Change: Definition of Major Title

Periodically, the FPA Board clarifies the set of tournaments that are considered Major Titles. The main change for 2010 reflect the FPA Board's most recent determination.

The FPA currently acknowledges several tournaments as major titles.  Beginning in 2010, the only tournament recognized as a "major title" is the FPA World Championships (FPAW). This change specifically affects the WFDF Overall Championships and the US Open Overall Championships. Beginning in 2010, neither will be considered "major titles" for freestyle.

For the purposes of the rankings, this eliminates the use of the WFDF/US Open points level. The WFDF Overall Championships and the US Open Overall Championships will receive points from the Regular designation, depending on freestyle participation in the tournament.

The European Freestyle Championships as a continental championship and Paganello will continue to receive points from the Pro category.

The point scales to be used from January 2010 are listed below.

Every tournament uses the Regular point scales unless categorized differently by the FPA Board. A Regular tournament needs at least twenty total entrants to receive 100% of its points. Other point scales are proportionally higher or lower based on their impact/importance.

Regular tournaments with 15-19 competitors are worth 80% of the base scale. Regular tournaments with 10-14 entrants are worth 65% of the base scale. Regular tournaments with 4-9 competitors are worth 50% of the base scale.

Pro tournaments (non-European and non-North American national championships plus other designated events like Paganello) are worth 120% of the base scale.

For all tournaments except the FPA, all open divisions share the allocated points. For instance, if a tournament hosts both pairs and co-op competitions, pairs receives 50% of the points and co-op the other 50%, and bonus points are similarly allocated. Points for pairs would be added to points for co-op to arrive at a player's ranking points for the tournament. Open ranking points are only awarded for open division categories. Open rankings bonus points only are awarded for womens and mixed pairs categories.

Each division of the FPA Worlds is worth 160% of the base scale. Each division of the FPA Worlds is counted as a separate event toward the freestyle flying disc rankings.
