Some of you have asked me for detail on this, and I have investigate i with the new programmers considerable help. This is what we deduced. It is straight forwar, and easily understandable.


Here's how it works.

Camp member count is determined by the average number of people in a camp who made at least 1 fight pick for an event. Your performance sticks! This means that if you were in Camp A for UFC 92, then leave for Camp B for UFC 93, your performance and presence for UFC 92 is still associated with Camp A. The camp member count is not skewed in any fashion if a camp is formed after the first event of the season. Camp member count is used to decide what "weight class" a camp is in. All further rankings discussed below will be relative to the camp's weight class.

Once an event takes place, all camps in a division are ranked on three criteria: average earnings rank, average point score rank, average pick percentage (AKA "win-loss record") rank. By factoring the point total you penalize "cherry-pickers" who try to earn higher camp rankings by only picking the results on easy fights. By factoring in the pick percentage you reward the camps who had the pick right, but just missed an ending detail, which is understandable.

At the season's end, your average rank for each of these three categories for the entire season is calculated and stored in an ordered table. These three numbers are then added together and multiplied by .7 plus.03 per event participated in. This last bit was added to prevent someone from forming a camp at the season's end, doing good for 1 event, then running away with the crown.

The camps are then ordered by the lowest total and given that number as their final rank.

Do you have determined what tiebreaker will be used in case on a numeric draw ?

I know that we were tie with ATT after event 9 last season and Dothemath told me that if the tie would have prevailed both team would have been declared winner of the season.

My though for tie breaker is that the number of first place among the 3 category should determine the winner, if still tie then the number of second place.
This type of tie breaker is widely use in racing.

Another tie breaker possible would be to put the 2 tie teams face to face without counting the other teams ,that way a winner would for sure be declared since we have only 3 category.

a tie is a tie, and both camps would receive badges

It just seems the earnings rank is so far out of whack. Im not the only one who feels this as I have read a good number of threads on it in the past few years.
