Regional color density is an interesting question. The fact that SG throws out boards with initial 3-matches is going to alter (increase) the expected mixing somewhat. I haven’t looked at or tracked the available initial color matches on any given board, though.
The challenge is that I don’t have a good model for what the distribution of color densities across trials ought to look like, so I wouldn’t know what the data was really telling me even if I had it. I’m very open to suggestions on figuring this out.
Not yet. This is an open question. We’re trying to get someone to pick this project up, but so far no takers.
I can infer that they aren’t too bad based on my win rate being about 70%, even though I’m an average of 350TP lower than my opponents. But that’s a long, long way from a rigorous analysis
I’m a bit less concerned about this, given how good the distribution between colors is even when stacking. My current heroes also aren’t really compatible with going rainbow and staying in Platinum, so this would be painful for me to do.
DoctorStrange is a dedicated rainbow player, though, as is Brobb. I believe General_Confusion and KingArchur also raid with rainbow teams. We might be able to talk one of them into screenshotting boards and uploading them. I’m not really sure the game is worth the candle, though.
Thanks! Yeah, I have the data, and I still yell at my phone. Gotta love when you go up against someone 700TP higher and get 2 tiles of your strong color
