Leypool Stats: How it Works
URGENT!!!  ALWAYS READ THE NOTICES ON THE FRONT PAGE www.leypool.co.uk
Merit Overview:
The merit system reflects the quality of your opposition.
You can look up weekly Match Cards in the 1HM / 2HM sections.
Detailed player stats.
Merit System:
Play a top player with 95% win rate, 5% loss rate:
Merit Score for Winning:  +1.95
Merit Score for Losing: -0.05
Play a poor performer with 15% win rate, 85% loss rate:
Merit Score for Winning:  +1.15
Merit Score for Losing: -0.85
Play an average player with 50% win rate, 50% loss rate:
Merit Score for Winning:  +1.50
Merit Score for Losing: -0.50
So, to recap: 1 point for a win plus a fraction of the opponents win rate. As the season unfolds your merit bonuses from previous weeks will automatically alter as your past opponents' win/loss % updates. (That means if you beat someone in week 1 it will show a 1.00 merit bonus as they are on 0%, but your week 1 bonus will climb as that player goes on to register wins in future weeks. Losing results in the reduction of a fraction of the opponent's loss % rate.
Scoring a win against NO PLAYER
When a player claims a win where the opposing team is unable to field a player,  they will get 1 for the win plus bonus based on the average win rate of all players in the division.
Merit Holiday Entitlement:
Under the old system, active players in the hunt for a merit were punished
for being on holiday.
So regular players who've played 10 games by week 14 will qualify for up
 to a maximum of 2 week's merit holiday allowance, being reimbursed 
 1.000 (the minimum merit score for a win) per missed week/s.
The entitlement doesn't apply to holidays taken in the last 2 weeks of the
season. This is to avoid situations where merit leaders win the merit 
by being absent at the finale.
