the Bonus Round was handled differently than a normal round. It is not a good representative example of scoring in the MVL.
Here is a breakdown of how scoring works:
There are 8 possible Individual Bonus Points. 4 are given out to the four highest scores, and 4 are given out to the four fastest games. In case of ties, score games are broken by speed, and speed is broken by score. If score and speed are the same, both players will earn the Bonus Point.
There are three categories that a Team can earn bonus points in:
The Team with the Highest Average Score (all scores added together and divided by players on a team) earns 2pts, the team with the next highest average earns 1pt.
The Team with the Lowest Average Speed (all game years added together and divided by players on a team) gets 2pts, next highest team average earns 1pt.
Finally, Team Submission Time is based on the Average of Rank Order of Submissions. The First Person to submit a game to the MVL Thread is considered "1", the next "2", and so on in numerical order. Once all submissions have been entered for a round, each person's submission rank is added together and then divided by number of players on the team. So: Team A had submission ranks of 3, 7, 8, 10, and 12 (the 3rd, 7th, 8th, 10th, and 12th submitted games to the MVL respectively) their average Submission Rank would be 8 (40/5)
The Team with the Lowest Submission Rank Average earns 2pts, the team with the next lowest average earns 1pt.
Does that help?
