The Dark Angels are Champions for 2012 and we should be proud. The overall effort of the DA sub-forum for LPC – 2012 can be found in the following threads:
“Librarium's Painting Challenge 2012 - Phase I – Taking the vow”
“Librarium’s Painting Challenge 2012 - Phase II – Keeping the promise”
But the LPC was a big effort from a lot of people -not just DAs- and this is an attempt for an overview of the results of the whole event.
First, the statistics.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MY STATISTICS DIFFER SOMEWHAT FROM SIGISMUND HIMSELF. I GO WITH MINE AND WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS IN RELATION TO MY NUMBERS.
The LPC as a whole:
This year was the LPC with the highest vow count. The total vows submitted across all sub-forums stood at 325 – a 25% increase from 261 in 2011 which in turn stood 24% higher from the 211 vow count of 2010. The outcome can also be considered the most successful as 148 completions were the most ever and also represent an increase from last year’s completion rate (46% vs. 41% in 2011). So not only the number of completions was higher but the implied commitment also increased vs. last year. So I’d say that this was the most successful LPC todate.
It is evident that this year the DAs scored the highest in both the absolute amount of completions and completion rate (excluding the single vow sub-forums). With the second highest vow-count of 52 (which itself represented a 93% increase compared to 2011) the DAs delivered an unprecedented 81% completion rate (single vow forums notwithstanding). I’d say this would be too hard a record to break even by DAs in the future…Needless to say that the record 42 completions the DAs easily secured the title of the 2012 Champion.
Blood Angels with a last minute effort managed to maintain their usual high levels of completions (25) but this year this was done against a record-high vow count (60). This translated to a decline of their completion rate to 42% vs. a more substantial 47% last year and even more robust 55% in 2010. Still they managed to be the sub-forum with the second largest completion-count, marginally beating last year’s performance. If DAs had scored close to their historic levels, BAs would undoubtedly be the winners again this year.
The BTs, was the third sub-forum in terms of vow submissions, (I believe taking vows is a national sport for these guys ) had better completion rates compared to BAs (46%) but the absolute amount of completions was somewhat lower at 22. However it was way better to last year’s results of just 10. I think the BTs showed impressive dedication this year (again a trait of their faction ) as they showed the second highest increase in completions (+120%!)
IA, the fourth largest in terms of vow submissions (39 counting two that are marked [IA?]), had a marginally better performance in absolute completions compared to last year (15 vs. 14 in 2011) but a sharp decline in their completion rate compared to last year (39% vs. 52%).
The following table shows the completions per sub-forum, their completion rates (i.e. completions per submitted vows per sub-forum - a measure of dedication to the cause if you wish ) as well as the performance in the previous years (the sub-forum competition started in 2010).
So, with no further ado here are the results:
|Sub-forum||Completions 2012||Completions 2011||Completions 2010||Completion rate 2012||Completion rate 2011||Completion rate 2010|
|Index Astartes (1)||15||14||9||38%||52%||39%|
|Liber Astartes (2)||8||9||12||32%||20%||34%|
|Legio exclusive (3)||2||2||-||40%||-||-|
|Legio-all inclusive (4)||6||-||-||50%||-||-|
Phew! The code for this table alone qualified me as a Techmarine!
1. I have included the vows of Lord Bearer and Molloch in IAs total vows raising them to 39. Both were denoted [IA?] by Sigismund Himself. Excluding them the completion rate stands at 41% (neither completed their vows).
2. I have included the vow of Psyberius Deamonbane as he declared for LAs in his WIP thread. He is denoted [?] by Sigismund Himself.
3. Legio Exclusive are the vows that were pledged to Legio exclusively in order to avoid double counting.
4. Legio- all inclusive, includes all the Legio vows, even those that were pledgeD for other sub-forums as well.
So, what do you guys make of these statistics? I would very much like to read opinions and obviously members that frequent other sub-forums are also very welcome to contribute their thoughts!
