ECR™ represents the collective opinion of the experts we track. We generate a consensus cheat sheet by calculating how many “Rank Points” each player receives based on his ranked position on each expert’s cheat sheet. Each ranked position is worth certain number of Rank Points – the better the rank, the higher the Rank Points. We add these Rank Points up for each player across all experts to determine the player’s consensus rank.
We don’t use an “average rank” because we believe this approach is flawed. Using an average requires that you assign an arbitrary rank for unranked players, which skews the results.
