It happened like this the last time I approached an overall 49.5% win rate. Exactly like this.

 

Maybe it's an algorithm, maybe some [edited]sucker is manipulating it, I doubt that but I do know this is how it happened the last time around and I can only assume that my current losing streak will not stop until I drop below a 49% win rate before it slowly and painfully ebbs and creeps back up before BANG! It all starts again. It could go on for weeks, last time it was months. But it is all there. My recent win rate was 51%, now it is 49% and falling.

 

I know. I know. I am just imagining it. It's not really happening at all.

Don't take this the wrong way but as a constructive criticism but you frankly aren't doing enough damage per game or surviving long enough to actually influence it. I know this is an obvious suggestion but try to last a little longer in the game maybe hang back a bit behind heavies and pop out take a shot and withdraw. You need from what I can see to at least double your damage per game before you can even think about influencing it.

As the chap above said you may have hit your skill level, I've hit mine now around the 55-60% WR and 2-2.7k Wn8 level.

Same thing happened to me a while back.

And now I have been stuck at around 50.15% for half a year already.

The better I play, the more often I am let down by the rest of the team. 

The worse I play, the better my teams become. Feel so stuck.

same here for the past two weeks.

I had been averaging at 50.43 for months, in the past two weeks I averaged 43-44%, now my WR is down to 50.19...

indeed. For instance my wn8 is close to 1900 and my recents run around 2000-2200. Im at my skill level and cant go further with my own skills. My winrate as recent can hover between 55 and 65 depending on the day. Op hit his cap most likely.

It's a natural cycle. You go up, and it could be because of skill or runs of good luck, but then skill caps out or luck runs out, so you are back into the normal cycle of things and you go down again or get stuck at a level.


 

What you need to do is work out firstly how to stick at where you are and get comfortable, sometimes it's knowing you can go back down a few tiers to get your WR solid again, then set off with a plan for increasing WR again. That can be a regime of crew training, playing tanks you are good with a lot more, looking at tank stats so you aren't grinding lemons, and knowing when to stop during a run of bad games.

Look up your wr graph of the last year/months on some stats site.  Is there a plateau? Yes? Then thats a skillcap. Which can usually be broken by a small dose of git gud.

Your performance is average, therefore your win rate is average too. I don't know why you would expect to win more if you're really not playing up to that level.

Simply get better at the game and you'll win more. I know it's easy to say but there are some fairly basic things you could do to improve your play dramatically.

Once again. WG DO NOT DO skill based MM. Or so they say.

 

Which is my [edited]point!

skill cap level has nothing to do with skill based MM, frankly I gave you some advice with you totally disregarded and came out with the same old "WG make it so I'm not a unicum" line.

Wrong. I am getting better all the time. The better I play the more I lose. WG rig this [edited]game for you to lose. That is all.

You can check your own stats here:

 

http://wotlabs.net/e.../Private_Pearts

 

Despite having over 13,000 battles under your belt, you don't exactly play and specialise in one tank or even tank type. You need to find the tanks you are most comfortable with and play the life out of them. 

 

You have a Skorpion G - you should go kemp bush and farm some damage to get your overall WR and WN8 up.

Tell you what then. Explain to me, in words that an idiot can understand, why skill cap has nothing to do with skill based MM. I really do not undestand the logic.

You have a Skorpion and you have a Hellcat. You've played more games in the Skorp than the Hellcat despite it having a much poorer WR, so stop playing the Skorpion! Come back to it later, there is no point in flogging a dead horse.

There is no skill based MM. There is no algorithm that puts you in crap teams all the time.

 

I use XVM and sometimes I am slapped into team after team of tomatoes but I am skilled enough to carry a team in the right circumstances where my tank selection and map assigned in the battle are harmonious (example Strv 103B in Fiery Salient or Bat-Chat 25t in Karelia). Sometimes I am in a team with a unicum playing in their tier X light tank and the unicum is the first to get killed. Sometimes I am in a team where XVM says we have a 13% chance of winning and we win. Sometimes we have a 70% chance of winning and we get roflstomped. 

 

This is World of RNG my friend. The game is not out to get you. 

 

The only way you can get a higher WR and WN8 is to play better. It's not what you want to hear but unpleasant truths are harder to hear than comforting lies.
