Battleship: Stats

The following are the latest statistics from my Battleship game, where you can play against a probabilistic algorithm (which I generously refer to as an AI). Most of these charts (except the very first one) ignore games played using the "play for me" option. Got another idea for how I could use all this data? Please let me know!

AI Ships


The first board above is a heat map of player ships from every single game, regardless of any options chosen by the player. This is the data set used by the "Learning" AI Mode to better predict player ship locations. Players seem to favour putting their ships away from the center.

The other board is a heat map of all AI ship locations over all games. The AI places its ships randomly; the fact that this heat map closely resembles the one provided by the Probability Calculator for a blank board means this random ship placement is behaving as expected.
