Polish tanks wn8

20 posts in this topic

Due to the inflation of WN8-values in the recent years we decided to exclude polish tanks from the rating thus droping the global average wn8-rating back to what was considered "average" 3 years ago.

This decision will most likely affect all newly introduced tank lines/premium tanks introduced after/including the polish tank line up until the point where the average WN8-level drops down to a more managable level.

This way we will be able to make wn8 great again.

So playing Polish tanks drops your wn8?   I don't understand how that makes anything great again.  Also, the Italian line is included.  

You see the problem is that due to powercreep WN8 has become an inaccurate tool to measure ones skill in the game since it is nowadays a lot easier to achieve a high average WN8-level which doesn't actually reflect the true skill of the player.

Whereas 4 years ago 1500 wn8 would have been considered above average it would today be considered bad/below average by most high-end players.

To remedy this and keep the rating viable as a way for top-clans to quickly measure the skill level of new recruits it was decided that new tanks/tank lines, including the Polish and Italian line, would be completly excluded from the WN8-rating altogether up until the point where there average global WN8-rating of all players would drop back down to the average rating of 4 years ago.

What this effectivly means is that these tanks are counted as "0-WN8"- tanks until that point so playing them would lower the WN8-rating across all players as they are played.

I hope I could clear up any confusions!

Of course, I just don't like seeing it go down.  I am grinding a couple of tanks now that I am not good at.  The only tank that I am grinding and doing well in is the Polish tank. 

It looks like the Italian line is included.   As far as power creep, it is all relative so I am not sure why it would matter.

You can always play other tank lines to keep up your WN8-level.

In any case should you continue to play polish tanks our comimitee would like to offer you their thanks in assisting the good cause of droping the average WN8-level back down to a more reasonable level.

Certainly a backwards way to go about things and not the response I expected.  I guess I will un-bookmark your site and check stats on a more accurate site that reflects all tanks in the game.  

Thanks!

WN8 is XVM's job now, we offloaded our labour to some gulag in siberia where the intellectuals are forced to calculate WN8 all day, but WiFi is slow there, it takes time man.

The fact that fabunil was able to ride that for more than a single post deserves some kind of award.
