Roughly how many battles did it take you guys to get an overall above 50% winrate?

 

That is overall, not vehicle specific.

 

 

Just out of interest.

The 1st one.  This is daft q, as you get better your wr will follow then falt line until such time you get better again  - the more games you had when poop the longer this will take, if you are really bothered about such things start a new account

The suggestion you make (as far as I'm concerned) is that a 50% WR is something that you aspire to when you get a grip of the game. 

 

Unfortunately, the easiest time to gain a 50% or greater WR is the early days. Win your first battle and you have 100% win rate. Lose your second battle and you will have 50% WR. Win your next and its 66%, then 50% then 60% and so on.

 

It's very easy to keep 50% or over simply by keeping one game ahead.

 

By the time you get to 10,000 battles with even 49% win rate then you've lost 200 more battles than you've won and clearly it becomes much more of a chore to turn it around.

 

If you win, say, 60% of your games from then on, it will take another 1,000 battles to reach 50%. 

 

As far as I recall, I have NEVER had an overall negative win rate unless I lost a couple more battles than I won in my first few days. I've had plenty of bad tanks, but I've ditched those at the end of the grind and moved on.

 

My current stats put me at 21,107 wins and 19,042 lost/drawn. The difference is 2065 battles. It would take a fair few really bad days to drop to 50%.

One......:B

 

I went up the British line, stuck at tier three for hundreds of games, never looked back. By the time I went back to tier one in other countries I had don't think my overall ever dropped below 50% at all.

 

If you go on Wotlabs and hover over your winrate it tells you how many games to raise it.

One.

 

After that it went downhill but as far as I remember it always stayed over 50% overall.

 

But I did come into the live game with lots of knowledge gained from playing the beta.

Actually never really paid much attention to my stats and win rate for a long time when I started playing.

First time I actually started looking at my stats, I was already above 50%...

I was at 46.75% ant 1200 battles, and reached 50% at around 6200 battles. Tier 8 is the first tier that I am unable to reach 50%.

Maybe 1000?

 

I remember hearing about this WN7 thing back in the day and having 53% winrate back then, at around 3k games.

I know this sounds dull but you should find you get better in the tanks you enjoy the most, you play them more often and will/Should learn their strengths and weaknesses.   After a large number it is harder to shift that % hence people re-roll or open new accounts just for their stats to look better.  at over 40K battles it takes a LOT of wins for me to improve 1% in any stat.  I found that listening to the "git gud" brigade and asking some of them genuinely "how"  they will actually advise you.  Once you know that "you" are the problem, and I know you don't have an issue admitting that, then that is the starting path I found.

I expect my WR to hit 50% around the same time my battle count hits 100k, or my boss gives me my loooong-overdue and well-deserved raise. 

Whichever comes first.
