What's TrueSkill™

TrueSkill is a rating system for players of a game. It was developed, patented, and trademarked by Microsoft Research and has been used on Xbox LIVE for ranking and matchmaking service. This system quantifies players’ TRUE skill points by the Bayesian inference algorithm. It also works well with any type of match rule including N:N team game or free-for-all.

2 vs 2 example:

import { rate, Rating, quality } from 'ts-trueskill';
const team1 = [new Rating(), new Rating()];
const team2 = [new Rating(), new Rating()];
// Assumes the first team was the winner by default
const q = quality([team1, team2]);
// q is quality of the match with the players at their current rating
const [rated1, rated2] = rate([team1, team2]); // rate also takes weights of winners or draw
// rated1 and rated2 are now arrays with updated scores from result of match
 
console.log(rated1.toString()) // team 1 went up in rating
// >> Rating(mu=28.108, sigma=7.774),Rating(mu=28.108, sigma=7.774)
console.log(rated2.toString()) // team 2 went down in rating
// >> Rating(mu=21.892, sigma=7.774),Rating(mu=21.892, sigma=7.774)

1 vs 1 example:
using shortcut functions for 1vs1 matches

import { Rating, quality_1vs1, rate_1vs1 } from 'ts-trueskill';
const p1 = new Rating(40, 4); // 1P's skill
const p2 = new Rating(10, 4); // 2P's skill
const q = quality_1vs1(p1, p2); // quality will be low from large difference in scores
const [newP1, newP2] = rate_1vs1(p1, p2); // get new ratings after p1 wins
