Rules on league points and team competition
Ranking in the individual competitions
The participants in the league for each division will be ranked like this after each tournament:
1 points for 17th place
3 points for 9th place
6 points for 5th place
10 points for 4th place
14 points for 3rd place
18 points for 2nd place
22 points for 1st place
This setup rewards participation, and ensures that the winners of each tournament are rewarded with an equal amount regardless of the size of the tournament. This is a deliberate move to encourage participation in all tournaments of the league, especially the smaller ones.
The winner will be the person with the most points after all four tournaments have concluded.
Ranking in the team competition
After each tournament the top four scoring individual points from each team will be summed up and added to the team competition score, but not more than 2 scores from a division. This might be four scores in 2 divisions, or split up between all 4 divisions (longsword, women longsword, sabre, rapier&daga). The top four highest scores, are what counts. For teams with less than four fencers in the tournament, the top scores makes up the team score.
If you change club during the league season the club points stays with the club you represented when you won the points.
The winner of the team competition will be the team with the most points after all tournaments have concluded.
If two fencers/teams end up on the same final score after all tournaments the final placing will be decided by the highest amount of highest individual scores. If the amount of highest scores is equal, second highest scores are compared, then third highest and so on. Please note that in the team competition it is still only the top four scores in each tournament that counts.
In case two fencers/teams share the same place after taking into account the amount of highest scores, the size of the tournament where they received their highest scores(s) will be used as the final tie-breaker.
