ARMED! uses the elo rating system, like many other competitive games (Chess, Dawn of War 2, League of Legends). Elo ratings are generally in the range 1000-3000 and represent your performance relative to other ranked players. Interesting fact: a player rated 200 points higher than his opponent is expected to win 75% of the time.

Note that your rating will not be a very accurate representation of your skill until many games have been played. Don't worry about losing rating, it can always be raised up again!
