Top Cut is a single elimination bracket for everyone that gets 15+ points, or 5/6 rounds. So the amount needed to Top Cut will always remain the same.

- T8 - 5 Codes
Everyone else in the tournament will get points based on position.
There are no kickers, just points based on position. It was going to be points per win, but a specific point system is required to be applied across all tournaments in a series, so I'm going with a more diverse point spread to reward both placing and participation.
- 1st: 20 points
- 2nd: 15 points
- Top 4: 12 points
- Top 8: 10 points
- Top 16: 8 points
