See below for a detailed explanation on how teams earn points.
How teams earn points
Scoring in A Step Ahead: Holiday Hustle is team-based, so while individual contributions are important, points are awarded at the team level, meaning that having a coordinated effort will result in the best scoring. Teams score points in three ways:
Just like team movement is calculated based upon the average of the team’s steps, so too are points. Teams receive 1 point for each team-average step they get.
Players fill up their 5 Fame stars each week through a mixture of healthy activities that includes steps, diet, lifestyle, and exercise/UtiliFIT. The stars fill up individually, with one star, each, for Steps, Diet, and Lifestyle, and two stars for Exercise/UtiliFIT. Players can fill up their stars by logging activities in the matching categories in their Activity Journal, with UtiliFIT deskercise mini-games also helping to fill up the Exercise/UtiliFIT stars.
The Fame Bonus is awarded weekly at the team level, using the average of the entire team’s Fame for the current region, which ranges from 0-5. The bonus points available are:
5 Stars = 10,000 points
4 Stars = 8,000 points
3 Stars = 6,000 points
2 Stars = 4,000 points
1 Star = 2,000 points
Less than 1 Star = No Bonus Points :(
