Do you know what the eye-test is? It’s a term often used by analysts to describe one of the best/the best ways to rate a team or player but do you know how?

Yep but I need this poll as evidence for a future thread I’m going to make on why people don’t know how to judge teams/players and why they rely on the massively flawed hltv rankings too much

True but I personally think that it is a much more interesting place to debate historical and current topics on because of how subjective it can be. Stats are a great place to start a convocation but a terrible place to finish

Im not degrading it. I dont think stats are the most important just defining it. I agree with you tho :) clearly Niko is not the best IGL but stats say so

True, I’m looking to make a point about why the hltv rankings are massively flawed and why these rankings skew how we interpret players and that maybe we’d be better off without a ranking and in-depth stats unless they are as perfect as you could possibly make them in #3. The poll is for a bit of data to back myself up

I still think stats are good as long as we are not dumb. which is unfortunately not the case

Yeah that is true, too many people can’t tell how to interpret the game by themselves so they rely on numbers to speak for them and that leads to a vast amount of community misconception.

because if you eye-test you have to really look player one by one. I dont think anyone wants to do that. Then most people opinion is based on what they can see from observer point of view. So their own opinion is already disturbed by external sources.

Yeah ofc that is somewhat true but at least if your eye-test isn’t that developed, trust an analyst who does to tell you about it.

How on earth is this tied, I don't understand? I feel like its obvious what the eye test is.

It may see obvious to us and especially North American’s but it isn’t a term commonly used in European sports so I guess that’s why. People base their whole opinion on stats and that’s an issue

You ask yourself “do I like this player” and if the answer is no you create/post laugh threads on hltv

The csgo Eyetest is when a person uses his/her eyes to look at a player and see how good the player is by looking at them. I dont even know why people dont get this, its obvious.

The results are so bad cause its middle of the night EU time and all the NA brains are on now making humans look stupid....

I thought it was that way becuase I heard it in relation to NHL quite a lot. I don’t watch soccer/football so I’m not sure here but for the short time I did nothing about the eye-test vs stats was ever referred to.

what do you mean? they use it for hockey all the time lmao. especially with the prevalence of advanced analytics now, a lot of people will say things like "yea, his Corsi numbers are really nice, but does he pass the eye test?" it's become a pretty common term in NA, at least for hockey.

imo eye test usually revolves around a player being aware of a situation, winning 1v1 clutches, getting solid kills and being a good trader. Those are also the "impact" things that ratings don't show. These are the things that keep Perfecto, SANJI and FalleN from being called bad straight up because they do have some sort of impact that we can actually see during the game

It is about how many times a player looks at different things a minute. The more eye movements, the better. ez
