Ranking for Preliminary Round

  • The ranking of players will be determined based on the number of victories achieved during the three preliminary rounds.

  • In the event of ties, the first tiebreaker will be the total sum of victory points accumulated across all three games.

  • If there are still ties after the first tiebreaker, the second tiebreaker will be the sum of the percentage of victory points achieved by the players at their respective three tables. If ties still remain after that, lots will be drawn to determine the final ranking.

Example (after three rounds):

Players A and B both win 2 games. Both get 40 victory points - so there is still a tie. Now the percentages of victory points will be calculated.

For Player A:

Game 1: A gets 15 VPs, there were 48 VPs at the table, his percentage is: 31.25%.

Game 2: A gets 10 VPs, there were 42 VPs at the table, his percentage is: 35.71%.

Game 3: A gets 17 VPs, there were 46 VPs at the table, his percentage is: 36.96%.

The sum is 103.92.

For Player B:

Game 1: B gets 15 VPs, there were 35 VPs at the table, so his percentage is: 42.86%.

Game 2: B gets 18 VPs, there were 46 VPs at the table, so his percentage is: 39.13%.

Game 3: B gets 9 VPs, there were 50 VPs at the table, his percentage is: 18.00%.

The sum is 99.99.

Player A is ranked higher than Player B.
