POS   TEAMNAME   PLD   W   D   L   RW   RL   RD   BP   LVL   PTS
4   Germany           6      4   0   2   52   15   37   52   4   12
5   North America   6   4   0   2   54   27   27   40   4   12

So NA didn't get to the 2018 semi-finals even though they had more RW, because RL? Like I can see that BP is the determining factor but what is BP and how was it calculated?

BP is Bucholz score and is calculated based on the difficulty of the opponents a team faced. It’s useful in a league stage (particularly one where you got to pick your opponents) because it somewhat equalises the fact that some teams have harder matches each week than others. In NC18 I’m pretty sure BP was the sum of the PTS of every team faced.

k, I think I understand. Poland went 5w-1L and turkey went 6w-0L during NC2018. So what you're saying is that had any team won against poland or turkey when they were at 4 wins or 5wins they would have earned more BP because those teams had proven themselves tough to beat during the competition? But since you could only pick from those below you... I suppose you had to hope that someone higher up picked you and then you won against them for the upset and the BP? .... hmm if I was a EU team I'd likely avoid picking NA... why pick a team where you might play on a server with terrible ping.
