Recommendation distribution

Alright, so that's the rating. But are the sets generally recommended? The data we've collected shows that the majority of Promotional sets are considered up to personal taste:

Indifference 47%




Total: 155 / 662

Not all sets in our database are marked as recommended or not. We currently have 507 sets in Promotional that are considered unknown. They are excluded from these calculations.

A set is considered recommended when the majority of reviews recommend it. If you're interested in knowing when a review is considered a recommendation, I keep that reasoning updated in Brick Insights FAQ. I've also written an article detailing the recommendation distribution of all reviews.
