    Purpose:
    Use stats from the VPN App to create an algorithm that ranks players from ACL XII.

    What We Are Measuring:
    We are measuring how a player performed relative to all players who played in the same position during the same season. A score of zero indicates that the player performed at the exact average for his position. A positive score indicates that he performed above the average, and a negative score indicates that he performed below the average.

    Methodology:
    -- Collect match reports for every regular season game in ACL XII
    -- For each match, assign points to players based on the position they played and the stats they earned
    -- Make adjustments to take into account the relative strength of the opponent
    -- Make adjustments so that points earned in different positions are 100% comparable in the end

    Disclaimers:
    -- Players who are good at collecting stats will get more love from algorithms, so don't take it personally
    -- If you believe one player should be ahead of another based on the raw stats, then the most likely explanation is that they played different positions on the pitch
    -- Some players may have been boosted if their club failed to report stats for losses

    Key Stats Considered:
    -- Goals
    -- Assists
    -- MOTMs
    -- Clean Sheets
    -- Goal Contribution
    -- Goals For
    -- Goals Against

    Talking Points

    -- Vallejos was, by some distance, the dominant player this season. That's because his offensive numbers were comparable to a ST even though he played CM, and he also got some credit for Serenity's excellent defensive season.

    -- There is some interesting stuff going on in the CDM and FB rankings. To summarize, Artistic and Serenity had very comparable seasons defensively, which led to similar stats for a lot of their players. However, a key differentiating factor was the relative strength of the opponent. Because Artistic players gained their stats while playing against tougher opponents, they overtook the Serenity players in the CDM and FB rankings.

    -- Fucking Vahlstrom got carried.
