Content below was previously on its own page, but is now archived here (14/3/2013).
As mentioned in previous posts, we are reviewing our rankings algorithms for next year.
Below is an example of what we are hoping to achieve. In this instance we have doubled the 'game rating' value, which will actuate more movement in rankings points on a week to week basis.
The week to week changes under thus now system will be added to this page (shortly) weekly for reference.
Until the end of the 2012 season, the main page and posts will all be calculated on the current system.
Keep watching here for changes!
