Point Formula Help
« on: February 19, 2006, 11:29:34 AM »
How would I set the formula to award pts for bounty chips kept.

In our league everyone gets a bounty chip with their buy-in at no additional cost.  Each bounty chip a players has at the end of the tourney is worth 2pts.

In the "Points For Playing" box on the game tab I put:  3+nbk The 3pts is what a players gets just for playing in the tourney.  when I run a mock tourney players are only awarded the 3pts for playing and nothing for the bounty chips they have at the end of the tourney.

Also is there a way to award points as follows.  If there are 10 players, 1st would get 10pts, 2nd = 9pts, 3rd= 8pts etc.

I have played around with the formulas for several hours and juts can't figure it out, i looks like I will be adding the points for each player manually.

Maybe there could be some formulas already made up like the pts. in reverse order style like we use in the next version.

Sorry if this is confusing.

Well, to answer this question, the formula is n-r+1.  That'll give 1 point to last place, and 10 points to first (assuming a 10 player game).

If you want to give players 3 points for playing period, there is the "Points for buy-in" right above that.  I'm not completely sure what you're looking for though.

Thanks again Tim,

How would I set it to add 2pts for each bounty collected.  I also want to make sure that the players who wins the tourney get credit for their own bounty chip too.

would it be n-r+1+nh+nbK  or n-r+1+nb+nbk

I think you're looking for: n-r+1 + (2 * (nb+nbk)) .  That's the ranking points, plus the number of bounties times two points per bounty.

Hey Guys/Girls

Im new to the Tournament Director website... and its great system. I'm currently using it as a demo verison... with 10 days left to go.
Myself and a friend love the software to bits!!  One question we would like to know is...
We are running a 10 week tourny where, points are paid out as below...

1st   500
2nd   400
3rd   250
4th   170
5th   120
6th   90
7th   70
8th   50
9th   30

10 Points For Playing
10 Points For Knocking A Player Out (20 Points For 2...etc)

eg: you knock 3 players out, and you come 2nd... you should get:
10 Points for registering
30 Points for knocking players out
400 Points for coming 2nd.

Total: 440

Now... the thing is... how the heck do i put all of that into formula?
I have set up in the prizes tab the points for places... (as well as cash for 1st, 2nd, 3rd)
is this possible?

You can accomplish this in a number of ways.  Here's one way

Points for playing: "if(r == 9, 30, if(r == 8, 50, if(r == 7, 70, if(r == 6, 90, if(r == 5, 120, if(r == 4, 170, if(r == 3, 250, if(r == 2, 400, if(r == 1, 500, 0))))))))) + 10"
Points for hit: 10

Here is a stupid Noob question for you all...is there a break down of definitions for the formula commands?  Like r=?, n=?...ect.


I'm just really new to this program and I'm sure I have just over looked this in the program somewhere.

Yep, they are listed in the user manual (Help tab, or press F12), and they are listed right there on the Points for Playing dialog.

What is sqrt(r)2 supposed to be?

i figured out the problem on that formula.  the 2 wasn't suppose to be there, i have no idea why i put that.  it worked on 2.1.2; now it doesn't wanna work on 2.2 can someone help me out.

working formula placed on 2.1.2 = ROUND(120*SQRT(n)/SQRT(r)-5)

thanks

and if anyone else have a point formula please share

Bug.  I'll fix this in the next release.

In the meantime, use all lowercase to work around this bug:

round(120*sqrt(n)/sqrt(r)-5)

 :D  in the 2.1.2 ver, i initially placed the formula in lower cases and it gave me error so i CAPS'd it.  now in 2.2 it needs to be lower case.  kinda funny how it worked out like that.  thank you sir for your help!
