The purpose of rankings is not to rank others, but to be able to rank one's self

it is also why most National Pro teams head right back down to National Pro after 1 season in WL - they play mostly crap teams and have a great record because of that

Most of the Pro teams that have recently been able to stay in WL were in fact just added teams of existing WL owners


From what I have seen from the outside looking in, I think this season is better than it has been in awhile. 34 of the 48 teams appear to be competitive. Hopefully in the next couple of seasons another wave of teams are added to the fray. I think there's hope that we can have a run with nearly full Pro teams in the coming seasons.

As far as the regular season rankings, yeah, just for entertainment purposes only. But I have spent some time looking at the scores and track records of the teams. And some guessing. Do need more data. Just trying to make the regular season that doesn't matter time a bit more interesting.

yes - this season has fewer dead teams

and yes - the rankings are fun and I appreciate you doing them

BUT

in the 8 conferences, you have the following

Europe - West - 3 non-CP rosters are in the playoffs and the #1 Seed faces a 4 seed of CPU's - regular season means nothing
Europe - East - level 63 team isn't making the playoffs - 5 teams for 4 spots - Bears likely the team that misses

NAPL - Canada - River Rats out - PVAC for Crusaders for 1 spot
NAPL - USA - two 1/2 roster teams - 4 playoff teams set

SLAP - South America - 3 CPU rosters, 1 seed will have a playoff bye
SLAP - Africa - 2 CPU rosters - playoff teams set

Pacific - SE Asia - 1 CPU team, one partial roster team - 4 playoff teams set
Pacific - Oceana - 2 CPU's and 1 retirement team - 1 seed gets a first round bye

so in all of National Pro, the regular season will decide 1 playoff spot in 2 conferences and those likely already determined

regular season pretty much meaningless like Mauler said

By the way, nothing wrong with that at all. This whole game is for entertainment purposes only.

Well, in the leagues where the 1-seed will basically get a bye, there will probably be some jockeying for position for that 1-seed, won't there? If I'm trying to reach WL, only having to win 2 playoff games instead of 3 is a big advantage.

But yeah, that only goes so far, so point still well-taken.

Rankings very hard to get anywhere near accurate. Far too many under-aged/over-aged dots throughout to make solid comparisons. But a few points

Leagues would be better if condensed. Wont happen

A top co-ord trying is probably worth about 40 points against a decent or good co-ord.

Top co-ords are busy have their plans set and work with the best dots

The best dots come from great agents who wanna win at the top level


Of the teams listed above 2 of the top 8 have co-ords who may not have WL experience. They will probably get some in the playoffs !!!


And its just plain wrong to rank any Jersey Showboats team @ 14 no matter what !!!

She won NA Pro KR/PR MVP last season, her fourth so far. That endorsement EQ looks pretty sick. Tif da Cat won offensive MVP again, but they gave the EQ to my Smash E who was third in the rankings. That EQ is sick as hell. I wish I could get that for my other FB too. Come to think of it, my Crash E won defensive MVP, but our team already had 3 endorsement EQ, so maybe that's why he didn't get it, because our kicker always gets it. The nice thing about Pro is there hasn't been any of the teams who lose on purpose to game the MVP, so we won all the MVPs, by virtue of the fact we had the best regular season. The real question should be, will we be able to do it in the playoffs as well.

#1 seed is always worth something, and is worth fighting for. Unless you lay an egg in the playoffs like we did last season.

I agree with this and frankly think NA Pro is by far the toughest League all around and that should be reflected in the rankings. Jersey definitely is a contender in NA Pro and few of the teams ranked above them would be. That's what it looks like to me anyhow.

I must say, although our dude Boxwrench makes the best returners and Cheetara is the best I've ever seen, KP's returner on Austin might be the best in all GLB. She almost singlehandedly won an upset in a game that otherwise would have been very one sided . It looks like KP might win that KR/PR MVP this season.

No teams have 1/2 rosters, and seeds #3 and 4 are up for grabs. I guess by your math, 4 is half of 55.

Regular Season in the Pro's has been meaningless for quite some time now if that helps to hear from me. However, red pretty much knows how I feel about most things in GLB so he can talk for me anytime he wants. While I am talking don't get your skirt in a bunch just because jmarter's rankings aren't to your liking either.
