Why did I lost my Elo points?

Monday 28/06/2010, 09:27

Yesterday, an hour before tournament ends I had 1468 Elo, and today Kate wrote me that I ended up 43 with 1438 Elo. Can someone explain me that ?

If you dont play for 24 hours in ELO, it'll drop, and how much is based on your position, it says so somewhere, can't find it atm though

Wow that is epic 50% of players are around the 1000 Mark 10% are less than that 30% are around the 1100 Mark, so your well inside the top 10% in fact nearer the top1% how u do so well?

Yes, I know the rule that if you are in the top 10 I need to play 6 battles etc. or you receive small penalty related to the missing battles, but Im pretty sure some players didnt play enough battles like me and their Elo points didnt change. Anyway, if I needed to play 4 battles, cause I was in top 25 at sunday, I played only one, so it was three battles missed and I lost 30 points, thats mean there is 10 points for every missed battle, right ? I cant understand why in Elo mode rules isnt it clearly explained, but it's good, that I lost the points, cause I finally know how is it exactly works:grin:

Is there a formula for how the decay works for non-top 100 etc. players?
eg. if I just broke 1200 today, it will decay if I don't play till Sunday, right? how much?

I find that it decreases by 2 points if i dont play for a day or two (when my ELO is 1000-1200)
