WFTDA 2015 Playoffs Weekly Rankings – Welcome back to the hunt Cincy!!!

Welcome back to the weekly 2015 WFTDA rankings and as we get started I just have to take care of some admin items first.  With WFTDA releasing their February 28th rankings I went back an updated all the bouts that had previously been entered for early March with the new bout weights (reminder, I use WFTDA release rankings and Flattrackstats.com posted results).  So there has been some movement simply due to that.  Just look at the four How the West Was Won teams.  All of them advanced since last week by having bout weights increase.

Also, I just need to send a big shout out to my peeps in Canada.  Last week, for the first time, Canada actually provided the most visitors to the site.  Very cool stuff.  And dont forget that you can now follow me and keep posted on more updates on Twitter @derbymath.

Now on to this week’s rankings.  As you will see I have 235 teams listed, that is all the teams that I am showing have completed a WFTDA sanctioned bout since July 1, 2014 and thus apply to the 2015 playoffs.  It would take a lot of space to discuss all of them, but I’d be lacking if I didnt highlight one performance in particular.  That would be none other than the Cincinnati Rollergirls.

To say their 308-96 win over NEO this weekend was much needed would be an understatement.  Their last WFTDA win was way back in September of 2013.  With that losing streak they had seen their ranking drop to 96th in the February 28th WFTDA release (86th in Derby Math Rankings).  But all of that is in the past, and this result allows for hope for the future.

This win advanced them all the way up to 66th in the Derby Math Rankings and just an 8 point average out of 60th and the final D2 Playoff spot.  With plenty of season left remaining, and having only 3 bouts currently counting towards the playoffs, Cincinnati is back in the hunt for a playoff spot.  Im projecting that it will take a WFTDA average of 240-245 in order to qualify for playoffs and Cincinnati could easily get back up there with one more performance like what they just had against NEO.  With at least 6 bouts coming up (Ann Arbor, Blue Ridge, Twin City, Ft. Wayne, Nashville, and Red Stick) they have to like their chances to get their average back up to that total.  Sure is going to be a fun 3+ months of derby watching their comeback.

  1. I love the job you’re doing. Sadly WFTDA doesn’t release scores of sanctioned games, the rest of the world just has to guess what’s a sanctioned game and what’s not. So when WFTDA does release a ranking it’s time to review the games that were played the previous month and see if the number of games match up with WFTDA’s count.

    It seems that the following games from February were not WFTDA sanctioned:
    2/07 Naptown vs Demolition City
    2/14 Classic City vs Greenville
    2/21 Paper Valley vs Mid-State
    2/28 Richland County vs Lowcountry

    I hope this is correct and helpful. If anybody knows different, please post.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. That truly has been the hardest part without there been a for sure list of bouts that are sanctioned and not. Even knowing that I am probably missing some bouts and that the bout weights arent perfect, I still hope they are close enough that some people find this useful. I think one thing that is very interesting is watching how closely my rankings match up with FTS. I just really hope that we see at the end of this year I was able to get a huge majority of the rankings correct.
