Tie Breaker

  • If two players are tied for Champions Points, then Total Score for the calendar year is used to determine the higher seed.

Transferring Leagues

  • A player may carry their points from one league to another if they switch leagues between venue, league colour, or day of the week:
    • This can only happen one time without special approval;
    • Any transfer of points from one IATF member organization to another must be approved by the IATF.
  • If a player throws in multiple leagues, they can only represent themselves once in the IATC tournament and may not be ranked in multiple qualifying positions:
    • The player will be selected to represent the league in which they have the highest amount of Champions Points:
      • A Player’s standing will be ignored for any additional leagues in which they participate.;
      • e.g. if a Player places in the top 4 in a second league, then they are omitted from the standings for that second league and their spot is assigned to the next eligible player, with the next eligible player moving in to qualification, etc.
