I was super pumped to see this survey pop up in game today. Not only was it on game related things, it was on stats, which I find super interesting. I like playing with numbers and such and there are definitely some deficiencies in stat reporting for WoWs, so it was nice to be able to give them some feedback.

Think it will have any meaningful result...

Felt a lot like a poll designed to make us "Feel" like they care...

I understand not showing everyone's damage in clan battles, but I think it would be useful.  I added that comment. I'd like to see average damage for clan battles.

Recommending a Battle Contribution stat that is weighted by value of damage (IE: percentage of HP, not total numbers, with a lower value given to damage which got repaired) and caps/cap defense, probably some other variables can feed into it. I think this would be a good way to gauge your individual contribution to the team, and easier to gauge where you can improve than just raw win rate which is too generic and too easily influenced by the rest of the team.

 

I guess it'd be a WoWS version of personal rating, but making it more difficult to smurf it like people do for winrate now.

On the last page you could select that you are not happy with the stats given on the official page, and then write a wall of text on why.

It's called xp. The problem with xp is that gives base xp from regular and premium accounts as the same, making it useless as a stat.

Yeah, this is the complaint that I wanted to write as well.

i put the same suggestion in for damage stat and base cap/defense.  Also,  and most important in my opinion, I would like to see a stats for your average finishing position on the team.  Average finish would tell me a lot more about my performance and others than any of the other stats as they can be manipulated and some of them are influenced by ship type/tier.  200k damage in a Hindy and let's say 200k damage in a Maas are not really the same thing imo.

I actually like that they don't do this...come clannies get a bit prideful about how great they are...now its much more a team win.

XP is inadequate and what affects it is not clearly defined. And is manipulated by Premium as you accurately point out.

What we need is something clearly defined.

Huh. It closed the survey right after I answered "No" to the "Do you check other players stats" question. Three questions and it was done. Gotta admit, I don't think much of surveys that tailor the questions you get to the responses they give, smacks too much of "Oh, this player probably has an opinion we won't like because they didn't give the responses we wanted".

Actually, it's more along the lines of "oh, this player doesn't engage in the behavior we're asking questions about, therefore this survey is a waste of his time and ours."

so if they remove that limitation and everyones base xp is reported as shown on the team list, then its exactly what you want.

I hope this is WG working on making stats more important. 

Ugh not me.  Too many players obsessed with stats over actually playing the game as it is.

As it is, I have to keep my stats hidden so a I don’t get focus fired at the start of the game by people running Match maker Monitor.

Not exactly. XP calculations are opaque. I want something transparent.
