Ranking System

Note: Only the highest-ranked team from each school will be considered in the rankings. Additional teams from the same school that place lower will be excluded. For instance, if Team University ranks 1st, 3rd, and 6th, only the 1st-place ranking will be considered.

How Rankings are Calculated

  1. Each team begins with a base power rating of 1.00.
  2. A rating is assigned to each contest, calculated from the average power rating of the top ten teams participating.
  3. The rating of each contest is weighted (up to 5%) depending on how long ago it was. **New as of November 2023**
  4. Contest are then given additional weighting based on how many total schools compete in the event. **New as of November 2023**
  5. Teams earn points at the event based on both their placement and the event's strength. Winning is given more weight; the point gap between 1st and 4th place is greater than that between 10th and 20th.
  6. A team's new rating is calculated using its top five performances. This cycle repeats from step 2 until the ratings stabilize.
