Puzzle Scoring Adjustments
As a result of some of the feedback we've had (along with some common sense), we're adjusting how points are given out when puzzles close.
The current function for calculating points is:
Points = Max(1, RoundUp((1 - (Rank - 1)/(NumPlayers - 1)^7 * X))
We are adjusting the exponent (currently 7) to be 6. What this will mean is that there will be slightly less of a point difference between the top spots in a puzzle, and more of the lower ranks will get more than 1 point.
We're fairly confident that the best value for the exponent is actually below 6, but for now, we're sticking with this small change.(Fri, 07/27/2012 - 22:36 | 9 comments)
