Blitz Showdown: How does Scoring work?
There’s a scoring system in place for the duration of this contest, and naturally, it’ll be used to determine those who’ve done particularly well out there on the battlefield.
Here’s how it’ll work:
- Each win awards a Score based on final placement. Cumulative Score across the contestants 25 matches will determine winners.
- For example, if you finish first place this’ll award you 100 points. Finishing 20th place will awad you 50 points.
- In addition to Score based on placement, the player will be awarded 3 points for each enemy they eliminate.
- Only the first 25 matches in Blitz Showdown will count towards your total score.
The table below illustrates point distribution.
If it comes down to a tie, tiebreaker rules will apply. Total kills, average placements and total wins will be taken into account to determine the overall winner.
The top 100 contestants at the end of the Contest will receive prizes.
