For the same reasons that the stock market is a garbage indicator of economic health right now, any system you can imagine in order to critique would be prone to the exact same criticisms you're applying to the PDGA rating system. When you start targeting the system with explicit factors designed purely for its manipulation: it ceases to be a good system.

Any system with enough completely ridiculous parameters and inputs applied is going to crumble.
Exactly. You can't trick the math, and anything done intentionally to try and "manipulate" what "the ratings would be" is an experience in assumptions for which the current PDGA Player Ratings system was not designed; and accordingly, does not apply.

I'm also gonna go off topic:

I think that's just a shift in the same world. The new frontier, to me, comes from the breadth of the data available. The ability to develop a metric measuring player skill based on putting, approach, and driving elements and weighted according to the amount that each contributes to the variance in a round score.... that's where I see an actual "new frontier" for disc golf metrics. It comes from the expanded numbers available to us.

And yes I'm aware that's realistically limited to the pro fields reliably on UDisc putting in more discrete information, so it isn't really something that the PDGA is going to be able to implement on such a broad scale as the rating (which is why I see the rating having continued importance moving forward, getting what it does out of just a few easy to record factors is really solid).

The same numbers can also be interpreted as meaningless with regard to your point. There's a lot left to the imagination in the few numbers I mentioned.

Was looking at one of my fav player's (Simon Lizotte) stats and I ended up scanning over his ratings history and I saw alot of rounds not included for his ratings. But this event has me puzzled....

https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/44224

He shot a 975 rated round at an A tier event (DGLO) in round 2 which was not included. Rounds 1 (1032) and 3 (1024) were included. His rating at the time was 1045, certainly the 975 was not too low to be included. Why wouldn't round 2 be included in his ratings?

The round was more than 2.5 standard deviations below his current rating. This basic nformation about ratings was found by reading the PDGA FAQ's on ratings.




https://www.pdga.com/faq#t133n207051




[qoute]All rated rounds you have played and have been reported to the PDGA within 12 months of your most recently rated round will be Included in your rating calculation. However, if any one of those ratings is either more than 100 points below your average rating or more than 2.5 standard deviations below your rating – whichever number is smaller – that round will not be included in your current rating update and indicated with a No.[/quote]
