Nah, not yet. This is the behind the scenes look ONLY FOR TILT FORUMS
We have to figure out a few things first:
1) Do we think it's an accurate metric as it lies right now?
2) What do we do/how do we market the metric? Does it just sit there in the resources tab of our site, or do we market it as something more "meaningful" to the world in some way?
3) If the metric is to be taken more seriously, there has to be a tangible value attached to it. Do we go down the road of holding the POWER 100 CHAMPIONSHIP and setting that up as something "important"? 100 players, $500 entry, $50K prize pool . . . Feel The Power!
4) Do I reach out to all the Power 100 radio stations in the country for sponsorship? There seem to be quite a few
For now I'll stew over the metric like I stew over everything else the IFPA has ever done. We haven't seen how volatile it is after a 'big tournament' gets submitted. Do players move faster than WPPR or slower? Do they move faster than the Rating/Eff% metrics or slower? Is the 3 month window too long, too short? Is the comparison of the top 250 players too few, too many?
I welcome any opinions on whether that metric seems useful for society, both philosophically on how and why that kind of comparison is meaningful (comparing the 'best to just the best'), and the actual results themselves.
