TrueSkill Ranking System So, what is so special about the TrueSkill ranking system? In short, the biggest difference to other ranking systems is that in the TrueSkill ranking system skill is characterised by two numbers: The average skill of the gamer (μ in the picture).The degree of uncertainty in the gamer's skill (σ in the picture). The ranking system maintains a belief in every gamer's skill using these two numbers. If the uncertainty is still high, the ranking system does not yet know exactly the skill of the gamer.
