OK, I will include Tier 1 in the following graph.
Just a couple of notes here.
We are trying to restrict weekly calculations to about 8,000 to 9,000 fighters.
When somebody drops below 4 in Current Rating, then we donít calculate Current Score for that fighter.
Otherwise, our weekly calculations might include tens of thousands and it would take several hours more to finish all calculations.
We have all fighters that belong to Tier 3 and up.
It might happen that we are missing some fighters ( some newcomers) from Tier 2.
Tier 2 is for fighters with Current Rating 8 to 11.
Right now we have 1148 fighters in Tier 2. That is probably about 98%.
Tier 1 is for fighters with Current Rating 4 to 7.
Right now we have about 5000 fighters in Tier 1. This number is always changing, because some people drop out, and we always include new fighters.
I estimate that we have about 90% fighters from Tier 1.
In theory, we should have Tier 0 fighters as well. Those are all beginners and those with bad, bad records. They would have rating from 0 to 3.
That would include all professional fighters and number is probably close to 40,000.
