A number of people have asked about the way team placings are displayed on CTP Teams so let’s have a look at the different ways of displaying rankings.
First of all there are three different views for looking at team rankings:
- Overall – shows Premier and Competitive League team rankings
- Premier League – shows only Premier League team rankings
- Competitive League – shows only Competitive League rankings
So in any given week every team in CTP Teams will be shown in two of the three tables.
It follows that each team can have up to two rankings at any given time.
Right now this is how the Premier League looks – these are the ten Premier League teams ranked in order of the number of team points they have.
However it does not follow that the top ten teams in the Premier League will also be the top ten teams overall in the competition.
This is because there could be teams in the Competitive League who have more team points and thus they will be ranked higher overall.
Looking at the screenshot above it can be seen that when the still was taken Empower World Team and SurfAholics Bravo were in sixth and tenth places overall. They didn’t show in the Premier League table as they are in the Competitive Team but their high team points totals put them in the top ten when ranked by all teams in CTP Teams.
Looking at the Competitive League (above) probably gives the best way of illustrating this point.
It can be seen that the current top three in the Competitive League are:
- Empower World Team
- SurfAholics Bravo
These points totals are enough to get them top three slots in their league but when compared with all the teams in competition from both leagues it is a different picture and over all the three teams come in like this:
6. Empower World Team
10. SurfAholics Bravo
So most teams will have two positions at any given time. Technically all teams will always have two positions – their position in their own league and their position overall – but for some teams (those at the very top for example) this number is likely to be the same in each case.
For teams in the Competitive League whose points totals are lower than the tenth placed team in the Premier League then their overall ranking will always be their current ranking in the Competitive League plus ten.
