    I think I'll get that last 30 eff from my T2 light. It will put down the average tank level (the lower the higher the eff) and it gets a shitload of spots in low tier battles because of its speed.
    Go for capping points.

    If I understand this right, 100 capping points have the same value as 43 kills (not counting the points you would get from dealing damage)

    I think that generally capping/defending points have unhealthily more weight than damage.

    I am trying to look up actual formula, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Edited:

    I am analyzing the formula a bit. There is actually has very significant influence on the stats.

    Edited:

    Okay, the formula is painfully simple.

    You get points for x of anything done averagely per game.

    Enemy destroyed

    350

    One point of damage

    1.5

    One spotted enemy

    200

    One defense point

    150

    One capture point

    150

    And from that they subtract "your average tank level" (not sure what that means) * 40. not as simple, but ONLY influences the score from damage and kills
    Just go to the stat calculator and input values which let you analyze it.

    Leave everything empty and put 1 into each of the specific stats, and you see the score each of them give you.


    I just now actually realized the "tank level stat" works a bit differently than I thought, but actually from what I see it means that it actually doesn't influence your score from caps and spotting at all, only from kills and your damage.

    Edited:

    So, generally the rule of the efficiency stats:

    Want to be have good stats?

    Be the cappy scumbag.

    Get into a tier 1 or tier 2 and cap as if there was no tomorrow.

    I need to get ~20000 capture points without letting my other stats drop a lot and I will be unicum.

    Actually, that's a bit flawed computation.

    IF over the next 200 matches I had either 100% cap OR 100%+ defense, I would be unicum solely from these points.

    Thing is that it's nigh impossible I could get 100% of either for whole 200 matches in a row, so that wouldn't do.

    But yeah, if you want to pimp your efficiency, just be that one faggot who caps whenever he gets the chance.



    Oh and defending also pays off, perhaps even more, because you can get over 100 points of it per match.

    Edited:

    Will having the IS get you anything in 7.3?
    Yeah.

    A feeling of jealousy for all the others who got something extra in the game.

    Tanks to have in 7.3:

    KV with KV-2 turret

    KV-3

    IS-4


    that's everything.

    Edited:

    I wish I could code in flash.


    With the knowledge I have right now, I could rather easily make interface which would, in real time, tell you how your efficiency rating rises with each your action, with every your shot and kill, and say like "+0.2 points" on hit of enemy tank, and give you summary after the match.

    My efficiency is only 777
    Partly because I care more about doing damage and helping the team than stealing kills and rush capping.

    Also partly because I used to let my little brother play this account to do some pointless grinds for me.

    I was just playing arctic region with KV-5. I was at the bottom of the south road, defending the hill. I had my ass backed out at an angle so I could hide r2d2 and fire on the T34 and Lowe coming up. T34 gets lucky and sets me on fire. Our IS-3 and I went back up the hill to kill and IS and vk. While Im climbing the hill:
    T34: lol the kv5 was backwards
    me: So you can kiss my ass
    T34: I did, I set you on fire
    me: I know. I liked it
    The IS and friends are disposed of
    T34 and Lowe are now climbing the hill behind us, Im just about dead. I turn around, smash off the speed governor, and double-tap R.
    me: WOAH BABY LIGHT MY FIRE
    I ram the T34 and we both die.

    Besides the Experimental and Fantasy tanks that Wargaming will have ingame once the Japanese line comes out, I do not see early tier Japanese tanks being any fun because throughout the war. The Japanese tanks that did see action during WW2 were of extremely low quality when compared to the tanks of the other nations and wouldn't stand a chance in a all-out tank-vs-tank battle.

    It'll be interesting to see wargaming try to make japanese tanks not suck total ass

    I mean their "penultimate tank destroyer" actually used during the war was a tracked truck with one and a half centimeters of armor and a 76mm antiaircraft gun bolted on top


    seriously

    come on
    Well knowing how Wargaming.net tends to function, they'll probably give some of the Japanese tanks access to modules they didn't have historically and use alot of experimental/paper/fantasy tanks like the O-I, Chi-Ri, and the Type 4 to balance it.

    They'll find a way to make the Japanese tanks not suck completely one way or another.

    About the only thing remotely competitive the Japanese had above Tier 5 was the O-I 100/120t and the Ho-Ri (125mm armored ferdi ripoff with a 105) though

    Well most Japanese tanks were pretty compact/small, so it'll be easy for them hide behind cover and to conceal themselves. Maybe the Japanese tanks will be the line that has to rely on stealth and ambush tactics to be successful? Problem is that most Japanese tanks that saw action were horribly under-gunned.

    Japanese tanks are something I would not want to see anytime soon in World of Tanks. Most of their tanks were pathetically low quality stuff, even worse than their Italian counterpart's.

    Heck, even something like a Stuart could easily destroy one. WG would have to go to great extents balancing out Japanese tanks and whatnot to make them playable, or possibly make most of them premium only or something.

    Well, went searching around and found out that the Japanese tier 9 medium will be the STA-1 (europe world of tanks forum), apparently hinted at by the developers.



    First of three prototypes of the type 61 tank. This prototype was completed in 1956

    God imagine having to grind with the Japanese tanks, defiantly if the MM is the same way it is now when they add them. I can probably predict that the Japanese will have horrible low-mid tier tanks and mediocre high-tier tanks, armor wise at least. Gun-wise, we'll have to wait and see what modules Wargaming adds to the Japanese tanks.
