Just want to make sure everything is clear before the first lightning round starts (in a couple of days):
1) Still about the point raised by PaulJefferys, the first two paragraphs below, taken from MM rules, seem contradictory with the third one:
"After each Online Round, up to 30 of the nexthighest scoring competitors [among those eligible, who have not already otherwise advanced] will be awarded points based on the following table." "After each Lightning Online Round, up to 10 of the highest scoring competitors [among those eligible] will be awarded points based on the following table." "The top 50 competitors from each round will earn at least 1 point."
2) Another question is about online round winner. As he/she will advance, from the paragraph below I understand he/she won't receive any points. For example, in the first round, the winner will advance and then the second place will get 100 points, the third 75, and so on. Is this correct? Or will the round winner will get 100 point and then advance? In which case, the second place would get 75 points, and so on.
"After each Online Round, up to 30 of the nexthighest scoring competitors [among those eligible, who have not already otherwise advanced] will be awarded points based on the following table." 3) For the following rounds, if someone who previously won a round competes, he/she will get no points and will be "skipped" for point distribution, right?
