there are many clans who beat some other clan but are ranked below them. one win (especially if it is win by 1-2 games) is not fact that should move someone to #1, for be the best you need winning constantly vs the best clans, what only THOTA did. TOFU has zero (or 1, howewer anyone think about it) win vs top clan.
for everyone who looks on power rankings on the way clan A beat clan B, clan B beat clan C, so clan A is better than clan C, one fact: KoRT won vs TSM 10-8 in group stage of league, so if TSM win 10-9 vs TOFU also in league does it mean that KORT is stronger than TOFU because of that?
not sure if anyone here follows ncaa college football at all, but this is basically the biggest problem with the BCS rankings, NOBODY is ever happy. its almost impossible to rank teams because of a) there is too many teams, and b) the strength of schedules.
same thing as well with ncaa basketball. st johns beats wvu, georgetown, notre dame, duke, uconn, pitt and nova this year. all of which were ranked in the top 25. no other team has beaten that many top 25 teams this year. st johns is only ranked 15th right now, and they JUST got into the top 25 recently. sad, but true. im not even a johnnies fan, but if i was, id be pissed that i wasnt ranked top 3 in the country after those impressive wins! i guess bottom line here is that - no matter what, its impossible to have a clear cut ranking system that everybody will agree on. if they cant do it in collegiate sports, what makes us think we can do it on this site?
