Howdy Folks! I am back once again after a few weeks with the next set of popularity statistics for the EU Server. Similar to my NA Popularity post yesterday, this is for the complete popularity at tier 10 for the EU server.
Because I posted the NA server yesterday and the EU server today, not only can I start to give observations about differences between the servers, but you as well, can. I’ll leave my observations out of this post this time, but in future iterations expect some small side-comments for each tank type.
As a preview of the sort of observations I will be able to give:
The NA server had an On-Track to the German SPG – the GWE 100 – and the EU server did not. Due to this, the NA server has had a bump in popularity for the GWE 100. I expect this small popularity bump to mostly disappear, if not completely vanish within 1-2 months as people no longer are getting rewarded for playing the tree, and they will move on to the next On-Track. Unfortunately, I am not sure off the top of my head what the EU Top of the Tree was, but for you EU folks, I am sure you can recognize a small popularity boost for the Tank(s) that were Top of the Tree.
Also, while the Grille 15 is straight up the most popular Tier X TD on both servers, it has a runaway lead on the EU server where it leads by several percentage points in all 3 popularity charts, whereas on the NA server, its lead is not nearly as wide.
Just in case you folks from the EU were in bed last night when I posted the NA variation of this, I will explain below what each type of popularity means.
UP This is Unique Plays. This is a simply how many unique accounts played this tank. This does not count matches played by each player. You could play 1 match or 1000 matches in a tank, and it only counts as 1 unique play.
AMP This is Average Matches Played. This is a per person, per tank ratio. This is shown because while some tanks are not played by as many people, they are played for more matches than the ones played by more people.
CAP This is Combined Average Popularity. This takes an average of UP and AMP and becomes on overall popularity for the time period. This will be the most likely percentage chance for you to have been in a match with this vehicle in a match.
For each chart, the numbers up the Y axis are in percentage points. I know that they are not sorted in descending order, but honestly, I sort of like that, as you can compare visually patch-to-patch popularity of each tank just by glancing at each chart.
As a small teaser, beneath each chart table of links to the charts, I will give the #1 in each category.
