The BPtrivia Championship Series (or “BPCS”) is a Monthly Trivia League.

### Format

Each day of the BPCS consists of 7 trivia questions of varying difficulty. Quizzes run **Monday through Friday **on the **first three weeks of every month**,** **beginning on the first Monday of the month**.** Each set of 3-week quizzes is called a **Split.**

Quizzes will be graded **within 12 hours **of their time of closing. After the first quiz, **quizzes will open subsequently, only after the previous quiz has been graded and scored.**

### Scoring

Each question’s value is determined by its difficulty: the three easiest questions are worth 100 points each, the next three easiest are worth 200 points each, and the hardest question is worth 300 points. Difficulty is calculated **retroactively. **For example, the question that received the *least *correct answers will be worth 300 points. If there are any ties in difficulty, a question will be selected at random to be considered "more difficult."

Additionally, each player receives a **doubler **for each match; you’ll assign your doubler to a question in the quiz, and you will receive **double** points for that question if you get it correct. If you assign your doubler to a question that you get incorrect, you’ll be awarded no points for that question.

Each match day of the BPCS will be worth a maximum 1500 points. You’ll earn 1500 points if you get every question correct and you correctly assign your doubler to the set’s most valuable question (i.e. the most difficult question).

### How The Championship Series Works

After each match day, you’ll earn ranking points based on your performance. Each player begins in **one of three colored Alpha Columns**: Alpha Red, Alpha Blue, or Alpha Green. The colors are basically ignorable; they are only there to spread out the players and allow more players to move up and down each Split. Your **Column Badge **is visible on the **BPCS Dashboard**, and you'll be able to find your name on your Column's respective leaderboard.

At the end of each month's Split, **the top 20% of players **in each Column will climb to the next level, while **the bottom 20% of players **in each Column will move down to the previous level (Alpha players will remain in Alpha if they do not move up). If you do not participate in any match day during a given month's Split, you will remain in the most recent column you played in upon your return.

The top players in each of our **three Omega Columns **will be the **Split Champions **for that month. Those Champions will move into the **Champions Column **and will participate in an **End-of-the-Year live BPCS Finals **(The BP Championship, if you will). All players who tie for 1st in a given month's Split will all qualify for the BP Championship.

Play as many days as you can to earn points and see just how far you can climb the BPCS column ranks. Good luck!
