This is a forum where people can share their total points in the Mario Tennis Online Tournament. If you are one of the top 4 players in the UK, Nintendo UK will send you a free copy of the full game on release!

I think it should’ve been called ‘how many tournaments you win’.

The game also says it'll take win ratio, number of games, and number of disconnections into account when calculating rankings, which is good, as going for points alone mainly rewards the most obsessive players rather than the most skilled. I've got no idea how the algorithm is going to work though.

Anyway, I saw the Top 4 players thing and have naively chased it, completely unaware of how attainable it really is (again, it would be useful to have some sort of idea how the rankings are actually calculated).

I've been spurred on by the idea of free games, and am currently sitting on 17,536 points, 15 tournament wins, 78 wins and 7 losses. I really wish I knew how far we're supposed to keep pushing though! I feel I've been obsessive enough as it is!

@Maxz I saw a guy this morning with 38,000. Maybe you should keep pushing

Koolimpah!

@Maxz I'd guess the reason the rankings aren't visible is because the prizes are significant. Outside of the people with very common usernames like real first names, with visible rankings you'd be able to identify high ranking players and purposely avoid playing with them.

I've only played a grand total of 8 tournaments, and I won on my fifth one when it was my first time playing as Waluigi. Haven't played as much as I'd like because I need to study for exams but I've enjoyed it. I have played 21 matches with 10 wins and 11 loses with a total score of 1591 points.

@Tingle_The_Great Managed to beat a guy with 38000 points this morning, which was satisfying:

Whenever I see a player with a higher score than me I just quietly hope they don't live in the UK! But yeah, still a lot of pushing left to go, by the looks of it. Probably an implausible amount. Still, the tables will show more than just the Top 4, so there might be a chance for a bit of minor fame and glory even if there's no prize involved.

@Maxz How long have you been playing to get almost 20,000 points? I haven't got over 2,000!

@Maxz He lost and got 170 points? I don't even get that for winning!

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I can safely say that points DO NOT indicate how good a player is, just how much they've been playing. I've had plenty of challenging games against players with low scores and vice versa.

@Matthew010 The short answer is "too much", or alternatively "much longer that I would have otherwise if I didn't know there was this stupid competition happening that I probably won't get near to winning anyway".

The more concrete (and useful) answer is 97 matches. But obviously, more wins results in more points, and winning a tournament starts you off in round 2 of the next tournament, which puts you one closer to the final (and the points it brings). So this accelerates the process.

But yeah, I don't encourage anyone else to go for stupid scores unless they really want to. If points do end up being the deciding factor, this whole tournament is basically a test of 'who left the house the least that weekend'. Which I'm not sure is all that worthy of rewarding.
