Competitions and Contests

What is a Competition in CompetitionLabs?

A Competition is a collection of Contests, or Tournament players can participate in. To compete, a player needs to earn points, with top-ranked players receiving rewards or prizes. Competitions can include as many or as few Contests and rounds as required. Contests can be configured to allow entrants to progress between multiple rounds.
