Yes Blitz is obsessed with being #1....


But he's totally right here! Not sure about the baseball argument, doesn't the team with a better win % rank higher?

Whatever, it's funny to see Thota in second, even funnier that the Dragoons are in first! :lol:

Looks like Immortal Assassins might be the first clan to go 10-0 in any week. :D 1 game is being remade, as it was made a standard and nobody caught it. LOL But barring a loss there should be 10-0. :D

No. Baseball assumes 50/50 split. As was said, by your logic a team that is 1-0 would be in first place.

Right now, Dragoons have 5 more wins and 4 more losses than THOTA. Meaning THOTA should be a half game behind, as they are.

The standings are correct, but who cares? It only matters who is on top at the end. If THOTA is that concerned with their current place, perhaps they can finish off a few more games?

So baseball is the only sport that does it? All the other sports go by win % don't they?

Hockey uses a point system, so that's completely different.

Football is win %, but teams are never more than 1 game ahead of any other team, so it doesn't matter.

Basketball uses the same as baseball.

Really, I dont see this as a problem. Generally teams will have played the same amount of games, so the team that is in first WILL have the higher win percentage. But since this is just starting, the numbers will look screwy as clans come in and out of bye weeks while other clans play more games. It will settle at the end as the game count rises and there is more equality in amount of games finished for each clan. The clan that finishes in first at the end of the season will have the highest winning percentage.

Thanks for the clarification!

I realize it doesn't matter, I just thought the system was flawed and not used. Apparently it is flawed but still used. :lol: Kudos to IA!
