Sorry if this has been asked before but it's more a general question for discussion than anything specific. 

 

What  are people's aspirations with regards to how good they want to become and what are you doing to get better? 

 

For me, I've got my WN8 up from  5xx 1,500 games ago, to over 800. I'm now playing at a WN8 of 1,600 today and can maintain that. My  WR used to be 52% but has dropped to 48% but is on the up again. I'd like to get my WN8 to 1,800 and WR up to 52% again at  least. I was playing at 1,900 today but had 7 dodgy games in the last 12. Several 200 and 0 rated games. I've played 33 today.  

 

I'm watching a lot of videos by better players and reading the forum a lot, picking up on how to set fire to KV1S by shooting between first and second wheel and that sort of thing. 

 

So, what do you do to improve and what WN8 and WR do you want to get to? 

 

I'm hoping I don't get shouted at for this topic. :)

3k WN8 and 70% WR would be sweetspot.

I just turned green at 2.9k battles played 53.69%wr solo random battles. My last 1k battles i have 59%wr and around green/blue stats, so my first goal is a smurf around 5k battles if thats possible :smile: I know a lot of good players so i guess i could toon up and skyrocket my stats but i want to try to get blue soloing/grinding first. It would be nice to become unicum at some point but i don't know if my rl will allow me to reach that. As long as i get better im happy what ever end up as green/blue or purple

I want to get my WN8 to way over 3k and recent to 4k+. I don't want to quit playing arty and terrible tanks, though.

Anybody got any golden rules or favourite haunts they frequent for personal improvement?

 

I've recently rediscovered the keep calm and move on mantra, it helps keep my WN8 up. Rather than try extra hard in the next game if I have a bad one to make up for it, I'll just play as normal and it keeps me consistent.

My current goal is

WN8: 2000~

WR: 55%~

 

I try my best to stay updated about changes & keep watching 'pros' on stream, also platooning with unis when the opportunity presents itself. Platooning with good players is probably the most efficient way to get better. :-)

Short term: Unicum wn8 by the official scale (reached yesterday), 60% overall wr on my Leopard 1. I mostly play it solo, and seem to cap out between 59,6 and 59,9 for a good 300-400 battles now.

Long term: 60% overall wr and unicum wn8 by the retarded scale made by the xvm people (2525)

 

That being said, I don't play to raise stats, but it motivates me to try to improve my game.

I wanna be the very best,
Like no one ever was.
To grind them is my real
To carry them is my cause.

To be honest, stats are just like that. I do not care at all. (no worries I am an unicum player)

My aim is to have fun in the tanks I drive and do the best I can all the times.

It does not matter how much stats I get if I cannot enjoy my games.

 

The only stats I care is win rate because it is associated to the speed I grind for tanks.

Things that help me improve my wn8 are motivational videos. They help me in staying focused and concentrated. 

 

This is the one I listen to the most:

I don't really have any specific goals, I'll be hitting 2350-ish WN8 soon enough, but I'm not really bothered by those stats.

However I'd like to improve my win ratio and my survival ratio while maintaining a rather aggressive playstyle. Still haven't found a way to get rid of my yolo moments.

i want 50% win rate :(

 

but it is impossible

 

as my stats get to nearly 47% i start missing easy shots and bouncing and taking full dmg getting low dmg rolls ect.

 

Then as my win rate drops i start getting super lucky hits , bouncing with light tanks doing full dmg ammo racking full hp is7's ect

 

then my win rate rises then it drops again

had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started WOT as a result my stats are ruined. But im not shallow and dont see the point in a reroll. For me now its about taking part and having a good time.

Dunno, I just like winning games. For stats? as far as it goes it's okey. I don't mind.
