During the Battle of Dunkirk event, we have been keeping a war log. In this log we described the progression of the event from the German perspective. If you are interested in reading all about it, you can find the log here!
War log: Aftermath
The battle of Dunkirk was unfortunately quite one-sided, the American armies won time after time during this event. We have once again learned much from this event, and believe we can set up an even better event next time. Having followed the events from both an American and German perspective, an event from the Soviet will be our third setting. But more on that later, in this blog we will take a look at some of the most interesting statistics of the Dunkirk event.
We really enjoyed holding this event and it was a lot of fun to keep a war log. We of course hope you enjoyed reading, but more importantly playing this event! We are planning more events like this in the future and with some changes, we hope we can make the next event even bigger and better!
Of course we also have some statistics to share!
Let us start off with the players per faction. This is the total amount of individual players that has played at least one battle on a specific faction in the Battle of Dunkirk event. If a player has participated in several wars, he is still only counted once (unless he joined a different faction). The numbers are very close to the previous event, on the Germans we see an increase of 1%, while on the United States we see a decrease of 1%.
Unlike the previous event, during this event we have looked at the spread of assault teams per faction. We can see that the United States has deployed the most units by far. A small thing to note is that these statistics include ‘resupplied’ units. A total of over 1,2 million units have been deployed and/or reinforced during the event.
The United States has been hard at work, beating both the German and Soviet faction by a large margin. The results are quite different from the previous event, in which the US had only a very small lead. Germany has participated in the most battles, almost 76% battles had German soldiers fighting. The United States followed with 72%.
The Soviets fought a lot less battles, only 52% battlefields were visited by men of the Soviet army.
Compared to the previous event, more than double the amount of battles took place in capital cities, a total of 248 battles. The Soviets took part in 134 of these battles. The Germans participated in 170 battles. The Americans, who fought the least capital battles in the previous event, now fought (and won) the most battles, with 193 participations.
Last but not least we have also looked at which capital cities saw the most combat. In this event mostly the city of Rotterdam and Prague saw many battles. But all across the map capital cities have been sieged over and over, only the cities of Rome and London have been spared this war. Several cities that only saw a handful of battles have been brought in under the name ‘other’.
