Remember when stats on capture and defense points were available?

Pepperidge Farm remembers:

It still boggles my mind that WG somehow broke this API around (or right after) OBT, and never bothered to fix it -- in a game, where a sizeable portion of the user base is keenly interested in stats.

@Hapa_Fodder Could you please ask the devs why didn't this ever get fixed?

I think because some people are confused as to what the numbers mean.

That, and because very few players care.  (Though I'd like to know.)

Any DD player that even remotely cares about PR measuring the right thing would care.

Off topic here, but why do Russians keep putting )))) after their sentences? I've never gotten a straight answer.

I am an all for stats person but even so I couldnt care about capture points and defend points because neither of those are relevant to your performance or contribution.

For you that probably is true since you can single handedly demolish the enemy team.  Most other players contribute in more modest ways, like capping, and base defense.  Such is the life of us plebs.

They are certainly relevant to your rewards.  https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Base_Earnings#In-game_Actions

Oh, what a shame. And here I was thinking that taking three solo caps and almost all of the fourth (the game ticked to 1000 a few seconds before I could get it done) on a map with only three cap zones actually meant something.

I got an Isokaze game with all 4 caps on Ring. Prior to that, 2 Hosho games with a solo cap in the mix. A Langley game with 2 caps(even I was surprised by that one), and an extremely tense Smith game where I put my team 10 points ahead to win on time. So I get you, there should be more emphasis.
