Each tournament features a generous added cash prize pool, but it is the league points which every player is looking to get their hands on. Even if you aren’t one of the players to finish in the top 10 each week, there is one point awarded to each player just for participating.

Don’t forget to choose one event as a wild card tournament, where you will earn double league points. This means that regardless of the outcome of your chosen event, you will receive 2 league points, while you could go home with 41 league points for a victory. In order to receive their double points, players must announce their wild card tournament on the dedicated forum thread prior to the start of the chosen event.
