Congratulations Loney Fan on topping ex-Bro (Round 2) MLASC, Jason, Mr F, and Spank for the title of The Ultimate Broheim! In an ironic yet heartwarming twist, it was LF's old nemesis QuadSevens who pushed him across the finish line in Round 5. LF & Quad - Frenemies Forever!
But now for the fun part: statistical analysis. Interestingly, the four participants with the highest average rating - Karina, Paul, MB, and rbn - all ranked in the bottom quartile. And the folks with the lowest average ratings - Steve K and DB - fell in the middling-to-low.
You probably knew there was no way we'd get out of this without a graph somehow involved, and here it is, compiled from the cumulative 100 data points (20 players x 5 rounds):
The correlation between your rating and your broheim's rating is evident to the naked eye, as is to a lesser degree the correlation between your rating and the degree to which you trade up or down (highly desirable folks logically have less opportunity to trade up than less desirable folks). As far as the relationship between your rating and your score (which is based on the above two relationships) - it seems there's a downside to being rated either too highly or too poorly. The middle ratings seem to have the advantage. Interesting...
And finally, a bonus graph:
So as expected the poor 1s and 2s were often left out in the cold, and the 9s never went Broheimless. Yet the 10s - perhaps due to the intimidation factor - went dateless a quarter of the time!
Anyhow, thanks everyone for bravely taking part in the social experiment. Congrats again to Loney Fan and the other top finishers! (prize to be announced soon)
