Thanks for the posts - very informative. Please note that when I talked about another scoring method (which I introduced in another thread, adjacent to this one, please see that for comments and details); I still based everything on the Glicko system. The base skill calculations would STILL be made by the Glicko method, but the modifiers and the references change. Instead of calculating losses/wins vs. all players in a cton, we can calculate loss/win vs. the average skill of a cton. Again, look at the other thread for explanation.
