Topic Subject:ELO (extra characters to bypass the limit)

I thought I understood how the ELO system worked, but I was looking at my rating and I noticed that there was 7 different rankings, most of them seeming to be repeated. Here is a list of all the different ELO ratings:

* Overall
* 1 vs 1
* 2 vs 2
* Team
* Allround
* Clans
* PowerRating

What is the difference between overall and allround? They seem to be exactly the same things, but allround has less players. Also, what counts as a clan game? And last, how can I avoid noob bashing? I am on TWC playing people of my power rank, but they are almost invariably 150 points below me on ELO. I have a cuetech of 1835, but a power rank of 19, so it's rare that I have a match with someone of equal skill.

allround is a combination team and 1v1. team is based only on people's team ELO rating. someone can be a 2200+ in 1v1, and overall, but in team they might be 1600. the 2v2 is based on you and a partner.

i have an overall higher than my team rate, although i only play team. this is because people play 1v1 and it increases their overall rate. so overall and allround are similar.

IIRC allaround is basically an average of team and 1v1. Overall is just a separate rate that is effected in all game types, based on the opponent's overall rate.
