3 factors formula
« on: November 26, 2013, 08:33:11 AM »
Hi! I want to create a formula based on 3 factors - position, buyin & number of players.

The position factor looks like this:
1st 30
2nd 24
3rd 20
4th 16
5th 14
6th 12
7th 10
8th 8
9th 6
(from 10th down you don't get any points)

Buy-in factor
0-19 EUR is 2
20-34 EUR is 2,5
35-59 EUR is 3
60-119 EUR is 3,5
120-179 EUR is 4
180-249 EUR is 4,5
250-499 EUR is 5
500+ EUR is 5,5

Number of players factor
Up to 10 is 1
11-20 is 1,5
21-40 is 2
41-70 is 2,5
71-100 is 3
101-150 is 3,5
151+ is 4

rank = position factor x buy-in factor x number of players factor

The runner-up in a 120 EUR MTT with 45 registered players should get 240 points (24 x 4 x 2,5).

How do I translate it to a TD formula?

Not too pretty, but here you go:

switch(r, 1, 30, 2, 24, 3, 30, 4, 16, 5, 14, 6, 12, 7, 10, 8, 8, 9, 6)
* if(defaultBuyinFee < 20, 2, if(defaultBuyinFee < 35, 2.5, if(defaultBuyinFee < 60, 3, if(defaultBuyinFee < 120, 3.5, if(defaultBuyinFee < 180, 4, if(defaultBuyinFee < 250, 4.5, if(defaultBuyinFee < 500, 5, 5.5)))))))
* if(n < 11, 1, if(n < 21, 1.5, if(n < 41, 2, if(n < 71, 2.5, if(n < 101, 3, if(n < 151, 3.5, 4))))))


Using your example, here's what the awarded points look like:

 1: 300.00
 2: 240.00
 3: 300.00
 4: 160.00
 5: 140.00
 6: 120.00
 7: 100.00
 8:  80.00
 9:  60.00
10:   0.00
11:   0.00
12:   0.00
13:   0.00
14:   0.00
15:   0.00
16:   0.00
17:   0.00
18:   0.00
19:   0.00
20:   0.00
21:   0.00
22:   0.00
23:   0.00
24:   0.00
25:   0.00
26:   0.00
27:   0.00
28:   0.00
29:   0.00
30:   0.00
31:   0.00
32:   0.00
33:   0.00
34:   0.00
35:   0.00
36:   0.00
37:   0.00
38:   0.00
39:   0.00
40:   0.00
41:   0.00
42:   0.00
43:   0.00
44:   0.00
45:   0.00
