Do you guys feel like you have "cursed" tanks? Like no matter how well you play in them your win rate is just terrible?

 

My IS-7 WR is at around 42% after 120 ish so games and I just cant get the WR up.

Sometime it changes, but there are some cursed tanks for me, either that or some tanks have bad MM...

Wait a sec.

Are you by any chance using the Kursk camo/style on that one?

TVP 50/51, Obj. 430U. Both tanks are good, but its just nightmare for me to play them cause its almost sure i lose... :/ With 430U there is a full unluckyness, full pen from arty, cant hit anything, fire, ammo explosion, etc. I hate the thing. Loved the tier 9 though. Already considering buying back the t9 430 and putting in it the 430u crew....

Strv 74 for me. 88 battles, Ace tanker, 1st MOE, in top 100 for the tank, 1250 WN8...... 40.91% win rate! I'll come back to it later because with those stats it doesn't deserve a 41% win rate.

My IS-7 and Foch 155. These two just breed losses every time I play them. 45% in total between both of them. Yet I'm skimming a 70% WR in my 430U.

 

50% in my Skorpion G is kinda low bizarrely enough yet I've two marked it.:amazed:

My Maus, while I love it a wr of 42% might not be the biggest of help to my team and then my FCM 50t, oh boy that thing got an impressive wr 34%, I absolutely hate that tank.

On the other side my E 75 is a complete opposite for some reason, the only tank I've managed to mark that isn't a KV-2 and the only tank I've managed to ace twice. I just seem to do really well in the E 75 for some reason, I don't complain though, it looks like a beasty King Tiger and I love it!

just to make you feel better: "cursed" tanks are not just your feeling but actually a statistical phenomenon. if you have enough different tanks in your garage then statistics say that a certain percentile of those is expected to have a higher WR then what could be expected from you - i.e. "blessed" tanks accumulating lucky streaks - while another precentile will suffer the opposite: the "curse" of losing streaks. and yeah, "blessed" and "cursed" tanks will correlate with OP and UP-ness of tanks although it is possible that a powerful tanks will be cursed albeit less likely. but there is good news: on the very long run curses and blesses average out and WR of all your tanks will eventually converge to a number representing how well you play them.

 

my most cursed tank is currently the Czechoslovakian TVP VTU standing at 45% after 300 battles - i remember i had something below(!) 30% (27%?) after 100+ battles and the number of battles thereafter is a result of trying to undo the curse. i have calculated how long it'll take me to average this one out until it's in the greens (50%+ WR) with 90% confidence... and oh boy it'll be a life long project - which is really depressing :(.

 

i wish we could just delete/reset statistics of certain tanks for good. that'll give us a tool to deal with this and also make grinding stock tanks less of a stats killer for free2play players (which is also a discouraging factor for new player i guess). i have written to support once to do that and at first they of course misunderstood and wanted to reset my entire account. but then they started reading my request and told me that they would like to but don't have the means to do it... but i guess if they get enough tickets of this kind WG might actually implement it.

I've got plenty!

 

 

Why do I think this happens..?

Honestly, really no clue. Just plain bad luck or something.

Hey, at least you managed to ace most of them, something which I am still struggling with my "blessed" tanks.

For me the most cursed tank with terrible teams has to be obj 260, no matter how i play i barely got past 50%. Even though i always push a flank with it and win it, while dealing 3,5dpg the rest of team somehow pretty much always fails, so it really depends on how much HP i still have left for trading at the endgame. Simmilar story with obj 277.
