With the RPF winter olympics right around the corner, we thought we’d let you guys know how the point system will work overall, and for each individual event.
There will be two main scoring methods.
- The first will be an overall team scoring points system.
- The second will work as a round robin tournament style system.
Sled race) In a sled racing olympic event, 1 team member from each team will race head to head at once. (4 total) Whichever player wins the race will earn 1 point for his or her team. We will repeat this race until everyone has gone one time. Ultimately, the team with the most points will win the sled racing event gold medal. The team with the second and third most points will get silver or bronze accordingly.
Card jitsu) With card jitsu, we will have teams face off in a big bracket. The winners of round one will go through to face the other winners in round two. The loser is out as soon as they lose one match. This will continue until there is a winner, a runner-up, and a third place. If say team candycane gets first, second, and third place members, the team gets all three medals.
Connect four/find four: This will follow a similar bracket structure as Card Jitsu.
Dance off – The top 3 highest scores will receive medals for their team accordingly. Gold, silver, bronze.
How we calculate the winning team overall is based on a point system. Medals will get you points.
Gold medal – 40 points
Silver medal – 20 points
Bronze medal – 10 points
- Victory Streak Bonus: If your team is the overall winner (gold medalist) of 3 events in a row, it will get 10 extra points.
- Underdog Bonus: If your team got last place on the last event but first on the current one, it will get 5 extra points.
There are more olympic events that we will be made public later. They will all follow one of two scoring systems.
