2015 Weekly WFTDA Playoff Rankings – Slow week, whew!!!

With only 10 sanctioned bouts reported to FTS last weekend you would think it would be an easy week for me.  Well, it kind of was for the most part.  But this will also give me a good chance to talk about a struggle with my rankings, and how Im going to overcome it.  But, it will truly make my rankings now completely match those of WFTDA.  But as I’ve always said, Im trying to be close so this can be used as a tool for teams and not fact.

You will see this week Helsinki and Twin City both had drops to their rankings despite winning.  The biggest problem is that they played teams not yet ranked on the released WFTDA rankings.  I ran into a very similar problem with all of the Des Moines United opponents.  Going forward Im going to continue to list the bouts as 0.5 WFTDA score until that team gets their first released rankings.  I will then go back and adjust all of their bout weights and that should help things get back to square.  With that we will see some shifting of rankings as we go forward and teams get their first released rankings, but again it is the best for everyone.  So stayed tuned.

The biggest match-up this last week was Rose City taking on Rocky Mtn.  The result was a good beat-down of 356-139 for Rose City.  Above all else this just shows the huge gap in talent at the top of WFTDA.  This is a sort of gap I would expect between teams 40-60 spots apart in the rankings.  Yet this was #2 and #12.  And in fact it barely affected their WFTDA averages.  That is just wild.  It is things like this that make me lean more and more towards a format similar to what is going on with the British Roller Derby Champs.  (See their format here http://www.britishchamps.com/tournament-structure/)  They are basically running things like how they do their soccer structure.  I really think this may not be the worse idea for WFTDA to look at something like this.  Geography would be a bit of an issue, but there may be ways around that.

Without too much other key bouts going on Im going to keep this short, so enjoy.
