Scoring Method

1. Quest Match

Each judge will give a score from 1 to 5.

Each judge gives each participant a score of maximum 10. For each participant, the score from all judges are summed, then cut by a half of the highest score and a half of the lowest score. The sum-reduced score will be used for the ranking.

Organiser also gives scores to the participants. If any judge joined the match, the score for the judge is replaced: if the judge gets rank X according to Kuromaku's score, the judge gets a score of rank X among his/her scores to other participants.

Rewards

All participants will be given 2000 gold and the “Competitor” achievement.

Winners from all groups will be given the “Gold Chart” achievement.

The top 3 of the Formal Group and the winner of the Guest Group will earn a bye to the Formal Group in the next Marlo Cup contest.

Participants who advanced from Quest Match and who get 24 point or higher in The Guest Group will get the invite codes.
