There is a bit of controversy raging in the UK about the inclusion of Team and Doubles results in the RankingsHQ rankings. There is the situation occurring where 15 teams competed in a 4 man team competition and the results have been entered as for a 60 man singles competition where teams are ranked from 1st to 15th. So the four members of the team that finished first get 100 ranking points each, second team are getting 95, third 90 etc. This is skewing the overall rankings and will likely impact UK Masters invites determined at the end of the year.
I am flagging here that when I determine NZ Masters invites for Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k, any doubles or teams resulted included in the rankings will be disregarded for invite purposes. Where it occurs I will delete the team/doubles result and include the next highest result.
Why? Well the Masters is an individual competition and results in Doubles/Team competition are irrelevant. I have no problem if the RHQ Administrator wants to include them but as Masters TO I believe they have no relevance to individual performance.
I understand that the FOW invites do include Doubles results. Personally I feel this is wrong but previous FOW TOs have made the call to allow them and now the genie is out of the bottle.
So please be aware performance/non-performance in a team competition will have no impact on 2012 Fantasy/40k Masters invites.
