You can let your students have your own Academy’s/Club’s Elo, which will be useful when you want to seed the players based on their Academy Elo.
1) Select the Elo Rating systems for your academy
The first step is to select the Elo Rating system(s) for your academy. You can do that by going to ‘Settings‘ tab in the “Academy” section:
You can select the following Elo Rating systems for your Academy:
- Academy Elo Blitz
- Academy Elo Rapid
- Academy Elo Standard
2) Set initial Elo Rating for your students
You can also set different initial Elo Rating for each of your student. To do that, go to the ‘Students‘ tab and click on ‘Ratings‘ for a particular student to set the initial rating.
For example, let’s set an initial Academy Elo Rapid rating of 1400 for the student, arunsrinivaas_36 (Adam).
NOTE: Academy Elo Rating for a student can be edited ONLY in the initial stage. If the student has played even one tournament game under a Elo Rating system, that rating cannot be edited for that student.
For example, student arunsrinivaas_35 (Jim) has already played some tournament games in the Academy Elo Standard rating system and his rating is already changed to 960. Now, the Academy Elo Standard rating cannot be edited for Jim.
As you can see, the rating cannot be edited because Jim has already played some tournament games in that rating system. And that’s why the following error message is shown:
