Continuing my series, I give you the Matchup Rankings for the LCS. These are the rankings looking at how players performed in champion specific matchups across the year normalized across all of professional Lol.
Background: We see a lot of rankings based on differentials, but those have always bothered me a lot of the time. Players are playing losing champion matchups and then being attacked later (after people forget the matchups) for having a low CS differential or gold differential for the year. So I wanted to make a matchup-proof ranking.
To further elaborate, what this ranking is doing is looking at how, for example, a pro played Leblanc into Zoe and comparing against how every other mid or top laner pro player played that matchup. So if you score really high, that could mean every game this season you were down in CS, but what it would also mean, is that when other pros played that EXACT same matchup, they were even more down in CS. So if Chovy was down 15 cs in a matchup, that probably means on average, other pros were down somewhere between 20-30 cs in that same matchup, as an example, as Chovy has a good score.
So what is v3. v1 and v2 did a good job of accounting for laning statistics, those are obviously still included. But I have now focused on adding three more statistics/things: roaming/towers and game effectiveness. (1) Roaming/Towers looks at how often you were involved with first bloods outside of your lane and also your gold income outside of CS. If you roam and get a kill, what did it cost? I think people tend to forget about turret plates in pro play. And (2) game effectiveness, this looks at how much damage you are doing over the amount of gold you are getting as well as your ability to translate that into wins. (Please keep in mind these stats are also normalized against champion matchups) And (3) JUNGLERS NOW INCLUDED. (Also, I can do bot lanes, but it is a lot more work because of how champs work down there and I have not gotten to creating the code for that yet, sorry.)

P.S. AS ALWAYS, additional shoutout to https://oracleselixir.com/ for the data, Tim Sevenhuysen is doing great work out there.
edit: The data is normalized so that you can compare across categories, a 99 doesn't mean 99 CS diff, it means 99th percentile (you are the best) for that statistic. The total is the sum across the categories
