Just a quick question, does anyone know how to score is determined? I mean obviously a win makes it go up, a loss goes down. But What are the specifics, what does a tie do, does the length of the match play a role etc.? Thanks if you know anything about it!

I think they're using the ELO rating system. Basically, bigger rating differences relate to how more likely the higher rating is to win, and the less valuable it is for the expected winner to win (or the more valuable it is for the expected loser to win).

How does your implementation of ELO work with a tied game. Does it pretend the game was never played or just does the usual calculation as .5 of a win each?

It counts as a 0.5 of a win. This is just a standard ELO rating, which also is used for chess and such. You can look up the exact idea behind it online.
