As far as I know (because I haven't heard anything to say it's been changed), the grouping system will go only final positions - Gropus A will have the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th team in it, and Group B the other four.
As for selection of tied teams, all ISL competitions use the same rules to seperate teams 1. points 2. wins 3. Goal Difference 4. Goals Scored 5. Record Between The Two Teams. This has always been so, and should continue into the play-offs. I know some Storm fans felt that they hadn't been knocked out by us when tied on points, seeing as you had *just* edged us 12-4 on aggregate, but the criteria was always wins first (not that in the end it mattered, as we got the two points in our game in hand). I've been winging most season ecause Teletext used to always get the tables wrong, using GD rather than wins. Very unprofessional.
