Character Guides, Match-Up Charts, and More: Collected Links to Important Resources

Thanks for moving these guides over, MysticJuicer! I had started saving the webpages to my computer just in case these didn’t make it. We must preserve ancient forums knowledge!

Added a bunch of the older guides. Next guide to be imported is ARMed_PIrate’s Setsuki guide. If anyone is willing to help out with this, I’d be very grateful. It’s been a busy week and it’s going to be a busy weekend - I don’t want these resources to disappear with the old forums.

I’m just doing a quick copy-paste with some bolding of key sections. Copying images over is very easy too. Remember to credit the writer if the guide isn’t yours.


I have saved all of the guides here: so that should make one step a bit easier. :slight_smile:

Can my character overview/basics thread be added to the links?


With pleasure! Done.

Hey, so I have some questions about the historical matchup chart. These are not requests, unless they are fairly easy to do. I have no idea how hard sheets are to edit/expand.

  1. Would it be possible to sort players results in a way? Who has the most recorded tournament matches/sets/wins/losses?

  2. See what characters has the most tournament wins?

Not in the sheet itself, no, but you can download an offline copy of the historical match-up chart and perform any data analysis you want on it. Go to ‘file’ > ‘download’ > ‘Excel’ and you’ll get an offline Excel file version. Then you can create a new tab and do whatever you want with it.

Most tournament wins will be either Zane or Troq, or possibly DeGrey, guaranteed. They’re the most played characters with the highest percentage win rates.


I might make a copy of the Google Sheet and see if there’s a way to do it without messing things up. For some reason I’ve been enjoying leaning new things about Sheets recently, so if I can get it to work maybe you could add it back to your version? Alternatively, maybe you’ve already tried and it’s impossible, in which case that’s a shame.

It’s definitely possible to do both of those things in the sheet, but I’m hesitant to do either. Part of it is philosophical: I don’t want to create a leaderboard, because leaderboards are contentious, and my goal is mainly to provide aggregated information. Part of it is practical: the last set of changes made to the sheet significantly slowed its performance, and I don’t want to further slow it down unless it is a critical item.


@SG_Staff I’d like to edit the original post, but it appears I can’t do that anymore? I thought it was a wiki? Is it possible to make it a wiki, still?



  1. Yomi Historical ELO Calculator: This spreadsheet uses the historical results of tournament matches recorded to calculate ELO ratings for players. It can be used to seed tournaments, or review your ELO over time.

@vengefulpickle the ELO list appears to only have like 5% of the player base on it for some reason.

I’ll take a look. @mysticjuicer, can you update that link to point to the v2 sheet?

Thanks for the reminder! Fixed.

Also, it seems that parts of the sheet are currently not working (showing a bunch of #N/A’s, sheet is set to view only, etc.)

Ok, the sheet is up and running again. I’m not sure whether it will update for other people after a match is played… I guess I should try loading it up as an anonymous user and see what happens.

I also need to do some additional work to make sure the ELO calculation runs all the way through consistently. There’s 30 second timelimit that it sometimes runs over, which ends up breaking everything, but I have thoughts about ways to break up the calculation so that it always finishes.


I’ve been maintaining the Yomi Tournament Calendar with as many matches as I can (subject to my own ability to get matches on the calendar before they’re played). Matches on that calendar also are tweeted out by the Yomi Tournaments twitter account.
