Standings as of 2017-10-24

It’s Tuesday, so let’s interpret the raw data from this weekend’s matches at the BGSU Invitational.

There were 7 ranked matches and 3 JV contests, which brings us to 75 ranked matches in the 2018 Season. That’s impressive and we keep breaking the record for most games played up to this point in the season (75 to last year’s 68 ranked matches up to the 4th Sunday of October.)

We also have 10 JV contests! The record for most JV games played in a Season is 11 contests in the 2015 Season, and we’re going to break that record before the winter break. A number of staff are impressed to see JV catching on this year, but keep in mind: it’s up to the leaders of each team to allow JV / B team / Second teams to see action. We’ll keep recording them as long as you keep scheduling time to bring them to events.  Continue reading “Standings as of 2017-10-24”

Standings as of 2017-10-11

This feature article was co-authored with Felix Perrone

In three events across a similarly expansive swath of the country as last week, we played 15 ranked matches and three JV contests. This has brought the records to a nice and round 1300 ranked matches. We saw a feature article with Dylan and Felix, in this feature article, Felix and I will present some more fun facts regarding that large chunk of data. Complete records span eight seasons, from the Opening Match on 2010-09-25 to this weekends games of 2017-10-08. While we have a number of matches recorded from 2005-2010, those records are not complete and as reliable so we refer to those as the dark times.

We had three events this weekend at PSU, GSU, and GVSU.

So far:

  • 50 matches played in the 2018 Season (another round number!)
  • 23 teams of our 32 active teams have played (not as round)
  • just 1 overtime (way under average)
  • 11 technical upsets (about on target)
  • a historical leader dips (more on that later)
