Different ways to award points

Updated 1 week ago by Geoffroy "Vomact" Piot

You can fine tune the way you award points for each match and game in the following formats: Groups, League and Swiss System.
Picking one of these point awarding methods or combining them together will allow you to shape your result rewards the way you want.

Match Result

Awards points according to the match result (win, draw or loss)

The traditional Match Result method with a Win granting 3 Pts, a Draw 1 Pt and a Loss 0 Pt for the final result is the default method, because it is widely accepted in tournaments, and works fine in most cases.
But we have added two new options for specific formats, rules or personal taste.

Match Bye

EXCLUSIVE TO THE SWISS STAGES
Awards points when a participant does not play because there is no possible opponent

This will grant points to participants that are not matched against an opponent in a Swiss round, where an uneven number of participants causes a participant to not have an opponent.

Match Forfeit

Awards points when a participant is forfeit in a match (can be negative for a penalty)

This will grant points (usually negative) to participants that forfeit a match.

Match Score

Awards points equal to the match score

This option will add the score of each participant to his points. So, if combined with the Match Result method, a participant winning a match will earn 3+(his score), while the loser will only earn as many points as his score.
It is useful when you want to emphasize the importance of score, and using it as a tiebreaker is not good enough, for example.

Game Result

Awards points according to the game result (win, draw or loss)

With this option, each game of a match will grant a set number of points depending on the result. It works just like the Match Result scoring, but with points awarded for every game played.
It is useful when you want to reward participants putting up a good fight, by taking some games even when losing, for example.

Game Score

Awards points equal to the game score

This option will add the score of each game to a participant's points. Works just like the 'Match Score' system, but is calculated for the score of each game instead of just the general match score.
