Im slowly but surely trying to break my comfort zone and get into Tier 10 battles more often but it's proving to be a very difficult and tough feat..... Im getting annoyed with the amount of constant full T10 MM i get which feels like a sudden drop into the deep end, as if im a new player back at Tier 1 or something and very rarely see any Tier 8 or 9 games but if i play Tier 8 or 9, i see T10 more often than not and it's frustrating because i just don't know what to do.

 

It's not like im a rubbish player either, im reasonably decent (blue player according to WoTLabs which is the main site i use measurement) and absolutely adore Tier 9, so it's darn close to T10 but when i play it, brain shuts off..... I'm in a competitive clan and do well in the battles with them at that tier which is great fun but Randoms, i just struggle and lose patience a lot more quicker than what i do in other Tiers and don't know what or why that is?

 

Is anyone here willing to share some advice or encouragement to help me get through, maybe some strategies or ideas on mindset to make me feel more relaxed and calm because i think that's what it might be, plus i get a little stat anxious because i know i'm rubbish at that Tier but same time i want to improve it and so there is only one way to do that and its by playing, maybe i'm thinking to much into it or trying too hard to do the impossible?, god knows but what i do know is i want to learn and improve.

 

I am fully aware that most games i have played at that level i am about 50-75% maybe more being my fault for bad plays, i do my best to look at myself to blame and not others but that's not enough because i don't feel myself getting anything from doing it, such as what i could of done better because brain just dies on me.

 

Thanks in advance for any help given and this is the first step into getting better and improving at the game which is something i take into account greatly, just need that little encouragement to help me get past the hard points and break through my current threshold :)

My experience with t10  is almost all are loading gold and just spamming it, doesn't matter if they are shooting at leopard or is7, just load the gold even in Arty, that's why I hate t10 batlles

This is one of my struggles with it too along with no grinding..... I enjoy grinding tanks and because there is none of that at T10, it just feels meh, like no incentive to continue playing at that level but i want to, just need something to keep me interested but god knows what that something is :/

"Grind" your average damage, average base xp or winrate figures?  Not the same as unlockign module but may trick that part of your brain.

 

I recently got some tier 10's just for cw / advances and though I've only had a handful of games they were far from the the endgame joy I was hoping for, with a hefty credit cost to boot.  I did however like playing grand battles again.

I wouldn't stress about it much, tier 10 is a shitshow for quite some time Sly.

Sounds like a good idea, i shall have to try that or another thought a friend said is to aim for 100 battles per tier 10 tank, both are great though, thx :)

Sly arty at tier 10 can be rather good especially GBs, give it go.

Although i have CGC (Clan Purposes) and the US Tier 10 researched but not purchased, I would rather not play Arty as a way to learn at that level as sitting at the back gives you little to nothing in ways of improving ;)

This is off topic, but it kinda feels good to see that even veteran players struggle in tier 10. Im still pretty green and did some tier 10 battles, because i really enjoy those tier 10 tanks i have. A week ago i decied to accept the fact, tier 10 is LIGHTYEARS above my skill. My self esteem took a major hit :)

i played t10 alot,latley,mostly t10s, due to missions for 279lel and so,,and honestly, its not worth it.
This is prolly the only game where  endgame content is horrible,
3 artas are almost in every match and 2 3 ebrs, also games with 5+ lights also common.
My winrate droped ALOT since i started doing t10 tanks(mainly for missions)
U cant push ,u make any plays, u get cought u die in 2 3 seconds,u make mistake to go on wrong flank or ur to slow to return yeah,ur doomed.
Also u play heavy, prepare to be stunned 80% of the match, u play ruski tank or chief? prepare to have dead driver and commander and/or gunner too
from all the HE spamming 60tps ,e100s and e3s...

Also too many newer players are there too,,, 2 3 4 5 k battle people, come to tier 10, get scared,dont know how to use their tank, so u end up camping.
705 or e100 dying to arty because they dotn wanna move out of their cubbyhole, because they had good match there in their t3 tank,and stay there artied.
And play witha  goal,i made a gola to get all my tier 10s above 51%winrate,then ill go to do 2,5k on every tank,its just for myself,my goals, my reasining,once im done with personal missions.

But all in all, tier 10 is endgame,and it should be,,best tanks, best aims, best guns(lolgerman accuracy is a meme)
Prepare yourself for wither 15-3 games or draws,,
Most important of all is to feel comfortable playing them and to have fun,dont play t10 and dont force yourself(like me) if u dont like it 
Also meta tanks,are not so meta, i mean i get focused in my ,,meta tanks,, alot,, specialy chief,,, uu gotta kill čif blyat,, get yoloed,focused by arty, entire game,literaly entire game untill u die,or win.

Play whatever u want and u like,(no arta pls,we allready have nuff of them,,unless u hunt other arties with your,then ur forgiven.

And well if u dont like it or its not your cup of tea, go back ti  7 8 9 and just have fun (=
