SC2K5

GameFAQs Summer 2005 Character Contest

The SC2K5 SFF-Adjusted Extrapolated Standings

About the SFF-Adjusted SC2K5 Extrapolated Standings

The follwing adjustments were made:

  • Samus: +20% (Mario)
  • Ness: +38.16% (Mario)
  • Yoshi: +17.16% (Mega Man)
  • Pac-Man: +41.37% (Yoshi)

A +20% adjust for Samus was used because it seems sensible, and optimal when looking at Samus, Ganon, and Auron. A +20% adjustment is also very similar to giving Samus the average value of Mario and Crono.

For the sake of simplicity, Ness was given his 2K4 value (which affects Carl Johnson).

Yoshi was adjusted by keeping Laharl constant with his SC2K4 value.

The SC2K5 Extrapolated Standings

Notes on the SC2K5 Extrapolated Standings

The Base Link values were obtained by doing least squares computations comparing character strengths from SC2K4 to SC2K5.

A least squares that included the following characters (which I selected as the most logical to use):
Crono, Mega Man, Sonic, Zero, Ryu, Vivi, Kefka, Solid Snake, Sora, Alucard

Resulted in an optimal scalar of 1.102384. This scalar ends up being very similar to keeping Kefka, Crono, Mega Man, Cloud, or Vivi constant.

If you use the characters above but exclude Sora and Alucard, you get an optimal scalar of 1.075213. This ends up essentially being the same thing as keeping Link constant (from 2K4 to 2K5).
