Q: Why do stats look funky for the highest rating ranges?


The number of games with the highest ratings is extremely low, as these matches only comprise the top 1%. This leads to wider confidence intervals and a lot of unusual data, particularly in the case of civilization versus civilization matchups which often only have one or two games.

Q: How are the rating brackets decided?


Of the 1.3 million matches available as of April 1, 2023, for each leaderboard matches were divided into five groups: four even quartiles, and a fifth designated as the "pro" group. The divisions were based on the average match rating: 0-25%, 25-50%, 50-75%, 75-100%, and 99-100%.

The rating brackets were formed using the lowest and highest rating in each group. This results in each bracket, aside from the "pro" group, having approximately the same number of matches.

These brackets may be adjusted over time.

Q: Where does this data come from?


Data is provided by the relic community endpoints. Documentation for these endpoints can be found at librematch.

If you are interested in looking at the data for yourself, you might be interested in my weekly db dumps. Look at the next FAQ.

Q: Give me the data!


Ok! 😄 I've dumped all the data into parquet files you can download, read more about it here.

Q: What does "CO" mean?


Controller-only.

Q: Are durations in-game time or real time?


All durations and game lengths are in-game time.

Q: What criteria does a match have to meet to be included?


In order to be included in the stats matches must:

  • be at least 5 minutes long
  • be less than 180 minutes (3 hours) long
  • be a ranked match
  • NOT be a mirror match (same civilization on each side for 1v1s or all players same civ for team games)
  • NOT be a disconnect
  • NOT include a "one trick pony" player (a player with more than 100 games and 80% or more of their games are with one civ)

Q: What are the ± values everywhere?


You're probably asking about these:

51.00%±0.50

These values indicate the average (mean) win rate and the 95% confidence interval. In this example the win rate is 51% with a confidence interval of 0.05%. This provides the 95% confidence range of 50.5% to 51.5%.
