At the end of each game, each player will be awarded a number of points corresponding to their final placement in the lobby, as outlined in the points table attached.

In some cases in a game of Hearthstone Battlegrounds, multiple players are eliminated from the game at the same time. In those cases, a player would be awarded a number of points equal to the sum total of all the points earned by the players who were just eliminated divided by the number of players who were just eliminated. For example, if after a fight, the 4th and 5th place finishers were eliminated at the same time, both players would earn (4+3) points/2 = 3.5 points each).
