I posted a thread here: http://forum.wotblitz.com/index.php?/topic/47159-my-journey-from-noob-to-blue/page__fromsearch__1 back in March.  I was at about 23,000 games and had just crossed the 55% WR level.  I estimated that it would take me another 18 months to get 57% and I am pleased to report I am slightly ahead of schedule.  Currently sitting at 56.23% (peak was 56.29% pre-Halloween tanks, I must have gotten bitten by something to fall to 56.21% and struggling to get back up).

 

Anyway, just wanted to post an update that I am sitting at a 56.23% WR today with 30k battles.  Star1 is 1.259, WIN8 (2347), WIN7 (1602).  Hope to get to light purple and a 57% WR before September.


 

For those of you who think it can't be done, read my OP and then look at my battle performance form 3/2016 through today.  Other than a few terrible cohorts around Halloween, I've improved quite a bit, and you can too.  http://www.wotbstars.com/history.php?usr=Turd___Ferguson&geo=NA&lng=eng&showAll=1

30k battles?  That's quite an uphill climb, and I admire your perseverance.

Tell me about it.  If I average a 62.5% WR from here on out it's going to take me 4200 games to get to 57%, but oh well.  What else can you do, I mean other than re-roll.

I thought about it for a hot second a few months back, but decided against it. I am what I am, working on improving all the time, what else can you do?

My advancement has been slow. I'm seeing some results. But, there are so many setbacks as well. Just this morning trying to get anniversary x5 exp on my T49 its been 4 straight losses. The green team seems to die faster than I can load and shoot, and the Valiant Effort bonus doesn't help with the WR.

Regardless, congratulations on your advancement and I admire your perseverance.

Congrats on your steady improvement.  

 

If if you want to bolster your star 1 play the jpanther to 70 games, jpanther2 to 80 ( assuming you can keep,up,the 1.6 star rating) edelweiss to 70, su 101m to 70, mt25 to 60, Anko to 50, and crusader to 50.

 

You need 10x the tier in games played for each tank to qualify for star1.  Each tank above you are purple in but don't have enough games for them to count.   Many are very close.  Do all and you will see a bump. 

 

Best of luck.  I hope you are enjoying the journey

Players like you (and me, to a lesser extent) are the reason why I only really care about 30-day stats.

Who doesn't want a cookie?  My post is less about me tooting my own horn (I do that enough already), and more about pointing out to other players that improvement is possible.  Over the course of ~9 months I've been able to improve my WR by 1.23%, and that's with 30k+ games.  I see a lot of players on the forums saying they can't get better, they don't know how to, or worse, it's impossible and the game is rigged.  That's simply not true, and I want others to see that you can indeed improve your WR, you just have to work at it.

I'm pulling your chain, Turd. Nice work.

 

What kind of cookie do you want?

I'm in similar shoes bud, although I've taken a small slide lately... nice to see the effort vs the re-roll. I think it's worth it.

I will go Blue in the next week or two and I care not about win rate after that...highly doubt I will ever come close to Purple because I am 99.5% solo and am well over 9K games.

Stats are a drag to care about/monitor

 

I plan on just doing my thing/having fun and stopping gameplay if a loss streak gets to long.

 

Go get em Turd...Give em Heck

Tell me about it!  Try it at 30k games!  I'm like you, I've come to care less about my stats, but it's still a benchmarking process for me to gauge overall progress.  If my 30/60 day are above my LT, that's generally what I focus on most.  I looked you up thinking there's no way he platoons less than me, but sure enough...you do!  I think that makes a world of difference.  See you out there.
