What does the seed mean in the google docs document?

What does the seed mean in the google docs document?

The Cogs league is based quite fittingly on cogs. There are several different rotating cogs, each containing several teams. The top cog holds the #1 seeded team, the second cog the next three teams, the following cog the next few, etc. Each week, the lowest-seeded team from a cog plays the highest-seeded team from the cog below it. If the team from the lower cog wins, it breaks into the cog above. After the weekly games, each cog rotates. This means that another team will go to the bottom of the cog, another will go to the top, and others will take a break, all in a sequential order.

Better explanation and diagram here:

You're in the cog that ranges from position 5 to position 8, I'd assume.

It was tempting to call it #5-#7 actually, but that's a conversation for another time.

Both you (Skrim) and Aqua qualified for the quarter-finals of the Fjords tournament, which is where the seeds come from. However, neither team made it to the semi-finals, where the final four were. Thus: Both Ophelia and Muppets can claim the same seed of #5-#7. Technically Crow is a new team, but it felt appropriate to use the previous seed, since both captains qualified in that seed after all.

Don't feed bad though. Muse's seed is WAY worse.

The Seed doesn't represent your final position on The Cogs either, just your statistical place amongst the other teams based on previous events. I'm not looking forward to the math next time around, by the way.

It probably is, you know. I have no idea what the normal setup should be: I'm just going with what feels right.

Jess, by the way, we're calling Cogs "Scrimmage," not league.  For future reference.  Thanks!

And I lobby for better seeding!  But then again, I have no credibility, hehehe.

Minor change, changing the logo to
