The Elite Conference seems to have gotten the larger share of top clans with the 3,7,9,11 F400 ranked clans (7.5 avg.) while Premier has the 5,8,10,13 F400 ranked clans (9.0 avg.). I would have liked to have seen those more evenly distributed between conferences but it's not a big deal.
Thanks for the hard work, guys. Looking forward to the season!!!
With the random drawing / placement of the top 8 to ensure unbiased, minor diff are expected. Also, the F400 is based on current standing while ICL is built with sports league mentality of "these teams will fluctuate year to year".
The diff in top 1-5 and 6-10 are very minor overall, and with random placement it's about as fair as could be. And when you look at the expected weights conference wide, they are very close and as you said, the Elite Conference has just a slightly higher difficulty level overall than premier, but not a statistically relevant amount. Expected weight avg was 345 and elite was 343 and premier was 347. Both 2 pts +/- from expected.
I think year to year this group will fluctuate well, while if I tweak to much for the "right now" ranking, it may affect to heavy one side or the other in the future.
Anyway, I'm glad the feedback do far is largely positive both in forum and privately. I don't expect to many hiccups.
