I expected a May update to incorporate the 34:9 demolition of ATL (best showing in 1 year?) but we don't seem to have gained many ranking points compared to the clans above us.
May did incorporate that win, its on the recently completed wars list in the OP
Its not best showing in one year, that shows you the highest ranked clan you've beaten within the past 12 months.
ATN had a higher rating then ATL at the time of your win, so its shown as your best win in 1 year.
Remember, all clans are not created equal. Its a performance based ranking, so it compares / calculates the final score compared to what you'd expect from you.
TOFU is a ~1400 rated clan right now, and ATL is ~1000. You are expected to beat them, and significantly. So while you gained some points, its not the same as say...TOFU beating S&M 34:9
You'd be expected to lose that war, so if you blew them out you'd gain a shit ton of points. Because it measures performance, not wins / losses (there are other rankings that are more focused on wins and losses).
As I've explained in the past, if you played a clan like AFOS and won 21-20, potentially even tho you won, you could lose points because you would be expected to significantly win, when you barely squeaked one out. So TOFU would have vastly UNDER performed (losing rating) and ATL would have vastly over performed (even tho they lost) and perhaps gain points.
I did a big explanation / presentation on this sort of thing somewhere in the thread, but thats the short explanation
