All points awarded by officially sanctioned tournaments (past till now) are valid for the determination of the Top 16 Players. In order to facilitate a clearer distinction of the top 16 players of the league, TCG has organised a number of tournaments leading up to AFA’09.

This is the schedule of tournaments coming up leading to the event at AFA:

- TCG October Shop Tournament Day A: 10th October 2009 (FULL)

- AFA World Grand Prix Leadup Tournament Day C: (TBC) (16 Players, point/event number restrictions)

All AFA World Grand Prix Leadup Tournaments and the AFA World Grand Prix Tournament  formats are Neo-standard (1 series only)

For a better understanding of the system, Point Calculation is as follows:

Base Points + Position Points + Event Points

Base Points are calculated by the number of points attained during Preliminary rounds of any tournament. Each Win in a preliminaryround is given 3 points, Draw 1 point and Lose 0 point.

Position Points are bonus points given to the player based on his finishing position.

Position Points are tabulated below for 32 Players:

Position
5th – 8th Place 4th Place 3rd Place 2nd Place Champion
Additional Points 3 4 6 8 10

Position Points are tabulated below for 16 and below players:

Position
5th – 8th Place 4th Place 3rd Place 2nd Place Champion
Additional Points - 2 3 4 5

Lastly, Event Points are bonus points that tournament participants will obtain just by participating in tournaments that are held during events (e.g A.C.M.E).

Information regarding the November events will be released in the coming weeks so stay tuned.

EDIT: Note to those who complain older players have the advantage: There has only been 4 tournaments organised so far (2 with event points) and there are 2 additional events (Phantom TD, AFA Leadup Day C) planned for players below certain points or have participated in less than certain number of events for newer players to catch up. Table for player ranking and points will be up after we conclude the October shop tournament. This is the current table of rankings:
