Can't you devide quidditch scores by ten and get exactly the same
result? 1 for a goal and 15 for the snitch?
I must be missing something here.
where you just get so many points for a win (and presumably fewer for a
draw, and none for losing) because several times one house has to beat
another by a certain score in order for Gryffindor (as it's told from
their perspective) to win the Quidditch Cup.
And I suspect the factor of 10 is required because ISTR goals/points
also contribute to the House Cup somehow.
Then again, as it's all to do with numbers, given it's JKR writing it,
it's probably best not to enquire into the mechanics too deeply!
nothing to fear from JKR. As for the Quidditch scores, or wins, having
something to do with the House cup, then don't. There seems to be no
relationship between them, although it seems to me that winning the
Quidditch cup should contribute some points to the House Cup contest,
there is no evidence I have seen to imply that it does.
At first, Gryffindors passing the giant hourglasses that recorded
the house points the next day thought there'd been a mistake.
How could they suddenly have a hundred and fifty points fewer
than yesterday? And then he story started to spread: Harry
Potter, the famous Harry Potter, their hero of two Quidditch
matches, had lost them all those points, him and a couple of
other stupid first years.
From being one of the most popular and admired people at the
school, Harry was suddenly the most hated. Even Ravenclaws
and Hufflepuffs turned on him, because everyone had been
longing to see Slytherin lose the house cup. Everywhere Harry
went, people pointed and didn't trouble to lower their voices as
they insulted him. Slytherins, on the other hand, clapped as he
walked past them, whistling and cheering, »Thanks Potter, we
owe you one!«
Only Ron stood by him.
»They'll all forget this in a few weeks. Fred and George have
lost loads of points in all the time they've been here, and people
still like them.«
»They've never lost a hundred and fifty points in one go,
though, have they?« said Harry miserably.
»Well no«, Ron admitted.
It was a bit late to repair the damage, but Harry swore to
himself not to meddle in things that weren't his business from
now on. He'd had it with sneaking around and spying. He felt so
ashamed of himself that he went to Wood and offered to resign
from the Quidditch team.
»Resign?« Wood thundered. »What good'll that do? How are we
going to get any points back if we can't win at Quidditch?«
Excellent catch, as usual, Chris!
When I saw the other post, I was just somehow sure that Quiddich
points were somehow connected to the House Cup, but well done finding
TO me, it would make sense to give house points for winning a game, or at least some for winning the Quidditch cup, and there is obviously no correlation between Quidditch scores, and House Cup points. As far as I know, the issue is never specifically mentioned.
