Explanation of H3H

Well, basically, this H3H is going to be run as essentially a test format. We'll change it up and see what works best, and our first test format will be all v all. Each week, every user will be in one battle, and if there's say, 15 users, will be ranked 1-15 for that week and given points accordingly, much in the same way as Formula 1 racing. After how ever many weeks, the person with the most points will be awarded a special prize!

As we don't know the exact amount of competitors yet, the scoring algorithm has not yet been decided, but with 15 users it will look something like this.

1st: 15 points
2nd: 12 points
3rd: 10 points
4th: 8 points
5th: 7 points
6th: 5 points
7th: 4 points
8th: 3 points
9th: 2 points
10th: 1 point
11-14th: 0 points
15th: 0 points + eternal shame.

If there is a draw (Say 1st and 2nd get the same amount of clicks), the reward points will be added then divided by the amount of competitors. In this scenario, a draw for first and second will result in the points for first (15) plus the points for second (12) divided by two, (so 13.5) given to each competitor. If three people draw, the same thing will happen but with three positions and divided by three competitors ((15+12+10)/3=12.333 points per competitor). However, as this is very unlikely, we probably don't need to worry about it.

We'll be with you again later today for an actual stats update! Imagine that!
