At the ascension ranking you can compare to other teams who got pole position in different leagues of the same division. Furthermore you can see, if someone’s team belongs to either the ascending teams, or the teams fighting relegation. The ascension ranking is only a current snapshot, as it will be binding after each season.
All teams above the mark, or placed even better, are the current direct ascending teams. All teams below the mark, with a worse goal/point difference have to face relegation.
Attention on the calculation: The ascension ranking will not be calculated in real-time, but re-calculated around midnight after the match day. So do not consider the results to be fix after your match!
