Hi

Even with the amount of battles under my belt that I have, I am a Noob.

This is because I used to rush in and get destroyed early trying to earn credits.

Since joining this forum I have realised that credit earning is not the be all and end of all things WOTB.

So, I have started the mammoth task of getting my overall win rate over 50%, my hit rate up to 80% and try getting better at gaining Mastery. I have #1, #2 and three regularly now. I have had Ace on a few tanks but am concentrating on a smaller garage now.

So, once again, Hi I'm a noob but I'm rapidly learning the tactics needed to succeed. Have some patience please I may still noob out once in a while lol.

Everyone started out as a Noob, just taking me longer to grow up :)

+1 Really nice to see that you have found new chapter and I promise you will enjoy this game much more when you go deeper to details and learn all basic things and then later those special ones which will eventually improve your stats (nothing is impossible). I bet you have now different view when you get good players in your team from which you can learn but which can carry games with you when you play as a team. I also suggest platooning because it really is game changer at low tiers. High tiers you are facing tough platooned opponents every now and then so it doesn't help so much there. Tiers 1 - 6 platooning helps most. Now when you are focusing on certain tanks, my advice is not to change tank type too often. Play something like 50 to 100 games heavies and then 50 to 100 games mediums. What I am meaning is not to play 3 games IS and then 2 games Panther and then 3 games SU-100. Better develop one kind of play style at once.

Awesome ! Great to see you looking at your own gameplay. Watching some vids on you tube for each of your tanks will really help to see how it fits best into the battlefield and how to better play them to achieve better and better results. I remember having the same goal :) 

 

Happy Gaming

Which happens to every player, even those with a 60+ WR ...

The moment you realised you were a noob just rushing to get credits, moved  you from the ranks of utter noobs.

All players are newbs at one moment, then they can become a noob but progress. Or stay noob as part of their dayjob ...

Slowly getting there, win rate progressing, hit rate progressing, clan member now and my survival rate is improving because I'm not rushing in.

Still get battered once in a while when ambushed, left out on a limb by team mates going off solo or when totally outmatched +2 tiers etc.

Enjoying the game much better, hopefully am getting better at the same time.

A noob:

- Blocks me if I want back after a peek a boom. In these cases it is very unfortunate that you can not shoot a teammate.

- is a fast tank hiding in the bushes watching two teammates fighting with three tanks and hopes that he can hit as they emerge. At the end he is the only survivor
and is shot to pieces. If he had been helped direct the game was won.

When he understands the attributes if the vehicle he is driving and plays accordingly. When he sees where he needs to go and what he needs to do to evaluate the game as it unravels. Most importantly when he evaluates the game from his own failings. So I'm summary, we are all noobs at times! Otherwise we would never learn

The moment you realised you were a noob just rushing 

 

Like when in low tier medium on Lost Temple and you see whole team go for temple and you think " I'll flank and hit them from the back" and you end up meeting whole red team and killed instantly.

However most of the times when you noob out its because your team is doing the right thing and you're "thinking outside the box" so you will end up winning anyway.

Even a best player can have noob moment. Propper noob is driving E100 with less then 1700 games played ...

I can identify with this a lot. I've generally had fun playing this game, but then for every good game I have I have to get through those games whe everyone is fighting their own battle and I end up yelling at my tablet...

 

And then in the next game I shuffle away shame faced after getting myself killed in the most embarrassing way...

Well, I started looking at my stats somewhere after 5500 games (I don't reallyknow what I was doing before that point, being a constant noob?) and ~ 2000 games later I just passed the 50% wr-line. Aiming for 60% now, it's gonna take a while tough. :) History is a pain!

Being a bit slow on the up take, it took me a long while to realise that all those boring stats of vehicles were there for a reason and players that studied them were better than me! (Rocket science) :child: anyway after noobs get my way up to tier X, I have now abandoned those dizzy heights and gone back Bowen the tiers to learn correctly. I'm still crap, but am improving my kill and win rate.        GOOD LUCK, hope to meet you in game at some point!
