Hatstats is a statistics website for Hattrick matches. It was originally created and maintained by an Oceania Hattrick player, Griggle. It has since been re-released by GM-Cyntech. Griggle used a numerical score based on the teams ratings in the match as an overall measurement compare the teams. This rating has since become an integral feature of many other statistical websites and programs.
How it's calculated
It is calculated from the ratings as follows:
The Attack and Defence Ratings are simply added up from the left, middle and right ratings. The ratings have to be transformed from skills into numbers first, of course. This is done the following way:
|HatStat value per rating|
|Denomination||very low||low||high||very high|
The rating may not agree exactly with the Supporter Statistics function "Best Match Ever", due to differences in the way the two are calculated, but both are intended as a quick summary of a team's performance in a match. Due to several factors (tactics, actual distribution of scoring opportunities), it is not necessarily the most accurate way to determine which team was most likely to win a game, but it's a quick and easy way to get a rough idea of the relative strengths of teams. Other, more complex, rating systems take tactics, scoring chance distribution, and various other factors into account, but this is at the cost of the simplicity and ease of calculation that Hatstats ratings provide.
