I just played a game on Basic Xplorers and only won 5 points when 12 points were lost. The net is usually +1.. any reason why this would happen? I have been on this site for more than 9 years and never seen this happen.

This just happened to me again, I beat someone with more points but only gained 6 when they lost 20.

Please read these as they may help you to understand the ranking system better.
I noticed you have quite a few games with one player and this will affect your rank win points too.

Thank you for the reply. I know these pages well, and have noted the final points since I have been here something like 10 years ago. This line is what I am not seeing consistently in the last 2 months: "(note: always equal for both players)". I have ended a game where someone loses 20 points, but the other 2 players only gain 6 and 2. The point differential is -12. I beat someone with more rank points than me, they lost 20, but I did not gain the equal amount. I will wait a day or two then likely email. Thanks again!

Oh, I also meant to say I think the rank system here is better than anything I have seen anywhere in my life. I teach math and love it and honestly love the algorithm, I have simply seen it not work in a few games!

The net points for a game are often (close to) +0, but not when:

You have played one of your opponents many times before but he hasn't played you as much (relative to the number of games you both play in total) and of course vice versa.

This scews the DOF (different opponent factor) in the ranking calculation to be small for you and big for your opponent.
This leads to less points gained for you then your opponent lost.
