I don't know if this is the correct place to post this however, my question is, with my limited amount of games am i or am not doing well? (lots of people have <1000 wn8 but they have much more games than me) as you can see this isn't a reroll account

I wouldn't say you're doing bad. Recent games show a big jump in positive stats and all graphs go up.

Are you enjoying it and feel like you're improving? If you answer yes then you're doing it right.

Hey friend. The best thing you can do is play more and also watch good streamers on Twitch. I personally prefer Skill4ltu but there are many different streamers so just watch them and pick which one you prefer. I went from a very bad player to a decent player quite quickly after that. 

Yeah also what I can see from looking at your stats, it's all constant improvement: http://www.wotstats....ats/eu/mrjj007/ Good job fella!

Honestly, You will never do everything "right" but thats the same for all of us, there will always be areas we can improved upon and get better than we already are, Im still finding stuff i could do differently after almost 47000 games. But as long as you keep it up and keep trying your best then you'll be doing fine :)

Hey there, i used to be in 666th they are a good bunch of guys, you will learn alot from them when platooning.

 

I think i had similar stats to yours at 7k games, just make sure you constatly improve, learn more about the games mechanics, and the biggest tips - explore maps, dont always go to the same place, for example if you are a top tier med with good dpm, and the other team doesnt have alot of heavies, go with heavies and help them win asap and then move on spotting for your heavies. Try to avoid spawning into a game and thinking im an heavy so i must go heavy lane ( this is such a bad approach to this game )

I like this kind of thread. Genuine question and willingness to learn and improve. Only the bad ones that find excuses get trolled.

 

Keep at it, OP, your results show improvement, you're in the right track.

If you're having fun playing, you are doing it right.

Graphs are all looking great! Yeah, just think what you could have done differently when you die, and every once in a while, watch your own replays, you will find soooo many mistakes and things that you could have done better. Even if you were a 3000 wn8 player you would find tons of mistakes when watching your own replays, great way to learn ;)

Specialist Global Tank Academy [SGTA] was a training clan dedicated to teaching new players. Unfortunately, they have been defunct for about a year now.

However, some of their resources should still be available and applicable, try reading SGTA Tanker's Handbook.

I would say that if you are looking at your WN8 then you are doing it wrong.  But that's just a personal opinion.

A tip from me too!

If you plan on learning the maps and the spots, in about three months some of them will have different layouts, so you might focus on other stuff now :) Like knowing every tank's weakspot.

Honestly, I disagree. I use WN8 as an indicator to see if im improving and what not, It has a bad reputation as alot of people use it as a means to insult, call others bot, complain at the start. But its rather helpful, especially for players wanting to improve to see if they are actually doing stuff better and making a difference, It has its flaws and doesnt take into consideration everything, i know. but its more of a general guidance i feel, its also nice when someones trying to get better, they check see a higher WN8 number and it motivates them even more. which may sound abit stupid but its true, i remember back when i was pretty bad at the game, When i saw a big number on my recents or whatever it felt great, and it was actually encouraging to try even harder.

If that's what floats your boat.

 

It doesn't measure fun though.

Well my account is not a reroll either and I think I am fine. What helped me the most was the E75 (well not 100%). Before that tank I never used equipment on any tank and I didn't know about sidescraping etc... So after I got E75 and yes I played it stock and I used to say how that is the worst tank in the game, thats how painful it was. But when I got the top gun everything changed. I started looking weakspots sites and how to sidescrape. I also watched streams and I noticed how they use equipment on every tank so I started using it as well. Maybe the key is not in e75 but in the tank which is your favorite. So in the end It's best to improve on your favorite tank I guess. But I think you are doing fine. Just keep playing.
