FLORIDA MELEE POWER RANKINGS
Panelists: Apollo, Colbol, Hungrybox, Kniht/III/Pi, Linguini, Rockcrock, Zoro

Updated January 7 2012

After years of unofficial or non-existent rankings, a Panel representing the Florida Melee community has finally released the 2011 Florida Power Rankings. These rankings were not based on perceived skill but on consistent tournament performance which we believe is a validation of skill.


In the future we intend to update these rankings every four months. The periods will most likely be from January through April, May through August and September through December. The current ranking is based on all tournaments ran from September to December 2011.

Attending 3 tournaments will be necessary for consideration on future power rankings. Only participating in Doubles does not count towards eligibility.

In this list we only gave 10 spots since the panel felt there wasn't enough data to rank 5 additional players. It is the intention of the panel to include a total of 15 spots in future rankings. The large size of the state is the major reason for including extra positions.

- 2 tournaments minimum were required for eligibility on the panel and the PR's
- Panelists were nominated in a community survey
- Majority vote of the panel decided the final order








Measurement
Rankings are measured based on the following in order: Consistent tournament performance, ELO ratings, OOS performance and Who beats who.

Data was gathered from the following tournaments in the 6/11-12/11 period:
Don't Choke 2
ADVENT
ADVENT II
Flying Spaghetti Monster Returns
ADVENT III
ADVENT IV
Flying Spaghetti Monster 2 (unfortunately a bracket was never uploaded, only those of us who attended knew the complete results)

Methodology can be found here as well as tournament data: 2011 FL PR

Yep it's all good now. Thanks Zoro! I think it was something with the image hosting site. (I kinda looked into it)

Also, Rankings look pretty spot on. Good job panelists.

III's an honorable mention and apollo isn't?
******* ******** ********** ******* **** ******** ***********.

Top 10 looks very accurate though, gj to Louis for being a boss for so many years-- DF would be proud.

Apollo didnt beat any of the top 10 those on HM did.

how does apollo not get at least an honorable mention?

I just told you why

We are going off performance at the 7 bigger tourneys.
Apollo barely missed the rankings this time. If Skrach wasn't on it (since I didn't think he fit the qualifications) I would have put Apollo on HM.

Here is the new ELO
im thinking that we should still do tri annual updates but the 3 tournaments needed can be done in a six month basis. With only one monthly in the state its hard to make 3/4 of the advents. I was thinking we'd still have SFL tourneys but if they aren't coming we'll need to use data from further back.

Also I'm not going to do ELO decay until I feel it's necessary.

The new panel im not really going to ask for nominations. Whoever wants to do it with me can. The top players are too apathetic to conduct a panel, not really their fault if they aren't interested in it.

Rankings are definitely good for the community so anyone who wants to be in the panel let me know. You don't have to be amazing but you have to know all the players, follow tournaments and genuinely care about the process.

I'd be down to be a Panelist for the our region, I just need to learn more about the players and their skills besides the obviously good players. <__< Any who. I want to host a tournament @ Zero-Ping on the 25th of this month, so we can get this new ELO system moving. I know some of you kids are salty from Advent. lol Come seek revenge at the next Don't Choke! =D
