Hi friends!

I bought my T54E1 yesterday, and, with some gold I got from crates, grabbed the top gun and tracks (Praise Free XP reserves!:P)

I switched to Rating Battles mode, and smacked that big ORANGE button. 

"Here we go!" I thought. "Let's go pulverize some scrubs!"

And.... I sucked. My first rating battle, I did 2.4k dmg, and died with 3 minutes left on the clock. Luckily, a guy from DD stepped in to carry my sorry behind. (o7 to that guy, I love him/her/it to the moon and back!) 

Anyways...

"It's all good!" I told myself. "It was just one battle, and you still did 2.4k dmg! You got this!"

And... I sucked even harder. The losses kept piling up, over and over. My damage scores varied from a big fat 0, to 3k. Granted, my T54E1 was stock, with only the tracks and gun researched, but am I really that bad at auto loaders? The difference between Tiers 8 and 9 seem to be insanely huge. 

So.... um....:mellow:

Am I just that bad at auto loaders? Tier  9+ seems to be exceptionally campy. How do I play auto loaders when I'm bottom tier? Is there any way I can force the pace of the game? What kind of tanks should I be wary of, and prioritize as important targets? Or am I just not ready for Tier 9+:(?

 

Peace,

Guardian_Angel

Many people play rating battles competitively, so they will likely be using fully decked out tanks with max crew and slots and provisions, while you're in a semi upgraded tier 9. that's probably why you're not doing as well as you could be

yea that. And it's also possible that if there are not enough players in the queue, that all the leagues will be mashed together in games, so the very best players will be playing against the very worst. Not saying you're bad, but you might be up against some very high caliber players.

I used the rating system to practice with my OBJ 704... it may have yielded a sub-rating, but the practice paid off when I went back to regular battles. I could not give a fig about the rating system.

Using tier 9 in rating battles is a bad idea, especially with all the tier 10s fully equipped.

Tier 10s: All 32 tanks including 3 Premiums and 2 Collector Tanks 

Premiums: 87 Tanks- 3 Tier 10, 4 Tier 9, 33 Tier 8, 21 Tier 7, 12 Tier 6, 10 Tier 5

Collector Tanks: 73 Tanks- 2 Tier 10, 4 Tier 7, 6 Tier 6, 9 Tier 5, 15 Tier 4, 25 Tier 3, 15 Tier 2 

Currently Grinding: T-34-2G FT (all other lines done)

Masteries: 217/357

That's how it's been for me in every new tank. First few games are good, then I can't do anything at all for about 20 games and my stats crash. But thankfully, I pick up the nuances of the tank and do better. 

 

Just be persistent and learn the tank. Don't think "Oh this is a medium tank, so I've gotta do this...". Instead, think "Oh this is XYZ tank, and it does this and that, so I've gotta go here or there." Some tanks don't fit their type's meta.

Like many others are saying, don't play ratings for grinding. It's painful because mostly everyone else is decked out and trying their best to take out every tank possible and win. You'll find yourself doing less damage, being much less effective, being a detrimental drag on your team, and losing more credits. Besides all that, don't worship your WR, be respectful to those in ratings that are trying to win, play regular battles in your tier 9. That's where I grind my tier 9s.

1. Stop playing rating. You'll be bottom tier each game, whereas, you could have been top tier (honeymoon period) for your first few games in pubs.

2. 54e1 is a second line tank. That means, you don't brawl. You're sort of the mobile TD that backs up other meds, if that makes sense. The tank takes a while to get the hang of IK from experience. Decide when you want to go for clip reload or not when you have 1 or 3 shots left. Positioning is key, along with tsrget prioritization. Trade when needed, 960 dmg for 300-500 isn't that bad, but still, try not to. This thing is deadly late game, as all autoloaders are.


Bring back the T49A
