While I think the current points system is a decent attempt at trying to rank teams more accurately or allow for teams that had some unfortunate matches to make playoffs, I don't think that a system where a 16-0 team could theoretically be lower seeded than a 9-7 team is a good one (this can happen if the 16-0 team won every match 5-4 (32 points), while the 9-7 team won all their matches 5-0 and lost all their matches 5-4 (34 points)). I think that if a team wins all their matches, they deserve to have the top seed (while this situation is really unlikely, I think that this extreme shows some of the issues with the current system). Also, a team's ability to be able to close out/win a match is, in my opinion, an important one that is more emphasized in win/loss rather than the current points system. If there were some changes to the points system that rewarded winning more, I think I would like it, but for now I think that using win/loss as the main ranking system and points as a tiebreaker system is better.
