Number Crunching with Hilbert
I have parsed 10GB log data starting in Dec 11. (That's when I started logging everything.)

I intend to publish some in-depth analysis of the data at in the coming days/weeks.

Available so far:
  • EPtS
  • TSS
  • ST
  • Science vs Engineering
  • Borg shield proc and BFI doff

That's pretty much what we figured. Thanks for providing hard data to us. I can't wait to see the final analysis of all that data mining.

hilbert was talking about this in opvp. his analysis is correct - the resist boost from ES is nice, but the shields have to be there in the first place for them to resist anything, and BFI provides the shields.

it's pretty clear that BFI doffs are silly and need a looking-at.

rofl. BFI is responsible for like 50% of shield healing :eek:

TSS, the Borg proc (lol) and BFI DOffs alone make up almost four fifths of all healing done in the game...

Too real.

Great chart! Looking forward to seeing more.

What was your build at these dates?

What we always knew but never this blatantly op imo.

Another thing to note is, people switching away from tss to BFI.

Different builds. For the most part Tac/Escort with a standard energy build. Near the beginning of the data there are probably more matches where I play DPS cruiser (Sci or Tac).
Sci/Sci, Eng/Cru and KDF setups (and the off Tac/T3 Golfball) are in there too, but not as many.

The values are averages over all players in those matches, so my personal build will slightly alter the disrtibution since my personal abilities will be represented more often than others, but overall it should be a fairly good look at arena pvp of the last 10 months.

I have note cleaned up the data (doing so would have taken weeks), so even STFs and a little bit of ground combat are in there, but I'm doing vastly more arena matches than anything else, so I don't expect this to have much of an effect on the data.

Good data to have for sure... I think this is pretty much what we all know to be true from parsing the odd match / night here and there... interesting to see the trending of the data.

Seeing as you are mentioning ES though it isn't the healing that makes that skill an issue imo... its the resist. To be honest I don't even have any issues with ES the way it works... I just really don't like the fact that the opportunity cost is so low on it that we see it on escorts and sci healers. I think it needs to be the big boy heal that makes cruisers a team asset instead of the liability they are now....

Anyway great data... more fuel for the fire... BFI doffs need changed pronto.
