Hey anyone know why some games are designated as not utilised for ratings or rankings when playing online? I had one player drop early and a second just 2 moves from the end. Wondering if that may be the cause.

It's probably the use of Loon Lakes map. It's currently still in beta so rankings won't count.
Not counting rankings based on drops will only encourage sore losers to drop to prevent losing points, so that's probably not it.

That is assuming you play on Snellman.
Then Loon Lakes would be the one likely explanation indeed.
In which case you can find under "Info" something like
"Status Running, last update XXX ago (excluded from statistics and rankings)"

Another, but much less common ranking exclusion is if the admin added "option loose-adjust-resource" to the game log to change resources, especially vps in an auction game.

Another reason is if the same player plays multiple seats.
