As you know, last week, we launched the first BFG Championship.
Our objective was to offer a new leaderboard for a limited time and to reward top players.
Unfortunately, as some of you may have noticed, a technical issue affected the rankings, preventing users from competing fairly: The ELO ranking - which is used to help players find a worthy opponent in a balanced match- wasn't reset at the opening of the championship, keeping the old profiles' rankings.
This resulted in a massive gap between ranks, causing some users to be ranked in the top 10 with only a few matches played.
Now that this has come to our attention, we'd rather temporarily close the championship to address the issue and then restart fresh.
The Championship V2 will start today, July the 10th at 6 PM CEST and will close July the 24th at 6 PM CEST. Prize awarding and rules remain unchanged.
IMPORTANT: To access the championship, you'll need to restart the game. If you don't, you'll remain in the previous leaderboard with your previous profiles.
We apologise for the inconvenience and delay and wish you good luck in the tournament - thank you again for your enthusiasm and commitment to the game!
