I would speculate with this;

Your standing is determined by your "Puzzle Score" relative to the other players.
Your puzzle score is an x point moving average of your scores in a puzzle. This is a worked assumption from some of Tzz's findings. Say, for example, your hearts score is a 3 point moving average.

Possibly, the scorses for your previous six games are as follows; 5, 18, 24, 18, 2, 11

Your first moving average is (5+18+24)/3 = 15.3
Your second is (18+24+18)/3 = 20
Your third is (24+18+2)/3 = 14.6

Scoring could potentially give more weight to recent sessions, but for explanation purposes, it doesn't.

Now, what we have in this example of the average changing from 15-20 happening is that your low score of 5 dropped off since it was bumped out the average equation due to the game that just finished occuring. Despite you having a lower score than your previous game (18 instead of 24),The fact the 5 is no longer there pulls down the moving average.

If any OOO employee is out there, how close is this to reality? <3

It's hard to explain with text... I hope you unders

also, if you log on with your home being in one archipelago, then swap home's to another archipelago the archipelago score will be different. Even though winning, it'll notice you're in a new arch and correct your score to that arch.

Is ocean-wide not what matters because you could be grandmaster compared to everyone else in the ocean and then if in your arch there is 12 people with ult, 8 with leg, 3 with gm and 1 master, your relative standing to everyone else in the arch will be lower than ocean wide where you are better than most other people.

Am I correct?
