Rules > Awarded points

For the overall score, points are awarded in every discipline to the best 30 teams that received credits. The champion of a discipline collects 100 points. The exact distribution of points:

Place 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
Points 100 90 80 70 63 60 57 54 51 48 45 42 39 36 33

 

 

Place 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
Points 30 27 24 21 18 15 12 10 8 6 5 4 3 2 1

 

 

The team which is able to collect the highest number of points in all 5 disciplines will win the BOINC Pentathlon. This also means that the champion may get a maximum number of 500 points.

In case of a tie in the overall score, the tied teams are ranked by their head-to-head comparison. Hence the team which is placed better than the other teams in more disciplines is ranked higher.

Of course, also the champions of the single disciplines are being honored. Therefore teams have the possibility to reach for the pedestal in a single discipline if they don't see a chance for themselves to succeed in the overall placings. In the end, they are being honored as well.
