Why Have PLAYER RANKINGS ?

In the SINGLES and TEAM Events at ACS and CCS Championships, there are different DIVISIONS based on Skill Level:

A – ADVANCED
B – OPEN
C – STANDARD


  • By ranking Players and Teams and restricting the Division that they can play in, this provides everyone a better chance in competing and enjoying success.


  • The PLAYER RANKINGS are:

    P - PROFESSIONAL
    M - MASTER
    A - ADVANCED
    B - OPEN
    C - STANDARD
    U - UNRANKED

    How Do PLAYER RANKINGS Get Assigned?

  • The approach taken by the ACS and CCS is to base every player's ranking on their actual performance at previous ACS or CCS Championships.


  • Based on how a player does in successive Championships, a player's ranking may automatically go up or down.


  • For the first ever Championship attended, every player or team starts on the bottom rung unless assigned otherwise based on 'KA - Known Ability'.
  • Player Rankings will be updated at the end of each league year based on player performance in all tournaments competed in that year.


  • 1. ACS and CCS PERFORMANCE RANKINGS

  • All Players are assigned a PERFORMANCE RANKING after every 8Ball SINGLES or 8Ball TEAM Event of any CCS or ACS Championship as follows:


  • 8Ball SINGLES

    M MASTERS
    Top 12% of A-Advanced Finals

    A ADVANCED
    Top 12% of B-Open Finals
    Made $ but not in top 12% in A-Advanced Finals

    B OPEN
    Top 12% of C-Standard Finals
    Made $ but not in top 12% in B-Open Finals
    Made no $ in A-Advanced Finals

    C STANDARD

    Made no $ in A-Advanced Finals

    C STANDARD
    Not in Top 12% of C-Standard Finals
    Made no $ in B-Open Finals

    2. ACS and CCS PLAYER RANKINGS

  • The PERFORMANCE RANKINGS are then used to assign two PLAYER RANKINGS to each player, one for Team play and one for Singles play that will apply in future Championships.


  • A PLAYER'S 'TEAM' RANKING

  • Will consist of the highest of the Player's last 2 PERFORMANCE RANKINGS in 8Ball TEAM Events since 2005 in any CCS or ACS Championship, prior to the current league year.


  • A Player's 'TEAM' RANKING may not be lower than their 'SINGLES' RANKING.


  • A PLAYER'S 'SINGLES' RANKING

  • Will consist of the highest of the Player's last 2 PERFORMANCE RANKINGS in 8Ball SINGLES Events since 2005 in any CCS or ACS Championship, prior to the current league year.


  • A Player's 'SINGLES' RANKING may not be more than one level lower than their 'TEAM' RANKING.


  • 3. ACS and CCS Professional and Master Players

  • Any player who is on the NE – ACS Professional List is not eligible to compete in any ACS or CCS Championship.


  • Players who have achieved the M Masters PLAYER RANKING ranking will stay at that ranking until they have successfully petitioned through ACS or CCS to be moved down to a lower ranking.


  • 4. KA - Known Ability

  • The ACS and CCS reserves the right to assign or change any PLAYER RANKING based on KA – Known Ability.


  • Fargo ratings will be used for KA as follows:

    Professional – 720 Men / 630 Women

    Master – 650 Men / 525 Women

    Advanced – 615 Men / 500 Women

    Rankings of Advanced or higher on KA are frozen unless successfully appealed otherwise.

    A Player without a Ranking will be designated as ‘U’ Unknown. A ‘U’ Ranking will be considered the equivalent of C Standard, unless assigned otherwise based on KA.

    For the Standard Division of Singles events:

    League Sanctioned players – must be pre-approved by their League Operator.

    Non-League Sanctioned players – are not eligible. Must play in the Open or higher Division.

    A female playing in a ‘Team – All’ or ‘Singles – All’ event will be assigned a ranking one level lower.

    How Are The PLAYER RANKINGS Used?

    8Ball SINGLES

  • The PLAYER 'SINGLES' RANKING of either M Master, A Advanced, B Open or C Standard assigned to a player will directly determine the lowest Division of Singles that the Player is eligible to compete in.


  • An M Master ranked player must play in the Advanced Division.


  • A player may enter a Division higher than their ranking if they want to.

    8Ball TEAM

  • The PLAYER 'TEAM' RANKING of either M Master, A Advanced, B Open or C Standard assigned to each of the Players on the Team Roster will determine an overall TEAM RANKING of either A+ Advanced Plus, A Advanced, B Open or C Standard which in turn will directly determine the lowest Division that the Team is eligible to play in, as follows:

    A+ Advanced Plus Division

    2 or more Players are M Master team ranked

    A Advanced Division

    No more than 1 Player is M Master team ranked
    2 or more Players are A Advanced team ranked

    B Open Division

    No more than 1 Player is A Advanced team ranked
    2 or more Players are B Open team ranked

    C Standard Division

  • A team may enter a higher Division than their ranking if they want to.
