How League Points are Determined

League points are determined by each member’s three highest finishes, adjusted by the number of players in each event. Since the maximum players is 40, the formula for determining win value is the reverse-place finish times the number of players divided by 40. For example, a 5th place finish in a 16-person event is worth 4.8 points, e.g., (165+1) * (16/40). Alternatively, a 5th place finish in a 32-person event is worth 32.4 points. 

In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by the total number of points earned, including all finishes… not just their top three finishes.
