So I am interested how does the new scoring system work? What is the basis and purpose for the "magical multiplier" applied to the final score, as it varies for each player but does not affect the final position?

It means you now get a proportion of 1000 points no matter how many people play. If two people play in the league they would get 1000 and 500 points respectively, 4 people would be 1000, 750, 5500, 250. It takes away the element of luck of placing highly at an unusually well attended evening. Downside is you can get the same reward of 1000 points for beating 40 players or 20 players.

Ok, that makes sense! Out of interest, is this a Flipout system, or IFPA imposed on all comps?

Ben - Just a flipout system. Time will tell if it catches on anywhere else.

Neil - Every system has it's pros and cons - We avoided a simple countdown, as this would either move the same volatility to the other end of the table (if the top score his high enough that every player scores), or create loads of ties for bottom place (if the countdown reaches zero before the last player). Hopefully this system will give a better measure of players' performance throughout the standings.

Lets see how this works, and if it doesn't, we'll change it again (and add another zero to the end).
