EXAMPLE
4th place out of 5 players: regular game
2nd place out of 3 players: regular game, awarded shot of the day
1st place out of 3 players: minor game
1st place out of 2 players: minor game

MAIN POINTS EARNED:
Each game gets the following rating system:
 players 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1st 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 2nd 00.0 50.0 66.6 75.0 80.0 83.3 86.0 3rd 00.0 33.3 50.0 60.0 66.6 71.0 4th 00.0 25.0 40.0 50.0 57.0 5th 00.0 20.0 33.3 43.0 6th 00.0 16.6 29.0 7th 00.0 14.0 8th 00.0 The mathematical formula for this would be: 100 / (x - 1)) * (x - y), 0) x= number of players y= place in game (i.e. if you finished 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, etc)

EXAMPLE
So the Mauler earned the following raw points for these four games:
25.0 points:
4th place out of 5 players: regular game
50.0 points: 2nd place out of 3 players: regular game, awarded shot of the day
100.0 points: 1st place out of 3 players: minor game
100.0 points: 1st place out of 2 players: minor game

BUT we've got a bunch more stuff to figure in...

SHOT OF THE DAY
The shot of the day earns 20 points for every game played that day.
So in our example where the Mauler got the shot of the day in the 2nd game, he would be awarded 80 points (20 * 4 games)

(the old method was to give away 100 points no matter how many games were played. That was a bit unfair if only 2 games where played vs. another day where 8 games were played.)

TYPE OF GAME
Grand Slam: 200%
Regular: 100%
Minor: 25%

Grand Slam: One of four major events held by the Squirearchy. An approximate majority of the players must be present
Regular: A regular scheduled Squirearchy game. An approximate majority of the players must be present.
Minor: A game where it's just a few of the Squirearchy members played. Or a non-scheduled game.

EXAMPLE
So in our example for one day, there are are 2 regular games, and 2 minor games.
The Mauler earns a total of 155 points in the regular games and 200 points in the minor games.
155 regular points * 100% = 155 points
2 regular games * 100% = 2 games

200 minor points * 25% = 50 minor points
2 minor games * 25% = 0.50 minor games

205 points, 2.50 games

And divide 'em to get the day's average:
82 point average

AGING FACTOR
An aging factor is figured in as well.
0 months old = 100.%
1 month old = 91.7%
2 month old = 83.3%
3 month old = 75.0%
4 month old = 66.7%
5 month old = 58.3%
6 month old = 50.0%
7 month old = 41.7%
8 month old = 33.3%
9 month old = 25.0%
10 month old = 17.7%
11 month old = 08.3%
12 month old = 00.0%
The formula for this is:
x * (12-y) / 12)
x = points
y= months difference

EXAMPLE
So let's say today is 12/1/2001. The Mauler got 205 points with 2.50 games on 6/1/2001.
That would make it 6 months ago. So you multiply the points earned in that game (205 points earned) by 50% giving you 102.5 aged points. But then you also multiply those 2.50 games by 50%, so they count as 1.25 aged games. Make sure the game is given the same percentage treatment, so that way the average still comes out the same. It just isn't as heavy in the career average.
