Athletes who have competed in five or more Tier 1 competitions this season will see a badge appear next to their name in the competition results. The badge reflects the title and rank the athlete has achieved at that point in the season. There are seven titles that reflect athlete’s current power scores. Each title has four ranks that indicate an athletes progress through the current title. As an athlete’s power score increases they will achieve the next title. Below you will find all seven titles and the power score needed to reach that title.
Let a Competition, C, have the following properties:
• CA is the set of athletes that competed in the competition (in a given division)
• CT is the type of the competition. Skills, Traditional, etc. Let an Athlete, A, have the following properties:
• AP is the place of the athlete at a competition.
• AS is the power score of the athlete.
A Competition’s K value, CK, can be calculated using the following formula where CT is the type of competition:
For an athlete, A1, the change in power score, ∆A1S, against an Athlete, A2, with a K value of K is calculated using the following function:
An Athlete’s new reset power score can be calculated using the following formula:
Power scores are numerical values athletes receive that reflect their relative skill at ninja competitions.
All athletes who have competed in a Tier 1 competition have a Power Score. However, only athletes who have competed at least five times will earn their Title and Rank.
Athletes competing for the first time start with a Power Score of 1500. Their Power Score will increase or decrease from there after their first competition.
Athletes who have competed in prior seasons will have their Power Scores re-centered toward 1500 at the start of each season. Learn more under "Why does my Power Score change between seasons?".
There are seven Titles to differentiate athletes current skill level relative to their Power Scores. Each Title has four ranks that reflect an athlete's progress to the next Title. Ranks are also directly tied to Power Scores.
Any athlete who has competed in a Tier 1 competition has a Power Score and can view it and their Power Score history via their NinjaWorks account . Ranked athletes can also find their Power Scores on our Power Rankings page.
Athletes receive a Title and Rank after competing in 5 Tier 1 competitions. Waiting 5 competitions will allow athletes adequate time to reach a rank that closely reflects their skill.
The accuracy of Power Scores increases as athletes compete more times. Therefore, we require athletes to compete 5 times before we publish their Power Score and award a Rank and Title. Any athlete who has competed in at least one Tier 1 competition can find their individual Power Score through their personal NinjaWorks Account.
There are two reasons athletes' Power Scores will adjust between seasons:
Compression Factor: All athletes will have their power scores adjusted towards our base Power Score of 1500. We do this before the start of each season to account for any skill change between seasons.
Division Change: Athletes who change divisions will have their Power Scores reset. Every time an athlete enters a new division, their Power Score will start at our base of 1500.
