Feel free to tell me to piss off, too.
Ok, not really. Hopefully I can clear things up a bit here without talking in circles and/or sounding like an idjit...The ranking system is based on the overall averages of 3 important statistics:
- average member earnings per event
- average member score per event
- average member win/loss percentage per event
When looking at the fight camp page and select (the default) "Display: Full Season Totals" you will see these 3 columns and the overall season average per team. You can sort by the column by clicking it.Example:
Emfleek, your team is currently in the Middleweight division
. For this season you guys have the 6th best score per event average in the middleweight division, the 11th best earnings per event average in the middleweight division, and the 3rd best win/loss percentage in the middleweight division. To illustrate how you get an overall ranking of 5th, we can simply get the sum of these rankings, 11+3+5=18. There are 4 other teams in the middleweight division that have a lower sum than you, thus putting them ahead of you.
The ranks are comparative, and aren't judged on a curve. Being behind in a category by .1 points per event sucks, but this is MMA, not horseshoes or hand grenades ;-) To beat another team, you have to have better averages than them... and beat them.
It should also be noted that these totals are calculated based only on who is present in your camp and participates at the time of the event. Camp members that do not make any picks at all for an event simply are not factored in. If you boot a camp member, their performance while they were in your camp sticks. If you recruit a new member, only their performances while they are in your camp stick. A breakdown of who scored what for your camp can be viewed on the Fight Camp directory page, and selecting "Display: [then select an event name]". This will show a list of camp performances for a specific event. On this page there is also a link for each team under a "Breakdown" column. Here's how your fight camp did for for UFC 88
(nice job!). Here you can see who was present for that event. Member count (for ranking purposes) is determined by the average number of players present per event, which is why you see teams with 12.8 members, 11.2 members, etc. No, these camps don't have partial people or soulless terrorists in their fight camps, this is just the average number present per event thus far this season.
Hope this can clear things up a little, let me know if you have any other questions. I'll try to remember to check back in on this topic.
