For me personally, nothing is more satisfying that having a really great game in a tank, and having the shiny gold 'M' show up on the results page. At the same time, nothing is more frustrating than having an awesome game that I am sure is an Ace game, and only getting a 1st Class Mastery award... Sometimes this process seems so mysterious.
To date the spreadsheet has well over
600 700 1200 1500 3700 7600 9500 10,000 data entries. The idea behind collecting this data is to give a systematic sense of what the requirements are for achieving the Ace Mastery in any given tank. Although this data can’t actually help earn an Ace, it hopefully will help to demystify the requirements.
The following links provide access to the spreadsheet containing the data gathered to date. These update automatically, so as soon as I enter new data it appears. I have provided two different ways to access this data - the first is an html version of the spreadsheet that has all of the tabs/info, but lacks some of the formatting. The second is a read-only google sheets version that preserves more of the formatting/options. It does not require google sign-in to access. Depending on your device/connection you may find that the first loads more quickly. They both contain exactly the same info. There are six different tabs - all tanks sorted by tier, lights, mediums, heavies, and TD's sorted by tier, and a table comparing the overall XP requirements at each tier.
What do these numbers mean?
There are several stats that I have included for each tank. 'N' is simply the number of Aces in the spreadsheet for that particular tank mode. Ideally each tank will have at least 20 entries. The Median XP is the middle value - 50% of the Aces recorded are lower than that number, 50% are higher. Min and Max are self-explanatory. Keep in mind that the requirements for Aces use a rolling 7-day window, so based on who is playing that tank (and how well) in any given week it may take slightly more or less to earn an Ace.
