Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

As you may have read in the forum, I'm blocked by the unaivalabilyty of JMP, so I cant'do some analyses.

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

My statist software JMP licence has expired, and have to wait till monday to get the new. From what I have (data analysis excel only -:( ) Bison seems to be an outlier: is it possible that CEGT elo rfers to a newer edition?

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

I think that the ratings you give are more than enough. The only trouble are the misssing values. At first analysis, missing engines sould be ignored: filling up missings needs at least a 2-step procedure.. it is a bit time consuming, so better analyses will follow... later...
