Discussion on different methods are ramping up – I’d like to make one suggestion on nomenclature.
Graph Method: Methods that have to do with determining what teams have beatpaths and beatwins to other teams. Examples are the current Standard graph method on this site, the Iterative graph method, and the Beatflukes graph method.
Power Method: Methods that take the Graph methods and then determine sequential rankings from them. Examples are the current strength-of-beatpower power method on this site, the Weighted power method, and MOOSE’s (what’s the name?) Total Paths power method.
I might have already misstated something, because I think I’m still unclear what power method the Iterative graph method uses.
