I have a little experiment I want to run - I want to know exactly what % of teams out there have Phoenix, Wolvie, Wesker, etc. And figure out which characters are underused and overused. I think some “overused” characters will not turn out to be as overused as some people would like to think.
What criteria will I be using to evaluate results?
Characters picked 6.99% of the time or less - underused
Characters picked 7.00% to 9.00% of the time or less - average
Characters picked 9.01% of the time or more - overused
How did I come up with this criteria? 3 out of 38 equals 8%. Plus / minus 10% gives you a range of 7 to 9%.
So here’s where I need everyone’s help - can you all please help me in compiling my data? Alone I can’t possibly accumulate enough games to create a good sample. I bought this game on launch and I have less than 1,000 games in ranked. But if we all contribute (i.e. recording all your matches for the next day or two, while setting all search parameters to “ALL”), I think it won’t be as bad.
If you’re interested, please go ahead and start playing Ranked, but please remember to set your search parameters set to “ALL” and to record your data. When you’re done, please post your results on this thread, you can copy and paste this format:
C. Viper -
Captain America -
Chun Li -
Doctor Doom -
Hsien Ko -
Iron Man -
Shuma Gorath -
Super Skrull -
Tron Bonne -
Viewtiful Joe -
If you post your Day 1 results and you’re posting Day 2 results, please remember to indicate if you’re posting Day 1 AND Day 2, or if your post only reflects Day 2. I’m in charge of compiling data and I’ll publish updates every now and then.
