The M7, I've been told you don't even need 1.000 average damage per game to get 5000+ WN8.

Type 64 is ungodly at farming wn8.

 

But as many have said that won't get you on a good clan. And as you rise in the colours on xvm.... you will learn the meaning of arty focus fire....

 

I find the marks of excelence to be a much better metric to acess skill.

Since my wn8 is on a slow but steady decline -

it was stable at 1800 for quite long time

I could actually use some hints :)

 

Win more.

Wn8 is a terrible metric anyway.

It's strange for me how LTs are supposed to get a lot of WN8 when assist damage isn't considered.

 

Simply because they aren't spotting

Pad stats with unpopular tanks.

Don't pad stats with "the best tanks" (because everyone will be driving those and get WNRatings accordingly)

Why would one want to join a strong clan is beyond me, but anyway. You want bad tanks that would suit you personally.

With the normalization of expected values across tank classes the old "do well in crappy tanks" hardly apply so if you want to pad you are looking for tanks that can easily get the results. Just to bring you an example:

For a T8 medium you need 1162 damage to get green WN8 value, for the Lorraine 40t (it used to be around 1500 before) that is one clip worth of damage while that on the T-34-3 is already much more difficult to pull off.

Tanks that are really good in their tier print WN8 right now.

Short answer: NO.

 

Long Answer, WN8 is a stastistic based in the performance for each tank... each tank have a base WN8 level... 

for instance, you can do an average 600 dmg per game with a amx 12t per example, and archieve 2400 average WN8 in that tank...

and if you do the same average damage on a VK 36.01 H your WN8 will be much inferior...

 

WN8 simply compares your performance in each tank with all the other population on wold of tanks... 

 

So if you want to "statpad" or increase your WN8 by chosing specific tanks, usualy tier V tanks are more easier to get great WN8 scores.... because their are very fragile

even the heavies, so noobs will likely to make many mistkaes and underperfrom... thats why so many people play the T67,,,, its such a fragile tank and so powerfull in good hands, give it to a noob, and it wont last long, give it to a good player and it will unbalance tier 7 battles... 

 

In short again, to get good WN8 you must play better your tank than majority of other players do, simple as that!

ehmm. wasn't the 'performance in each tank' removed from win8? IIRC it currently uses the same metric for a class per tier.

Correct, you can check it here while Vbaddict is still functioning (closing in september) http://www.wnefficiency.net/wnexpected/

All of them are normalized now for tank classes/tier.

Glad I read this post as it indicates why my perceived average play in my newly acquired RHM netted my a 3.4k wn8 session recently. Sitting in a bush hitting 3 shots and making at least 2k damage per game and more in a good game wasn't particularly difficult and I was quite shocked when I saw the wn8 I was getting from it. I assume that's because all tanks are now 'equal' in the eyes of WN8? If that's so it's a near useless stat now imo.

If you sort your tanks by WN8, the IS-6 would be the obvious answer for you. The only other option to consider is the XM551 Sheridan, which is not really a scout tank and your other scouts don't suggest you have mastered the skill of scouting just yet. Since the tier 10 scouts got introduced, I also found it a bit harder to perform well as gun performance has been gimped on quite a few scouts. I believe they may receive some love at next patch. However, they do take some learning, and maybe the Type 64 is the best to learn it If you go down the scout path, chances are your stats will tank until you master them.

Luchs. Play 10k battles in that with the average WN8 of 4000, then apply for a clan. Any clan that accepts you deserves you.

Their expected damage, in other words a large portion of the stuff WN8 is based on, is quite a bit lower compared to other tank classes, so if you for example do 600 damage in most tier 5 HT's you get "green" results, if you do the same in an tier 5 LT you get "purple" results.

Geezus, didn't know about it. Looks like an utterly stupid thing to do - why not simply fall back to WN7 instead (which, as I understand, worked basically like this)?

 

Well, in that case, of course the stronker the tenk the better for peen8.
