Gwent Players Scores and Efficiency IndexPosted by Gwent August 5, 2020 in
The seventh season of Gwent Masters 2 – Season of Griffin – has just finished. On this occasion we would like to add some spice to everyday Gwent experience, especially when it comes to competitive play. We would like to take a look back and provide you with Masters 2 High Scores, both in terms of MMR and efficiency. As there is no widely accepted efficiency measure, we provide our own, called Ladder Efficiency Index (LEI). In order to not miss any player, we restrict ourselves only to data provided on Gwent Masters website, without making use of public profiles.
If you are interested in Gwent statistics and missed some of the earlier articles, we would also like to refer you to Nations of Gwent 2 and Faction Stats for the Season of the Griffin. If you are interested in the topic of ladder efficiency and Pro Ladder ratings, we also recommend seeing a short Modelling Study on playing late/early in the season.
Let’s start from discussing the topic of Ladder Efficiency Index.
Ladder Efficiency Index (LEI)
Player who plays small number of games and achieves relatively high MMR on Pro Ladder is often called ‘efficient’. Player who plays a lot and achieves mediocre or weak results is commonly called ‘spammer’. This last name is not too kind, as low efficiency is also a typical domain of streamers, memers, and simply people enjoying playing the game more than squeezing every single point.
Anyway, Gwent Masters website gives only two numbers describing player’s efficiency: peak MMR and number of games. On this basis, we would like to define as simple measure of efficiency as possible. Think of BMI (Body Mass Index) you’ve probably already come across. BMI says how thick you are in real life, based on height and weight, LEI would tell how thick you are in Gwent 😉
The intuitive first try is taking MMR and dividing by no. of games. It would not work due to placements however, beacuse MMR gain is way faster before placements are done. So we have to include only surplus MMR: MMR – 9600(minimal placements score). Index defined this way could already work fine, but justice demands taking into account that games on high MMRs are harder and less rewarding than on low. The simplest operation to account for this effect is squaring surplus MMR, which gives the same effect as taking square root of no. of games, while the final number will be smaller and prettier in the latter case. So here we are: LEI = surplus MMR / sqrt(no. of games).
Having LEI, we need to compare it with a scale to judge what a particular number means, just as in the case of BMI. After all, we do it to have fun, don’t we? 😉
- 55+ => Divine
- 50-55 => Heroic
- 45-50 => Legendary
- 40-45 => Excellent
- 35-40 => Very Good
- 30-35 => Good
- 25-30 => Fair
- 20-25 => Okay
- 15-20 => Mediocre
- 10-15 => Poor
- 5-10 => Very Poor
- 0-5 => Pathetic
So, how thicc are you in Gwent? If you want to look thicker, consider subtracting games below Pro Ladder. Now let’s move to the main body – high scores and Season of the Griffin charts.
Season of the Griffin
While the information is directly accessible on Gwent Masters website, i’d like to start from Top10 chart in the Season of the Griffin.
The season was clearly won by Demarcation, followed by Pajabol and Gravesh. Congratulations! Let’s now change the key into LEI to search for most efficient players.
Tailbot tops efficiency rating with a clear advantage, followed by Gravesh and Demarcation. Kolemoen took 4th position with impressive late season finish. These four have considerable efficiency edge over the rest of the field.
Masters 2 Highscores
Last season (Griffin) scores are highlighted in green. It could be seen that as much as 5 scores from the Season of the Elf are in the chart. Demarcation’s final result is very good, and joins high score table at the 5th position.
Comments are probably not needed. Tailbot‘s score from the Season of the Bear is absolutely outstanding in terms of efficiency, and you can use provided scale to give it the proper name. Kolemoen is a firm runner-up in the efficiency ratings. Demarcation highscores are a bit undervalued, but unfortunately LEI could not be 100% just.
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed the charts and maybe found something new about Gwent Masters 2. And maybe it indeed warmed you up enough to try to join one of the charts next season? See you on ladder!
