Can someone help me out?
Here's what I want my setup to be:
Last place: 5 points
every place after that, 1, then 2, then 3...and so on.
knockouts: 1 point
first place gets double points then added his knockouts on the end.
Example:
7 players, 7th (5) 6th (1) 5th (2) 4th( 3 + 2 (knockouts)) 3rd (4 + 2(knockouts)) 2nd (5 + 1 knockout)) 1st (12 double + 1 knockout)) (13 total)
Is there anyway I can get a formula like this? It's probably not possible.

Here's what I can come up with to put in the 'points for playing' box: nr+nh
n=number of players
r=rank
nh= number of hits (knockouts) a player has earned.
Since you have the first out as 5 points, I would make a prize, nonmonetary, points, 5, and award award it to the first person out. I'm not sure if there is a way to add it in to the formula, but if there is, I'm sure someone else will let you know. At the very least, this will be a good start.

if(rank = 1, position * 2, if(position = 1, 5, position)) + numberOfHits
