Image scores, the number of duels and number of wins do not add up as far as ranking images. Go check out Gary Fong contest and you will see what I mean. There are images with more duels that have the exact same amount as wins as images with less duels. Please explain to me how that adds up. For instance if an image has been in 40 duels and has 35 wins shouldn't it rank higher than an image that has been in 45 duels with 35 wins?

Actually, that is not necessarily true. All wins (and losses) are not equal as it depends on how good the other image that was. If my image beats an image with a very high ImageScore, that is worth more than if it beat one with a low ImageScore. Therefore, you can't look at the number of ImageDuels and percent of wins in comparison to other images with similar numbers. The ImageScore is used to rank images and is derived from the performance of the image against other images. There is a lot going on with ImageScores.

I hope that helps!

In the Gary Fong contest I want to understand how an image with 160 duels and 94 wins, an image with 163 duels and 98 wins is ahead of an image with 155 duels and 97 wins?
