There were 86 contestants in PSL5 (less Mr. Sheep). 76 of them are in PSL6. That is a 88.4% re-participation rate! PSL1 had a re-participation rate of 78.9%, PSL2 was 78.4%, PSL3 was 78.4%. All three are amazingly similar, but the re-participation rate from PSL4 to PSL5 and from PSL5 to PSL6 is substantially better! Good job guys!
We have 5 newcomers (TrueFlNative, O'Brien, Stiffler, Ursineus and Skiddos).
Naturally one would wonder if the re-participation rate for PSL6 was correlated to where they finished in PSL5. There is a small correlation, but not much of one. Shown below is the first group of 10 in the final PSL5 rankings and how many of them (10) are participating in PSL6, etc. Re-participation rates by groups of 10 are based on how each group finished in the previous PSL contest.
