Help with points
« on: November 10, 2015, 01:16:24 PM »
Not sure if there is a quick fix (easy way) of doing this.

Been running my league for a few years now, not a lot as changed, but last year i changed it slightly but it made it very hard at the end.

In the league you points for where you finish on the night, points for knocking a player out, extra points if you knock the previous months winner out'
points for playing and points turning up early.
All the points are set up in the different fields it is not a formula.

We play 12 games, with the best 10 results counting, all this is ok,
What I am doing now is the points for playing and the points for turning up early count for all the 12 games.

What I had to do last year was just before the last game I had to go through every players and adjust thier best score by the points they had
for playing more than the 10.
Obviously there where some players had played 10 some 11 and some all 12.

Is there an easy way to do this.

Help would be great.

It sounds like you play 12 games but only want to count each player's top 10 tournaments, right?

If so, you can do this using the top() function in the Overall Scores formula.  It will help to see your current Tournament Scores formula and Overall Scores formula (from your Stats Profile), but generically you would do something like this:

sum(top(10, scores))

scores is a list of the scores calculated for the player for each tournament.  In your case, there would be 12 numbers in that list.  The top() function takes those 12 scores and drops the lowest two, leaving the top 10 scores.  The sum() function then adds them up and gives back the sum.

If you're not actually computing anything with the Tournament Scores formula but just care about the points each player earns in each tournament, you could leave the Tournament Scores empty and use this for the Overall Scores formula:

sum(top(10, listPoints))

listPoints is already computed for you, and contains a list of the points the player earned in each tournament.

Sorry Corey

I did not explain it proper

The best of 10 formula is what I already use, but it takes the best 10 results.

That is what i want but I have points for playing.

So if the points for playing was 50 then a player playing 10 games would get 500 a player playing all 12 should get 600.
But the best 10 scores won't do this.

If you want players to receive all points, not just the sum of the top 10, then change then 10 to a 12 (or a higher number, if there's a possibility of more than 12 games), in the Overall Scores formula.  Or, just sum(scores).  Or if you're just adding up each player's points, then just use points as your Overall Scores formula.

Or am I still not understanding?

Think its me Corey not explaining proper.

The league that I have run the last few years is set up

points for ranking
points for hits
points for knocking out the last winner
points for playing (registering)
points for being early (15 min before start)
.

We have always had the best 10 scores from 12 until last year, we then thought it fair if you have played all 12 games
then you should get the points for playing and the points for being early.

Last year just before the last game I had to go and add points to players that had played 11 or 12 games.
This was not very easy to do, I had to make sure that I was adding the points to one of their better games for it to show up.

Just wandered if there was an easier way, so ideally I would be looking for something to do the best 10 from 12 (which I have)
but to add the points for playing and turning up early on games 11 and 12 to players totals.

Cheers

Oops, I guess I forgot to reply to this.  Sorry about that.

I don't see any way to do what you're asking.  I can't think of a way to write a formula that would include additional tournaments for some players.  Further, you can't pick only part of their points.  If there was a way to include the extra 2 tournaments from some players, you couldn't include only the points in the buy-in and points-for-playing formula.  So unfortunately it looks like manually is the only way.

No problem.

Thought it might be like that.

Thanks for getting back to me.
