This looks like what I'm looking for.

Am I right in assuming that the white numbers highlighted in different WN8 colors are the DMG values to reach that WN8?

In this case what are the actual WN8 values that these colors stand for? Firstly, which color scale is used? And secondly, a color is defined by a range of WN8 values. F.e. if green meant 1200-1400 WN8, which value between 1200 and 1400 is the one that belongs to the highlighted DMG value? Is it the lowest one to reach the color?

This isn't really what I was looking for. I already know this site, but I don't know what expected values are. Can you tell me?

Anyway, I've noticed that of course there is a formula that defines how WN8 is calculated. Actually that's kinda obvious, but I didn't think about it. So you can look up that formula and calculate WN8 values using the expected values. Still wondering whether there is a website that does that automatically though. I guess the one above does, but not for exact custom values. You could even automate that by yourself but you would have to access the online database. This wouldn't be a complicated thing for a website I think.

Can someone tell me what expected values are? (https://modxvm.com/en/wn8-expected-values/) I know the expected value to the average result of an experiment. It is based on a random variable that can have different result values of the experiment. Each of these result values has it's own probability, in total 100%.

In practice you can see the expected value as the result of a risk-benefit calculation. The benefit is the value of the random variable, it is multiplied by it's probability. That's done for all values of the random variable and added up.

Thinking about it, in practice probability is just empirical/experimental probability. In this case the calculation for the expected value of the random variable is equivalent to the calculation of the average value of that variable.

So is it right to say that expected value and average are basically the same?

Why then does the data not proof this. We've got expected values for DMG and WR here:https://modxvm.com/en/wn8-expected-values/ and we've got values titled average for DMG and WR here: https://wotlabs.net/eu/tankStats. Both statistics are updated daily. Still the values differ for the same tank. Why?

Also what does the x mean in front of all the value names, like xWN8, xWR, xWTR...?

Thanks guys, maybe someone can help me here, although it's become completely mathematical now.
