Win rate on itself doesn't matter. It is merely a product of your performance. Look at it (and its evolution) to evaluate yourself, and think about where to improve if it is too low.

If it is higher than average you are doing things right, and then you are having fun and doing things well. If you improve more by experience then, a higher win rate is just a by-product.

The is my first account.

I have an higher then average win ratio.

Less then 3% of my total games Is associated with CW, TC and platoons.

I have a high efficiency.

I play German tanks, infact my overall win ratio with German ranks s 60.47%.

As someone who is 'recovering' from a TERRIBLE win rate at 5k battles (48% or so at 5k, now almost 51% at 9k) the only tip i can give you is:
- the goal of WOT is NOT to get in higher tier tanks as fast as possible.

In case this needs explanation. When you start with WOT you only want to get in bigger tanks as you keep getting killed by them. So you grind the fast way, getting killed fast (as you are getting XP anyway) contributing NOTHING to team performance. That's how you end up after 2k matches in a E100 and still getting p0wned .

Second ofcourse is that you have to learn to contribute to team performance. Every tank counts and unless you are lucky to be in a good team you likely have to compensate for noobs as well. So learn how you can make a few kills per battle (or do more damage than you receive) and all mechanics that are required to reach that goal (maps, weakspots etc.).

I got a tip too.
Dont care at your winrate first, experment with the game mechanics. When you get better your winrate will increase, because you get better because you are less stressed. It doesn't matter if you play underpowered tanks skill does.

This! ^^^^

I am player that came from 47% win rate and 800 efficiency to 50% win rate and 1024 efficiency, with an average of 60% win rate and 1405 efficiency in 284 battles for the last 10 days (first time I do this calculation, stats are from PlanetWOT)! And they are still rising. Only because I have bothered to learn some stuff about this game. I will not make a new account just to have a "god like" 70% win rate and 2000 efficiency, I don't care that much about them! And I play randoms only with no platoon mates.

I learned to play in tier IV (M4 Stuart) and VI (Easy 8, Slugger and M6) in the old MM.

I stayed there the longest until I had an acceptable level.

winning is fun, and thats the only real reason I care about winning. personally I see eff rating as a tool to help me choose manouvers to increase the odds of winning the game, this however has proven unsuccesfull and so doing I considder eff rating "fun to look at, but doesn't tell me anything else".

I also want to win on tanks I like to play, like my current E-50M WR is at 50% with 200-300 games on it, it is by far the lowest WR I have on a T4+ medium. in order to improve it..I'm trying various strategies in the game. results up to now are unreliable but it does "eliminate" certain strategies as viable options for this tank. I want thit tank to function well in all maps and under all conditions.

I also want to learn how to play my VK2801 scout, I'm not experienced in them and so doing my WR in them is low. I'm most of all intrested in learning good LT manouvers in suboptimal conditions for a scout (city maps or other maps with verly limited options to hide or use mobility), as most losses are caused by me being ineffective in those maps. (already read tazilions guide, application isn't 100% but I'll develop my own style eventually).

there is much easier way:
1) create new account
2) win 1st battle
(if loose go to point 1)
3) stop playing after 1st battle - > win ratio 100%!!!!

so you can all day sit in garage and look at your suber WR 100%, made print screens , show to friends, post on forums...
because only winratio matters , this so fanstastic to have big win ratio... eh.
I want to do that, i gonna do that just to troll people with my awsome stats, i got secondary gmail acount so why not?
I needed a secondary acount anyway to revieuw the tuturial to make a full revieuw of world of tanks on Gamersnet. Since i missed that tuturial because i am beta tester. i hope wg doesnt have problems with this. Its just for revieuwing purposes en I cant make a full revieuw without that info, it would be unfair to down rate wg because they have no tuturial. and to make vids in training rooms and use a troltractor as camera wagon for awsome vids i want to make


Edit: I did it. And i have a acount for revieuwing and Vid purposes, tree flys at the time!

I think it's better to have mediocre WR and eff, that way people that judge others only by them get fooled. Heck if I wouldn't need to play my tanks to get worse stats I'd do it, I like to have an edge against elitist players. :Smile_veryhappy:

soooooo....

Well, you have to take in a consideration , that if that is your first account , your win rate will be lower.
Also, if you only play randoms your winrate will be lower.
If you play underpowered tanks (Panther, Tiger) your winrate and effeciency will be lower.
So my 54% for a 1st acc with playing only randoms and playing all kind of "hitorically NERFED" tanks is up there.
If I made  a new account I could have winrate above 60% nooo problem.. even over 70% if I did it only for winrate..
And as for effeciency.. getting it over 1800 is not hard at all.. it is the easyest thing.. If you are good...


Sooo HOW TO BE GOOD?:

1.Learn the game mechanics (spotting, capping, aiming ect.)
2. Learn about the tanks you are going up against. And our own tank. Armor, gun, viewrange, mobility, camo raiting.
3.Learn about tactics. Like returning to base, defending flanks, pushing to attack, supporting and situational awareness.
3.Pick yourself a "carry" tank .. a tank in which you can carry your scrub team. (OP-1 ect.. and some lower tier(1,2,3) tanks)
4. ...
5.Profit.

And I will end with the words af a wise man: "You are pro,or you are a noob. Thats life." /Athene

to sum it up

1. Go with a platoon basicly any 3 tanks will do but agile meds/heavies work best or play with a company like jerrycan suggested.
2. Luck.

And really mate your max/average exp/damage isn´t even close to a "pro"/good so stop imagining things. You´ve just been lucky with teams carrying you to wins.

Please note that this game is a 13+ game, therefore please refrain from using profanities in your posts, since it can be harmful for some of the players.
please note that World of Tanks has a PEGI 7 rating, not 13+ http://www.pegi.info...=World of Tanks
allowing 7y old kids to play this game can violate laws of some EU countries

and also, it's not the general player's concern/fault/blame that under aged minors are allowed to play in an environment dominated by adults, it's the publisher's fault
anytime a kid enters a game it should be announced, so players can adjust to a more censored tone

Platoons and CW cant improve your winratio.

Only thing that can is to learn to play better by understanding game(game mechanics), and to grind a lot of free exp so you dont play stock tanks(very important for some tanks).
