EXPERIMENTAL RANKING

ELO-SYSTEM BASED RANKING

Based on the well known ELO formula, but with different parameters respect the flawed Fifa ranking.
-what is the difference respect the World-football elo ratings ranking? The ranking elorating.net is very slow to react to recent results, due to the small constants used. Here the constants are setted to have a ranking better reflecting recent results. Another difference is that only national teams playing actively in the international football are ranked, no teams like Northern Cyprus or Vatican City or Somaliland. Furthermore, ELO ratings.net does not correct the ranking when some result is changed for rule violations, so it is heavily distorted.
-what is the difference respect the Fifa elo world ranking? The Fifa ranking, started in august 2018, is ever slower than the eloratings.net, the constants used are too small. The Fifa ranking is also mathematically wrong, because violate the zero-sum rule on which the ELO system is based. Fifa has two rules (no losses pf points in the knock-out stages of the main tournaments, and the half win for a P.S. win) that cause an abnormal inflaction of points over the years.
