    Good to see that barely any of my requests made it lol  :'(

    Having to play all of Beijing, Pacific, Cairo, Berlin and Rio away = losing at least one or two matches to HGA  :'(

    Dublin and NDT at home too, that's a waste of home ground advantage haha

    Out of interest how exactly were the tiers decided? Was it based of some form of statistic or purely Holz's opinion?

    it looks like it was just off my suggestion.

    for the record i pretty much ordered it in points scored and ladder postion.

    with the exception of Rio, Mexico and Christchurch

    Rio and Mexico clearly went into full rebuild so

    Rio moved down from Tier 1 to Tier 3, PNL moved up from 3 to 2. Free spot in Tier 1 opened up
    Mexico moved down to down from 2 to Tier 3 and PNL moved up from 3 to 2.

    Christchurch went full on contend mode so moved from Tier 2 to Tier 1 in the free spot opened up from Rio.


    Regardless as the games are spread out there wont be any disadvantage going in another tier. For example If i was put in Tier 3 i wouldn't have any advantage as i still need to play all 17 teams anyway.


    Going forward if we use this system, just going on points scored with judgement calls on teams that make huge moves makes sense to me.

    Bit stiff to a few teams such as Toronto, Beijing, Moscow and Rio though.

    Teams that made wholesale changes shouldn't be subject to last years stats to determine this years events.

    The trade period shouldn't be factored at all

    The ladder at the end of the season (regular fixture) should then be split into 3 tiers in order on where each team finished

    Nobody is forcing coaches to rebuild or change their strategy, so what they do in the off season shouldn't matter

    Keep it simple, 1-6, 7-12 and 13-18

    It's not like it has a massive difference at the end of the day because we all end up playing each other once no matter how you cut it

    I thought it was mainly to make rivalry round work for R1. Hence why we got put into Tier 2. Otherwise would have been tier 1 ofc

    That, yes.



    Also not sure why the controversy? You play every team once no matter what, and form is essentially random. I accepted the tiers coz "why not?" pretty much.

    Its just a quick rough guide to make the fixture a little more interesting.

    So getting it closer to accurate is better.
