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.

    1. From my conversations with someone that was part of the process a new team will have a bout (I believe officially non-sanctioned) against another team and then the hypothetical WFTDA points they would earn in that bout allows WFTDA to get an estimate of where they would fall had it been a bout. So lets say that Team A earns 300 of these WFTDA points in their test and would fall between 30-35 in the rankings had it counted. WFTDA then uses that and has a separate bout weight system (that needs to be released in my opinion to clear things up a bit) so that when that team starts playing additional bouts their opponents play against that weight instead of in the past where it could be 0.5 for new teams. When Sun State did their little US tour earlier this year I believe the weight they were given was 2.25, which was pretty fair (maybe slightly low) and allowed the US teams to not take a huge hit by playing them. Des Moines United is probably the other big team this will impact this year, but at this time I don’t know what their given weight was.
