MSQBRank 23-24

Post by CCMMSQB_2089 »

Hello! It’s been a while since we’ve done this, and admittedly we’ve been a bit behind all year. However, we’ve finally caught up… just in time for MSNCT! Like previous years, our rankings are based off of statistics; our methodology is based off of and developed by Groger Ranks, to which much credit is owed.

Rankings
We will publish a ranking set on Sunday, May 5th (right before MSNCT!), and one more ranking set after MSNCT. Our stats may be potentially slightly incomplete due to a slightly short-handed, very-busy-with-school MSQBRank team this year, but we have done our best to track as many as possible. Please note that a low amount of links for certain sets may affect ranking accuracy.

Methodology
"A big thanks to Groger Ranks, who created a formula that we use to produce scores for each tournament performance. We use powers per game, points per bonus, and negs per game to calculate the score(s) for each team. The best performance by each team is used as their final score."
Region Rankings
Our “region” definitions for our rankings are based on this map.

Our Team
Our team this year consists of the following people, all closely related to the middle school Quiz Bowl community.

Claire Chan
Andrew Gao
Elijah Guenthner
Aditya Khambekar
Joshua Li
Ahadi Yara

Errors
Please contact me (Claire) via PM on these forums or on Discord (ccdhsqb) if you spot any misspelled team names, duplicates, wrong states, false data/data that hasn’t been inputted yet, see any other errors, or have any other comments for us.

We’re looking forward to this month’s release!

We are excited to announce that we will be officially releasing our first ranking set on Sunday, May 5th, just in time for HSNCT! The original post has been updated to reflect that.

UPDATE 5/5: We plan to release around 7-8 PM tonight to accommodate for teams still playing tournaments today.

After a little scare last night when we thought our system formulas broke… we made it! With 1.7K entries of nearly 700 teams that played in nearly 150 tournaments in our database, we are excited to finally be publishing our top 100 teams ranking!

Here are our full pre-MSNCT rankings. Congratulations to this ranking set’s top 5 teams! They are as follows: Burleigh Manor A (124.63), Middlesex A (119.30), Sycamore A (118.35), Churchill A (118.22), and Redwood A (116.13).

Have a wonderful MSNCT and best of luck to all teams!

Would you guys possibly be open to doing a full ranking of the teams you had on your list? (Maybe even half?)

Hi Will! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we will not be posting full rankings and just the top 100 for this ranking set; however, we do aim to publish the top 200 after MSNCT. If you are interested in knowing your own ranking, you can contact me privately.

It has received our attention that a tournament had not been using standard NAQT format (close to it, but not the same) and had to be removed from our list. The rankings have since been updated to reflect the adjustment changes. As far as we are aware of with our re-checking, there should be no other errors, although if there are, please let us know. Our new top 5 are Burleigh Manor A, Middlesex A, Challenger-Strawberry Park A, River Trail A, and Sycamore A. We apologize for the previous inaccuracy.

Hello! We will be releasing an additional set of rankings as soon as possible after MSNCT with the following changes, per the request of coaches and players:

1. Ranking changes (e.g. moved up two places), based on the performance before MSNCT and after MSNCT
2. The release of not the top 100, but the top 200 teams!

Good luck to all at MSNCT!

Just curious, but which tournament was this?

I believe it was the GATA Middle School State Championships North.

Hi all, sorry for the very long wait... we will be releasing our final ranking set of the season tomorrow (Saturday, May 18th) without the earlier announced modifications unfortunately, due to a system crash. We aim to bring back the ranking change modification next year, and we are currently finalizing the end-of-season rankings, which will include the top 150 teams.

MSNCT happened (congrats to all those who played!), and so there were a few hundred more stats to input! As it seems like there are no more non-chimera middle school tournaments left, you may find our final ranking set of the season HERE. Congratulations to all teams, thanks for a wonderful year, and we hope to see you all back next season!
