Simulating a formation

Share:

Description

Simulates a formation against another formations (several formations of away are possible).

Usage

1
unitedSim(home, ..., r, preventGoalGK = 1/14, preventGoalSW = 1/15)

Arguments

home

home team (an object of the S4class formation)

...

several objects of the class formation

r

number of replications for the simulation of hardness and penalties, can be missing (exact results will be computed)

preventGoalGK

factor multiplicied with the strength of the GK for computing the probability of preventing a goal by the goalkeeper

preventGoalSW

factor multiplicied with the strength of the SW for computing the probability of preventing a goal by the sweeper

# can also be simualated
unitedSim(home, away, r = 100)
