Explaining Wins: I Knew It!  February 12, 2013 – 08:23 pm

End of an Era

Yesterday I reviewed some excellent work by Patrick in regards to the “low usage, high efficiency” player myth. The basic claim is two-fold. Many claim that Wins Produced overvalues these players. And with that claim comes the implication that being this type of player is easy. Patrick pointed out very simply that these type of players are rare and I showed that they were also not the players leading the way for top Wins Produced players.

Hoopdon, who comments frequently, wrote a follow up post. His goal was to explain how low usage, high efficiency players benefit by playing by high usage players or good systems. I am going to do a critique of his post for this post (meta, I know!) and hopefully explain some of the problems with trying to explain things the way Hoopdon did.

I’ll be honest, I was upset when I started reading Hoopdon’s post

Many claim efficient low-usage players can be vastly overrated by WP, while high-usage less efficient players can be underrated.  I don’t generally agree with the premise, however there are certain cases where it can be true.  This isn’t so much a function of WP being crap, but like in any holistic statistical metric, certain data points will fall outside the norm for whatever reason.

Francisco D'Anconia, on sex and morality

“Do you remember what I said about money and about the men who seek to reverse the law of cause and effect? The men who try to replace the mind by seizing the products of the mind? Well, the man who despises himself tries to gain self- esteem from sexual adventures–which can’t be done, because sex is not the cause, but an effect and an expression of a man’s sense of his own value.”
“You’d ...will want the highest type of woman he can find, the woman he admires, the strongest, the hardest to conquer — because only the possession of a heroine will give him the sense of an achievement, not the possession of a brainless slut. He does not seek to . . . what’s the matter?” he asked, seeing the look on Rearden’s face, a look of intensity much beyond mere interest in an abstract discussion.
