The blocking analysis follows a number of steps:
This approach can be more informative than traditional blocking stats (simple counts of block kills or touches) because it gives a more accurate reflection of the participation of an individual blocker, including in double- or triple-blocks. It can reveal blockers that have an influence on the opposition's attack, even if that influence does not show itself as direct block kills or touches.
The accuracy of the blocking report for your particular data set will depend on how closely the blocking patterns of your team follow the assumed blocking patterns. Also note that only "standard" attack combinations (the DataVolley defaults) are generally recognized. Unknown codes will be flagged during the reporting.
Variations to these assumptions are possible if your team does not follow the above patterns. For example, the position of each blocker can be inferred from the data, rather than assuming the blocking positions described above. For this or other functionality (e.g. recognizing your custom attack combination codes, or bulk processing of multiple files), contact .
