Our statistics page has finally come to the point where we can obtain pretty detailed information on pilots' activity on Burning Skies server and we are redy to present you the ranking table for the 'November 2017' season.
This table contains lots of raw data on flight on our server in November 2017, as well as many derived parameters from this data. Based on this array of data, the ranking of fighter pilots, attacker pilots, and scouts :) were calculated.
The basis for the calculation of the ratings were the calculation of standard scores (z-scores) for various parameters, giving each score it's weight and compling the final rating value from these scores. Not digging deep into the calclucalition we can say that the following parameters influence the ratings:
for the fighter pilots - the effectiveness of air combat (50%), flights with return to the airfield (20%), saving the life of the pilot (30%)
for the attacker pilot - the effectiveness of attacks on AI units (50%), flights with return to the airfield (20%), saving the life of the pilot (30%)
for the scout pilot - flights with return to the airfield (40%), saving the life of the pilot (60%)
If there is interest, we'll post a separate article with a more detailed description of the calculations we use.
Calculations of ratings may be adjusted based on analysis of more data and your feedback, but the table for November 2017 will remain unchanged and the position of pilots in it will not change.
Also, in order to make the data statistically meaningful it was decided to require the certain number of sorties to be made by pilot to be eliglbe for the rating value. At the moment this number is 10, however, considering that the November season was incomplete, we made an exception and reduced this number to 7.
Also, according to the results of the season, the top N pilots will receive points that will be summed up during the year. Therefore, it's time to choose an unchanging nickname, since if the nickname will differ from season to season, then the points will be charged for these different nicknames separately.
That's all for today. Enjoy the table on the following link:
