Never Tell Me The Odds Blog: LVO – The Data Article; Part 1

I love me some data.  Don’t you love you some data?  Strap on some assless chaps, because we’re about to go for a ride.

“There are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics” – Mark Twain

So, the Las Vegas Open happened.  If you missed my brief recap and the top 6 lists from last week, check it out here.


The Legion tournament at LVO had 62 players, and those 62 players played 125 games.  I have in my hot little hands all 62 lists, and all 125 match report slips.

The match report slips were specifically designed for data collection.  On said slips were the player names, who won (obviously), red/blue player, factions, battle cards played, number of turns finished, and final score.  Below is an example of what the slips looked like.

Unfortunately not everyone filled out every field.  Final turn # was often left blank, which we will get to shortly.

NTMTO Blog: LVO Top 6 lists and (brief) Recap

Unless you have been wallowing in a Sarlaac pit, you probably know that the Las Vegas Open Maximum Firepower Legion tournament was this weekend.  62 players showed up to take part in the Galactic Civil War.  There were many heroic moments, some tight games, some gorgeous tables, and lots of awesome people.

The experience was a blast.  I had the privilege of helping out; setting up terrain, doing some judging, and generally performing whatever else my overlords required of me.  I got to meet tons of people I’ve never met in person but have interacted with on a near daily basis over the interwebs.  I was constantly impressed by the classiness and demeanor of my fellow Legion players.

Impact X Blog: LVO 2019 Wrap-Up

LVO 2019 is wrapped. It was by far the largest SW: Legion event to date by nearly 300% and on top of that it had the best tables and best prize support out of any of them. I think everyone will tell you the same and I think we have set a good benchmark of what the community can do and what the game can be. Plenty of other people will tell you about the event logistics so I won’t cover them too much except to say that LJ did a fantastic job and this wouldn’t have been possible without him. 

The event also collected a lot of data which Orkimedes will be analyzing to give us a macro look at the meta which I am really excited about, and I will post the top lists to the list section for micro analysis too. In this post I want to talk more about my personal experience and what I think about the state of the game at the moment.

Las Vegas Open!

I had the absolute pleasure of participating in the Star Wars Legion Tournament today.

Thank you to LJ and everyone who poured their blood, sweat and tears into making LVO the Legion event of the year and hopefully the inspiration to all future tournaments.

Congrats to those who won an invite to High Command.

Congrats to John Griffin who came in first.

And congrats to David LeBlanc (who plays at my local store) who went into the final round and took eleventh.

Here’s some photos from of the gorgeous tables: Continue reading →
