Once again I tallied up the score for events played. This time it’s the August numbers, and that was not one of my better performances.
The numbers from August where:
No events won, which is ok. I never participate in an event, and expect to win it. If I win it is just a nice surprise, since it drastically improves my Expected Value of the event. But losing more than half my rounds really gave food for thought. This ties into the statistics on the color distribution, but more on that later.
I also did some statistics on the deck color distribution and their individual win rates:
First off, the sample size on each color is relatively small, which makes any conclusions based on this quite uncertain. The numbers for blue (which is from alive draft) and BG are quite ok, but the WG combination just fell through for me. When I read Matt Costas article on how Team Pantheon dissected the M15 draft format, it gave me a wealth of information I wanted to try out, but I think I may have screwed up somewhere along the way. I think, and this is where I second guess myself, that I may have been forcing the Selesnya decks too much. This may be based off an assumption that they’d come through more often than not. I could have been building them wrong or just misevaluated their power level in general, but the fact of the matter is that I lost far more with those, than with any of the others. Of course I didn’t play much else 😉
Another thing I noticed is that my mood is directly linked to my win percentage in an event. This is something that I really need to work on, since no game should be worth getting pissed over.
– Don’t force too much. Look at all options a second time
– It’s not important to win, but to improve.
Until next time, take care 🙂
