MG World Rankings | 2022
MG Teams World Rankings

I've been working on this project for the past couple of days. It follows a FIFA like points based World Rankings for all active MG teams. The details of the calculations are as follows:

1) Only active teams have been considered.
2) Points from the past three years (2014-16) have been considered for coming up with the coefficients.
3) (Significantly) More weight is given to points collected in more recent seasons (Wt. for 2016>>2015>>2014).
4) (Marginally) More weight is given to points accumulated higher divisions (Wt. for PT>PCT>CT).
5) Every time points from the ongoing season (2017) are added to every team, points from the similar period will be taken out from three seasons ago (2014 in this case).

I plan to update the standings every time a Rankings Update is published during the season.

The current standings as of the start of 2017 season are as below:

The coefficients are currently low because the scores for the current season (which has the highest weightage) is zero for all teams. Expect the top teams to cross 10000 points at the end of the 2017 season.

I would love to hear from my fellow members in the MG if this is an idea worth pursuing. Please feel free to ask if you have any queries regarding the calculation methodology.

Nice idea, though I would rather have it be for nations and riders instead, as that would rate higher I think for roleplay purposes. Like in football; its based on nations and the club rankings are kinda useless, especially as we're ranked in 3 very different divisions. It would be nice with the nations also, cause then we could see what nations do the best and who does the worst.
I think it's a great idea. It shows relevance and consistency, which I Think is very Nice.

I agree, that a nations list, and riders list would also be cool, but as it is a game, I definately Think that club/team rankings is the most important.

Very nice idea, although I think you should add the hypothetical PT points for PCT teams as well. Not sure how realistic that plan would be though Wink
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.
Would be good to see the maths that goes into making the coefficient so we can better understand why the ranking looks as it does.

Also took me a minute to look up which teams havn't been around for 3 full years to sort out a little ranking of how 2-year or 1-year teams faired against each other.

Not to trash the idea as it is, but what sgdanny is saying, a riders rank would be cool, not to mention usefull in transfers
Have to agree with the above I think while this is a nice rankings to have a Rider Rankings to show their consistency maybe a more useful tool in the game shows the must valuable riders based on points in the world could be useful to crown a World No 1 alongside the seasons Number 1 ranked riders per division
Really cool and my team is actually better placed than expected considering that our horrific first season is still included.

I think that especially a nations ranking would be extremely cool, as you would probably have to go over a riders ranking to get there I suppose that could be fun to but for my part the nations ranking would be a lot cooler. But then that might just be the small-nations manager talking Wink

Also not sure you need to give different coefficients as points are already much easier to come by in high divisions and a PT win is given a lot more points than a CT win already.

Thank you for the responses and suggestions. Keeping track of them all. Will wait some more time to see if more comments come in. Will reply tomorrow and maybe reveal future plans.
I would just keep it a teams rankings though. Have people search for themselves to see who is useful points wise in the transfers, why do the work for them? And I don't really see the point of a nations rankings Smile
Agree with alex on the riders' rankings. Nice work, btw Smile
Thanks for this!
Once again, thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts. Here are some of my thoughts on what has been said so far...

On the idea of a Riders and Nations ranking...

Have already considered this. Aquarius97 has agreed to help with the riders as I was a little apprehensive with the sheer number in the DB, given I'm not an expert with excel. So he will be taking up this project.

As for this helping out others, the points standings from every season is already an indicator of how a rider is performing every season. So that information is readily available. Also remember that this ranking takes into account the past three years' performance. So if a rider is declining or improving, this might not indicate the same immediately.

On adding PT points for PCT teams...

This would require scrutiny of individual races and I'm not sure this would be feasible at the moment.

On the maths behind the coefficients...

Like I mentioned, it follows the same logic as used by FIFA. Points from the present season has the maximum weight, points from the last season a little less weight, points from two seasons ago even less till three years ago. On an average, the weights go down by a factor of 2 or thereabouts every season.

Currently, PT points have been given more weight than PCT, which in turn has more weight than CT.

On the suggestion of removing different weights for the different divisions...

This is something I have considered and also been suggested elsewhere. This will probably be implemented in the next version of the rankings. As it is, PT scores are higher than PCT, which is higher than CT.

Open for further thoughts and debate on this...
Work on the Rider and Nations rankings has already begun! Aquarius is now a co-owner of this project Smile

Posting the Rankings again. Changes from the previous version:

1) Points scored in all divisions have the same weight.
2) Earlier I was using 4 weights for three years and hence the total at the end of the year would be significantly higher than at the start (points for current year going from zero to maximum). That has been corrected now. As points from the current season are added, points in the same period from each of the previous years will be given one weight lower, respectively. Points from 3 years ago will be dropped.
3) The totals at the start and end of the year, given the same consistency in performance, will not change the coefficient much.
4) There aren't very major changes in rankings even with the above changes.

MG World Rankings - After February Rankings Update
The updated World Rankings sees Festina still maintain a comfortable lead at the top, although the gap to Moser has reduced. A poor February sees Vesuvio's co-efficient fall slightly. Orange and Newton remain the highest ranked PCT teams, although both have fallen a couple of places, to Evonik and Gazelle, since the start of the season. Azteca are the highest ranked CT team.

Netia and MOL are the highest improvers since the start of the season, with a ranking increase of 4 positions. Both teams are enjoying a great start to the season. Aegon and Strava are the biggest upwards movers in the PT, with a 3 position improvement this season. No team has improved more than one position in the CT.

VMP - Argon sees the biggest drop of four places in the rankings, as four of the debutantes go past them in co-efficient points gained. The biggest fall in PT is for Project: Africa and in PCT is for Novatek.

MG World Rankings - After March Rankings Update
The gap at the top has decreased even further with Moser just 400 points behind Festina. The former has had a storming start to the year and a good Giro can drastically improve their chances at landing the PT crown. Behind them too, the battle has intensified for third place. Aker's good start, coupled with Vesuvio's sluggish early months sees the gap for the final podium spot close up. Strava are the biggest gainers in the PT, having climbed a massive seven spots since the beginning of the year. They sit pretty in third place in the PT rankings, showing that Strava magic endures across all divisions! The biggest fall so far is by eBuddy, who are yet to get off the blocks this season. This is discounting Project: Africa, already down five ranking spots, and looking unlikely to exist as a team for very long hereafter.

Orange and Newton remain the highest placed PCT teams,with no change in their rankings over the past month. Both teams are favourites for promotion, with the latter now leading the PCT rankings. The biggest gainers of the PCT this season is Isostar having improved by five positions so far. UBS has fallen the most, down five spots. Other notable improvements have been made by Netia and Ferrero, both by four positions, while Compal is down four spots.

The CT has not seen a lot of rankings improvements, with most of the top teams consolidating their positions. It has however seen a couple of teams drop massively. SanCor are down five spots from the start of the year while VMP have slipped a massive seven positions. Kulczyk are the best placed new team in the MG. Just two teams remain who are yet to reach 100 coefficient points.

Love this ranking. Isostar really making a name for themselves, also thanks to their stellar manager, whilst Ferrero prove the value of theirs. Wonder who will make the next big jump in the coming months, Berg Cycles could be in a for a big jump.

7 rank jump since start of the year is insane for us, high flying strava magic, being top of the class when it comes to promo teams really makes the differnece in such rankings <3 The gap to the next few teams is quite big though, I think 20 is the limit for this season and we are likely to fall after our spring campaign.

Strava Magic! Lovely to go climb the ranking, thank you very much for the nice words Shonak Smile Congrats on the highest climb!
