Test Elo backwards

Elo ratings are recalculated here backwards, from the latest games played in 2017 to the very first game.

The idea of this experiment is to check whether this method gives a better approximation of values of teams from start rather than an attributed given value.

Rankings can be sorted by name, date or Elo rating value.
