Aquamarine 1 Statistics are now properly updated. ISML 2012 introduces partial points, which are awarded to losing Contestants in each match. VF/VA points are awarded, meaning that losing by 1 vote will earn 0.999 points. Losing by 1000 votes will earn much less.
We have removed the SoS column and the PB column from the ranking tables. The SoS column is redundant, because it has the same value as the Points column. Points are still alternatively referred to as a Contestant’s Strength of Schedule (SoS). Our SDO and SAO tiebreakers continue to be based on Points, which are changing a little bit this year with the partial points system. The PB column just took up space, as it simply was a subtraction operation to show how many points a Contestant was behind the leader.
The ranking table might appear to be flipped from the previous version (which was calculated using 2011 rules), but this is just the case during the first round of a Period. As more round results are factored in, the rankings will better represent which girls will make it to the Necklace Round .. and eventually the Postseason.
Thanks for your patience! Round 2 begins soon…
