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:
