If the showcase event has a regular tournament format and includes finals, it will be ranked in the same way as other tournaments.
However, the points awarded for showcase events using a 3-game or 4-game round-robin format differ from those awarded for the standard event that includes finals. If the event has split teams into brackets of 4 teams, we only award the champion of each bracket points. If the event has grouped teams into one large flight, we award points based on the overall flight finish; points awarded for each placement vary depending on the number of teams in the flight.
The flight values are not based on the 5 top teams in the flights. In showcase events, each team will have an event value based on the points of their direct opponents during the event.
The points awarded are based on this event value, NOT the overall flight value. To view the event value for a team at a specific event hover your cursor over the points awarded for the event on their rankings page.
Due to the heightened number of guest players used at showcase events and the fewer number of games involved the champion of a 3-game Round Robin Showcase receives 85% of the event value. The finalist of a 4-team bracket is not eligible for points.
