DashFight Rankings Methodology (Beta)
This is the beta version of DF Rankings, and It is important to say that this is our first attempt at ranking players. So, we’re going to improve our rankings, considering the data needed for more accurate estimation.
Our Rankings are ordered by years and regions. So far, we’ve calculated rankings for 2021 and 2022. There is no global leaderboard for all years.
What are DF points?
DF points define a player’s place in our ranking. We give points based on two things:
- Tournament Tiers, defined by many factors.
- Players’ Placements in the given tournaments during the year.
To assign tournament tiers, we took into account tournament formats, local/regional/global status, number of participants, prestige and more. We have consulted with pro players and revised according to their feedback. So, DashFight’s tier list for tournaments goes like this:
- Tier 1 — Global
- Tier 1 — Regional
- Tier 1 — National
- Tier 2 — Global
- Tier 2 — Regional
- Tier 2 — National
- Local / Community
The players are then awarded points based on their tournament placements, adjusted to the tier. We looked at the traditional sports approach to points distribution and used it as an example. You can see the result in the table:
|1st place||2nd place||3rd place||4th place||5-6 place||7-8 place||9-16 place||16-32 place||32-64 place||64-128 place|
|Tier 1. Global||2000||1300||780||600||430||340||240||130||70||10|
|Tier 1. Regional||1500||974||583||448||320||254||179||97||52||7|
|Tier 1. National||1000||649||389||299||214||170||120||56||35||5|
|Tier 2. Global||600||390||234||180||129||102||72||39||21||3|
|Tier 2. Regional||500||325||195||150||107||85||60||32||17||2|
|Tier 2. National||400||260||156||120||86||68||48||26||14||2|
|Local / Community||200||130||78||60||43||34||24||13||7||1|
For example, 240 points for places 9-16 in Tier 1 — Global means that each participant in this range earns 240 DF points.
How often are DF rankings updated?
DF rankings will be recalculated each time a new tournament from the given year is added to our platform.
