So I finally got the ARL 44 and the first 15 battle (yes, I know, only 15 and I start whining) have been MEH. I am doing damage but it is slow and teams are trash (complete trash). I have had a few tanks in this game that are suppose to be great but for some reason I can't do well. I think is because I get so many trash teams I can't even approach descent win-rate.  I am currently only 33% winrate in this thing inspite of doing 1450 average damage with first gun (I feel is a descent amount). I have a 2.00 kills to death and a 1.5 damage ratio but only win 5 out of 15. 

 

Excitement turns to disappointment in a few games of MMer purgatory.

I just lost two more and the teams were gone in less than 2 minutes. 

 

Just won one and look look at that damage.

Um, that screen shot must've gotten garbled -- it shows a damage of 1. Ha, that's a helluva battle.

 

Are you still running stock? That first turret/gun is hard to win with. That first turret makes me laugh -- it looks like it was welded together in a barn somewhere. It's hard to drive something well when it is embarrassing to be seen in.

nope, I do 2000 damage and lose. I pull a big 1 damage and we win. I secret to success in this tank is to do as little damage as possible. 

 

Just lost another with two afks and the battle lasting 1:45. That is it, the team even the afks were dead in 1 minute and 45 seconds.

It isn't the tank it is the teams this tank is expected to carry. This tank can't seem to take a hit and the teams are going in less than 2 minutes. I mean these are some of the most epic fail teams I have ever seen. One thing I have learned about blitz in two years of playing when the match maker hates you and a tank you will never recover.

​Yeah no... my recommendation is to stop playing that tank right now and play something else.... When playing the same tank again and again... you're more likely to get the same bad teams again and again, for whatever reason.  Play the tank tomorrow... and goodness gracious.... free xp to get rid of that terrible turret.

33% is better than the WR in some of mine, thta started out with 25%, 20%, 10% and even zero out of twelve games. 

 

Teams are getting worse and worse. Some need more of a team to carry through for a win .. and if the team isn't there. 

 

The only way to counter it, is stop driving the tank and wait for a few weeks. Don't try to grind through or push for the 2x. I did last weekend with another tank and got two wins out of twelve games across two sessions. RIP WR in that vehicle.

I think the ARL44 is awesome.  If you're rolling bad teams, just change up and come back to it later.

Nobody says stock tanks are great, m8. Give it time, and never try to power grind anything unless you absolutely don't care about having fun, that's just not the way to do it.

draw me like one of your french tanks

Love the tank! Give it time, and once fully upgraded I'm sure you will too!

I think this is the point of the topic, if it takes so long to "love" the tank and I have to endure losing over and over to get there I may never "love"  this tank.

33%.....that tells me it's not the tank.....and you should NOT be running ANY tanks til you've upgraded it. Food for thought, not a criticism.
