wvwstats.com - Match Details - PPT Points (% PPT | % PPK) question.

Hello,

wvwstats.com shows in the Match Details for e.g

Server | PPT Points | % PPT | % PPK
Server A | 143k | 75% |25%
Server B | 172k | 81% |19%
Server C | 129k | 76% |24%

This means that e.g. on Server A 25% from the complete war score was from PPK (Points Per Kill) and 75% from PPT (Points Per Tick).
Is this really correct ?

PPT (Points Per Tick)
Points per tick/capture | Base Points | Secured| Reinforced | Fortified
Camp | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
Tower | 4 | 6 | 8 |10
Keep | 8 | 12 | 16 | 20
Castle | 12 | 18 | 24 | 30

PPK (Points Per Kill)
2 points for killing or finishing (stomping) an enemy
1 extra point for stomping an enemy with the Borderlands Bloodlust effect
1 point for killing a hostile dolyak is worth 1 point, while escorting a friendly delivering dolyak provides 1 point at each destination.

    Sad when you can't even talk stats about a match here for fear it may be a match-up thread.

    Yes, the majority of points from every match in every tier is from flipping and than holding structures. This is not surprising at all.
    There is more loot to be gained from flipping and taking structures, the player kills are incidental.

    For the geographically challenged, yes, Tarnished Coast is located IN the Maguuma Jungle.

  • This is the code from wvwstats.com http://github.com/potatofarms/wvwstats
    within it you can find all of the equations he uses to calculate those percentages. They are done by the developer of the websites math and not by Arena Net. Arena Net just provides the base stat numbers from the API to be calculated.

    You can "sanitize" the original post so it's not a match up thread: remove the world names, round the figures (e.g. 143k|75%|25% instead of 142902 | 75.128% |24.872%) and link to the source of the data. Then you're just asking about how to interpret the data, rather than asking about a particular match.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Anet chose to reduce the importance of PPK when they added tier based PPT. Been noting many times that tier based PPT is one of the core scoring issues of WvW and only make dominating servers dominate even more by lazy "defense" of uncontested T3 objective that no one bother with, but people in general doesnt seem to care so it's an accepted feature.

    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

    I agree. Tier-based PPT is supposed to be one of those incentives for capping and upgrading objectives, but it doesn't work well as that since objectives can upgrade unattended due to coverage gaps of opposing servers. Instead it becomes a positive feedback mechanism, allowing winners to win more easily.

    This would be an issue if these were actually monitored.
