So it seems I need to win 4 or 5 games in a row to get my wr up by 0,1%, but it goes down by 0,1% if I lose just one game? Is this a bug or its supposed to work this way?

There is no bug, that's a bit of rounding i believe. I could link a win rate calculator but i prefer not to. Play the game, try to do better and most important enjoy yourself. Whatever stat you're looking for, it'll come with practice and some patience.


Good luck!

It's not even rounding, it is how statistics works. It always takes more matches to get your win rate away from 50% than getting closer to it, and the further away you are from 50% the more matches you need to enlarge that distance.


Let's have a practical example.

Some random player, let's call him Urkbert, has ten battles with one tank and won six of those ten battles.

So currently he has a 60% win rate with that vehicle. Now he decides to do another battle with it.


If he wins that one as well, he then won seven out of eleven matches, which means 63,64% win rate, which is an increase of 3,64%


If he loses it, then he has six victories out of eleven matches, which translates into 54,55% win rate, which is a loss of 5,45%


I chose a low battle count for easier calculations and a more obvious difference but the mechanics stay the same at any battle count.
