Stephen,

The only 1st Division team ranked lower than this years 2nd Division teams is Japan who has a 5-19 win-loss record and even if we only go back to 2005 their win-loss ratio is 5-12 whereas Peace Team and China only moved into the ranks mid IC 2011 have 4-7 and 3-8 win-loss ratios respectively. Japan started the IC with less rating points than either Peace Team and China and their win loss record in the IC was no better than those two teams.

It is also very important to look at the Rating Points of each nation as well as the Rank. Denmark with 37.06 is only separated from Canada  with 37.82 by 0.76 Rating points and there are two nations, Germany and Sweden in between. As Brett stated, one win by any of these teams would see them leap frog over the others.

The system does have a traffic jam at around  37 rating points and that is because the system is still evolving, and yes, we had Four nations join the Full Ranks during the IC.

For a better understanding of how the system works do read the explanation as Brett suggested.

Keep on kicking!

Cam
