Cal’s Scale of Hardness – Finals Edition
Cal’s Scale of Hardness is BACK! It’s better than before with new improved complex formula stuff and things
Here we go again… I have been working very hard today with my cal-culator and have crunched the numbers for the run home over the Fantasy finals.
The complex formula is even more complex than ever before. Also, because we all like pretty colours, I’ve added a beautiful blue into the mix.
The “Difficulty Rank” are the teams ranked, based on how hard they are to score against.
But this time, I weighted more importance on the last four weeks than the points they have given up over the course of the year.
Although this did come into my cal-culations, the percentage of weight in the last four weeks is much higher than what numbers that teams have given up over the course of the year. Both still play a factor and both were still cal-culated.
The chart with the last four rounds is simple to understand, and it’s based solely off the colour ranks in the “Difficulty Rank” list.
However when cal-culating the teams with the best run home, I have also added ‘bonus points’ to teams who are at home to travelling teams. This is weighted on a percentage based on how many points they have given up over the last four weeks alone.
Of course, some home games are ‘insignificant’. Such as Geelong traveling to Etihad to play the Bombers. This is an Essendon home game, but with no particular advantage to them playing a Melbourne based team, and no particular disadvantage to the Cats.
I’ve more so focused on inter-state travel. Such as in the Adelaide v Brisbane game this week. Adelaide at home have been granted ‘bonus’ points under my complex system as they will be at a huge advantage this week. However when they play Port in round 22, no bonus was of course given.
1 – Teams are ranked based on what they have given up in the last four weeks and overall this year, with more emphasise on the last four games.
2 – Teams with a significant home ground advance have been awarded ‘bonus points’ based on the amount of points the team they are playing are conceding in recent weeks.
3 – Hope that makes sense.
Just trust me… everything is in tip top condition here.
