Another Points Formula Question
« on: December 03, 2008, 10:36:37 PM »
Need a simple formula please

Based on # of entries, all players get something for playing
bonus points for cashing based on places played
higher buy ins, worth more points
making final table (top 10) worth extra
making final 2 tables (top 20) extra points


Thanks guys!

Hi there... ahhh if you could maybe tell us what kinda point spread you would prefer for all the above... its pretty similar to a formula I use so won't be be too hard... first place in my league usually gets about 900 points, but you might not want something that high =)

no, i don't want it that high.

a 50 man tourney right now goes:
100
49
48
47
46
45
44
43
42
41
20
19.5
19
18.5
18
17.5
17
16.5
16
15.5
15
7.75 21st-50th

In that 50 man tourney, the top 7 got paid, 10 made the final table.

What i want is a formula that first determines how many entries, the awards first a big amount, then the top cashers a good bonus, then the final table a bonus, then the rest of the field for playing

Code: [Select]
if(finalTable=1, 10, 1) * round(100*sqrt(n)/sqrt(r)) +  switch(r,1,500,2,300,3,150)
This is the formula I use, so I'll walk ya through it and you can change values according to how you wish

I don't know how to make the final 2 tables, maybe somebody else can help ya out there... You could do something like if(r < 20, x amount of bonus points, 1 and the final 20 people get whatever bonus points you decide...  So it starts off that final table gets whatever their ranking in accordance to number of players times 10... just a bit of a bonus for making final table
Then the round(100*sqrt(n)/sqrt(r)) part is the players rankings in regard to how many people played... basically the more people a person goes through, the higher his points... so 3rd place out of 20 people won't get as many points as 3rd place with 40 people... the 100 part can be altered to whatever number suits your formula needs

The switch part of the formula is the bonus points for top 3... it reads like this in english: if the rank is 1st give 500 points, if rank is second give 300 points and if the rank is 3rd, give 150... so you can alter the points given and you can add more ranks in the same way as I did...

if you need more help putting it all togather, let me know
