prestige boosting

Post by -Nintendo- » 15 February 2019, 20:15

how it can be tournament of keyflower on 2 players and 4500 of prestige, where one of the players has elo 2, it is just boosting of prestige points i think, watch on this https://en.boardgamearena.com/#!tournament?id=26912
so why it is possible at all starting tournaments with 2 people. They can just play a game out of tournament. This is ridiculous. I saw it's not first tournament like this, with same 2 players: Hakan and berat :| :| :roll:

Is there a formula available how many prestige points will be awarded per tournament?
I find it very broken. For example, now I saw one tournament with two players for 6050 points, while the same type of tournament in another game with 4 players (including 3 of the top 20) for 217 points.
Is there any limit what you can get from the same game tournaments?

there are significant issues with prestige from tournaments and it's been around for years and unfortunately doesn't seem to be a priority :-( (I hope they fix it retroactively when they finally get around to it).

No formula has been published but I've managed to figure a bit out:

Each game has a base value which is based on how long a game takes (longer games are worth more prestige, difficulty could also be a factor here, not exactly sure).

Each player contributes a certain amount to a tournament based on the player's Elo range (average/good/strong/expert/master) and the prestige roughly quadruples for each rank they advance. So a 701 rated player provides four times the prestige of a 699 rated player.

The prestige is multiplied by number of rounds scheduled for the tournaments...so a Swiss scheduled for 20 rounds would be double the prestige of a 10 round Swiss or 4 times the prestige of a 32 player single elimination (5 rounds). This is whether or not the tournament actually takes that many rounds...thus a 2 player Swiss tournament will only take 1 round but provides 20x the prestige because it was scheduled for 20 rounds.
