Score

Each position will have a specific stat tracked to determine performance over the course of Blitzbowl 2016. The better a tank performs, the more points it'll earn for its team.

Point Criteria by Position

Quarterback - Tanks destroyed
Defense - Survivability
Running Back - Distance traveled
Wide Receiver - Total damage to enemy vehicles
Tight End - Total damage done with player's assistance (track + spotting damage)
Flex - Total medals earned
Kicker - Accuracy (hit rate, not penetration rate)

How Are Scores Calculated?

Winning vehicles are decided by the percentage out of the total value earned by both vehicles. The winning vehicle receives points according to percentage over 50%, while the losing vehicle will get half of the difference between their final value and 50%, rounded down. Exact ties will result in 0 points for both teams, while ties scoring 50% that aren't exactly tied (i.e. 50.XX%) will result in the winning team receiving 1 point and the losing team receiving 0 points.

Example: If the winning team earns 55% of the total score and the losing team earns 45% of the total, the winning team will receive 5 points (55% - 50% = 5%) and the losing team receives 2 points (50% - 45% = 5% /2 = 2.5%).

Rules

  • You must play 50 battles in the vehicle you wish to qualify in.
  • You will only be eligible to win once.
