My 8* in 7th PL - 118091.

Same record, my team has a lower ID number. Why does the prev season position really make that 'difference'? Seems stupid to me/

Seniority, I guess. Just win some more games next season. Maybe a little heads up telling you your team isn't ready for 6th (with only 11 wins).

Yes. Previous season's positions count.

Only the top 30 teams (in blue) advance. You barely missed it.

Teams that were demoted the season before have tie breaker over teams that remained in the league, which have a tie breaker over teams that were promoted to that league like yourself.

You're the coach, so you have to look at it like this:
You won 11 games, which wasn't good enough.

There were 8 teams with an 11-7 record, and it surprises me that even one of them advanced. Usually it takes 12 or 13 in those lower PLs.

I'd say it's a better tiebreaker than ID number, honestly.

Definitely seems more fair to me.

I prefer me whining about it. :p

I dunno, something about seniority as a tiebreaker seems a little jaded to me, I guess. Should be some other way. Whatever though, can't complain. I'll just have to kill a bit more this season, lol.

And this topic was a little more of a kind of debate/discussion regard the PL rules/tiebreakers than an actual question, so I don't understand why it was moved to the beginner's forum....

P.S. Thanks for all the people that didn't think I understood how PLs work. Yeah, I'm a complete retard. Thx.

11 wins was enough to advance but just slightly. Just like stated above the only reason you lost was the tie breakers of the people that were previously in PL 7. Now for a real mess up not on advancement but placement look at PL 8 of season 221. The second place and third place teams have just moved up. The second place team has an ID of 93493 and the third place team has an ID of 1930 and both went undefeated. Good lucky next season and this season you will win mostly all the tiebreakers.
