3 way tie for Playoff seeding

How do we break a 3 way tie for playoff seeding in head to head playoff tiebreaker when the teams did not play each other an equal number of times?

 

Team 1 - 1609 points 2 wins and 2 losses v 3 tied teams - 2-0 v team 2

Team 2 1584 points - 1 win 2 losses v 3 tied teams - 1-0 v Teem 3

Team 3 1535 points - 2 wins and 1 loss v 3 tied teams - 2-0 v Team 1

The H2H setting chosen by the commish only applies to ties in playoff games.  It has nothing to do with seeding.

H2H results are not used when selecting teams for playoff seedings.

 

If you do not have divisions and there is a tie, the team with the most points scored wins.

 

In the case of 3 teams, the team with the most is first, second most is second and third most is 3rd.

Thanks for the response.  The commissioner changed the settings to head to head to determine playoff seeding.  So we are stuck with trying to determine how to seed with an uneven number of games.

Why would the commissioner change it to head  2 head? I never understood head to head as a tiebreaker. It should always come down to most points for as a tiebreaker. I mean it's only fair that the team that scored the most get in. Also there is no confusion like there is in your league.
