Using the Tournament Stats script, the Clan Directors will be naming a First Team (Doubles-Triples-Quads plus 2 reserves) 11 Player All-Star team along with the Top Player Award.
Can you elaborate more on this? What are you guys going for? Most wins? Best win percentage? In case of best win percentage, is there a minimum number of games it takes to be eligible? In case there is, which number is that? What is/are the tiebreakers and what is their order of importance?
Also feel free to explain details that might have escaped my questions.
Can anyone answer that?
Doesn't look like anyone can. Hopefully though it's not win percentage (where a player with a 3-1 record, for example, would beat a player who's gone 19-7). Net win rate, i.e. wins minus losses, would be the fairest method, with win percentage being factored in where there is a tie.
I'm not a huge fan of defining rules/formulae after games are played, but since it appears there is no previously decided method, I'll give my thoughts on the subject.
Personally, I'd consider a 25-0 performance better than a 28-2 one, but net win rate wouldn't represent that fairness. That noted, I think win percentage is the way to go, with the need of a minimum number of games played for eligibility (so we don't fill the all-star team with players that went 100% as 1-0). Tiebreaker would be net win rate, so a 6-0 doubles player would lose to a 7-0 doubles player.
Let's not forget no player was allowed to play more than 30 games. I'll throw some numbers that I briefly pondered just as an attempt to get the ball rolling.
90 total games (290 spots) - for MVP and reserve all-star team consideration, I think a minimum of 20 games would be appropriate (6.9% of that clan's spots).
20 doubles (40 spots) - for doubles all-star team consideration, I think a minimum of 3 doubles games would be appropriate (7.5% of that clan's spots).
30 triples (90 spots) - for triples all-star team consideration, I think a minimum of 6 triples games would be appropriate (6.67% of that clan's spots).
40 quadruples (160 spots) - for quadruples all-star team consideration, I think a minimum of 10 quadruples games would be appropriate (6.25% of that clan's spots).
These numbers could change according to CD's/community's will, I really just wanted to get the ball rolling. I didn't quite like the minimum of 3 doubles games, but if I raised it to 4 I would have to set triples minimum at 9, quadruples minimum at 16 and total minimum at 29 to keep things proportional. 20/3/6/10 was a good way of balancing proportions and I wanted the original draft to be proportional, but I'd personally like 20/4/6/10 a lot better.
