Post #5: RC Tournament Rating Calculation method:

To calculate a players RC tournament rating:
The players highest 1v1, 2v2, 4v4 or Global-50 rating is used.

If the players highest rating, is of a game type - with less than 200 games played...
we proportional blend the players next highest rating to obtain a RC rating.
The next highest rating - will "be weighted" with the number of games needed
to make up a 200 game history.

Example:
A "Player" has the below ratings:
1v1 = 1,740 and 257 games,
2v2 = 1,865 and 38 games,
4v4 = 2,206 and 104 games +
Global=2,165 and 1,215 games

This players highest rating is his 4v4 rating of 2,206 with 104 games.
To make up a 200 game average - we take his next highest rating, which is
his Global rating of 2,165 (subtracting 50 pts = 2,115)

This players rating is thus calculated as follows:
4v4(2,206 x 104 games) + Glb(2,115 x 96 games) = 432,464 / 200 = 2,162 RC Rating.

TD will assign the RC ratings, just sign up below with a "sign me up" comment.

Players Ratings used are from this leaderboard screen shot taken on Jan 6th.
Large pink dots are factored ratings, small pink dots are non-factored ratings.

Registration is now open.

To calculate a players RC tournament rating:
We use the highest leaderboard rating (200 game minimum)
Global rating has 50 points subtaracted from rating.

If highest rating is of a game type with - less than 200 games played...
We will proportional blend the players next higest ratings to obtain a RC rating.

The next highest rating - will "be weighted" with the number of games needed
to make up a 200 game history.

Ie: A "player" has the below ratings:
1v1 = 1,740 and 257 games,
2v2 = 1,865 and 38 games,
4v4 = 2,206 and 104 games +
Global=2,165 and 3,300 games.

The players highest rating is his 4v4 rating of 2,206 with 104 games.

To make up a 200 game average -
we take the next highest rating, which is his
Global rating of 2,165 - 50 pts = 2,115.
so.. the players rating is calculated as follows:
(2,206 x 104 games) + (2,115 x 96 games) = 432,464 / 200 = 2,162 RC Rating.

Players sign up by scrolling to bottom of thread and
commenting - anything resembling "sign me up".
TD will assign ratings ~ no math required 😉
