After slugging through battles I have acquired a 49% WR after seeing it not move from 48% for a long time.

Any tips on how I can close the gap to 55% WR?

Your 30 day WR is nearly 60%. So just keep doing what you are doing.

 

And be a bit more aggressive. Your spots, DPM, etc,., all look like they could be tweaked upwards a bit.

 

Oh, and don't die, write your Mum, and abuse hills.

Pretty much what Tijger said. I started from a much lower base, nudging up to 55% now, loving it. Did have a brief but glorious 21 game run at 90%, but averaging 60% on 30/60/90 days. Apparently, it was a great tank once. Sadly, I was even more useless then.

First of all get your head around what the Comet is. It’s a fairly mobile Medium with good gun depression and a hard turret front. It has good DPM, nothing special these days, and bad penetration, which you need to accept. It’s around 76 mm, so you will need to stay out to realise the DPM. The only way you can do that is by using the turret front. Sneak around so you can peekaboom no scope hull down behind a ridge all the time, dont be afraid to snap shot, and just try to wear them down. Turn on Supremacy and learn to ourplay entire teams. Cap bases, and track enemies. Concentrate on putting out consistent damage, and learning to deal with desperate situations by using the Comets strengths - no matter if you are winning or losing. You will improve.

Might be a rough time to play it, given the amount of heavies around the tier.

Nah, it's fine. A rubbish player in an IS-3 is a rubbish player.

True, but if I remember correctly, comet doesn't have the best pen, and is3 has even better sidearmor now than it uses to. Not to mention meeting a tiger1/p, which will beat you in a dpm race. Lupus? So on and so forth.

That may be the theory, but in practice, it works. Tracking for assist in a tier 8 game is critical, and it's hard to pen a lot of those buggers with AP. However, I have enough of a credit reserve to spam prammo, so it's all good.

Basically, I'm thoroughly enjoying the challenge.

It depends on Wargaming if they let you get past 60%. I was close but then they gave me bad teams which continues today too. 50% wr even if doing over 2000 damage and being top scorer overall. Yes, there's the occasional ace but who cares? I'm going for win rate now.

 So maybe try buying something like 180 days of premium account. I could help with better teams and you can fire prammo with no credit issues.

Not to argue but you sound like a winge because the game got tougher,

 

i think we we are all given noob teams and I have several screen shots where my team has 4 or 5 zero damage players

 

funnily enough the game seems to play nicer with 30 days premium than when I am down to 5 days:hiding:

 

i just reread read some great posts improved my gameplay and if I do get 3 or 4 noob teams I stop, log out and do something useful in the real world come back and get given better teams

I think it's better for you to learn how to carry an average team rather than whining about the lineup. Winning a match is not just about doing damage, but also how the whole team is performing, how the team is working with one another, how the team is unraveling enemy's setups. I think this is also a difference between a 60%+ player than a 50%+ player: organizing a team of strangers. To practice this skill, play more tier III and IV games.

 

Returning to the topic: Comet is all about hull down. Penetration is horrible but you have to live with it. I'm starting to do that and it becomes better now. I find the play style abruptly different in Comet than in Cromwell, where you can boss around the map with a Cromwell but not a Comet. Driving T29 is a good way to practice hull down because that is what T29 is famous for, or try doing it with ARL 44, though having a slightly weaker turret.
