Who's the Best? A Mini-Analysis

Strategy, feedback, or anything SUBTERFUGE-related
Sun Apr 02, 2017 12:31 pm

  • Hi! I posted a small analysis a few weeks ago and I'd like to share another I just wrote. I used the concept of residuals to determine who is the best at their 'experience level' (ie number of rated games played). It's not a perfect way to analyze it, but it was fun to write up and put together. You can find it here:

    Let me know what you think!

  • Baer! Always edumicating us in the ways of Subterfuge
    This is pretty damn cool
    Although, I think I'm the best player in Subterfuge, not based on any statistics or mathematics though :lol:
    But seriously though, well thought out and well applied

    I have a question though: did you count the number of rated games they played, or the total number of games they played? That may change the statistical data

  • Nooo, at such an analysis my rank drops significantly :P

  • Wow! That's really cool. But now I'm worried about where I am. :shock:
    My faith has found a resting place,
    Not in device or creed;
    I trust the ever-living One,
    His wounds for me shall plead.
    I need no other argument,
    I need no other plea,
    It is enough that Jesus died,
    And that He died for me.

    appreciate it! seems like everyone here thinks they're the best...

    i did look at total games played vs number of rated games played. neither are great at explaining the rating of the player, but # of rated games played is slightly better. (r-squared = .1 vs r-squared = .07)

  • Data looks solid. Fascinating read. And goes to show the ratings are meaningless.


    Topkilla - Relax, data shows you win troll with biggest ego. Congratulations. ;)
