ORWEN - Node War History

30 posts in this topic

Posted

With the help of @Sleepy, we've got 2 months of node war data in the can, which you can check out here:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DzbtBWMMrpq4iVLa2bA45TIXZPLl5pf9BKqQCeRre7o/edit?usp=sharing

 

Overall Data

Total data points:  1195

 

Captured nodes:  737 (61%)

Open nodes:  458 (38%)

 

Guild* Data

Guilds that captured at least 1 node: 114

Guilds that captured at least 1 territory:  14

 

Top 5 Node Caps:

Nigh-----ch (17), Templar (15), Aethereal (14),  Infernal (13), Soul of the Dragon (13)

Top 5 Territory Caps:

LotD (6), FoE (5), Relevant (5), Rage (4), Iconic (3)

 

Lokien's Takeaways

  • LotD and FoE go HAM on nodes on weeks that they aren't holding a territory.
  • For a guild that builds bases and doesn't actually show up to fight, SoulOfTheDragon has a staggering volume of node captures.
  • There are about 40 guilds that average at least 1 node per week.
  • Many guilds started very territorial (keeping the same node week to week) and have shifted to dropping wherever they could find a fight.
  • While the alliances no longer exist (for the most part), it is interesting to see the that unofficial factions left in their wake (Legacy vs. Meerkats) are fairly balanced in terms of territory caps.  Each faction has had 16 territory caps over the past 2 months.  So there's some sort of PvP equilibrium working itself out on Orwen.
  • The data is interesting but is easily manipulated (building a fort to take an uncontested win) and misleading (no caps could have been a great 5 guild fight that ended in stalemate).
  • I would like to do a weekly poll similar to the BCS to get the Guildmasters' thoughts on who the best on the server are.  And also see the salt flow every week.

Thoughts?  Comments?  Criticisms?  Concerns?

* Note:  The data only takes into account the guild that captured the node at the time it was captured.  It does not take into account guilds who have merged/imploded/changed their name.  So, for example, the guilds "Legatum" and "Ascendence" are treated as different guilds in the data despite the fact that they are essentially the same guilds at different points in their history.

I'm just curious to see if a new Orwen "power house" guild will ever show up, aka something along the lines of FoE and Rage merging. Or if it'll go in the opposite direction with larger guilds, like LOTD, Iconic, Relevant, splitting up a bit into more 60ish man guilds, such as Rage, and FoE currently are.

To complete your chart,
Week 1: Wandering Rogues Den and Rhua Tree Stub were held by RavensOfWar
Week 2: Karanda Ridge and Northwestern Gateway were held by RavensOfWar
 

Also, got RavensOfWar data for "practice weeks", the opening week, and the week of 7/7 and 7/18

 

Cheers!

Absent a major event that triggers an influx or exodus of players, I don't foresee either happening.  To me, it seems far more likely that smaller guilds will start consolidating to make more mid-majors like Rage, FoE, Ascendence, etc. 

But with Farm Simulator 17 coming out next month... I would be surprised if any guild had more than 10 active players at a given time.

More and more small guilds are merging since they changed how guild missions work - need X number of members to do a medium mission, X number for large, x-large, etc. Two small guilds have told me they were looking to merge, even if there were a lot of inactives, just to be able to take the larger missions.

Thanks for doing this! Looking over the stats is fun. Btw, I think you should combine stats for guilds that renamed.

well relevant has been hovering around an 80 man guild atm, the original goal was to have a smaller guild with the strongest players. we may be going back to those roots with the awakenings making it more viable

I had thought about doing that, but decided against it for 3 compelling reasons:

1.  I don't want to diminish an accomplishment of a certain group at a certain time under a certain banner.  If Veritas took a castle, it wouldn't be fair for me to go back and rewrite history and erase that accomplishment to say Iconic took that castle or vice-versa.

2.  Do I use the old name?  Or the new name?  What to do about dormant guilds like Dysfunctional that were subsequently snapped up by groups looking to avoid guild quests? 

3. Laziness.

Tbh, that was a far cooler concept that what Relevant is today.

Not with about 5 people applying a week to LotD, were having to make difficult decisions every week. We started very small and casual coming into this game. A few guilds liked PvPing with us and merged into us. Thats happened about 4-5 times now. I really wouldn't count on us splitting.

Thanks for busting out your throw-away forum account for that one, chief. 

Maybe you could take a hint from the scrubs that provoked you into making the fake account in the first place:  Man Up.

My life would be easier if Kakao released node war data. I have some reasons to believe why they haven't done it yet but those are tin-foiled conspiracies.
