This is for all the qualifying matches that have occurred so far on this weekend and were posted to usfirst.org. This is based on about 3 times as much data as my last post. For the time being, I’m going to ignore finals. There really aren’t that many rounds of finals to get worthwhile data out of, and they are so different from qualifying rounds that I couldn’t really lump them into them.

Average score at BAE regional (last week): 24.6

**This week** (in brackets is last week, if available)

Average red score: 29.44 (23.8)

Average blue score: 29.53 (25.4)

Average score: 29.493 (24.6)

Average score when neither team scored zero: 30.41

Percent of matches where at least one team scored zero: 30% (35%)

# of red wins: 257

# of blue wins: 254

# of ties: 8

Median score: 27 (50% of scores were less than this)

Average win margin: 24.34 (18.2)

Average win margin when both teams were nonzero: 24.06

Average winning score: 42.0 (33.7)

Average losing score: 17.2 (15.4)

**Effect of multiple regional attendance**

Average score for a team full of first-timers: 29.318

Average score for a team where one member had attended a previous regional: 34.244

# of games in which one alliance had a member that had attended a previous regional, and the other alliance didn’t: 37

Win rate for the experienced team in that situation: 57% (note: with such a small sample size, this may not actually be significant. We’ll know for sure as the weeks go on if experience creates a significant advantage)

My comments:

As with last week, almost a third of games can be won by scoring a SINGLE point and not taking any penalties.
