ManorCon Scoring System

Written by Super User. Posted in Scoring Systems

ManorCon uses a centers-squared based scoring system, which means that unless you solo, your score is related to the square of the number of centres that you own when the game ends. Unlike C-Diplo, which awards a large proportion of the points simply for finishing ahead of your competitors, the ManorCon system rewards players for increasing the distance between their centre count and everyone elses.

How the ManorCon scoring system works

  • If a player is eliminated, they score 0.10 points for every year they played, including the year they were eliminated.
  • If a player solos, they score 75 points, and every other player who is still alive at the end of the game, is scored as if they have been eliminated in the year of the solo.
  • If no player solos, then for every player (including the eliminated players), a value of P is calculated, where P = S2 + (4 x S) + 16, where S is the number of supply centres they owned at the end of the game.

The board score, B is the sum of the seven values of P for the seven players on the board.

Each non-eliminated players tournament score is 100 * P / B points.

Example from Manorcon XXVII Round 1 - Board 1

  Player Result S S2 4 x S + 16 P
Austria Dan 17 SC 17 289 68 16 373
England Tom 5 SC 5 25 20 16 61
France David 5 SC 5 25 20 16 61
Germany Emeric 2 SC 2 4 8 16 28
Italy Doug 2 SC 2 4 8 16 28
Russia Robin 3 SC 3 9 12 16 37
Turkey Adam Out 1903 0 0 0 16 16

 Giving a board score (B) of 373 + 61 + 61 +28 +28 +37 +16 = 604

 

Now we have the board score, we can use that to calculate each players points.

  Player Result P 100 x P Divided by the Board Score Points
Austria Dan 17 SC 373 37300 604 61.75
England Tom 5 SC 61 6100 604 10.1
France David 5 SC 61 6100 604 10.1
Germany Emeric 2 SC 28 2800 604 4.64
Italy Doug 2 SC 28 2800 604 4.64
Russia Robin 3 SC 37 3700 604 6.13
Turkey Adam Eliminated 1903 16 1600 604 0.3*

* As Turkey was Eliminated in 1903 Adam scored 0.10 points for every year he played and this included the year he was eliminated in.
