I've been browsing the forums past few days and I see this referenced in several but I don't know what it is. Couldn't find it in the acronyms thread so figured I'd just straight up ask.

ELO is a rating system, which gets used by many games and also in many competitive sports.
You start with an ELO rating of 1200, and winning games increases this, depending on your opponents ELO (The higher their ELO is, the more ELO you get, and the more they lose).

also it's not an acronym, it should be spelled Elo and it's the name of the rating system (named after the inventor Arpad Elo)

It is the rating system used in chess. It's hard not to make it look like an acronym though

ELO is electric light orchestra. Elo is a rating system used to rate a players skill level of the game.

Well.. I only get in a few games a week.. so i'm anticipating it'll take a while.. any idea how many games it takes? I usually run a 50/50 W/L.
