    Hi, if i remember correctly the formulae used for calculating how much
    your rating changes by at the end of a game used to be on this site
    somewhere. Is it still here?

    Also, how do the RHP ratings relate to the ELO and BCF ratings?

    Cheers,

    Well, if you have a rating between 1250 and 1350 and your username is kyngj, that
    means you have an ELO of 3000. As for everyone else, I'm really not sure...

    So does that mean if you keep beating me and your rating goes
    above 1350 your ELO will come back in line with the rest of us mere
    mortals?

    Joe, if you fancy another game you will have to challenge me as you
    are at your limit.

    no, there is actually a special clause, that takes a moving average of my rating, which always
    keeps me within those limits... I'll stop talking crap now, game is on its way!
