So there are 2 ways to calculate winning percentage:

1. Winning percentage = total win / total matches including draws
2. Winning percentage = total win / total matches excluding draws
OR
3. Undefeated percentage = total win + draws / total matches (This will yield the highest percentage)

As there can be a high number of draws, there can be a significant difference between the 2 methods above.

Our record: 171 wars in total, 127 W, 24 D, 20 L

Our winning percentage, including draws, is: 74.27%
Our winning percentage, excluding draws, is: 86.39%

Not sure which number should be reported in the poll. However, whichever method we choose, we should be consistent.

As Tako/Tat provides ridiculous amount of damage boost, I believe the right method should be winning percentage excluding draws (as most draws are 45-45 Tako ties). Hence, I'll report the 86.39% to the poll.

The best method though, would be to include non 45:45 tie draws (i.e. exclude 45:45 draws), but it's likely more complicated to get the number.

Hello DarkRebel, to keep it easy and to make it comparable it would be better to calculate 100/number of wars*wins...

No, my vote was 70 - 80%. I'm at the high end of that, but in the correct range.

OK but for me it is again 63.79%...

I concur - your number of wins of 111 divided by your total wars of 174 is more like 63% than in the 70-80% range.

The formula is simpler than in the original postings - it's (a) wins / (b) total wars (wins + losses + draws).

Alright, my two pennies worth in this thread. Stats:
231 wars
130 wins (giving 56% for the poll)
4 draws
97 losses
Mediocre at best.

My squad is in exactly the same place as TKTB51’s...P killed us too. Plus a combo of the introduction of GR, followed by the Kindle Fire debacle, caused me to loose 5 great players. Rebuilding the squad since has been a labour of love, which bad matchmaking messes up every time. That’s it! Pretty crap.

I lost my lowbie account when my Kindle account died.

people got burned out by the new "rat race" to build out 11 (most of our players were mid-10s at that point, so were seeing that there was an end to the grind) ...

I don't think GR did much to hurt our group.

I think most squads go through streaks. We started off as an inexperienced squad and took our lumps, but now we have a bunch of experienced players.

245 Wars
160 Wins
65.3%

Last 26
26 Wars
23 Wins
3 Ties
88.5%

It's reached the point where we score 45 in every war, regardless of outpost mix, but we've also had a run of matchups with squads that don't seem to be that active. They have a few on at the start, and then it gets real quiet on the other side. On paper the matchups look fair or even unfavorable to us, but nothing beats being active in wars.

We are always looking for active players. We have a squad of 20+ members, and we war at least once a week. We have maxed out our Perks. We like helping new players, so all players are welcome!

Total wars of 105
