You are awesome! Qwert's formula rewards you for playing in 48 games, which was 5th most in the league. You also eliminated 48 players, which is heavily weighted in Qwert's formula. Very impressive.
Here are the stat lines for two players from AQOH. thelord played in 4 more games than kgb, but won 8 more. However, since he had 4 less KILLS he is several places behind. The formula puts WAY TOO much emphasis on kills. Honestly, had Qwert not quit, we would not have used this formula to award an MVP anyways.
Kgbpizza 30 18 12 0 0 25 60%
Thelord 34 26 8 0 0 21 76%
Gee, thanks cheme. I wasn't really unsure of my awesomeness, but since you dont usually hand out compliments, I'll take it. I hadn't really looked at any stats, but apparently I won 34 and lost 14. So my win percentage was 70%.
I remember a similar situation in the first Random league. Foed won the tournament and Dynasty came in second. danryan and I were neck and neck for the MVP, we both were at the top of the list in games played, with me having a slight few more wins, and way more kills. I remember at the time, you wanted us to be Co-MVP's, but I ended up getting it, though danryan was certainly deserving of it. Choosing an MVP isn't always easy, it can be kinda subjective, with differing opinions. With that said, congrats thelord, a deserving MVP who went a long way in helping AQOH win the league.
I wouldn't totally knock kills. Sure, there is luck, and circumstance in play. I will happily set up a team mate for a kill if it's the best plan. I don't purposely try to rack up kills but it's not really a coincidence either. I kill a lot of people I play against. I lot of times I wind up being the tip of the spear. I have some good teammates, some with notoriously unreliable dice, or that just have a knack for setting someone else up. I have other good teammates like myself, who are aggressive, but will always look it over to see if there is something better for someone else. I typically tend to be more the aggressive type. I am also very deliberate, so on the big complicated moves...I dont make mistakes. I finish. It's just a fact. I kill! Obviously, getting the win is most important. You need all members to play well to get the win. If you are gonna look at MVP, an individual award, you might look away from a team achievement like a win, and look more at kills. Sure, if someone has 2 or 3 more kills, not much different, little luck here or there it could be different. Now if you have someone who scores TWICE the kills as the other guy...then you are looking at someone who had their way a lot more often. And just to throw it out there, I'm not one that needs to follow a script to clear the board..I usually write the script.
So cheme...? Can you tell If I think I'm awesome or not?
