Stats count towards final scoring of your team(s) in the leauge. There are certain point values for different things.
Seeding ranking position, Final ranking position, Awards, and what not all have points assigned ot them designated by the founder of the FF league.
Anyone can make a league, so long as they clearly define the rules and how many people can participate and then do the scoring at the end of it.
No, points are not based on the scouting database. (Which one in particular do you mean btw?) That is for team use only, and can be used for reference to choose your teams in the league, but is not a factor in FF whatsoever. Awards at events, and final placements in seeding and finals are the most used.
For example, in the FF league for the Championship event this year, the highest scores were given to the Chairman’s Award winning team, and the Championship Event Competition Winners.
Speaking of myself and my random team assignment of team 67 for that event, they (67) not only won the Chairman’s Award, but won the Event as well with two othr teams, so I ended up winning the FF event. (High points for FF from Chairman’s and high points from event win.)
It won’t always happen that way, but the points system determines who wins by point values for Awards and Event placement in the rankings.
I just got lucky… Real lucky. w00t Team 67.
