2017 Rankings - End of Season update Page 2

Recommended Posts

Take something harder!  Changeling icon already yours so time for some chump bashing! 

Congrats to all my fellow Doggers.  Worked out there's 155 tournie appearances been put in this year between us so great showing on the scene and been some great moments.  Let's aim for 200 for 2018!   

Good luck to those who have made the masters and the Doggers masters.  A win at   The latter event earns more bragging rights though ?

Really impresed with us having 9 out of top 40 players, with only a couple of events left in the calendar.

Looking forward to seeing what eveyone brings to the table for the clash of the titans!  Undecided if I stick to my off the wall lists of the year, or take something harder.

Go hardcore! Dogfather becomes Dogmaster!

This looks like the final standings of the year. with just 2 weeks left.  Lots of Red for this as there was a drop off in attendance of the final 2 big events.  Still an amazing result overall. 8 of the top 40, players(20%!).  Lots of the guys around the 100 mark as well.  Honetstly the best level of play this year in AOS, you needed 350 plus to get in top 16, increadible. 

Big thanks to all the club gamers who have been around the scene this year, its been so much fun.

Looking at several names to push on next year,  if they can attend enough events.

16 - Ricky Mee

29 - Matt Lyons - Best in Faction; Nurgle

Thanks for updating in my stead @Paul Buckler - I've edited your post to sort the formatting as I'm fussy like that! ;) 

Solid placings all round, time to start afresh for the 2018 season. We'll use the season rankings all year round I think so that everyone starts on a level playing field.

Shouldn't these things calculate ELO, rather than awarding higher scores to those playing the most tournaments?

Once people hit 4 tournaments, the number attended is somewhat irrelevant. I have noted above when people have played less than 4 though as this is important.

Basically the rankings take into account just your 4 best placings over the season. So whilst attending many more than that gives you additional chances to place better, someone playing only 4 events could be way higher than someone who has played 10 (there will be examples of this within the rankings I'm sure).

Hopefully that makes sense, not sure I've worded it very well.

Thanks for the clarity Chris. I just obsess about this stuff due to my job. In fact I think all this could be a good study to give a student in terms of data collection, study design, and evidence generation.
