Headlining our meta-events is the Grand Prix Championship which seeks to find the best all-round games player across 7 days of high level competition. We’re back in 2024 with the same format that crowned Maciej Brzeski our 2023 champion! The competition has been designed to compact this championship into just 21 Premier events so that players can compete for this title without having to commit to our full Grand Prix schedule. Don’t worry though, we’ll still have lots of tournaments going on from 2nd February to 17th March 2024.
In addition to the Grand Prix Championship, we will also be looking for champions in our 7 different categories of games. The 7 different categories are:
Unlike the Grand Prix Championship, any tournament can be used towards your Category Championship score providing that it is in the right category. You can see which category all tournaments will count towards from our Tournament Details page.
In 2024 we will be utilising the Pentamind formula to determine the winners of each of our meta-events. For the all round Grand Prix Championship competition, there are 21 eligible Premier events (see below) with 3 played on each of 7 selected days. Players may play in as many of these tournaments as they wish, but only your best 5 will be used to calculate your GP score. Other category meta-events will follow the same Pentamind style scoring system, but players can use any combination of events from within the category regardless of whether those events are counted towards the all rounders competition.
The Grand Prix formula rewards players with points based on their performance at the end of each tournament, as follows:
For events with 100 or less players:
For events with over 100 players:
where N is the number of players and P is the player’s finishing position in the event. If a player finishes tied for position with another player or players then P is the average of the finishing positions they tied for (eg 6 players finishing tied for positions 10 to 15, P = 12.5)
In the (unlikely) event of a tie for the best Grand Prix score, then the Grand Prix Championship will be shared.
The Premier event selected games and schedule is as shown below. Our intention is to rotate games in and out of the Premier schedule year to year to keep this competition fresh.
