Formula help please. Thank you in advance.
« on: January 04, 2016, 08:38:58 PM »
Hi Formula Gurus,

I'm looking for a formula that counts 5 points per placing up to 5th. Zero for last place. At 4th place, there is a point difference of 10points from 5th place, and 5 points again from 4th to 1st.
SO....if there are 10 players in the tournament, last gets 0, 9th = 5, 8th = 10, 7th = 15, 6th = 20, 5th = 25, 4th = 35, 3rd = 40, 2nd = 45, 1st = 50.
The amount of players will vary from 6 - 20. The 10 point difference always will happen between 4th and 5th places.


Also, 5 points are given for buy in. 10 points are given for early buy in ( cut off 15 mins before game ), 5 points are given for hits.

Anyway to do this?

Thanks,
John

For 20 players, would first get 100?

Can you create a quick chart for what you expect with 10 players, 20 players, and 6 players?

position * 5 + if(r < 5, 5) + (nh * 5)

The formula handles the 5 points for buy-in, plus the points for each rank, plus the points for hits.  For the extra 5 points given for early buy-in, I would create a second buy-in profile, identical to the main buy-in profile, but set Points to 5.  Use that profile for buying players in until the "early" time runs out and switch to using the main buy-in profile.
