Love the work tick. I should note that the arrow points to the coin toss winner. So I won it 8 times and lost 4. Thus I was the away team 8 times. You have it that I won four times.

Did I really win 10 tosses? I played so many games against the same guy so we were just going back and forth.

I'll look at my script again later tonight. It's supposed to add up all the winners and losers of the coin tosses but maybe it's looking at the wrong data. I will straighten it out.

Yeah there was no way I won 7 tosses. I just checked the data, I won 4 and lost 9. 2 wins were because I replayed the same player, also 1 loss was from a DNP, so on "real" flips I went 2-8.

Awesome work! That had to have taken a while!

Awesome, thanks for doing this!

As others have mentioned, there's something funny with the coin tosses. It says I won 7 and lost 7, but I didn't play 14 games (i think I played 11).

Ok, the script wasn't counting up the coin toss winners correctly before. It's fixed now. I'll know for sure when halifax confirms it for me. Oh, and I'll note that the first entry, "Game Winners", compares the guy listed as Player 1 in the table with the guy listed as Player 2.

Great job man. Thanks for this. It's nice to see how it all played out. I know at some point, we're gonna rank all of the players based on how where they finished and overall record.

Interested to know the home/away split per team (and perhaps goal dif).

.. also winning percentage of the coin toss winner.

I wanted to follow up with some stats and thoughts of my own, even though some of this is the same information that tickenest already posted (albeit some slight differences on the results).  I also want to summarize some key points with bullets that I found interesting.  This is all for Genesis (sorry SNES guys).

  • There were 190 games played in the tournament.
    • Home teams were 89-101, Away 101-89. 
    • The away team was the coin flip winner.  This suggests the coin flip winner ended up with some advantage, despite being the road team.  Will be interesting to see if that trend continues in future tournies.
  • Average goals per game were ~4, which has been consistent in many Classic Leagues
  • All 26 teams were picked at least once, with ANH being picked the fewest (4) and BOS, CGY, and VAN each being picked the most at 26. 
  • STL (5-1) and FLA (6-2) had the best winning percentages.
  • ANH went 0-4, DAL 4-12, and TOR 8-16 for the bottom 3 worst records.

Here are the results by team:

 

 

As Tickenest noted above, the top picked matchups were:

 

  • CGY - VAN (6)  -- tied 3-3
  • HFD - NYI (6) -- tied 3-3
  • BOS - WPG (5) -- WPG 4-1
  • CGY - QUE (5) --  QUE 3-2

Now, I grouped the teams into tiers, based on team strength, and looked at matchups on a tier vs tier basis. 

 

  • 0 Tier Difference (same tier) - 85
  • 1 Tier Difference - 78
  • 2 Tier Difference - 23
  • 3 Tier Difference - 4
  • Total: 190

 

This makes sense as most people chose relatively close teams.  Now, we can argue which teams belong in what tiers, but I doubt we'd be off by 2 tiers, so anything 2 and 3 tiers different should have yielded lopsided results.

 

  • The 4 games played with a 3 tier difference (3 of them Pittsburgh, poor guys), the higher team tiers went 4-0.  Not surprising!
  • Of the 23 games played with a 2 tier difference, the higher tier teams went 18-5.  Again, as expected.
    • Of those 5 underdog wins, 4 of them were by '94 community members.  4 of the upsets were also 1 goal games!
      • Icestorm def. Brutus 9-2, QUE vs MTL, IceStorm won flip
      • Mikey_mac94 def. Terry F 3-2, STL vs QUE, Mikey_mac94 won flip
      • KGman def. CamKneely 2-1, PHI vs WPG, CamKneely won flip
      • AngryJay def. Zeppelin 7-6, PIT vs BOS, AJ won flip
      • Paul O. def Caio F 2-1, NYR vs MTL, Paul O. won flip
  • The 78 games played with a 1 tier difference resulted in higher tier teams going 38-40.  Basically even.

Cool :)

I was given a FLA-ANH matchup twice. Picked FLA both times and won (Vanbiesbrouk... and I've never seen someone have such bad luck as Icestorm had against me)

That makes me feel better smo :) but I honestly though you played a great game. Giving up a 3-0 lead in that matchup is hard to do

Was going to post a Gif for my love of those stats you compiled, but it would not let me.

Thanks for posting!
