DCL23 Super Final AlUla: A Grueling Format and a Rewarding Point System

The Drone Champions League (DCL), the world's leading drone racing series, is set to conclude its exhilarating 2023 season with the Super Finals, held in the picturesque Al Ula, Saudi Arabia, on December 20th, 2023.

Get ready for an epic showdown as the DCL23 Super Final unfolds in the historic city of AlUla, Saudi Arabia. This grand spectacle will bring together the top four teams—Xblades Racing, Cyclone Drone Racing, Raiden Racing, and Quad Force One—as they battle it out for the coveted title of DCL Champion for Season 23.

A Format Designed to Test Skills and Strategy

The DCL Super Finals will adopt a meticulously crafted format that demands exceptional piloting skills and strategic thinking. To determine the ultimate champion, the top four teams will first engage in a grueling group stage, where they will compete against each other in a series of intense 2v2 and 4v4 races. Points will be accumulated throughout the group stage, determining the seeding positions for the subsequent elimination stage.

Group Stage: A Battle for Seeding

In the group stage, each team will race against every other team, showcasing their individual strengths and tactical prowess. The points system will reward consistent performance, with teams earning:

  • 4 points for a 1st place finish
  • 3 points for a 2nd place finish
  • 2 points for a 3rd place finish
  • 1 point for a 4th place finish

After each team has faced off against all other teams, the points will be tallied, and the teams will be ranked accordingly. The team with the highest point total will be seeded first, followed by the second-highest team, and so on. If there is a tie in points between two teams, the tiebreaker will be determined using the fastest time in their direct match-up.

Elimination Stage: A Fight to the Finish

The stakes will rise dramatically in the elimination stage, where teams will face off in a knockout format, with the losing team of each round being eliminated. The remaining teams will continue to battle until only one victor emerges, claiming the ultimate glory as DCL Champion.

A Point System that Rewards Consistency and Teamwork

The DCL Super Finals’ point system is designed to encourage consistent performance and emphasize teamwork. Throughout the group stage, teams will be rewarded for their overall performance, with each pilot’s contributions factoring into the team’s point total. This emphasis on teamwork will continue into the elimination stage, as the success of each team will hinge on the combined efforts of its pilots.

A Fitting Culmination to an Exceptional Season

The DCL Super Finals promises to be an unforgettable event, showcasing the pinnacle of drone racing skill and strategic brilliance.
