Hello there,

This is the second time I (finished in 2nd place) am getting more points then my competitor who just won the game.

(in screen ignore that the one who won is Finky, he won by cv-push-by-train-buying)

Just wondered...

What is the formula to award to points? Just something like winner getting 100+(difference from last spot)? And other players getting their amount of goal% in relation to the time the winner needed?

Points = goal% / (played time/winners time)

Hi,

Yes it's exactly this formula.

But i'm going to limit the game to 100pt.

Points = (playerGoal%/winnerGoal%)*100 / (playerTime / winnerTime)

Hello Ed,

thx for your answer!

Just to clarify: As I understand the formula, only the winners points are limited to 100. When a player is astoundingly fast with his goal% then he may get a lot more than 100points when he finishes in 2nd place.

But on the other side: I like that a lot: awarding points for growth (goal% per time) is a lot better than awarding points just for goal% places.

Thx Ed, I like your new formula!

I had a other thing with the points:

I started 5 years later, and won at the end with a close call.

2nd place had 98% but only awarded with 52 points.

how?

The second player only had 52pt, because he used around twice the time you used to reach 98% of the goal.
