AOWH Sanctioned PBEM Tournament Rankings

Players who participate in AOWH Sanctioned PBEM Tournaments either hosted by or sanctioned by Age of Wonders Heaven receive points for every tournament match that they win. These points accumulate over time, and are used to rank players in terms of their relative success in AOWH sanctioned PBEM tournaments. While skill plays a major role in tournament success, other factors such as opponents faced, maps played and simple luck will also factor into a player's tournament ranking. Thus it is important to remember that these rankings do not determine the best Age of Wonders players, but simply the most successful players in AOWH Sanctioned PBEM Tournaments.

The Rank Point System

Players accumulate ranking points for every tournament match that they win according to the following rules:

  • 1 point for every First Round win.
  • 2 points for every Round of 16 win.
  • 4 points for every Quarter-Final win.
  • 8 points for every Semi-Final win.
  • 16 points for every Final win.

If a tournament has more than 5 rounds, then wins in the additional rounds (Round of 32, Round of 64, etc.) are worth 1 point. If a tournament has less than 5 rounds, then rounds are eliminated in the following order: Round of 16, Quarter-Final, etc. Thus for every tournament, a First Round win is worth 1 point and a Final win is worth 16 points.
