Guys, I understand the frustration. Right now the tiers are:
Usage% >= 32.5 = 8 points
Usage% 27.2 To 32.5 = 6 points
Usage% 22.1 To 27.2 = 4 points
Usage% 17.5 To 22.1 = 2 points
Usage% 13.7 To 17.5 = 1 point
Usage% < 13.7 = 0.5 points
As long as you have 10 points total, you're fine. Less than that incurs a penalty based on how far under you are. This penalty affects all offensive players equally.
Maybe I'm being picky, but 4 x 22% and 1 x 15% should not incur a penalty. You'd be looking at about 115+ pts per 48 I think.
The recent discussions of turnovers in the other thread you created got me to thinking about this thread. So I reread it from the start. I came across a gem:
This was from nc7
(3) Let's say Team A has players on the court with usage % of 30%, 30%, 5%, 5%, 5% and Team B players on the court all have usage % of 15%. They both add up to 75%. Are you saying they will be treated differently with regards to the possession penalty?
And here was seble's response:
(3) Yes. As I said, players are given points based on their tier. There are 5 tiers I believe. Both of those example lineups would have plenty of possessions to avoid a penalty.
Yet, according to our tier system seble so freely told us, that line-up would only have 5 total usage points and would therefore suffer a gigantic possession penalty.
I've been doing experiments with possession penalty for the past few months and have come to some more conclusions:
a) seble has no idea what he's talking about
b) nothing more need be said
