Hi guys!

I wanted to ask your opinion on the winning percentage calculation. So now, I use a possibly naive approach when I simply calculate by the formula:

I wanted to ask your opinion on the winning percentage calculation. So now, I use a possibly naive approach when I simply calculate by the formula:

(won debates / all debates) * 100%

And @omar2345 made a notice about it in the platform development, suggesting that we exclude the tied debates from the calculation and I guess that's one way to go.

The other way to go is to use the formula from here, where the ties are considered as 0.5 of a win.

To provide some examples, imagine two participants that had 5 debates against each other where 2 debates are won by the first participant and the rest are a tie.

Now, the winning percentages would be like this, respectively:

1) Current approach -> 40% and 0%

Now, the winning percentages would be like this, respectively:

2) Omar's approach -> 100% and 0%

3) Wiki's approach -> 70% and 30%

So what do you think?

My personal view is that the Wiki's approach makes sense and is better than what we have now, but maybe there even better alternatives.
