I have been really struggling lately to do badly. I keep getting into matches and have an idea of what Im doing right.

 

Its really getting me down, I'm actively trying to be a burden to my team AFK doesn't help, camping in heavy and light tanks doesn't help either I'm pretty disappointed with myself as I'm winning far to often.

 

I'm so jealous of the sub 43% players i need to know what the secret is as I'm trying to hit 39% by the end of the year and t this rate it and its just not working.

 

Please guys i need some advice or tips, as I'm desperately trying to un-improve my stats.

I think that you are doing everything correctly. Keeping working hard and soon you will be receiving multiple reports for being a bot - at the onset of each match.

Thanks that's reassuring, as you say I need more reports, is there anything I can do to increase the amount of these reports, other than the techniques I'm already employing?

Use your team mates as hull down.  E25s were practically designed for this but any stealthy tank in a bush will do.

If you are going to play lts, you should yolo to the  least effective position. All efforts should be made NOT to spot any enemy whilst being raped by them.

You could shoot light tanks on your team that only spot targets you cannot hit, cause you're camping the red line.

You could protect the artillery in your heavy tank. Preferably by frequently bumping into them so they wont hit anything either.

You could shove your teams TD's out of their campsites, to promote a more active gameplay.

Oh, and very important: ping the map every 3 seconds. Your team should know where not to look.

I do like the idea of using the E25 as a hull down meat shield.and when the'rye on 10% ill "accidentally" "oops my mouse pad"

 

pity you cant get "un- battle buddy" as an accolade.

 

I like this advice so at the beginning  when someone pings the map? Should start randomly pinging the map in useless coordinates for the 1st 3 mins whilst afk just to enamour myself to my team.

 

Also I've been attempting "reverse tooning", with some really bad players, 

 

Running stock tanks after I have researched and bought the modules.

 

Also maxing out settings and running multiple background tasks to bring my FPS below 20 seems to help.

Find a tank with high noob rating (lot of battles, low WR) and play that exclusively. Also make sure you are stock, run personal reserves and preferrably play during x3, x4 or x5 weekends.

Not to derail this thread with a poor attempt at humour given it's rare to see such insightful serious content, but wouldn't this simply the called the "Road to Icum"? :hiding:

Play something heavy and help your team by pushing your mates around corners while using them for being hull down. So you have a mobile teaming up. Also detracking your teammates to safe them from going where it might be dangerous helps.

Oh. And play a lot of tier 10. More games to carry the team to 39%.

Get yourself a mentor. I see plenty of 39-43% WR players recently, I'm sure one of them will be willing to share with you their secret. I'm sure however that you have to do something to actively hinder your team, as simply botting and AFK-ing will net you around 47% win rate.

When my shaitstorms are behind the horizon, and I can smell them after 3-5 games, I will give you a call to join me in a platoon.

 

Worry not, those are not 15 minute blitz summer ones, those are the *edited*

Have no doubts, ask some of my teammates that said there is no such thing... They where like "Ehm, I gotta go, my aunt has just arrived" after taking some 10 games ...

 

And when those hit, your 43% wr sounds like a summer day on the beach with some urine drizzle from the small half-dark crappy cloud hiding the sun. :trollface:

Yeah that one is awful too, definitely a contender for the crappiest tier 8 med.

1/ All charge the same way in a lemming train, it's failed 99.99% of the time for the last 8 years but who cares people are constantly doing it so it has to work.

 

2/ When the enemy starts to cap your base and you still have to fight half way across the map to the enemy base, under no circumstances return to defend your cap, you can fight your way to the enemy base and cap under fire before they finish capping your base.

 

3/ Never under any circumstances look at your map, it's evil magic and lets you see the enemy tank that's behind you shooting at you, just ignore the map and keep backing up hoping that they will stop shooting.

 

4/ Never under any circumstances watch your chat, just ignore the other players trying to tell you that you are about to be killed by the enemy sneaking up behind you, they don't know anything. 

 

5/ When driving arty park up and never move from that spot, it doesn't matter if you cant hit anything from that location anymore, don't move from that location to somewhere where you can help your team that's not what your tracks are for.

 

6/ When as a scout or a medium you decide to guard arty, always park either behind the arty or just in front of them so the enemy spots the arty at the same time you spot them, then while they shoot the arty you can kill them.

 

7/ Drive your tank destroyer like arty, find somewhere to park up and never move from that location, it doesn't matter if you never shoot at anything after the first 2 minutes of battle don't move from that spot for any reason.

 

8/ As a scout drive forwards as fast as you can in a straight line it doesn't matter if you don't actually spot anything it looks good.

 

9/ As a heavy make sure never to move more than half a square away from your own cap just sit there and wait for the enemy to come to you they will eventually.
