Our system offers 4 different types of scoring. This allows you to scale with the size of your competitions. The document below provides an example of all 4 models.
Scoring can be based on:
Point per Place (Lowest Points Wins, like the Open)
Placement points are based on your rank, 1st = 1 point, 2nd = 2 points, 3rd = 3 points, etc.
- Placement Points
- Placement Points with Weighting
Point Based (Highest Points Wins, like the Games)
Point index are based on a sliding point system where each workout has a potential of 100 points. 1st = 100 points, 2nd = 95 points, 3rd = 90 points.
Point index is great for competitions that have 65 or less athletes per division.
If 65 positions does not suit you, you can upload your own custom point system.
If a tie occurs, athletes will share the same placement, and the next athlete will take the next placement, i.e. John and Jack are tied 2nd place, the next athlete will take 4th place
If a tiebreaker makes sense to program into a workout, this can add an additional layer of segregation between a placement.

Withdraws (WD), Did Not Finish (DNF), Time Cap (CAP)
A WD is used when a competitor can no longer continue. This will notate them as WD on the leaderboard and remove them out of contention to being ranked.
A DNF is used if a competitor does not finish a workout. This will notate them as DNF and give them a score of 0. They remain in contention to be ranked but this will drastically hurt their overall score. Please note this is completely different than a competitor being time capped.
A CAP is used when a competitor does not finish within the set time limit. This will notate them as CAP on the leaderboard and rank them below anyone that finishes the workout, and rank them amongst anyone else that were time capped based on their completed reps. This option is only available for timed workouts and must be turned on in the workout editor.
Define the rules of your game and determine which path works best for your event.
