Scoring Points calculation?

Hello

I would like to know how the scoring points for each match are calculated.
I would like to be able to calculate them myself rather than waiting for the chart to come out.
I assume its based on each players entry ranking.
could anyone tell me please? I will check this tomorrow thank you

Only Managers have the right to know this formula and are not allowed to distribute this formula to any one else. I'n not being picky but we don't want other games mirroring the same formula.

Zauber, do you really need that calculation??

You can somehow guess how many points you get
If you know for example a player ranked 25 is worth 12/13 points against a Top15 player you can guess that a 35 player is worth about 14/15 points

Hello

Yes I would like to know. I like calculating things out it would be fun. But also it helps playing the game to plan your picks ahead of time. Also the scoring points are not always available. I dont mean this as a critizics at all.
Running a game is a lot of work. I really appreciate that the managers are running the game. Thank you.
However having a rough formular to calculate the scoring points would add enjoyment to the game for me. It does not have to be your formular. As long as the formular gives me the scoring points for each match fairly closely.

P.s. I probably should not say this. I dont buy the reason given for not letting me have the formular. I think its more an elitist reason. Like being in the in crowd.

oh well thanks anyways
