DDC rankings: Top 25

Rankings are listed in each division for which I have results. Only tournaments from the last five seasons count. Next to each player's rating score is a list of their scoring tournaments, in descending order of how many points they got for it. If you're a statsmonger and want to check out who/how many/where/when, you can look at the master list of points.

If you would like to mess with the parameters used to produce the rankings, change the numbers in this form.

How these rankings were figured

These rankings are by division only. When you play in a tournament, you only earn points for the division you play in.

The ranking process has two steps, fixed and relative. In the fixed step, you get points based on your place, according to a formula. That number is multiplied by a number that depends on the level of the tournament (there are four levels). Those point totals are used to give everyone a preliminary rating.

Then I do it again, using a different formula to award points. This time you get points for who you beat, depending on their rating. So beating Harvey gets you a lot of points. The tournament level is figured in (in a much smaller way than in the first step). The idea behind relative ranking is that it takes care of a lot of the intangibles - for example, the level of a tournament will be dependent on the number and strength of the teams there. More and stronger teams will result in more points being awarded. That's also why the larger divisions have higher point totals.

Now you know. If you're really curious, check out the script library to see the code that generates the rankings.

There's also a page that allows you to tweak some of the parameters to see what happens to the rankings.
