A little somethin (L4D2, all current players please view)

Post by Neelpos » Wed Apr 23, 2014 5:31 am

Had another incident with player balance last night, in which the game was ended prematurely as everyone got mad and left. The idea was posed to figure out a player ranking system to help with team balance in the future. Seems kind of offputting to me, and it may not be very encouraging to the players at the bottom of the list, but I'm a terrible person who hasn't taken a math course in four years and doing a stat comparison sounded fun.

So with Nightwolfs help I built up a google doc using the L4D2 stats for each player accessible from their profile, taking into account the players management of health items, total games played, percentage of games won, infected killed per hour etc. etc. The end result is something kinda neat, but not really viable, plus while I used to be great at math, like I said I haven't had a course since 2010, I'm an art major the fuck am I gonna do with statistics. The math's kinda fucked up and ends up placing Rushie Slushie as the third best player on the server because of his unusually high game win percentage (he's played 8 rounds total). Plus the list is missing something valuable, a players ability to work with their team.

Like I said the idea of discouraging the players at the lower end of the list isn't my intention, but I'm torn because a general idea of where some players lie could help, especially since every time we do team captains we inevitably have one captain who's unsure who to pick. Not me though. I'm always judging you guys. Like all the time. Maybe I could just reveal the top players and have everyone else in neutral territory, or not even release the list, I'll figure something out.

Anyways if you want to help me finish this thing off here's a survey with all the players Nightwolf and I could remember to add, go ahead and rate players on it and I'll average the results to see if I can't figure something out. If you can math and are interested just message me saying you want to math and I'll let you take a look at the thing to do better math than my math.

Release the list and make sure I'm on it. I'm the best and I need proof.

I can confirm with the current broken math Ian7 is nowhere near Rush.

Plus your game win rate is 41%, step it up bro.

Spamming 1 for every single player is the exact opposite of helpful, guys, you've made it so literally only three people ranked above average, and only by half a point maximum.

It's also very telling when the most notoriously abrasive mic user who plays with us is scoring in the top 8 for teamwork, willingness to cooperate and proper mic usage.

oops, just realized i did mine backwards. I thought 1 was the highest, and 10 was the lowest.

Last in what? I haven't posted the list. The survey in the main post is alphabetized and meant for you to give feedback on each players communication and teamwork.

5 Fraudulent votes have been purged for the polls for intentionally voting 1 on nearly every single name. Did I mention this site logs the IP's of each vote?

Don't tamper with the poll.
