  2. Spot Entry Fee: Rs. 250 (The players will have to buy Aether Day passes)
  3. No Spot Registrations/Entries after 13:30:00.
  4. There are two rounds based on a point system. The top few teams (see below) after both the rounds will be qualified to play in the final round.
  5. The number of teams selected will depend on the number of registrations and hence, the number of lobbies created. The more lobbies created, the less number of teams per lobby selected for the final round. The number of teams selected for the final round will be between 10-15 overall.
  6. The reasoning behind two initial rounds is so that no team complains about landing in an unlucky spot. Even though luck is a factor in this game, we are trying to eliminate it with two rounds.
  7. Points System:
    1. The final team position will award a team:
           2 x (N - (n-1)) points
      N is number of teams in the lobby
      n is the team's position

      Ex: A team got 2nd place in a lobby with 20 teams.
      This team will get:

        2 x (20 - (2-1)) points
      = 2 x (19) points
      = 38 points.
    2. Each kill a player gets adds 2 points to the team.

    The total points after the two rounds will be added and the top select teams will be considered as qualified.
  8. The final round will not be based on the points system. The team that gets the Chicken Dinner will have won the Tournament.
  9. Maps:
        Round-1: Erangel
        Round-2: Popularity Vote - Each Team gets one vote for any of the 4 maps

        Final: Erangel
  10. Since Round-2 has a popularity vote for the map, all players must have all the 4 maps downloaded. If this is not possible, organizers must be informed before the vote begins.
  11. In case of any dispute, the organizers of PointBlanc have the final word and decision.
