Does anyone have historic recent active player data?

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to get some past data for the active player stats as per the front page of http://wotlabs.net/eu but I can't see any way to see past stats through the site.  I have been trying to use the internet archive to get past values, which has been moderately successful (https://web.archive.org/web/*/wotlabs.net/eu) but there is... not much data there for this year, whereas it was previously fetching data monthly.

This is what I have so far:

25/08/2015 52.68 54.36
17/07/2015 52.67 54.37

 

Does anyone have any additional values to add, or a way to get past data?  There is a big hole for this year, and I wouldn't mind having a higher resolution of data if possible.

Because while it does expose lots of very useful stats, it doesn't show the stats I want?

No. This is server avg of the active players. In a closed system(100% player retention) the server avg WR would be always 49% (due to draws). There are some possible explanation what this actually means but I am too lazy to type it on my phone.

No, as Tadoo87 says, it's not players getting worse, that's far too big a change to be players with many thousands of battles.

Instead, it is more an indication of the changing player base.

Graph:

The first big dip co-incides with the "100 years of the tank" celebration.

The big drop following this is post 9.18 (and the reason I want to find more data is to refine the graph around that point)

The first drop is indicative of a large number of players picking up the game for a short period, either unpracticed players or those who are playing for the first time.  There is a large spike in the playerbase at this time that confirms this.

The second drop however is not due to an influx of poor players - though player numbers do go up in the winter.  Instead, it indicates that the relatively small amount of good players are playing less - or at least, not enough to count as active players.

So yes, the playerbase is getting worse, but it's not that individuall players are getting worse, instead we are losing good players. :(

 

Apologies by the way of taking so long to reply.  The site decided that my login details were not correct (despite using a password manager), and would not send me a password reset email...   Now fixed
