How do you compute ranks when there are ties?

A player's rank essentially represents their position in a list of players sorted by their performance or scores.

The player with the highest score is given the rank 1, which means they are the top-performing player.

If there are multiple players with the same score, they all share the same rank. This is called a "tie."

When determining the rank of the next best player (the player with the next highest score), all tied players are taken into account. So, the rank of the next best player will "skip" ahead to accommodate the tied players.
