OK so I have been convinced that I need to stay in the lower tiers and out of the hair of the experts of the game so have sold off all but 1 of my tier 8 tanks (I'm keeping the Super Pershing as I seem to do OK with that now as long as I follow directions others give me in the game).  I have now purchased some low tier premiums (III to VI - the VI's only because I like the tanks - no other reason) and will start training crews and doing battle at those level's and stay there.  If anyone has any comment about my 2 replays from yesterday happy to hear them.  I am teetering between camping and going too hard too early but still leave myself exposed when I get tunnel vision.


 

I'll have to think about joining a Clan (good or bad idea?) but none of the English speaking ones I have found are interested in me as yet (to be expected with my stats :) )


 

Cheers

David

Send an application to MGM then. I have an alt there and won't mind teaching you if you wish. ( though I'm not that good of a player by any means)

​Thanks ForbiddenSabre - application sent.  My recent Win/Loss is down to 35% - I seriously doubt there is anyone worse than me out there :)  I've acquired some Tier I and II and actually got the top damage and experience in a Tier II battle tonight but I also get a lot of 0's

Why oh Why?

 

Nobody said you had to sell anything, and why did you open another thread?

 

WATCH THE 4TankersAndDog videos I suggested, watch ALL of his Tanking with Science videos, LEARN the game mechanics..

 

You really have to invest some downtime into this game, figure out which tanks you prefer to play and watch related videos about them (not QB/ Jingles) there are some very good non mainstream youtubers !

Hope you can improve and enjoy the game more in the future!

Considering that your Tier 8s are all premium tanks, why would you even sell them ? 

Wut ?

Because it has become very apparent that I will unlikely be ever good enough to play in anything above Tier V or VI at best so I may as well recoup some resources to pay for some experimentation in the lower tiers!

So how useful was your comment or do you just like trolling?

MY god. Never sell off your premium tanks. I was a tomato for the longest time (maybe 3k battles). I used to be horrific. i had an IS6, rudy, su-122-44 and superpershing then and my stats are in red in them (recovered the SP somewhat recently). Check me out in wotlabs (http://wotlabs.net/s..._average_tanker).

 

I am green/ yellow in most of my new tanks and orange in some. i researched up to tier 10. I am not the greatest player, but i am not the worst. And that did not happen by playing lower tiers only. The "meta" in the lower tiers is very different from the "meta" in the higher tiers. In the higher tiers the gameplay is more thought out and hence gives you time. in the lower tiers the yolo is real.

 

Stick with it and you will get better. The most important thing is to know the maps and the limitations of your tank (do not try to circle someone in the hellcat. i know i am stupid!).

 

In addition to the 4tankersanddog channel on youtube as recommended by Sir_British, i recommend you to watch zeven on twitch.tv. My march from red to orange and onwards started with me following him.

 

It takes time and you will become good. send me a friend request in game and i may try for some training sessions with you if the timings match.

 

PS: Try to raise a support request for getting back the premium tanks. Never sell off your premium tanks.

I don't think they're trolling but rather surprised and shocked that you would actually sell your tier 8 Prems and you can't get them back unless you send in a support ticket or buy them back with real money. Personally, I am surprised as well lmao

Yeah, I got that with the original response.  I've not been playing long enough to know better.  WoT keeps sending me messages that I can get them back, they just don't tell me how.

So I only get 1 back.  FV4202 or the T34 B?  Stats were 51% from 68 as opposed to 45% from 81

The tanks you played showed the Skorpion G. Did you not sell it?

 

If you sold it, get it back. It is the best.

 

Out of the ones you mentioned the T34B is better imo due to good turret and good gold pen meaning it is good in tier 10 matches. but the hull is cheese, it is slow and reload is long so take care of that.

 

You can also use it as crew trainer for american heavy crews which are good tanks.

You can get it back from garage IIRC. Go to store ingame and under the tab with all the vehicles, there should be a little drop down bar with an option called 'recover with credits'.

Good man dhi.  You may not be in the right place to play them now but if you work on it you will be and you don't want to be spending cash again.
