Greetings and salutations, forumers. Back in the middle of March or so, I was kinda trash - about 1300 WN8. I started researching strats and watching guides, though, and suddenly I began improving at an ever-increasing rate. Sometime around the beginning of June, I hit over 2000 WN8. Then, for whatever reason, I started sinking. I’ve been trying to play just as hard as (if not better than) I did before, but I keep dropping. Is this a fundamental problem with my playstyle, or just something that happens to everyone?

Usually kinda somewhat half-decent

It is relatively longer span of time so you know there is something bothering you that has come up.

Any idea what stats specifically are down? Wn8 business deviates when you play damage farmers vs. Damage blocker

 

If u have noticed this u may be interested in knowing what things on micro level are shifting in ur stats. A game outside of game.

I think I’ve found the answer after a few minutes of carefully studying my stats. Early June was when I started to complete a lot of tier V-VI grinds. I’ve been playing some VII-VIII’s for a while, but as I started playing more of them, I was playing more and more battles in unfamiliar tanks against better players, thus lowering my damage ratio, avg. spots, and survival rate. I guess I’m just not quite at a 2000+ WN8 skill level right now, but I can always try to improve :)

 

Also maybe I should focus on having fun more than stats - it is, after all, a game.

Those are goals of many m8.

My goal is to not play against missiles.

Ive had the same problem as you. My 30 day WR had gone down as I am playing more tier 8's and 9's. I usually hung out around tier 6. Getting used to different tactics and new-ish tanks that I'm unfamiliar in. My tier 6 WR the past 30 days is 68.5%. I can probably get it to 70% WR. My tier 8 WR is 53% though.:confused: Makes me a bit disgusted with myself.

Tier 8 is my worst tier as well. I actually enjoy playing tier IX-X far more.

Slumps are normal. I tend to bail out after 6 losses in a row or when running 30-40% for a bit. 

 

My WN8 has dropped considerably after falling in love with the low DPM beauty that is the 252U. I run 70% WR in that thing that and really enjoy it. However, my WN8 has remained below 2000 for 2 weeks now but Fudge it. It’s too much fun!
