The rating of a player's performance in the arena fights is an indicator for the strength of a player and influences the choice of opponents in arena fights.
While the exact math behind the player's rating is not known, it is assumed to use an implementation of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system. The player's strength is not an absolute value but a number in comparison to other player's numbers. The higher the rating, the better is the performance of the player. It is not possible to maintain a certain rank by not fighting, because a certain decay lowers the rating for times without fights.
The bot provides two different lists with rankings. The one showing the rating of a player and the corresponding rank is accessible with
/top5. The following output is an hypothetical output of this command:
Combat Ranking: # 1 Iron Man 2093.2 # 2 Batman 2064.4 # 3 Silver Surfer 2062.8 # 4 Thor 2030.4 # 5 Hulk 2024.6 # 6 Captain America 2022.4 # 7 Wonder Woman 2021.4 # 8 Electra 2021 # 9 Superman 2005.7 # 10 Flash 2004.8 ... # 38 Green Lantern 1924.7 # 39 Deadpool 1924 # 40 Ant Man 1919.6
