So I was bored, and needed to practice my very primitive Excel macro

writing. In January I asked Pav to send me the text dump files from

the Oook ladder (thanks, Pav!). Now I've finally had the time to

fiddle. I've transfered the 3878 files into an Excel spreadsheet and

put the data in some semblance of order, learning lots of mistakes

along the way.

Anyway, I've summarised some simple statistics on the 124 Angband

winners from Oook (non 2.4.f-k / 2.8.2) - I'll do ToME and maybe some

of the others later this weekend, hopefully.

I wasn't that interested in class/race combos or winner stats/hp etc

(although I can tell you if you are interested) but rather the winning

equipment. I haven't filtered out the people who kept playing after

killing Morgoth, so the data is very rough, but I thought I'd post it

here anyway:

(Apologies if the formatting doesn't work for you)

Gloves Inventory (Sum) Average

Fingolfin 73 Life 744 6.00

Cambeleg 28 Healing 2433 19.62

Agility 4 Book 1840 14.84

Slaying 3 Restoring 330 2.66

Power 1 Waybread 141 1.14

Paur* 1 Food 135 1.09

Speed 852 6.87

*Heal 796 6.42

So for instance, of the 124 winners, 67 of them were weilding Cubragol

when making the character dump. The winners held on average 6 potions

of Life. There aren't many surprises here: most players win with

Fingolfin, Thorin, Cubragol, some Speed etc., but I'd thought I'd post

it anyway.

I was amused to notice that of the 767 players I was looking at, 26

wore PDSM and 18 of those went on to post a winners post. That's a

pretty good winning ratio.

Everyone who posted a character with Bladeturner was a winner, but one

had Morgoth drop it and two of the others were characters with 99999999

experience, so yeah, it's rarer than Feanor or The One (assuming

everyone who finds it wears it) - no surprise there either. I'll seem

if ToME offers anything more interesting.

Oh well, hope this was mildly interesting to anyone out there who is

bored.
