Holy crap. That’s a LOT of stats. How hard was it to compile all this? This is awesome to see, excellent work!
I really like the Corp variety, almost balanced in the tournament. Ass-ton of the Kate faction, oops, I mean Shaper.
It wasn’t too bad - 12 Kate to 5 CT and 2 Hayley. Kate had a big majority, but not overwhelmingly so. Lack of experience with Hayley left her on the sidelines, I guess.
Looks like Corps are still generally stronger in play, likely due to RP and Caprice Nisei, I suppose. Of 47 splits, 32 went to the corp, and the corporation overall had 128 wins out of 223 games played.
Anarchs did best against Jinteki and Weyland, and were underdogs against HB and NBN. Criminals were strong all around until they ran into Weyland - they might as well have stayed home. Shapers end up not being the most balanced this tournament! They did poorly against NBN and Jinteki, but were strong against Weyland. Looking just at these numbers, one would think Anarchs are the way to go to be in “every” match-up. But it doesn’t take into account IDs, which changes things dramatically. One may gulp at HB:EtF, but smile at HB:ST!
The player faction pairing chart is very interesting. I had never thought about it before, but I wonder if your faction choice on one side influences your faction choice on the other side?
Of the top 30% of corp decks, 42% were NBN. Jinteki and HB reach only 17% each. Startling numbers. Runner decks in the top 30% were quite balanced, with Shaper having a small lead.
This is awesome data, thank you so much for your time and effort, @CrimsonWraith! Stuff like this is great information for people prepping for tournaments, and looking to see what a potential meta might be like.
