I've been playing WoT for two months now and i must admit still a newbie with 1,500 battles to date however I can feel i'm improving in the game overall and working hard trying to learn the game mechanics by reading forums and watching good tanker's youtube channels showing their replays so i can pick up a few tactics here and there how to play particular tanks and how to fight against it, right now i'm at 49% wr up 2% from 47% (25 win away from 50/50) after transferring from NA server, i can say ping is much better now therefore i can get more responsive games as split second can easily at times mean life or death so i like to take every small advantage i can get... my goal is to reach and maintain 52% wr by the end of the month or even until mid Nov (note this is something you don't want to rush as it can easily goes south in a simple series of bad lucks in a day).
Ok this thread is about how to improve your win rate, based on my experience as a newbie in the game we started quite aggressive... we like exploring the game (doing incredibly stupid things) and trying many tanks as much as possible whether by unlocking them and play them as stock or buying premiums only to find out they are not good or there's a steep learning curve to get use to its play style end result is your wr plummets.
One of the technique i would like to share to improve your win rate is identify which are the best tanks at your disposal that you are comfortable playing with and play them, play them a lot until you reach your desired win rate plus extra win buffer before trying and experimenting with other tanks you barely know.... for example you earned extra 4 victories, then play your other least familiar tanks until you gain net losses that is enough to cover your win buffer and don't go further down and play again your staple tanks so your win rate stays and gain you some buffer victories again.
I only play 100% random matches and my best tank right now is KV-1 at 60-61% wr and the Churchill, if i need some victories these are the tanks i rely on, i won't play any other tanks until i got enough victories in the bank to cover for possible losses. At tier 5 battles these are the top tanks and you can really dictate the out come of the game hence i'm having some success. If you're on a losing streak even in your best tank that's a good indication to quit playing, give it a few hours or even a day if you like until the kids/noobs are gone to bed/school :D do something else to refresh yourself.
If you have anything to contribute to this thread, please feel free.
Alright see you in the battlefield!
Also i would like to add, there are many noobs don't know the idea of assault and encounter battles, luckily in patch 8.0 you can disable them in the settings menu! --- if you're fed up with noobs try disabling it so you only only get standard battle.... me i had to disable encounter as lots of stupid players who will go early cap only to be killed because they just sit there waiting to be picked up rather than firing their guns from better positions, it works sometimes but not most of the time!
PS. Improving wr not for bragging purpose but for learning and to bank enough number of victories to grind higher tiered stock tanks without risking your win rate sink to bottom.
