ELO System London
Yep, ELO Rankings. I’n my spare time I made this spreadsheet that will calculate ratings given to each player, using tournament results and attendance lists. Its a much fairer system in comparison to Ranking Battles because the points you gain (and maybe lose) depends on whos in the tournament. Its not a flat number, so tournaments with Highly Rated players will be worth more points in comparison to a tournament with nobodies. Also the points you gain depend on your current rating, if your highly rated and you come like 8th, your clearly not as good as your meant to be
Heres an example using random number generator to randomise places. (Will not be saved). See how the person who earns the most points isnt me with my 4-0 score, its Rayokarna because he has a 3-1 score and only 100 points, because he was below the average whereas I was above the average. Also note how Fuzzyness loses points for coming 8th because he is way above the average and performed poorly.
Hopefully this shows what the skill level for each player is “relatively” and it will let us do some proper seeding with no arguements instead of “hmm, i think we should seed x”
Currently only in affect for Blazblue and Arcana Heart, this list will be deciding who gets seeding placements in tournaments in future. I may be doing it for other games in the future.
