Uses any kind of matchmaking rating system to calculate relative skill of players, usually to match relatively similarly skilled people against each other in multiplayer. May use variables besides those signifying skill to match people.
Alternate names: MMR, Elo rating system
The first video game about Matchmaking Rating was released in 1998.
This tag is only for the use of MMR, Elo, or other systems in order to match players of relatively similar skill against each other. Not for non-matched player skill rating systems that are only for show.
