40K Tournament Format
Every scenario has a total of 10 possible points.
Whoever has the most points at the end of the game, wins. Equal points is a tie.
The tournament is W/L/D format, with accumulated points used to determine standings within a given final bracket. For example, if you end the event with a 4-2 record, you will be ranked within that bracket according to how many battle points you accumulated throughout the event. The official scoring is 1,000pts for a win, 500pts for a tie and then accumulated points within the game. So, a player with a 4-2 record who accumulated 6 points in each of his 6 games would end with a final score of (4,036 points). We score it this way so that the W/L/D record trumps accumulated points, but points earned throughout the tournament matter in determining your precise ranking in the event.
Pairings are Swiss style, based on strength of schedule.
