    Hello Everyone! I’ve been putting together an analysis application for the scores from PAPA 20. It’s a few months after the event, but I thought it would still be interesting to share.

    I’ve included interactive visuals on Division, Players, Games, Finals, and an exploratory tab that lets you compare scores of Games against one another. The main crux of what was being looked at were qualifying score values across the competitors. Which games have a linear vs. exponential build?

    For the Finals, it’s a simple look at the brackets and who moved on; since the number of games played was very minimal, I didn’t think it made sense to include finals scores in the analysis.

    Thanks to Aiton from the PAPA team for giving me access to the scoring software to get all of the qualifying scores.

    High-level summary numbers:
    * 92 Unique games played across all divisions
    * 483 different people participated
    * 8,396 “Best Games” posted, as in it was the player’s best game for the machine. What that doesn’t include are all the re-buys!

    A few notes:

    * The only Division I didn't include was Split Flipper, as trying to get the data model to work with two players per game complicated it to the point where I had to remove it.
    * I didn't have access to the Juniors brackets, so Finals are accurate, but the Semi-Final matchups were best guesses.
