How to improve your Personal Rating (PR) - Stop Playing!

A few days ago I checked my stats on a well-known website. It shows graphs for several categories  -  Win Rate, Average Damage, Average Experience and Personal Rating.

Since I had not played Random battles from late August to the present day the graphs for the first three categories was flat, but the graph for PR showed an improvement!

Could this be because  better players are not playing so much (or leaving) and worse players are playing more (or joining)?

  • what you said could be the case
  • meta changes (some ships lost firepower) are more probable

And yes, you get these PR jumps even if you continue playing.

Yes ive seen this aswell.

Could also be, that some ships are actually getting powercreeped, despite everyone denying this :Smile_trollface:

F.e. i checked my König, where i have 300-400 better PR now, than when i played it

You can see that, when you check the ranking on wows.numbers. It wont update there unless you play the ship. But on your personal statside, it does update.

Err, I don't think anyone is denying the vast amount of powercreep in this game.

Ah.

Well, I have a simple rule to make WG's PR department a bit clearer to me, it goes: if WG says something, assume they mean the opposite.

This is why I've always thought that PR should be calculated per patch.

PR is a comparison of how well you do compared to other players playing the same ship. If you deal 200k damage average with the ship, but everyone else does 300k, then you're going to have a low PR, but if you deal 5k damage average, but others deal 1k, then you're going to have a high PR.
