thats the spirit :)  yes we can see that you are getting much better and congrats for the effort .and yes for your last 300 battles you have  56% winrate. if you need any help add me ingame

How do you work out winrate over battles? Is it not just a figure wg gives out?

Now averaging 54-55% over last 1000 (approx), hit rate hovering around 80%.

 

Paying the price for my earlier suicide rushes for credits.

 

Still, it all goes to prove you can recover from utter noobdom ( to some extent anyway)

Looks like you're too cautious (low spotting rates, high survival rates.) By the time you get stuck in most of your team is dead and you end up dying too.

If you want to play that way, then play TD's.

 

I would suggest you try the German and US tanks as well.

I'm afraid, in higher tiers, the answer is a resounding yes.

youve rushed tiers and you're the sort of tiger 2/e75 player that contributes to all the angry venting on this forum from better players.

 

that said you're still relatively inexperienced, and your stats in lower tiers aren't nearly as bad.

go back down to tiers 3-5 and hone your skills.

stop camping, learn the techniques you need to master, like hull down and sidescraping.

try some different lines, you've chosen one of the toughest to master

watch ruckus and bushka and many others who do fine instructional videos on YouTube, and in another thousand games you could be a half decent player.

but please leave tiers 7-9 well alone until then.

It took me a long time to realise I was a noob lol (I still am). I blamed the tanks for my noob ness lol the guns weren't good enough, the armour not strong enough etc so I rushed up,the tiers thinking better tanks meant better guns, stronger armour ethers they were far better but so were the players so I got killed more lol.

 Then I realised it was me not the tanks my WR is slowly improving as I've learned to watch other players and follow them , I've watched the videos and learned about when to use different ammo, sides crape and angling, I'm still a noob and will be for a long time yet but will get better. Thanks  to everybody who contributes on here you are a big help and I do try to listen

I could have wrote this and I've had like 3000 battles more than you. I'm sure when you reach 5000 battles, you'll be a force to be reconed with. Reading stuff like this makes it all worth it.

How many games played?

104 is fairly poor for having reached tier V.And the Pz IV is capable of way more than that.

 

You must learn the characteristics of each tank to play it successfully and successfully take other tanks out on the battlefield.

 

The Pz IV for example: Weak armor,you can bounce shots with the hull and upgraded turret if you have it yet,but don't count on it.Always avoid being hit in that tank since it is mainly penetrable.Good gun,use it well.Very mobile which results in you having the possibility to relocate and quickly flank and move around the battlefield as you please a lot of the time.

 

It's the tank I'm best in skill-wise,and even though I'm not a very good player I can without problem do close to 2000 every game with it.

 

So simply.You have to practice a bit and not rush the tiers as it seems you're doing.Take your time with learning and go down several tank lines so you get better at all kinds.Will also help you with having a good pace about going down the tiers.

 

:)

Oh lordy, you've bought a load of high tier premiums with <400 games under your belt.

This isn't usually recommended.

 

I tend to think full map awareness hasn't really bedded in under 1000 games, leave alone all the nuances of the game.

 

As you can see you're not ready

http://wotbstars.com...&geo=EU&lng=eng

If your stats weren't red at this point it would mean you were a reroller. Perfectly normal to be bad after 300 games, just don't go above tier 5 until at least 1000 games in my opinion.

Personally I'd grind all the lines until I've researched all the tier 5s before choosing one.

 

Filter by premium hide and premium only, and you can see that premiums aren't a shortcut to better results.

A noob is not a noob when the noob reaches 90% winrate in 70,000 battles.

Just like my thoughts and feelings aswell.

Thanks to all also from me for helping and sharing information. And to those who have the energy to do gameplay-videos etc.
