Rankings of zones [new formula!]

Post by Florent » 05 Oct 2009 13:11

We just switched the ranking formula for the zones: countries and regions.

The new way to compute is to take into account the top three players of each country into account.
We have observed this formula and the results are interesting and change more often. The most important thing is that it focus more on some players.

So, here is the formula:
Country points = 0.5 * Country 1st points + 0.333 * Country 2nd points + 0.166 * Country 3rd points

The current ranking is:

1. Hungary [97448.00]
2. Germany [96916.88]
3. Greece [96303.99]
4. France [96195.15]
5. Poland [95435.46]
6. Spain [94827.27]
7. Netherlands [94156.59]
8. Austria [93842.63]
9. Italy [93190.56]
10. United States of America [93122.26]

And the top 3 of these countries are:

Hungary:
1 kajczy 98458.72
2 nagy_mester_b 97293.53
3 davsonic 94724.76

Germany:
1 andreas_hitz 97385.49
2 djkueken 96821.41
3 hubsi_gll 95702.01

Greece:
1 mietsel 97043.53
2 subarakiasxxx 96348.76
3 leothegreek 93995.83

France:
1 naloun 97537.99
2 speeddu53 95229.14
3 zepset 94098.66

Poland:
1 dawid-dada 98458.72
2 plastunio 94073.92
3 olekjudo 89088.79

Spain:
1 nengg 96017.86
2 mario311 93733.09
3 c4t4__ 93443.85

Netherlands:
1 zooz 97748.45
2 mighty-mike 90762.10
3 cagieracer 90169.98

Austria:
1 prayer 98021.63
2 uebersoldier 89977.09
3 zuckerfrosch 89036.70

Italy:
1 are777 95412.10
2 falchi_davide 91748.92
3 babazz 89409.20

United States of America:
1 _evan_ 94336.42
2 solonar2 93613.50
3 tebylla 88497.31

We tested this formula on the 10/09 also, and the top 5 countries were:
1. Germany 97394.50
2. Hungary 97286.59
3. France 97277.00
4. United States of America 95527.25
5. Spain 95271.76

Thus, this calculation is still only an average 3 best players in the National Ladder.
It is then almost the same as only a first (or feel free 3rd player) with an accuracy of about 99,99%.

Better still would review the calculation of the entire national rankings. If you play as an active 10% of players, so I would propose averaged (added together), 1st player points, and the player, which is to place 5% and 10% of the player places the nation (out of 100k players, this would be a player in 1st place, and to 5k location and 10k) - or feel free to choose a different weight, but the overall ranking.

Under a fixed order calculation is certainly inappropriate Player's strength and skill of the nation.

i think that more players should count on this not only three from each country. at least the top 10 of each country

Fixed number of players rated the same sequence is still the same as select Top3, or Top 10 or Top100 ...
It is based on the number of active players, and choose whichever of each nationality.

While it's good that the rankings change more often - it is worrying that you completely ignore other "normal" players. You should change the formula again to reflect everyone, not just a few players. I don't mind that you put emphasis on the top 3.
