The rating is the average of your starting rating (except people who defaulted to 1000) and all your round ratings. So as the season goes by there will be less and less change each week. Just like last year.
Actually since the cell that initially held the 1000 ratings is included in the total ratings (and setting it to zero would result in an error) for these players I have entered their ratings as determined by the rounds they shot in the first event.
