    If you're that skeptical then just look at the overall because that does provide the other figures for kills and users seperately.

    I have been doing and I have found some variances. The variances are small in nature. But when multiplied by 21 days on every single weapon it soon adds up to some big variances in not only the grand totals, but also in the sheet totals. I have also found issue with the formulas used in the sheet totals that has also created some big variances.

    Just found another issue where the Gauss SPR averages are divided by 27 days instead of 21, thus lowering the NC average.

    What sheet, row and column? Good catch.

    Yup, you're right- thanks for the spot, I missed that one in when I ran my double check.

    Correct figures should be average kills 2188.43; average users 348.19; overall average KPU 6.25; average BR 38.75; average 1-25 KPU 5.12; average 25-50 KPU 5.46; average 50-75 KPU 8.69; average 75-100 KPU 17.30

    Thanks again for that catch. I have not yet run any analyses and honestly I mean no offense but the passage does not seems to be referring to variance.

    Here is an example after I completely reworked a few of the sheets for myself. While each weapon on each day was only a few decimal places out in its reported figures. Comparing these figure to those on the google docs shows that it soon adds up. And in some cases has drastic changes in the overall figures.

    Another error found. On the sheet totals sheet, row 90 is calling data from the wrong sheet. It is calling data from the MAX AV left arm sheet, when it should be calling it from the MAX AV right arm sheet. Thats about 100,000 kills which was removed from the VS total due to that error.

    Yeah, I never bothered double checking the total totals, only those in the individual sheets by type. When I go to analyze I am not bringing in any of the aggregate data, far easier to let SAS or SPSS generate that kind of information from the raw data. Seems better to restrict ourselves to weapons within the same classes- just seems to make the things a lot clearer.

    Ok so you're 13.

    BTW piston is automatic

    ow yeah a BFG adapted from Doom 3 :D
  13. Aegie

    Ah, now I see what you meant.
  14. GhostAvatar

    Here is a copy that I have reworked.

    I have removed all quartile data as I can't verify it. Same with Harasser data. Technically I should do the same with average BR. But that is only really there for informational purposes. Plus I can work it backwards to get a reasonably accurate data point.

    Wow, great work- much appreciated.

    Just had to chime in and say this is ridiculous.

    How do you expect people to support a claim if not with data? Fairy tales? First of all you don't know that his conclusion is preconceived, it was likely made *because* of the data... but even if it was preconceived, if the data supports it, he still needs to say so.

    You make absolutely no sense with this statement.

    You were right to remove the harasser data, it was from a slightly longer time period - an additional 4 days, not a big deal but it's good to be consistent with the rest of the data.

    If you want to put it back, remove the additional days:

    One more note is that I don't include the first period in the harasser sheet, unlike the full data sheet you've reworked. The first period is an incomplete day. Not a big deal but again consistency.

    Sadly, the devs only listen to twits [sic] so perhaps all this is lost on them- someone with an account want to forward this thread to Higby please?

    What? There are people who claim NC is balanced or overpowered??? NC sucks. I started in november as NC, played ~100h, then quit the game because it was only frustrating: no organization, crappy equipment and underpopulated most of the time.

    Now i play TR, and NC still hasnt improved, they never win alerts and are often pushed back to the warpgate. Fighting NC is noticeably easier than fighting VS.
