Visualizing WDS Scores

Discussion in 'PlanetSide 2 Gameplay Discussion' started by Flashtirade, Oct 4, 2013.

    Table of scores that I'm using (I'll update this maybe once a day)

    Just interpreting pure numbers isn't a pleasant undertaking. Pictures are easier to look at and to understand.
    In this thread, I'll be making graphs of the WDS scores. I'll take a few requests, with some limitations:
    1. I do not have access to scores from Week 1 or Week 2. I'm using numbers from the official display here, so I can't visualize anything that it doesn't show:!/wds
    2. I HAVE ACCESS TO NOTHING BUT SCORES. I cannot tell you how many alerts were won, or how many territories or capped. In fact, I don't know SOE's scoring algorithm either. Do not ask me for this information, because I don't have it.
    3. I'm not doing daily scores. Way too much fluctuation per day, plus they'd be a total pain to make graphs of constantly.

    Examples using scores from earlier today (click for full size):[IMG]

    The average and standard deviations are for comparison purposes. I will leave the interpretations up to you forumsiders.

    The Cuil Theory makes my hamburger want to dance while I fall up an escalator shaft. Makes my day. I give you a hamburger.

    A library in Phoenix disapproves.

    Scores have been updated.

    • Up x 4
  6. Flashtirade

    Scores have been updated.
    Here are a few graphs. I am still taking requests.
    Also I just realized that the first two charts above have the wrong date on them, it should be October (10) not September (09).

    E: added graphs

    Once again, average and standard deviations are for comparison purposes.

  8. Flashtirade

    Scores have been updated.

    Still taking requests.

    A special note: I'm going to be taking a special sampling today to measure the growth in scores on Saturday, a day that generally has more activity than the weekdays. From last night's update to this morning's, each faction saw an increase of about 2000-3000 points. I would like to see how big the increases are over more active periods.
    This new data will be added to the google doc as a new sheet once the sampling is complete.

    Scores have been updated. Final Week 3 results were calculated by adding the change in total scores to the most recent sample I took last night.

    The special sampling period is over, results will be shown sometime soon.

    Still taking requests.

    Okay I got this finished way later than I thought.
    A few things to note:
    1. I didn't get the sample I wanted at 1200 minutes because that would have been 4AM for me.
    2. I also didn't get the sample at 0 minutes because I accidentally overwrote the scores before taking them into account.
    3. These numbers are additions to numbers taken from the previous period. I will release a graph showing the cumulative gains if requested.

    E: ***************** it should say October 5, not 4

    Ohh cool, If I'm reading this right Woodman NC is the second highest scoring NC behind Ceres.
  12. Flashtirade

    This is true over the week, but not true for yesterday. I think you have some weekday warriors to thank.
  13. Nintyuk

    Well I was playing all week except Friday and Saturday, I think on Monday was when I helped lead a platoon past the TR warpgate.
  14. Flashtirade

    Scores have been updated.
    Week 4 has been added as a new sheet.
    I'm going to take an almost-weekly sample from Monday to Saturday (well really Sunday morning) this week to get a snapshot on score growth rates on each server.
    And I'm surprised about the lack of requests.

    Week 3 contributions to WDS coming soon.

    Scores have been updated.
    Second sample has been taken. *It should have been "week-long" instead of "weekly" two posts before.
  17. Flashtirade

    Scores have been updated.
    At the midway point of the week now, and TR are ahead by a significant margin yet again.
