Snipey.  You’re an absolute thorn in my side when you’re on red.  I think you and I are in the same boat... can’t quite figure out that 2k+ avg damage at tier 8.  That 2.5k+ avg damage at tier 9.  And that 3k+ avg damage at tier 10.  That’s about what it takes to really succeed.

 

Im working on not overthinking it and being more patient.  You have all the ‘skills’.  I’ve seen you use them.  I think all us good but not great player problems can be boiled down to MORE patience and better positioning.  I’m often guilty of getting to those great power spots early, getting the early licks, and overstaying my welcome.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  If you figure something out, return the favor.

Will do sir

That would be the easiest way but I like my account. Would rather keep this one

Lol, you made me check my two accounts (I have that bookmarked but haven't looked into it for long time). I just saw I'm purple for last 30 days in tankist22 (had no clue). I can tell you I played lower tiers to check off those tanks (master them, get them 60%+, sell and forget). I also played tier X STB-1. When I compare this to my other account (greenwolf2019), I clearly see that spot rate and kill ratio are somewhat higher which could bring it to unicum status. It could also be that average damage is high enough for average tier which helped as well.

I'm not telling you to "cheat" with low tier tanks, but just saying what I was doing lately. I wasn't even aware stats in my both accounts look good from this perspective as they have improved, again, thanking to lot of activity in lower tiers.

             Iv been rolling uni for past 60 days 64-65%wr with win8 of 2500-2600. Biggest tip i can give you is to play off your team. meaning if thy go town then go town and try to keep the morons alive as long as you can. Iv started focusing on things like example understanding the view range of the tank im playing. best places to get spots early. where to go after the spots happen. not just engaging but trying to think about the big picure. for example do i continue to stalemate a hull down med fight on the flank or do i bail after camo reset to give our hevies a gun advantage and an extra angle of fire. more often then not its that decisive action that wins the game. good luck! purple is a hard color to earn and harder to keep! if you ever want to toon just hit me up in game. ill pretty much toon with anyone.

On a more serious note, really spamming those tanks that you do well in helps. But focus on win rate first. WN8 will follow.

Any tips on how to do that without over extending?

Understanding what a bush is, abusing known crossfire angles, and understanding how much of a vehicle needs to be exposed to spot.

Unlocking purple and dark purple hinges on high damage, very good spotting, high survival and ultimately one desires a high win-rate as well. 

 

Not many people have the keys to unlock that combination. Hopefully some of them will chime in.

 

One thing I can advise NOT to do is playing other games and neglecting practicing wotb battles. 


I've been purple in the past.  But I 'm very average at best these days.

What it takes most of all, is playing with your hair on fire.

Be totally intense every second.  Fire every shot, get every kill.

I just played a game on Naval Frontier where the battle went the other way, and my team slowly rolled to a win.

In my purple days I would have rushed over and got some damage and a kill or two.

In these days, I just watched from afar.  Picked up 300 damage and moved on.

If you want to be purple, you can't rest for a second.
