shouldn't it go by winning percentages and not wins as we have played less games :?:


think about it, how can we be half a point back with a 70% win rate :?


the system is flawed or you made a mistake, we played 9 less games and all we have to do it win about 50% or 5 of 9 and be tied for 1st? again, this cant be right mathmatically if you go by winning % and stat odds.

The system is not flawed if it was intentionally designed to rank clans according to total wins. Some rankings use winning percentage, others use total wins. Just because you want to be on top doesn't mean the system is flawed, Blitzaholic.

it is not that I want to be on top, it is a matter of prinicple and understanding, i am confused :?

we played 9 games less than 1st place and if we won 5 and lost 4 we would be tied???????

makes no sense as winning 5 and losing 4 is not that good really, but just a wince above average, yet , according to this, if we do that, we tied for 1st? doesnt that seem odd?

and 3rd place team says 11-8 and only 1 game back???????
it should be more than 1 game back from 12-7, say the 12-7 team lost, and is now 12-8, that is 1 game, but still better than 11-8, so it should be at least 1.5 from the 12-7 record
and 11-8 would be even more back then a 7-3 record.

Uses the same calculation as American Baseball. Done because not all clans play every week. Hence an early bye week would compromise total wins.

Think about it this way then.

ID is 5 games over .500
THOTA is only 4 games over .500

Would a clan who currently sits at 1-0 be top spot? (rhetorical question)

You can rectify the situation in your current matchup. Let your games do the talking.

Why don't you just finish your games and then we'll be able to see who is really in first. This is just a temp scoreboard anyways.

Oh, and just FYI -- GB = ((WinsA-WinsB) + (LossesB-LossesA)) / 2

Thus.. you are

((12-7) + (3-7) ) / 2

( (5) + (-4) ) /2

(1) / (2)

= .5 games back

12-7 to 12-8 is only a move of a .5 game.

ID can join as slowly as they like, I am watching the games though.

12-7 vs 11-8, if the second team wins, being 1 back is now even. 12-8 and 12-8. It's only a full game if the teams are playing each other.

The third place team = (12 - 11) + (8 - 7) / 2

(1) + (1) /2

=2/2
= 1 game back.


Games, assuming you have played equal games, is all based off of the loss column.

Thus, if team one was 10-5 and team two was 11-4, team two would be 1 game back because that's the difference in the loss column.

It's just math.

Nice and clear knight. Not a big fan of baseball, but the questions are good. Keep winning at 70% and I'm sure your clan will do just fine Blitz.

oh, ok, thanks

makes more sense now, it is a half a point, not a point



I was getting confused
that 12-7
and 11-8 only 1 game back?
i was thinking, huh? if dragoons played a game and lost, that is a game, but they would be 12-8 which is better than 11-8 and 0.5 points ahead still, which is right, but the game played was played, yet, they lose lets say, but are still ahead, but if the other team was 1 back, and 1st places loses, see my dilemma, I was over thinking it, i get it now, it would be half a point

but, I see what you are saying now, forget it, i am driving myself mad :lol:

I get IT :idea: yippee =D>

All of the ID vs THOTA games have been filled since yesterday and they were sent late last Sunday to us. Let's not exacerbate unnecessarily.
