### Baseball scoring system the third and hopefully the last :)

Posted:

**Sun Aug 18, 2002 9:16 am**Well, a tie in the second poll forces me to run it again. Please read the following, give it a thought, and then vote.

Poll to find game length and debate about several suggested scoring system:

viewtopic.php?t=9246

First poll to find a scoring system with 3 suggestions:

viewtopic.php?t=9360

Second try to find a new scoring system for Baseball games:

viewtopic.php?t=9434

Here's a reminder of the two scoring systems left in the Poll:

----------

Scoring System No.1 by Roncli:

100 for a win, 50 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. If you win, add the point difference to the score.

Player 5, Computer 5 - 50 points for a draw.

Player 40, Computer 0 - 100 points for a win plus 40 points difference, 140 total.

Player 0, Computer 40 - 0 points for a loss.

Player 40, Computer 20 - 120 points for a win plus 20 points difference, 120 total.

----------

Scoring System No.3 by Matt Denham:

Formula: 1000 * (player's score + 1) * (player's score - computer's score) / (loser's score + 1)

Examples:

Player 8, Computer 3: 1000 * (8+1) * (8-3) / (3+1) = 11,250

Player 6, Computer 0: 1000 * (6+1) * (6-0) / (0+1) = 42,000

Player 11, Computer 1: 1000 * (11+1) * (11-1) / (1+1) = 60,000

Player 4, Computer 14: 1000 * (4+1) * (4-14) / (4+1) = -10,000

Player 5, Computer 6: 1000 * (5+1) * (5-6) / (5+1) = -1000

Player 0, Computer 1: 1000 * (0+1) * (0-1) / (0+1) = -1000

Pros: Ties are almost impossible, and, for the most part, final scores are relatively logical (shutouts are worth the most of any game where you score a certain number of runs, and games are worth more the more runs you score).

Cons: Games where the player loses are worth negative amounts of points (and losses by N runs are worth simply N*(-1000)).

----------

This poll will run for 14 days to give everyone a chance to vote.

Happy voting
