Hawkeye1970 wrote:Please educate me. Are the KSoD stats only war stats? The way I have read these data is that this only reflects active war bases/commanders/squads. It says nothing, besides basic base data, about how a commander does during PvP or during conflicts. The Reason Inask for clarification is that many have pointed to this data to point out certain trends or to support their POV regarding game play. If this data is only war data, then any analysis regarding PvP play or overall game trends is going to be flawed.
If I am wrong about the data, please show me. Thank you.

The chart that would assist you would need to plot the changes in attack / defence wins. I don't have the software to do such a chart and upload it here. I would love to see such a chart. I think it would be v helpful.

Hawkeye1970 wrote:Midge, not saying there is no meaning in the data, only that it does not accurately reflect PvP play. That is fact. It mostly reflects war data. Also, if the number of forces per planet is to be believed (1,009,205 players as per the Galaxy Map), then the KSoD data (116,991) is off by a factor of 10. One cannot draw any statistically significant conclusions regarding how an update affects play.
I also do not believe that game play is “healthy and thriving.” It has suffered from apathy since Jetgate/Rodiangate. I am hopeful that the Prestige level will breathe some life and interest back into this game.
