RP, TP, Leagues and ILT's

FIRST Tech Challenge event teams score two kinds of points: RP (Ranking Points): 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie and 0 points for a loss TP (Tiebreak points): The pre-penalty score of the losing alliance in each match. Both winning and losing alliances earn the same TP from a match while RP differs. RP determines which four will, after qualifying matches, be captains in alliance selection. When there is a tie in RP, TP is used as a tiebreaker. Each team in the Los Angeles region may play up to 15 league matches. Of those, your top ten scores — RP first and then TP — will carry over to your team’s ILT. Whatever RP and TP your team then earns at the ILT will be added to your league top ten. Those totals will determine which teams act as alliance captains at your ILT.]]>
