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 150th positions to score points. Players who do not finish in the Top 150 will not score points.
The scoring formula used is very simple and only considers the amount of players in a tournament and your finishing position at the end of it.
Points = 10 * sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)
"n" is the amount of players that participated in the tournament. "k" Your position in the tournament. (Winner =1)
