So we all have our favorite tanks and our favorite maps and it's nice to be top tier but just how much of burden does those 3 factors have on our win rate? What do you guys think? If you could chose one, which do you feel is the most influential on you win rate? if any?


1.Top tier? Would you be confident in your own ability to carry a battle as top tier and deal with mostly lesser tier tanks regardless of the map or perhaps being with a poor team?

2.Map? Would you be more confident with a tank of your choice on a map you love, not to be concerned about being bottom tier or with a poor team?

3.Team? Would you be more confident being bottom tier and with a tank that totally does not suit the map you are on for a capable team of players even though you yourself are unlikely to have a great battle or contribution much towards what's hopefully a win?


Just how much do you feel these factors really influence our win rate? Do these 3 factors matter? should they matter? Moan threads suggest it does matter but there are so many counter arguments to all those threads.


EDIT-  FUN/Happiest. On a related note, is the winning the be all and end all of the game? Does winning satisfy that competitive animal inside you or are you content with giving the other guy a damn good thrashing regardless of the team result? Or do you also have to win the battle too to avoid getting annoyed? Would you be as happy stomping on lower tiers in your OP top tier heavy tank on a city map even if some cheeky little light tank on the enemy team has capped and you lose?

The map, but it depends on the tank you are playing as well.


The team is less important but if it melts in 2 minutes flat the match is pretty much lost already unless the enemy team is even more stupid than yours.


Being top tier is not needed at all, it's a nice bonus but of the 3 it's the least influential.

For me the order is:


The team - you need a half-decent team, you cannot do everything alone. If they melt or camp in useless positions you cannot work 15 enemies by yourself. Also, I am not that good to be able to carry alone.


The map - depending on the tank played


Being top tier - not that important, it`s a nice bonus but not the deciding factor.

The team. The best team will usually win no matter what map or player tier distribution. The greater the skill disparity the more certain victory will be.

Biggest factor for me is whether I tilt or not.....  Also French tds never ever ever, they make me tilt really badly.

Too many other factors you're not considering. Tier can matter but it depends what tank. I would rather say "not being bottom tier" rather than being top tier, particularly for some heavies, less so for light tanks. 


But the most important overlooked factors is how many beers have been had.


0-2 beers: Depression over the state of the game. <49% wins

3-5 beers: All woes have flown away, vastly increased brain power, calculated aggression. >60% wins

6-8 beers: Carry? Who cares! Derp gun time! <49% wins, but hilarious

9+ beers: Depression over the state of the game. <49% wins
