I have re-done the tourney with 23 players, it says that all players are in the database, I refresh and it loads a couple of tourneys press the info button and the  it comes up with a screen that says loaded and the names of the tournaments, all tournaments are finished and saved to disk. All filters set to none or any yet the stats page has nothing on it at all.
I will try to reinstall it to see if its a bad installation or not, but i need the stats tables

I have substituted the equation with the answers as this seems easier so now all i want to do now is add 2% per player over 10 entered to the total
I tried this formula but not to sure why it gives the wrong answer 1t should be 14 players coming first should be 1944
1800*1.08  or 8%
if(r == 1,1800, if(r == 2, 1440, if(r == 3, 1230, if(r == 4, 1050, if(r == 5, 900, if(r == 6, 750, if(r == 7, 600, if(r == 8, 450, if(r == 9, 300, if(r> == 10, 150, 0))))))))))+if(n > 10, (n-10)*.02, 0)


1st, 1,800.08
2nd, 1,440.08
3rd, 1,230.08
4th, 1,050.08
5th, 900.08
6th, 750.08
7th, 600.08
8th, 450.08
9th, 300.08
10th, 150.08
11th, 150.08
12th, 150.08
13th, 150.08
14th, 150.08

Thanks a lot, I will try it :)

 "This formula is as close as I get get with your description.  Note that it gives 2% of 1500 points for each player over 10 in the tournament.  So, as in your example, if there are 14 players, it would give an additional 8% to _every_ player."

From the first post i think what it actually means is that an extra 2% for every player over ten to the sum

 i.e if came in first then the points would be (120% of 1500)=A then 2% of A would be add to A,  if 12 players then 4% 13 players 6% and so on

second place would be then the points would be (96% of 1500)=A then 2% of A would be add to A,  if 12 players then 4% 13 players 6% and so on

if under ten players then there would be no added percentage to the total

Here is a sample of something i am trying to work out, but this brings up an error is there any tutorials on how to use the formula

what i am trying to do

if there is less or equal to 10 players and you come first in the tournament then your points are 1500*120% else your points are 1500*120% + 2% added to your score for every person over ten players , i am not a mathematician so would like some help please.

if(n=<10) and (rank=1),1500*120%,1500*120%+2%*n-10

Hi, I need a Formula for this pointing system as this is what i wil be using

Each player’s points for a particular tourney will be calculated based on 1500 points for every game as follows:
1st = 120%, 2nd = 96%, 3rd =82%, 4th = 70%, 5th = 60%, 6th = 50%, 7th = 40%, 8th = 30%, 9th = 20%, 10th and lower = 10%.

• With 10 or less players the point scale will be the same. 1st place would receive 1800 points (1500 x 120%), 2nd place would receive 1440 points (1500 x 96%) and so on.

• For every player over 10, 2% would be added to the total points earned for each position for that particular tourney. In the 14 player tourney we recently completed, 8% (14 players - 10 players x 2%) would have been added on top of the regular points for each position. 1st place with 14 players would receive 1944 points. That number comes from adding 8% to the 1800 points for the regular 10 player point scale (calculated as 1800 x 1.08). 2nd place would be 1555.2 points (1440 x 1.08). This would change the difference in points earned for 1st place for the 14 player game vs. 1st place for the 10 player game (for example) to 8% instead of the 40% difference we currently show. And with our current method, the 40% difference only gets wider with each finishing place (2nd = 44% diff, 3rd = 50% diff...7th = 100% diff) but with the new method it would be 8% across the board when comparing 10 player points to 14 player points.

This alternate/new point system addresses a couple of holes that are present in our current point system:
