I decided to make a simple ranking of countries on the base of their team's performance in the international cups this season. For the team reaching 1/8 finals in any cup I gave 1 point, 1/4 finals - 2 points, 1/2 finals - 3 points and for reaching the final - 4 points. Here's what we have:
Team - Points
England - 17
Greece - 13
Germany and Netherlands - 9
Italy - 7
Russia - 6
Australia, Portugal and Romania - 5
France - 4
Spain and Turkey - 3
USA - 2
Brazil and Malaysia - 1
Norway - 0
What do you think about such ranking?
And for winning the final ?
Over time, Tegimus includes this event in the system..
Points and Country rankings of teams according to their progress in international cups
May be you need to give more points to Champions Cup, then Super Cup then challengers.
I think it will be nice to have such a ranking built into the game
Even more simple way to know which countries (top six teams) are generally stronger than others is to do the following calculation: (number of teams in 1/8 finals) - (expected number of teams in 1/8 finals).
The expected number is 3 because every country has 6 teams in the group stage (32 teams), and 16 teams (a half) make 1/8 finals.
Here is what we have this season:
England, Germany, Greece, Netherlands and Russia. +2
Italy and Portugal. +1
Australia and France. 0
Romania, Turkey and USA. -1
Brazil, Malaysia and Spain. -2
Something like this could be used to determine the quotes for different countries, because the existing quotes allocation clearly doesn't reflect relative strength of the countries.
And they shouldn't, at least not at this stage of the game.
The 26th season's ranking:
France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Russia and USA +1
Greece, Spain 0
Australia, Romania, Turkey -1
Brazil, Malaysia -3
The combined ranking:
Germany, Russia +3
Greece, Italy, Portugal +2
Romania, Spain, Turkey -2
Brazil, Malaysia, Norway -5
