You've never heard of the zeroeth law of mathematics that makes this work out?

BTW, what game is this for future reference?

Geeez, how did you not know that? Simple math....

It's the new Common Core math standards.
Here I thought 1 + 1 = 2.

Yeah 100 posts.

Make it like Olympic figure skating where the lowest and highest scores don't count
2+2=5

obviously :P

Join the leaderboard that is *actually* #1 on the site! All friends of mine are welcome and anyone who prefers poptarts over fish!
Only if you play Destiny and Forza H2.

My theory was going to be that first there was the 3 and 4 star rating so the average was:

(3+4)/2 = 3.5

Then came the other 3 star rating which was averaged with the above average:

(3+3.5)/2 = 3.25

Which then was truncated to 3.2 instead of rounded to 3.3


Otherwise there may be a rating half life based on the instability of the person rating, and/or contain a coefficient of spam, but that gets a bit more complicated.
