Sioux, 

First of all let me say thank you, I think from all of us "newbies" this guide helped me out a ton. Second well done. The way you put it and added examples made this very easy to decipher. Even though i have only been playing a couple months and have 3 T5's i could not figure out the tank symbols.                 Thank you very much

Been playing Blitz for two weeks, but I knew how to play already because I play WoT: Xbox for more than an hour everyday. Nevertheless, I +1 this guide.

That symbol means the user (and one other person on that side) are platooning; basically a way to make sure you and your buddy are on the same side in the same game.  The chevron will have a 1 for the first platoon and a 2 if there are two pairs of people platooning on the side.  There will never be three pairs platooning to the best of my knowledge, and the platoons are spread among the teams (e.g. if one team has two platoons the other team has at least one platoon.)

There is no one stat that will tell you this.  Each tank is different and has it's own playstyle.  You're better off looking at a player's Win Rate with a particular tank.

The win rate to me would not reflect a tankers skills. The win rate is based on team win/loss. I have had tens of matches in which I killed 3-4 tanks and team was defeated. The win rate depends on the fortune or misfortune of match making?

I've experienced this over and over. Matches where I've killed 2-4 enemies and we've still lost. :( It's not an accurate reading of the Tanker's skill set.

Here is what is messed up.

Check the stats of concep. I've played a lot of matches. And I can admit out of frustration used gold exclusively.  Regardless of that I still can only kill tanks already damaged to reach above 3. Meaning undamaged full hp. But I'm damaged enough to have to hide. I consider myself decent. I can't see how it's possible to reach a consistent 70%+ win rate in any tank with matchmaking the way it is.

How are those stats even posdible?

Something doesn't add up.

Agreed on that. I've been trying to use new tactics and new ideas that people come up with but I'm still holding at about 47% I think. I need to do some more research and a lot more battling.

Maybe. But I really think there is something more to it. Haven't fully figured it out totally. I have been in matches where we roll over other team. I started screen shooting before the history log now. The tactics in most games play out the same. Every now and then you get the game where tanks go in 7 different directions.

Basically what I'm saying is there are players with some way around the system. Not sure how or what.

But it exists. No way can any player hold 80% win rate over 100+ games with MM as it is, no way.

That is a great guide, sir!  I am an experienced WoT player on the PC, and I found that I recognized many of these things off the bat, but still the game is different enough that there was definitely a learning curve to the UI and everything.  Again, good guide!  +1

Wish I had the time to sit and just watch these guys battle for awhile. Might be enlightening.

I platooned with concep. We only did 3 matches. But we had 2 defeats. It looked the same to me as all my matches. Couple tanks a factor and rest burnt off in short order. Granted concep and I where the last to cook off but that's kinda my issue. 

The way the matchmaking works it seems impossible to get good stats when they are a team stat not individual. 

No doubt concep is a elite player I just can't seem to jump that gap.........Concep posted a couple videos from battles today. I did see some things I would employ. But honestly i have had several battles with those kind of stats. I had a 3 kill 4k game today. But due to mm can't repeat unless had the same team. Just can't figure it out.

You're not bad of a player yourself. There was probably only one battle that I heavily surpassed you in damage and you stayed by my side to help out but our teams collapsed before we could effectively encircle the enemy all but one time. I'd like to add you to Attrition, if you want a clan.

 

Pm me if you're interested, Rocket.
