## Instructions - Score, Ranking and Medals

### Score

Speed Sudoku members are initially given a score of 1000. You win and lose points depending on what place you finish and how skilled your opponents are. More precisely, when you solve a sudoku puzzle you take points away from each opponent that hasn't solved it yet. The points to be awarded are calculated as (loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points from each opponent.

Let's explain this with an example. Let's say Player A, Player B and Player C are playing a game together and their scores are 1000, 500 and 2000 respectively:

1. A does very well and finishes 1st. A gets only (500/1000)*20 = 10 points from B because B is a weaker player. A also gets (2000/1000)*20 = 40 points from C, a stronger player.
2. The scores are now 1050 for A, 490 for B and 1960 for C.
3. Next, B gave up and quit. No points are exchanged.
4. Finally, C solves the sudoku puzzle. C gets (490/1960)*20 = 5 points from B. Not much, but losing 35 points overall is better than losing 40!
5. Game over. The final scores are now 1050 for A, 485 for B and 1965 for C.
