    Lightbulb A Basic Analysis Of European PUG Statistics In 2015 (#UT4.eu)

    One month ago I wrote a A Basic Analysis Of North American PUG Statistics In 2015 (#ut4pugs). Interestingly enough, most North American gamers that I spoke with seemed equally interested in what kind of PUG action European gamers were getting. So I've written this up in hopes of shedding some light on this topic.

    Note: It has come to my attention that PUGs for the European Community are often organized outside of the channel on the HUBs themselves. Usually public matches or chance gatherings that evolve into actual PUGs. Unfortunately, such matches cannot be reliably tracked and the scope of this project only recognizes matches organized in the official IRC channels. This data was generated directly from the PUGbot logs for the #UT4.pug and #UT4.eu IRC channels. It is painstakingly accurate and 100% complete.

    How Was The Number Of Unique PUGs Determined?
    When each PUG starts, the PUGbots say something unique in chat that I can use to identify the start of each match; pug has been filled. If I count these unique lines I will have a grand total. Unfortunately, some PUGs will stop before teams can be picked because one player leaves. When this happens LBot says something else unique; pug stopped because. Those occurrences are tallied and subtracted from the previous grand total. Furthermore, this list is manually scanned to remove any instances of people quoting LBot saying, pug has been filled. What we have left is the exact amount of legitimate PUGs. The data is then formatted to be exported into Microsoft Excel.

    So What Did You Discover?
    The very first PUG was held on May 18th, 2015. I followed the PUG activity all the way up to December 31st 2015. So this analysis covers 7.5 months of PUGing. What I have below is what I thought folks would find useful. If you can think of another statistic that this data might reveal, please let me know and I'd be happy to figure the percentages.

    1. What are the best days of the week to try and PUG?
      • Saturday and Sunday
    2. During what hours do the majority of PUGs happen?
      • 8:00AM to 12:00PM CET (GMT +1) / 1:00AM to 5:00AM EST (GMT -5)
        60.19% of all PUGs in 2015 occurred during this time frame.
    3. How many PUGs were held in 2015?
      • 1188
    4. What is the most popular game type?
      • Instagib Capture The Flag
    5. Over the last 7.5 months, what was the most active period of time?
      • 10/25/15 - 11/28/15; 49.33% of all PUGs occurred during these 5 weeks, out of 15 weeks total.
    6. How much time does this data cover exactly?
      • Percentage of 2015: 62.23%
      • Start Of Data: May 18, 2015 @ 02:15:07 PM CET (GMT +1)
      • End Of Data: December 31, 2015 @ 11:59:59 PM CET (GMT +1)
      • Total Time: 227 days, 3 hours, 44 minutes and 52 seconds
