How to setup point ??
« on: June 03, 2011, 01:29:08 PM »
Hi

in our tournaments we would like to setup and apply so that the final 9 players recieve point as below

1st = 100
2nd =90
3rd =80
4th =70
5th =60
6th =50
7th =40
8th =30
9th =20

and also so that it gives the final 9 the amount of points of people in the tournament
lets say there was 35 players in the tournament
first place would get 100+35 for a total of 135 ect
If you could explain how to apply the points for each tournament for 10 weeks which makes a leader board ladder.
can anyone help please ???

switch(r,1,100,2,90,3,80,4,70,5,60,6,50,7,40,8,30,9,20)

and also so that it gives the final 9 the amount of points of people in the tournament
lets say there was 35 players in the tournament
first place would get 100+35 for a total of 135 ect

The variable n represents the number of people in. So, just add that to the end (or beginning). But, we only want it for the top 9. and get switch(r,1,100,2,90,3,80,4,70,5,60,6,50,7,40,8,30,9,20)+if(r=<9,n,0)    <-- r stands for rank.

I'm sure there's an easier way to do the 1st to 9th place points, too, so don't be surprised if someone else posts an answer :) but this should get you started, at the very least.

Everything should be in the Help Me section, which I know is very comprehensive. However, if you're going to be running the tournaments the same way every time, then all you would need to do is to get the points in the points for playing set, the rounds and tables set, and anything else that will be the same no matter who plays set up. Then, save it as something like "Default One" - something to distinguish it as a default, but not the one that comes with the program. Then, in the preferences, you can point TD to load it up every time it loads up, and it's automatically done for you!

Another way to give 1-9 points is when you set up the prizes you can add a points amount for each rank on the right side of the new prize box. I use this formula to give each player points for the game n-r+1. it gives each player 1 point plus 1 point for each player that went out before them, I.E. player out in 9th gets 10 points.
