Just unlocked the engine on the T-54 meaning it's now in it's elited state. All I need now is the motivation to play the tank for 300 more games.

ERROR: Motivation not found.

Well, with no premium ammo, you can burn those last credits to unlock the 140. However, its up to you, you arleady proved enough.

Friendly up-buff...

 

Compared our 200 battles reports and strangely I have higher WG stats but WN8 is much lower :medal:Russian BIAS!

 

Anyway good luck with T-54 :P

*900 games played* - FINAL REPORT

 

So I've decided to end the experiment with this report.

Why is that? Well I've just elited the T-54 tank which means my stats will get no lower than they are now. All that would happen if I play the remaining 300 games to the obj 140 is that my stats start recovering again towards 62% WR and 3300 WN8 like that happened on the T-43 and T-44.

As this is the low point of my stats and already proving everything I think needs to be proven there's no need for me to waste all the time grinding this tank out any further, it's become quite repetitive and boring and I'd rather turn my attention back to AoA while putting this account to sleep.

 

It was a fun experiment though even if I'd rather not do it again anytime soon. :D

Here are the results in short after 897 games played.

 

 

 

 

T-54 stats at the point I've just unlocked all modules. From here on my stats would only climb rapidly.


 

 

Good luck on the battlefield and see you around on AoA!

I don't want to! :P And it's already unicum.

 

I want to finally make AoA purple too! I'm no true unicum until that happens.

While I don't doubt your ability to play the t54, would you say that the 200 pen of the gun is such a drawback (compared to having for example 230 pen) that it is not that much fun?

I believe T-54 has 330 standard penetration

Shame that this is over, though I completely understand that you dont want to play those last 300 games. Would be interesting to see where you ended up, stat-vise.

 

As for the experiment, you have shown that it is possible to get to unicum stats while maintaining total f2p. You have also shown that your set conditions have an impact upon your stats, at least on a very quick comparison between the two accounts (3100 for RL and 3800-3900 for AoA). It be very interesting to see a p2w version of this and I, personally, have nothing against it being done on the NA server. Still gonna require quite a bit of money though.....

Gold noob. :trollface:

 

In unrelated news I have just finished grinding the AMX M4. It's good to have 330 alpha.

Either you are a total awesome player, or all the green/blue/purple players I meet from at tier 5 spamming gold ammo are just wasting their money.

Your experiment doesn't really prove much. We already knew that skill is the most deciding factor in this game. I consider this a bragging thread.

I am very interested to see if you can sustain your win rate when you get higher up the tiers, where it is more difficult for a single great player to carry a team.

Anyway, after you reach tier X, could you please do 100 games in AMX 40 with standard ammo and show your results?

 

And I am very interested what happens when he drives more than one tank at a time, like, 219 tanks from his garage in a round-robin fashion as I do. I wonder if he is that good on all of them? What would his stats be if he also drove tanks he is not good at? He admitted being bad at T-50, what would happen after a week of leveling the American medium line? Or, as Wulfgar said, 100 games of AMX 40 or M3 Lee?

You see, while my overall stats are mediocre at best, I could surely improve them if I only drove tanks I'm good at (I do have tanks solidly above 50%). Would this make me a better player? Or just a mediocre player with pimped stats?

Yeah, ok, you would pimp your recent wn8 from 655 to 780 if you'd only play the 'good tanks'. Was that the question?

No. The question was if my skill changes if I play different tanks. Or, to put it another way round, if a unicum becomes a less good player when the tank changes. Do stats reflect your tactical skills, reflexes, instincts? And if so, do you get slower/duber/ less astute on another tank?

Playing tanks you are not good at? Why? Just stop hoarding stuff. And if you have 200 fuckin' tanks in the garage you surely have enough free XP to skip bad tanks like the M3 and AMX40.
