Rok Da Vote: Win % Poll Closing

This poll didn’t seem to draw a lot of attention so it’s time to move on. I asked what your win % was in 40K and the results are below.

[poll id=”11″]

There’s a pretty thorough spread but you’ll notice that it’s more top heavy, most votes going 50% and above. Those voting they win 70% or better are 37.5% of all the votes, which I find impressive. Either a lot of really good players read this blog or people are inflating their ego and vote with anonymity.

As for myself, I voted the mark that had the most votes, the 40-50% range. Having Orks, Marines and Necrons, the spread between those armies is reasonable but that’s where it averages out for me. Of course the other piece of this puzzle is draws and losses, and draws I have in quantity, as others do I’m sure.

Now time to think of a good poll that will actually draw some votes…

    Heh, interesting.  One might derive from this set of numbers that since people who actually care about competitive lists and such read blogs in their off time, they have better results than most.

    However, I’m of the opinion that people just *think* they win that much.  I said mine was either 60-70 or 70-80, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder if it’s true- I generally do very well, but it takes a lot of effort to win even that much.  I don’t know if I’ve ever met *anyone* with a true 90% or better win record, besides people who play in a very small/tight community and don’t branch out and play others much.

    Just what I think, heh.

    • I have to agree. I feel it’s easy to think your record is better than it is when you’re just pulling from memory. I don’t think it’s intentionally necessarily either. You tend to recall the big victories, the big losses and those really tight games more easily than the more ‘typical’ games. If you’re taking the losses in those typical games then it stands to reason they are being overlooked. Plus, some people simply play a lot. I know I play a fair amount and if I didn’t track each game in a database I’d have no clue what my record was.
