Topic: Western Canada Points Update

Author: Will Original Message Posted: Sep 29 2011 4:50PM

First off, a huge thank you to Ben Wilkins for doing 100% of the result entering for this points update. It took a LONG time to do, because we ran the last tournament on Charts that don't exist in the netfoos database. Ben got everything worked out with hard work and outside the box thinking, so we are now officially set for points. In the future we will be able to do points updates within a couple days of a tournament ending.

The only changes that have been made to this from the last update is that the results from the West Edmonton Mall Fireball tournament are entered. The only way to gain or lose points is by playing in events that are run in Western Canada.

Please read the following guidelines explaining how the point system works:

Western Canada Foosball Points are calculated using the Elo system which is a major point system used in many sports and games to accurately keep track of players points. In each match a player plays they are either awarded or deducted points based on the result of that match, also bonus points are awarded for placing well in events.

In an Elo system, if two equally ranked players compete against each other in an open event, the winner is awarded 16 points and the loser is
deducted 16 points.

If a high ranked player beats a low ranked player, with 400 points separating the players, the higher ranked player would win 2 points, while the lower ranked player would be deducted 2 points.

If a high ranked player loses to a low ranked player, with 400 points separating the players, the higher ranked player would lose 30 points, while the lower ranked player would gain 30 points.

There are also bonus points awarded for placing near the top of an event. The amount of bonus points is determined by the amount of players/teams in an event and the caliber of the event.

The above examples are for Open events. Decrease all the gained, lost, and bonus numbers in half for Expert or Amatuer events.

In our system we are using a base points for players based on the players rank in 2008.

Players not residing in Western Canada are included in the points system for the newest publishing after each tournament they attend. If they miss one they are still in the system, but will not be posted in our

Player ranks for upcoming tournaments are based on points.
The parameters for players ranks are subject to change based on point fluctuation in the group of players.
To be ranked Pro Master in this point system you must have more than 1500 points or win multiple Open titles in Western Canada.

To become ranked Pro in this point system you must have more than 1300 points

To become ranked Expert in this point system you must have more than 1000 points

To drop a rank you must fall 100 points below the threshold of points - I.E. for a Pro to become an Expert they would have to drop to 1200 or less

I,too,would like to thank Ben Wilkins for his efforts.

However,using my new one of a kind Ramjag Computational chart,which
can only be used during a full eclipse of the moon,I have deduced that,
while Ben's efforts are laudable they have,in fact,produced an inescapable
but obvious mathematical error.

The aforementioned computational chart leads to the true and just Western Canadian Points Update that says I should actually have an
additional 119 points.

Hey, I beat that guy!

Author: Robert G Reply #5 Posted: Oct 2 2011 10:03PM

Why am I not on the list????

Author: Will Reply #6 Posted: Oct 3 2011 3:16PM

Because you haven't played in any tournaments in Western Canada since at least April 2008.

Either someone in BC would have to organize a major, or you would have to come to Alberta or Saskatchewan for a tournament to get ranked.

thx will

Author: Pixel Reply #8 Posted: Oct 12 2011 1:22PM

I'm confused - how is it that Hugo, Nhu, and Sean are on that list, but I am not?

Author: Will Reply #9 Posted: Oct 12 2011 8:57PM

I deleted your name out along with Kane, Tony, Ryan, etc (players not living in western canada that also didn't attend the most recent tournament). I mistakenly did not delete the other mentioned players. For the record you have 1567 points.
