It Was Tuesday – Honmei-Kappa Rank Update

Alen Lewis BisonIt Was Tuesday’s Ranking System is getting a quick tweak. The original system used denominations of 100 for every session. This made sure that the lowest performing player at least scored 100 Rank Points for participating. The problem is, although this is super simple, it doesn’t scale very well. The result was players being rewarded greatly for Round Robin sessions, but barely gaining any bonuses for when more players showed up for Double Elimination.

The new rules now allow for some scale. In sessions with less than 8 players, the base denomination will be 50 Rank Points. This means the last place player will receive 50 Rank Points, then the next level of players will receive 100 Rank Points, then the next players receive 150 Rank Points, and so on. The Headhunter Bonus will be slashed, based off of how many players are playing.

In a session where we get 8-15 players and run Double Elimination, the base denomination is 100 Rank Points. So, last place gets 100 Rank Points, with the next place getting 200 Rank Points, and the next place getting 300 Rank Points, and so on. Headhunter Bonus will be 200 Rank Points per defeat.

In a session where we get 16-23 players and run Double Elimination, the base denomination is 150 Rank Points. Last place gets 150 Rank Points, next place gets 300 Rank Points, and the next place gets 450 Rank Points, etc, etc, etc. Headhunter Bonus is 300 Rank Points per defeat.

I think you can see where this is heading. Hopefully, this allows players that place well against larger pools to earn bigger rewards, while keeping smaller sessions in check.

Now, without further ado, the current Honmei-Kappa Rankings:
