Not innately, in GLIKO games the RD (ratings deviation, stability of rating) effects the changes of rating so this will have time based effects but nothing as simple as most recent with a higher impact. I understand the question though as just like a football team or horse recent form means most.Question: In AREA or GLICKO, are newer games given greater weight over older ones?
Certainly with both systems though you can see the effct of recent games directly while older games get buried under history. Any dropoff in form or sudden brain enhancing drug performance effect would be quickly apparent
