While Iām disappointed at my mainās placement (Aganos) in regards to the rest of the cast, even though itās actually not all that bad all things considered, it continues my trend of playing the underdogs in FGs. Knowing that I can do so well at such a high level in both KI, and in other FGs, means that I just get to keep a smile on my face as I continue having fun.

This matchup chart shows the medians of all the respondantās opinions. If you click details you can also see averages.

Some of the contributors have 7-3s on their charts, and they may be right. But this chart represents the overall feelings of the entire contributing group, and not enough of them agreed on the 7-3s to make that appear on the results chart.

Those players can now try to convince the players who disagree of why they feel that way through discussion and gameplay and get them to change their opinions. Those changes in opinion will be reflected on the Version 2 chart coming at the end of February. We also hope to double the number of contributing players.

This is a discussion kickoff point. It isnāt fact, its feeling.

Nothing surprising on this list. we almost knew for sadira and kan ra S3 but thank you to have make it obvious for everyone.
Now thats your job to make it look 5-5 for everyone in this game @TheKeits.
no more low ,mid or high tiers pls.

Because this is a full matchup chart. Players stated how they thought thunder did in every matchup in the game, and then his total score was lower than people thought it would be. A chart like this forces you to really think about your gut and check it by diving a little deeper. Its a thought exercise.

Thanks for that. I wasnāt being clear - I get how the math works and how the data was put together. I was just wondering if people could kind of āback translateā the analysis and tell me what they think the drivers are for these final arrangments. So, looking at Kilgore he has a 5.5 advantage over some strong characters like Jago (which I would like to hear more about) and then some 6 advantages over weak characters (which I get). Those big advantages over weaker characters definitely fluff his numbers a bit. But still seems a bit inflated.

Likewise Thunder. None of the swings are big, and of course this is reflected in the low variance (Thunder is only - 2.7 even though he ranks as the seventh weakest character). But the Thunder Glacius matchup is nearly a 4-6 in Glaciusās favor and I have a hard time believing that.

Beyond that, thereās only a couple of scores that donāt make sense to me. I donāt see how Spinal loses to Kan-Ra 4-6 considering he has a teleport. On the face of it that just seems out of whack.

None of this is criticism. Iām just hoping to facilitate some discussion by asking about things that interest me.

The math on this chart makes him in the top 5 scores.

The contributing players think he wins/loses the matchups listed on the chart.

Its never too early to judge, because none of this is a final ājudgementā. Its a chart, based on current opinion, and new a one will come out next month that reflects next monthās opinions.

I agree. I assume that āaverageā is mean and median isā¦ median. For those who donāt remember their statistics, mean is just adding up all the numbers and then dividing by the number of scores. As a result, it weights everyoneās opinion on every character equally.

Median identifies a point where half of the answers are above and half are below. This can change the numbers, but it has an effect of diminishing extreme answers. This can remove outliers, but it can also (theoretically) diminish some real variance. Whatās telling is that if the median and the mean are different, it suggests some people had strongly different matchup numbers.
