FWIW, I was not involved in the rankings.

show: Ranks by chap

i would love to know why is TNC in front of us? we kind of destroyed them in clan war...

anyhow, this is my list, in original form, the way it was sent to BG.

TNC ahead of you... It's just a perception thing. I don't know everyone's war history and don't keep up with that enough to give a good ranking. That's why I said originally that I didn't want to be involved with the ranking, because I didn't know enough information. I honestly believe that TNC is better than some of their performances show, so I ranked them higher. Probably higher than most people did.

Hopefully our back-to-back wins in 2013 over TNC and TFFS give G1 a few more votes in the next poll. After taking a break from wars in most of 2011/2012, we're coming back with a vengeance with some solid new blood. Just started another war with HH this week.

You might look at these and ask why TOFU is below AOC, but looking at the results... AOC has been to 2 Clan League finals in a row. TOFU has been to none. While TOFU has a lead on KORT right now the war is not over yet. TOFU has yet to make the finals of any major event. TOFU also got trashed by Empire in CC 2. I know this is about now, but AOC is slightly ahead right now in my opinion.


This is why I always had a problem with Blitz and his poll coz he habitually ranked the then undefeated TOFU lower than they deserved (obviously felt threatened). Same has happened here, evident by the fact Bruce even feels the need to explain himself! TOFU has lost just one challenge in its history (at a time it was without leadership), it has beaten KORT every time in their two challenges, it has the leading overall Won/Lost stats of any clan and is now about to contest the CC3 Final. We've also met AOC twice, beating them in the CLA2 Final and 26-15 in a challenge. Some people obviously let their hearts (or self-interest) rule their heads or simply don't do their homework very well.

And BG - it would have been courteous to send a PM to those you asked for rankings to direct them to this thread (which I've only just seen). When I PM'd you a week after submitting Tofu's list you told me insufficient replies had been received and that this wasn't going to be done.

Please note the date on my list posted. My list would be different now than it was then. I stand by my list then and still stand by it.(About the time it was written) My placing of TOFU was not from my heart, but with a common sense approach. That could be said for anybody I ranked on this list or did not rank. I took what was in my PM to BG and copied it out and posted here.

How would it be different? Would we be even lower? lol. On the basis we had a 13-7 lead over you at the time and were forecast to lead 24-12 with the games in progress I'd have thought a 31-29 result was a positive slump for us in March. So I can't imagine how your perception would change between then and now - at least not one to put us in a more favourable light. If in your opinion we are ranked lower than AOC yet we beat you, where does that put you?

Or maybe posting your opinion was simply a tactless thing to do unless you wished to draw criticism?

A coaches' poll is supposed to reflect ability above anything else - past results are secondary in the calculation - much like seedings as opposed to world rankings. The F400 takes care of performance-based rankings whereas the coaches' poll is meant to determine perceived strength (if Clan X met Clan Y tomorrow who would win?). That's why there should be discrepancies between the two, much like AOC/Empire's new clan being relegated on the F400 yet which should be higher (logically) on the coaches' poll.

Rant over

p.s. we ranked you higher

Well if it stood right now. It would be

1. KORT
2. TOFU
3. AFOS
4. PACK
... Etc etc etc

I would still say the whole body of work that KORT has done puts them slightly over TOFU right now. I am not saying you will not overtake KORT, but as of right now that is how I would have it. It is just like when we first beat THOTA. Nobody had us at the number 1 spot right away. We had to keep winning to get that spot.

So AOC don't even figure in your Top 4 anymore despite bringing onboard a lot of Empire talent? As I mentioned in my previous post, I think you put too much stock in historical results and not on potential which creates a distorted view. And despite our unblemished record vs Kort & AoC we still don't fare better, so even on historical data it seems warped.

We've gone 7-17 vs you guys in March and lost to a couple of clans in the Random League in the same period yet we've moved up a place on your current table. Cheers!

The new AOC/ Empire clan is going to be good, but this poll cannot include someone who has not played a single game as a clan or team. I can count countless times in history where teams were supposed to he great only to flop. I do not think AOC / Empire will be one of those, but there is no way to know exactly where they will fall.

But they have played games as a clan - just under another name. You can't be saying the new AOC/Empire clan won't be included on the Coaches Poll too (as well as losing their standing on the F400)? Or are you?

I must say it is hugely amusing that you feel the need to defend the ranking. 'nuff said!

On a lighter note, OSA should probably be #1 :D ;) 8-)

#1 OSA
#2 BoFM*

And by BoFM i mean that when the possibility to play team games by yourself, ie play several positions in your own team becomes available, Bogan shall return to us, reunite with Gallant, and they WILL annihilate us all. Nuff said. (OSA will still be #1 though despite being annihilated.) No need to more members, Just hand Bogan a pitcher of sangria, put him on skype with Gallant, and pit them alone against your clan in a 60 game challenge, and prepare to be penetrated. (I reserve the right to put anon' back in this imaginary super-BoFM for amusement purposes, as well as conquest map pwnage ofc.)

I have spoken.

Much as sometimes you have a lot of good things to say Chariot, you can't really attack Bruce for sprouting his Opinion. He's in Kort, you're in Tofu, chances are you won't agree anyway.

If he thinks that way, it's his prerogative with the way this poll works, just as I voted Empire as 1st because of an element of Bias on my part, but also because I didn't think there was an obvious replacement clan I'd call better than us.

I also put reasoning for where else I placed other clans, but I hope I don't have to defend my opinion as well?

Do you make your opinion public and therefore subject to the scrutiny of others? No, thought not.

And I'm not too sure why you've quoted that paragraph of mine. I was querying whether your (new) clan will be included in the Coaches' Poll, as according to Bruce it will not. So it's not a matter of opinion, as you say, but more a case of fact.

p.s. If you show bias in your judgment, as you've admitted, then you really shouldn't be invited to do this exercise again.
