League Rules
<ML01> We will follow the competition rules of the latest Tipping Point Game Manual.
<ML02> To qualify for the finals, teams must compete on at least four league nights.
<ML03> We will attempt to schedule your team for as many nights as possible.
<ML04> Teams may request to compete on more nights. Teams with less than four nights completed will be given preference otherwise it’s based on first request.
<ML05> Schedule change requests must be submitted at least 24 hours before a league night.
<ML06> The plan is to have four of the nights will be reserved for middle school only. If you would like to request MS only nights then please contact a hosting EP. If you request MS only we will do our best to schedule as many events on the MS only nights but teams may still be added to blended events.

Skills
<ML07> Skills will be offered starting at event 8. Teams will be allowed a maximum of two drivers skills and two programming skills per league night. Additional runs may be offered if time permits at the discretion of the hosting event partner that night.

Finals Qualifications
<ML08> There will be separate finals event for both the middle and high school ages.
<ML09> The top 24 or top 30% of teams will be invited based on the combined ranking (by average win points/match) of all of the league nights as determined by the Vex Tournament Manager software.
<ML10> To qualify for the finals, teams are required to compete on at least four league nights.
<ML11> The finals will be scheduled across two nights (High School TBD and Middle School TBD). All league scores will be reset. The first night will have five qualification rounds, skills, and judging. The second night will have two qualification rounds, elimination alliance selection, elimination rounds, and awards.
