So, I been looking for a guide to what the numbers and colors mean. I understand the win/loss ratio, but I mean stuff like [8k 1410 54%] I have no idea what the 8k stands for or the 1410. I checked my own Service record with the numbers and none matched up except for the win %age. I also don't understand the name of a person in the colors. Like Orange/green/red/blue/yellow and such. Does anyone have a guide or enlighten me on the color scale and # meanings.

In your example.
8k Battles Fought
1410 Efficiency
54% Win Ratio

color is from red to purple, red being the lowest

Not sure what the color signifies on the names in your XVM because I have changed it from default.

8k is the number of games played
1410 would be the Efficiency rating
54% is the win ratio

Red = VERY bad
Orange = About average
Purple = VERY good

Deep red Bad players (~ 6%)
Red Players below average (-25%)
Yellow Average players (~ 43%)
Green Good players (~ 22%)
Purple Great players (~ 3%)

To me, the most telling stat is the efficiency rating.  Even a 9 year old kid can churn out 20k battles and win rate has a lot to do with your other teammates as much as yourself.  But that Efficiency number is all about the player themselves.  The higher the number the better.  For more info about how it is calculated see here: http://wot-news.com/...p/stat/calc/en/

Table of efficiency rating values
less than 600 Bad players (~ 6%)
600 - 900 Players below average (-25%)
900-1200 Average players (~ 43%)
1200-1500 Good players (~ 22%)
1500-1800 Great players (~ 3%)
more 1800 Unicums (~ 0,5%)

The colors for each individual stat are blended to give the player a "Color" with efficiency being the most weighed.
A player can have a yellow WR, i.e 47% and a high efficiency, i.e 1600 and the players "Color" will be green.

After the countdown the players name will have a color, and that is what the XVM mod has "Valued" them as. If you have good graphics you will notice there are two shades of each color, hence the DARK RED players are generally hopeless. Purple named players are only those which have an efficiency at or above 1800.
Hope that helps.

So what is the M and K stand for when it says Chances = (M = 50%,K= 50%) and such. What is M and K short for? It was in my XVM as some sort of prediction I just don't know their meanings.

How does this calculate the efficiency of the player? Also is this global or just per the piece being used at the time?

Yeah, what do the "M" and "K" values mean, it would be helpful to know.

Thanks.

Anyone able to fill some of us in on the meanings of the M & K Values?

No one knows what the M and K for Chances in the XVM means?

I thought M means the possibility of winning
and K means the standard deviation from the number or the +/- from the M value.

now i might be wrong, I am just using what i remember from stats.

Chances calculated using two different formulas. Both of them are experimental and in active development.

Formula 'm': Код: Выделить всё Td=(Tmax+Tmin)/2-T
M=E*(1+R-0.48)*(1+B)*(1+0.25*Td)
Kc=sum(Mci)
Kn=sum(Mpi)
K=Kc/(Kc+Kp)

E=efficiency of player
R=GWR of player
B=normalized number of battles of player (number of battles divided by 100000)
Tmin=min battle tier of current tank
Tmax=max battle tier of current tank

M=effectiveness of player calculated by efficienecy, winrate, battles played and tier
Kc=sum of calculated M for all allies
Kn=sum of calculated M for all enemies
K= win rate

Formula 'k':
Код: Выделить всё Kc=sum(Esi*Usi)
Kn=Sum(Epi*Upi)
K=Kc/(Kc+Kn)
Esi allied player efficiencies
Usi allied player tier
(Epi Upi being enemy stats)


K is a very simple formula, looking only at efficiency rating and tier, while M tries to take number of battles and winrate and other things into account

Awesome explaination. Thanks I was wondering why they didn't add up to 100% together. I was completely baffled at those letters and percentages.

So if we had something like m:57.88 k:63.76 that is... good.. yes?

and somethign like m:23.44 k:34.33 means we should prepare to be roflstomped?

Yes and no. Those estimates are only accurate in the absolute broadest sense of the term. I have won multiple m=5 k=5 fights and lost multiple m=95 k=95 battles. I would say those estimates are accurate somewhat over half the time, but not nearly approaching any level I would call reliable.
