[Q&A]

[/Q&A]How do you know how many points a game is worth when setting it up?
I know the higher the number of players but more the point value. But it there a way to tell how many points a game is worth?

At the end of each game, the winner takes points away from each loser. The points to be awarded is calculated as (loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points from each opponent.

But is there a formula or is it just random point loss/gain.

This is the Formula

Points = (Loser/Winner) * 20

So lets say it's a loser with 1400 and a winner has a 1300 score

Points = (1400/1300) * 20

1400/1300 = 1.0769230.....
Multiply that by 20 and get the answer of 21.53846153846.....
Not sure how they round, but Id say standard rounding rules, so Winner goes up 22, loser goes down 22

just note, this is ONLY calculated at the END of the game(witht he points at that precive moment), so upfront you dont really know how much you are losing or winning from a game

Would give my left something if someone would make a extension or add on to show projected win/lose

not that hard to do.... at a certain point. problem would also be that your rank can vary over time, so for a freestyle spped game you can reliably calculate it (more or less) but for a Battle Royal standerd, well that could take a while

Well, like, imagine a button like in PM teammates.
You hit that, and it pops up with that specific game, if you won or lost at that exact moment.

This requires not very much coding at all! It would be easier if it was just added on to an existing tool like BOB, it wouldn't make much sense to make a whole new add-on just for this informational feature

I hear that alot, but it seems so simple you think someone wouldve done it by now.
Add it to bob, or do it however. I just want it
