I’m looking to collect certain data pertaining to the raid match-making system to shed some light on a couple of questions*:
- Is there a bias in the raid matching system in favor of the defender with respect to trophy count?
- What sort of relationship exists between trophy count and defense team power?
To this end I’d like to invite anyone who wishes to contribute to record and post to this thread the following information for all matches proposed by the raid match-making algorithm:
Attacker’s Trophy Count
Defender’s Trophy Count
Defender’s Defense Team Power
Matchups that would be included would consist of any raids that are rolled for either in the ‘raids’ screen or when re-rolling when you are unable to make a revenge raid. Revenge raids, retries and raids in which you are the defender are not included because in the former case the numbers would be different than at the time the algorithm proposed the match, while in the latter cases these do not represent unique iterations of the algorithm’s output. It is also important to include ALL proposed matches, not just those that you choose to take on.
The easiest way to record/post your data would be to create a table in Excel like the one below then simply copy and paste the contents into a reply to this thread.
|Att. Troph.||Def. Troph.||Def. dTP|
