Middle-earth CCG official ranking system, by Chraig 'Ichabod' O'Brien, for I.C.E.
At the start of the tournament each player donates 10 ranking points to the
At the end of the tournament the points in the pool are distributed according to the table at the next sheet, based on each players final standing.
All final standings are important, so try to break all ties using the tie braking rules.
Dropouts do not get ranking points from the pool (as they do not achieve a final standing); this may cause some RP's to be lost (not redistributed).
The first time a player is ranked he / she starts with 500 points, plus 20%
of his / her points over 500 (if any) in the final ranking of the previous season.
Only points over 500 are taken into account, a player never starts a season at less than 500 points.
After the first ranking the changes in RP's are added to the players previous RP total.
Alex played in a 15 player tournament and ended up 2nd with 3 wins and one loss. His previous ranking is 521. His new ranking is: 521 + 3 - 1 - 10 + 24 = 537 (previous ranking + wins - losses -10 RP's for the pool + 24 RP's for 2nd place in a 15 player tournament (from the table) = 537)
Eve played in a 23 player tournament, she won twice and lost twice and ended up in 14th place. She has not been ranked yet this season. Last season her final ranking was 486. Her new ranking is: 500 + 2 - 2 - 10 + 10 = 500
Phil played in a 10 player tournament. He won the first round but lost the second and dropped out after that. His previous ranking is 495. His new ranking: 495 + 1 - 1 - 10 + 0 = 485
Note that Phil does not get a final standing and therefore no RP's from the pool, even though he might have more tournament points then the players ending in 8th and 9th place. Phil may have dropped out, but the tournament is still ranked as a ten player tournament
Olivia played in a 26 player tournament, she won three times, lost twice and ended up in 5th place. She has not yet been ranked this season. Her final ranking last season was 526. Her new ranking: 500 + 5 + 3 - 2 - 10 + 16 = 512

The Ichabodformula (used in 1999)
Every player starts with 150 Rankingpoints (RP). The winners Tournamentpoints (TP) (7,6,5,4,3,5) will be added with the winners RP and subtracted from the losers RP. Then they will be modified like this:
* for every 10 RP the winner has more than the loser, 1 point will be subtracted from the winners TP (at the end minimum of 1 TP).
* for every 10 RP the loser has less than the winner, 1 point will be added to the losers TP (maximum of 10).
This way, the winner will gain 1 through 10 Rankingpoints and the loser will lose 1 through 10 Rankingpoints. The RP will stay the same during the tournament!
