Data comes from player profiles via unofficial WoT API (same used by XVM, mobile app WoT Assistant and probably some other sites tracking players and clans progress). Due to that this data is unofficial and will never be confirmed and probably also never commented by WarGaming.

Statistics are from timeframe of 4 days at the end of February (game version 0.8.3) and cover only EU server. I have not enough courage to do same thing for RU and NA servers, maybe some other day (NA server is more likely to be done than RU due to huge amount of data and time required to gather and process data).

At the current snapshot there are 3 862 230 accounts on European server with at least one game played. According to Snib’s last snapshot we are facing huge increase of 1 713 289 new “semi-active” players since 0.7.4 game version from June/July 2012.

## Game achievements

### Ten most rare awards

If you have ever achieved one of those, you might consider yourself lucky.

Tamada Yoshio’s Medal | 530 | 4 | |

## Tank statistics

### Ten most rare tanks ever seen

Tank | Amount of games | |
---|---|---|

PzKpfw IV Hydraulic | 1 | |

SU-85I | 1 | |

MTLS-1G14 | 2 | |

Observer | 2 | |

BT-SV | 50 | |

KV-220 | 392 | |

KV-220 Beta-Test | 4 760 | |

PzKpfw V-IV Alpha | 14 434 | |

113 | 18 552 | |

121 | 22 450 | |

PzKpfw II Ausf. J | 56 068 |

If you were paying attention you will see there’s list of 11, not 10 tanks. I couldn’t resist not putting PzIIAJ here. Also, one tank is not widely known – Observer. Server says it’s tier 1 USSR light tank, my gut feeling says it’s tank for observing matches like tournaments.

Also, most of the tanks were not available to normal players.

### Ten most common tanks

Tank | Amount of games | Percentage of total games | |
---|---|---|---|

KV-1 | 119 931 132 | 3.245% | |

PzKpfw IV | 93 644 937 | 2.534% | |

VK 3601 (H) | 74 723 318 | 2.022% | |

Tiger | 72 650 777 | 1.965% | |

KV-1S | 71 129 571 | 1.924% | |

StuG III | 64 288 359 | 1.739% | |

Hetzer | 61 118 272 | 1.654% | |

IS | 58 446 366 | 1.581% | |

T-28 | 57 748 407 | 1.562% |

KV-1 and PzIV at top – no surprise here, these tanks are considered as very decent “money makers”.

### Five most common premium tanks

Tank | Amount of games | Percentage of total games | |
---|---|---|---|

Type 59 | 46 728 860 | 1.264% | |

Löwe | 38 251 143 | 1.035% | |

T34 | 31 395 271 | 0.849% | |

KV-5 | 16 765 108 | 0.454% | |

Churchill III | 10 624 888 | 0.287% |

Type 59, even though it’s not available in the in-game store for some time, is still the most popular premium tank.

### Most played nation and winrate

Nation | Amount of games | Percentage of total games | Winrate | |
---|---|---|---|---|

Germany | 1 397 058 949 | 37.797% | 48.952% | |

USSR | 1 092 148 877 | 29.548% | 49.126% | |

USA | 733 226 921 | 19.837% | 49.232% | |

France | 271 969 911 | 7.358% | 49.807% | |

UK | 125 492 822 | 3.395% | 49.022% | |

China | 76 339 199 | 2.065% | 50.996% |

Some people believing in “russian bias” may be disappointed – soviet tanks are in the middle of term of winrate. Chinese tanks as new nation are doing quite well but are probably played by more experienced players.

### Most played class

Class | Amount of games | Percentage of total games | Winrate | |
---|---|---|---|---|

Heavy tank | 994 746 859 | 26.912% | 48.601% | |

Medium tank | 884 622 471 | 23.933% | 49.416% | |

Light tank | 778 885 301 | 21.072% | 49.062% | |

Tank destroyer | 638 712 167 | 17.280% | 49.881% | |

SPG | 399 269 881 | 10.802% | 49.084% |

## Winrate/efficiency correlation

XVM efficiency to winrate

WN6 efficiency to winrate

It’s very obvious conclusion – higher winrate usually means better ratings and better rating might indicate better player. Also with number of games played people are getting usually better.
