Changes to WAGC points system

Dear all,

The SAGA council has unanimously approved the following changes to the
WAGC points system:

1. Maximum number of participation points reduced from 2000 to 1000; no
change to number of points awarded per game or classification of
different game types.

2. Placement points up to a maximum of 250 awarded to each of the 4 SAGA
internet tournaments, with the number of points for specific places as
below. (These values were calculated using the same scale as for the SA
Championship, with each value rounded to the nearest multiple of 5.)

1st: 250
2nd: 210
3rd: 170
4th: 145
5th: 120
6th: 90
7th: 80
8th: 65
9th: 55
10th-12th 30
13-16th 15
rest: 5

Ties to be broken using SOS and SOSOS.

Note that the maximum number of points available if changes 1 and 2 are
implemented remains 4000 – this means that existing points retain their
current value and the points subtraction system does not have to be

3. Placement points for the SA Championship awarded as at present, except
share points awarded in case of ties instead of applying tiebreaks.

4. Points subtracted on representing South Africa to be no more than twice
the maximum number of points available. I.e. if the number of points to
be subtracted according to the current formula is more than 8000, only
8000 points are subtracted.

5. If the South African representative at an international tournament wins
that tournament, s/he is automatically offered the chance to defend the
title the next time that tournament is held, irrespective of his/her
credit points at that moment. Credit points for such representation
will be subtracted as usual.
