Littlewhitey's Elo Rating Scoreboard

I spent probably too much time making this so I figured I'd share.

What is this?
This is an unofficial, objectively calculated scoreboard for Littlewhitey's. An IRC bot listens to the echo channel on IRC for kills and deaths, and uses the Elo rating system for scoring people. This site has a Top 25 list, small profiles, and signatures. It also only knows about kills and deaths performed since the bot started running.

Important Note!! If something goes wrong with this, do not annoy the LW staff about it. They have literally nothing to do with it.

What does that mean? (How are scores calculated?)
By default, all players start with a score of 1000.

Essentially, whenever a player is killed, the rating algorithm takes each player's score and tries to "predict" who would win based on the difference. This is then used to calculate the amount of points to award to the winning player. These points are subtracted from the score of the losing player.

Because of the nature of the algorithm, less points are awarded to players who were almost guaranteed a win (e.g. a skilled player killing someone who doesn't know where the fire button is). Conversely, it is more valuable to kill players as skilled or more skilled than you.

This makes this into something of a perpetual ladder match.

Why?
For fun.

How come I'm not on here/my profile doesn't exist?
As mentioned above, the bot only knows about players who appeared since it first started. If you play again, you'll see a profile appear for you.

I'll be glad to answer any questions I definitely missed so far.

Let's see how long until your bot get's banned from their channel again ;)
Nice work, fun to see other people messing around with data from other servers :)
