Why am I being asked that?

I've seen IWL point totals listed on some of the results beng provided on this site, and wondering what is up with those.

The bloody Jocks seem to dominate :-)

The IWL is a fun league Lorenzo organised - basically you should have a local coordinator who manages and reports the results. I'm not 100% certain of the current process but IIRC you score points based on position and size of tournament, and only the best 3 results count. At the end of the year Lorenzo announces the winner. He is usually Scottish

I want to learn the process Lorenzo is using.

As we develop a "league" of Impetus players around here, I was beginning to contemplate how to create a rankings system for purposes of pairings and such.  Not that this is actually going to happen, just a idea being considered at this point.

Then I saw the references to the IWL, and wanted to learn what this is about.

There is usually a link on the DadiePiombo site Impetus page but the page is down for hamster feeding. When it comes back up I'm sure the details are there.

Basically you get points for positions - first place down to wherever - the number of points for each place is based on the number of players in the tournament so a 12 player tournament can generate 20 for first place, 15 second etc but a 8 player tournament will only grant 15 points for first place. (I could be making this up but you will get the gist). The best three points scores go towards your total at the end of the year, so the maximum you can score is 60 points. Lorenzo awards prizes for first place in the IWL and usually for other qualifiers so best UK, US or whatever

Hope that helps

hi ken

i was always a wee bit confused with the IWL points, but it is 20 for first 15 for second and 10 for third then it gets confusing (for me at least) last gets 1 point and the rest in between get some points on a sliding scale dependent upon the numbers of players.

and alas us "sweaty socks" (jocks) are dying off. i have only managed one game this year!!!

i had the idea for a local league thing as well, but there were no takers. i thought get 8  to 12 players and play a league over a few months, final standings after so many games would be your "normal" competition IWL points.
