Sword_of_the_Grim_Reaper

I know the Grim Reaper carries a scythe instead of a sword but...

Recommended Posts

...think about it for a moment.  Why would he limit himself to old farm equipment?  Besides "Depleted Uranium Shell of the Grim Reaper," Thermonuclear device of the Grim Reaper" or "Scythe of the Grim Reaper" would not fit in the allotted space.

 

I have been playing WOT since November 2013 and am in the clan Dad's Hideout (DHO-X).  for the first 1500 games, or so, my son and I played for fun.  "Ewwwww, I scored two hits and did 250 points of damage before dying," or "Wow, you killed one," was spoken in all seriousness and pride. 

 

When I hit Tier 7 some of WOT's "Finest" were kind enough to offer me advice by calling out in team chat "Fail Platoon, why bother," or "Uninstall NOW".  Some even wanted to help me so badly the would send me private messages, following some of my best game play, to explain why my very existence on the planet was an embarrassment to humanity and why I should remedy the situation immediately.

 

This is when I discovered XVM and MOD's in general.  To sum it up....I sucked.  In fact I sucked so bad I really had to work at it to get any worse.  I don't know the exact Wn8 because I first used Wn6 and it was a 39.  When I switched to Wn8 I was in the low 200's.  I sought some advice from the "Community Mentor Program" on the WOT Official Forums and was kindly told to do more damage than my own hit points, preferably 1.5x to 3x my hit points was a good goal.  I was also told to destroy more tanks than I am destroyed.  This has been my goal and over the past 2500 games, or so.  Over the weekend I finally hit the 900's and am finally not dark red, red or orange.  When I look at my last 60 days I'm consistently in the 1100-1200 Wn8 area and I'm not sure how to improve from here.  It has been suggested by my several of the "good" players in my clan that I should now focus on surviving more battles while increasing damage dealt.  Currently I'm a 31% survivor and I know this should improve.  Suggestions on HOW to actually do this would be helpful since, in many Pub games...well you all know.

 

In summary, I would like to be a much better player and am open to suggestions (exluding, UNINSTALL) and will take critiques in stride.  Thanks for having me.

 

I hope this wasn't to long winded and by an way considered a "Shitpost" because, I would hate to receive this label following my first post.

Welcome, I guess.

Anyway

If we don't have 500 articles and topics on various subject in which you can improve we have nothing.

So get on reading! :D

Grim Reaper is mythical creature with belief that it is harvester of soul. That is why it often show with Scythe, because Scythe is what farmer use to harvest wheat, and so.

 

 

either way, welcome to WoTlab

Just looking at the kind of tanks you are playing ... stop playing TDs and Arti for a while. TDs, while favored by the current meta game and to some degree WN-Rating, will teach you "nothing" , just sitting back, being passive, point and click.

 

Start to learn driving tanks ... and I mean real tanks.

You must have had much less battles than I had for the duration of my suckiness period.  I'm still trying to pull my Wn8 out of the hole, but its getting there.  I think I will see a glimpse of blue in my sig soon....

Anyways, welcome to Wotlabs.  You will have plenty of reading to do, I promise.

Other than the fact that I love your name and your explanation for it, welcome to Wotlabs!

Hola senor.

I do have a dislike for people that legitimately hate people looking for help and have bad stats. While I am one of the worst for pubbie rage, as long as any player is willing to learn, or is improving I don't think anyone will have a problem with you on this forum.

Feel free to upload replays and ask for them to be analyzed for help. I won't be doing that because I suck, but ^^^ (Onee) might, a bunch of others will if you ask:

Sela (cutie), Rexxie, like I said Onee, Servios if you can catch him on, Carbonward, SR360, to name a few.

Thank you all for the welcome. 

 

Folterknecht - I will take your advice.  In fact I started down the T-62a line last night.  It will definitely be hard to slow down on the TD's but what you say makes sense.  Thank you.

 

ShftyMagoo - Thank you for the info on the maps.  I printed them to share with my son during game play.  He is also trying to improve but he was on a crappy computer up until a month ago.  I mean really crappy....8 FPS is great kind of crappy.  So far he's come up from in the double digits and is now a 388, since I got him a new computer.  Hopefully, he'll be in the yellows soon.  Thank you.

 

Migizikody - By ridiculous do you mean too low?  I have to admit, they told me 3x the highest HP tank on your team.  My first impression was "Holy Smokes...how am I supposed to get 6600 damage every game" (2200 HP for many heavies x 3).  Then I started looking at results for the "good" players (greens and up) and saw that 1.5x - 2x is pretty normal.  Sure, every once in a while, I see someone have a killer game but that is very rare and usually from a WT E-100 or another TD.  Thank you!

 

Lunaughty - Gulp.  Upload a game or even games.  That will take some courage.  :smallsmile:  However, I'm sure it would be an education.  I will definitely look into doing this.  Thank you.

 

Oneechan & AwesomeMedic - Thank you!  I definitely have plenty to read!

 

Thanks again for the welcome and I look forward to learning from everyone!  Oh and improving my game.... :thumbup:

Nobody can regularly manage 3 times his health in any tank

For high tiers, x1.8-2 is doable if you're extremely good

In low tiers, tanks like the Hellcat can do x3 however if you put a lot of effort into it
