Blokranking: Live the break!

Daily study breaks with the Knorr Blokranking!

A big batch of our users are students. Tons of those students have just started or are already busy studying for their upcoming finals. But remember, students, you also need a break during those intense moments of studying. This is why Kayzr & Knorr partnered up to develop a whole new concept to help you conquer your exams with a daily gaming break of maximum one hour! Everyone wins (as usual ;) ) but the teams and players leading the ranks at the end will receive an extra reward right on top of it, brought to you by Knorr.

Daily tournament

The Knorr Blokranking is a daily tournament, split up in 4 games: League of Legends (5v5), CS:GO (5v5), Hearthstone (1v1) and Rocket League (3v3). Every day, a check-in will open at 19.30h, players or teams then have 1 hour to check in, until 20.30h. At 20.30h, every checked in player or team will be matched against an opponent, against whom they will play ONE MATCH. Exactly the right time you might need to relax and take a break from studying. The first Knorr Blokranking matches will be played on Monday the 5th of June, 2017! The Blokranking will end on Saturday, the 1st of July.

The Knorr Blokranking of your game will only take place on the days that there is no official Kayzr main mode tournament of that game (Community Voted tournaments don't count here). Players are allowed to participate in Knorr Blokrankings of different games, although they can still only play one game per evening.

A seperate rating

Winning or losing will grant you Blokranking rating, this is a whole separate rating and has nothing to do with your regular Kayzr rating. Every day you will be matched against an opponent with the same Blokranking rating of the game you're playing. We'll be working with an ELO system where every player starts at 1500.

When you play with a team, we will only look at the rating of your TEAM, and not the individual rating of every player, making it different than the usual Kayzr team rating approach. This means that if you play with line-up (A, B, C, D, E) on Monday, and swap to (F, G, H, I, J) on Friday, that FGHIJ will play with the rating of the team and not with the average rating of the individuals.

Win, win, win!

Next to earning rating, every team or player that wins their game of the day, will receive a significant coin reward. At the end, the teams ranked highest of each game will be rewarded with a noticable amount of coins and an extra reward on top of their previously gathered coins, all provided by Knorr Snackpot.

On a sidenote, make sure that gaming doesn't interfere for too long with your studying. Who knows that maybe your exam results might influence your reward in the end? But that's just another part of the puzzle. Make sure to check this thread on a frequent base in the upcoming week. We'll be updating it a few times.

Q&A:

How will my team's rating be calculated for these matches?
When you play with a team, we will only look at the rating of your TEAM, and not the individual rating of every player, this is different than the usual Kayzr team rating approach. This means that if you play with line-up (A, B, C, D, E) on Monday, and swap to (F, G, H, I, J) on Friday, that FGHIJ will play with the rating of the team and not with the average rating of the individuals.

What happens when there is an uneven number of checked in players/teams?
We'll have to dissapoint at least one person or one team at that moment. The person or team checked in the last, will not be eligible to play and win or lose rating. If there's an even numbers of player, every checked in individual or team will be eligible to play.

Is it only a check in or do I have to sign up beforehand?
All you have to do is check in for your game. These check ins will open 1 hour before the tournament start. There will be no sign ups for the Knorr Blokranking. If you miss the check in, you won't be eligible to participate, we cannot undo this.
