Important update of WN8

Recommended Posts

You probably already noticed a significant change in your WN8 rating. In this article we will explain the reasons for these changes, as well as improvements in the rating.

WN8 is not only a static formula, but also a set of expected values that are based on the overall server statistics of all active players. So even if you do not play, your rating may change slightly over time due to changes in the overall server statistics and recalculation of expected values.

However, for a long time (in the last half a year) the expected values for WN8 have not been updated. We wrote more about this problem earlier. Since the developers of the WN8 formula stopped the correct recalculation of the expected values, we decided to fix the problem on our own, and today we are ready to present you with an experimental solution.

We have fully automated the calculation of the expected values for WN8, retaining the original methodology of the authors of the rating.
 

Also are several differences that significantly affect the quality of the calculation:

  1. In past the recalculation of the tables was made rather rarely (once a few months), which led to sharp gaps in the rating after recalculation. Of course, it was an unpleasant and weird situation for ordinary players. We will recalculate the expected values daily, which solves both the problem of sharp changes in the rating and problem with obsolete data.
  2. We use a much larger player statistics database than the one was used in calculations by the authors of WN8, so we can make more accurate and reliable calculations.
  3. Unfortunately in past the authors of the expected values tables allowed themselves some liberties and pranks with the expected values such as manual manipulations in order to troll audience. We consider this unacceptable and since the calculation of tables now is under our full control we can be sure that there are no manual manipulations. Our priority is correct data.

 

The current table of expected values is now available on this page.

If you still see old WN8, just wait. Updating stats of all players can take some time.

For third-party developers:

If you want to use the current tables of expected WN8 values by XVM in your project, you can get them at the following URLs:

JSON: https://static.modxvm.com/wn8-data-exp/json/wn8exp.json
CSV:  https://static.modxvm.com/wn8-data-exp/csv/wn8exp.csv

Pay attention to the mandatory use of the secure https protocol in your requests.

  1. It's available from the time of announcement and it does not matter which version of XVM you're using, as this is server-side change. 
  2. It takes in account all stats of all active players, does not matter in which period.

How can we check the new stats, do you have recommendation for a website that uses new values? Is it shown ingame in the "service record" tab?

We're currently working on large update for our website and hope this feature as well as other planned features in one place will be available soon.

Yes if your stats was updated today after 10:16 UTC. If it was updated earlier, you need to wait some time before new rating will be shown in your service record.

I'm sorry, but what is your website? Are you talking about the modxvm.com? And if I understood you correctly, you are planning to make it like wotlabs/kttc.ru and similar sites? If that is the case, best of luck! :)

@H4NI not "like those" as we're doing all from scratch and with our view on this, but yes, it will provide all functionality of such kind of websites and even more.

And yes, i'm talking about modxvm.com

Interesting, do you have any ETA on that expanded website feature? I would love to have access to something that would calculate my recent in the manner that wotlabs does, but using xvm stats and colors.

good job, now 3rd party websites should take this into use, and also mods makers, so that we dont  have million different values. Finally there is hope we could get standardized values.

@Mr 13 Thank you for the effort you are putting in this. Quick question, are you going to continue with the wn8 formula or do you plan to implement the wn9 at some point?

@saintseiya

values on the xvm website are outdated.

 

Colors.xc

    "wn8": [
      { "value": 397,  "color": ${"def.colorRating.very_bad" } }, //    0 - 397  - very bad  (20% of players)
      { "value": 914,  "color": ${"def.colorRating.bad"      } }, //  398 - 914  - bad       (better than 20% of players)
      { "value": 1489, "color": ${"def.colorRating.normal"   } }, //  915 - 1489 - normal    (better than 60% of players)
      { "value": 2231, "color": ${"def.colorRating.good"     } }, // 1490 - 2231 - good      (better than 90% of players)
      { "value": 2979, "color": ${"def.colorRating.very_good"} }, // 2232 - 2979 - very good (better than 99% of players)
      { "value": 9999, "color": ${"def.colorRating.unique"   } }  // 2980 - *    - unique    (better than 99.9% of players)
    ],

Use XVM scale values for colors, they are always correct. The best choice is to use {{r}} for values and {{xr}} for colors.

We don't have ETA yet, but this is one of our high-priority tasks and we'll put all our effort to this in near future.

  1. We all must say thanks to @sirmax, primarily. He did most part of work on this.
  2. We'll consider WN9 but it's not a priority at this time.

This color scale is outdated, it was relevant at time of publication.
Currently color scales are automatically updated every day. We'll make a page where you can check current scales soon.

Great update guys! I`m happy you made this script.

I have one question: If someone meets the expected values what WN8 will he have? I mean a player with average stats will have the average 1200WN8 for example?
