Ditch the arty, the E100 and stick around tiers 5, 6 and 7.

 

Good luck!

Overall stats don't matter for anything, I wouldn't even look at them. All stats don't matter in general, but if you want to see a useful piece of info just look at your recent 1000 battles.because that's how you really play.

 

 

If Cristiano Ronaldo becomes an Amputee is he still the best player? Judging by his lifetime scores he is, even though he wouldn't be able to kick a ball any more.

He would be if he lost a hand rather than a foot. Or even an ear. :trollface:

 

OP, there are many reasons why this can happen to you. Are you grinding new lines, driving stock tanks, bad tanks, with inexperienced crews? Are you playing tank types you aren't familiar with? Do you play infrequently and do you build up a little rust in between? Did your old favourites get powercrept?

 

An alternative explanation is that this slightly lower output result is more indicative of your skill level. I've tried for a while to hit and stay above 53% but every time I try to grind new tanks or take long breaks I drop again, but I never drop too far before it inevitably climbs up a bit again. So I've accepted that it's probably always going to fluctuate a little around 52.5% unless I stop stubbornly playing the Germans and pay attention to the meta.

1. Uninstall the game.

2. No more rage, frustration etc...

3. Profit.

Feeling the same. WN8 goes up but my win rate is slowly declining just winning one or so.

 

It doesn’t help I get tilted often and just play rash.

 

It doesn’t help when teams lemming one way or a team disintergrates before you have had a chance to do anything.

 

I am going to just focus on a couple of tanks for a whilst(tech tree showcase), Russian mediums and strv for grinding. These appear to be the only tanks I feel comfortable in and the 5x just makes me want to play all of my tanks and I never really find a flow.

 

All in all I wish there was a ranked system which would roughly calculated something like wn8 and just draft teams of 15, With roughly the same overall wn8.

Average spotting was 1,36....now only 0,66 (last 30 days).   So could there be a correlation? :hiding:

With your stats it will even going to drop to below  50%.  So you were just lucky the first 1100 games and now because of large numbers things getting to normal.

As you go up the tiers the battles get harder and you've perhaps fed the decline by buying and playing high tier tanks. The only thing that gets bigger the higher you go are the explosions, for most players everything else declines, such as WR, credits earned, your stash of gold gets spent quicker, etc. The advice already given to stick around tiers V, VI, and VII is wise, and you should do it until you know all the maps in minute detail and know all the tanks in detail.

Try and stop caring. It's a team based game not solo. If you have good battles most battles and keep losing, this is not your fault and a losing streak doesn't have some set time in which it stops, can just keep losing. All you can do is keep positive and play positively, do lots of damage and kills or spot lots of targets if you're a light tank and eventually it has to tell and make a difference. If losing starts bothering you, and it can if you're working your arse off, doing great things during these battles and just keep getting kicked in the teeth with 14 useless teammates, then just stop playing otherwise your own frustrations will start delivering bad personal performances and in any case you won't be enjoying yourself which is what everyone should be doing. Easier said than done, also you can set other goals than winning if it's just constant losses, try to mark a tank or pick up a Radleys or a whatever else might offer some level of fun and interest, since winning is clearly off the table.

I have another solution for WoT frustration:

 

Play a game like Sekiro, and WoT frustration will feel like a walk in the park afterwards.

Do you want an advice? 

Don't play anything below 5 and above 7.

Your winrate will get better

Don't worry it happens to all of us, since update 1 my WR was falling slowly but last 1k battles its going up again.. these things happen don;t worry about it. In the end it doesn't really matter its a game.

thats spot on bud almost the other contributing factor i would say is ive had some big old brakes from the game my account is from 2013 but in reality i've prob had about 2 years of use out of it lol 

 

but if you take a look at my tier spread you'll see i've spent quite a bit of time down at the lower tiers and didn't even buy my first prem until 2018 (end of) tho i will say that after a 3 year break buying a t8 ht to start with that i got cuz it looked like a french tiger pikenose was stupid lol a defo kill any stats i still had left that weren't going red but after about 100 or so battles in the m4 49 i wanted to start the french ht line from t5 onwards so far im slowly grinding out the t9 ht but realized my games where i meet t9/10 are so much worse than the one where im top tier and what surprised me is i knew that it was me not the game i had gone and done what id heard every tuber ive watched say don't do and that's when it hit me im using 3 year old skills from 3 tiers below where im playing at 

 

i will say one thing tho didn't learn my lesson as im proud owner of is6 and 112 lol but have not played them too much as want to wait till i can get a good amount of their potential out in a battle but i will say one thing my 112 is my highest dmg-er at just over 3700 and i got ace tanker as well lol

I have the same problem and recommend the same solution for you as I do for myself. Just play better. Sometimes losing streaks happen and there's nothing you can do.

It is a game. Use your stats to get a ROUGH idea of how you are playing, after that forget about stats.

Win rate is stupid... but yeah, if you want to improve
1. no arty!!!

2. play tank/line that is as much OP as possible (italian/soviet meds)

3. have only one crew over entire line!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - this will bump your win rate by few %
4. load premium ammo first and if its not needed then switch to regular - it very important to get first shots of damage and feel at ease - or go full gold loadout and see win rate rising
5. never go first... try always using your team as meat shield, when i stop doing it im losing more often.... winning is not fun sometimes, you just hold one stupid position until enemy make mistake.... i dont like it and thats why im having mixed results

even if you do everything like unicum you might not see results however... sometimes game just ends... what you will find out is that fun and results are not complimentary.... if you want to win you might get bored sitting in one position

Losing streaks exist ,everyone  gets them ,randomness sometimes gives you horrible streak of bad teams , regardless  of my active , front row gameplay still couldn't influence the outcome , because teams are so bad they are determined to throw and lose the game 

 

 

but next days randomness will come around on your side ,and you will get good teams ,you just have to make use of them ,and the rewards are great ,you can reverse all the bad losses you got , you just need to keep a positive attitude don't let the bad games bring you down .
