A small rating doubt?

In recent cook off my rating of cook-off decreased but overall increased. I mean should it not decrease my overall ratings because my cook-off rating also decreased…?
Anybody wants to share something about this…just curious :sweat_smile:

There is no special significance in the rating mechanism for ‘increasing rating’ or ‘decreasing rating’. It is just a rating delta given by a formula, and whether it is positive or negative isn’t a particular concern for the mechanism. And since the Cook-Off ratings and Overall ratings are calculated independent of each other, there will be a difference between the two deltas, since almost all the parameter values involved (except of course the contest rank) would be different for the two ratings.
