After most of this thread had already transpired someone posted "NA LCS week three By the Numbers", you will notice that FLY is above TSM even though they are both in second. Whether that is due to the "Numbers" or because Alphabetical listing doesn't matter. In either case it is a logical sequence, not sure why the main standings page couldn't have done the same.

They are the representation of the teams from order of best ratio to worst, in the case of a tied match ratio then the logical next step is to arrange the tied teams by individual game win/loss ratio. I could accept TSM in second place despite this if they were at least in alphabetical order but they aren't. TSM is ranked 2nd over FLY purely because they are TSM, the golden child of NA LCS. No one is ranked number 2. FlyQuest and TSM share the #2 spot. They are tied. They have not fought each other.

: Flyquest has been playing easier teams. TSM fought P1, CLG, and C9. FQ toughest battle was IMT. Next week they play C9 and we shall see if they can close their games as quick as the other top teams
It isn't about what teams they have faced, the standings aren't there to determine theoretical power rankings. They are the representation of the teams from order of best ratio to worst, in the case of a tied match ratio then the logical next step is to arrange the tied teams by individual game win/loss ratio. I could accept TSM in second place despite this if they were at least in alphabetical order but they aren't. TSM is ranked 2nd over FLY purely because they are TSM, the golden child of NA LCS.
