The CPL has announced a new points system for the CPL World Tour.
The CPL announces a new point system for the $1,000,0000 World Tour.
This new point system, developed in conjunction with Bill Connolly (aka Wiseguy), rewards consistent achievement over the course of the World Tour and provides bonus points for players who win a match over higher-seeded players.
Overall, the new point system will provide a more fair representation of a player
s performance in the CPL World Tour.
At the World Tour Finals the tour participant who accumulates the most points will be awarded $20,000 by Intel (Title Sponsor of the World Tour) as the Most Valuable Player of the league. Using this new point system, it is possible for the recipient of this $20,000 to be someone other than the World Tour champion.
Point accumulation will be the primary information used to establish seeding for each Tour Stop throughout the year.
