For the Rookie Challenge Contest and monthly ASR league exist an own scoring system, independently from personal rank.

Each player can challenge an opponent maximum two times. The points awarded for a win depend on whether it is the first or second win against an opponent.  For the ASR league the points are reset to zero (0) at the beginning of each month.

1 win = 2 points ( blue-dot-0 )
2 wins against same opponent = 3.5 points ( blue-dot-0 blue-dot-0 )
1 loss = 0.75 points ( blue-dot-1 )
2 losses against same opponent = 1.5 points ( blue-dot-1 blue-dot-1 )
1 win + 1 loss against same opponent = 2.75 points ( blue-dot-0 blue-dot-1 )

All players and game results are listed in following tables:
