Disclaimer: sample sizes are quite small so these stats may not be entirely "accurate"


Stats taken from: http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/index.html

What's compared is the last full week pre-nerf (11th to 17th Nov) vs 1st full week post-nerf (25th Nov to 1st Dec) of all 4 servers (Asia, NA, EU, RU)

The week in the middle of it (18th to 24th Nov) is skipped as it has 4 pre-nerf days and 3 post-nerf days in it clearly skewing the results



Player retention:



A clear drop in number of players who choose to play the ship, but those who do seem to play it about the same amount as previously


Combat performance:



Loss of average dmg seems to be relatively consistent across the board - around 13...14% lost.




Kills per Battle have dropped quite significantly. I guess that's the "DD vs DD fights" part which WG claimed to be addressing (with a DWT nerf, don't forget that)




Of course, with the loss of dmg and kills the survival rate of YY itself drops aswell.

Basically you die in a game which you would have previously survived at a rate of:

  • 1 in 6 played on Asia
  • 1 in 10 played on NA / EU
  • 1 in 16 played on RU




Both previous combined give a rather steep drop in Kills per Death. Asia has lost over 1/3, others are somewhere between 1/5 and 1/4




However spotting dmg per game doesn't seem to be too affected (Asia, pls, get a hold of yourselves). There's a slight drop, but that could be nothing more than a natural variation patch-to-patch





With the clear reduction in its DD vs DD capabilities YYs ability to cap is dropping aswell. Meanwhile defense is staying at more or less the same level... Asia, what are you doing? :Smile_veryhappy:

The numbers here should be seconds capped out of a full cap, the number shown in your post-game results. For example - in a Domination match 60 would be a single full solocap. But I might be wrong about that





With everything listed above going downwards it's not surprise YYs WR has taken quite a significant hit going from "solidly above 50%" to "solidly below 50%".

NA's the only one where YY actually stays on the same top side with 50.36%. Both - EU and Asia - have dropped by over 4.7%
