Every time you play in a tournament in The League you will accumulate points if, and only if, you finish in the top 15% of that that tournament. For example, if a tournament has 1,000 players you will need to finish in the Top 150 to score points. Players who do not finish in the Top 150 will not score points.The simple scoring formula only considers how many players are in a tournament, and your finishing position at the end of it, to determine any points awarded.
Points = 10 * sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)
"n" is the number of players that participated in the tournament. "k" Your position in the tournament. (Winner =1)
For each level of The League, the maximum number of tournaments a player can play each month is capped at 32. Only your best 15 tournament results each month will count towards your Leader Board position.
