GRAND TOURNAMENT Scoring System

Postby rick.leeds » 01 Feb 2013, 13:27

With the re-boot of Grand Tournament 2 one question I asked players is whether they wanted games to be ranked or not. As the responses were strongly for Ranked games, I now want to find out which scoring system you want to use.

Below, in each post, there are a four systems discussed. The merits of each system are laid out. Please take the time to review them before coming to a decision.

You have 2 votes which can be used in any way you want, and you will be able to change your vote if you want.

The poll will close in 10 days.

Please, if you are not part of the Tournament, do not vote.

Original site scoring system.

Postby rick.leeds » 01 Feb 2013, 13:31

This is:
SOLO = 12pts
2-way draw = 6 pts each
3-way draw = 4 pts
4-way draw = 3 pts
5-way draw = 2 pts
6-way draw and 7-way draw = 0 pts.

This was the proposed system for the Grand Tournament 2. At the time, the site used the same system. It doesn't now. The system focuses on results based upon game outcomes only. Simple, it would need a complex secondary scoring system to partner it to split positions.

Mille System

Postby rick.leeds » 01 Feb 2013, 13:38

This awards points as a modified proportion of 1000:

Solo = 1000 points
2-way draw = 400 pts each
3-way draw = 233 pts each
4-way draw = 150 pts each
5-way draw = 100 pts each
6-way draw = 67 pts each
7-way draw = 43 pts each.

Basically, the points you score is based upon the following calculation:
[1000-(n x 100)]/n
where n=number of players in the draw UNLESS the game results in a solo victory when the score is a simple 1000.

It is a fairly simple system and would require a more complex secondary scoring system. It produces results which are weighted towards a solo victory.

Pos238S system

Postby rick.leeds » 01 Feb 2013, 13:51

The results are based upon the following calculations:

A solo scores 100 pts.
A draw scores dependent upon the following system:
- multiply the number of SCs the surviving players have at end game by 7.
- give each surviving player a position based upon number of SCs held at the end of the game.
- multiple this product with the following fractions to give a Pos238 score:
1st place: 7/7
2nd place: 6/7
3rd place: 5/7
4th place: 4/7
5th place: 3/7
6th place: 2/7
7th place: 1/7
- Divide each player's Pos238 score by the total of all Pos238 scores and multiply the quotient by 100. THIS is the number of points the player earns.

This system takes into account the number of SCs held at the end of a game and builds into it where a player is positioned based on that. It doesn't take into account game outcome.

MTS system

Postby rick.leeds » 01 Feb 2013, 14:05

This system is completely different. Rather than basing results on a single game, it bases them over all games; rather than scoring the result of the game scores are based upon how you played a certain power compared to how everyone else played that power.

So how does it work? Well, it's based upon this formula:

PS = (Psc1 – [Tsc ÷ G]) + (Psc2 – [Tsc ÷ G]) + (Pscn – [Tscn ÷ G])
................................................N

where:
PS = Player's Score (the number of points the player scores in the tournament)
Psc1 = Player's score in Supply Centres in game 1
Psc2 = Player's score in Supply Centres in game 2
Pscn = Player's score in Supply Centres in the nth game
Tsc = Total number of Supply Centres held by the power the player controlled in game 1 in the whole tournament
G = number of games in the whole tournament
N = number of rounds in the whole tournament
If you solo your game, you are said to have finished with 34 SCs as that power and everyone else in the game to have finished with 0 SCs.

Basically, if you play Austria in game one, you will score compared to how every other player who played Austria did, based upon the number of SCs you finished the game with. There are no fixed scores until the final game of qualifying is complete therefore. This is because, after round one is complete, a provisional score can be posted for round one comparing your result as Austria with the results of Austria in each round one game. When Round Two is complete, your round one score will be modified by how results for Austria in both Rounds went.

It is more dynamic, as the final points total isn't calculated until the last game finishes. This means you cannot be sure of your final position in qualifying until the final game of qualifying is finished. It also means that if you draw a "weaker" power, you are compared with how everyone else plays that power in other games, rather than how that game finishes. It doesn't take into account games as a single scoring entity, however.

THIS one probably meets more closely the site system in that it rates your performance as a player of the powers you play, rather than scoring your performance in a single game.

[Asked above but post removed because I wanted to put all the descriptive posts in the right order.]

[1000-(2x100)]/2
= [1000-200]/2
= 800/2
= 400

Apologies if I have misunderstood.

Absolutely right. I have edited.
