xT and xG values
Data · 11 Jun 2022, 00:19 · 2

I see an xT value is included in the test dataset but not the train dataset. Is there a reason for this? I'm sure xT would be a valuable metric to use in our models. Is it not included in the training dataset because it would make the project too easy?

Furthermore, in the webinar Lee mentioned xG would be included in the dataset, but that is not the case. Is the dataset incorrect or did he misspeak?

Are you sure?

I havent seen any xT value in the testing dataset so far.

Oh!, you meant the test_game_statistics

You might be right ,its exemption from the train_game_statistics seems tricky.
