Yep that is how they will work.

cnshockey 7-3 (70%)
BGDDYKWL 7-3 (70%)
Ensane and colonel_korn (63%)
Cyris 6-4 (60%)
VLoo 6-4 (60%)
Bennyflyers16 6-4 (60%)
mark9 6-2-2
alexthekidd (57%)
northstarsforever (56%)
AndyPipkin 5-5 (50%)
The Big Swede 5-5 (50%)
northstarsforever 5-4-1
Ensane 5-3-2
colonel_korn 5-3-2
alexthekidd 4-3-2
DaaaaaB's (43%)
Nalyd Psycho 4-6 (40%)

Chairman Mallard 3-5-2 (38%)
Avs_19 3-5-2 (38%)
DaaaaaB’s 3-4-3
Jasper 2-5-3 (29%)
Jonathan. 2-5-3 (29%)
DeathFromAbove 1-7-2 (13%)
(Put the person with the most picks below since we didn't have an exact tiebreaker)

Well I have these in my spreadsheet so if you guys like the records/win % model then I'm good to go.

Nice work. I'm ranked much higher with that system so I'm good with it.

I dont mind it, I like the -1 for any fight the most but the win loss is better than the original format.

looking at your standings are you counting non picked fights as losses for the winning%?

The percentage should just be wins/losses, with draws left out.

Oh yeah duh. I'll fix it. If we go with this system we're going to need tiebreakers though. OK I think I fixed it.

Not so sure it's needed. I'm easy, though. EDIT - I updated the votes in my post on Page 2. Please comment if your opinion hasn't been accounted for.

Also, if someone submits no picks for an entire event, I think they should not be counted at all, rather than counting them all as ties. People are away and miss things now and then.

Ties only come into play when they pick some fights from an event, but not all.

you can make my vote weighted points but I like winning% more than the original.
