Hi Guys,

 

Currently my win ratio has slipped down to 48.3%, it has been a gradual slide into oblivion, it was over 50% after I had completed T4 tanks. My whole intention was to solely utilise the Soviet tree, but I have included the US TD tree. Infact my win rate on the Jackson is extremely high when compared with the Soviet tanks.

 

In recent days, played in the morning the teams have been diabolical, won 2 out of 8 games, all so very de-motivating and not fun, think I might cease playing at this time of day.

 

Now I am beginning to think that I  do not have balance in the garage, that some of the tanks need to be phased out, does the MM disadvantage me because of the tanks I have.

 

Anyways very open to any helpful constructive posts, really beginning to despair, if it goes under 48%, game set and match for me, probably sell the entire garage and start again, after a reset, don't want to have to do.

Why would it? What would be the point of that?

That's beyond stupid and that's also not how learning to play works. Try to improve and your stats will rise. It's as simple as that.

Why would you be even considering selling and resetting just because of a win rate? 

You're a fairly new player still got loads to learn, if you're unhappy with your win rate drop down to lower tier or you just got to carry harder or platoon up. Either way I wouldn't be even considering resetting because of win rate that's a waste of time

Guess you could reroll if stats are that a big a deal to you.
You may think you have a better knowledge of which tanks are better now, but really with nerfs & buffs never static and prone to change.
Rerolling and starting again, couldn't do it myself, but hey.

You will lose lots of credits selling the tanks you grind. My winrate were at 44% when I started playing again, finally got it to 48%. Sometimes you can't control the winrate of a tank, my t34/100 went from 50% to 45% no matter what I did. My Tiger P went from 49% to 42%, maybe I powergrinded too much in the end. My vk 100s winrate were at 30% after quite some battles, got it up to 48%.

 

Look at your marks of excellence, if they improve without the winrate you are at least doing something right, over time your combined efforts will gradually show off in positive winrate.

Some players are at 60 000 battles with 46% winrate, those players need thousands of good battles to make a change in their statistics.

Do you enjoying the game? If yes, everything else is secondary, including (or especially!) stats.

 

If you're so worried about stats that the *game* (rather than it being a business for you) is dispiriting and not fun, then: stop playing it!

No. That's just silly. MM is not based on what tanks you own. It's simply based more so on the one tank you decide to drive. Nothing else.

I mean we all have bad days with losing often. But if it keeps up, then either you are playing tiers you are not ready for. Or tanks not really suited for you. As if you can't react in time, help out where and when needed etc. I doubt your garage selection has anything to do with it. But still it's not the worst idea to explore other branches. To find tanks better suited for you on mid tiers vs what you have now.

I'm in no way the best player out there but i manage. And at that stage of under 20k battles i utterly sucked too. I and many other 50+ WR players did had less than than that at some point. Only a reroll or an experienced player on a new account can get better stats. And not the best they can either when their account is new and low on silver. So give it time and don't sweat it. 

I'd say play everything and stick with what you like. Get in to an active clan so you play platoons and team related game modes and raise the battle count. In time you'll get better and get a sense of what you should and shouldn't chose.

Simplest advice:

Just continue playing until you reach 10k games, by all means avoid rushing tiers. Word of advice - play heavies, Russian are the most suitable for learning.

You will play much better (at least you should).

Most importantly, you will realize that what you are thinking now, and what you have posted here, makes no sense.

 

As for the stats - don’t let them rule you, unless you want to pass to the dark side and become numbers wh0re.

Here, check my stats: Look my recents now mom, I am blue! Shait, who cares...

Scrap that - I am still yellow. Nice XVM camo. It’s an advantage more than you can imagine.

This may sound crazy, but have you considered working on your stats to get them back up again?

 

Hope that advice helped!

Guys,

 

Thanks all of you for your thoughts and the advice, it all makes very good sense. You are all absolutely correct, to restart again, would be a nonsense, a waste of time and money.

 

The most important that as a number of you said, was why worry about your win rate, it does not mean anything, it is having fun.

 

Cheers, thanks again

Do you mean that you think your current selection of tanks are not the optimal for the current map rotation meta, or that having certain tanks gives you a worse team?
