Reading through this thread, I had the impression that Troy's idea was liked most (at least it suited well with most), except that there is a weighing issue between the different categories. So, I took the liberty of modifying Troy's system (http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?high=&m=1398085&mpage=15#1550134
) by simply introducing a "
relative points" scheme. See if you like it: CCC - Categorized Chimp Challenge
All teams compete in 3 (or more categories). Suggestion:
- Total points
- Conversion percentage
- Chimp Challenge growth (percentage increase over last year's CC)
- Any other relevant, measurable factor teams value
At the end of the competition, each team places in all categories, and the team with the best overall performance is crowned "King of the Chimps" and receives this year's jaded monkey. Best overall performance is determined by the highest combined rank in the contest, taking into account their relative performance in each category. 4 Team Example:
Place Total Points (mil) Conversion (%) Growth (%)
1 Team A: 140 Team C: 90 Team B: 60
2 Team C: 110 Team D: 80 Team C: 40
3 Team D: 80 Team B: 70 Team A: 30
4 Team B: 70 Team A: 60 Team D: 20
Total: 400 300 150 Relative Standings: Divide by the "Total Row" above, then multiply by 100 (to find percentage in total)
Place Total Points Conversion Growth
1 Team A: 35.0 Team C: 30.0 Team B: 40.0
2 Team C: 27.5 Team D: 26.7 Team C: 26.7
3 Team D: 20.0 Team B: 23.3 Team A: 20.0
4 Team B: 17.5 Team A: 20.0 Team D: 13.3 Scoring:
Team A wins the Points.
Team C wins the Conversion.
Team B wins Growth. Final Score:
Team A's final score: 35 + 20 + 20 = 75.0
Team B's final score: 17.5 + 23.3 + 40 = 80.8
Team C's final score: 27.5 + 30 + 26.7 = 84.2
Team D's final score: 20 + 26.7 + 13.3 = 60.0
Team C wins the overall challenge. It is true that each category is weighed with the same weight of 1/3 (one third), however the performance of a team within each category is directly taken account. I suppose this is the main issue, and this modification takes care of that.
