Team Rankings

  • Grassroots 365 (G365) tournament results are exclusively weighted in the team rankings. We do not factor in non-G365 events. 
  • The higher levels of competitive divisions are the primary focus of the rankings.  Gold division teams are more likely to be ranked than teams playing in Silver or below. 
  • Final tournament standings as well as head to head results are used to determine placement within the rankings.
  • We observe as many games in person as possible to evaluate teams and players in live action.
  • Rankings are updated and re-evaluated once per month.
