I call [edited]. I have requested API access from WG for over almost two years so I am very interested in how you pulled this off.

 

PM me, I'll give you my email address and you can dropbox me your data set and/or methods scraping that data. 

 

For reference, vBAddict: http://www.vbaddict.net/statistics.php?tier=0&tanktype=0&nation=0&premium=0&modeid=0&team=0&battles=1000&groupby=0&fieldname=won_lost_ratio&server=

 

 

There is no API.  You have to crawl the web and parse the HTML.  

 

Yes, there's tons of information for the PC version (e.g., vbaddict, etc.).  But the console version (and stats) are quite different.

  1. Whether intentional or not, Russian bias is very real:
    1. 5 out of the top 10 tier 10 tanks are Russian (as measured by win rate, avg. damage, kills, etc.)
    2. 5 out of the top 10 tier 9 tanks are Russian.
    3. 3 out of the top 10 tier 8 tanks are Russian.
    4. 5 out of the top 10 tier 7 tanks are Russian.
    5. 4 out of the top 10 tier 6 tanks are Russian.

So, which tanks? Thanks!

If you really mean that, then tell us how exactly you did it so we can see for ourselves, all this ambiguity isn't helping you here.

...that's your opinion and you are welcome to it but to be honest you are wrong on a great many things, just to let you know bra 

www.wotinfo.net has all the information you will need to be a better tanker a.k.a. weak spots, map knowledge and more.

Here is proof of my claims to have requested the API in April of 2014: http://forum-console.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/30196-is-there-an-api-to-pull-stats-from-wot-db/

 

Man-up, PM me and I'll give you my email address. Dropbox me your data or it doesn't exist. My guess is that your data set is a couple of orders magnitude off. Here is my guess 1. Scraped a few thousand records at best or 2. You put together a spreadsheet and manually punched in the data of your friends and a few hundred others. Ergo, your data is not representative, from a statistical point of view, of reality, it is just veiled opinion.

 

Edited for clarity.

Either way, calling you out.

I don't think you are the only computer programmer here.  It seems to me that getting this information is not as easy as you make it sound.  Do you work for WG?

Yeah, that's equatable of saying I know how to hack a game because some guy gave me a script to do so.

 

Pretty much. I'm really having a hard time believing that this guy "sifted" through a million+ profiles/stat pages. Even with a computer that's quite the undertaking to say the least.....

I have found that if you spam auto lock with an inaccurate gun your just as likely to hit as with an accurate one. Odd how that works.

 

I'm sure you came to this conclusion using purely scientific methods and not simple anecdotes.

It's kinda funny that your first sentence mentions speculation and hearsay.

I also find it hard to believe that with all that very specific information at your disposal, you chose to provide some very non-specific and subjective conclusions.  For example, the IS-4 is better than the IS-7?  How?  Please provide the actual data that brought you to that conclusion.

Yeah. I'm leaning more towards this being all based off of opinion and not hard numbers......

That statement alone tells me that nothing in the op is to be trusted.

Add in the t110e5 is actually quite bad and the excelsior is pretty damn fun. Troll post is troll post.

I think I found some actual numbers and proof that this guy is simply trolling and doing nothing else. (Not even 400 battles...)

 

So OP, what real life experience do you have backing that up?
