My formula for whose the greatest of the Kongs.
« on: April 25, 2018, 06:37:24 am »
I decided to finally use my math formula on whose the greatest of the Kong games.  Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, Donkey Kong 3, and Crazy Kong.  My formula is simple.  It's total number of submission for a game divided by the ranking of that particular player.  So for instance, since there are 437 submissions for Donkey Kong, Robbie Lakeman gets 437 points.  McCurdy gets 218.5 points because 437 divided by two equals 218.5.
So here are the 20 best players.  And yes Barra you'd be ahead of me if you beat my Donkey Kong 3 score.  Kappa

1. Robbie Lakeman-663.4 points
2. John McCurdy-292.2 points
3. George Riley- 229.2 points
4. Wes Copeland-223.1 points
5. Mark Kiehl-210.9 points
6. Phil Tudose-139.6 points
7. Andrew Barrow- 122 points
8. Dean Saglio-109.3 points
9. Ben Falls-96.7 points
10. Dwayne Richard- 96.1 points
11. Jason Wade- 87.4 points
12. Jeff Wolfe-86.5 points
13. Mike Kasper-81.2 points
14. Hank Chien-72.9 points
15. Corey Chambers-72 points
16. Estel Goffinet-54.5 points
17. George Strain- 54.1 points
18. Ross Benzinger-52.8 points
19. Chris Psaros-52.6 points
20. Steve Wagner-49.3 points m

The most egregious error in this is that it is not in the List Forum

I like the idea but the formula is too top heavy. You could be top of Jr, DK3 and CK and still be below whoever the DK record holder is even if they haven't submitted on any of the other three.

A better formula maybe would be if each score was normalized, by dividing your score on the best score (getting a number from 0-1 on each game) and adding these four numbers.

The problem with your formula Vicente is I dominate Donkey Kong 3 to the point where your formula gives me an unfair advantage.

How is that unfair? ;)

Normalize over the rankings then. To score a player, take his/her rank divided by total number of submissions - giving a number between 0 and 1 - and then add these four numbers. Then the dominant players don't get an unfair advantage, and it also doesn't give an unfair advantage to have a high score in a game with lots of submissions.

Because Donkey Kong 3 doesn't have a killscreen.  The other three do.  If Donkey Kong 3 had a killscreen, it would work.

Since there is no hard stop to the game, there is no theoretical limit on points as well.
