Point Scaling

On a given night, based on the number of machines played and the rank of your best score on a machine, you are awarded raw points.
Eg. With 16 people playing on 4 machines you could earn 30 points for a 1st ranked score or 25 points for 2nd place, etc.
In total for any night that we play, you have a chance at receiving a max of 120 raw points (eg. 4 machines * 30 points).

On a night with 12 or fewer participants, that raw score is scaled down by a certain factor.
With only 8 players, if you were to get top score on all 4 machines that night you'd end up with 20 points (120 pts / 6)

On nights with more than 20 participants we play on more than 4 machines.
The top score of 30 is for 4 machines so we scale it down by a factor of 4/5 or 4/6 to 4/7 or 4/8 giving you 24, 20, 17 or 15 points respectively.
If you were to get top score on all machines for that night you'd still end up with 120 raw points (4*30, 5*24, 6*20, 7*17 or 6*20 pts)

Ideally we want at least 12 people playing on 4 machines to make the scoring system as balanced as possible.Fewer players means fewer points.
