Deneb Run Championship

From Vendetta Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Deneb Run Championship is a meta-competition based solely on the outcome of official Deneb Run races, to determine the Champion based on aggregate results. The Championship will run for many races. For example, the First Championship covers 50 races (D.R. 101 --> D.R. 150 inclusive).

Only official Deneb Runs are counted; and the official results as published on VO forum stands (or, failing that, the official results as broadcast by the official race MC in ingame chat). Foo Fighter will track and manage the league table, and he will also adjudicate in case of any ambiguity or uncertainty. Foo Fighter's decision (as pertains to the Championship) is final (the no-bitching clause).

The Championship, started with countback of results back to Deneb Run 101.

Anyone who races in Deneb Run qualifies, no entrance is necessary.

A prize will be awarded the winner: the Championship cup, and Prize money. This currently stands at $62M (of which $55M for 1st prize, the remainder $7M for runners-up) thanks to our generous sponsors: Foo Fighter / [ITAN], Cranston Gorky [ITG], Hortan [SSC], Jestatis Bess [ONE1], and [CLM] - Mystic Rogue.

It may also in future be possible to Bet on the Championship (enquire with the Betting Shop).


Points are awarded each race as follows:

Position Points
1st 10
2nd 6
3rd 4
>= 4 1 ... a consolation point for finishing outside the podium

The Deneb Run Championship is being tracked and managed separately from the Deneb Run official MCs (with their permission but without them having any responsibility for it).

Double points may be awarded for particularly special / unique DR races run by DR MCs (as DR-100 was); in which case this will be announced in advance. For example the Season Finale, DR150, should qualify for double points.
