I've already asked this question in the Newcomers' Forum but it didn't lead to any results. So I'll try again here and hope that some person actually knows about the values that WN8 is based on. XVM is used by many thousands of people, so there has to be someone knowing, right?

This is going to be very detailed below but the actual question is just one line, that's all.


WN8 expected values can be found here: https://modxvm.com/en/wn8-expected-values/


- WN8 is based on the expected tank values. They are needed to calculate WN8 together with players' individual statistics.


My question: How do the expected values come about? How are these values collected? How are the expected values calculated from other values (as you can't find them in their pure form in the game)?


- I know what an expected values is in mathematics (stochastics) but it seems to me that this doesn't fit here.


- In regards of World of Tanks it might be the obvious solution that the values are simply average values. This is what I first thought about and what I was given as an answer on my previous topic. But this is not true as I'm going to proof below (premised the information on my source websites is correct).



(My research in detail: )

For my research I've used this website as another source of information: https://wotlabs.net


Here you can find the expected values as well: https://wotlabs.net/eu/wnTable

They seem to be the same as on modxvm.com.

In detail:

Now wotlabs.com offers another table providing the average tank statistics: https://wotlabs.net/eu/tankStats

The values from this table are different from the expected values found in the other tables above.

In detail:

This confirms that expected values are not simply average values. Still premised that my source of information isn't wrong and titles the values they give correctly. But I think this result is likely to be true because

1. why would there be two different tables for the same thing if expected values were just the same as average values?

2. why would there be two different names for the same thing if expected values were just the same as average values?



So I hope someone can help me and explain to me what expected values truly are?

Here is where i found the info (links); https://forum.wotlab...nefficiencynet/


I hope this is on use if not my apologies in advance


Best regards



Ps! i an not a number cruncher so i can't help you explain the exact mathematics.


Edit; typo.
