Lusches AH Stats Megathread
« on: February 18, 2013, 10:40:55 AM »
Introduction

Just like last year, I'm not able to create a comprehensive "AH Stats 20XX" report like I used to do in the years before. On the other and, I'm still doing lots of stats stuff, which ends up buried piecemeal in a plethora of different threads. And I still create a lot of charts & tables which would, if gathered over time, still come close to such reports I used to do.

For that reason, I'm going to create this megathread, which will be continually updated (and much easier to find). I will post links to older stuff and repost selected charts as well as create new ones (always open to suggestions). I will still post data in other threads if appropriate and "on topic", but copies will be posted here as well.

For the beginning, here the links my old AH Stats. If you find something you'd like to discuss, I would like to ask you to not punt those old threads, but rather to ask your question in here.

2007
2008
2009
2010

New charts will come in soon...  :old:

AH Fighter Usage by frames
« Reply #1 on: February 18, 2013, 10:46:41 AM »
To expand on the charts I posted in the 109 thread:

AH fighter USAGE (=kills+deaths) over the past 12 years by top 10 frame familes (FW 190 includes Ta 152H, Spitfire includes Seafire):




It should be noted that the P-51 frame means to more than 90% just P-51D, the B is a very minor player in the LW MA. On the other hand, the Spitfire USAGE is much varied, and consisting planes with great differences in performance:



The second chart also shows, that the general reduction in Spitfire usage is not caused by any single mark being less used, but rather has hit them in general.

Lusche, can you break down the Fighter Usage chart to show type?

I'm betting the 38G isn't as popular as the 38L, for example.

Sure I can do that, just like I did for the Spitfire above. Will post that for the most popular / biggest frame families. I just couldn't get that in one chart, as 27 fighter frames with 68 distinct types would have created an unreadable mess ;)

For the beginning, the 38 family:

I'd be interested to see the actual stats of the P-51B vs P-51D usage by year if you've got it... I seem to be noticing a lot more Bravos around lately.  :salute

More top 10 frame families in detail:










The remaining ones (N1K, P-51, Typhoon, La) are consisting of only 1 type or are very much dominated by a single one.

.

One interesting thing to take into account is that for most of 2006, MW arena was included in these stats (and had more players back than than it does nowadays), so that might explain the small bump in P-51B numbers for that year.

Fighter usage by side

Every once in a while someone posts the suggestion AH main arena should adopt a 'realistic' war setup, Axis vs Allies.

This suggestion in mind:


And that's only fighters. With bombers it's far more extreme, with only Ar-234, Ju88. G4M and Ki-67 available to the Axis side.

If it was early 1944, they could actually be an accurate model.

I wonder what the breakdown is by nation?

In which year did that happen? It must have been before 2005, and I don't see any big drop in that time.

Bf109 fans like to ignore this, but look at the Spitfire Mk V usage before and after it was updated.  The Spitfire Mk V was changed ("neutered" in your parlance) at the request of Spitfire fans because it was more representative and filled a hole.  The Bf109F-4 was changed for the same reason, something that Bf109 fans seem completely blind to and would be happy to dump.
