Thanks, Leehar. I enjoyed programming it, especially the graphing part.
but I really doubt you'll get any takers on using this to develop a ranking of their own, it really would be best if you developed one yourself for visibility purposes. I know you have played around with it, and I saw all the graphs etc that you showed, but if instead of the cl3 one you have in your OP, you could develop a complete tabular picture there so that we have a better idea of the end result we'll be looking at, I think that would best help this continue further.
On page 2 I have graphs based on all clan wars from jpcloet plus clan league 1-3. The picture doesn't get more complete than that. I just reread it now and realized I had not stated that it was based on all data. I have now amended this in the top of the post.

If you look at the formula and believe that the formula is straightforward and fair, you trust the results because you know they come from a sound formula.
It could be that some of our perceptions are based on popular opinions that do not truly reflect performance.
Anyway, to help us understand and gain confidence in the model, I've added two things to the script:
1) Automatic Accuracy Measurement of the model (in terms of how often higher ranked clans actually win)
2) Breakdown of how each clan war affected the clan's rating
I am still motivated enough to help explain how this works (if it's still necessary) and provide rankings as clan wars conclude, but I am not motivated enough to update the clan war data itself every time a war concludes. That's why I've asked jpcloet for a URL containing clan wars to link to.

No number crunching necessary. Provide me a URL with complete clan war results and I will use it myself. Other people can then either use my script with varying parameters or develop their own script which could be completely different, but still based on the same data set provided by jpcloet's URL.
