Getting Started

The Lexulous Rating indicates the skill level of a player. The rating calculations are based on the excellent Glicko system formulated by Professor Glickman. You can read in detail here.
TLDR;

All players start with a rating of 1500 which changes at the end of each game.

If you defeat higher rated players, your rating will increase by a larger margin as compared to defeating players who are rated at your level or lower.

Similarly, if you lose to players rated same as yourself or lower the rating loss will be magnified.
