May as well, everyone else is doing it!
This summer we cranked through another couple thousand rounds of simulations to get a new and improved algorithm for the WrestleStat rankings. The 2 major components that were changed and implemented were 1) incorporating the RPI into the algorithm, and 2) moving the 14-match equilibrium to a “per-season” basis. The reason for this change is for the wrestlers that make big improvements later in their careers.
Now that these changes have been applied, we updated both of the dual and tournament rankings. If you’ve looked at the rankings at all this summer, then you’ll notice the difference at the top/#1.
Here they are:
