When the a player wins a PVP match, their rating increases, while the loser's rating decreases by an equal amount. The amount gained or lost depends on the players rating before the match.

When viewing battle reports you will be able to track your wins and losses. While in this view some agent names will show and some agents will not show. If the agent name is showing you can click on that agent and view some information about the setup of that agent, such as what weapons were used, and so on.
Note: This is what is meant by 'attacking team' and 'defensive team'. Whatever team is showing, and however your agent is equipped, when you are on the main PVP screen is the team that the AI will use to defend against another agent. The AI can use your team at any time, even when you're actively playing, in which case the attacking team you're using and the defending team the AI is using would be the same.
