Named storms have been near average, but stats such as Average TS Duration, ACE per TS, and ACE per TS Day are all in the bottom three going back to 1970.

Definitely a weak season, that's for sure. Only one minimal Category 5 equivalent and that was for just 6 hours (Noru). What's really notable about this season is how weak the storms have been east of the Philippines. Not a single typhoon has hit the Philippines this year. Feels like the WPAC's 2013, to a lesser extreme.

My biggest complaint on the year would have to be the handling of Typhoon Banyan by both JMA and JTWC. I think both agencies were for the most part too low with intensity from genesis to extratropical transition of the small typhoon, but particularly when Banyan rapidly intensified on August 12th. Instantaneous DTs were nearly that expected of a category 5 by 18Z. Constraints obviously come into play, but I think it's safe to assume that it ended up becoming a category 3 at the end of the intensification bout, and I'd even argue for a category 4 (although I am a little aggressive at times).

At the time of the image above, the JMA intensity estimate was 70 kt and the one from JTWC was at 80 kt.

What if the GFS gets its right with 98W? Hmmm.... Not to mention Tembin, now approaching typhoon status headed for the most unprecedented location: Southern Palawan

I'd say that the names (JMA names) used this season that have the most potential to get retired are:

Nanmadol
Hato
Doksuri
Lan
Damrey
Tembin
