October 16, 2019 Rankings

We’re back and better than ever! These rankings are the first of the season, and so obviously we should caution that not every region may be equally represented. In fact, we specifically excluded two sets from these first sets of rankings, RAFT and SSNCT, as there was a very small sample size of teams that played them and who played other sets as well (in fact for RAFT that sample size was all of one team, who only played five matches of RAFT as a full team to boot). We expect that these small sample sizes will be dealt with by our next rankings.

Additionally, you may notice our power adjustments are a bit wonky and unfamiliar. To calculate adjusted powers per game in this new system, take the cube root of unadjusted powers per game, add the adjustment, and cube that sum to get the adjusted powers per game. We are also changing the weights of PPB and powers per game to reduce the disproportionate impact of powers. However, the meaning of the scores will not necessarily change. We have listed criteria of what a score of 100 means (24 ppb and 8 powers per game), and the new rankings will not change that. If this seems confusing, don’t worry, Groger Ranks member Steven Liu will explain the new adjustment system in an upcoming article (with graphs!). Finally, these rankings will not be weighted rankings as not enough teams have played more than one rankable tournament. We anticipate re-introducing weighted rankings by our next set of rankings.
