It is - the top two from each group move on. That much is clear from the first post in the preparation topic.

What I think joachimt has written out there is the scoring mechanism to determine winners - each group will have a winner and a second place, and he lays out how ranks are determined and how ties are broken, and how it's handled in the event the tie can't be broken. Admittedly, it's not super clear from that text that two countries move on, but they do, and that info is around.

Aha, cheers Maxwell! Silly me. Yes, that makes sense now.

Loving the Documentary Challenge and all its contributions, by the way. I've seen a few over the last while. Must add them to the thread when I get a chance!

Looking at my group, I'm utterly screwed. I guess that's where not feeling the urge to watch movies gets you.

Oh and most of the movies I haven't seen look appealing.

Well, the vast majority here will want the Engish subs, which sadly are vastly lacking. Personally, I'd never nominate a film with machine translated English subs.
Well, I do not remember the subs impacting in any way my viewing of the film to be honest. I wouldn't have picked it otherwise.
I didn't have any trouble while watching it, as far as I remember. I might have different subs. Will look it up one of these days.

Yeesh. I work 80 hours a week in a public service job dedicated to restoring some hope and opportunity to a society falling apart because of racial animus and social inequality.

And now I get a wall of shame because I don't have the time to properly indulge my sole remaining source of pleasure in the world?

Does 40 hours of regular work and 40 hours of raising future generations also count as an 80 hours job? :innocent:

- You must watch all 4 films of a match before you vote.
- To vote, rank the 4 films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)
- The winner of the match is the film that beats the other 3 films head-to-head. If A "beats" B, it means that A is ranked higher than B more often than B is ranked higher than A.
- If there's no winner using this method, it'll be decided by average rank.
- If there's no winner using average rank, there'll be a 3 day extension of the match hoping for new votes.
- Don't vote in this thread. Each match will have its own thread according to the schedule.

I've seen 5, of which 2 are my own picks. It's an increase from previous seasons, though, where I'd only seen 1 and 2 in advance.

I think I'm tortured by a strong sense of inadequacy and, having been born into some privilege, a constant need to prove that I'm not lazy. But don't let me get going down this road.

And in answer to your question, caffeine.

I've been thinking about the scoring system and how it would work out with four countries in a group. With three it was rather easy: two wins is the winner. Two countries with one win and one tie is decided by average rank etc...

Now with four. In theory any result head-to-head is possible. So let's try this for example:

A>B
A>C
A<D
B>C
B=D
C=D

A: 2 win, 0 tie, 1 loss
B: 1 win, 1 tie, 1 loss
C: 0 win, 1 tie, 2 loss
D: 1 win, 2 tie, 0 loss

Which country is the winner? A, because it won two? Or D because it lost none? It would be weird in this case if A is the winner and D second, while D beats A head to head. You could say it doesn't matter, because they both proceed anyway this way, but I could think of situations like this between #2 and #3 as well.

So what would be the best way? I think it would be to say a win is 2 points, a tie is 1 point and a loss is 0 points. A tie in points is solved with average rank. In the example above A and D would both have 4 points, B has 3 points and C has 1 point.

Thoughts?

That doesn't answer my question. What do you think is the winner? Two wins and one loss, or one win and two ties? Do you agree on my point-system?

After that, it's either average rank or vote-difference. I don't see why we should change that rule.

2 wins imho.
Maybe a point system with a win = 3 points works better?

It took me longer than I care to admit to work out the scoring in my head. But now that I understand...

(I had to google this, but) Standard world cup scoring is Win = 3 points, Draw = 1 point, Loss = 0 points. So, in your example, A has six points, D has five points, B has four points, and C has one point. Pretty clear who moves on from there. With a 2/1/0 scoring system for Win/Draw/Loss, the same countries would move on, but it's less clear. It depends on how much you value wins vs. ties. Personally, I'd prefer the 3/1/0 scoring like with the FIFA World Cup, but that's just my opinion.

I'm not considering vote difference. Average will remain the tie-breaker.

But what do you think should win: two wins or one win and two ties?

3/1/0 is done in sports because it promotes goal scoring and disincentivizes bottling up to preserve a tie, not because it's fairer. There's no need for such incentives in this case. In joachimt's example D should be the winner.

(I had to google this, but) Standard world cup scoring is Win = 3 points, Draw = 1 point, Loss = 0 points. So, in your example, A has six points, D has five points, B has four points, and C has one point. Pretty clear who moves on from there. With a 2/1/0 scoring system for Win/Draw/Loss, the same countries would move on, but it's less clear. It depends on how much you value wins vs. ties. Personally, I'd prefer the 3/1/0 scoring like with the FIFA World Cup, but that's just my opinion.
In previous years we didn't use a point-system, because it wasn't needed. With only three countries in a group there are far less possibilities. In all those cases the winner or the ties are clear, even without points.

I'm not considering vote difference. Average will remain the tie-breaker.

I'm saying we should change the scoring and go with average rank as the primary ranking system. Wins/losses is a silly way to look at film matchups when everyone is ranking all the films anyway. That said as I wrote above, one win, two ties should be the winner.

For me, two wins should win. I would value one win over two ties, which can be solved by 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie.

If you wanted to value two ties over one win, you could make a win = 3 points, and a tie = 2 points.

If you wanted to value one win and two ties equally, win = 2 points, tie = 1 point.

So you disagree with Lonewolf on this. Based on what rules should D be the winner?

Personally I think two wins equals one win and two ties, so A vs D should be decided by average rank.

Now I think the average rank is best 'cause it's most simple and fair.

I'd like to hear mjf's opinion on this. If I remember correctly he was the one who introduced the head-to-head method.

Based on head to head. If you're making up the existence of wins and ties and ranking films that way, then since two wins equals a win+2 ties the tie breaker should be the winner between the two. But since I don't actually think we should be looking at things as wins and losses average rank is fine since it's what we should really be using anyway.

Every voting/ranking system of this sort will have an outlier scenario where an "unfair" result happens, by the way.

Take for example:
10 people vote A>B>C>D
9 people vote B>C>D>A
that means
A is 3W-0L Avg 2.42
B is 2W-1L Avg 1.52
C is 1W-2L Avg 2.52
D is 0W-3L Avg 3.52

Even above I think the winner should be B, but the win loss system makes it seem like A is the clear victor when it's a very divisive film.


If one more person votes B>C>D>A then suddenly it becomes
A is 0W-0L-3D Avg 2.5
B is 2W-0L-1D Avg 1.5
C is 1W-1L-1D Avg 2.5
D is 0W-2L-1D Avg 3.5

How should this tie be broken? A and C have the same average rank and a head to head draw. C has a win, but also a loss, while A has no losses.

Good example.
I'm going to sleep on this. Still have 12 days left to figure this out.

Nothing. That's what PA is saying.
