 There will be a new scoring method for during regular season:
All constestants start with 100 points.
Every time a contestant defeat another contestant, the winner will steal a percentage of the loser's points.
This scoring method will determine who will enter postseason. It does not determine necklace eligibility, which remains unchanged.
There are currently 2 models that the staff feels works best:
Model 1: The steal percentage starts at 1% in Aquamarine 1 and ends at 35% in Topaz 7, with an increment of 1% each match.
Model 2: The steal percentage is 15% for all of Aquamarine, 20% for Amethyst, ... , 35% for Topaz, which is a constant percentage throughout each period.  The Necklace Formula will no longer use SDO, but rather PSAO.
PSAO is defined as Partial Score of All Opponents, and is calculated by (Pts/21)*SAO.
The formula will be PSAO/3 + NGP%, with NGP% being Necklace Group Percentage.  The Male Division's jewelry will be the Pendant, and there will be 5 Pendants that are equivalent to Necklaces.
We will keep the Scepter as the grand final winner jewelry, equivalent to the Tiara.
All rules and regulations from the Necklace match will be copied over to the Pedant match.
ISML Graphics Staff Members A & M will be responsible for creating these posters.  Postseason 1 tiebreakers will now have Head to Head. The order of tiebreakers are:
a. Most wins during Phase I
b. Most wins against Contestants with the same number or greater number of wins within Phase I
c. Headtohead win minus Headtohead loss among those tied after above condition
d. Regular Season ranking using points.
e. PSAO  CAPTCHA will now tell you whether your answer is wrong.
Simply put, you will no longer worry if your ballot is counted. If the answer is wrong, you can try again.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
PSAO was adopted in order to make the necklace match more competitive for characters with one or two loss.
A good example is 2014 Emerald Period. Below table shows how PSAO value would have been for 2014 Emerald Period Necklace Match contestants. Now the gap between characters, overall, is much smaller.
Name : Pts : SAO : PSAO : SDO : NEW Percentage gap (%) : 2014 formula's gap (%)
Yūki Asuna : 21 : 90.679 : 90.679 : 90.679 : 0 : 0

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
Maybe I should have read this before replying to the structural change thread, although I didn't really say much.
Point 3 and 4 seem fairly straight forward.
Point 1 sounds cool, although it does seem like it is giving a lot more 'value' to later wins than earlier wins (regardless of model). Maybe this is to encourage voters to remain voting throughout RS? Model 2 'sounds' fairer, given that say the biggest difference in steal percentage is 20%, while with Model 1 it is 34% (28% between Topaz R7 and Aqua R7). It's also probably fairer to whoever ends up being the wildcard character. Can't say I have a huge grasp of it, so I'll just have to see how it plays out.
Edit: I just got how it doesn't afect necklace eligibility.
As for Point 2, can't really say much about it. It didn't affect things much in Emerald 2014, but if its usage would've meant Kuroyukihime would've lost the Ruby necklace, well, that would be a shame for future necklaces. The characters that gained the most were those that lost 1 match compared to the lossless characters. Just dunno if that is a good thing personally.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
Could you please explain how to steal pts from the loser?
If A and B has 100 pts and A beats B with 60004000, how will the pts changes?
I'm just wondering why it's only 1% for AQ1 and 35% for T7...Does it mean that T7 is 35 times more important than AQ1?

Model 2 sounds fairer to me. As for point 2, Azusa may now have a chance. Next year looks like the beginning of the third era.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
Higher % in aq, lower % in topaz,
So, result in aq still affect a little.
As the fact is if we use constant %, the weighting of topaz still much large.
so, I suggest aq 35% > topaz 15%
If someone performs better in topaz, she can still get into PS1, even using the reversed model 2.
Also, if someone was sniped all way though the Topaz period, she can still get into PS1 as 15% is not that much.
Isn't this better?
Btw, if we don't have flat bonus, why do we change the SDO system? It's meaningless...
EDIT:
I dry run the 2014 score,
why don't you use constant=0.25 though out the Regular Season?
I think this is better and affected less by the match. Also

Sorry, reverse model 2 is not much difference from this year's ranking, so I drop it and choose constant though out the season...Homura wrote:Reverse model 2 sounds good to me, or try to put the peak percentage in ruby.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
So there seems to be a bit of misunderstanding here. Model 1 does not make Topaz 5 35 times more important than Aquamarine 1, but rather somewhat equivalent. Any change in Aquamarine 1 will propagate throughout the entire tournament. Think of it as compound interest. I can charge you 35% interest up front, or 1% compounded 35 times, which ends up at a higher value. Because of that, Aquamarine percentages has to stay small or else an "upset" win in Aquamarine 7 can be blown out of proportions and never normalize.
While constant seems like a good idea at a glance, the sliding scale from 1% to 35% is mathematically most fair. By choosing Model 2, you are accepting the fact that Aquamarine matches are more important than Topaz matches. This is why the idea is rejected. In Model 2, an upset in Aquamarine 7 match is very likely to be much more important than an upset in Topaz 7, because it will eventually affect all contestants, whereas an upset in Topaz 7 is just one event.

@matchbaby: You are completely missing the point. We adopt this system to ENCOURAGE sniping and chaos, which will be normalized by the Swiss system in Postseason 1. We're not looking for a compromise. We're looking for full blown chaos.
A tall, towering wall looms in front of me. Beyond that is something that I could never to see on my own.
And that is...the view from the top.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
ok, after discussing with KS in chatroom, I support model 1.
That's end of my concern

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
Does full blown chaos mean massive miracle here? and what if some "wrong" contestants make into PS1 before we even get a chance to normalize (then many voters get mad) ?Kholdy wrote:@matchbaby: You are completely missing the point.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
Fine, this sounds good to me now. I'm just a bit worried that we may get more than 5 unqualified postseasoners.matchbaby wrote:That's what we wantHomura wrote:Does full blown chaos mean massive miracle here? and what if some "wrong" contestants make into PS1 before we even get a chance to normalize (then many voters get mad) ?Kholdy wrote:@matchbaby: You are completely missing the point.

Re: ISML 2015  Operational Changes
btw, someone concern about the "compound interest", it is not fair.
As this is not linear, if you really want to make the point system weigh better, use the exponential curve.
Can you explain this clearly?

Illya would have gotten into PS? Totally in support of either change.
