I've been playing for 7 years and just recently came back from a break, so many new tanks to try. It feels like I never left so I play just as good as when I left. Recently I've been averaging around 1900-2200ish damage per game consistently and been playing decently. It's just the teams I'm with I can pull them through and I just slowly loss more than I win. If I'm playing to what I think is the best of my ability is there a way that I can further up my odds or winning?

Averaging 1900-2200 per game consistently? First things first, let’s address the obvious - that’s not what you’re averaging.

there are countless guides on youtube and many helpful forum posts here. if you really want to improve then you gotta take action yourself.

First thing to fix, bump up your survivability to more than 38%. Try to stay alive longer to do more damage. That’s a biggie.

Everything you need to learn from on the forum is already written down eons ago. What's left is a scattering of woe me hobos and wannabe Unis like me. Just do a search on the search bar, and soak up the knowledge from legends who have since moved on to Valhalla. All we can offer you is distilled regurgitation, or worse, incorrect advice.

To be fair, your games played to forum posts are almost 4/1; fairly sure OP is at a disadvantage. When I go through a session, I can almost guarantee like 3k average damage, then I visit Blitzstars...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I playing my tier 6s and my stock 7s trying to go up new tress yes I don't average 1900. But when I'm in my 7s(non stock), 8s, and 9s I can do fairly well. Yeah I'm gonna have a game where I get shut down I'm not perfect. Appreciate the feed back I'll just go explore the forums some.

Thanks again

When you ask for help, you’ll get it, but it’s going to be honest and it’s going to be direct.

 

When damage is concerned, damage/tier is how it’s viewed in order to compare accurately. Right now your damage/tier is just under 200 and if you want to be a 60% player you need to be closer to 250.

 

We can get into the nuts and bolts of other things to improve upon but the metric that most closely correlates with winrate is damage. Figure out to improve your damage consistently and you’ll find yourself winning more.

Do damage and get kills pretty much

and do it early because snowballs are what win games on a macro level, except on some maps like mines wih silly op sniping positions making pushing without a 2-1 advantage game-losing 

 

Don't bother with survival rate, damage ratio, whatever because once you judge the game is one and it's just clean-up then you may as well throw your tank in to farm as much as possible.

Are you interesting in watching top players on the server show you their games? I can't think of a better way to improve, outside of having someone tutor/coach you one one one.

That's true in a vacuum, but there are different ways of improving your survival rate, and not all of them help your winrate or damage numbers. You could curb your "stat-padding" (aka "yoloing for damage") during steamroll victories to make absolutely sure you survive — essentially padding you survival rate at the expense of avg dmg. You could also play supremacy exclusively and squeak out a few losses here and there where you lose on caps but survive. Both tactics will manufacture a boost to your survival rate but won't help your wr on their own.

 

I too have survival issues, but the challenge is playing actively and being influential, while minimizing risk. There is no easy fix I can think of, just individual in-game decision that impact how well I do for myself and the team.

OP has averaged those numbers in some of his recent sessions, and feels encouraged by that progress. I don't think this needs to be nitpicked.

I'll see what I can do to increase it. I think I just need to get through my head I'm not gonna win every game. I love wotb cause the variety and hate just grinding with one tank. Im never gonna me a uni but I want to be atleast decent but it shouldnt stop me from having fun.

You are not playing to the best of your ability. I don’t play to the best of my ability, most of the time. Basically every player in this game is capable of some improvement, whether it is big or small.

Platoon with a better player.

(or at least, with an equal player)

 

It's the single, biggest thing, you can do to increase your odds of winning.


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

More consistency for me. Too many peaks/valleys…

He’s hit that number twice in the past 30 days and not in the last week. The point I’m making is that damage = wins and his damage/tier specifically needs to come up more if he wants to win more.

 

As with any problem, starting with the facts/reality is key if we want to help with a solution.

OP,   look at your 30 day results

https://www.blitzsta...Nathanspitfire1

 

You have tanks you are doing better in than others.

   There are some fairly decent trends there.

 

Are you looking at winning more OR getting better as a player?

   IF you want to win more - play your best performing tanks.

 

 

 If you want to get better as a player -- look at your weaker areas - and try to identify why.

    If you want help with that - I see some trends - but put up a few replays on games you want to know what you could have done better/differently .
