What countries do you think are best in ST per capita? For me the 1st place almost obviously goes to Sweden with players like myself, Sidey, Exa, Traxx, Stek and historically LL, be3r[behh] and many more. But after that it gets harder? USA probably got more pros than for instance NL, Norway or Belgium. But is a lot bigger too. For instance they are around 60 times as big as Norway. That means just Amir would constitute 60 world-class players from USA. But yeah its a bit weird to compare like this.

The question is entirely impossible to answer, lol.

Sure, you can take number of STs from Sweden and divide by Swedish population... but that's like saying Sweden BLOWS at American Football because they have no super great teams.

You must consider how many people even play WarCraft. Then you must consider the group dynamic (IE, so few Americans play ST to begin with, obviously it is that much harder to recruit from the American pool).


Such statistics you, nor anyone, has access to.

Sweden do suck at american football lol.

Btw what kind of statistics is it that you want? The question is what country is best at sheeptag per capita. Which means per citizen. Why would we have to consider how many people play Warcraft?

For me its fairly obvious that USA do not have 30 times better players than Sweden. Its even a question if you have better players than Sweden at all.

Sweden vs USA in a ST game could get kind of interesting.

Shoop, Traxx, Exa, Beeeh, Stek vs whoever you got availeble, I am pretty sure we would win. ^^

I think Sweden is without competition for the first place if you consider how many people live here and how good sheeptagplayers we have had both historically and atm. After us in a historic perspective it gets more interesting. Maybe NL with players like CMK, DragonRuler, Jenuwar, etc?

Because if 1000 Americans play and 100 Swedes play.
And 5% of these communities are considered great at ST.
That means 50 Americans, and 5 Swedes.

Yet that correlates to Sweden having three times more "per capita" players.


You want to analyze a subset of a subset, and then compare that to the whole. Similar to American Football, of course Sweden will perform badly because their first subset, those who even play American Football, makes the second subset (those who are good at American Football) extremely poorly.


If you knew anything about statistics, you'd realize why looking at just general populations of countries is retarded in this respect.
And even then, such statistics are hardly useful at best, because they can be easily explained away by group dynamics of recruitment.

Chakra, the thing is that I am not comparing a "subset of a subset".

Btw, what do you mean with "in this respect" in this sentence?
"If you knew anything about statistics, you'd realize why looking at just general populations of countries is retarded in this respect.

Noone is arguing against Sweden sucking in American Football and yes the main reason is probably that noone in Sweden gives a shit about it. What is your point and how is it incorrect to say that USA is a lot better than Sweden in American Football?

Edit : I just wanted to let everyone know Chakra realized his errors when we took the discussion on BNet and in usual Chakrastyle trolled and when that didnt work squelched me. Smile

So apparently Shoop doesn't understand what I was saying.

It is obvious to anyone with a brain that you can get "STers per capita." What I was saying is that such a statistic is useless and doesn't correlate to the best ST country, as which is Shoop's interior motive.

And if we stuck to such a statistic, this entire thread is about as retarded and contentless as Sidey's worst forum posters thread.

It's funny that Shoop vehemently argues against useless statistics being put into the map, but when useless statistics can benefit him, such as this, he thinks they are good/interesting. ^^

I havent argued that this statistics is usefull in any way. And I have especially not argued that it should be put into the map. If you didnt mean what you wrote it is your problem, dont blame it on me.

Lets analyze your post.

"The question is entirely impossible to answer, lol.

Sure, you can take number of STs from Sweden and divide by Swedish population... but that's like saying Sweden BLOWS at American Football because they have no super great teams.

You must consider how many people even play WarCraft. Then you must consider the group dynamic (IE, so few Americans play ST to begin with, obviously it is that much harder to recruit from the American pool).


Such statistics you, nor anyone, has access to."

Your first statement is that it is impossible to answer this question. Arguably thats true, in the same sense as we cant answer who is the best sheeptagplayer etc. That I have no problem with.

But your arguments to why it is impossible is interesting. First you write some irrelevant freakshit about "thats like saying Sweden BLOWS at American Football". We do, wtf is the problem here lol?

But then you write "You must consider how many people even play WarCraft" WITHOUT explaining why. This either mean that you missformulated yourself or that you think that you need to consider how many people play WC in order to answer the question what the best ST country per capita is?

Afterwards I gave you plenty of chances, both here and on BNet, to explain what you meant by this and NOWHERE did you write it was the question "best st country per capita" you had a problem with.

Next time, swallow your pride and admit you made a misstake so we wont have to go through with this. Obviously you think the question is irrelevant. Write that instead of mass bullshit.

norway has the highest average skill -> norway is best.

sweden/usa has many good players through history. top 5 usa/sweden would SHIT on norway. but they've had a lot of bad players as well.



compile every swedish sheeptagger through history, and draw a random team of 5 players. do the same with norway and usa. norway would be the best team in (rough estimation) over 50% of instances, based on the relative skill of the players during their time(we consider fur1iouz a tier 1 player etc).

LT has the highest average skill (nightmare = average), but if we only consider countries that has had 5 or more players, norway is rank 1.

Yeah i already discussed this matter with shoop. Lithuania is ranked nr 1 in average skill, but its not fair since theres only 1 player. Most fairest would be to rank countries who had 5 or more players.

What players did Norway have btw? I remember there was one or two good players back in the days, and maybe some others, but I forgot all names.

from what i can remember now: me, furiouz, ninken, lizo, wizardwoman(roc kid). there were probably a few more. pigonfire[behh]/jeggaro as well.

say that me/furiouz are tier 1, ninken/jeggaro tier 2, lizo tier 3. ill put the average of pig/wizard between tier 3 and 4(seen them play 2-3 times each, no idea how good they really are). you get a weak tier 2 average.

average for usa is tier 4 with the monster amount of bad players. average for sweden is between tier 2 and 3, most likely closer to tier 3.




very rough, biased and limited estimation, but that's my case for norway Very Happy

Wizardwoman is JokerWOLF & he and Lizo were never tier 3.Very Happy

- i think, the >average< of Germany is very good also.
If we take people like: Martin,kotaro,Damiano,Mungo,Tay,Hanku,Laauch,Blitz,...
I could Name a Lot more.
But ye, we've bad peoPle also: exodus, firewolf and some more.
I still think, we have one of the best averages.

Problem is with germany is that it hasn't produced any top skill players. All of ur named above are either average or upper average skill. Germanys average would be like weak tier 3 at best.

lizo is one of the most underrated players. his wolfing is bad but his massing can be quite good. he's young and doesn't care enough about winning to focus 100% every game, but the skill is there.

if we're talking about 4 tiers, lizo is definitely tier 3 imo. not that tier 3 is some great achievement..but yeah Very Happy




germany = represents alot of players, and their TOP players(the ones you mentioned) are tier 2-3. get lost with this shit rofl. your average is between tier 3 and 4.

Tier 2 - 3. Or you just overrate LizO? But I don't care about one single person, germany has a lot of good players,yes, not the best. But our average is good because of a lot very good players and less bad. For example. Sweden's average is now worse because of new Swedish sheeptagger like sheepylove,sheepyskill & a lot of more others I won't note.
