    Question Ranking System Code?

    I am trying to figure out a short line of code, but is stumping me a bit. It is a win/loss/tie ranking system. I know how to get the win loss percentage. but if a person has 100 wins and 12 losses, that person is lower than a person with 1 win 0 losses and even a person with 10 wins and 2 lossses. I want people to me compensated for matches also, but I don't want a guy with 1 win and 1000 losses to be higher that a 10 and 9.

    Any help will be greatly appreaciated.
    Thanks

    ranking=(win/total games)*(win-loss)

    the higher ranking, the better the team. (I think that was what u were looking for)
