  • Top 100 Basers of All-Time

    For Basing Nerds only! Extremely dorky things to follow.



    Top 100 Basers of All-Time

    Every season. Every final. Every champion.

    All 35 seasons are now included and available in a searchable document here.

    Best viewed on a 1920x1080 monitor or larger.



    Notes

    S5 is the first TWLB season. There was no basing or javs S1-S4.

    S12-S22 is 99% correct, listing every winner and runner-up, using readily available box scores from the TWL website. (requires mod access to change the seasons, or the game ID codes to see every season)

    S6 is now 99% correct thanks to Ease tracking down the box scores in forums.

    S7 is also 99% correct thanks to Brookus uploading video from Round 2 and 3 of the Finals. Rab found Round 1 here and I've updated it.

    S8 is now 99% correct thanks to Rab tracking down the Finals box scores here and here via Wayback Machine.

    S9 is now 95% correct thanks to Ease getting me some links using the old TWLM website. (requires plugging in player's TWD ID in the address bar, selecting Season 9, and checking the -Finals- vs. Syndicate scores for Game 73).


    S10 still doesn't have Finals box scores, but gleaned some useful roster info from TWLM website, as it does have the entire regular season.

    S5 is a black hole. S10 and S11 are 80% correct. Stayon and Sarger helped me years ago giving me lineups from memory. The rest is reconstructed from TWL History, forum posts, and the Wayback Machine. Props to Rab for hunting down the 2005 TWDT-B runner-ups for me.

    If you have screenshots/boxscores/video of the TWLB semis or finals from those seasons, let me know and I'll update the sheet.

    Thanks to JAMAL, Spezza, and Ease for going through the Skill ratings for me and providing feedback. I took pretty much all their recommendations.

    I tried to rate older players (Koan/Spybreak/Brookus/etc.) and rivals (Stayon/Commodo/Thix/etc.) as generously as possible, but ultimately this list is my subjective opinion. For older players, I talked to elite basers from the era and leaned on All-Star voting threads from S6/S7/S8/etc., which helpfully listed how many votes each player got in every ship.

    Rating

    The rating is 70% Skill, 30% Championships.

    Within that 30%, the weighting is 75% TWL/25% TWDT (so a TWLB title is worth 3x a TWDT-B title.) How the 30% is counted on the sheet:



    Only finals starters who played the majority of winning rounds in Finals get the dark gold color, which helps weed out useless people like Voth.

    This also provides a nice, hefty, objective weight to the rankings to move players up or down, since the Skill rating is subjective opinion.

    Final Thoughts

    Even if you disagree with the ratings, this provides a nice database to look up basers, where they played, who won what season, etc. The list
    has to be ordered in some fashion, anyway.

    There's also a Hot tab on the sheet, which shows you which players were on top of the basing world at every point in history from 2002 to 2019.

    Every column averages the previous 5 seasons, so you can see basers rise and fall as time progresses from left to right, with Disoblige players dominating
    leagues, then Dice taking the mantle, Penetrate having the briefest glimpse of the top, and then finally Thunder wresting the summit from Dicers.

    Wondered what you wanted that data for, this is cool.

    Requests:
    - Could you combine stats from my old name into my new name?
    - Is there an easy way to filter to only show active players?

      Gimme your old name and I can add it, sure.

      No filter, but I can do it manually for you, only takes a minute.

                i never knew you cared. out of all the undeserved TWL title winners in history (and there are MANY), you agree that i am, in fact, the best.

                hey in all seriousness, why aren't you signed up for mafia? i could see you and exalt getting into a "which post has a higher word count" dick measuring contest and it would probably be legendary. https://forums.trenchwars.com/forum/...om-of-westeros

                  Hard pass on Mafia, Voth.

                  Rab and Ease tracked down S6, S7, S8 and S9 finals for me, and I've updated the sheet. Got some info from S10, but TWLM doesn't have that final.

                  Meaning only S5 (TWLB Cup), S10, and S11 are missing. If you have screenshots, video, or boxscores of those TWLB seasons (particularly the finals), let me know.

                  Thanks!

                      I took part in TWLB season 6 for -Final- when they won that season. I also helped Terrorist in TWDT season 2019 when they tripled crowned. What is this conspiracy theory to write me out of the history books?! sheesh.
