    How is Kakolewska doing? I only saw her stats and they look very decent, but didn't see her playing. In OrlenLiga she was scoring regullary 15-20 points (or more sometimes) even in 3 sets games... same thing in NT, she was definitely Poland's "go-to" player next to Smarzek... I don't see it from stats here, but yeah I guess there's no need to rely so much on MB's attack when u have Carcaces and Rahimova on the court ;D

    thank you all for voting, the poll is closed now xD

    maybe I could now add a bit more of information just in case anyone was curious what was it for. I didn't want to say it earlier not to influence the results.

    The perfect scenario, to consider such an subjective judgement super sensible would be an answer, where the equation R / D * D / S = R / S would hold- that would mean that 3x3 matrix I obtained from this answer is transitive. What my research is about, I compare different methods of generating the closest transitive matrices to the ones I generated from your answers

    thank you guys you did great!! It's GOOD that your anwswers didn't obey this R / D * D / S = R / S equation (except @Let's go orange and @losta - but I couldn't use your answer because 4/5 was not on the scale ;P), it's almost always like this when companies use something similar and it's OK because they are supposed to be subjective and intuitive! in fact I would be screwed if you all gave me the transitive matrices right away on the plate :D

    thx again ppl, ciao!

    beri, you we made some excellent points! I agree that this choice should not be strictly about numbers. And it will not be in this case, the results I'm looking for concern the matrices generated from the results :D so it is not about finding some golden numbers-based algorythm picking best players basing on raw numbers ;p it's about something else completely but I will not bore you with details ;P

    thank you guys for your help, other votes more than welcome ;*

    Hey you guys, I'm writing my bachelor's thesis and since I'm explaining the problem it referrs to on a volleyball-related example, I thought that it would be cool to collect some real data from people who know a thing or two about volleyball. That's why I came up with an idea of posting here.

    OK so not to bore you with details what is it for etc:

    We are picking the best libero of the tournament. I want to put this choice into more "numbers-like" approach and for starters, we introduce 3 categories: R - reception, D - defense, S - setting. What I need to ask you is to decide, totally subjective opinion, how many times the factor R,D,S are more important from each other, when it comes to judging libero's performance. For example:

    Reception is 3 times more important than Defense will be written as R - D : 3

    Defense is 2 times more important than Setting: D - S : 2

    So i need you to write down 3 numbers from {1,2,3,4,5}, you decide how many times more important the components Recpetion, Defense, Setting

    R - D :

    R - S :

    D - S:

    if you would like to say that reception is 5 times LESS important than defense, write R - D : 1/5

    1 means equal importance, R - S : 1 would mean reception is as important as setting

    I would appreciate a few opinions, it would be cool to have a bit more data than my own judgement only. Just write what comes into your head :)

    Thanks in advance ;)

    I couldn't believe when I read about what happened to her, that someone can be soo unlucky. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this girl and I do feel very sorry for her, that's obvious... but I still think it was funny (what I wrote, not her injury), sorry if anyone got offended (welcome to 2018)

    good luck Megan #4 ! ;*

    after seeing Fener - Moscow today, I think Chemik could come up with some surprises. Maybe not win the pool, but I can picture them upsetting any of these two. Let's not forget that they have a very good coach this year.

    Haak looks so gracefull innocent...

    ...and than she smashes that f*ng ball almost killing someone on the other side :D

    her ball control is amazing (not only in attack), you can just tell that she used to play beach volleyball

    I think with Ognjenovic reinforcing Dinamo Moscow, they will reach Final Four for sure as far as Gonchi (xD) is healthy (is she?). Maja is one of the very few setters in the world who can confuse opponent's block despite of playing a high ball (which possibly will be the case, since it's a Russian team)

    edit: how long will Twardowska recover? who can be the Polish OH, I have literally no idea... Elzbieta Skowronska is the only player who came across my mind, where is she playing this season?

    if u are outside of Poland u need to pay 10 euro a month to watch everything that was added after II 2018 I think


    does someone know if there is any chance that Werblinska would join Kalisz? I haven't heard any rumors, just wondering how cool it would be to see her on the court again... and since Kalisz is in LSK now, I thought she would maybe join before the transfers deadline... well, the nr 1 shirt is taken already, so i guess it's not possible :D

    come on, they first pick the Team, and only later they pick the Pool... why not open them at the same time? it would a bit more easy to believe...

    besides, two balls with sth black written on them, the guy is staring at them all the time... I don't know...

    watch 7:10-7:45 the guy on the left, he was staring at the balls all the time and when they say USA and he grabbed directly the one with the other group and didn't let go of it while shaking the balls. Once he "picked" the pool, the Brazilian guy seeing this, gave his friends "a look"

    I'm really not a conspiracy theories person but this is just ridicoulous

    PS KK15, I didn't call anyone idiot what is wrong with u?
