How are FIFA 19 points and rankings allocated?
Registration for FIFA 19's Global Series began on October 5, 2018 and ended on October 31, 2018.
FIFA 19 players who are eligible to play and want to be ranked in the Global Series should complete the following steps:
- Play in FIFA 19 Weekend League and complete at least 27 Wins to become FUT Champions Verified. Once an eligible player has confirmed their Verified status, they are permanently Verified – and will no longer have to worry about winning a certain amount of games in the Weekend League again.
- FUT Champions Verified players may then be invited to play in Online qualification competitions, where competitors will compete head-to-head against other eligible players to win a spot at a live event. After a player has been FUT Champions Verified, they will be able to be invited to Online qualification competitions for FUT Champions Cups and Licensed Qualifying Events throughout the season. Each Live Event will have a cut-off date for which players must be FUT Champions Verified in order to be allowed to compete. Each live event will have numerous Online Qualification Tournaments for different gameplay regions, which will then create for regular global qualification opportunities.
- FIFA 19 Global Series points won through Live Events and the Weekend League will place players on the leaderboard. For players to be able to qualify for the FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs, they will need to earn FIFA 19 Global Series Points through participating in Live Events or playing in the Weekend League. The most points are won through Live Events, though a smaller number of points can be earned by achieving 20 to 27+ wins in Weekend Leagues to taking place until April.
- Players qualify for the Playoffs by finishing in the Top 60 on the Points leaderboard, tallied at the end of the year. The top 60 eligible players on each Playstation and Xbox leaderboards will subsequently be invited to participate in the FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs. After the Playoffs – which will award Points – the top 16 players on both platforms will qualify for the FIFA eWorld Cup, where the FIFA 19 World Champion will be named.
In terms of point allocations , finishing first in either FUT Champions Cups or FIFA Majors will earn a player 1500 points; second place in both competitions will award the player 850 points; then 645 points for third to fourth place; fifth to eighth garner 450 points; ninth and below 275 points.
For players competing in licensed qualifying events and official league partner competitions, first-placed finishes award 850 points; second place 450 points; third place 315 points; fifth to eighth place 150 points, and ninth and beyond 110 points.
