For the sake of argument, THOTA beat TSM, TOFU beat KORT, TSM just beat TOFU in a mini challenge, and if KORT beats THOTA, then we are looking at....
Also, if you keep it only to the most recent challenges, TOFU beat KORT, so we leapfrog them to #2, but then if KORT beats THOTA just a couple months later, do they leapfrog TOFU and THOTA?
I like the idea of leapfrog in theory, but its tough in practice.
Well i believe any ladder system in place will not make everyone happy (as seen in previous attempts), but I think this ladder at least gives clans below #2 an incentive to stay busy challenging up the ladder. I would also say that perhaps there should be something set for the #1 clan, maybe that they must challenge #2 or #3 as a "#1 contender" role, similar to boxing/MMA rankings. This would make sure that no clan make a large jump among the upper tier of clans, that they actually earn their way through other established clans before going for the #1 title. But this should probably be in the ladder thread...
And qwert, I completely disagree that TOFU has taken down clans of the same quality of THOTA outside of required tournament setups. Even the TOFU-KORT challenge where TOFU had more wins but officially lost is still a mess of a situation... In my opinion, I would put TOFU right with THOTA in terms of talent/skill as Ive played with both sides and know just how good they are. But based on results, TOFU hasnt gone into a big challenge against TSM, LOW, or other clans at their peak: this is no fault of TOFU's as I know alot of those types of clans declined challenges with them recently. And dont take this as Legion or AOC are slouches, because thats not the case at all and any clan needs to bring their A game to beat them. But its been pointed out several times the gap that exists after the first five or so clans.
Just to clarify again, this is no shot at TOFU and I believe they are on the same level with THOTA, and a challenge between the two seems inevitable. But I can see where THOTA says they want to see TOFU take on a clan in that elite tier to make sure they earn that spot. TOFU's overall resume over 7 challenges is very consistent and some wins are very impressive (including over my clan when we were at full strength), but they dont have that standout win(s) like THOTA has in the past year, which is why I feel they still deserve that #1 spot. This is a perception poll, and you are completely in your right to disagree with my view, but in that same light dont come and say
