Statistics: The abilities winners use in Sil 1.3.0
 
Data source: All winners of Sil 1.3.0 and Sil 1.3.0-mpa submitted to the Sil ladder as of this post (69 total dumps).

I used a simple python script to tally every line in every dump that looked like gaining an ability (including ones where there are commas in the ft or turn count, for example):

Code:

def countskills(directory):
        list = []
        for filename in os.listdir(directory):
                list.extend(printskills(directory + '\\' + filename))
        #
        counter = collections.Counter(list)
        return repr(counter)
#


def printskills(filename):
        result = []
        f = open(filename, 'r')
        for line in f:
                # example line:
                #  27,445  1,000 ft  (Lore-Keeper)
                match = re.match('\s+[\d,]+\s+[\d,]+\sft\s+\(([^)]+)\)', line)
                if match != None:
                        result.append(match.group(1))
        return result
#

And here is a csv of the result:

Code:

Hardiness,58

Notes:

1) The different ways you can gain 'Bane' are countered as separate entries. Rauko-Bane is super popular, the rest not so much.
2) I had to insert Throwing Mastery by hand because... NO WINNER took it. How about a buff in 1.4.0, huh? ;)
3) The different 'Dexterity' etc abilities are all grouped together, which artificially inflates how popular they are.
4) Of course, the statistics are going to be influenced by things besides how good the abilities literally are, such as 'how many people are trying Morgoth killer builds vs how many people are just trying to win', whether people are taking what worked the last time for them vs experimenting to try and find a better build, doesn't take into account how useful the skill was for actually winning (vs being taken as vanity after the game was effectively won), and so on. Keep that in mind while drawing conclusions.

Nice. I'd be interested in the joint 1.2/1.3 stats as the mechanics are similar & I have a disproportionate no. of the 1.3 winning dumps (23 of 69 are mine). For instance a fair few of the artifice smiths are mine, same with heavy armour-use builds. I almost guarantee the channellers are mostly me & a lot of the eye for detail numbers.

Antoine December 13, 2016 16:03

I was surprised to see Song of Mastery at the bottom?

HallucinationMushroom December 13, 2016 19:16

Thanks for this, this is really neat.

Wow, leaping 27! That is surprising to me.

How is it possible that concentration is 16, but focused attack is 15? I don't have access to the game at the moment, but I thought focused attack was the pre-requisite? Does your script collect abilities from armor? I recall there is an armor that gives concentration.

One of the artifact armours has Concentration solely...So that could be why

Serpent-bane, troll-bane, wolf-bane, all yours I reckon. I really like channeling too, but only one win in the statistics.

Doubt artefact effects are listed in the statistic. It might be mpa changed ability dependencies.

Still no Throwing Mastery takers. LOL. Though I noticed that there's artifact gloves that give Throwing Mastery and 3 people were wearing them.

Song of Master now up to 9, that's more like it. I guess it went out of fashion in 1.3.0?

I don't think my script collects abilities from equipment. You can look at it in the first post - it looks only for lines that look like gaining an ability on a certain level/turn.

Focus is the only pre-req for concentration so at a guess it's picking up a few user made notes?

Antoine December 14, 2016 17:27

So on the face of it, Slaying and Sharpness seem to dominate the other Songs a bit more than they perhaps should?

Perhaps. It's pretty hard to eliminate (& whether you should is questionable) a solid proven strategy. Finesse, high melee/evasion, rauko-bane, slaying/sharpness, buff & herb of rage, kill 'em all.
