System for Ranking and Seeding for WUCC

System for Ranking and Seeding for WUCC

(See seedings)

1. Ranking List: (Done separately for each Division)
Step 1:
Use final standing of most recent WUCC to determine seeding for country spots
Step 2: for the European Region, all spots of European countries become European spots (not country dedicated). According to the most recent Regional Club Championships ( e.G. EUCF) these European Bids get assigned to each European County. (NB: PAUCC and AOUCC are not at a level where the same can be done for those regions)
Step 3: Fill in the remaining teams according to best knowledge.
Step 4: Each Country will rank their teams and the assigned spots of each country get replaced with the team names.

 

2. Seeding the pools.
Semi-random seeding will be used:
Step 1:
The top seed for each pool gets placed according to the ranking list.
Step 2:
Following a number of ‘n’ teams from the ranking list are thrown into a virtual urn, drawn randomly and placed into the next open spots.
2.1: For systems with up to 4 pools, ‘n’ is always equal to the number of pools (while enough teams remain)
2.2: For systems with more than 4 pools, ‘n’ is always a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 50% of the number of pools. (while enough teams remain)
2.3: If the urn holds several teams from one country, then the teams form this country must always be placed in the order of the ranking ( i.e. if the lower team gets drawn first, it becomes automatically the higher team and vice versa)
2.4: If during seeding the pool already holds a team form the same country then within that bracket of one urn team drawn is moved up to two spots up or down to eliminate this situation. Here the following order of attempts is followed (one down, one up, two down, two up). If the situation can still not be solved then the situation remains.
Step 3: Repeat Steps 2ff until all teams have been seeded.
