  • Would you please tell us ???

    Hello - I would like either a moderator or a super - moderator to tell me/us at what levels in the PSO league handicaps come in please ? I have read on the forums that the 1st handicap comes in at 1660 pts and you have to make the top 28.5% to get positive points.
    But after that the only stats i have are that if you have 1800pts you need to place in the top 23.5% of the field and then i think the final cap is if you are above 1870pts you need to place in the top 22.5% to achieve positive points.
    Now i don't know if these stats are correct and rather than getting re-directed to the scoring section for an impossible mathematical calculation could somebody give me a breakdown of what the Handicaps are ? When they come into effect ? What effect do they have at each stage ? And when they stop ?
    I think that this would benefit not just myself but everyone who plays in the PSO League so we can have a clear and concise idea of what we need to do to get points and how each stage affects us depending on our position in the league.
    I don't know if the Americans not being able to play have affected anything to do with the scores and would just like a clear breakdown of the scores if at all possible.
    Jeez that was hard work - Cheers Mods.

          There may be a post around here somewhere that breaks things down statstically, but I'm not 100% sure.

          I know there's another sticky started by Thanat0s that includes an excel file that will tell you what your score is when you put in the necessary info. Give that one a try.

            My simple formula is:-

            1470-1570 top 40% for positive points
            1570-1670 35%
            1670-1770 29%
            1770-1790 26%
            1790-1830 26%
            1830-1870 24%
            1870+ 22%

            Rough but usable

                This was close to the old set of numbers to hit the Zero Point Margin, now, the 0 pt margin, should still be close to the same, although we have new evidence that there are throttles at different numbers, I use these just as a base, it gives you a general idea, and really that's all I'm looking for. Until I get to the point where I am breaking 1750, I'll use these numbers, after that ,I'll use Thanatos' Excel file to find out where I need to be to get what, and btw I have to say, when you are finished downloading and fixing the links, Than's program runs very, very close to the real thing, only been out a few times, and only off by up to 1 point, pretty accurate if you ask me.
