FAQ Section:

Q: How is our team's score calculated? A: Your team's score is calculated by adding your Placement Points (based on your team's final standing in each match) to your Elimination Points (1 point per elimination). The final score is the average of your scores from all games played.

Q: Why are both placement and eliminations considered in the scoring? A: This scoring system is designed to reward both survival strategy and combat skill. Balancing placement and eliminations encourages teams to engage in battles wisely and survive until the end, aligning with competitive Fortnite's best practices.

Q: Can we score points even if we don't win a match? A: Yes! Points are awarded not just for winning but also for your final standing and the number of eliminations. This ensures that every match contributes to your team's overall score.

Q: What happens in the event of a tie? A: In the case of a tie, the tie-breaker will be the total number of eliminations across all games. If still tied, the highest single-game placement will determine the winner.

Q: Why is the average score used instead of the total score? A: Using the average score ensures that teams are evaluated on their consistent performance across all games, making the competition fairer, especially if teams play a different number of games due to the tournament structure.

Q: Where can we find the leaderboard updates during the tournament? A: Leaderboard updates will be shared periodically in the Discord server and on the event page. Stay tuned for real-time updates on your team's standing. (Live Leaderboard Updates depend on event staffing limitations)

Q: How can we improve our score? A: Focus on strategic gameplay, aiming for higher placements and securing eliminations. Balancing aggressive plays with survival tactics can maximize your scoring potential.

This scoring system and FAQ aim to ensure clarity and fairness in the competition, aligning with competitive standards and enhancing the overall tournament experience for all participants.
