Ranking and TPR
- WEB-MATCH automatically can create a ranking table that is continually updated as the match(es) proceed. From the c:\match\arena1 folder start robin.exe that will create the ranking table of all running channels.
- Besides a ranking table robin.exe also creates an ELO list using ORDO. Modify the files cent.elo and elo.txt in the c:\match\arena1 folder with the engines names and corresponding elo rating that are playing in your tournament in case you want reliable elo ratings. Using the established elo ratings from CCRL or CEGT are good indicators as one can conclude from the demo match ProDeo - Fruit.
