Ok, so theres the age old question of which coast/region has the better player and its just a “so and so said such and such” argument, there’s never been a number assigned to it.
Basically, I’m thinking that MAJORs adopt a sweepstakes weight system on the placings for each event so we can determine which side has the better/more consistent players.
Give each placing in each event a point based on the rank: I.E. You have 8 players -
1st place is worth 8 points, 2nd place worth 7, 3rd place worth 6 and so on and so forth.
At the end of the tournament, you tally up the scores and divide them into their respective regions, i’ll use the Final Round results as an example:
1st Justin Wong(East Coast) - 8pts
2nd Gootecks(West Coast) - 7pts
3rd Iloveu(East Coast) - 6pts
5th Mike Ross (West Coast) - 5pts
5th Eric Valencia “EXIST”(Midwest) - 5pts
7th citiofbrass(East Cost) - 2pts
7th Kensou (South) - 2pts
If you were to tally it up: East Coast - 16, West Coast - 12, Midwest - 5, South -2
And you could add in the results for ALL the events to see how each overall region did to see which did better. Or you could only add in the ones you feel matter. And if you only wanted to see how the sides stack up in ONE event, then you can give weight to every placing and just tally it up from there.
I think its a good way to see how strong certain areas are in certain games and it could just further the shit talkin’ debates
Was just wondering why no one has really done this yet… we used to do this for highschool debate tournaments.
