Tourney Trackerô has the most
flexible scoring capabilities available today. Below is an
explanation of the various types of scoring that is supported by the
software. Any combination of the scoring options listed below
can be used, meaning that virtually any scoring strategy is
round-based points: A set number of points, by round,
awarded for each game picked correctly.
Seed-based scoring: For
each game picked correctly, points are calculated one of five
different ways, based on the seeds of the teams in the game.
The rule can be varied by round.
|Winnerís Seed x
Point Value: The seed of the winning team is multiplied by
the point value that you select.
|For Each Upset,
Points Added: This method gives a standard bonus, as
specified by you, any time a lower seeded team defeats a
higher seeded team.
|Upsets Only Ė
Winnerís Seed x Point Value: If a lower seed defeats a
higher seed, then the winning teamís seed is multiplied by a
point value that you select.
|Upsets Only Ė
Difference in Seeds x Point Value: If a lower seeded team
defeats a higher seeded team, the difference between the seeds
of the two teams is multiplied by the point value that you
divided by the Loserís Seed x Point Value: For all games
picked correctly, the seed of the winning team is divided by
the seed of the losing team. That result is multiplied by the
seed factor and added to the points won for the game.
Advanced Bonus Scoring:
The bonus scoring feature of Tourney
Tracker gives you, the pool manager, the ultimate flexibility for
awarding points during your tournament. If the more straight-forward
methods of assigning a point value per game and round-by-round
seed-based bonuses are not sufficient for your pool traditions, the
advance bonus feature can usually fill the gap.
The advance bonus scoring system allows you to give extra points for
many different scenarios. Some examples are:
∑ Bonus points for picking the
final four teams in the tournament correctly.
∑ Bonus points for picking all of the correct teams in one section
of the bracket.
∑ Bonus points for picking all but one game in one section of the
∑ Bonus points for picking a seed higher than 10 to win a game in
the first round.
∑ Bonus points for picking a seed higher than 8 to make it to the
final four teams.
∑ Bonus points for picking all of the winners of the 8/9-seed
∑ Bonus points for picking the most winners in the first round
∑ Bonus points for picking most upsets by seeds 12 and above in
∑ Many, many, many more possibilitiesÖ
There are three types of automated
advanced bonuses that can be set up, as described below. Any
number of "bonus items" can be created for your pool. For each
bonus item created, you can choose exactly which games the bonus
will apply to, giving you the ultimate in flexibility.
Each-type - Bonus for each game
picked which fits criteria: With this type, you earn bonus
points for picking the correct team in each game defined in the
bonus that fits the defined criteria. For example, you can award 2
bonus points for correctly picking a team with a 12 seed or higher
to win a second round game.
All-type - All (or certain number of games) must be picked
correctly: With this type, in order to earn the bonus, the
entry must have the correct pick in all of the games defined in
the bonus. For example, you can award 10 bonus points for picking
all of the final four teams. Another option is to award the points
for getting a certain number of games correct out of those defined
in the bonus. For example, you can award 5 bonus points for
picking 3 out of 4 of the final four teams.
Most-type - Pick the most correct out of the selected games:
With this type, bonus points are awarded only to those entries
that pick the more correct games than any other entry for the
selected games. For instance, you can award 10 points to the entry
(or entries, if it is a tie) that has the most correct picks in
the first round of the tournament.
And, finally, if all of this
fails, you can set up a "Manual-type" of bonus. With
this type of bonus, you simply name the bonus something that will
make sense to your pool participants and assign a point value. After
defining this, you can go into the appropriate entries and assign
how many times that entry has earned that bonus.
