As far as I know, as of the commencement of the recent 7/14 league in November, players are now assigned to boards in the order specified by the clan leader rather than being automatically sorted by rating.
I found this out accidentally when our 1st and 2nd boards came out the way I entered them and not, as I expected, in rating order.
If the admins are reading this, it'd be great if you could post here and confirm the change.

in the current clan league pairing system the best two players in each team are automatically paired against each other regardless of where they are placed in the team list, same with the second best, third best etc.
i'm not sure if this is the case in obt chess leagues but in other sporting leagues both team captains will list their player from 1-4 or wh ...[text shortened]... of winning for his team.
the list of tactical changes the captain could make is endless.

In every team sport they pick the team and positions to be played by that team with an eye on the opposition likely team & tatics. Personally I prefer it that way
Originally posted by trev33Yeah, I don't know what I was looking at. I had myself seeded second for our team for the 7 day league, but I am playing many #1 boards. So matchups are still being assigned according to start-time rating and not clan leader ordering.

i saw a 1900 listed 6th in a team but he/she ended up playing in the number 2 or 3 spot.
