The SportyHQ ranking system is different previous system. In summary, it does not reward as much for beating players that you are ranked higher than (i.e. expected to beat), but you are rewarded more for beating opponents that you are not expected to beat. Only time will tell have this will work, but has been used for a long time, so we should approach with an open mind.
Remember, the previous system also was not perfect. People in the wrong position would collect points by beating opponents they were expected to beat, and it was possible to get to 20 to 30 points above your actual fair matrix ranking.by
