Ok, on TWC I am a Sergeant. On Saturday I played a 2v2 with a 2nd Lieu on my team. My partner was really useless. Here is the game if anybody cares: http://www.agecommunity.com/stats/GameStats.aspx?loc=en-US&GameID=e95a8562-37be-44f4-a08e-32283db577d5&sFlag=1&md=ZS_Supremacy

Anyways, after becoming really angry that he was a higher rank than I am, but he sucked so much...I checked his Elo Rating. He's a 1443 and I'm 1537. How is his PR higher than mine when he has a lower elo rating? Shouldn't elo rating show a direct connection to PR in game?

No, because it is 2 completely different systems.

I understand they are different systems, but they are both supposed to be a guage of how good you are, no? How can he be two PRs higher than me in game but be almost 100 points lower in ELO?

elo is your current form basically. You lose 4 in a row, you can drop 100 points. Whereas you will lose marginal points as PR is a measurement of your skill over EVERY game you have played.

Sorry everyone, there is an easier explanation this time. PR values 1v1 much higher then team games. Your ally was almost 1800 in 1v1.

Yea ..

the new ELO system is better overall, but I feel that it's somehow much more dependent on civ. For example, I see players within the same PR level in which have lamed me in close games using Spain, Dutch or Iro, but with 100 or 200 more ELO points. I once reccomended that like PR, ELO should depend on civ win percentages. I haven't changed my mind.

I was 1798.9 1v1 and a 2nd lt on Sunday morning, I lost one and won one, now I'm lvl 19 master sarge 18.2 points and 1746 1v1. I can't complain though, I'll just rework to get back up =D!
