So I went through all the names for the top 300 and the bottom 300 accounts by winrate in Warships to see what information I could glean from them. I started seeing patterns immediately. I then looked for those pattersn throughout the entire list.

Here is what I found:
Accounts that use all capital letters in their name: Top: 14 Bottom: 27

Accounts that use a full rank or abbreviated military rank in their name: Top: 3 Bottom: 19

Accounts that use a full year in their user name: Top 0 Bottom: 13

Accounts that use an aggressive term in their name (killer, sniper, mauler, etc) Top: 2 Bottom: 10

Accounts that use a ship designation or ship name in their account name: Top: 16 Bottom: 6

Accounts that use US or USA in their name as a national designation: Top: 2 Bottom: 8

Accounts that use the word war in their name: Top: 2 Bottom: 7

Accounts that have an Axis commander in them: Top: 1 Bottom: 5

Accounts that use Lexington_Museum in their user name: Top: 0 Bottom: 3

 

So in all of this, it is apparent that accounts:

with all capital letters are twice as likely to lose

with ranks, 6.33 times likely to lose

with aggressive terms, 5 times more likely to lose

with a ship or ship designation, 2.66 times more likely to win

With "US" or "USA" in their names, 4 times more likely to lose

with the word "war" in their name, 3.5 times more likely to lose

with an Axis commander, 5 times more likely to lose

 

So seeing as the player base pool is random and obviously everyone is good at what they do and its only MM that causes the losses, is it predisposed to be putting accounts with these details on winning and losing teams intentionally? If so, be very careful with what you name yourself in this game and obviously whatever you do, do not use a year in your name. I would recommend using a name like Fog_Cruiser_Chengan to get the most out of this anomaly.

Just curious and too lazy to look it up so I'll ask:

What is the average win rate of those 2 groups?

@Lexington_MuseumO7 how many of top 300 / bottom 300 used their real name as their username????

That involves more hacking and doxing than I am willing to risk my freedom for.
