Explanation of Statistical Terms
CA = Correct Answers
Total number of questions the player has answered correctly
CA% = Correct Answer Percentage
Correct Answers / Total Answers Submitted
K = Strikeouts
Player placed the K on a question their opponent got correct
MK = Missed Strikeout
Player's opponent got at least 1 answer correct, but the K was placed on a question they missed
K% = Strikeout Percentage
% of possible successful strikeouts.
(K / (K + MK) ) * 100
HRH = Home Runs Hit
The player got an answer correct that their opponent had marked as the HR
HRA = Home Runs Avoided
The player's opponent got at least 1 question correct, but the HR was placed on a question they missed
HRC = Home Runs Conceded
The player's opponent missed at least 1 question, but the HR was placed on a question they got correct
HRA% = Home Runs Avoided Percentage
% of possible successfully avoided Home Runs.
(HRA / (HRA + HRC) ) * 100
DS = Defensive Skill
A measure of how well a player has defended their opponents. Defensive Skill is calculated for each matchup for each player.
Opponents Expected Score - Opponents Actual Score
Expected Score is the average score from all players on a specific day with the same number of correct answers.
This stat was first conceived by Kyle Moran and Lucas Hubbard. For more information, check out their Fortnight 8 scatterplot and the associated explanation.
ADS = Average Defensive Skill
To account for differences in total matchups, Defensive Skill is averaged when comparing players across divisions and seasons. Matchups in which the opponent got 0 or 5 questions correct are excluded from this calculation, because defense does not matter in those matchups. They are considered "undefendable".
