This year we have added some new columns to the statistics tables. They are not used in any tiebreakers this year, but we are considering using them in future tournament years. This year we will be tracking these new statistics to get a feel for how they can help better balance our ranking system in the future.
A short overview of what they are:
(1) VP = Vote Points
VP is calculated by taking a Contestant’s VF and dividing by the average votes received for the entire round in all 38 arenas. For Aquamarine 1, the average is 3621 votes.
(2) SVDO = Sum of VP of all Defeated Opponents
(3) SVAO = Sum of VP of All Opponents
This is similar to SDO and SAO. Add up the VP total of defeated opponents and all opponents.
(4) SWVO = Sum of Weighted VP of All Opponents
Weighted VP in each round is calculated by multiplying the Contestant’s VP in that particular round with her opponent’s total VP to date. This means that a round’s Weighted VP will change as the tournament progresses, because the opponents’ total VP will change. The weighted VPs are all summed together. So this is an evolving metric as more rounds take place.
