League points are awarded based on the final rankings after each tournament, the League Champion for each year will be the fencer who has accumulated the greatest number of league points across the four tournaments. Each leg of the League is encouraged to use a different ruleset with regards to scoring. This keeps each event distinct, but also helps ensure the League results give a good overall measure of fencing ability rather than the ability to fence well under a single ruleset.
Rankings are based on the number of individuals, so if five people are ahead of you, you rank 6th, even if the two above you are joint fourth.
The league point system rewards consistent attendance as well as good fencing, and the points awarded are based on the number of fencers competing in each tournament, with more points for tournaments of over 20 fencers. No lower than 2 points are awarded for finishing a tournament, and 1 point for competing but having to withdraw if no higher points value is scored. This means doing well but not winning in a large tournament can potentially count as much as placing first a small tournament.
