  • WN7 + new Efficiency by wot-news

    Just few seconds ago the new efficiency calculation were implemented into the most important parts of the website.


    The new efficiency calculations are active for:
    • Tank efficiency for your tanks. This will be updated only if tank was played, this will not be done for past tanks!
    • Battlesummary, available immediately
    • Battlelog, available immediately
    • Battlereport, available immediately



    Keep in mind the existing charts will be continued with the new calculation, this can lead to a drop in the charts.

    Still needs to be reworked, this is scheduled for next Monday:

    • Battlehistory
    • Statistics


    Regarding PA Efficiency (by vBAddict) which is based on the Efficiency by wot-news... The changes for the wot-news implementation were needed because of the flawed capture points formula which were already fixed by me.
    Additionally, I extended it with the assisted damage (spotted damage...) and changed it to have just the half of the assisted damage taken into calculation.

    And to be honest, I don't really like the new efficiency calculation, will prefer WNx in the future.

      WN7 replaced now the Efficiency on the Charts/Tanklist.
      Missing WN7 calculations will be done as soon as you drive the tank. I cannot calculate WN7 for all 2,6 Mio Tanks at once.

      Could you give us the option to either (1) manually update our profiles; or (2) choose which rating system to show on our profiles?

      I don't think players really want to have to buy back every single tank they've ever played prior to this update just to get their vehicle stats back. :/

      Also, the WNx rating seems to get changed every few weeks. Recalculation could be a pain...

      What does WN7 rate in their efficiency calculations? Some of my tanks shot up 200+ efficiency while others dropped by about the same. Also, these new efficiencies don't seem to be applied to my efficiency rating when viewing a specific tank with all other players. Is this still using the WN4 rating?

      Just tell me and I can do a recount, as I did now for your account

      Awesome!

      Though I still hope in the future we can do this automatically--perhaps by logging in via OpenID--so you have more time to keep pushing out cool new code.

      Edit: is the per-vehicle tank rating calculated based on all previous battles or just recent ones? ...cause my WN7 rating on a few tanks is a lot better than I was expecting.

      Not a good idea, I see some people hammering the "recount" button every few minutes bringing the server down

      Apologies for the pseudocode:
      PHP Code:
      if($loggedIn == true && $lastAcctRefreshTime 604800) { //1 week in seconds
              
      displayRefreshButton();

      It's just a thought. I suppose you will be around as long as the site exists and support has been phenomenal. I'm not complaining at all. Keep up the good work.

      This has been disabled for all profiles to rework it.

      Do you mean that WN7 has been disabeled? As I only see Efficiency by vBAddict
