The RCL Football League standings are based on five variables: Wins, Ties, Points Scored, Playoff Performance, and League Competitiveness.
Wins receive 500 points. Ties receive 250 points. Playoff wins count as such: Championship Game = 650, Seminfinals Game = 350, Consolation Game = 200, Consolation Bracket Wins = 50. These points are added to a team’s Total Points Scored and then multiplied against a League Index. The league index – which is in place to credit stronger vs weaker divisions – takes the Total Points Scored for a league and indexes it against the average of all RCL leagues. So if the average is 1,000 per league and one league has scored 1,100, that league would get a 10% boost (1100/1000 = 1.1). In the 2009 RCL football league, the indexes ranged from 98-102 and, thus, served as merely a virtual tiebreaker in cases where two teams are very close in Win Points + Total Points but one team is in a stronger league than the other.
