Battleship census and tier for tier ranking

Doing a battleship census. Seeing that lines entered at different times, it's pretty hard to count how popular ships are, but if you look at the percent of total battleships played we can compare how much activity one let's say UK or even French battleship has eaten up compared to it's sisters who came out the same time. What share of the population is playing a certain nation in each tier and what tiers are certain nations more popular than others, based on the average we can compare ships by popularity and how they do tier for tier. The French stats will mean the least but as time goes on we'll be able to perfect that. Going to update these every few months or so. Should I cont premiums entirely, just for sister ships or not at all because it will throw it off? Want to include premiums but they are harder to compare this way because they all come out at different times whereas the lines all were released at the same time. Looking for feedback.  These rankings show more how many people play a ship rather than necessarily how good it is but over time won't quality decide this? Still democracy's don't always get things right and if you like a ship this is rating nothing but how much they are used in PVP versus their peers against their various opposition. Trees not being equal is what I 

So here's the breakdown in percentage how many games have been played by each tech tree line followed by the rankings of how ships do against their tiers versus ships released at the same time. The full rankings will be at the bottom it is tier for tier, one ship being higher means they are played more than another ship on average not that they are better, clearly lower tier ships aren't better than higher tier ships. 

Appreciate any feedback! For disclosure I used the PVP stats with the filter set to 10 or more matches. If there's better numbers to use let me know!

Yeah I messed up a math thing that made this really complicated. Simply going to have to settle for the tier comparisons for now, will put the rankings down later.

Games played is not really a meaningful metric when some battleships have been in this game for three years and some for one week.

That was what I was trying to address, for example the UK ships were released and I'm comparing how many of the total games they were at a tier. Even if the percentage is small what matters is how much compared to the average percentage of UK games.

Since we are on the NA server here, USN ships will get prefered treatment from the playerbase. For obvious reasons.

Hey

I would have to agree with Lert.  Your not really comparing apples to apples; and coming up with a useful conclusion.
