Explanation of Elo calculation in doubles?

3 months 2 weeks ago #943 by Alex Phu

I couldn’t find any information regarding how elo calculations are done in a doubles match?

Do the players rating and games played get summed up in the same team?

And how does the k factor and matches played count in a doubles game?

Please help, thank you.

Best Regards,

With doubles and no set teams, it uses averages of the two players on each team in its calculations.

The Elo System is a complicated system. You could always use the "Custom Points" system, give everyone 1000 points to start with, and give the winner x% of the losers points.
