Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

Player of the Year (POTY) race:

As I understand it, POTY is determined by results in the Big 5 competitions: Yoda, Obi Wan, Vader, Rey, and Padme.

points for Yoda:
1st = 7
2nd = 5
3rd = 3
4th = 2
5th = 1

points for Obi Wan, Vader, Rey, and Padme
1st = 5
2nd = 3
3rd = 1

If this is not correct please correct it.  If it is correct, perhaps we should start a POTY thread with this info??

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

As of today I calculate the POTY race at
Yoda (final)
7 - OZ
5 - dwight
3 - tenedab
2 - Edu
1 - TE

Rey (final)
5 - Tono
2 - Tenedab
2 - TE
(because Tenedab and TE tied for 2nd I added points for 2nd and 3rd and then averaged (3+1)/2 = 2)

Padme (final)
5 - Tono
3 - tenedab
1 - TE

Obi Wan (interim)
5 - TE
3 - Tono
1 - dwight

Vader (interim)
5 - dwight
3 - TE
1 - HTS

Adding this up, the POTY race stands at
13 - Tono (= 0+5+5+3+0)
12 - TE (= 1+2+1+5+3)
11 - dwight (= 5+0+0+1+5)
8 - tenedab (= 3+2+3+0+0)
7 - OZ (= 7+0+0+0+0)
2 - Edu (= 2+0+0+0+0)
1 - HTS (= 0+0+0+0+1)

There could still be some shuffling in Obi Wan and Vader that could see the order change... a very tight race for POTY

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

I believe we also give 2 pts fir each yoda cup win. So dragan, OZ, Jamie and Aiur get 2 extra points. At least this is how we did it last year.

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

Yep, tight race indeed. I hadn't realised til I saw this that tenedab pipped me in Padme, he had Goerges and even more impressively Withoeft in his team, well done sir! He also had significantly more correct picks in Rey than myself or Tony.

I agree that we said 2pts for Yoda Cup wins btw.

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

I agree to the need for a POTY thread with scoring spelled out clearly.
For example, in cases of a draw, do we agree with dwightcharles's method above? If there were joint winners of a tournament, they would get 4 each? Joint 3rd .5 each? What do we think? We need to decide to avoid contested results in close seasons like this one.

Thanks for your comments, TE, even though I have some difficulties with your British accent, sir.

Well, I was a bit miffed, if not gutted, at first, not that I'm suggesting you're spawny. You know your onions. The last couple of weeks was a damp squib for me, whereas you had a corker. But I'm chuffed for you and I'm not going to do my nut in over it.

We need to get this sorted, because it is likely to make a difference to the final tally.  And better to do it now, while there's still uncertainty as to what the final results are.

My vote is that in case of a tie in a POTY points category, the points be divided as described by myself and TE.

Please weigh in...

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

With the 2 extra points for a Yoda cup win (as per Adunar, above), I believe POTY standings are currently:
TE 14
Tono 13
Dwight 11
Oz 9
Tenedab 8

But it is going to be a photo-finish.  If I can hang to Vader, it will all come down to Obi Wan (men's brackets). Mathematically, TE, Tono, and I all still have a chance, but the advantage is with TE who has a 15 point overall lead over Tono.

Maybe we need to implement this for next year? It's going to be controversial to change the scoring for this year.

Re: 2017 TDC and YODA CREW Competition Champions

Yes we need to have this sorted. The split points are a compromise some sports give the 2nd place points to both, some share the points between 2ns and 3rd.. hard to say.

I prefer the first option. They both got a 2nd place perfomance and both should be rewarded with 2nd place points. What do you guys say?
