Any Interest in D1 "Alt-Scores"?

Postby jay65536 » 14 Sep 2020, 15:42

Hi guys,

As those of you who played in 2018 might remember, part of what I'm doing as I'm observing the PDL is tracking the D1 games and using them as test cases for a new scoring system that I am developing. In 2018, I offered to publish the results of the re-scored games--not particularly because I was suggesting changing the league's scoring system (that's up to the people running the league), but because I figured it was only fair to offer to show the results to the players whose games I was observing.

So now in 2020 I am making the same offer. I'd be interested to know whether the players in D1 would like to see the results of my own scoring system on the games that have been played.

I will say that my system is much more similar to the 2020 system than it would have been to the 2018 system, though there are some big differences with both. I will also say that my system, as of this moment, does not change who is in the top 5 compared to the actual system (although it does contain a tie where the actual system separates two players).

I put a poll at the top to gauge interest. I will not be offended if there is none. It's just an offer.

I voted for after all the games are concluded, but I would suggest showing the standing after each game. A different scoring pattern may have people playing different ways in future games.

While I agree with the overall sentiment, I'm just going to show post-round snapshots because this is not the official scoring system of the league and shouldn't be treated as such. I am also keeping an unofficial tally of the D1 scores, but the official tally is recorded elsewhere (I think there's a link in one of the subforums).

The official scoring is below. I'm the one that has been updating it (though not the one who came up with the system) and I see no issue in presenting alternatives. Of course people may have played different under a different system but it's still can be a healthy discussion.
