Order of teams on the "teams" pageTechnical issuesIndex ->

I don't know how many people noticed, but the order of teams on the "teams" page has always been subtly wrong. The average rating number shown was correct: it is the average of the 4 highest-rated players on the team. The problem is that teams were not sorted using that number, but rather by the average of boards 1-4. Thus, a team could appear out of order in the list of teams if it had players on board 5 or 6 who were higher rated than players on board 1-4, which is allowed because of the 50-point flexibility we grant in the order of boards.

I've just fixed this problem.

I never noticed. This would have been a wonderful exploit. :(
