Hi all, now that the regular season is wrapped up, I wanted to post https://braceyourshelf.github.io/TF2-Player-Stats/ again since it has (hopefully) all the matches from the season compiled. I plan on continuing this for playoffs, but I'll make a separate list/table so we can see who is performing well in specifically playoffs.
As for the regular season, let's take a look at some of the stats.
In the kills department, we had some leaders:
Holly (WANG gang) - 524 Kills
ZoomZe (nug hub) - 508
anna (Cat Noises Black) - 478
Notably, both Cat Noises and nug hub missed playoffs, so I guess a scout carry can only do so much! Of course, generally the scouts with more playtime on scout had more skills (crazy how that works), so it's also good to look at the K/30m stat, but I'll leave it up to you guys to figure out how you want to filter playtime when looking in that column (Since who cares about people that only played scout for 3 minutes)
Tec (WANG gang) - 473
kots (PERUTECH_v2) - 408
trees (bungalow alert!) - 392
Most notably here is Tec, who has a giant lead over the next flank scouts. With WANG gang's scouts both at the top of their prospective lists, you have to wonder how they'll do in playoffs. Is it the scouts cleaning up on the rest of the team's damage or are these scouts just that good? Regardless, shutting down the scouts will be key to any team playing against them.
b0nes (WANG gang) - 354
gabby (Cat Noises Black) - 333
mild (The Bunion Project) - 330
The pockets don't have any big standouts. Notably another WANG gang player is at the top of the list. Another thing to note is K/D wise, the only soldier on this list who is positive is mild, who has 314 deaths. So he has more kills than deaths, but only barely. It's always hard to analyze a pocket soldier's impact through stats alone ("Trust me, I made space!", but regardless, b0nes and mild will be pockets to watch out for during playoffs.
Fireball (WANG gang) - 365
_S (PERUTECH_v2) - 356
Nootstook (bungalow alert!) - 344
All 3 of these players made playoffs, with the standout being Fireball who leads all soldiers in deaths with 511. For reference, the next highest deaths, Nootstook, has 427 deaths. Another thing to note is that all three of these teams align with the flank scout list. So it isn't just any one flank player carrying. These flanks have synergy, and work off each other very well.
Dogdayboy (WANG gang) - 408
Andrew (bungalow alert!) - 342
Lt. Lemons (image) - 313
Standout here is Dogdayboy with a pretty sizeable lead over his fellow demolition experts. With yet another WANG gang player at the top, you have to wonder how it's even possible that they have this many kills. Wouldn't they just get kills, and win rounds? With this many kills, it's clear that they have a problem converting kills into rounds. Andrew and Lt. Lemons both have the highest delta damage (DPM - DTM) out of all the demos this season, with 104.75 and 94.45, respectively. Dealing damage, and not taking damage is everything you could ask for in a demoman! Don't count Dogdayboy out though, as he's not far behind in 4th place with 87.94 delta damage.
For medic, there's a bunch of stats you can look at, so let's do this part differently and just take the winners from each of the fun categories.
Most Deaths - mattylight (coconut oil meatshots) - 231
Least Deaths / 30m - tree (The Kyle Flett Show) - 6.51
Most Ubers - Aifx (WANG gang) - 272
Most Drops - DubThink (Cat Noises Black) - 22
Highest Heals Per Minute - CH4RIOT (The Bunion Project) - 1178.11
DTM - dinko (Bulk Detonator State Of Mind) - 110.13
For medics, it's hard to find standouts, since so much of medic is dependent on team play style. Some medics play more aggressive than others, and some play more passive. So take a look at the various medic stats because they can be pretty interesting (certainly more so than just looking at k/d and damage!), but of course as a medic player, I'm biased.
Apologies for the wall of text, but it's fun to theory craft why certain teams are good, and why they have the stats they do. Hopefully you enjoyed!
