Base Link is the basis for all modern X-stats

Base Link (often shortened to just BL) is the solid foundation on which all X-stats values are based. What every value on the All-Time X-stats Listing is saying is "this is the percentage of the vote that this character would manage in a direct matchup against Base Link."

Comparision Between Years[]

The idea behind BL is that Link remained constant between 2002 and 2003, then gained in 2004, 2005, and 2006. Link's exact strengths on BL are

50% -> 50% -> 53.38% -> 54.56% -> 56.33%

The numbers behind each of these adjustments were calculated by creativename using a method known as Least Squared Differences. You may need to be high on LSD to understand exactly how this method works, but it does.

Link-Beaters[]

Aside from Link himself as mentioned above, the following characters/games/series have earned the distinction of "Link-beaters," having finished above 50% on BL.
