and actually won 78 games against Zero_killer (1.487 points).
Now I lose a game against him and I wonder: The last 2 games I won (and can check) I got: Calmon! +15 / Zero_killer 10 Calmon! +15 / Zero_killer 10 The one I lost: Zero_killer +22 / Calmon! 15 If I remember correct I got in all won games against Zero_killer never more than 20 points. Why is there such a difference in points? I think Zero_killer is pointwise one of (or the) highest players in outwitters. Why do I lose more for a loss and get less when I win? All games was given up. Any ideas?

Base damage in each game? Fta in each game?

RE: Titan League Points Strangeness
I lost another just this moment. He was starting player and again he got more than 20 points and I lost more:
Zero_killer +21 / Calmon! 14 Game lasts 30 turns, Zero_killer FTA, Base at 3 on each site I checked the 2 won I still have in history: Game lasts 25 turns, Zero_killer FTA, Base at 5 on each site Game lasts 36 turns, Calmon! FTA, Base at 5 on each site but both games only provide me 15 points each and Zero_killer only lost 10

RE: Titan League Points Strangeness
Your skill rating is higher, so the system awards him more points upon winning than you because it expects you to win. I had a couple matches going with people who got dropped down to gifted league when the leagues got ironed out and I was getting 6 points for a win and they were losing 1.
Since you are getting fewer points, the Algorithm is complimenting you

RE: Titan League Points Strangeness
Ok, I just read the help about League Points and you're right
But when I'm higher skilled he shouldn't have far more points and leading the division and on the same time equalize the skill difference by giving him even more points and me lose more for a loss . Very weird mechanic.

RE: Titan League Points Strangeness
Yeah that makes the points so useless for comparison since the inflation is per game and not over time like the sc2 bonus pool. I believe OML mentioned somewhere they wanted to change point inflation in season 2.

RE: Titan League Points Strangeness
Does base damage matter? I've been in situations where I could win my destroying their base, or leaving them without a move. I've been curious if one is rewarded more.

I've been curious if one is rewarded more. From my observations, it is just win/loss, nothing else get factored in the equation. I could be wrong though
