How are points calculated?
Tournament points are calculated by two formulas: one if you're on the winning team and one if you're on a losing team. They are:
Points = [1000 + (100*kills) + (25*assists) – (80*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)]
Minimum = 200, Max = 6000
For Example: 10 kills, 5 deaths, 3 assists, party size 3, wins the match = 1005 tournament points
Points = [100 + (10*kills) + (2.5*assists) – (8*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)]
Minimum = 100, Max = 500
For example: 10 kills, 5 deaths, 3 assists, party size 3, player loses the match = 118.5 tournament points
Keep in mind that more Tournament points can be earned with smaller party size. Larger party sizes will yield less Tournament points.
How do I know how I'm doing?
At the end of each week you'll be placed into one of four Tournament tiers based on the total points you earned
Platinum – earn at least 23,500 Tournament Points
Gold – earn at least 18,500 Tournament Points
Silver— earn at least 13,500 Tournament Points
Bronze—earn at least 8,500 Tournament Points
NOTE: if you see only 3 tiers we aren't liars, we just haven't been able to push the Platinum tier live yet. The framework is there. It will be soon.
For more information
about the tiers in the Records section of your Uncharted 3 Profile
on in-game menu. You can also check the Tournament leaderboards in-game
or via the multiplayer stat page on the Naughty Dog website
What are the rewards for playing in the tournament?
There will be four reward tiers for the Tournament: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze. Each tier has its own unique set of prizes. Check the Tiers section under the Tournament section to see what each tier will unlock for that week.
How long do I keep my rewards for?
Each Tournament tier unlocks a variety of custom weapons or custom characters parts that you'll be able to use for the duration of the next Tournament week.
For instance, if you unlock the Shade Belling Mask, Shade Headphones, and Shade Gas Mask in week 1 you'll be able to equip those parts all week during the week 2 Tournament. So flaunt it while you've got it and keep playing to keep it.
Some items you'll be able to keep indefinitely. For example, if you manage to unlock the Gold tier 6 times in a row, you'll unlock the Djinn Skin permanently.
Can I join a match late and still earn tournament points?
No, you can't join late into a match which you elect to wager a ticket.
How did she?! Where did he come from?!? What was that?!? @#$@#% this game!
Quitting, signing out of PSN, pulling the cable or powering down results in the ticket you used in that Tournament being forfeited. If your connection drops, you will forfeit a ticket. There is no way to replace the lost ticket. So play fair, focus that rage elsewhere and be mindful of shenanigans!
