Does anyone know who the set the initial stat levels to be

 

Unicum 60%

Super Unicum 65%

 

Was it the third party websites that were created to monitor them or was it set from WG? If they were set at the start of the game based on no or minimal data then surely now after so much play across the whole player base there would be enough real data to adjust those levels to be in line with the player bases actual statistics wouldn't there?

 

I mean Unicum might actually now be 57% for example?

Every 3rd party site sets their own standard for that.

F.e. http://proships.ru/stat/eu/user/DFens_666

has different colors for every ship based on all the players, f.e. 75% WR can be Purple, Blue or even Green, depending on all players WR (atleast i assume they measure like this). So 75% in purple is really good for that ship, most players dont have such a WR. Green probably means, a lot of players have a high WR aswell. But i also think, they dont account for number of battles played, thats why the lower tier ships tend to have green/blue WR, because you can have a high WR with a few games, and many people play a few battles at those tiers.

But as i said, im not 100% sure, for me it does make sense tho.

 

If you want to have a better picture on wows.numbers, i think you could check for every ship on the details tab and filter for best 50/25/10/5% players. Id say best 10% are Unicum, and best 5% Super unicum?

Would that matter in any significant way?

Matter? It only matters to me because I'm interested.

I mean - would lowering the threshold to be called Unicum matter? 60% will still be better than 57% and the thresholds are probably arbitrary.

This.

 

The people setting up these sites have a lot of experience with WoT and statistics.

While some rounding was involved, the chosen thresholds fit the results.

Unicums are not a mass phenomenon. There should be few. One could even argue the thresholds are too low.

No, WG have not made unicum as a title. It is player made and as such it is subjective.

I believe that the winrate needed for the thresholds is based on how many players have achieved said stats.

 

I think that unicum is set in such a way that if you beat those stats, you are in the top percentile of players

 

Atleast this is how it worked in world of tanks

I don't know if that would matter but stats matter to a lot of people. Clan recruitment is for the most part based on stats so I wondered how set the levels had been set is all.

If a clan wants 60% solo WR, it does not matter if unicum status is lowerd to 57%.

My understanding is that the term "unicum" was originally tied to 60 % win rate by WoTLabs for World of Tanks. I have never played Tanks, but Google seems to support this. 

 

So it's just a custom by players and stat trackers. Warships has similar matchmaking and a similar small portion of players can reach 60 %, so using the same term with the same definition makes sense.

Ah ok I didn't know that. That's where it came from then.

For me it's utterly simple:

Those who are better than me must be Unicorns... and all those that are worse than me are potatoes... easy, right? ^^

I'm almost there, my 60% solo win rate. 

I have set it as my life goal, quit my job and rented a basement from my mom. 

Yet I'm still 0.1% off, my life is meaningless. 

I don't feel so great

 

I pad like a mad man possessed

I take out my most overpowered ships

But every time I come close

And I see my win rate has progressed

 

So close I am, yet so worthless still

Why is there no warpack for this game

I keep telling myself 

I'm going to make it, I will

 

Then it sets in, MrConway is having a pun

Everytime I get close to having a full life

He touches that :etc_red_button:

Wait, let me get my :cap_rambo:
