What are tournament points and what are they used for? I've searched all over this site for the answer and all I have found is how they are calculated. Is there a use for them? If not now, will there be a use for them in the future?
I think it's only to tell how active a tourney player is... much like the member points. I have 91, you have 11, therefore I tend to post more things... hope I helped. I really think thats it, maybe message erik?
No, they are two different things, tournament points are how well you have done in all the competitions you have played in.
Member points are how active you are.
And there's no use for either of them-just bragging rights :)
