* = H.O.T, XellOs, and GoRush's stats did not factor in to the Total numbers
So, there's a lot of shit here, but I'll just pick out the stuff I was interested in. First off, I thought it was cool to see what each player's stats looked like before they were tainted by their years in ACE. It's a good way to put into perspective how good these guys were in their prime, rather than just look at their overall career stats in TLPD. Secondly, I wanted to see how each player did while in ACE. OversKy with a better winning % than BoxeR was pretty surprising.
Race-wise, the Terran players seem to have taken the biggest hit from their time in ACE compared to their previous numbers. Of course, it is a bit skewed imo because Sunny and ChRh both joined ACE after having gone years since their last televised game. One thing I was really interested in was whether any matchup proved particularly more difficult for ACE members with their lessened practice times:
Before - ACE = Difference
TvT: 50.00% - 32.73% = 17.27
TvP: 48.58% - 26.67% = 21.91
TvZ: 57.14% - 33.33% = 23.81
PvT: 53.87% - 27.27% = 26.6
PvP: 52.17% - 39.47% = 12.7
PvZ: 45.53% - 32.43% = 13.1
ZvT: 49.71% - 28.89% = 20.82
ZvP: 57.22% - 42.55% = 14.67
ZvZ: 52.14% - 37.50% = 14.64
AVG Difference = 18.39%
So, Protoss players seem to have a hell of a time playing PvT compared to the other matchups seeing their Winning % drop more than twice as much as the other matchups.
Looking towards the next few rounds of PL, I think it's pretty clear that things are going to get better for ACE with the arrival of GoRush and XellOs. Also, you can see that the team will be getting rid of a lot of dead weight in Sunny, fOru, and Rage (who all went a combined 8-45 in 1v1 games). GoRush still had the ability to make it through offline prelims and win a game or two in qualifying tournaments before he decided to go to ACE, and I think it would be fair to bet he can win somewhere in the range of 35-40% of his games. I don't think XellOs will do quite as well, but he'll do better than Casy, probably winning somewhere around 30-35% of his games.
If these predictions come true, ACE will be significantly more dangerous than they are now. They'll have at least two capable players at each race, and if given good matchups I could see them beating two or three games a round, not just 1 outta 11. Anyways, if you don't like stats, I apologize, but its almost baseball season, and I'm getting more and more interested in dissecting stuff like this again.
