Let's take a look at how we calculate the total score for every team in the end of preliminaries:
We take the sum contribution from every student for every mission that they have completed. Every student can earn up to 100 points for a single mission. Multiple students can complete the same mission. The sum of all missions from all students was previously shown under the “Missions” tab on the Leaderboard.
We grant points for teams’ placement on challenges like so:
Place Reward 1 7,500 2 5,000 3 3,000 4 2,000 5 1,000 6 - 10 900 11-15 800 16-20 700 21-25 600 26-30 500 31-40 400 41-50 300 51-64 0
Every team will be awarded for its rank on each of the four challenges.
We combine the points for missions and the sum from all challenges to a grand total. This total is the final rank, also known as “Seed” for the teams in the preliminaries.
We then take the seeding and use it to create the group for the group stage like so:
As you all know, all teams will automatically move on to the group stage and only the specific group they are put on is affected by the preliminaries, meaning you all have a shot at winning the League, no matter how well you did in the preliminaries, so do your best!
Good luck you all in the group stage!
*Note: The Final Challenge reveal and the beginning of the Group Stage will happen on November 29, 2 PM EST.
