A stalemate IS a form of draw. The points gained or lost by a draw are decided by the ratings of the two players. The higher rated player loses points for drawing the lower rated player, and the lower rated player gains points from drawing the higher player. If the ratings are close, sometimes there is no rating change at all.
The rating increases and decreases are only calculated by ratings of the players. Whether a person has a full army or bare king makes no difference.
