Just a holding reply until Mr Drummond arrives with a fair pithier rejoinder than I will ever manage, but I would say, ahem:

To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man

 

I would humbly suggest that in this instance, Mr Shakespeare is alluding to the fact that you are only responsible for your own performance, so (and I haven't checked your stats) if you try and weigh in with at least a "Fire for Effect" medal each battle, you can at least take the attitude that you haven't thrown away your tank early.

After that, it's a bit of a lottery with what sort of team you get, I've had some horrible first few games then gone on a win streak and ended with a session of 60%ish win rate, anything over 50% I'm very happy with personally :)

I find the game takes concentration and effort. It's easy to just switch on and dive in without getting mentally tuned up. I used to do that all the time with similar results to yours. Now I always watch a twitch/youtube video of whatever tank I'm going to play first. Then I try to emulate those tactics. Doesn't always work but has certainly helped me avoid starting with a bucket full of losses.

For me it varies from day to day.

Sometimes I get a win in the first battle and sometime I don't.

Sometimes I can get wins in the first 3 or 4 battles and sometimes I can't.

Sometimes I have won the first 6 battles of the day and othertimes I have had 6 losses in the first 6 battles.

I may get periods of alternate win/loss, and I may get periods of alternate win/win/loss/loss. 

Sometimes I screw up and die early and it is a win.

Sometimes I survive, play well and it is a win.

Sometimes I screw up and die early and its a loss.

Sometimes I play well and its a loss. 

 

I don't go looking for patterns, unless I am choosing wallpaper or carpets.

Depends on you, and the weekends ofc.

Once i have 20 victories out of 27 battles. :)

And if you know how to play effectively to win the battles, you'll definitely have many wins! :D

I play T8 most of the time, because i find it really balanced, and there's no gold spam like T10.

Has it occurred to you that maybe the reason you lose the first couple games is because you aren't playing very well and then after you've 'warmed up' over a few games you start playing better at which point you then win 50% of your games because rather than being 'well calculated' to keep you under 50% wins your games are actually perfectly balanced and you just aren't good enough to lead your team to a win more often? 

 

TL;DR Want to win more? Play better.

I will be honest (and a bit blunt at the same time):

 

1) You are currently a below average player.

2) In the long run, you are the only constant of your teams. You will get worse players in your team, you get unicums in your team and anything in between. Your decisions will determinate your overall win rate.

 

How to increase your win rate:

1) Positioning and map awareness. Watch the minimap and react to what is going on. 

2) Deal more damage. Learn the weakspots of the enemies.

3) Take less damage. Don't get shot if you don't benefit from it. This doesn't mean you should be camping in the base.

 

How to improve said aspects? Watch streamers with win rates above 58%.

I'd love to see some statistics. It's probably just your memory, kind of like some players think they're hot crap because they have a lucky result once in a while.

 

For what it's worth, what would Wargaming have to gain from 'rigging' your battles? Heck, even if there was something to gain from it, it'd be mighty complicated to execute - if not outright impossible.

WoT aint daft

 

They will know that if you win your first 4 or 6 or whatever battles you go away and do something else

 

So only a few players will get this each day

Statistically the average WR is going to be about 49% anyway, so don't stress about being an average player.

On a related note, if the MM tries to keep the teams balanced, how does anyone get a winrate above 50?

I had 49% WR when i started playing WoT as well, it's okay, you'll learn the gameplay slowly, and by learning the gameplay, you'll increase your WR. :)

MM only balances tanks. It does not balance skill. That is why a good player can carry their team towards more wins and a bad player can drag their team down to more losses.

MM doesn't balance teams, it just sets the teams, that's all, WR depends on players, that they lose the battle or win it.

If you want to win more games there is a few things that you could do and/Or concentrate on;..

 

  • The easy way is to chuck a 4 skill crew in a high mobility tier 2 - 5 (But thats no challenge)..

 

  • ..Another way is to just drop down a few tiers and just play your favorite tanks or tanks you do well in...

 

  • The hard way which only works over a long period of time is to play light tanks and or high mobility meds/Tds and just concentrate on your map awareness (Mobility and map positioning) and this will benefit you in all classes of tank.

 

 

In the short term;...Concentrate on these things..

 

  • Preserve your HP for late game and/Or when its beneficial (Dont pick fights you cant win)
  • Concentrate on getting guns out of the game (Kill low health targets first ) and on the flip side try to keep as many of your teams guns in the game as possible (Share your HP as needed)
  • Map positioning
  • Do not play slow tanks as they are team dependant (Mobility/Repositioning wins game no matter how big the oponants gun)
  • Try to be unpredictable in all that you do (If you keep doing the same thing ie; Poking a ridge or a corner in the same place the enemy will just pre-aim you)
  • When low health drop back to support/Sniping
  • Wolfpacks when formed can be devastating to the enemy (Think collective DPM)
  • Try not to be alone (Collective guns and HP pools work better than the lack of it)
  • Be 'Reactionary' at all times (React to the battle and win the map in increments)...Area denial can be very effective.
  • Never take a shot if you are going to receive one in return (Meds,TD,s and Lights)

 

P.S.I am no expert but this is what i learnt personally.

 

GL
