Hmm, I think I'll wait until the weekend to use that code.

Which is why people who've managed to get a good percentage while having a lower game count (like Irenicus) have it a whole lot easier by comparison.
On the flip side, if you have a large amount of games, a bad losing streak (or nights, shudder) will move your win rate a lot less, too.

True... except that I'm picky enough that even 0.01% changes bother me.

Except your win rate right now is enough of a buffer already, whereas it's an uphill climb for the rest of us not named Irenicus, Hei_, or Kamijou Touma. :P

High-tier draws are weird...

And then there was that game where we thought that the unicum clan platoon would go out and kill everything in sight, but instead ended up farting around enough that the best we could get was a base capture draw...

If you look at the team list, HAVOK and [-_-] got carried that game and not the other way around..

I wish I could tell who was a good player or not. I tried XVM a few times and it completely crashed my computer. I'll just accept the bliss that comes with ignorance.

This is because you're pretty much forced to play the game through a proxy server. I ALWAYS suffer massive slowdowns during the first few games as my connection tries to readjust to this, and even after I end a session, it makes using internet browsers like Firefox a pain unless I close said browsers first.

Well, that probably explains it. The internet connection I use blocks all proxies.

Think of it this way, if I suffer a bad loss streak -- and that's one disastrous night away -- I'm liable to blow a whole percent off my winrate. You can take a whole load more of frustrations without watching your stats go down the drain.

Also, the more I stat-pad, the more likely enemy artillery will target my poor tanks in battle. In the end it is still skill that matters, and a "50%er" who actually improved their game dramatically can rely on XVM-using opponents to underestimate them.

I'm much more concerned with my WN7 anyway. That's where, with the exception of gold derping (which guarantees troll damage), and with the adverse exception of my sometimes selfless and unacknowledged plays as spotter, bait, and first responder, my real contribution is counted. And based on that rating, I think I'm still worse than quite a few players on our clan.

And of course, I cannot translate that individual medium-playing skill to serve the clan's cause in companies. There is just not enough...freedom...there, either because of the fewer number of tanks, the requirement to follow orders, or because the goddamned medium-killing KV-1S are everywhere.

I still want to cross over the mysterious Hei's winrate though! And leave Touma behind XD.

Gosh, tonight was like it was a weekend. Idiot teams and M4 derps everywhere, leaving me with a 25% win rate for the session.

I ragequit before it got worse.

Efficiency/WN7 and Irenicus: You're actually in the top five of MUP...

http://www.noobmeter.com/clan/na/mup

I'm not sure how I got to where I am on that list, considering that I don't feel like I'm getting more caps and damage than other people.

And as a minor note, people running XVM will also focus-kill you if you have a good performance rating...

I would probably do better if I focused on a few tanks, but that really bores me after a while. I played only the T32 for 95% of my games today and I could hear my other 120 idle crew complaining at me.

Though I do need to drop a project or two. The AFKPanther I don't think I'm in the mood to work with; I can be a lightly-armored sniper in several tanks that are of similar maneuverability or better-armored or not so freakin' huge, while also not getting scout MM. And the E8 and Cromwell are more fun to drive. My brief adventure in the S-51 reminded me that SPG play is not a good use of my style. I have a feeling that if I get through the grind to the IS-8 that I'll move the IS-3 crew into the IS-8 and put at least some of the KV-2/S-51 crew, which has comparable skill levels, into the IS-3.

Sorry Pen3, but tonight was AWFUL for me. My 24 hour average WN7 was 1490. My total average across all battles is 1890. I'll make it up... somehow

No need for excuses, everybody has one of those days. I am still learning how to play in high tier games anyways. It was a pleasure to be able to plat with you for the first time and it was fun.

Played about 8 games and these 3 are the best ones for me.

I'm very close to the bottom. Truly disheartening.
