BlizzPro Ladder Optimizer #35: Region Rivalry – Boomsday Edition (BPLO, Meta-Meta Report)

by - 2 months ago

Introduction

[Skip “introduction” and  “understanding BPLO” if you know BPLO already]

This special “Americas versus Europe” edition of BPLO analysis includes stats sourced from  HS Replay and Vicious Syndicate. Each of these websites are reporting a slightly different Tier list for laddering, making it tricky to decide what you should play on the ladder. The BPLO analysis engine sources its data from all of these reports to try and give you a well rounded view which takes into account all the stats provided by these fantastic resources.

Directly below the infographic, you find the “Understanding BPLO section which explains everything relevant about the numbers provided.  As always, feel free and encouraged to tweet @BlizzPro@MacDaddyGonz, and @OtakuMZ1978, if you have questions, suggestions, or Feedback – all those are very much welcome!


BPLO Infographic


Understanding BPLO

Top Effective Win Rates (Measured in %)

Our picks for the strongest decks to play on ladder. Effective win rate % values indicate the expected win rate across all games played using this deck. Choose these decks to ensure you have the best chance at winning games.

Top Effective Laddering (Measured in net star gain per hour)

The most time efficient decks to play on ladder. Net gain per hour values indicate the expected number of stars earned per hour using this deck. Choose these decks to climb the ladder in the quickest time possible.

Note: The above metrics are given for the average player. Stronger players and players who correctly tech their deck for the meta may have much higher effective win rates and net star gain per hour using these decks! The contrary goes for below average players.

Top Decks Played (Measured in %)

Indicates which decks are the most often played. Get familiar with these decks because they are your enemy. Make sure you understand how to defeat these with your deck.

Salty Decks (Measured in %)

Direct counters to each of the three most popular decks. Win rate % indicates the salty deck’s average winrate against the popular deck. Use these on ladder at your own risk – they may be very strong against the one deck, but terrible against everything else! Salty decks may be more appropriate in tournament lineups where you can use a ban to avoid bad matchups.

The Chart (Measured in pretty graphs)

Plots effective win rate and net gain per hour for all tier 1 and 2 decks (decks with an effective win rate above 50%). All Ranks shown in Green, Ranks 5 – Legend shown in Red. Use this chart to see all decks which are viable for laddering.
