The seeding algorithm is calculated by:

The average of a players last 3 results from the last 7 NBVA tournaments.

If a player has played less than 3 tournaments their average will be derated by 10%

If a player does not have any results in the previous 7 NBVA tournaments, their previous seasons results will be taken into account and derated by 15% per season.

Your team seeding score is the average of both players points, the higher the number the better.
