Many players are interested in their own statistics or their friends' success rates. Here we have some interesting facts from the statistics of the entire server.

These tell us nothing, without something to compare them with, either the previous months or year to start with.

 

Just from the very limited data set, 2 things to note (there are more, but these standout),

 

1 -It's worrying that the highest played aircraft is a tier 1 (found what a Ar 65 was from the Facebook post, I don't think I have played one since 1.9) really would have thought it would have been either a tier 2, or one of the many mid-tier Spitfires 

 

2- Winged Legend, on a normal day, this is a pretty hard achievement to gain, simply because battles are too short, with the bomber escort mode, if you don't get one every 2-3 battles, your doing something really wrong, so if you compared the Feb stats, with  March, think that will go up massively.

3k winged legends is an incredibly low number considering the fact that any decent player gets one literally every second game.

 

I'd be surprised if there was more than 500 players concurrently logged in. Fact that special event goals have not been completed lately should tell you something.

 

So it's just a badly written PR trying to sell supposedly big numbers, but fails even at that.

I find it sad that the ar65 is the most played plane.... The seal clubbing is strong with this server....

Sad but true. WG should separate experienced players from the newbies on tiers 1-3 in order to give them the chance to have fun and remain active.

WG should set the dailies in the following catagories;

 

Low - Tier V - VI

Mid  - Tier VII - VIII

High - Tier IX - X

 

And people should know better than sticking in tier I...

 

But yeah, a lot of shite that is common sense, seems out of grasp here...

I suspect the Ar 65 is most played is only due to the fact it's kind of suggested starter plane. If you mean the strong sealclubbing lobby, it's the I-5, not Ar. Were the I-5 stats higher, I'd point towards those low-level statpadders. In this case however I would rather think it's the regular thing, people get that particular plane, after a couple battles move higher and branch out. Of course some will dissapear, but hey, trying to make this game appealing to literally everyone will only make things worse. Arcadish semi-flying game with combo bonuses and paid customization options anyone? I'm pretty sure this would attract a lot of, shall I say, very young people. I agree on one thing though, a monthly report would be more substantial, so we could all have some comparison. And expecting WG to release detailed data as to the population etc - it's not how market works. In as much as being a free-to-play game, this one is certainly not a charity project :)

When creating your infographic, you should use 'commas' and not 'full stops/periods' to denote thousands.

'Full stops' are used in punctuation in written language, but when used as a 'period' in relation to numbers turns those numbers to show fractions. I'm sure you want to show that there were 208,639 battles in February and not just 208 battles.:P

In a way I agree, but with the amount of tier 2 premiums, which are available (which we have often paid real money for), thinking that just eliminating tier 1 from the daily missions would do the same sort of job.

 

Also eliminating the Specialist Config from tier 1, and maybe 2 & 3 as well  (and maybe give all planes in 2&3 a complete config 'specialist config only?)  Once you get to tier 4, you should be able to play at a reasonable level, so not to get clubbed all the time.

 

Also, putting tier 8 in the mid-tier, rather than high tier, would annoy almost everyone who has bought them, as if you haven't got to tier 8 through the tech tree, premiums are the only way to complete daily missions till you have done the grinds

Although you are right referring to english language (and many others) this is not standard.

Have in mind that in a lot of countries (like mine) the use of commas and periods in maths is exactly the opposite (as seen written in this info graphic) :)

I know some countries do but most European countries use the comma. A period is used to denote a fraction in numbers or cent in money, 

ie:-  €100,000.33 means one hundred thousand euros and thirty-three cents, or if not money and just numbers one hundred thousand and a third of one.

Does that mean that you use the comma where the dot/period is used in my example above.

Haha. You barbarians make me laugh. The only correct manner is comma for fractions, non breakable space for multiples of 1k. (More seriously, I find it hilarious how we're fighting about this.)

Yep, this is a kind of information which is better not known. The doom is closer than expected.

If you want to sealclub you should not use the Ar-65. There are better planes for that. I would also not specialize.

Just to counter the remark about Ar-65 being the top plane...

Most European? I can only speak for germany and here it is like dreambill described it.

Here € 100,000.33 (and the point on this position does not make sense for germans) means 100,-€.

A dot is used for easier reading when it comes to large numbers like 1000000 - write it like 1.000.000

Maybe a comma in other countries - but thats maybe something we should bring to the European court of Justice to have a unified standard all over Europe

I expect their answer in about 15 to 20 years, right after they decided about the change of summer and wintertime :D

In the Netherlands we do ... separate thousands by dot and decimals by comma in amounts. So € 299.888, 23 ... 

Funny that other European countries have different notation, but Europe is more concerned with a standard diameter of pizzas and other nonsense it seems.
