Yeah I'm not a fan of the segment thing - they only started that a few years ago and I guess it gives you something to shoot for if you stink up the first part of the year, and I did win a 2nd or 3rd segment one season but it meant nothing IMO as I finished like 5th out of 12 in my league overall for the season, so, blah...
Rookie year here also. From what I have gathered, it really only matters where you stand within your individual league.
Unless of course you are competing for the whole ball of wax. I pay attention to both personally.
The Playoff rank is only for that segment of the whole year. IOW, for those ten races. Not unlike the spring and summer segments, it is no different really.
The full season rank, that is the more prestigious IMO.
For the Playoff Segment, I am currently ranked the lowest I have been ranked all year LOL. However my full season rank remained almost exactly the same.
Be more than happy to help further or supply more detail if needed.
Hope this helps.
