    brodoyouevengift got a reaction from VTSplinter in Getting Gud in One Week or Less, No Padding Required   
    I've been playing this game for a pretty long time. Back about a year ago, I was running a bit over 3000wn8. Due to it's terrible luck based mechanics, balance breaking gold ammo and power creep, and campy vision system, I generally uninstall it for months at a time before getting back into it because all of my terrible friends keep playing it.
     
    Last time I did this, I took a break for 5 months, and for the last 3 months have been sitting at 2200-2500wn8. That's not terrible, but not as good as I used to be, so clearly I was dissatisfied. Then, suddenly last week, I figured it out.
     
    I figured out how to Git Gudtm
     

     
    Now, I wouldn't be posting this if I did it in a way that I considered to be padding. No gold rounds, platoons, overpowered tanks or sniping out of viewrange at enemy tanks spotted by my allies was employed here. All I've been playing this last week was my tier 10s (T110E5, Batchat, T62a, M60) and some terrible tier 5s I'm trying to grind out 6th sense on (BDR G1B, Chi Nu, Chi Nu kai)
     
    So, what the hell did I change in one week that sent my wn8 from 2500 to 4000 to the point of doing an extra 1000 damage in the same tanks? Well besides spending too much time putting up insulation and drywall in my basement, only one thing.
     
    Picking my battles. Generally, I would choose a section of a map that I like for some reason, drive over there, run into some enemies and try to outskill them until one of us died. I did this even if I was outnumbered 3 to 1, even if they were a higher tier, even if they were in a better position, even if they were sitting there waiting for me to peek. As long as I had some chance to pen them, I would poke around that corner and take that shot or rush in and start circling them. It worked a decent amount of the time, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten a 63% winrate and purple wn8 out of it, but then I started watching streams. I saw people who (no names) played much worse than me, yet still somehow managed to be dark purple while looking like they weren't even trying. A lot of them were padders, but some weren't, and I noticed what they were doing that I wasn't, and that was that they never engaged in an unfavourable fight.
     
    They'd run into a bunch of tanks they could barely pen sitting around a corner waiting for them to try peeking, and they wouldn't peek, they would fuck off to a different part of the map until they found themselves in an engagement where they could get at least twice as much damage out as they got put back into them without even trying, instead of fighting an enemy in a great position ready for them. They would do this, and they would win that engagement. They would kill a few tanks, damage a few more, get some map control and barely lose any health doing it. Then they'd use this map control to find another area where THEY had the advantage or the surprise over the enemy, and get more easy damage out, until the first tanks in the great position that they avoided were outnumbered and surrounded, and THEN they would use all the HP they still have from not making risky trades and the numbers advantage they have to kill those tanks. It doesn't work on all maps, a lot of the maps in this game are terrible sets of 3 corridors with TDs camping both ends where nothing but chaisniping and high pen/alpha works, but with them changing a lot of those maps recently, you can pull this off more often.
     
    I started doing this, and clearly the change in stats and winrate speaks for itself. I have a few videos below to show you the difference in playstyle, both losses (I twied guies) and the "bad" playstyle against terrible pubbies that should have killed me much easier than they did, but comparing the two, you could see that I had a much easier time against much better opponents in the second video than I did in the first, despite being in a much worse position in the second video map control-wise
     

     

     
    Now in the second video I also overlaid a bunch of tips and explanations for why I did certain things but near the start one gets fucked up (the "slides" used to be 3 seconds long instead of 5, and when I changed the length they stayed on I forgot to move one over to compensate for the extra length) What that slide says is another important thing again talking about always picking favourable situations, and that is that if one side of the map only has 3 or 4 pubbies go to it, and you know that the enemy will almost definitely send a reasonable amount more, DO NOT go to that side to attempt to compensate, you will get rolled with the rest of the guys who went over there. Instead stay somewhere between your lemming train and your base, close enough to get help from allies but also in a position where you can quickly reset the cap, which will give your pubbies time to notice that they left half of the fucking map undefended and move back to base to help you
     
    Anyway I hope this helps people out, especially the more aggressive players like me. Use your aggression to move up and shoot enemies in the side and other places where they're not prepared for you or are in a bad position to fight you, don't just find the nearest enemy and try your best to kill them even if the odds are heavily stacked their way, deal with those guys last after you kill all their friends. Always get the first shot, never peek against an enemy that's ready for you and loaded unless you'll get a lot more out of it than they would. If you manage to get your tank's expected damage in before an enemy has even managed to turn their turret at you before you've disappeared, then you've done it right.

    brodoyouevengift reacted to the_bolshevik in World of Medium tanks comming?   
    I'm just returning to the game after not really playing since before the map changes.
     
    The thing that caused me to stop playing a few months ago was that with the prevalence of TD's, the game had been reduced to a few sniping lanes with big guns pointed at them. It was no longer rewarding to play scoutey meds for me, and in retrospect it was likely due to my inability to adapt to that meta.
     
    Liking it so far, and I am finding renewed joy in driving my high tier mediums. This is isn't exactly a scientific observation, but I do get a feeling that meds are stronger than they used to be. Sample size is a bit small though, as I've only played ~100 games since restarting. I have yet to explore all the maps, but my impression is that there is more terrain than before that meds can use advantageously.
     
    I also just finally ace badged my T62A!

    brodoyouevengift got a reaction from _Juris in Russian meds in the present meta: Meh with awesome at the end, or worthwhile all the way down?   
    Kv-13 is better than the T-43, but I managed an insane winrate and DPG in my T-43 (compared to my usual level of play at the time)

    It should just be worse than every other tier 7 medium tank in the game in pretty much every way, AND IT IS. But for months, every time I got into the T-43, everyone I fought would just play like they had half their brain removed, and I've never had that happen in any other tank I've owned

    Even when I rebought it a few months after I sold it and grinded through the t44, everyone on the enemy team STILL just played worse whenever I drove the piece of shit near them


    I played the A-43 on my sheriff account. Thing is like a tier 7 (or is it 6? Dont remember) batchat with an infinite drum and a cloaking device. I sat in an open field 320 meters away from a jpanther and just liberated him of 70% of his HP without him spotting me before he managed to fuck off out of my view. This is why I have optics on pretty much every tank I own >_>

    The pen is pretty shit though but the thing is fast enough that you can easily rush and circle jerk most tanks you can't pen frontally. Finding one that's alone is a bit harder though, so you'll spend most of your time off to the side shooting at people fighting other people while hidden in a bush

    Wargaming randomly changes your shell size +-25%, meaning that if you have a 100mm gun you are actually firing shells between 75mm and 125mm in size
     
    This is to promote unexpected and thereby exciting outcomes to combat

    In short, you play for yourself alone, despite this being a team game.  You may want to consider any of a number of fine single player games.  There, you can have your fun any way you wish, without detracting from the fun of others.
     
    I also find it funny that you speak of showing off fake worth to others, in a thread where you're begging others to justify your actions and decry your adversaries.  This isn't the 4th grade girls cry room, Nancy.

    In case anyone wants a recap:
     
    OP is in the 121 with camo net. Goes north (the big ridge) on Northwest. Snipes for a while. Team collapses on the other flanks. He kills a pushing KV-4, then struggles with his gun depression and spends a few minutes trying to get down the ridge and shoot an IS-3. Game is down to 3v2 at this point, him and the THUGZ guy vs T92, Foch 155, and IS-8. OP drives into enemy base and finds arty, but is too scared to take the hit and just leaves it alone. The IS-8 and Foch kill the THUGZ guy as OP caps the base. Arty comes back and hits OP for a few damage points, resetting base. Foch comes up to reset, but it's too late and OP kills it.
     
    Frumpy, you definitely didn't deserve the hate - you played exactly like I'd expect you to and theres nothing wrong with that. I do want you to know that you did make some pretty bad mistakes though, and I can definitely see how it'd frustrate a good player observing you. Here are mistakes I noticed:
     
    1. Why are you running camo net?
    2. Why are you using a manual fire extinguisher?
    3. Why are you sniping in a 121 on northwest? This is not the right tank or map to be doing so.
    4. Why don't you move when you get spotted while sniping? You just kind of sat there.
    5. Why are so scared of losing HP? You spent way too long playing footsies with a lone 100 HP IS-3, and you were way too scared of the T92.
     
    Just remember that some people are assholes, but they probably do have at least some semblance of a point. Feel free to ignore their attitude, but don't ignore the mistakes that you made.
     
    (and yes you absolutely could of helped the other guy, idk what makes you think you couldn't but im assuming its your extreme aversion to getting hit)
     
    edit: As it turns out, OP is not interested in getting better, and just plays to make the most credits and xp as he can. Forget what I said, if you play like this you have no right to complain about being insulted.

    I think it must really suck to care about win rate in a 15vs15 game.  That is the only thing I can come up with after a game with a very verbally abusive [THUGZ] player.
     
    I said nothing to these guys and was called a plethora of names, told to uninstall, even while bringing victory to my team.

    One player in particular flipped out because he somehow thought I could help him when I could not and gave me a barrage of insults for it.

    While I was capping, another player on my team actually appeared to be happy that the cap points were reset when I got hit.

    After the rager died, I went on to win the game amidst a flurry of insults from players who I later found out were obviously try-hard, stat padders, given the tanks that they play.
     
    I'm a player who plays for fun and after this I began to wonder if I would have recieved the same level of abuse for my play if XVM had portrayed me favorably.
     
    Please, wWatch the replay and tell me if I really did deserve all that verbal abuse.

It worked a decent amount of the time, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten a 63% winrate and purple wn8 out of it, but then I started watching streams. I saw people who (no names) played much worse than me, yet still somehow managed to be dark purple while looking like they weren't even trying. A lot of them were padders, but some weren't, and I noticed what they were doing that I wasn't, and that was that they never engaged in an unfavourable fight.
     
    They'd run into a bunch of tanks they could barely pen sitting around a corner waiting for them to try peeking, and they wouldn't peek, they would fuck off to a different part of the map until they found themselves in an engagement where they could get at least twice as much damage out as they got put back into them without even trying, instead of fighting an enemy in a great position ready for them. They would do this, and they would win that engagement. They would kill a few tanks, damage a few more, get some map control and barely lose any health doing it. Then they'd use this map control to find another area where THEY had the advantage or the surprise over the enemy, and get more easy damage out, until the first tanks in the great position that they avoided were outnumbered and surrounded, and THEN they would use all the HP they still have from not making risky trades and the numbers advantage they have to kill those tanks. It doesn't work on all maps, a lot of the maps in this game are terrible sets of 3 corridors with TDs camping both ends where nothing but chaisniping and high pen/alpha works, but with them changing a lot of those maps recently, you can pull this off more often.
     
    I started doing this, and clearly the change in stats and winrate speaks for itself. I have a few videos below to show you the difference in playstyle, both losses (I twied guies) and the "bad" playstyle against terrible pubbies that should have killed me much easier than they did, but comparing the two, you could see that I had a much easier time against much better opponents in the second video than I did in the first, despite being in a much worse position in the second video map control-wise
     

     

     
    Now in the second video I also overlaid a bunch of tips and explanations for why I did certain things but near the start one gets fucked up (the "slides" used to be 3 seconds long instead of 5, and when I changed the length they stayed on I forgot to move one over to compensate for the extra length) What that slide says is another important thing again talking about always picking favourable situations, and that is that if one side of the map only has 3 or 4 pubbies go to it, and you know that the enemy will almost definitely send a reasonable amount more, DO NOT go to that side to attempt to compensate, you will get rolled with the rest of the guys who went over there. Instead stay somewhere between your lemming train and your base, close enough to get help from allies but also in a position where you can quickly reset the cap, which will give your pubbies time to notice that they left half of the fucking map undefended and move back to base to help you
     
    Anyway I hope this helps people out, especially the more aggressive players like me. Use your aggression to move up and shoot enemies in the side and other places where they're not prepared for you or are in a bad position to fight you, don't just find the nearest enemy and try your best to kill them even if the odds are heavily stacked their way, deal with those guys last after you kill all their friends. Always get the first shot, never peek against an enemy that's ready for you and loaded unless you'll get a lot more out of it than they would. If you manage to get your tank's expected damage in before an enemy has even managed to turn their turret at you before you've disappeared, then you've done it right.

    Didn't check past the first page to see if this was done before because you're not my real dad and you can't tell me what to do!
     
    But anyway, this is the place to post pictures of teams that just refused to be carried. Sometimes, the play4fun is just too strong.
     

     
    Here is my most recent example
    In this case, I clearly didn't want that x3 anyway

    brodoyouevengift got a reaction from theUub in Getting Gud in One Week or Less, No Padding Required   
    I've been playing this game for a pretty long time. Back about a year ago, I was running a bit over 3000wn8. Due to it's terrible luck based mechanics, balance breaking gold ammo and power creep, and campy vision system, I generally uninstall it for months at a time before getting back into it because all of my terrible friends keep playing it.
     
    Last time I did this, I took a break for 5 months, and for the last 3 months have been sitting at 2200-2500wn8. That's not terrible, but not as good as I used to be, so clearly I was dissatisfied. Then, suddenly last week, I figured it out.
     
    I figured out how to Git Gudtm
     

     
    Now, I wouldn't be posting this if I did it in a way that I considered to be padding. No gold rounds, platoons, overpowered tanks or sniping out of viewrange at enemy tanks spotted by my allies was employed here. All I've been playing this last week was my tier 10s (T110E5, Batchat, T62a, M60) and some terrible tier 5s I'm trying to grind out 6th sense on (BDR G1B, Chi Nu, Chi Nu kai)
     
    So, what the hell did I change in one week that sent my wn8 from 2500 to 4000 to the point of doing an extra 1000 damage in the same tanks? Well besides spending too much time putting up insulation and drywall in my basement, only one thing.
     
    Picking my battles. Generally, I would choose a section of a map that I like for some reason, drive over there, run into some enemies and try to outskill them until one of us died. I did this even if I was outnumbered 3 to 1, even if they were a higher tier, even if they were in a better position, even if they were sitting there waiting for me to peek. As long as I had some chance to pen them, I would poke around that corner and take that shot or rush in and start circling them.
