I will take the TPA major on Sept 28th for a running of A Risktaker's Race: The WC4J Board Game. Where the CC maps are the spaces on the board. No maximum number of players.

I also have an assassin tournament ready to go for the premier if no one else takes that.

I don't get the scoring thing. I assume it's meant to put get the scoring back on a 32/64/128 player basis for bigger tournaments, but it just makes the bigger tournaments give 32/64/128 times less points (except for the winners). Shouldn't it be divided by 32/64/128 but multiplied by the number of players?

That seems to be what it does. Note the “n” in the formula.

The scoring system would benefit from some improvement though. If a tournament had over 256 players You would get more points for second than first.
Perhaps unlikely, but there are other issues that creates too.

This is the same scoring formula that has been used in previous editions. I am up for a change, but that would have to happen before the 7th of this month. Any suggestions?

I didn't notice the fact you multiply by n, the formula is fine. I have to agree with scud that not adjusting the score of the winner as well can cause issues though.

Many thanks to all involved in bringing this back! I know it's a lot of work -- I think somewhere sempai is still wrapping up TPA4. I don't know if I'll make it through, life's busier these days - but it's a great thing for the site and for more players to experience!

For this edition yes. We don´t have as many tournaments as we used to. If we see that the TPA7 runs smoothly and there is enough interest we might expand the number of tourneys next year and then we will go back to the old format where maybe not all the standards and possible premiums count.
