As a follow-up to the previous post, here’s some statistical data on past five European VtES Championships, regarding the distribution of game wins and timeouts. Using the Archons (ExcelSheets) from the ECs in Palma de Mallorca (2009), Paris (2010), Warsaw (2011), Budapest (2012) and Stockholm (2013), it was possible to add up the results from all the different tournaments (Legendary Vampire/Nations Cup, Last Chance Qualifier, Day 1, Day 2 and First Chance Qualifier). The summary for these tournaments look like this:
In this comparison you can see, that the trend towards less gamewins was dramatically interrupted during this year’s EC. We will see if that trend is truly broken after the EC 2014 in Mannheim, Germany. What is quite astonishing, is that not the GWs with 2 or 3 VPs were gaining significantly, but the GWs with 4 or 5 VPs had a huge comeback in Sweden. This can almost certainly attributed to the observation that in general the Swedish players tend towards decks that can oust (e.g. bleed decks). This is exemplified by the 43 decks (out of 100) used in the Day 1 tournament which can tagged as bleed decks, Out of these 43 bleeds decks 25 (out of 40) then qualified for the Day 2 tournament.
Take note, that only games with exactly 5 players were included into the statistics.
