Need help with Formulas
« on: February 27, 2006, 07:38:46 PM »
Ok, I really did try before posting, but am embarrassed to admit I just can't get my head around the formulas for points systems.  If I simply want to award points based on final ranking, and scaled by the number of players, how do I code that formula?

...say there are 10 players in the tourney:

1st place  = 10pts
2nd place = 9pts
3rd place = 8 pts.
and so on....If there were 25 layers 1st would get 25 points...

I would also like to play with a version that awards a point for busting out another player.  can anyone help me understand this?

Mr Player <<<------Truly feeling like a moron

The formula is n-r+1.  That's number of players minus rank plus 1 (so everyone gets at least one point).  There's also an option to the right of "Points for Playing" called "Points for hit." "Hit" means busting a player out of the tournament, so all you'd have to do is put "1" in that option.

Ya might try reading the help text within the program.  All of this is right there ;)
