New year, new scores. And a slightly revised scoring method that improves the accuracy of the comparisons between smaller and larger teams, compensating for an inherent bias in the calculation of the small division that overvalued teams near the middle of the pack and undervalued those near the bottom.

The gory details for the math-inclined: The issue was caused by only 150 small teams listed, however the rankings shown took into account the one- or two-member wonders that never made the table of teams, so that it was possible to be ranked 200 or even 250. Previously, for small teams, each game was scored against the highest number in each column (so that if there was a 263rd listed, everything was calculated out of 263). What's happening now is that all small teams' ranks are determined only within the 150 teams listed and calculated "out of 150".

As an example, the Harry Potter Fans are shown on the monthly standings page as 81st in the Daily Game and 129th in the Easy Game. The highest numbers in the respective columns were 208 and 200, so pre-2016, their points would have been scored as 81/208 and 129/200. Out of the listed 150 small teams, the 81th was actually the 74th best score (seven better teams were too small to make the list) and the 129th was the 102nd best (so 27 better scores were by "too small" teams). Both are now compared to the listed 150, giving their new ranks as 74/150 and 102/150. A bit of Excel magic made this possible.

The net effect of the error was that particularly the non-GM individual games were rated too highly in the middle ranks but too low near the bottom. This is now corrected, all sizes of teams now use their standings within the displayed (=active) teams of their division and are thus fully comparable.

Team Heroes and TvT are not affected by this - those games have always been contested by active teams only and thus used a fair formula.

Near the top, the effect is relatively small: The only teams in the top 25 whose ranking has changed by more than 1 against what it would have been under old rules are The Moops (18th would have been 21st) and Phoenix Rising (21st would have been 19th).

I've been planning to make this change for a few months now, but didn't want to do it in mid-year so that all scores for the same annual table use the same formula.

On to our better balanced, shiny January 2016 scores:

Thanks MiraJane, though I would point out that we (Mossbacks) finished in 2nd for last month also. I'm certain that our esteemed Team Leader Judith, will be by soon to deliver our official acknowledgement. Feels good to run with the big dogs. :-)

Thanks for the Excel magic, Wes.

MiraJane, thank you for the hat tip and compliment. You amply expressed my sentiments -- no need for me to elaborate. So, I'll be off now to share our standing and applaud my plucky teammates. smile
