The ECL scoring system takes into account the fact that different ECL competitions are judged by different judges’ panels on different days and also under different competition conditions. To be as impartial as possible the ECL scoring system is placement based.
There are three categories of points that teams can receive and that will be added together for each ECL competition:
I. Attendance Points
- 10 points for attending
Any team that registers, shows up and competes at an ECL competition will receive 10 points, unless that team is disqualified.
II. 100 Point System
- 1st = 100 pts
- 2nd = 90 pts
- 3rd = 80 pts
- 4th = 70 pts
- 5th = 60 pts
- 6th = 50 pts
- 7th = 40 pts
- 8th = 30 pts
- 9th = 20 pts
- 10th = 10 pts
- 11th and lower = 0 pts
The 100 point system is what determines the points awarded for a team’s final placement. If a tie occurs at a competition, a team will be awarded the points for a team that has placed two spots down. Example: If there is a tie for 1st place and a team is the next highest after the tie, then this team will be awarded the points for a 3rd place team.
III. Placement Points
- 5 points awarded for each team your team outscores will be given up to the 15th place.
These points will be awarded for scoring higher than other teams in the division at an ECL competition. Example: A team places 2nd in a division with 5 other teams in it. This team will receive 15 points for outscoring 3 other teams (3 x 5pts).
Foreign teams (teams from non-ECU members) that are participating on the ECL competition are also taken into account when placement points are calculated for the ECU teams. However, foreign teams do not get any ECL points since they are not eligible to participate in the ECL.
Final season ranking:
Each team may compete in as many competitions during the season as they want. However, only their best 3 point totals will be accumulated for their final score for the season 2018. If a team attend less than 3 competitions, all received point totals will be accumulated in their final score.
If the division is tied on the first place the following criteria will be taken into account to determine the winner of the ECL:
- The winner becomes the team that has participated on more ECL events (in the division concerned).
- If the winner cannot be decided by the first criteria then the winner becomes the team that has participated on more ECL events where there were 3 or more teams (in the division concerned).
- If the winner cannot be decided by the first and second criteria then the winner becomes the team that has participated on more ECL event outside their country (in the division concerned).
