The first tab has basic instructions to the running of the sheet. The second tab is the Rank Manager itself. Do not, under any circumstances, change the matrix information. It will cause the sheet to calculate incorrectly with reference to the scoring base.


If you have any questions or have located a bug, please send a private message (PM) to amethyststar or /tell Samos on any of the three main oceans. Chances are that she will be online on at least one, near constantly.
