Formula for Our Chosen Point System
« on: November 22, 2013, 04:05:59 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to come up with a formula for calculating our points automatically. Here is our system:

* 1st place receives 150 points regardless of the number of participants

* The rest of our points scale down lineraly to zero. So for example, if we had a 10 man tournament, to calculate how much each finish is worth, we take 150 (base points for 1st) / 10 (number of participants) = 15

* We also award 10% bonus points based on how much that person cashed for. So if a player cashes for $20, they would receive 2 bonus points on top of the base points.

I'm completely lost on how to achieve this, or if it's even possible through the software. Thoughts?

((150 / n) * (n - r + 1)) + (totalWinnings * .1)

Sorry, put that in the Points for Playing field on the Game tab.

Great. Formula seems to work.

Question now is when I go to prizes after a tournament has ended, it shows that 0 points are being awarded. Did I miss something obvious?

There are several ways to award points to players: through prizes, through buy-ins, rebuys, and add-ons, and through the Points for Playing formula.  In this case, we're using the Points for Playing formula.

To see points awarded to players, look at the Points column on the Players tab.
