Micronational Chess League
The Micronational Chess League, commonly referred to as the MCL, was founded on 28 January 2019 by the Empire of Barbettia. The purpose of the MCL is to unite micronational chess players and to unite micronations of all kinds to play chess with one another. The MCL organizes its own tournaments, maintains its own individual rating system (based off the Elo rating system), and facilitates casual and official games between individuals. All MCL games are played on chess.com. There are currently 9 members.
The MCL has a rating system based off of the Elo rating system. The formula is this:
A= Player Rating Before Game
B= Opponent Rating Before Game
K= K Factor (200 before a player has both played 10 games and lost 3 games. 30 after a player has both played 10 games and lost 3 games.)
S= Score (0 for a loss, 0.5 for a draw, and 1 for a win)
R= New Rating
Ratings begin at 1000. The MCL maintains an absolute rating floor of 100 for all ratings. Thus, no member can have a rating below 100, no matter their performance in MCL events and games.
