Winner takes all

Here's a ranking of all national teams according to their results in all competitions in History.

Methodology

  • The champion of a tournament earn the cumulative Elo points of all defeated participants (as they were determined just before the competition started).
  • If a tournament has more than 8 participants, the runner-up gets as well half of those points.
  • If a tournament has more than 16 participants, both semi-finalists (or teams ranked 3rd and 4th) gets as well a quarter of those points.
  • If a seat is shared, then both teams earns evenly the points which would be earned otherwise in the case each position would be distinguished (for instance 2 shared winners would earn each half the sum of the points that a single winner and a single runner-up would have earned otherwise).
