What do you have to do to raise this stat?  Played all day(literally)in tier 9 Patton raised my win rate in it by like 4%, I think.  Every 3rd or 4th game I was earning a 3 badge at least.  Started at 1.2715 and finished at 1.2714 :facepalm:.   Any help on what tank to play or any tips would be appreciated.  Please constructive answers only.  Thanks.

For overall STAR1 improvement, fix low tier tanks. I fixed a couple bat tier 5s recently, and STAR1 shot up from 1.46 to 1.5 in a week.

 

For specific tanks, damage is king. Get lots of damage, but also make sure your average spots are high.

Looks like it compares the way you play a tank against the average stats of that tank on all the attributes i.e.; damage, kills, etc.

 

you get a positive or negative number compared to average of that tank for each attribute.

 

less platoon and tier penalties.

 

on wotbstars page, click on what's in parentheses just to the right of star1 a page opens where you can see how each of your tanks compares in each attribute.

Playing these lines have yielded me some easy purple and dark purple star1 values

  1. US meds
  2. US non turreted TDs
  3. German tanks (apart from Grille line)
  4. Brit meds

In order to achieve a high STAR1, you need to do damage, win, and survive most primarily.  There are other factors involved, such as receiving an ace tanker for the first time as well as hit rate and spot rate, however these are all minimal compared to the first three.  If you want to be daring and go for higher risk but faster STAR1 acceleration, do not platoon.

 

STAR1 is measured by individual tanks as well as tiers, which then finally factor into a final STAR1 rating with higher tiers weighting more heavily.  If you want a higher STAR1 in an individual tank, you just need to do more and play better.  If you are looking for a better tier STAR that factors into your overall STAR, you may want to look at tanks you need to rehab or tanks that have not been played to their minimum number of battles to qualify for STAR.

I tried to raise my STAR once ... 

The more tanks I got to the "minimum" 

The lower my STAR got.

 

LOL -- I'm a nub.

 

But since 3.8 -- who cares!


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Have a high spot per battle. Some of my highest ranked tanks has the highest spotting average despite low k/d or damage ratio.

 

My Angry Connor has a 1.2 spot average but I don't hold the highest survival (I never do), k/d, or damage ratio (cuz I believe bloodthirsty play leads to high damage). However, it seems that spotting alone got me the highest star 1.

Lemme show you something. Here are two players' respective Tier 10 stats.

 

Player 1

 

Player 2

 

Which of the two do you think is a better player?

 

The answer should be obvious. There's very little argument otherwise. The second player swamps the first in average damage. WR, survival rate, even hit rate - all wildly higher. Player 2 is better in every single statistic of the most important tier of the game. I didn't post them here, but Player 2 is also superior in Tier 8 and 9 by damage, as well as every tank that isn't a premium. Everybody who has been on the app longer than a few months will agree that Player 2 is the better player.

 

Guess who disagrees with that?

 

STAR1.

 

Player 1's and 2's overall STAR1's, respectively

Tier 9-10 even get a much higher weighted rating so that is an astonishing example.

The short summary to all of these analytic answers on how STAR1 is calculated is simple.

I don't get it - how is star1 disagreeing? All the star1's for player 2 are higher than those of player 1's correspondingly.

STAR1.

Well, since I seem hopelessly below average for STAR1, I figured it was worthless as a metric (ha ha) - denial is not just a river in Egypt.

 

My poor high tier play is what is sinking it. I'm slowly working my way back up....

tier * 10 = qualified star1 (as long as it is top 6 tiers)

example: 

tier 10 tanks require 100 battles

tier 9 tanks require 90 battles

and so on for each tier

 

if you have a tier 10 then tiers 5-10 are eligible to calculate into your star1

 

if you have a tier 9 then tiers 4-9 are eligible to calculate into your star1

 

To have your star1 ranked you overall among the entire player base you have to have avg tier 6 or more and a tier 10 with 100+ battles

Player 2 has an overall STAR1 rating of around 1.62.

Player 1 has an overall STAR1 rating of around 1.74

 

That's nearly 150 spots up on the STAR1 leaderboard.

 

I edited my original post to reflect that.

This.  

 

The only people who pay attention to the star1 leaderboard are rerolls. I'll go out on a limb and say that no one in PRAMO knows their star1 or where they're ranked by it. I've pored over more numbers in Blitz than in my accounting classes in college, but I've never used star1. It's nothing more than a forum epeen thing - and a false one at that. OP is at 42,000 battles. Improving star1 is a worthless exercise at this stage: it is almost impossible to move and says less about your quality as a player than a snapshot of your last 100 battles. You will not progress as a player by buffing it. It's a silly goal.

Unlike star1 they're a relevant starting point but not the end all and be all. There are intangibles of sorts, because ultimately the goal of the game is to win and thus the most valuable skill is "knowing how to win" (and that's got absolutely nothing to do with "knowing how to pad your winrate" which, as a "skill" is only a few steps removed from rerolling).

I dont worry about star1 at all.

 

My star1 on my old account from a few years ago is way higher than my current star1.:playing:

 

Does that mean that I was a way better player 2 years ago than now, and that the more I play, the worse I get?:justwait:

Thanks for all the constructive and detailed answers.  Been out of power and internet due to the hurricane but got it all back just in time to catch the update.  Will begin the tank rehab starting at tier 5 and work my way up from there.   Unfortunately I go back to work tomorrow so limited play time for a few days.  Bad part about the lower tier tanks is I don't own most of them anymore and with the spare parts debacle I'll be playing tanks that are inferior to the ones I previously owned.  Go figure.
