Okey Dokey

 

Let me first start by saying, I’m a massive newb, nooby, boon scrub you name it, please insert more if you can…….

 

For a long time I thought I was essentially pretty average at gaming I always seemed to just break even in most games sort of 1 to 1 kdr.

 

No matter how hard I tried I could never better this, same in tanks I genuinely try hard, with the exception of Friday night when I play as drunk as is humanly possible without suffering alcohol poisoning. Although I have come close to achieving this goal many times judging by how I felt on Saturday morning. It’s weird I wake up with new tanks strange crews and tanks I sold in some stupor I no longer recollect

 

 

Recently I decided to go up a few tiers (9-10) after playing this game on and off now for 3+ years and almost 9k battles, for some reason I continuously seem to get my posterior handed to me on a plate.

 

My stats are going from bad to worse and the blame clearly lies with me as I am the only consistently playing.

 

(Although I really should blame my team as tradition would dictate, I’m not proud of myself as clearly I need more practice in my team blaming crapulence. But I am actively trying to toxify the game little by little so bear with me.)

 

 

Recently I made the decision to continue up the Japanese medium line, As I wanted a tank that looked good “whadamistakatomaker” My other stroke of pure genius was to push up the Russian light tank line as I wanted to get another tier 10.

 

I read on the forums about how bad these tanks/line where but still decided to go for them…

 

So I have painted myself into a corner.

 

I try really dam hard to play this game well my main priority is a win for the team even if that means sacrificing myself for a victory.(maybe I need to be more selfish) I watch streams read up on guides and try my dam best except on Fridays

 

I have come to the conclusion that no matter how hard I try I can’t seem to improve.

However in the last few years, I have noticed a marked deterioration in my gaming prowess. It may be age as I’m now in my mid 40’s

 

I just have no interest in playing Russian meds or heavies…..ew they are too ugly for me

 

 

What I need is for the Wot Shrinks to psychoanalyse my stats and tell me what I’m doing wrong

The only nation tanks I play are American, German, British & I've dabbled with a few but only to try. I refuse to entertain Russian tanks because they're basically wallet warrior class tanks.
But, everyone has their speciality. I play best in mobile meds. Light tanks I tent to get into situations & can't fight myself out of & heavy's I tent to play them like a med & fail. TD's are good, but often TD's are slow & frustrate me into doing something stupid. You just having found the ideal tank to your style of play. If its a big concern. Just pump the game with money, grind enough exp, convert & get yourself some of the tier 9/10 Russians or the Type 4/5s & no matter how poor you think you are. You'll soon realise the tank will do all the work for you.

you are doing nothing wrong. tis a game and if you are having fun then that's all that matters.

 

However if you wish to get better then here we go:

 

at 5k games i was a tomato bob too. The first thing i found was these forums and i read phrases "diamond" etc and had no clue what they meant. So i read some more then joined a clan where i was, skill wise, at the bottom. I tooned, improved, tooned, improved then moved clan to a better one where again i was near the bottom.

 

35k games later and i'm about to turn purple.

 

What is important is that you play where you enjoy and can make that positive difference to your team. I'm still poor at tier 10 unless playing 1 of 3 tanks - so i don't play many there. Listen when folks say you did something wrong and learn.

 

oh BTW im 43 now with arthiritis in my right, mouse, hand and im still improving - there is always hope

Heh, I am almost 40k battles and nowhere near "purple". But I know what you are saying, as I am constantly improving. :) Albeit at a much slower pace than most good players I know.

What tanks do you like? If you're trying to play classes you don't have that much investment in its not that surprising you don't do so well in them.

I’m glad to see you’ve started to move away from posts intended to the show a replay response to it’s all about the money.

definitely post some STB-1 replays. That's the best way we can help you

 

people don't realize how easy it is to be purple, it's all about positioning and map awareness. those two things allow you to do more damage to enemies than you receive. i bet you could become a 2000+ wn8, 55% wr player after just 2 weeks of playing with a smurf, or you could just spend a few days watching good streamers play (free tutoring in a way?)

You realise that everybody makes mistakes and that after they are punished.  A degree of open mindedness is okay?
