    We’ve hinted at the addition of tiered rankings since the middle of NFL season, and now they’re here!

    You can find these new tiered rankings in the “Rankings” main menu item as well as in the “Rankings Summary” console on user profile pages. Check them out when you have a chance and see how you stack up against your peers!

    Tiered leaderboards group players into “weight classes” based on average buy-in (limited to single, best qualifying score per tournament). Scores are tallied from $10K+ prize pool tournaments and do not include live finals (which, for the purposes of these tiered rankings have a $0 buy-in).

    Weight classes were chosen based on a combination of natural buy-in divisions and exponential distribution. The higher the weightclass, the fewer the number of members. Your tier is defined as your average buy-in, counting only one entry per contest such that if you multi-enter 10 entries in a $1 buy-in tournament, that would only count as one entry against your average buy-in for tier categorization.

    Time range is the last sliding 365 days, and sport diversity bonuses are factored into point totals in the same manner as our overall Grinders Rankings. Tiers are divided into the following groups:

    Grrind your way to the top of your weightclass!

    This is very very cool. It’s a great addition to the site. If you are a person who strives to find his name near the top of a leaderboard, there wasn’t much chance of that happening in the old system. Now there is reason feel like you can climb the boards.
    Nice addition

    This is cool and all, but, what does it matter? I haven’t had results posted to my profile in almost 2 months. How am I supposed to move up in the rankings?

    (I apologize if I missed a post about manually sending in your own results)

  • dude_abides7

    Very cool. Great job!

    It is just a shame that league play or other smaller GPP’s aren’t factored. (Trust me I know the reason). It’s just as a “Bantamweight” NHL grinder, the only contest that meets your requirement is the $2 Breakaway. Taking down multiple 100 man league games a week is how I finance my GPP only approach and unfortunately those are not included. :(

    In any event, this is still great, Awesome job and thanks,

    DraftKings results are 7-10 days behind and nearly caught up. FanDuel results are taking a bit longer and are currently 4-5 weeks behind.

    I know you guys are working hard on this, it is appreciated.

    Awesome! Are there going to be awards for each division at the end of the year? That would make competition even better.

    I can’t imagine they wouldn’t make yearly badges.

    This is awesome. Great work

  • bretboy

    This is awesome! @RRT How quickly after results are posted does it update the top rankings? For example I just had 6 NBA tourneys posted, but my NBA Ranking didn’t change or update those points.

    Thanks for all you do!

    Hi,
    NBA rankings normally update once a week, by the end of the week those 6 results should be included in your NBA ranking.

    In your profile under rankings summary you will see your group. You can the view the leader-boards for all groups by clicking rankings at the top of the page, then tiered rankings.

    I also have had issues with my rankings. I had a top 10 finish in NFL on FD (out of 16K or so) that never posted to the rankings from October. I also am missing numerous DK football results and almost all of my NBA play on FD for the entire season. I email support (with no response) and have posted in a couple of threads where others complained, so I have pretty much given up.

    EDIT: It does appear that most of my NBA results from DEC have been added, although I do see days that results were missed for 1 reason or another. I do wish they would have got that NFL finish from October though, that was my best NFL finish ever :(

    Bantamweight seems ok to start, just hope I can be a contender lol.

    I just don’t play enough volume anymore (busy coaching basketball so I really can’t play NBA) so I pretty much gave up on the rankings. Plus, my DK results aren’t even correct on the DK CSV. I don’t blame RG though, it’s not all their fault. They’re working hard on this.

    I did not. Ill check my spam folder.

    Thanks, i had to sign out and back in for it to update

  • crazypaul

    Also would just like to say thanks so much for doing the rankings this way. Seeing that I am ranked 621 out of almost 11K people in the flyweight division is very encouraging. As a low buy-in player I always wondered where I would rank among similarly bankrolled players.
