Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Another Points system that works
« on: August 12, 2009, 05:29:50 PM »
Hello Everyone.

This is my first post on here, so hopefully I get it right.

I have had the TD for about 2 years now, and absolutely love it.  Corey is a Genius!  Recently, I was having problems with my program, and Corey walked me through the steps of getting it to work again.  I asked several unrelated questions to my problem, and Corey referred me to the Forum, which I never knew existed. 

As I was viewing a lot of the forums, I noticed all of the different point schemes that people use in their tournaments, and thought I would share my points scheme for my tournaments.  We run a league of 6 months/12 weeks.  We play every other Saturday and average 20 players.  We take $2 from each person's buy-in and put it in an envelope, and at the end of the 6 month season, we have a tournament of champions, where the top 8 players in the league play for the "free" money.  When we started this tournament, we had problems with the point system because several players were tied in points.  We had to figure out a way to only have 8 players, so anyone who was tied for points below 7th place would play a small turbo tournament, and the winner(s) would then play in the T.O.C tournament.

We have since modified our point structure so that it is next to impossible for 2 people to have the same points at the end of the season.  This is the points scheme we use.

Buy-in = 0.25 points (Everyone who plays gets 0.25 points, gives incentive to show up every tournament)
1st place = # of players / 0.50 (20 players = 10 points)
2nd place = # of players / 0.33 (20 players = 6.67 points)
3rd place = # of players / 0.25 (20 players = 5.0 points)
4th place = 2.25 points
5th place = 2.00 points
6th place = 1.75 points
7th place = 1.50 points
8th place = 1.25 points
9th place - xx place = 0 additional points.

After looking at some of the other members' points structures, I wonder if anyone else has problems with people tying at the end of the season.

Please let me hear all your thoughts on our point schemes, and if anyone has anything better, I would love to hear it.  We are always tweaking with our layouts.

I have the formula for TD to calculate the points if anyone wants it.  Just email me and let me know.
