does it matter in rated games how many vp you win by? or is the ranking only based on win/loseIt's probably only the latter, the amount of VP's often doesn't resemble how close a match was.
That's right. VP totals (and maybe turns taken) determine the rank each player has in the game, and that alone is used to determine how much the result will change your rating. So for example resinging wheh you are hopelessly behind will not be any worse for your rating than loosing by 1 VP.
Are you sure? What about 3 or 4 player games?
