Hello ! I have a bug with the rating system to report. I think an avorted teamgame was rated instead of being unranked.

I know exactly my rating because it just went over 1650.

So 2019.01.23 @7:08 i play game ID 9171253 and i go from 1646 to 1657

i don't play for 2 days after that. Then today :

We try to host and play game id 9182981 at 21:33 but someone failed to connect ingame so we rehost immediatly. FAF replay vault says this game lasted less than 5 minutes and we were 12 in it so it should not be rated.
Then we play the real game just after that (id : 9183255)

Then after game is finished i check my rating and i expect it to be higher than 1660 but it actually went down to 1648. I notice that FAF thinks my current game (the real one) is still being played. So i conclude from it that it has to be the previous game which ended up being rated somehow.

I am 100% sure about the rating, games and dates.

looks like a bug with your eyes and your obsession with global rating points :)

No. Like i said when my second game was finished, FAF was still displaying it as being played. So what happened is :
1657 > failed game of less than 5m > 1648 (but i don't see it yet) > rehost > win > i check my rating and see 1648 > i wait 5 mins and i see 1658

The final rating i went to by winning the second game is not relevant in my report.

Edit : Here you can see it changing step by step with the chart thingy :

I also had a weird bug today with my first game since that other bug : my team won on wonder but i lost 1 point ? (game id : 9191191) I went from 1658 to 1657 ^^
Game after that win again and this time i get 12 points which is more normal behaviour.

If i check on the chart tool on the website instead of going from 1658 to 1657 my first game keeps my rating the same (1658 twice, so 2 consecutive dots but not the same date).

To say it with other words : since i am above 1650 rating i won all my games (3) but i have seen my rating going down twice ^^ Since all games were pretty similar (same map, rating range ~1700, 93% balance) i really think something is wrong with the rating system or at least what it shows. Maybe something about deviation ? I dont always look closely so it could be normal behaviour, but i never recall losing points for games like that. And i have almost always been around 1600 and have played 2000+ teamgames so i suppose i don't have a super-huge deviation.
