A post-match window will be displayed for you at the end of each supported match mode, and will allow you to review the points earned for events in that match:



An additional way to earn points is by completing the tasks that are featured in the "Free points" tab:



Tasks can include:

  • Sharing a video to Twitter with Outplayed or Fuze.tv with the hashtag #2020alienwaregames (once every 24h):
    *The video must be captured by these apps only!


  • Connecting your Alienware Arena account 
  • Completing a survey - Complete a quick survey to earn 500 points, which will be added to all four games' leaderboards that week (=2000 points in the All-time leaderboard). Please note that the survey will become available to you four days after joining the app!


Notifications

  • Why am I seeing notifications in-game?
    There are two types of in-game notifications:
    • The "Game Is On" notification, which will inform you that the game mode you're currently playing is eligible for points collection:
    • The "+X Points" notification which will inform you that your action in-game (a kill, for example) has earned you a certain amount of points:

           The notifications will be shown for two seconds and then disappear.

           

           FACEIT may prevent the challenge's in-game notifications from showing up. Please make

           sure to turn FACEIT off before launching one of the supported games.

  • Why am I seeing an error notification on the app's top bar?


    This notification is meant to inform you that there's a current error. Hover over it to learn more.
