Extrapolating CCV’s from Player Grades

In a couple days, the CCV’s will be decided with a committee like they normally are. Some people have been speculating what order the captains will be in. I think everybody has Sader/Sab, Nets/Saintz, Ace/Rain as the first three, and everybody has had Pig/Drk, Rage/BCN, Galv/Rick as the last three, but the orders have been mixed up. So I used the player grades that poptart has been doing to try and predict the exact order and guess what the final numbers could be. I’ll explain how, then post the results:

First I added together each duo’s overall grade and got this:

Saintz/Nets: 27.1

Sader/Sab: 26.5

Ace/Rain: 26.2

Rage/BCN: 25.1

Pig/Drk: 25.0

Galv/Rick: 23.4

*note that I’m using the most recent grades since which are still private right now. But they’ll be posted soon!

Next we have to scale those grades into CCV’s. That means we need to multiply them all by some constant. Last season, the CCV’s were set so that the average was EXACTLY 200. Using that assumption, I found the constant X using this formula:

That constant ended up being about 7.8, so I multiplied all the Duo grades by that to find the CCV order, and then rounded them a bit.

Saintz/Nets: 210

Sader/Sab: 205

Ace/Rain: 205

Rage/BCN: 195

Pig/Drk: 195

Galv/Rick: 180

Now that seems like a pretty reasonable order, but the grades don’t do a good job really separating out the duos. They’re all pretty clustered around 200. So I would double how far away from 200 they are. Meaning, Saintz is 10 away, I’d make it 20. Galv is 20 down, I’d make it 40. SO HERE’S MY FINAL LIST:

Sader’s CCV’s

Saintz/Nets: 220 credits

Sader/Sab: 210 credits

Ace/Rain: 210 credits

Rage/BCN: 190 credits

Pig/Drk: 190 credits

Galv/Rick: 160 credits

Overall I like it. All the duos are pretty close in skill, so they should be close in CCV. You only need 10 more credits than somebody to guarantee you get a certain player instead of them. Ace would be higher, but Rain hasn’t been hot lately. And Galv is low key playing like a beast in customs, but Rick has been dead for months so they definitely deserve the most credits. Whaddya guys think?
