This pantheon shows the best Godville arena fighters in the current contest season. The score is based on Elo rating, which takes into account outcomes of all prior duels. Top 100 heroes of this pantheon will be rewarded with an achievement based on their final standing at the end of the season.

Each "season" lasts three months: January through March, April through June, July through September, and October through December. When you look at the standings for the pantheon, it will tell you how many days are left in the current season at the top of the page.

Rating Calculation

At the beginning of each season, each fighter has an Elo rating of 500. (However, fighters are not ranked in the pantheon of duelery until completion of the first duel.) At the conclusion of each duel, the winner's Elo rating will increase and the loser's Elo rating will decrease by the same amount. The magnitude of the shift is based on their relative Elo ratings and the K-factor (or weighting factor) for the duel. (See Wikipedia for an explanation of K-factor). The K-factor determines the maximum possible point shift at stake in a given duel. For example, if player A wins the duel, player A's score will increase by X points. If player B wins the duel, player B's score will increase by Y points. The sum of X and Y is equal to the K-factor. However, the values of X and Y are not necessarily equal. The player with the higher Elo rating will gain fewer points with a victory but will lose more points with a loss. Based on observation, the K-factor for each duel is 25.
