Kanban League Help
Players get ready to compete in a TTCentral kanban league event by choosing their league and entering an "Access Key" on the
TTCentral.com webapp. The league director will post this key or share it at the facility hosting the league. The
webapp guides you through the login/sign-up/check-in process. If you do not have a smartphone or computer, any
other checked in player can sign you up. When enough players are checked in, the director will schedule matches.
You will be paired with a competitor and assigned to an available table. If you check in after match play has
begun, you may be immediately assigned to match. Either you or your competitor can score your match on your
phone or tablet.
- To view all all the event's matches and players, click on the "Event" tab in the TTCentral.com menu.
- Click your name or enter it in the "name.." textbox to see all your past and upcoming matches.
- Click "Score Match" to score your match.
Matches continue to be scheduled each time a table becomes available throughout the period of the event until a
director halts match generation. If you are going home early, enter or click on your name under the event tab
"players" listing. Then click "Check out". Any upcoming match will NOT be canceled. To check out and default
your last match, first check out, and then click the red "X" next to your match listing.
Any match can be defaulted, however if you are still checked in, a new match may be immediately scheduled.
TTCentral.com uses a rating system based on that used by
rank players and assign matches. After each match, your ratings are adjust. Normally, the losing player's rating
will go down, and the winning player's rating will go up. The amount of the adjustment is determined by the
rating difference between you and your opponent, and whether or not it was an upset.
The above rating algorithm is only applied when both players have played before in a TTCentral.com event and
have records of both wins and losses. If a new player competes against an existing player, only the new
player's rating is adjusted. The system may radically change the new player's rating until that player has a
record of both wins and losses. Then their rating becomes the average of their best win and worst loss.
If both competitors are new, their match, game, and point results may be used to adjust their ratings.
Each time a match completes, the scheduler tries to schedule a new match. Players are matched with each
other based on how closely they are ranked and how many matches they have played. Players whose ranks are
too far apart based on a criteria the director chooses will not be matched. Players who have not played as
many matches are favored. If no table is available, players may be placed "on deck".
