Team vs. Team
While network approaches are used to study how the assembly of teams impacts their performance, there has been little attention to assess the impact of assembly on the relative performance of two teams in a head to head contest. In this project, we focus specifically on assembly factors that influence performance of team contests in sports and online games. Using historical data from Cricket, soccer, basketball, and e-sport Dota 2, we determine the attributes and relational factors that help a team to defeat the opponent.
