About this site

This site tracks the status and evolution of selected clans on the World of Tanks game, for XBOX and PlayStation.

The monitoring is done daily by collecting, along each day, information about the clans' members on the Wargaming API, and then, for each clan member, query by tank overall performance, store this data on a database an then computing WN8, Win Rate etc.

The rest is just simple math using weighted averages by the number of battles.

This site is not real-time! Clans are calculated daily, but players has data refreshed on intervals ranging from 24h (active player, top WN8t15 clan) to 15 days (innactive player, very small clan, and smaller WN8t15).

About the reported statistics

WN8 is a statistic shows how good, in a given tank, a player is, compared to other players on the same tank. The full calculation method is boring, but it is considered consistent with the win rate of a particular player.

WN8 values around 1,000 are midfielders, and above and below are better and worst values, respectively. These values are divided into ratings, and each rating with a color and name as below:

WN8's Ratings
Value Name
0 Very Bad
300 Bad
450 Below Average
650 Average
900 Above Average
1200 Good
1600 Very Goog
2000 Great
2450 Unicum
2900 Super Unicum

A commander is active if he/she plays at least 21 matches on the last month (actualy, the last 28 days).

Recent Win Rate and Recent WN8s are calculated using only active commanders of each clan, weighing the individual statistics by the number of battles performed on the last month.

  • WN8a: it's the weighted monthly WN8 of all active commanders;
  • WN8t15: it's the weighted monthly WN8 of the top 15 active commanders;
  • WN8t7: it's the weighted monthly WN8 of the top 7 active commanders.

The individual ranking of a commander inside the clan is based on the monthly WN8. This choice makes the ranking more dynamic, reflecting a more up to date reality.

The clan ranking is based on the WN8t15. This yields a more dynamic picture of the scene and avoids cheating by Reroll; and it will not encourage clans to climb in the ranking exclusively through the elimination of the weakest. My explicit intention is to stimulate larger clans, with an elite teaching a larger base how to play better and better.

Suspect Data

This site is the end point of a chain of information that flows from the Wargaming's battle servers to the Wargaming's web API servers, and finally to the my data collectors. If at any point there is data corruption, lag or inconsistencies, the information on this site will be affected.

I try to detect suspicious data, filtering out outliers in the recent WN8 of each player. The name of a player will be in red if an outlier was detected, and the value of the reported recent WN8 will come from the previous collection, which is, hopefully, better information. Usually the problem solves by itself in few days.

Caveats

Any statistics should be taken carefully. Don't be (very) upset if you (or your clan) has a low WN8: the game's objetive is to be fun to play, and if you (and your clan) begame good at it, the better.

Large portion of the statistics are collected in public matches, often even playing in platoon. So these numbers are not accurate predictors of a battle of clans, where greater coordination is required and possible.

After a clan is added to the system it takes a full month of data collection for the recent values (last month) became comparable with those of other clans.

Not all clans of the game are represented on this site. If you want your clan be included, ask me. Even if a clan is being tracked it only appears in listing if it has at least 7 active commanders and at least 25% of all commanders are active.

This information is used to track the most accessed pages, understand the technologies and demographics of visitors (what is your language?), and to help google, as a search engine, to put this site in results of people who may have and interest in it.

I do not track your personal data. If you want to use a tracking blocker like AdBlock, be my guest.

Adding your clan

I don't scan all the clans in the game; so, to add your clan to the list, please send a mail to me, putting in the subject "WoTClans", and in the message body the tag of your clan, the plataform (XBOX or PlayStation), your gamer tag and, if you want to put a flag alogside the clan name, the country (or region, like Europe Union), choose one and tell me their code. I may take up to a Week to do the first scanning, so please be patient.

The clan must have at least 7 members.

I can add clans to the site on my discretion, usually if the clan enters a tournamment, or if it cacthes my attention in the battlefiled.

Tournaments

I may put pages related to tournaments that are going on. I'm not the responsible, organizer, owner or sponsor of these events: I just set up a page that is nothing more than a filter on the site data.

I do these pages for tournaments that catch my attention, or upon request of organizers or participants. To request the inclusion of a tournament send an e-mail with the subject line "Tournament Inclusion" containing the following:

  1. Name: A short name for the tournament, which will appear as the link text for the page;
  2. Description: A longer name for the tournament, which will appear at the top of the tournament page;
  3. Start date;
  4. End date, even if an estimate;
  5. List of all tags from the participants clans, (not the players!);
  6. Internet address of a page with the brackets, optional;
  7. Internet address of a page countainng general information about the tournament, optional;
  8. Internet address of a video about the tournament, optional;
  9. Internet address of a page for discussions (a forum thread) about the tournament, optional;
  10. If you think the tournament should be listed just for visitors of one (or a few) languages, send the two-letter ISO 639-1 codes of these languages.

Note that at least one of these Internet addresses must be supplied.

I only add tournaments once a week, so be patient. The page of the tournaments are in the site menu 2 weeks before and after the event.

The path ahead...

It's always possible to get better. Some ideas to this site, in no particular order:

  • More languages: translate the site to Spanish, Russian and German. But I need help to do it;
  • Compare clans: A page to compare two clans side by side;

Send me suggestions and feedback so I can prioritize what could make this site (and the WoT Gamming Community) better.

API and data freedom

In the same way that this application uses data from other sources, the data in this application is free to be used by other applications and compose different views of the data.

To easy the data transfer it is possible to access this site information in json.

If you do use the API on your application please set a reference back to this page; and send me a message, so I can forewarn you once something is about to change in the API.

The current APIs are

  • Clans: All the clans on the system;
  • Clan Detail: Details on a particular Clan;
  • MoE: The estimated MoE values;
  • WN8: The expected values for WN8 calculation.
