2016 World Ranking
« on: December 18, 2015, 07:40:30 AM »
2016 World Ranking

The World Ranking has two components: a Wins component (50%) and a Participation component (50%). It's a simple ranking system, but still an effective measure of player caliber. To receive a World Ranking a player must finish at least three Tournament challenges. So, let me walk everyone through how one's World Ranking is determined.

Each of the 2016 Tournament challenges has a column in my Tournament spreadsheet. Individual cells in the challenge columns are filled with a ratio of how many players a player beat in that challenge in relation to how many could have been beaten. Let’s take a look at Joe Blow and how Joe did in the first 3 events of the season. Let’s say the field size of event #1 is 25 and Joe finished 8th. That means he beat 17 out of a possible 24 players (I don’t count Joe), so Joe’s event #1 cell is =17/24. The 2nd event was larger, 30 players, and Joe did even better and finished 6th. Event #2’s cell is =24/29. Event #3’s participation dropped to 25, but Joe pulled out all the stops and won it. Event #3’s cell is =24/24.

Down the spreadsheet after all the individual challenge columns is the “Sum of Wins” column. This is just the total of all of one’s ratios in each challenge column. So, with the first 3 events in the bag, Joe’s “Sum of Wins” column is 2.537.

Next comes the “# of Events” column which is a simple count function for all challenge columns. Joe has only participated in three 2016 Tournament Challenges so far, so his “# of Events” figure is 3. The “Sum of Wins” is then divided by the “# of Events” for an “Ave of Wins” column:

2.537 / 3 = .845.

Now it’s time to add the weight for the Wins component. The Wins weight for everyone is 50% of final score, so we take .845 X .50 and get .422 That’s Joe’s final Wins component.

The second component is Participation. Everyone who submits a score in a challenge receives a 10% participation bonus figured into their ranking. So, there’s a 10-event cap at which point a player receives 100% of the Participation component. If someone participates in more than 10 Tournament challenges, then a player’s best finishes will be used to compute the World Ranking.

Okay, so Joe Blow has participated in the first 3 events. His participation bonus is .30 (10% per event). Participation counts for 50% of final score, so we then take .30 X .50 to get Joe’s final Participation component of .15.

Joe’s World Ranking is his final Wins component + his final Participation component:

.422 + .15 = .572

Lena took over World Ranking responsibilities from me last year after my hard drive crashed (thanks again, Lena!). She will be computing the first World Ranking of this season shortly after the Satisfaction Guaranteed challenge ends this coming Thursday night, but wanted to let everyone know it may not be until next weekend until we see updated ranking due to real life stuff.

After the first 3 challenges have been played its time to look at this years first world ranking.

Nutellas strong performance in all challenges have brought her to the top in the world ranking, which is well deserved.
But others are coming up close too, and it has only been 3 challenges until now. Remember all can happen.

@LenaLJ do you maybe have a spreadsheet we could use to keep track for ourselves? I'm excessively curious so I know I won't be able to resist visiting this page every minute after the "final buzzer" to see my updated scores (I completed my 3rd challenge now so I'll officially be one the board when it closes tonight *party*)

@Magpie2012 this is in the plans, but the sheet is not really reader friendly now, and i am not really energized these days so im not getting to fixing it :)

The same goes for updating the worldranking after the last challenge, it will be done during the day today, just came home from a few days at my moms.

The world ranking is now updated with the scores from the writers challenge.

As Nutella won another challenge, she is staying save on her first place, thekatie0409 is still right behind her on her second space.
Alot of players joined the world ranking this time around as they enterd their 3rd challenge.

The clubbing is now all done, and 20 clubbers signed a score, and the @thekatie0409 and @Minnie Mouse came out on a shared victory.

This now means that @thekatie0409 catched @Nutella and they have a point difference of 0,007 so its extremely close at the top for now!

A total of 26 players decided to cook their hearts out in the last challenge.
But @Nutella showed up with yet another brilliant tactic and one another challenge.

As @thekatie0409 did not participate in this last challenge, @Nutella  regained her 1st Place on the leaderboard and even I climbed to a second place. But nothing is secure yet we are not even at the halfway point yet.

I noticed when I click on the links for world raking of past years i get a 'server error'. Maybe it's temporarily, but I thought I should say.

Metro cracked the whip and I got on it. I think the last 5 are working, but carls-sims-3-forum.com hasn't been redirected to the new address yet. It should be a bit later. I have a rule in place to *hopefully* fix that when the IP gets updated, but will have a look at it this evening if it doesn't work automatically :)

The collection challenge has now ended and all have gathered and counted their collectables.
@thekatie0409 ended up on top of the event, but her efforts did not change anything in the top.
@Nutella is still holding strong on the first place, but the next 4 contestants are lying very close to each other.

And now we have a total of 8 players who completed all 8 challenges until now!

A double update from the last two challenges (live came in between so i am a little bit behind)

We now have a total of 6 players who have competed in every event this yeah which means i have to pull out their worst score.
Big congrats to @Nutella , @reggikko , @oshizu , @Ginj , @sdhoey and @Eighty8Keys
