Summary of the system
The point system
If you WIN the match you get points based on this formula:
Points = [1000 + (100*kills) + (25*assists) – (80*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)]
You can skip the explanation of this formula and calculate the number of points you would receive using this spreadsheet:
You get 1000 base points for winning the match, additional 100 points for each kill and 25 points for each assist. Every death gives you minus 80 points. If you are in a party you get 20% less points for every party member. That means in a party of five you would get 80% less points than you would playing alone! To put it simply; Say you played a match and got no kills, no deaths and no assits. That would give the score:
Basically, partying up to secure the win will not pay off.
If you earn enough points you get placed in one of the three reward tiers; bronze, silver or gold. Each tier unlocks different stuff that can be used during the next tournament (week). The tiers are:
Bronze - Requires 8 500 points
Silver - Requires 13 500 points
Gold - Requires 18 500 points
These items must be earned each new tournament and cannot be kept forever. But one thing can; the Djinn Skin. If you get placed in the gold tier for a total of 6 weeks (not necessarily cosecutivley) you earn the Djinn skin (forever).
That's basically it. Let me know if I've missed anything, and use the spreadsheet to find out how well you have to be playing in order to get the rewards you want. Have fun!
There is one thing I do not like about these tickets.
I spend my first ticket, got it a lobby, then the loading screen kept going on, untill I was put out of the lobby five minutes after. Lost my ticket.
I played a very good TDM (26 kills) and won, but got 2610 points in the end. It got me thinking. ''If I do this 10 times I will have 26000 points, 8000 more than is needed for gold.'' The only thing though is that I don't do that well all the time plus I have to win every match to get those 26000 points. Gold is gonna be hard to get for sure...
Nice work with the explanations and the spreadsheet pro_odeh! : )
The tournament system is not bad at all.
The fact that you got zero points when you lose is a little harsh if you ask me but... : ) Could have been 50% of the points only or 25% but at least it would net us some points!
And the "teamates de-multiplier" could have been a little lower too, but I understand the point of it.
Thanks for the positive feedback. I was just going to type the formula into excel to check out the numbers myself, when I thought I might as well make it available for everyone.
Anyway, I haven't done too good this time around. Will probably end up on silver, but that's ok. From my experience luck has least to say in three team deathmatch. It's not that hard to get 2000+ points there compared to TDM. And I wish I would have known out about the de-activate feature from the beginning
