Tournament scores pls help

We are having a healthy debate.
Do participants bounus points still count towards the alliances tournament scores or is it only the top 50 players now ?
“If an alliance has 45 members, but has 20 other members join one at a time and do 10 takedowns for the AC, do all 20 of their takedown bonuses count?”

as long as players havent begun tourny and come in your alli your alli can get the 1000 bonus points from these players.

But thought it was only top 50 scores which count

who said that?
Doesnt have to do anything if you are top 50 or not

Top 50 scores in the alliance for the month Ludia at some point.
