Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to do some analysis of macro skills of players from different leagues and make some deductions from it, using replays. It's easy to find replays of pro players but for lower leagues it's not so easy.

Where I can find a lot (100+ per league) of recent (couple of months old) replays of bronze / silver / platinum / diamond players replays?

I'm fine with resources not on English (i.e. Chinese or Korean)

I was just thinking, shouldn't you be trying for replays from the same region? For example, a gold level player in Korea is probably a Masters level player in NA. –  Sorean Dec 16 '11 at 5:23
    
@Sorean yes, I would prefer one region so data will be representative –  Meta Dec 16 '11 at 7:05

You can filter out the replays they have uploaded to this website: http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays

Click on the 1v1 option and then further down you can see the league rankings, unfortunately it seems like they only have 40 at a time.

yes, I've tried to search on sc2replayed. Unfortunately there is only 3 replays of bronze after 17 sep. Similar situation for other leagues. –  Meta Dec 15 '11 at 22:10
    
Sadly sites like that are driven by user uploads. You could try contacting the people of skillcraft.ca They conducted a research project a while ago that got the required information that you're looking for: teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=264852 Just not sure if they would be willing to share their info. –  Sorean Dec 15 '11 at 22:14
    
yep. I've contacted Mark yesterday and he said they will probably share replays but after a month or so (after they completed their own analysis). But month... it's pretty long. –  Meta Dec 16 '11 at 5:54
    
Yeah I can't really think or know of any other resources. I recall reading a study/write-up on Team Liquid a few months about about the correlation of macro abilities and leagues. What kind of metrics are you going for? –  Sorean Dec 16 '11 at 7:22
    
I'm going to analyze unspent resources / supply blocks –  Meta Dec 16 '11 at 13:20

I've ended up with gamereplays (search page)

For example I've found there about 150 bronze replays submited since 1 Oct. That's what I've searched for.

@Sorean Thank you! <3
