Hello,

see:

Q: What are "global points"?

Replace

Points = Max(1, RoundUp(((1 - (Rank - 1)/(NumPlayers - 1)^6) * X))
This may change in the future.

by

Points = Max(1, RoundUp((((1 - (Rank - 1)/(NumPlayers - 1))^6) * X))
This may change in the future.
For teams, NumPlayers is replaced by number of teams.
The evolver's score is based on the score of the same ranking soloïst player. For example, if the 20th soloïst gets 52 points, the 20th (credited) evolver also gets 52 points in the evolver's competition.

Thanks, I'll add something to the FAQ about soloist vs evolver vs group global scores.

Also the ^6 isn't up to date, so the formula should read:
Points = Max(1, RoundUp((((1 - (Rank - 1)/(NumPlayers - 1))^5) * X))

I've updated the FAQ to make it more clear.

Sorry, didn't mean to change the type. You posted while I had the edit window open so I didn't see yours (=

The FAQ has been updated with the correct exponent of 5.
