|Ever go to a WFTDA game and the winners look sad and the losers are happy? Welcome to the skewed world of the WFTDA rankings calculator. Some skaters understand it and some ignore it, but if you ever want to be competitive in WFTDA, you need to understand how the numbers of the game are like the 15th player on the track. What are WFTDA rankings? There are currently 215 leagues that are competitively ranked throughout the world against each other. Each WFTDA sanctioned game that is played not only affects the leagues that play each other but they affect each of the 215 leagues throughout the world because our rankings are inter connected with each other. Each team is ranked numerically from 1-215 and given a strength score based on their past 12 month rolling history of games. The current #1 team in the world, Gotham, has a strength score of 4.25, whereas the lowest team, located at #215 of WFTDA, has only a strength score of 0.50.

This weekend was double the excitement for the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls (LVRG) as LVRG’s Blast Furnace Betties took on the Reading Derby Girls and LVRG’s Metal Vixens took on the Pottstown Roller Derby Rockstars.
The Blast Furnace Betties versus the Reading Derby Girls game quickly established LVRG as the dominant team. About 10 minutes into the first half, the Betties had a commanding lead over the Reading Derby Girls, 65-17. LVRG acquired lead jammer status the majority of the jams and continued to build the score to 91-19 with 15 minutes left in the first half of game play. LVRG lived up to their reputation for having strong defensive walls and aggressive jamming. At half time, the score was 149-38 favoring LVRG. Read more
Metal Vixens versus the Pottstown Roller Derby Rockstars
In the second game of the night, the LVRG’s Metal Vixens immediately were met with fierce competition against the Pottstown Roller Derby Rockstars (Pottstown). Although LVRG got a quick jump in points in the first few minutes of play (38-2), Pottstown was a definite threat with relentless jammers. LVRG was dominating in points, but it wasn’t reflective of the fight between both teams. 15 minutes into the first half of play, LVRG was up 56-9. However, most of points were gained through power jams and were not necessarily from jammer natural calls offs. A natural call off happens when both jammers are on the track, and the lead jammer strategically calls off the jam before the other jammer can gain points. Read more
