RANKINGS

How do individual rankings work?

Competitors are ranked within the IGL Rankings, which are calculated based on the amount of match-ups a competitor has been in, their overall win/loss record, which competition they competed in, and their scorecard points.

How do team rankings work?

Team rankings include the teams that have been registered through the IGL and the team members who participate within the IGL competitions to acquire points to contribute to their team’s rankings.

What is the IGL Index Score?

The IGL Index Score is a number that takes into account a competitor’s win/loss record, and weighs that appropriately depending on what bracket types they’ve participated in within the IGL. (For example, a competitor who goes 6-0 in a PRO bracket of Lights On! will achieve a higher IGL Index Score than a competitor who went 6-0 in a CHALLENGER bracket.)

When will rankings be updated after the competition is over?

Each Tournament Organizer has 5 days after the competition date to submit all the required scores/data. After the scores/data are submitted, it is reviewed for accuracy and officialized, then the rankings can be updated within 14 days after data is submitted.
