Thread: Difference between wn8 quicksummary and wn8 tank.

  1. #1

    Difference between wn8 quicksummary and wn8 tank.

    Hi
    Yesterday i played 3 games in my sherman firefly.

    Quick summary report:
    WN8 566
    WN8 544
    WN8 4027

    AVG WN8 1712

    I i look at wn8 under tank and pick the Sherman firefly the same 3 battles gives a WN on 1380.

    Why so big a difference on the same formula for WN8?

    Greeting Morten

    Hi,

    it's not the same formula. Quick Summary is doing a simple average on all battles, while the Tank WN8 is calculated for all battles, including a different winRate. That makes a huge difference.

    Hi thanks for the reply
    Not sure i understand. How can a win rate be different? 3 loses is 3 loses or?
    Quick summary gives you a single wn8 for each game i not talking about all the battles.

    The winRate used in the formula is different for single battles (always the expected winRate) vs. a collection of battles (average winRate). Please keep in mind, WN8 was not made for single battles, therefore it has to be used with care. The WN8 Team accepted the expected winRate for single Battles, therefore I'm showing it.
