Background

This library implements the TrueSkill(TM) ranking system and is a port of the python library https://github.com/dougz/trueskill.

Usage

// The output of this program should match the output of the TrueSkill
// calculator at:
//
//   http://atom.research.microsoft.com/trueskill/rankcalculator.aspx
//
// (Select game mode "custom", create 4 players each on their own team,
// check the second "Draw?" box to indicate a tie for second place,
// then click "Recalculate Skill Level Distribution".  The mu and sigma
// values in the "after game" section should match what this program
// prints.

// The objects we pass to AdjustPlayers can be anything with skill and
// rank attributes. 

// Create four players.  Assign each of them the default skill.  The
// player ranking (their "level") is mu-3*sigma, so the default skill
// value corresponds to a level of 0.

alice = {}
alice.skill = [25.0, 25.0/3.0]

bob = {}
bob.skill = [25.0, 25.0/3.0]

chris = {}
chris.skill = [25.0, 25.0/3.0]

darren = {}
darren.skill = [25.0, 25.0/3.0]

// The four players play a game.  Alice wins, Bob and Chris tie for
// second, Darren comes in last.  The actual numerical values of the
// ranks don't matter, they could be (1, 2, 2, 4) or (1, 2, 2, 3) or
// (23, 45, 45, 67).  All that matters is that a smaller rank beats a
// larger one, and equal ranks indicate draws.

alice.rank = 1
bob.rank = 2
chris.rank = 2
darren.rank = 4

// Do the computation to find each player's new skill estimate.

trueskill = require("trueskill");
trueskill.AdjustPlayers([alice, bob, chris, darren]);

// Print the results.

console.log("alice:");
console.log(alice.skill);
console.log("bob:");
console.log(bob.skill);
console.log("chris:");
console.log(chris.skill);
console.log("darren:");
console.log(darren.skill);
