Ok, so I'm getting to this point where my Last 1K swings between 3250 and 3400, but there seems to be a sort of a glass ceiling for me at the moment. I'm just wondering, maybe superunicums have some tips to share that would give me a chance to reach for the next level. About my playstyle: I play mainly meds, mostly Type 59 for making money and training myself to play more tactically (Type 59 is relatively slow moving and slow aiming, you have to be calm and make good decisions to play it effectively), + some T10 meds (STB-1 is a recent favourite). I play solo a lot as I feel it helps me become a stronger player with more carry power. I'm quite aggressive, in many maps I try to rush to the position where I can spot at least that flank's enemy tanks so I know what I'm dealing with. Often I'm the first one to initiate pushes. This can and does backfire at times. My relatively low survival % reflects this (44% for the Last 1K games). My WN8 is already a bit higher than my WR, proportionally. I'm feel there's not much leeway left without intentionally sacrificing WR% for WN8. As many unica, my WN8 is much higher with light tanks, but I often don't like to play them because of the decrease in carry power compared to meds. Basically, my WR% suffers. I use prem rounds as much as the next guy, meaning only when they are called for or at the end of the game where it might come down to 1-2 penetrations. If necessary, I can upload some replays later. The best can be seen here, but they're hardly representative: http://wotreplays.com/uploader/erickHV/id/290255 Thanks a lot for your input and taking the time!
With around 7k battles under my belt, I'm slowly moving up the tiers. My most played tank (VK 3601) has 330 some battles in it. I've got another 6 tanks with between 200 and 300 battles. Ignoring one outlier (SU-26 from the good old days) only 2 of my top 12 most played tanks are HTs (one of which used to be a medium). The rest are mediums or TDs. I have 6 tier VIII tanks (in order by battles): Type 59, T34, Tiger II, IS-3, KV-4, Ferdi. My stats in most of those aren't great - but at some point, I'm going to need to move to tier IX. Should I push up a medium line? A TD line? Continue with heavies? Should I drop my focus back to tier VII and try and get better there? From what I've read and seen, tier VII mediums are pretty universally meh. Should I plow through the mediums as quick as possible or spend more time at that tier? Should I push into tier VII Yankee TDs? I've heard they are fairly meh as well, and certainly will feel so after the T49/Jackson. (Yes, I know I need to get a Hellcat. It's on the list) I feel like a generalist more than a specialist; and I think my stats and ADHD tank grinding reflects that. Should I start to specialize? Will that help me push past this plateau I'm seeing in my play? I know it's a tonne of questions... just looking for input based on my stats and what's worked for other people.
