New Fomula Needed - help please
« on: February 07, 2008, 10:07:27 AM »
Hey Guys,

Long time user first time poster,

For the past year I have used the simple formula n-r+1 for my tournaments and this did the job perfect.

Now our games have got bigger id like to create a formula that rewards higher placed players with a larger gap of points from the lower placed guys.

I still would like the first people out to be awarded points.

Having looked through pretty much all the formula posts I didnt see one exactly what I was after but did get a few ideas.

This is what i have in mind:

Use the same formula as in past so in a ten player game 1st = 10, 2nd = 9 etc etc

Then multiply those points by the number of players so above would be 1st = 10 x 10 2 = 9 x 10 etc etc

Then as an extra bonus give the winner an extra 50pts, 2nd extra 30pts & 3rd extra 20pts

Every so often we do a double points tourney so would also need the same formula but giving twice the points.

I hope all that makes sense and someone can help me

Regards

Carl
