But RHP's rating regime is not ideal. For example, if player A plays against player B and their ratings are 2000 for player A and 1500 for player B when the game starts, but when the game ends their ratings are 1800 (A) and 1900 (B), 2000 should be used for A and 1900 for B when calculating the rating dif ...[text shortened]... r with the begin or end rating, whatever rating happens to be the higher one for both players.
You mean, for short, that the rating should be calculated on the differences when the game starts, rather than when the game ends?
No, that's not a good idea. If so, it's very easy to get 4000 in rating in a very short peropd of time. Ratings will be without meaning.
This has been discussed before.
