Cripes, so many bad games today. Kind of lucked out and managed to still get the Centurion back to 50%, but oi. How the heck are people losing 60% predictions? XD A lot of times my Cent is all that's left.

Sometime I really want to just forget about my winrate, efficiency rating, perfromence rating and play only for fun but I can't do it anymore.

At first, I used to have fun no matter my team lose or win as my utimate goal is to gain exp. to unlock next tank. After I play a while, I started to notice about my own statistic and heard people said about winrate......that automaticly made me care about these numbers more. However, now I know this is bad thing more than good thing.

True, it made me play more carefully and getting better but "the fun" that I had during the first 100 games seems to disappear to somewhere......Now a day, when I log in and play, I always think in my head: I hope today I win more than lose and if I lost 4-6 times in row, it will mostly make me quit the game. (unless I win a lot before it happens)

I think I've managed to crawl myself out of another hole. Again. Man, this day was brutal, but on the bright side, I was able to get more wins out of the Centurion. Ugh.

I hope tomorrow won't be as bad, because honestly, that 52% is looking faaaar away at this rate.

While I lost, it was the satisfied result.

There was a momentary period of time when I thought like that, back when I had reached my goal of getting the M103. But then I forgotten my creed that obsessing over win stats was pointless. I decided instead to just continue my collector's instincts and go up new tank branches so I can try out new vehicles and playstyles I've never had before. Now I only get agitated if I don't win while a vehicle still has its daily doubles. Once the daily doubles for that vehicle disappear favorably or not, I can truly enjoy the game without worry.

The only time now that I obsess about actually winning is when I manage the rare occasion of participating in a clan battle, though at least the usual frustration is reduced by the fact that I know most of my clan are competent tankers, and that we can confidently assume that we'll be following a good game plan. So even if we lose, at least we can say "well, we did our best" instead of "WHY IS THIS TEAM SO F**KING STUPID?! "

stop making me feel bad, I'm stuck between 53.7% and true 54%

i'm working on finishing my quest for the Maus, and i'll work on getting the IS for Pravadia, then i'll work on the KT and T57.

Maybe you should work on your E4 and E5 more so you don't bounce so many rounds.

/me runs away!

Oh hey, apparently my total efficiency finally changed to green. I assume bullheadedly using the Centurion to win matches had something to do with this..

Halfway to 53, slowly improving as I go. Hard to raise efficiency rate on lower tiers, though. Formulas and potential damage and all.

The stats don't belie how ridiculously hard MM is on my E8. It's not a tank that can survive being the last guy on the field, or even incompetent teammates. So after every hard-fought victory, MM throws me right into another meltdown match. I'm stick stuck at hard 50% on that poor tank.

The gains come from good T20-ing, M4 gold derping, and a last stretch of fortunate platooning with a certain OP Super Pershing.

Not sure what the average exp around tiers 5-7 per match is, so I don't know if I'm contributing decisively or not. There are "oops" matches, "just roll with it" matches, and matches where I contribute the highest exp by far often in excess of kill counts, thanks to a lot of shooting and aggressive scouting with the T20.

Meltown match, heh, that's a good way to describe my games last night. At some point I was wondering if everyone's skills went down the collective crapper. Heck, I even got Ace Tanker and Mastery on my M4 again in one game, and the team STILL lost.

Man, you guys seem to be doing fine .. my win rate on the E-75 has gone down from ~65% over 100 games to now ~55% over 200 games. My win rate is actually falling again..

Actually at this point I think if you've managed to more than break even (more than 50% win rate) on tiers 9-10, then you're doing pretty well.

That said... I have to wonder again how some of these players manage to get to the end tier units, given how blantantly BAD they're playing. Is the moon out tonight? Because honestly I can't think of any reason for such levels of lunacy in the games I've been in recently.

Heck, I was called an idiot for even suggesting the heavies take cover in the city in Fisherman's Cove!

I feel for you. My WR has gone from 51.59 to 51.43; I show up as yellow in XVM and it irks me to no end.

Having higher tier tanks have never been about skill. You can play badly for thousands of games and still get yourself a high tier tank, which only requires time, patience and/or money to get.

At one point during the course of the Darsovin/Touma/Me platoon, we had a 9-game win streak. Then two rough games in the American Tier 6, then the hilarious Westfield game where I got the kill shots in on two TOG II*s and a Top Gun.

Platooning does help... usually.

I know, today I personally witnessed an M103 literally drive out all by his lonesome at the beginning of the match, out to the field below the hills on Redshire. He was dead within 30 seconds of the start of the match.
