I dunno, Michael. You and I have had this discussion before. Playing up, in and of itself, I don't think even enters into the algorithm. As Orange Power points out, though, you'll generally be playing higher rated players...and therefore, one would think even moderate success against would give your DNTRP a boost.

No, madness is some of the people on your neighbor's team that went all the way to the National finals...and didn't get bumped. You know they were already top of their class because that's why they were recruited for that SuperTeam in the first place.

For computer-rated players, I'd give up trying to figure out The Computer. Save your energies for ferreting out and complaining about inappropriate self-rates.
