QRF Ratings Compliments of NorthDakota-Scores.Net

What is the formula/concept?

  • If you win:

    • X points for winning the game based on opponent Class

    • Y points times number of opponent wins based on opponent’s opponents Class

  • If you lose:

    • Y/3 points times number of opponent wins based on opponent’s opponents Class

  • This calculation happens for every game, then averaged out to the QRF number you see online.

  • Once the average QRF is determined, it is compared to the average QRF of every other team in the State, and put into ranking order.
