We have been listening to the many complaints regarding Unplayed Matches in EDS. To address this issue; a change in the points calculation system will be implemented starting this Period;|
At the Period end, all Players who played 6+ Matches will get 1 Point for every unplayed match. This applies to all divisions except Division Z.
These points will also earn 5 YEPs Bonus.
Player A played 7 Matches (5 wins and 2 losses) = 5x3 + 2x1 = 17 points
Will get 2 more Points for Unplayed Matches, Total Points = 19 Points.
Player B played 8 Matches (5 wins and 3 losses) = 5x3 + 3x1 = 18 points
Will get 1 more Point for Unplayed Matches, Total Points = 19 Points.
Player C played 6 Matches (4 wins and 2 losses) = 4x3 + 2x1 = 14 points
Will get 3 more Points for Unplayed Matches, Total Points = 17 Points.
Player D played 5 Matches (5 wins and 0 losses) = 5x3 + 0x1 = 15 points
Will get NO more Points for Unplayed Matches, Total Points = 15 Points.
We believe this is the fairest solution to the no-show problem, and that it will eliminate the need for innocent false reporting. It will not be necessary to notify the DPA; this adjustment will be done automatically at the close of the period.
We realize and expect that we will still have some unhappy players for one reason or another, but we can never satisfy everyone. Any “solution” that involves the actual awarding of wins (i.e. the “choosing” of one player over the other) is unmanageable from an administrative perspective.
