Preliminary Round

  1. Points are obtained by the following system, and the players are ranked in descending order of points.
    points = W / N + W * 0.02 (W = number of wins, N = number of games) 
    Example: you win 3 out of 6 games, you collect 3/6 + 3 *0.02 = 0.56 points.
    Example: you win 4 out of 8 games, you collect 4/8 + 4 *0.02 = 0.58 points.
  2. When 2 players have the same points, the player with the higher number of 
    wins is ranked higher.
  3. When 2 players have the same points and same number of wins, the player with the 
    higher SOS (sum of opponents scores) is ranked higher.
  4. When players have with the same points and the same number of wins and the same 
    SOS, the players are ranked equal.
Final Round
