I'm not that good so why do I carry so much lately? I want better players on my team.

My last 10 matches I was top performer/1st place on my team for damage and xp in 6/10 matches. In the other 4 I placed 2,3,4x2. 

 

I am not that good. I still get derped more than I can count. I have lots to learn about tank skills in general. Heck, I flat out get blown out of the water in tier 10 battles. 

 

So why do I seem to carry more than I should? This does not seem right to me. Am I being placed with horrible players and it is shooting fish in a barrel for red? What is going on here?

 

Thanks for any input you have.

You get some good teams and you get some bad teams, remember the average player is 48%.

You arent doing terrible, but you arent carrying. According to blitzstars you average your hp in damage which isnt bad but not carrying. You have a 59 wr so you obviously arent getting shat on every game, maybe watch some videos or memorize module places.

I feel the same way.

I've ground a few lines to Tier 7 (T29, almost have the M41 Bulldog, T-44, got the Rudy for Black Friday) but I tend to focus in Tiers 5-6 as my 'training ground' and have been b*tch slapped aplenty by some very skilled players - but have noticed that lately I seem to 'carry' quite often - and usually I don't have the kills but have caused damage to most of the reds and get the Confederate medal more often than not...

 

It just feels like I'm the smartest 'tard' in the bunch?

By carry I mean that out of the 7 players on my team, I have 2 to 3 times the damage and the reds either mop them up leaving me with a 4 on 1 or worse or the red team is even worse letting us basically steam roll right through them.

 

I KNOW I'm not a very skilled player.  I know I'm getting a little bit better as I play but it feels like there has been a skill shift or something where I find myself at or near the top in a lot of battles - sometimes with 4 or 5 kills....  it's weird.....

Kind of feels wrong ('Tell me where the bad tank touched you' kind of thing)

 

Don't get me wrong, I have a LOT more fun when this happens but eventually RNJesus will get me in line for another b*tch slapping

UAV, Wolverine, you guys are doing great.  You're both winning at about 60%, which is pretty durn good.  You'll find better players, you'll have bad games, but overall you guys are kicking butt.  As mentioned above, the average winrate is 48%.  Just go ahead and admit to yourselves that you are good Blitz players.

Thanks Cletus! I never thought about it that way. (Meaning the average wr is 48% and this is as good as it is going to get.) And thanks for the compliment. I still have a way to go before I feel truly confident about my gameplay. I focus on improving constantly.

 

Thanks again!

I hear you.  I find that the higher up I am in the team standings, the more likely it is that we lose.  I’m feel that I’m good enough to contribute in most of my tanks, but I’m not a carrier.  I just try to make certain I’m putting out more damage/kills than I’m taking, and hope my team does their bit too.

i think you are doing great UAV!. I can only hope that I'll be as good as you at your number of battles.. I'm willing to bet that you are just getting better.. and you are beginning to realize it

Aw shucks! Thanks for that. That really makes me feel great and encourages me to keep striving to better support my team. I can definitely credit the forums, the streamers, and the YouTube channels

So sick and tired of carrying for the loss tonight I want to shoot myself in the head. 

 

When you do more damage by 1K than anyone on either team and more xp than anyone on either team (for your 'valiant effort' )  it is pathetic to lose. Just pathetic.

 

Friday nights are tough for this game. Worthless meatbags on every team.

Before mad games the saying was 25% of players are campers, 25% are YOLO'ers and 50% try to play ( regardless of skill ).

After Mad Games it is 30% are campers 40% are YOLO'ers and 30% try to play ( regardless of skill )  :O 

That should answer your question you are in the 30%.
