  1. You know that vague concept where they tell you about growth etc? Found a perfect way to measure it, for myself: instead of raging at the game and it's core mechanics like rng, I nowadays rage at myself for playing like shit. It is not less depressing but atleast I get to feel that rage infused euphoria every so often.

      That is the best attitude. You certainly won't improve by raging at some random who didn't do what you hoped or expected. I try to keep your perspective, but it can be hard.

      It wasn't just a couple of games, it was like a week long streak of me playing bad. It was an unholy combination of stock tanks and being bad (rng didn't help). Every single tank I started to grind about a week ago have now sub 50% winrate. With Pantera p44 it's something like 35%... and my recent winrate is barely over 50%.  It will get better, just need to get myself back to the level I was in 2017 and keep doing less stupid shit. 

  2. I bought this tank recentley and I'm ready to ragesell the tank and commit sudoku. How are you supposed to play this thing? This tank doesn't seem to have anything workable, except when you get lucky being top tier and facing tier 7's. Granted, I only got the suspension unlocked. Does this tank get any better once "fully upgraded"? The gun is shit. Low pen, shots go everywhere between moon and a black hole, skill-ammo pen is bad, HE is bad. Armor, well it does work sometimes but mostly I feel I am just 2000hp's worth of xp to enemy. Most of the time I am either too slow to join up the fight and everyone is D E D or I am too slow to join the fight and I get zerged. I don't have that many games yet and every single city map has evaded me this far, unlike all those open maps with no cover and zooming ferraris and 3 redliners. Should I just go full HE spam and atleast hope for some damage / go for tracking shots and hope for assist damage? I Can't fight most heavies I face frontally since my gun feels so horrible I cant hit weakspots nor do I have enough pen to penetrate them. I am currently at 17 games and DPG is 1059. AUE ratio is 0.87. I have better dpg in my old tier 8 (current tier 9 light tanks with almost zero games played after update) light tanks than Type4.
  3. Don't mind me joining in.. I reinstalled the game after 3 year hiatus. Got way too much useless but must-be-present zoom-meetings for school so I decided might aswell do something "fun" while at it. Been playing for like 2 weeks now. This has been quite a shock: Maps have changed, a lot. Of course I went full siema like the game was 2016 and found stuff that wasn't there, died. GG. New maps so I just drive around and see where you die faster and where you die not-so-fast. Also, the game feels like it's become a campfest. Really passive playing. Not one or two times I've seen top tiers camping Murovanka forest hugging the redline. Guess who went head first there, encountered a lone t-54 and was like "man this guy is feeding, I got my... wait, where is my team?"... New tanks and old ones rebalance. This just takes time. Those "new" prems during 3 year hiatus are annoying but dealable. Wish I had some of those though. Equipment 2.0, I actually like this but don't have credits to start buying all the stuff I want to try. This sites thread about eq2.0 has been really helpful. In the end, I play bad now. Most of the time I am just like "man I am stupid, why did I do this and that". I actually noticed that when I am doind wn8-wise well, I tend to have shitty wr. Like sub 40%. And when my wn8 is not that good, wr jumps to 60+%.
  4. Hello everyone. I don't want to turn this into a long story so I will try to keep this short. My improvement has been steady for a long while but I've hit a wall. I can't seem to play on a consistent level. It is either a really good game or a total failure. There seems to be no middle road. So I begun to search for all kind of sources for improvement and found this site. My biggest downfall right now seems to be my newly aquired tier 10's. Yeah, I got my first tier 10 after 15k battles. Never felt the need to play cw's and didn't feel I'd be ready to carry my weight earlier so I just postponed it. Now that I have gotten few, I suck. Badly. Most tier 9's I play I am doing at least moderately well, even if I am grinding a stock tank. But no, not with tier 10 tanks. Most of the time I realize that I am playing like an ass with T10, not retreating when I should or just general derping. But still I tend to repeat the same mistakes. Stubbornness of the soul or stupidity of the mind, I don't know but it is annoying. First class shamefur dispray. I want to get my game to a consistent level. It doesn't have to be godlike but I feel like a woman with weight jojoing. TLDR: I want to improve so I joined this site. Hi all and stuff like that.
