Aren't FFAs supposed to be no elo?
+1 / -0
No. I've asked about that a few times before and the response I got is that the games produce rating that is still valuable for casual elo purposes.

In other words, FFAs help with rating more than they hurt.

TBH this is something I find difficult to argue with, for all the wrong reasons. I don't know if that's still what is mostly happening, but when I stopped playing FFAs, the room would systematically gang on the higest rated player. Unless you're good enough to win a 3+v1, you're going to lose. You're going to lose rating, and they're going to gain some. This also means it's a mode ripe for elo dumping in a "legitimate" way.

That being said if Hedkeaf ranked up in FFAs, that seems to mean they aren't doing that anymore, so admins would point to this and say: See? The best player in the room ranked up, as expected. In this case, they'd also be right.

FFA games are supposed to be noelo but there isn't anything in the server which forces them to be, at the moment. They will retroactively become no-elo at some point in the future. An unfortunate hack solution, but it is what it is.

To answer CArankGalamesh, including FFA games would still probably improve the accuracy of casual rating for most people, but (a) some people were throwing FFA games to artifically deflate their rating and (b) FFA games being rated seemed to be doing damage to the FFA experience itself.

This should fix that.
