I've read that their algorithm uses results obtained through AES, but also includes set scores and margin of victory as additional factors.
I would argue that set scores and margin of victory may not accurately represent the actual strength of a team since a coach may elect to play his subs during a match that it has clearly in control.
I'm more interested if directors of the Qualifier tournaments use it to seed their tournaments?
IMO - The current national rankings don't appear to fairly represent certain teams.
e.g. Dallas Skyline 18 is ranked 42 and has beat #23 HJV (4 times), #17 Tejas (2 times), and #32 Houston Skyline (once) for a combined record of 7-0. They've only lost to the #1 (TAV), #13 (AJV) and #12 (KJ Baden) in the national rankings.
Hate to whine - just want to understand.
