2018 Sims 4 World Ranking
« on: December 11, 2017, 05:48:48 AM »
2018 Sims 4 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 a) three regular Tournament challenges, or b) one Major and one regular Tournament challenge.

The goal for this year is 50 ranked players. Jump in and help make it happen.

So, here's how the team calculates the World Ranking. Each of the 14 2018 Tournament challenges has a column in the 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 (Joe is not counted), 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 2018 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 the 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

New for 2018 is the addition of two Major events in the season. If you have limited time and are forced to pick and choose which events to participant in, then do not miss these two events because each of the Majors is worth two regular events.

With two events in the books I thought I'd post the unofficial top 10 players. It's "unofficial" because a player needs to participate in 3 events to earn a World Ranking. All of the top 10 players participated in both the vampire and handiness events except lesleyj42...she missed the first event, but squeezed into the top 10. She will not make the "real deal" March 5 World Ranking because of the participation requirement. But, if anyone is itching to know the top heavy hitters, here we go...

christinal3106          .578   
LenaLJ          .568   
cyclonenic          .567   
GlazeyLady          .561   
Rainbow Dash          .543   
MomOfMany          .530   
HelenP          .519   
oshizu          .516   
reggikko          .513   
lesleyj42          .509

Hmmmm...we're getting down to the wire in the Rug Rats event and four of the 10 players listed in the above "temporary" ranking have not posted scores. Hopefully, they all will today because tomorrow the official ranking comes out. *fingers crossed*

One of the four just submitted the score, I'm not sure if it will keep me in the lead though.  Still, I am just happy I finished.  :)

3 events are in the books now, so the World Ranking is official. :) I always just take everyone's WR to three places, but wanted to show how close it is at the very top between Lena and GlazeyLady and needed to carry it out another place. Wow.

We already have nearly half of my goal of 50 ranked players by the end of the year which is awesome. Great participation so far this season.

Wow, look how close this is! I can't believe I made it into the World Ranking!  :o


LenaLJ            .6247   
GlazeyLady     .6242


@Metropolis Man Um ..., are those scores meant to be that high?  :o

Edit: I have realized that it is a lack of a decimal point in those scores that is confusing me, they should look like this right?

.624.7
.624.2

Or maybe Americans do that differently from us Kiwis? (Sorry if I'm offending anyone, I'm just trying to make sense of those scores).

I don't know if reading through how the World Ranking is computed will help you or not, but basically it's comprised of two parts -- the actual performance part (how many players you beat in an event in relation to how many you could have beaten) and then participation. Participation use to be weighted less, but I bumped it up to 50%. So, it's a big deal if players compete in at least 10 events over the course of the season because they'll receive the 50% participation component of World Ranking -- performance and participation each contribute 50%. So, over the course of the season because of participation a player's World Ranking moves closer and closer to 1.

Look at it like follows- add a 0 to the end of all other scores. Metro just had to display 4 decimal digits as Lena and GlazeyLady would both be .624 otherwise.

With House Hunters now closed, the World Ranking has been updated to reflect those results. Quite a few players have been added to the ranking since HH was their 3rd event, so welcome all new players. :)

With the Bucket List event now in the books, I updated the World Ranking. GlazeyLady and Lena hold onto their top spots at #1 and #2, but christinal3106 jumped up a couple spots and now sits in 3rd place thanks to her great performance in the Bucket List event. Nikitachi also jumped up quite a bit.

These players are not in the World Ranking yet, but I wanted to give a shout out to first-time Tournament participants: Rinkils, LazyKatie, Nomac, and MissSeaGal. Thanks for participating in the Bucket List event.

And finally, welcome to the World Ranking, fivebyfive.

The World Ranking is now up to date with the closing of the Romantic Interests challenge. One thing of note is that was the 10th challenge of the season and a few players -- not many -- have actually participated in all events so far. So, what the means is they now have their participation component of the World Ranking at 100%. Whenever they finish their next event, I'll be able to drop their worst performance. So, to really maximize ranking participation becomes a big deal for players who can invest the time in many events.

The ranking is now updated to include results from Baby Boomer. Several players made nice jumps in the ranking with their good performance in that event -- oshizu, Tynynounours, and sdhoey. The gap at the top between GlazeyLady and LenaLJ got a bit smaller now that I was able to drop Lena's DNF in Tricks and Treats (Baby Boomer was her 11th event). With the upcoming season Finale counting double, I predict that whichever player does better in that event will end up being the champ for 2018. We'll have to wait and see.

It really is. And guys...guess what? We have more in the World Ranking now, then at the finish of last year. That's really big news. I do not need to tell anyone that Sims 4 is in its twilight, but I am hoping the changes the team has made this year made participation more inviting. And even if you have not participated in one event yet, you CAN earn a World Ranking this year -- just jump in Scout Troop and the Finale and you're golden. I really want to see that 50 player number this year. It's so close!

The final 2018 World Ranking for the season is now posted.

We fell just a tad short of my goal for 50 participants this year, but I am very happy given 43 total players made the ranking which ended up being more than last year.

Wow...what a battle the entire year between GlazeyLady and LenaLJ. I honestly had no clue who would end up winning the overall title....GlazeyLady was on top most of the year, but if Lena had won the Finale and it being a Major and counting double, then it's hard to say. Lena is no stranger to what it feels like to come out on top with several championships under her belt, so I knew she would be a threat all year long, but this is new territory for GlazeyLady at the top -- congratulations!

I want to thank all 2018 Tournament participants. I hope the Challenge team offered all of you a nice variety of events to bring your games to another level, but most importantly, just have some fun.

We'll see you in 2019 for more Sims 4 competition.
