Abstract: The TrackMania Grand League (TMGL) - the major Trackmania tournament hosted by Nadeo - has received criticism on its format since its very first edition. Instead of making subjective statements based on feelings, this document proposes a mathematical approach to the understanding of TMGL's format. Using rigorous statistical tools, this paper evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the TMGL point distribution system from an ethical perspective of fairness.
