OC-ESPORTS Competition Points (re-) Introduction to Overclocker League Update

In the next coming days, the OC-ESPORTS competition points will be added to the Overclocker League points. Your 10 best competition achievements in the past 365 days will count towards your Overclocker League points.

Early May we released a public version of the OC-ESPORTS points integration with the Overclockers League. Based on the feedback received before, during, and after the test phase we went back to work to prepare the production server for a smooth integration. This turned out to be a more difficult task than anticipated, hence the delay of pushing the additional points to the Overclockers Leagues.

You can find the latest version of the League tables currently up and running on our UAT test environment. The 10 most valuable competition achievements in the past 365 days, based on the OC-ESPORTS competition points structure, are included in the League Total. That means: 250 points for winning the live final of a competition series with qualifiers (E.g.: HyperX OC Takeover), 100 points for winning the live final of a regional competition with qualifiers (E.g.: ASUS Open Overclocking Cup), and 50 points for an online overclocking competition (E.g.: Old School is Best School Round). We've also made it more clear where your League points come from by grouping the Global and WR points together. The algorithm is thus:

League Points = SUM [ top15(GL+WR) + top20(HW) + top10(OCE) ]

Note that the points contributing to your League total are NOT equal to the points you will find in the OC-ESPORTS Official World Overclocking (Seasonal) Ranking. The League Points are based on the competitions from the past 365 days, whereas the Official World Overclocking Ranking is based on the competitions of a yearly season, starting from January 1st and ending on December 31st.

The change in rankings will be quite noticeable. For example, participants in the Rookie Rumble will see their point total grow by quite a margin. Taking for example Topdog, the current leader of the OC-ESPORTS Official World Overclocking Ranking Season 2015, we can find him move up from Rank #77 without the competition points to Rank #32 with the competition points.

We hope you enjoy your fresh batch of points and good luck in the competitions!

(PS: if you want to organize a competition series like the Old School is Best School, but different, let us know!)
