Hi guys, I still don't have much free time on my hands to do any work, but I thought we could start discussing WN8.
For those of you who follow my WN thread on the off forums, the main proposals for WN8 are:
*Eliminate tier based penaltys to frags and spots
*Half the contribution of defense points to WN, and lower the cap from 2.2 to 1.4.
*Possible re-work of damage curve (I would retailor the curve to values for each tier using top100 damage for each tank available using XVM and in-game stats)
*Re-implement the low tier penalty due to it being easily evaded by playing equal amounts of high and low tier games. Replace it by a NORMALIZER term, intended to compensate for sealbashing in tiers 1-3, which is calculated based on the number of games played on the 3-4 most played tanks of tiers 1-3. The idea is to have a cutoff which allows "normal" players to play many different low tier tanks without being penalized, while penalizing low tier sealbashers, INDEPENDENTLY of their avg tier. The current penalty in WN7 can be evaded if you raise your avg tier above 4, no matter how many games you spent sealbashing in tier 1.
PS: I didnt want to make a mile-long post bringing all the stuff from the other thread, you can go check it to see details if you wish, but its full of stat-denying annoying little kids asking for a penalizer to players who play tier 10s .
You can look at pages 100 and onwards, but this post pretty much explains everything>
