  1. I occasionally get flak for 'camping'. Yesterday, I got into a heated argument, during and after the game, with a medium Brit tank in a tier III affair on Rockfields. I was partly to blame. I, driving a Valentine AT, headed for my favourite opening spot only to find this guy there. Although there was room for both of us, I upbraided him brusquely and told him in no uncertain terms to bugger off and fight. Which, amazingly, he did, albeit nursing a grudge. The badinage continued until the end of the game and, as I say, afterwards. I had a cast-iron case: four kills and ending up i
  2. I have come a long way from being a red shitter where now I'm getting teal recents. If you stream I have probably bugged you in your stream at some point about getting better xD. Starting to always 1 mark tanks and now am up to 4 "2 marked" tanks I had some of the best game I have ever had today, but I felt like I fucked up alot in them and would like to learn what to do better. If anyone could review one of the games and give me tips i would appreciate it alot. Always trying to improve but i just don't have a unicums view or thought process on what i could of done better Thanks for the help
  3. Hey everyone. I'm assuming quite a few people here kinda know me, or at least have seen me around before. I've been messing around on this forums since April??? I think, and have loved every second of it. You guys are all such a great community, and have been so encouraging to me. I recently just hit unicum recent, and I would like to thank everyone here for the advice and support you have given me. the road from 2k recent to unicum has been tough, as it has a required a big shift in thinking, as i try to seek ways to outplay my opponents and win the match. The advice you guys have g
  4. So I'm a "decent" player who hasn't had great luck with clans. My first clan, KIMBO, would up disbanding due to internal politics, and my last clan, NAG, promised constant improvement and competitive battles but stagnated in a similar manner. I really just want a place where I can log onto the TS and it's full of skilled people who have a good time playing the game. If there is a clan out there that would take in someone with minor calling experience and a wide variety of tanks, then send a PM and I'd love to hop on and play some games with ya. WL signature placed below for reference.
  5. Hello purple squad, just wanted to ask you if mods will help me to improve? You can also write what mods are you using and which mods I should have. Thanks Tesarpaul the green pleb
  6. When I first joined this forum a few months ago I was pretty terrible at this game, a proud citizen of tomatotown. Since then, by getting more experience and by reading the advice of the purples here, I managed to find my way up to green overall and dark green recent wn8, and recent wr% that fluctuates between dark green and light blue (52-55%). But I feel like I'm starting to get stuck and level-off. Lately, I've been really struggling to have days that are better than my recent wn8, and I've had about 1400 for over a month now. For the first time since coming here, I'm failing to actuall
  7. Hey All, This is a replay of T110E4 game I had on Stalingrad. It is not a good game. Please review for feedback. I would like to lead in with what I was thinking. We were pushing the 1-2 from North to south. The T110E4 is not the best front line tank and with its longish reload time is not a good brawler. The tanks with me seemed tentative to move for so I was moving up a little faster compared to what is probably a good. We spotted some reds and started moving up. The IS-7 pushed up into a box of three buildings and ran into a t-30 who we knew was there a Waffle 100 and a 103. I moved up t
  8. First off a huge thank you to the mentors that have worked with me in the past. Without you I would still be below 300. I am currently grinding the T-34-85. Overall I am around 400 w8 w/ 10K battles avg damage is around 300ish. Roughly 50% of my hits don't do damage/pen and my survival rate is around 26%. I don't yolo and play solo most of the time. I cannot afford a prem account. Fps is good 40-60 fps but I suffer from lag spikes with an avg ping in the 120s+. Can't follow streams due to only getting 3-5 seconds at a time before buffering for 2-4 min. I have little to no confidence in m
  9. Hi all, This is my first post on the forums so please excuse me if I have been a bit of a noob about it. So as a bad/average player (link to stats- http://wotlabs.net/na/player/Tiny_Teddy ) who is trying to improve I have a question about how mods will affect my improvement. In particular I have been using Sela's modpack with Deegie's sight. One of the features of this sight is that it shows arrows to tanks outside of the field of view (behind you etc.) with a colour code of green for tanks which have no shots on you and red for tanks which have a clear shot on you. After the recent 9.
  10. UPDATE 19th of March: UPDATE 25th FEB: I will not take any more students for the time being. I already have more than enough so it is hard for me to give everyone the attention that they deserve. I thought I would start up this new sub-forum by offering my mentorship to anyone on the EU server. I already have a replay review center where I review replays from anyone, so if you are only interested in feedback on particular games I suggest you head over there instead. This thread is for longer mentorships than just a few replays. WaterWar's replay review center: What you ca
  11. Hello! Update 6/17: I will get this done before I leave for summer break the 1st of july. After reading Kewei's article on how to get better at World Of Tanks i have decided to play 1000 games in the T-62A to see what kind of improvement I get. At the moment I have stagnated and am sort of lacking focus on what I want to do and I find that chasing new tanks all the time is increasingly frustrating. So with a background of having watched emu87 doing solopub play in tier 10 and thinking it might work as a educational journey for lesser players as well I will be doing this. I have a
  12. The goal of this post is to share what I have learned since I started playing WOT, and the factors that I think were most responsible for my improvement. While my stats don’t reflect it yet, I have reached the point where I can consistently average 2500-3000 WN8 in a session, provided I follow the method outlined below. When I play on Wi-Fi or when tired or distracted, things don’t go as well. For my first 8000 battles or so, I learned primarily through trial and error. For example, no one told me how to go “Hull down”… I learned it the hard way. I don’t recommend that method of learning t
  13. Greetings from the exotic SEA server, where English seems to be an elusive language in every battle. I haven't posted here much but I would like to offer my humble opinion on some tactics that helped me transcend light green into teal. Now, I know this isn't new info and my play is a work in progress, seeing that purple is still out of my reach. But hopefully, this post can help those who are still struggling to break the dark green ceiling. Scrubby play: Ridge fighting in a Centurion 7/1. Poke, aim for 5s to hit exact weak spot, then fire and miss anyway. Take damage from enemies
  14. As shown by my signature, i am a bog standard world of tanks pubbie player. I would like to increase at least to the mid 50%s in terms of Winrate. I watch alot of vids, from QB and the like, and i understand the game mechanics. I am doing my best to improve, and i would appreciate any suggestions on improving my statistics. PS, what is a good baseline for a "decent" player, in terms of WN8? I run xvm in game and would like to be able to discriminate the good, the bad, and the ugly using the team statistics.
  15. So it was suggested that I add a few recent replays to get some feedback, criticism, and perhaps have an epiphany in regards to my skill progression. I have a lot of theories about why I am playing this bad... I was in weeks past blaming bad days, bad tanks, bad teams... But I realize its not that... And its really become apparent to me that I am doing well in losses and poorly in wins. And quite often putting myself into really bad positions in hopes of making a difference in a game. I feel like I am bouncing back and forth between being way too campy and passive, and being way too ag
  16. Whatsup guys I am new to the forums and the website and whatnot but not new to the game although my improvements are. I started off as major alpha scrub and now I am just a minor bravo scrub and my recent makes me a..... a..... still a noob. I try. But anyways, HELLO! I am here. I read how2poast n stuff. and I am just dropping in to say hi. I have 5k and a few battles and my username is GuySenseiRocks. I hope to see you all random battling and fighting the war on nerfs and baddies like meself. Good to be here and have fun.
  17. So like many of you, I've been reading the recent great interest and also, like many of you (despite egos, personalities, etc) I find it a real treat to have front row seats to a *discussion* between people who are excellent at something where they speak to/argue/articulate the fine points of the game at all levels, or even just define what makes a truly top-tier player. In this, Garbad does bring out some of the Lombardi aspect of "WIN". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjYeREIHCsw This coincides with a short, great interview recently in the NYTimes with Kevin Tracey on some of the
  18. So, I've finally made it to a 50% overall winrate, and I would like to thank you all here for helping, advising, carrying, and not kicking me for being a complete shitposter. I would really like to, in particular, give my thanks to: Never, for creating this awesome community rocketbrainsurgeon, for posting the extremely informative guides everyone who's willing to platoon with me in the Wotlabs channel, for putting up with my potato gameplay I hope to improve further over time, and look forward to becoming a purple!
  19. Heya, I'm trying to improve my skill level in WoT, I want to learn to play better, past the 2400 WN8. Recently I have not been doing so well, averaging 2000 WN8 for a day for about 3 weeks now and my overall dropped from 2600. I want to learn to play past these limits, not just WN8 wise. I want to be able to be more critical on the battlefield, be able to carry teams most of the matches if not all of them. I tried to read map guides and tank guides but it only took me so far. I would like if anyone would be interested in helping me improve as a WoT tanker, (my writing skills suck). If you are
  20. Hey guys, I'm still relatively new to this game but have managed to get on the fast track to good@tonks through my buddy Brutal_Cupcake (who is a much better player than me). However, Brutal doesn't really "try" to be good@tonks, I don't think, he just is. I'm not like that, everything to me is a formula, an algorithm, data, etc. and this has all accumulated over time to give me a relatively good grasp of the game, but I have to really try at it. Usually I do pretty well solopubbing (I play quite a bit solo), but this week was different. I was doing TERRIBLE. I wasn't getting good winrates
  21. What a great Monday! My first foray into 52% and a >1200! Thanks solely to this website and the tankers that frequent it; your interactions, guidance, vids, and replays have shown me a whole different WOT world. Primary thanks from me goes to Allurai and his domination within the T49, which inspired me to watch a TON 'o T49 vids/replays. By paying attention to the tools that the T49 offers you, I have learned to really pay attention to camo/draw/view. That TD has paid dividends to me in all my matches. My monkey and his football thank you all! <--------------------------
  22. So after my worst session pretty much ever last night, barely breaking 1k WN7 over 12+ games i had a bit of an epiphany. Im not nearly as good as think i can be. Thing is, i want to continue to raise my WN7 every day. I have been getting close to blue forever now and want to push into it. but you know what? I AM NOT FUCKING LEARNING ANYTHING! I am stuck in a "stats trap" of being so afraid and frustrated when i don't hit what i feel should be my minimum stats for the night. 2k WN7 and 60% is what i EXPECT myself to do. Often i do better, sometimes i do worse... or much worse...
  23. Hi everyone- really trying to improve here so I thought I'd post two of my replays that in general, probably reflect my play for better or worse. Any thoughts and criticisms would be incredibly helpful. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/CrazyHeinz http://wotreplays.com/site/352705#steppes-crazyheinz-t29 http://wotreplays.com/site/352677#tundra-crazyheinz-vk_4502_p_ausf_b My thoughts are I generally leave myself to multiple lines of fire (crossfire) and that I get too aggressive and put myself in untenable positions. Thanks! -Crazy.
