XVM includes a huge number of World of Tanks mods that can add new features and change game interface almost beyond recognition.
The most famous XVM feature is player statistics. Mod developers were the first to propose player's rating. At first there was a PE (performance rating), then the calculation formula became more complicated, more factors began to be taken into account, and the WN8 rating was gradually born, which many players still consider to be the reference.
XVM color scale:
The higher the value, the better the player’s skill is. It usually shows a two- (xWN8) or four-digit (WN8) format, depending on the configuration settings of the mod.
The essence of WN8 is to compile ideal performance indicators for each tank:
- defending points,
- and win rate.
Then each player is compared with respect to these benchmarks. Using a special formula, player's rating is calculated. In other words, WN8 is a comparison of each player with an imaginary ideal super-tanker.
WN8 formula looks like this:
Where variables with avg prefix - player's actual indicators and exp - expected "ideal" values.
How often statistics are updated?
Expected values are updated daily. The player’s personal rating is queued for updating at least once every 3 days. And if the player does not use XVM, then every 11 days.
