Yeah I am bored waiting for the update. So I am going to ramble.

 

Another stat thread, how amazing is that.

 

Can you imagine if the actual stats for winning was based solely on survival and winning ?

Think about it.

If you are destroyed in any match and the team wins it still counts as a defeat for you.

If you lose a match but survive it still counts as a loss.

 

Eventually most people would stop playing the game due to the lower stat rating for WINS.

 

WG knows that, regardless of what people claim, stats are still important even on a personnel level.

In order to keep people interested in playing a game one must device a stat system that will still

give a higher number above 50% that is easy to attain or at least not too difficult.

 

Therefore WG devised a stat system based on team win rather than individual wins.

They also added a survival rating for strange people like me.

 

Currently my Win rate sits at around 60% ( a little higher but it is an example )

My survival rate is at 48% yet some of those matches I survived were losses.

After much thought and guesstimating I would think 

that my win rate based on my idea of survival only wins would be around 35%.

 

That would be enough for me to give up playing this game. So glad WG has the stat system they do.

you guys keep emphasizing the team aspect of the game. So, the team wins, you win. I couldn't imaging getting 3, 4, or 5 kills and then getting a loss.

Could you imagine flying anything other than an OP German aircraft?

Um..ok. Where does that come from. German heavies account for a very tiny percentage of my overall play time lately. Look at warplanes today before you speak. 

 

 I've been mostly in my il-10m piggy bank, because its allowing me to buy all of the high tier planes i have researched.

Have you not realized that 3000 of your 6000 battles are in German aircraft?

 

Talk about living for it.

Is that why you make whine threads about your teammates when it happens to you?

of my last 1500 battles, only 2 of my top 10 aircraft are German. One being my trusty ole HG2. The other the 265.

:D

 

I got 4 or 5 aces this past week, and still lost the games, I figured that was normal with flying cannon fodder everywhere.

We will be discussing ( some arguing ) the significance or complete irrelevance of stats until they pull the plug on this. The current meta ( bot world ) have rendered them to useless numbers IMHO.

In fact, I found I won more often when I didn't get aces than when I did. 1 out of every 3 games you get an ace these days, and 1 out of every 3 aces you win. So the point of the story is don't get an ace your chances of winning nearly doubles.

Exactly, you get 3 or 4 assists and deal a lot damage clearing tails, that ends up being almost a better scenario for a win than an Ace these days.

Yep, the less kills you have and the more damage you got, means the more tails you cleared. Which everyone knows it only takes a quick trigger pull to clear a bot off a tail, then you move to the next tail. Eventually all the targets die, and if you weren't focusing on 5 of them until they were dead, you probably contributed more to the fight.
