2012 World Ranking
« on: December 26, 2011, 06:45:01 PM »
2012 World Ranking

The World Ranking has two basic components: a Wins component (65%) and a Participation component (35%). I wanted to design a very simple ranking system that was still an effective measure of player caliber. To receive a World Ranking a player must finish at least 3 Tournament challenges. So, let me walk everyone through how one's World Ranking is determined.

Each of the 2012 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 of 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 3 2012 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 65% of final score, so we take .845 X .65 and get .549. That’s Joe’s final Wins component.

The second component is the lesser weighted component (35%) — Participation (I'm actually boosting it 5% compared to its weight in 2010). 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 35% of final score, so we then take .30 X .35 to get Joe’s final Participation component of .105.

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

.549 + .105 = .654.

For a trip down memory lane, check out the Final 2010 World Ranking and the Final 2011 World Ranking.

With 3 2012 Tournament events in the books I was able to compile the initial World Ranking for this season. Not surprisingly, drift9999 is at the top thanks to his back to back victories. I have a strong suspicion that drift and Chuckles will be battling neck and neck all year ala ClayMask and NancyJ. We'll see. Lots of players can make moves to the top especially when I drop bad performances later in the year.

The World Ranking has been updated to reflect everyone's performance in the Attack of the Clones event. Great job to both Champions — Nutella and Claymask! Thanks to all who participated and gave it their best. It was a very difficult challenge, I know. :)

The battle at the top is getting more brutal as players continue to do everything they can to inch their way higher. I updated the world ranking to reflect everyone's performance in Teacher's Tourist Trap.

Wishmasters is now in the books and I updated the world ranking. The main big change towards the top is LenaLJ stole 2nd place away from Chuckles_82.

I updated the world ranking with the close of the Life States Challenge. Not too many changes, the biggest one is Nutella jumped from 5th to 4th. She has won 3 out of her 4 events this year. Wow! That's a hot record. Her participation component is the only thing holding her back since she was not in this season's first three events.

No change in position between drift and Lena at the very top, but with the close of the Consignment Store event, Nutella climbed to 3rd.

Still no change at the top between drift and Lena after the Animal Instincts challenge, but Chuckles jumped to 3rd.

We're winding down the 2012 season...only one more event — the Finale. I just updated the World Ranking with the results of the Celebrity challenge. No major changes. ratchie moved up a few spots, so hats off to you, girl. ;) And it's nice to see Pam get tossed into the ranking since she finished her 3rd event.

Even if Lena would win the Finale I am not sure if she could take down drift for the overall title. We'll see. It's been a really fun year, but I am looking forward to a little break. :) There will be another fun 12 events next year (thank you Carl for letting me do this one more year).

Wow..what a season! I want to give a big tip of the hat to this year's champion, drift9999. drift you have a plaque that will be made for you (courtesy of me) and will be receiving a future expansion pack free (courtesy of Carl). @drift—Please PM me your mailing address information for the plaque. Special congrats to runnerup LenaLJ who kept things very tight and was constantly breathing down drift's neck all year long. Lena you will be receiving a $25 Amazon gift card courtesy of Pam.

All in all, a fantastic year of events with 129 participants. Let's make next year bigger and even better! :) I will be posting the General Rules for next year's season as well as the rule sets for the first two events (starting in Jan) next week.
