This is the latest edition of the Open Power Rankings for the 2018 season. The list was formed by a panel of 12 individuals, spanning all regions, who discuss the top contenders and then vote on the contenders using this prompt: “If these 30 teams played in 100 tournaments tomorrow, who on average would place the best?”. Panelists then rated teams on a scale of 1-10, with the best team on the contender list given a “10” and the worst given a “1”. The highest and lowest score for each team was removed before averaging the final scores.
