Game scores – how are they calculated?

BGA

I haven't been around here for a while and so much has changed... Congratulations on the progress!

I see that games now have scores and you can sort games by popularity. How are those scores calculated? And are they available via the API?

Cheers and keep up the good work!

@philryuh or @trentellingsen will maybe correct me, but, my impression is that there is an algorithm that covers the five star scores we give into a 100 point system and averages it out.

Yes that is true. And we'll also be switching to a 100 point system for all users as well. The 5 star system was something I felt strong about early on but I see good reasons to switch it now.

Seems like it ! Maybe they also a base starting point also ? to avoid 1s and 10s ?
