With a successful Eastern and Western regionals now behind us, we can now turn to see how the rankings have shifted at the mid-season mark. Rankings are calculated using the elo system unveiled this year. The rankings, which can be found on our website, currently incorporate all official matches up until November 19th, 2017.

The Gameplay Department has also been able to provide further insights this season. In the “Additional Stats” tab of our rankings page, you will also find teams’ quaffle point differentials, and S.W.I.M. (Snitching When It Matters) stats. This additional information will be able to give insight to possible play styles; whether a team is geared more for a more aggressive offense or defensive game plan, and how well/often a team plays in tight games.
