The way you worded it, sounds like you want someone to "commit" to helping you. May I suggest just asking for pointers and/or help in a training room instead, you may get more responses. Good form seeking instruction though. :great:

In what way do you grasp the theoretical?

And in what way do you lack the practical abilities? 

 

There are about a dozen rules of thumb one should apply to this game, getting to know them and applying them, should start to show results in a matter of weeks ...

 

So, I’m not yet sure how the puzzle fits together. You have a WG account from 2013. You should have WOT insights that translate directly into how to do well in Blitz, but even if wins are not easy, the damage output is not there for somebody with 7 yrs in wot.

I must have, back in 2013, created an account, but since I only have 1777 battles compared to those with over 20,000 I suspect you, and they, know more than me. So I’m looking for some one to show me the ropes.

 

i don’t want to make the same mistakes those who have tread before me already know not to make. 
 

I watch the videos and they make it look easy. If I yolo I die if I hold back I do so little damage as to be a liability to my teammates or I just die later with little beneficial effect on the team.

 

lately I just start following who I perceive as good player and shoot at whoever shoots at him OR who he shoots at. If he doesn’t fire I don’t fire usually. I limit my decision making to is he not firing due to his desire to remain in camo cover or because he doesn’t see the red tank if it’s the former I don’t blow his cover if it’s the later I fire and alert.

You’ve not spent any time on learning the game. You’ve pushed up the tiers too quickly buying Premium tanks and expecting those to fix your problems.  Grind more lines. Learn the game.

Doomking11 beat me to it! This is exactly what you need to do. You need to help yourself before asking someone to help you. There is plenty out there for you to learn and change your tanking strategy. Noone can change you but you. Perhaps you should check out the video vault and search YouTube or ask for some YouTube series. I have Unicum Training Series on my channel and others can tell you other playlists that would be helpful for you. 

 

__V_O_P__ is correct also. Improving takes time in this game. Aside from your request here, you have also purchased your way up the tech tree. That leads me to believe that you are not the patient kind. I could be wrong, but all I am saying is that you need to take it slower and put more battles in. Work your way up the tech tree. You are frustrated because you are not learning what you need to and that is your own fault.

I should be able to platoon with you some, maybe not alot and only at tier 5 and below as we need to build your basic skills first. I find it kinda funny the forums trash on bad players, someone asks for help then all the response say "watch videos" sorry but it's not that simple. Videos can be overwhelming for a newer player as they can cover so much ground, I think it's good he is reaching out for help.

Either you’re trolling or you’re beyond training help.

https://www.blitzsta...yer/com/AknaKon

If you’re actually this bad, go back to tier 2 for 300 battles minimum and dont leave it until you can survive 40% of your games and average 400 damage per battle at tier 2.  

Currently no unicum would waste their time.

Okkkk looking at your stats, I won't lie, I would think that you were a troll based on WN8 and WR alone. If you aren't, however, I would teach you, for a price. I'm not sure what that price would be, but it would be at least 15 bucks an hour, and the only reason it's that low is because I've never tutored before, and I feel like that's an acceptable price. And honestly, no one in their right mind would teach/tutor anyone for free, so I don't think you will find anyone willing to do that. That being said, I could probably get you to be at least an average player, and if you are a good learner, I could make you a good one. I can't turn you into a unicum, but if you take what I teach you and apply it, you can turn yourself into one.

 

I have to go for tonight, message me if you're interested.

I have watched the Bushkas how to series as well as Martin Dogger, bigboooty Judy, pantooffee [sic], droodles etc. Having reviewed the initial responses with a couple of exceptions. They seem slightly contradictory. One for example notes I have been around since 2013 *note that’s longer than most responders* yet others say I may be impatient.

 

The beauty of a free society is everyone is allowed there own opinion. Because of how this game is structured I have indeed did the start over as a brand new player thing twice, both have win rates over 50% I believe. I will look at them and see if they have the damage rate and the tier structure suggested by “AbsoluteSniper”. The only problem with tier two playing is the wait time between games. I’m not sure this is not intentional by war gaming to push new people up the tiers. My balance seems to be at tier three with the Cruiser IV. That seems to have the balance between low tier and lack of wait times. I have waited sometimes as long as 40 minutes for a tier 2 game to start. (From memory but I will check the pictures I took to document the issue)

 

Take note my initial request said I watched the videos. I have watched videos in more then one language. I have watched videos on more than one playing style I have watched multiple videos on each tank, when available, that I have run. I have watched videos on tank by type by map by playing style, by server et al ad infintum.  I have even watched videos of Me playing this game for insight into what to do differently. In one video series Bushes notes the Comet is the best tank to learn in and his favourite tank so I ground out that tech tree until I got the British Comet. Bigboooty Judy on the other hand listed four tanks one being the heavy Russian KV1 and she also indicated its best to learn in a heavy so I ground that tech tree until I acquired a KV1. I find the comet easier to use but I could be wrong as my win rate seems to indicate.
 

I surmise “troll” is a derogatory term. So to those who called me that, thank you for the invective, and for the “I’ve never helped anyone before dude but I’ll charge you $15 an hour minimum”  (paraphrased) I respectfully decline. Not over the cost because I have also tried that but over the lack of a general understanding of what I wrote. 
 

I thank all that responded even those who were less than sincere and anything but helpful. I will continue to find ways to improve since I am never second.

I'm actually curious about this.   Obviously you know you're bad at the game (you're here asking for help).  What was you're thinking behind buying the Action X.  A higher tier tank (and expensive) when you've clearly not mastered even forward and reverse in this game.

You've rerolled twice and you feel "balanced" at tier 3?? Unicom shouldn't even be in your vocabulary yet. Replacing that ambition with "I want to learn patience" would be a good start. :facepalm:

 Im sorry if that seems harsh toward someone asking for help, but the first thing you need is a reality check. (If you're not just trolling). #boredlockdown

Lots of points ... 

 

First things first:

 

Having multiple accounts is a waste of time and money. Because you are doing the same thing over in multiple accounts and don't benefit from accrued crew skills, clan supply benefits, premium time, premium tanks, ... 


If you have an account from 2013, that means you play(ed) World Of Tanks PC.

Correct?

How much did you play? Still active? 

 

What device do you play WOTB on?
PC? Laptop? Tablet? Phone?

Are you proficient using the device? 

 

If a touch device. Have you gone into settings and adjusted the size and layout of buttons, sensitivities, etc so that it is comfortable to use?

 

Are you set up for success? 

Do you have consumables installed like repair kit, multi repair kit, adrenaline?

So that, if you get tracked in a bad spot, that you can repair and move. If set on fire, that you don't burn to a crisp.

 

Do you aim in?
It takes a lot of hits per battle to help the team win. As in, more than 2, 3 or 4.
With a good number of tanks there is a big aim circle and if you just move around and press fire ... the shot will miss or hit some place you don't want it to hit.

So, with less accurate tanks especially, but good in general, let that circle shrink down, aim in, then press fire.

 

Where do you aim?

Angles come into play for bounces and ricochets. So good shots are perpendicular to a surface. 

Importantly zoom in, so you get the gunner view. Don't just depend on 3d overlook. Zoom in before the shot, look for grey areas ... because just shooting pink/red means it will do nothing, typically. 
Front lower glacis, commanders hatches, flat sides and rears are good places to aim for.  

 

Don't YOLO.

Do not rush out there and implode. That's a waste of a tank and gives the red team an extra gun. 

Play with more caution. 

 

Hard cover. 

Hold hard cover.  Solid objects protect your tank from shells. 

 

Don't CAMP.

Don't sit in the back and be that sniper, waiting for something to hit from the safety of the back line, waiting for reds to come to you. 

 

Do you over expose?
Try to only expose to one red tank at a time. Hold that cover during reload. Then go out a bit to fire. 

 

Can you hull down?

Use depression in terrain and map features to hide the tank hull.

 

Can you side scrape?
Put the nose and lower front plate against hard cover / building.

Angle out in reverse slightly to fire. 

 

Read the minimap.

Where did the greens go? Where are the reds? How many are where?
Look at the minimap during reload to try to surveil the battlefield.

 

Lots more can be talked about, but above are kind of the essentials.

 

And, there are video series on all this. I will see if I can pull up some basics. 

PS: Low tiers have separate queues for new players and existing players, fewer tanks, ... so the old advice to practice in lower tiers may indeed be hard to apply, due to queue times.

Are your practical problems mechanical, or are you struggling with decision making? 

 

If it's the latter, you just need more time to practice. Take some risks while you play to practice driving and shooting, and do it at low tiers. Ive never waited more than 2 or 3 minutes for a tier 3 game (usually less than 1 though), so I find that 40 minute example dubious. I say this because the low tiers, while stale, are the most forgiving (although they have some armor/penetration disparity). 

 

If your mechanical skills are up to par, then you need to work on decision making. There's more room for passive play in WoTPC, but Blitz is all about keeping the gun going and dealing damage. If you can hit someone, and you have cover, don't worry about being spotted, at least for now. Just take the shot; try to be doing damage. Your average damage is a paltry 99 per match, which is bad even for rier 1. 

 

With this in mind, the thing you need work on is DAMAGE.  Just do any at all, more than 1 or 2 shots. Shoot at players looking at other players. Aim for weakspots when needed. Doing damage is a big factor in letting your team win (though it's not the whole story).

Yes. Thanks for the good, helpful advice. As for the delay I’ve been playing exclusively Tier 2 since yesterday. And the wait has been under three minutes without exception. So perhaps the wait times that day are an outlier.  While playing tier two I’ve noticed ***with a single exception*** I’m always playing low tier.
