well, if we see behavior like that, it would certainly indicate that it is not a very effective ranking. won't know for sure until we get responses and see though. I'd be surprised and disappointed to see voting like that from anyone.

It may never be as major, but you'll always have some element of bias, it just depends on how well BG can smooth the variations.
It doesn't even have to be malicious, an easy example is Grifftron's prediction of Tofu to win the CC3, that is his honest opinion, but thats based a lot on Pack losing to Tofu and thinking them better than say Kort who they've never played in a full-on war.

He may very well be right that they are better, but it still based on his own perspective, which in some ways is the main value of an opinion poll like this (to get an overall perception of where people think Clans lie.

FYI I wouldn't mind being involved in voting here :)
Thanks for the props swimmer!

I don't think there is anything wrong with voting for clans and, like college basketball, there is a level of awareness the computers could not give. Using the 4 beats 1 example, it may not make a big difference in either the computer ranking or the vote, but the voters may know that two members of the #1 clan just quit and went to #4, resulting in a win. If so, I might be inclined to move the #4 team ahead of the #1 team...

Just my .02

Polls such as this are certainly subject to bias. I remember TOFU having gone two years undefeated and having the strongest line-up of players (small clan, average rank brigadier) yet Blitz perennially ranked us #6 as he said TOFU were 'unproven'. It therefore made sense that - rather like diving/skating etc - the highest and lowest marks were discarded so that the mean average was less affected by a biased vote. And the one thing that I always felt was important in a ranking table such as this was to identify a clan's strength/potential rather than a recent loss in a challenge. No clan goes on undefeated, yet even after one or two losses you probably wouldn't (shouldn't?) demote them in your perception of their potential.

So for me this is rather like a 'seeding' method. Nadal may not have played competitive tennis for eight months and has slipped down the ATP rankings, yet he would most certainly be seeded in the Top 4 if he entered a tourney. That's why I think it's important to look at a clan's membership when conducting this exercise - it's all about potential rather than past results (which the F400 capably accomplishes).

And just for the record....if I do submit a Top 25 ranking it will have been done with the input of others in my clan rather than just my own perception. Makes sense to run a poll in one's clan forum and get a more-balanced result. Cheers

Of course there is an element of individual perspective (aka bias). That's why there are many opinions given, otherwise it would be "BG's biased one person poll". More voices are combined into a chorus rather than solo.

I also would hope that if he is selective in his selections of voices, reasonable minds can give their individual perspectives, while giving an honest self evaluation not completely dominating their poll. (can't think of the exact word I'm looking for here).

But in the end, removing the top and bottom score and having some good coaches selected for this poll, we can get a good picture of the OVERALL picture of clan perceptions / potential

I would LOVE to see jefjef's ranking of us.....25th everytime :D :lol:
I could care less how we are ranked in any system, we enjoy our group and love the game. But would like to see how everyone as a combined group sees the clan world :)

Maybe I'm crazy, but couldn't the rating system just work exactly the way the CC points system works. Use the same formula? Maybe it's been suggested before, but why couldn't that be another system that could then be combined with things like F400 and others to be averaged and create a BCS type ranking?
