If you decide you don't mind losing, you will fall down to a lower league with a smaller Mark payout let match.

ELO is a performance-based match making system. If you have a strong, well-built character AND are good at timing your abilities and disrupting your opponent's strategies, you will win. the ELO system assigns you a rating from this and attempts to match you against someone with a similar rating.

A similar ELO performance rating match-up is the best way that we have found to create a fair fight.
in PvP beta we looked at Might and Level, but this does not factor in human element: does the player know what they are doing when they selected those abilities, gems and enchantments and do they know how to use them.

As you win, the rating goes up. As the rating goes up, you face opponents who are also high-performing duelists.

Eventually, you will be matched with opponents who:
- have a stronger character (level, gems, gear, enchants, ability selection)
- are better at reading your strategy and disrupting it
- both of the above.

Once you lose, your rating will decline and you will be matched with people who have a similar mix of character strength and pvp skill, at least as best as the system can determine based upon your PvP history.

As a result, most players will find equilibrium once their Win/Loss record approaches 50/50.
50/50 is not locked in, it is not what we expect you to be happy with.
If you want to win more than half of the time, get better gear.
Analyze your strategies.
Play the other classes, learn how they work, find the ability rotations that are most effective. Then learn how they can be disrupted and how to best recover from that disruption.

I'll talk to the programmers and see if someone can make a post that explains the formula that generates the ranking difference at the end of the match.

In the meantime, here is the wikipedia page that discusses different implementations of the ELO system used in professional chess tournament match making:

In the above post, it's said that the system tries to match rating to rating. I've seen elsewhere that there's also a hidden matchmaking rating that will stay even if the ranks/ratings are wiped. So which is it? Or is it that the two affect each other and your rank/rating calculations somehow? I'd still like a definitive explanation about how it all fits together - unless part of it is secret, but that's just being mean :D

Once you finish four matches, you get the "blessing of battle"(20% more marks per battle buff) after you click the bouncing chest. Don't click the bouncing chest until your resolve has regened. This way you're not wasting two hours of the buff while you regen resolve.

Makes me laugh when beekeo said "you will not be happy with it."
