Ok, I know this may sound dumb, so i’ll take one for the team.

Can you explain what this chart means? I’m having trouble putting 2 and 2 together. Thanks!

basically it shows the number of scores that have occurred between a said range… i.e. there are 26 scores today that were between 0 and 10.

I think the confusion comes from it being a bit mislabeled (or at least confusingly labeled). It looks like a normal old normal probability density curve with the Y axis being the number of matches in a range of scores, such as 94 matches being between 40 and 49.

And the whole “bins” label doesn’t help with the confusion. I get the general gist of it though, great work.

1519’s scouts tell me that the average score per team per match at BAE is 14.70

Hmm… thats really low. I guess that’s to be expected of a week 1 regional. Try asking your scouts what the median of the data is. I suspect that that will a more accurate idea of the what the matches really are like.

Clearly! (I guess that’s a pun - sort of.) “Match Score” is apparently really the x-axis, not the y-axis (as labelled), while the y-axis is really what they call the frequency (which is tabulated to the right of the word “score”).

That being said, it’s a very interesting plot, so thanks, Joe Ross! But what’s the “poly” stuff all about?

I had to check to make sure it wasn’t from 2003.

Interesting though once you figure it out, it’s right about where a lot of people said it would be.

where was the 110 + scored?

WC

Thats probably close to correct. The date is slightly skew (shewed left to be specific), so the mean will be higher than the median.

That’s per **TEAM** per match. So the average score is 14.7*3=**44.1** which is certainly higher than I expected.

I don’t see that score registered anywhere either.

I thought the top score was 104, which would put it in the 100 bin. (assuming the 0 bin is 0-10 points)

Hmm, is the first bin 0 (exactly), and the second bin is 1-10? That would explain it - but the OP should revise the chart to indicate it properly.

Overall or winning alliance score distribution?

Great work!

That is correct.

Overall score.

“Poly” --> Default abbreviation in MS Excel for a polynomial function, as opposed to other trendline options including linear, logarithmic, and exponential functions. This looks like a 4th or 5th order function, which in this case is acting as an approximation for a bell curve.

if these scores are scores before penalties team 121, 40, and i forgot who else *sorry* had a score of 90 but 110 before penalties…
