INPF Football (Soccer) League - Season IV

Käpt'n Korky

Recommended Posts

Good day again, fellow captains,

and again I'm back with a new season of the league.

Each Walküre I could reasonably pin a team in a national league to, gets a place on the two tables. No one dropped out for that reason technically.
However Axum and Rawalpindi ceased to exist for now, both for a plethora of horrible circumstances I hope end soon in their respective home countries.
While Axum was erased for that reason pretty much at the start of last season, Rawa managed a few matches and thus gets cut out now. 
Profiteers of this are Antoniotto Usidimare, who gets into INPF 2 as a fourth promotion is possible because of it. Subsequently, this only saves Maille Breze, but not Dehli and Maury.
Since Bolzano's and Velasco's teams managed to both get into a national level league (2nd tier in both cases) and Ettore Fieramosca was kept in reserve: Congrats to the INPF3 entry, but this ofc meant the INPF 3 relegation spots were actually *hot*. And only Axum and Rawa giving way, saved the best of the relegatees. And that was MB.

Rules are the established ones.
If I could've attached more than one team I chose reasonably among the possible ones. (*still sighs at Moskva*)
I will update ideally once a week (usually after Bundesliga matchdays. Yes, Bias.).
Pointing is according to matchday outcome. 
A win gets 3 points, a draw 1 point and a loss 0.
In case of equal points I will weigh in the strength of the league and if same league the actual position on the actual table. 
At the end of the season (I'm thinking 31st of June atm) I bring all teams up to 38. This reflects a "normal" season in worldly football and it has been proven that even this might be a bit challenging for some teams to accomplish. Teams with fewer than the quota of matches will get their missing matches filled up with the average points of their last 10 matches. This also means, teams with less than 10 matches I could find will be eliminated at the end of the season.
Worst three of table one relegate to table 2 and the top three of table 2 get promoted to table 1.

Check out most teams here.
Applications for missed teams only via discord. Ships in Shiros magnificent list are eligible as well as newly confirmed ones, since Shiro seems a bit busy and can't update.
No big changes since season 3.
Seriously: If you miss anyone, tell me below. I'm losing a bit of oversight.

Belfast rule: If I find too little results, I will count both men and women results to get a good and honest result from that club. First time I did it was with Belfast, hence the name.

Green on the INPF 1 table is champion, red is relegation. Green on the INPF 2 table is promotion, red relegation. Green on INPF 3 means promotion, red means possible benching for next season. In both leagues blue teams have ended the season by reaching the respective match limit. Yellow teams are dormant for the time being.

It's already September, but don't think I have forgotten or given up!

If you usually don't do it, please read the initial post carefully for a few changes and yes, to allow me to be lazy on the topic, the clubs will now all be described in season three for my and your convenience. Saves me some time and I know a few are still missing. Like the entire INPF 3, me thinks.

Anyways, on to the first matchday. All matches after July 1st are eligible so there might be some hefty scores for some coming in right from the start.
Matchday was so huge, I had to change dormat for direct matches. So they're in three columns and colour coded.

Direct matches:
Kumano 1
:0 Kongou                            Kongou 2:3 Kumano                Moskva 0:2 Leningrad
Arizona 0:0 Nevada                             Kitakami 1:3 Takao                     Stewart 2:1 Lexington
Saguenay 4:0 Lexington                    Recruit 2:1 Lexington              Augusta 2:1 Salt Lake City
Houston 1:2 Wichita                         Gneisenau 0:4 Scharnhorst           Canarias 1:0 Velasco
Recruit 2:1 Augusta                            Augusta 1:2 Recruit                    Augusta 1:4 Stewart
Stewart 0:0 Augusta                          Chiyoda 2:0 Tenryuu               Chiyoda 3:0 Yubari
Chiyoda 2:0 Aoba                              Saguenay 0:1 Recruit               Lexington 0:1 Saguenay
Aoba 2:1 Yubari                                  Takao 0:1 Nagato                          Nagato 1:1 Kaga
La Motte-Picquet 0:0 Marseillaise    Recruit 0:2 Stewart                  Shropshire 3:2 Exeter
Cossack 2:
0 Moskva                             Moskva 1:1 Cossack 


The champion Conte di Cavour lives up to expectations and start with a solid 13/15 points matchday, immediately showing off who's ready to defend her title. Kongou has more trouble though and starts with a disappointing 7/15 matchday. Belfast, like probably most British Walküren, has a) a looooot of points to gain and b) one match postponed over the death of her old sovereign. However she puts up a serious 35/39 start, which already makes her a) eligible for a valid end result and b) incredibly tough to crack for everyone else. She's out for the title this time for sure! Let's talk about Kongou's troubles a bit more or as she calls herself: Kumano. She is undefeated yet and throws her hat with 13/15 into the ring. Sailing far rockier waters around the Magellan strait is Admiral Graf Spee. This results in her having her usual good, but unstable performance ending in a 31/51 start, netting 4 less points as Belfast in 4 more matches. While Leningrad and Moskva are banned from FIFA matches, they play domestically and Leningrad cuts through the cup and league like a hot knife through butter. In 14 matches played, she even beats Belfast on points and her sister directly for now with 38/42 points. La Motte-Picquet could've earned 24 points, but only scores 10. Subpar, but probably not dangerously low and the season just started. Moskva has more than double that, but her sister wasn't the only one giving her a bloody nose, making her debut a 22/39 points start. Next up is our first US Belle: Arizona! But with being the first one gaining less than one point per match on average as she manages 11/36, she's in for a rocky season. But she is immediately underbid by Tenryuu, who docks after the first cruise with 5/36 and probably some bruises. Lexington fares comparatively better and at least got one point per match on average with 14/42, but loses all direct matches involving other Walküren. Exeter highlights how crazy English match calendars are. She already has finished half her matches and got a decent 25/57 to show for. Kitakami shows a mediocre performance joining the "less than one point" club, loosing against Takao in the process. As usual Algerie starts with only a handful of matches, but a hopeful 5/12 points, avoiding said club. Salt Lake City joins her US sister represented by a MLS team and makes 14/42. Houston, ever struggling, manages to get a comparatively good start this time (15/30). Parishkaya Kommuna has a rocky start, but avoids the relegation spots with 9/24 points. And here come the new ones. The promotees and since Gneisenau's club got promoted slightly above its punch weight, Gneisenau already struggles hard with a 10/12 start. She got wrecked hard by Scharnhorst, who she meets for the first time in a fight despite being freshly separated from her here. Canarias has a similar encounter with Velasco, but manges to beat her, contributing to her avoiding relegation zone for now with 8/24 points. Last, but not least comes Augusta and she battles a lot of her comrades, beating only SL City, but still raking in 21/51 at least.


The lower tiers start with the poor lasses who got relegated ofc. Chiyoda shows the other Kamimaru where the Tenno resides, but apart from that her start is rather mixed and in the end she makes 18/33 points. Verdun also has a mixed start and makes with 21/42 three more points in three more matches. Perth starts the season with not starting. In Down Under the seasons are weirdly scheduled. She'll join on October, promise. Saguenay rams into this trio of relegators with 30/45 points, as she makes a very respectable 2points per match cut. Nürnberg in contrast has a moderate start by matches, but 9/12 points is far from moderate. Maybe this year she'll have a good season? Next up is Aoba, in football terms probably the arch rival of Chiyoda in INPF 2. But after a beating from her she makes a slightly weaker start, despite beating Yubari as well. Takao struggles a bit to get her season started as she makes almost only 1 point per match with 15/42. Enter Lady Hood. Of all things, she matches the performance of Verdun. Meanwhile the far superior battleship Scharnhorst also has the superior result with three more points from two less matches, beating her sister severly on the cruise. Argonaut shows a performance complimentary to her 10th place from last season with 18/30 points. A similarily decent reward of points gets Zulu by making 14/27. Bearn makes it only slightly worse with 13/33. Worse quote, but only one point behind. Which brings us to the first contender with less points than matches under her belt: Kaga. She managed to wring at least 9/36 points out, but that is a dangerously weak start. Almost the opposite performance is shown by Köln. She manages 13/15 which is a very good quota, but with too few matches in comparison. Back with the final Kamimaru Nagato and she shows a very similar performance to the others. Will the IJN again lump together? That said the only US Belle backed by a US team in INPF 2 enters the fight with a powerful 24/33 start, leaving her mark for relegation aspirations after almost getting relegated last season. And talking about relegations: The four(!) promoted teams join the season. Manchester has a slow an 1 point quota start with 3/9 points in only three matches. Orion struggles as well with a weak 6/24 start, but at least she has already twice as much points as Manchester. Unlike Nubian. She punches almost through the table and makes a very strong 26/30 points. But just when you think nothing can surprise you..... comes Antoniotto Usidimare dancing in, smashing, posh and with a perfect 54/54 to her name! Boom! Undisputed table lead. And already almost half the season under her belt!


The lowest tier starts, akin to the 2nd with the relegatees from 'above'. The first of those is Pola. She has moderate success an makes 12/30 points. Dunkerque comes in with a similar result with 13/21 points. Nevada also roams around their waters with 12/36. Marsellaise has a bigger kickstart, both in matches an points as she manages 24/45 points. True to being a busy British Belle, Edinburgh throws in 18 matches already and manages to gain a respectable 29/54. Stewart also has a very big kickstart, but fares even better than Edinburgh. She also achieves this by basically beating almost every other US Belle on her way and thus raking in a very solid 35/45 points. In contrast Volta just got started and made 1/6 points. Certainly in a dangerous place. But she literally just got started. Just like Edinburgh, Sheffield comes in with 18 matches, but makes 33/54 out of it, thus setting in well ahead of her. Nashvilles performance is only remarkable as she avoids every other US Belle, her points budget however is an unremarkable 21/45 points. Recruit on the other hand crossed blades with a lot of other US Belles. But overall her score is good, as she made 28/57. Henley, while being on literally another level in real live and thus not seeing any US/US action, starts the season with a good 24/39. Back in England, Southampton makes an okay 15/39 in contrast. The only Kamimaru in this league, Yubari, also has a rocky start with 12/33 points. Queen Mary only had her first match and lost, giving her the dead last as first position of the season. Shropshire has already much more matches under her sheperds stick, but despite beating INPF 1's Exeter, that victory is more of an oddity and she only gets 17/51 points. Cossack on the other hand has an excelent start, beating Moskva once on the way, making this the only mixed fleet battle this matchday. In the end she comes in with a sweet 34/45 count. Evading elimination for this season only on a technicality, Maille Breze seemingly got her act together and at least collected already 50% of her last seasons count with 19/45, being clear of relegation for now. The batch of newcomers gets started modestly with Ettore Fieramosca only making 6 points, but from only 2 matches so far. So basically on a perfect score. Bolzano in comparison is with less than 1 point (8/27) perm match much more endangered to leave again for next year. Finally Velasco squares off with Canarias, loses and does that a bit more often and such can only get 12/36 points. Not great, but enough for now. And actually getting the most points of all necomers for now.

With Hallloween over over here and thus October having passed, let's see what it did to our INPF Belles.

Direct matches:
Lexington 2:1 Augusta                                    Houston 1:2 Wichita                                  Lexington 0:1 Saguenay
Arizona 3:1 Augusta                            La Motte-Picquet 1:1 Marseillaise                          Kitakami 1:1 Nagato
Kitakami 1:3 Kaga                                          Hood 1:0 Sheffield                                        Argonaut 2:1 Orion
Leningrad 3:1 Cossack                                 Moskva 3:1 Cossack                               Maille Breze 0:3 Marseillaise
Maille Breze 1:2 La Motte-Picquet

INPF 1: 
As table leader Leni opens the fray. She walks in with 16/21 points, pushing the benchmark to 54 already. Belfast should've had also 7 matches, but one is currently frozen for reasons I don't know, so she had six matches but won them all. Therefore she now breathes down Lenis neck only one point behind. AGS is not quite that lucky as she has had a few losses, but she had 9 matches and got a still impressive 18/27 to show for it. Exeter is cjust finished her tenth match and gets 14/30 points acquired, which puts her in an even weaker position for the title race than AGS. Moskva had a small phase of weakness, but overcame it apparently still reaping 13/21 points from this matchday.
Since a lot of USN Belles are coming up: US season is almost finished with only the MLS finale open next week. 
Augusta failed to score with two defeats, one of which was againast Lex. So 0/6 for her. Her compatriot Houston fared a bit better. Despite losing against Wichita, she still got at least 3/9 points for her efforts. Apropos 'despite'. Despite beating Augusta, Lexington fared only little better and sees 4/9 points after losing against Saguenay. Salt Lake Citys season finale was also mediocre and she comes into drydock with 4/15 points. With current Champion Conte, the last of the classic heavy hitters comes with a thick 9 matches matchday fully into this season and adds 18/27 points to her score, jumping the "US gap" in one go, coming into touch with the lead group. Kumano seems to head into an at least stable season for once as she comes back with 4 points from 4 matches. Arizona failed to get into the USL playoffs, so she is done already as almost all other USN Belles, but she beat Augustas 2nd team. And herl ast push was a solid 10/18 points, serving her well for the INPF. For some weird reason I overlooked several matches of LMP last time...... so now she crashes into the table with 14 matches at once. And crashing she does. From the lower table half very well into the upper echelon amidst the title fight for this season. She lost none and brings home 34 of 42 possible points. Against Marseille she draws. Gneis manages at least 10/18 points an continues to struggle, but at least lands comfortably in the USN block. Kitakami on the other hand endangers herself very much with only 1 points in 6 matches. Her only point resulting from a draw against Nagato. P-K fares better, get 5 of 15 points and gets past Kitakami farther into safety. After a slow start, Canarias consolidates her season with 8 matches at once and 10 points out of them. Kongou however makes it more alike to P-K and comes home with 5/15. Algerié had two matches postponed, but managed 6/9 points. So the bottom part is as exciting as the top this year. Expecially with Tenryuu also closing the score rank with 4/12 points.

The middle class start with Toni and her 24 points headstart! And with 21/27 points she keeps up the immense pressure. What a run! This said, Saguenay comes up and leaves for the winter like all North American Belles her season is done for now. After beating Lexington, she won a few times more coming in with 12/15 points. Nubian got 3 matches postponed, but played 4. However, with 3 matches missed and 6/12 her efforts are a bit slowed. Wichita may be NWSL vice-champion, but she is out for now and comes to port with 9/15 points for this matchday. Scharnhorst misses her chance to get past anyone with just okay 7/18 points. Verdun manages to beat Bearn, but that's about it. With only 4/12 points the distance to the top group opens up. Lady Hood however not only has a big matchday, but brings home 14/24 points, with beating Sheffield in between. That's an impressive rise into the top group. Argonaut  however not only beats Orion, but also manages 18/21 points, which catapults her even harder up into the promotion fight and past Hood. Chiyoda enters the final stretch of her first half of the season with a relaxed 6/12 points. Aoba also makes a rather mixed 7/15 points.  Nagato equally smoothly sails into the winter break with 7/15 points. This region truly has nothing to do with the promotion nor the relegation fight. Takao on the other hand has a devastating season finale with 0/15 points. Dropping her stern quite a few places. Zulu makes a few, but she makes points. 8/21. Same goes for Köln and her 6/15 result. Apart from her defeat against Verdun, Bearn brings home a very solid 10/15 points and swooshes up. Nürnberg even manages to get past the devastated Takao with only 7/15 points and 10 matches less. Kaga has a big 7 match season halftime break run and brings home very solid 12/21 points. Maybe decisive points which will save her later. In the danger zone, Orion already lost against against Argonaut, but at least limps home with 7/18 points. Not into safety, but at least in striking distance to the shore. Manchester fares much better and after a very, very slow start, she now gets herself away from immediate danger with 15/24 points. At last, Perth also gets going, but she has barely steam as she only manages to secure 3/12 points as a start.

The lower house begins with a finalist. Stewarts team stands in the MLS final this year, which will be held in a few days. This means she is not only the non-dormant USN Belle, but also had a perfect 15/15 score. After a very strong start, Cossack lost to both Leni and Moskva and had an overall below the weather matchday. Only 7/21 points for her. Same goes for her immediate contender Sheffield who not only lost to Hood, but also only got 6/21 points home. Now one would think, Eddie would see this and use it, but she also makes just 7/24, thus being even worse than the two English Belles in front of her. Recruit also falls behind as she only gets 3 points out of her season break run up. Henley has also a less than stellar pre-break run, but with 6/15 points she can at least close in on Recruit. With Marsellaise now up next comes a potential heavy weight. 8 matches aaaannnnnd..... she wipes the floor with Maille Breze and actually sweep past the USN Belles right into the promotion fight. But 10/24 is not a clean sheet by a long shot. Nashville gets 6 points and then a good rest. Which is more than M-B gets. Because she gets nothing and the cozy feeling of fearing for her stern dropping straight into the kill zone. Both Marseillaise and LMP beat her on the way down. Lucky for her, Shropshire only scores 1/9 and stays behidn her. But closer. However, others aren't as nice. Southampton only scores 5/18, but gets past both. Same goes for the even better Dunkerque, which scores 9/15 and also does no good to M-Bs nerves. Pola also uses this golden opportunity with 8/15 points. Even the really bad placed Yubari gets past M-B on matches with 7/15. And the horror for Shropie and M-B just doesn't stop. Nevada sails into port, but does so in front of both as she hauls in a respectable 8/15 final catch. That said, Velasco seems to have found her rhythm this season and suddenly sails at steady speed and with 10/21 away from the kill zone for now. Even Bolzano adds to the horror trip of M-B and Shropie. With 11/15 points she suddenly bursts with power away from the kill zone. And talking about the kill zone: Ettore is in it prior to this matchday. But with 12/15 she hints at enourmos potential and the will to at least remain in the league. Volta also shows some skill with 7/12 points, but ultimately lags so much behind on matches, she remains in the red. Very much akin to Queen Mary, who makes 12/18 points, at least marking her ability to compete.

So, with the long, long winter break over. More or less monthly updates will resume.

Look at what happened since November:

Direct Matches:
Parishkaya Kommuna 4
:2 Dunkerque            Cossack 2:1 Moskva                Velasco 1:1 Canarias       Queen Mary 1:2 Southampton 

Queen Mary 1:2 Manchester

Last time Leni fought off Belfast and kept her table lead. This time she again plays a strong matchday with 15/18 points. But that's not enough for today! Her contender #1 makes 20 points, but oh what a long way she needed. Look at the new match count dicrepancy. Belfast's hope is all but slim. AGS, for now, takes it slow, but has a perfect 3 matches matchday. Maybe slow and steady wins the race? LMP on the other side shows off a huge performance. Of 36 possible points she gets 26 and shoots past AGS and now Leni and secures second place. But she now also has very little left in terms of matches. Since English leagues tend to stop for no one, Exeter easily manages to get her last 10 matches under her belt. And she's finished. Look at it and make your bets you deep she will be pushed down. Her relatively mediocre performance, means she can't keep up with the top 4 at all. Moskva quietly plays on and 7/15 is not nothing, but also not much and the defeat by Cossack certainly doesn't help her mood. Conte had a bit of real world trouble recently and not a perfect match record here, but she has made an impressive harvest of 31/42 points. This brings her back up into the top group of the table, where she is a well known guest. Next active Belle is Gneis. Nice. But 7 points in 7 matches is less nice. It pushes her at least past the defenseless US Belles in front of her. Canarias has a matchday like Conte, but only makes 20/41 points. At least enough for a quiet midfield spot. P-K actually not only manages to beat INPF 2 Dunkerque, but doesn't loose a single match, thus bringing home 23/27 points. This shoots her up from lowest bracket firmly into safe space. Algerié wasn't that good, but with 14/27 good enough to escape the danger zone. For now. Since all Belles (US and IJN) below her are inactive for now.

The middle ground gets comfortably topped off by shooting star AntUsi. She came straight outta 3rd division and now rockets with 100 points as final count into 2nd league. Probably a record for the ages. You do the math if she can even mathematically be intercepted anymore. I guess not. Which brings us to Argonaut for now. She takes a severe performance hit and can only add 4/18 points to her tally. This opens up a big opportunity for her pursuers. First and foremost Lady Hood. The Lady doesn't ask twice and brings her tally from over 30 to over 50 points by adding 18/39 points to her name. Nubian however surpasses even that and with bringing an amazing 39/45 points to her name. Scharnhorst also makes it past Argonaut with adding 11/24 to her tally, but with such a mediocre run that currently just basically keeps her in the league. Verdun on the other hand has a whooping 14 matches under her matchday belt and the harvest was plenty. With a 27/42 reward  she now creeps up behind Hood and threatens her position with three more matches to go. Her compatriot Béarn had a slightly smaller matchday, with 11 matches. But with 15/33 she may look safe for now, but a lot of inactive Belles will want to have a word with her later in the season. Zulu however shows weakness. Her 6/18 only gets her past Chiyoda who can't do much about it. But even this can be underperformed as Köln shows. She makes only 4 points with also 6 matches and doesn't even pass Chiyoda. With this in mind we meet another two digit matchday Belle: Manchester! And boy does she have a run. After a so and so start into the season, she now catapults herself from the lower bracket into the promotion fight with an impressive 29/33 performance. Somethign Nürnberg certainly can't say about herself. Her ladies have only four matches and strike off half the points. At least she gets above Aoba. In the danger zone we start with Orion. She has a huge 13 matches matchday, but also disappoints heavily. She only ties with Kaga and Aoba, failing to even sack Nürnberg and thus stay in a precarious situation. Last, but no longer least, comes Perth. She brings home 15 points of 30 possible, which is certainly not the worst performance of the day and enables her to be counted as she finally gets past the 10 matches minimum. So now the race to the bottom is really on.

Since Stewart is at port, Cossack kicks off the matchday. And quite well. 15/18 points and a victory against Moskva would've granted her the spot at the sun for now, if Sheffield wouldn't finish her season in one go. And with quite the run. in 13 matches she is dealt only one defeat and two draws and thus is now firmly at the top. And done. Her fellow townclass sister Eddie is not quite as lucky and finishes her seasno with a mixed bag, earning her 57 points total. Marsellaise makes a solid run and gets 28 points to her name. She places herself thus firmly in the promo race bracket. Dunkerque has a mixed matchday, overtakes the inactive Belles in front of her and starts the midfield. Velasco meets with Canarias and a lot of other teams and can't quite get a grasp on the situation. 12 points in 12 matches is hopefully enoug hto avoid elimination. Pola struggles as usual, but manages to make at least 8/18 points. Which is good by her standards. In the actual INPF 3 match Southampton keeps the upper hand and manages to get from the bottom of the midfield, to the top of it. EtFi gets a solid 18/30 points under her belt and also cracks the 10 match mark, thus avoiding auto-elimination for sure. Her compatriot Bolzano starts with a lot of draws. But a point is a point is a point and she keeps up with the pack at least. The danger zone starts with Maille Breze and she can only reaps 7/36 points, so she stays in acute danger. Especially since Shropshire makes clearly more than 7 points and leaves the others in the bilge. Which brings us to Queen Mary who loses not only against Southampton, but also Manchester. Over all she at least keeps up with Shropshire, but both might be in very false safety. Volta, as African Celle, finally gets her season fully going and firmly places herself in the fight with a solid show of power, keeping the fight for the death interesting.

Well, those who made it here probably know what's up with the game and why I had little time to come here to finish season 4 and start season 5.

But to not leave things unfinished, I will wrap up atleast season 4 in the shortest way possible:

INPF1:  In the end Leningrad won. Probably due to her playing only national matches, because of the war, but so be it.
Most dramatic position change in the last matches was made by Canarias who almost dropped into relegation from 8th. 
Her counterpart is Kumano who jumped from 17th way up.
The three relegatees are: Kitakami, as the only Belle with less than 1 point per match, Tenryuu and Arizona with a very tight 0,1 points behind Houston.

INPF2: With her almost perfect run Antoniotto Usidimare was unstoppable to grab a promo spot. Behind her, Nubian left nothing to chance and followed her. However for third place there was a sudden drop in Hoods performance and while it looked at first as if Manchester would get it, in the end Nürnberg snatched 3rd place away from her.
Both Nürnberg, with securing a promotion from 15th place and Takao, jumping from last into ver much safety made impressive gains.
On the contrary, Hood was the most dramatic drop.
For relegation Orion, Perth and Kaga are sent down, with Orion being the only Belle in this league with less than one point per match.

INPF 3: While it is debatable who made the biggest move (see below), it is very clear that Ettore Fieramosca comes from the midfield and played an almost impeccable season in the end, thus easily taking the top spot way ahead of Stewart and Sheffield, the other two promoted Belles.
And while it is clear EF jumped most successfully, Queen Mary's jump from relegation or Dunkerques jump at least in points are impressive as well and it is debatable who made the biggest jump.
The biggest drop however and with the most consequences has happened to Southampton. From almost promotion she crashed right out of the league system, where she will be joined by Nevada and Maille Breze.

And for very funnky reasons only for INPF 1 the points sorted correct. Hence why I only post rank for 2 +3
