Stage Data

Stages1.jpg
Stages4.jpg
Stages2.jpg
Stages3.jpg

By analyzing the percentages given out by Judd at the end of a match, it is possible to know what a level's inkable surface area is. For instance, at the end of a match, if one team gets 400 Battle Points and the other gets 600 (for a total of 1000 points of turf inked), and the percentages for each are 33.3% and 50%, respectively, that means the stage's total possible turf area is 1200 points (400 * (1 / 0.333) = 600 * (1 / 0.5) = 1200).

However, since the display is rounded down, the result may sometimes be ambiguous and multiple results need to be intersected to reach the exact number. For example, for 600p and 50%, any total in the range 1198-1200p would result in 50.0% when rounding down to 0.1% - but if another result was collected showing that 751p is 62.5% (possible totals: 1200-1201p), the only possible value that satisfies both is exactly 1200p. Calculating using the total (in the example above, (400 + 600) * (1 / (0.333 + 0.5)) ) should be avoided, as it doubles the margin of error and could give even less accurate results.
