DD Stat quirk?

Just wondering how ALL the tier 2, 3 and 4 DDs can have a better than 50% win rate? (NA, 2 week stats). Only way I can think of is the matches where there is an uneven split in DDs. Does having an extra DD on a team make that big a difference?

Player A fights Player B  == Player A wins  (overall average = 50% win rate)

Player C fights Player B == Player C wins  (overall average = 66.66% win rate)

Win rates:  A=100%, B= 0%, C= 100%

What this means is that a certain percentage gets it..  A small percentage doesn't.

On the other hand, if the average win rate < 50%..  then less people are good with it.

Kind of looks that way doesn't it?

Low-tier DDs face no radar and rarely face hydro, have high stealth, and opposing BBs (and some cruisers) have terribad accuracy at that tier. For a new player, the different classes are reasonably balanced, but its very easy for seal clubbers to use low-tier DDs to run rampant over opposing teams. 

Look at Clemson, for example. New players suck in her as bad as they do anything else, but her combination of attributes give her a high skill ceiling. I average almost as high damage in Clemson as I do in Z-52 six tiers lower, because there are plenty of counters to DDs in tier 10 and becayse the level of competition is higher. In Clemson, the only way I have a bad game is if I run into a better seal clubber or get supremely unlucky. I'm the same way in Vampire, Kamikaze, V-170...there aren't any cruisers or BBs in low-tier that are comparable in terms of a seal clubber's ability to sealclub as dominantly (maybe Orion or Konig Albert, but that's it...I don't count Nikolai as she's not been available in forever.) 

So a lot of the disparity there is seal clubbing. I'd bet if you took the top 20% of players in each given boat off of the statistics for that boat, DDs would be much closer to cruisers and BBs in terms of win rate at those tiers.

I think you are looking at this wrong.  Wouldn't it be Player A=1 win, Player B=2 losses, Player C=1 win, so in this scenario you would end up with 2 wins and 2 losses, for a 50% win rate, assuming they were all using the same DD?

No.  It's an average of win rates over the span of players.

This makes it impossible to base specific conclusions upon, since it's a 'muddy' number.

Cruisers suck at those tiers and battleship dispersion is so bad.

Only counter to those destroyers is other destroyers.

BTW, tier 2 and 3 IJN are way to OP.

Dertzki at tier 3 is way to much fun....

Try them then you'l understand why the stats are like they are.

Most people only have like... 10 games played in a T3 DD before they research the next tier. Low tier premiums and seal clubbers being the usual exceptions.

 

That means all you have to do is win 6 games.

 

The low tiers have too low of a games played "pool" to make that deduction from.
