There is no fee to register or participate in the Tournament.

4.  Tournament Game & Scoring

Tournament Game:   The purpose of this Tournament is to use your data analysis and strategy skills to create a team of 5 players, selected from the player cards, that will have the highest combined score out of the Qualifying Matches.  A full listing of all available (unlocked) player cards will be available to the Entrants prior to the Tournament Play at https://na.alienwarearena.com/esports/fantasy/season/ecs-season-4-finals-fantasy-contest/lineup. Entrants will select a roster of 5 players and may move players on and off their roster an unlimited number of times while they are determining their strategy and prior to the start of the Tournament Play.  All player cards will be available on the “Set Lineup Section” of the Tournament site and may be swapped with other players on the roster.     

Player cards contain the name of a player from a team participating in the Qualifying Matches listed below.   

Qualifying Matches: The scores from the following qualifying matches ("Qualifying Matches") listed below will be used to determine winners of prizes.  There are 13 Qualifying Matches during the Tournament Play:

Qualifying Matches

  • Group A Matches
  • Group B Matches
  • Semifinals
  • Finals

Scoring:   Each Entrant’s score will be based on the total number of kills, deaths, and assists of each player in the lineup (Kills = 1 Point, Deaths = -1 Point, Assists = 0.5 Point) for all of the Qualifying Matches.

At the end of the Tournament Play, 10 winners will be determined based on the 10 Entrants with the highest total score, calculated by adding up the scores of the 5 players on each Entrant’s roster from all of the Qualifying Matches.
