PSA for Tournament Organizers

Post by Don.Gato on Wed Dec 31, 2014 4:45 am

For gods sake people, quit over complicating your scoring systems in tournaments. All this complicated stuff based on number of players etc. is pointless. Allow me to outline a VERY simple system, used principally in sailboat racing.


1st place = 1 point
2nd place = 2 points
3rd place = 3 points
4th place = 4 points
5th place = 5 points

Lowest score once all races are finished wins.

That's it. No need for scaling everything to number of players or any of that bullshit, it all just works automagically.

In case of ties, number of 1st place finishes decides placement.

Also has provisions for people who don't start a race (Late or something, whatever), they usually get scored for that race at 1+# of racers.



You are making it too hard for yourselves people (well epg anyway, nobody else tries to make tourneys)

My question though, is what if there aren't 5 people in a room??

Exactly the same, just no 5th (or 4th or 3rd...) place
