2015 WFTDA Playoff Rankings and Spring Roll Breakdown

I am going to throw a ton of data at you tonight, and then give you a day or two to digest it.  I will then follow up on Thursday or Friday with a little more data and a little preview of the upcoming bouts/tournaments that are going to shape the drive to D1 and D2 Playoffs.  First up tonight though will be my breakdown of Spring Roll.

Team # of Bouts Tourney Record Average WFTDA Score Change in Weekly Rankings
Arch Rival 3 3-0 578.53 +2
Dallas 3 2-1 403.46 +2
Tri-City 3 3-0 381.60 +11
Kansas City 3 2-1 370.91 +10
Brewcity 3 3-0 360.03 +9
Toronto 3 1-2 294.42 -4
Chicago Outfit 3 1-2 292.31 0
Naptown 1 1-0 290.55 -3
Ft. Wayne 3 0-3 269.48 +5
Calgary 3 0-3 224.84 -4
Old Capitol 3 1-2 213.64 -3
Killamazoo 3 0-3 192.00 0

As you can see it was a great weekend for Tri-City, Kansas City, and Brewcity.  Tri-City and KC both really put their push towards a D1 spot in play and Brewcity is now just on the outside of D2.  All three teams will be looking to keep the momentum going and advance into the playoffs they desire.

And as we had the new WFTDA Rankings release, I will give you my total rankings with all 274 teams I’ve recorded bouts for.  Im sure I may have missed one or two here or there, nobody in the Top 150 I can assure you, but this has still been a massive effort.  I really hope that as we wind down to playoffs this experiment works out and the majority of my rankings hold true with WFTDA’s, especially in the Top 60.  But we shall see.  As always remember I only use WFTDA released rankings for the bout weights and bouts that are listed on FTS (even that gets a bit hairy with relying on teams communicating properly with them).  Here you go.

2015 Weekly WFTDA Playoff Rankings

Im not going to lie, the back end of the rankings exhausted me this weekend.  There were just tons of bouts by teams not in my Top 100, but I have to register them anyways.  Im thinking next week I will release my full rankings, at this point that is 266 teams and I dont even know how many bouts.  But with the main purpose being the teams head to playoffs this year I will again focus on the Top 100 as we had some movement.

I have to start with Jacksonville beating Windy City 312-54.  At this point that is the highest WFTDA Points bout of the season, just edging the Gotham win over London from last July.  I say that this week as I am still using the April 1st rankings, but will be updating next weekend once the May 1st rankings are released.  My guess is with Windy’s decline this year it wont be the highest scoring bout anymore, but that is still impressive.

*Edit* No Coasts bout with Omaha was listed as WFTDA sanctioned at the time of my entry, but has since been removed from sanctioning.  That will be updated next week.

Wasatch and Sin City battled to a 194-128 bout that helped bout teams.  Wasatch moved up 11 spots this week and despite the loss Sin City moved up 1.

The rankings will get shifted next week as we have Spring Roll and that will go a long way towards determining who is in, and who is out.  Also we will have all the bouts since May 1st get updated with the release of the new rankings.  We are only about 6 weeks away from the end of the season and Im sure it will be a wild ride all the way to the finish.

As a group this was an amazing tournament.  We knew what we were getting from Rose City, but Victoria really threw their name in the hat of that very top level of WFTDA.  Im sure Texas is disappointed in their 3 losses, but they kept the scores close so it really didnt hurt their rankings all that much.  The real winners this week were Helsinki and Emerald CIty as both of them made huge gains and improved their playoff position greatly.  Meanwhile NW Arkansas is probably out of the playoff picture at this point after dropping 23 spots this weekend.
