    If you find yourself in a game like that (generally you can tell based upon your teams deployment, etc) in my opinion you're better off to sit back and chai snipe as your team is getting absolutely fucked. I've turned games around by doing that, tracking a heavy when he comes around the corner so even the shitters can right click + left click him.
    And if you don't win the game, at least your WN8 won't look shitty.

    The thing that you can't forget is that the difference between 2k WN8 and 2500 WN8 at high tiers is fucking nothing - normally its one, maybe two shots of damage depending on the tank.
    Just make sure that you stop missing those couple shots each game, and your WN8 will benefit.

    At this point, you know the generally good spots for each of the maps and types of tanks.  One of the next steps is to work out WHY those spots are good for those tanks, and under what conditions.  Once you have done this, you will be able to start to understand when to modify those initial strategies based on what tanks your team has and what tanks the enemy team has.  This is one of the biggest mistakes that beginner and especially intermediate players make - they learn a reasonable set of opening moves, but then never develop beyond them.  Start by always ask yourself why something works.
    Also, it may be that you already do this to some extent, but try to get a feel for the rhythm of matches - I think this is what @zapyoug is referring to as the unicum shuffle.  Start getting a feel for when you've gone dark and when it's okay to poke again, and get out of the habit of sitting still no matter where you are (unless you're deliberately hiding and trying to maintain camo - then don't shuffle).
    I also strongly second @zapyoug's suggestion to try new things and see what happens.  This, combined with my first point, will let you start expanding your meta-knowledge.

    -better optimized positioning
    -better map awareness and knowledge of what to do in each situation
    -pubbie unicum shuffle
    are what come to mind as things to go for
    above all else though, don't be afraid to try new things even at the costs of stats. Never hard yolo'd the middle of lakeville in a heavy? try it. Never brought your batchat city in ruinberg? do it. If they go horribly wrong you can learn from the mistake. If it goes right you can see what made it work and what didn't.
