    I thought teams would be arranged in divisions according to strength. Is it just random placement?

    To prime the league the clans were arranged based on their challenge performance in 2012.

    Good call!!
    Perhaps the clan list,which some clans give such importance to, ought to have a similar filter?
    I'm sure overall performance is a better measure than points scored by mounting lots of challenges.

    Just my take, and I can appreciate it's a simple solution, but the 'challenge performance' statistics are unreliable.. 'quasi rigged' by the few that place great emphasis upon them.
    We no longer play clan challenges ( other than the ODD personally requested affair ), and more clans are taking this stance than ever before, yet we obviously made an higher division than many that continue to use challenges regularly...

    next year however, we'd be plumb last based upon your qualifying criteria..
    as a competitive league clan is this right...if it's not based upon regular league appearance then first cum first served, in any new league, I say ??

    Rev, I assume it was only a way of setting up the first season, from now on it will be based on the previous season.

    I don't think 1st come 1st served would work Dean.You will just get hopelessly biased divisions.
    My post was just harping back to an old grouch of mine with the clan list.
    I notice that all teams entered in the leagues have an average team rating.
    Wouldn't that be the most logical stat to use to set up the divisions for the first time?
    I failed to get enough volunteers for a team by the way.
    I think my lot still prefer the challenges.
