This isn't a massive moan, more my OCD kicking in, but a simple thing like maths is not hard to get right.

So far, this season, my 'keeper has played 4 games, and had match ratings as follows...9, 10, 9, 10

By my (very meagre) math skills, to get an average of that is the following: 9+10+9+10 = 38
38 ÷ 4 = 9.5

So why then, does my keeper have an average rating of 9.4 for these first 4 games?

Like I said, it's not a big deal, but if we are playing a game which is run effectively by AI and algorithms, 0.1 either way in a different feature of the game could mean real change

Basic rounding and sums they should get right. I agree

Maybe the match ratings are recorded as a decimal but only given to us as a whole number? That's the only rational explanation I can think of.

Yeah it has to be a rounding issue but it's still poor. Why not just round match rating to nearest whole number then average those ratings
