General Discussion / Re: Trophy Ideas
« on: December 05, 2006, 02:05:31 PM »
We just finished up our first season in our League and had four trophies awarded.  3 of the trophies looked like this one:

One for "Top Money Winner" (Green), one for "Player of the Year" (Black), & one for "Mr. Consistency" (Red). 

For our TOC, we got a big perpetual cup trophy that went to the winner.  His name and the year will be engraved on the base and each year it will pass to a different player.  Here's a pic of the winner and his trophy:

Unfortunately, it wasn't me this year :(

Starting next year, I'm going to be giving each tourey winner one of these pins (the black pin)

Just as an extra little something for the win to brag with, plus we have extra cash since we don't need to re-buy the TOC trophy.

The players loved the trophies and it seemed like some were more interested in winning those than the money!  One player who busted out of the TOC tried to buy his way back in just to win the trophy.  He offered one of the players still in about half of the 1st place prize from his own wallet.  He was half joking, but I think he really wanted to do it.

If you're interested, the small trophies and the pins I got from  The Big Cup I got from  Both had excellent service and fast delivery times.

Can you just use nicknames for everyone?  For those who don't mind their full name to be used, make their nickname the same as their full name.  This way you can just export nicknames and everyone should get what they wanted.

Thanks Corey,

For the record, this is just a small inconvenience and, in the grand scheme of things, really not a big deal.  But if you could work your magic and get it into TD, that would be awesome.

Thanks for the input Afroats13.

A question I have for you though is do you have to enter a different formula into TD each time you are going to have a different number of money winners?

If yes, then it is the same situation I am having.  I'd like to have a variable that would know the number of money winners instead of having to manually change it each time.  I'm not sure one exists currently though.

If you don't need a different formula each time, then could you give me more details?

Thanks for the input, at least I know I'm not crazy when I thought I couldn't do it.

As for the extra bonus for money winners...
When I developed the league, I talked to the members and they had said that they would like to get a point bonus for finishing in the money.  We wanted to be able to give a little separatation between players in the money and those that bubble out.  This way, a player who is in the money gets the benefit over the one who constantly makes the final table, but can't "seal the deal".  The player who is the lowest "in the money" finisher only gets his buy-in back, so it is a little extra bonus for that player as well.

We finished off our first season with this point format and everyone loved it.  It's a large scale, but it eliminates ties and it is still very competitive.  In our last event of the season, we had 6 players legitamately competing for the last 2 seats for our Main Event (seats are earned by points awarded throughout the season).  3 of the 6 finished in the money with the top 2 taking the seats.  As players busted out of the tournament, everyone stuck around to watch the drama.  It was pretty cool!

Anyways, thanks for the help again.  TD is great and my league wouldn't be the success it is without it!

Hello there,

I'm looking to see if anyone can give me some assistance in "automating" my points formula.  My points formula currently needs to be manually adjusted whenever there is a change in the amount of players that place in the money. 

For example, if there are 3 money winners, my formula would look like this:

If there are 4 money winners, my formula would be this:

I would love to be able to find a formula that would automate this, so that I didn't have to manually change these numbers when there is a change in money winners.  I have been trying to use the "in the money" (m) variable, but I can't seem to put together something that will work for me.

Any help with this would be appreciated.
