Sum of Ranks

From Speedsolving.com Wiki

Sum of ranks is the sum of the ranks in all events of a speedcuber. For example, if a speedcuber ranks no.1 in 3X3 in the world on the basis of average and no. 5 in 2X2 in the world on the basis of average, his sum of ranks in the 2 events is 6. The lesser the sum of ranks, the better it is. There are two types of sum of ranks-sum of single ranks and sum ranks and average sum of ranks. Normally when people talk about sum of ranks they talk about sum of ranks based on the whole world but there are also sum of ranks based on continents or countries.
