I like to head to the windows in the north, the ones in the courtyard where you can shoot through either the middle road or middle-of-town road before committing to a side.

 

Its hard to judge what to do after without knowing the battle situation.

I have a 70%+ wr in the Cent 5/1

It is 100% possible in a Cent 7/1 to get above 60%

I have a 67% win rate in my Centurion 5/1    (but I have only played 3 battles so.. :-P) 

 

Ok, good news and bad news, or perhaps good news and good news depending on your point of view.. 

 

Bad news, I have repeatedly tried to convert a Battle Replay to a YouTube video and it just won't work as intended, for some unknown reason my replay client wont save the setting I want (I have de-installed my mod pack due to the game not loading and only being playable in safe mode atm).  But it keeps on changing the applied settings, I really don't want to upload a video with any players names showing but it keeps changing back to the default..  go figure.. plus my sound / microphone audio didn't work properly either (my voice kept fading in and out)   so after the third attempt I gave up..  some of you might be disappointed, others well meh..  

 

Reason for my willingness to offer my subtle tones to the masses was this..  

 

Spoiler

 

an absolutely massive game, and it should highlight what I feel the Centurion should be capable off constantly (and probably is in the right hands) and although the situation (map and 3-5-7 top tier 9s) were ideal, I still had to play well enough..  

 

and as you can see in the results page, it wasn't all red-line-sniping either.. 

 

Spoiler

 

What's more, it also jumped me to this.. 

 

Spoiler

 

and this.. 

 

Spoiler

 

 

and if you want to watch the replay : 

 

Spoiler

 

Sorry that I can't offer a quick & easy YouTube video..  

 

Currently I am still at around 82% and I am adhering to the pointers given by Pro and MFF, more pro-active and try to read the battle better, drop back and farm damage or push harder when needed.. 

 

Unfortunately straight after that battle I was really reluctant to play and had a real waste of a game with only 2 shots and 832 damage, got caught out by a Lorr. 40T and a Bat chat..  didn't end well for me..   

 

BUT, then I reviled myself and had a few good battles at around 3-3.5k and pulled back up to 82%..  

 

Now all I have to do is concentrate and hope for a bit more RNG luck and a decent map, surely I can push for the last 3% even by a minor few % per game.. 

 

I'll keep you guys posted.. 

 

(maybe playing pure vanilla helped..  I will keep it like that to see if that is the case.. )

I was at around 78% before that battle..   it's a combined of over 10K damage, it jumped me about 4 % , you need at least 3.5k for one % in a game per game scenario. 

 

My MoE mod isn't working so I don't know exactly any more, but it was around 2.4k to stay as you were, and anything over that adds to your % MoE. 

 

I'm about to log in and hope for a few good battles, maybe I can crack it before the weekend..

Nice job hopefully you can see that being more aggressive/close to the battle will reap bigger rewards. Of course that also means there's a higher risk of you dying but that's better than redline camping the entire game and also ending with no damage. 

 

I would highly recommend keeping the game vanilla. Much less distractions and you don't need to worry when you see a mass of red on your team and purple on the other.

Wot_Blog_Update:

 

Apologies for not writing for a while, I have been busy sorting out things I need to sort out here in the UK. I am still waiting for my PC to arrive and it will probably take me another week to get things set up so that I could play WoT , even though I am now sure I would want to. 

 

Honestly, I haven't missed it, I miss the social aspects, but not the game itself. I might give it a whirl sometime later, but I don't have that same burning desire I used to have two or three yeas ago, and with the current state of the game plus my skill/ability, I feel that I set my goals too high and can't achieve them, which just leads to frustration and a very much lowered willingness to play WoT. 

 

However,

 

Obviously because I am now in the UK, my time spent on this forum will be limited, although I do still like to read the comments and gain information, Lancaster's Law was always an interesting topic with regards to WoT because we all know that real-world physics and movement/sighting don't apply in WoT, plus, of course if you are sat in a tank and at be killed because of a mistake, I think you 'play' differently, but the cascade effect is real..  and all too often present in WoT. 

 

So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank those that have followed my 'blog' either because you liked or disliked it, as long as you read and commented, that was the goal, and also those forum users with whom I have had many in-depth and sometimes heated discussions, and I sincerely hope that at least a few players have in some way benefitted from reading the posts I have made. 

 

Special thanks go out to : Ezz, MagicFlyingFox, Neokai, Sir_Direkin and the whole PBKAC clan for making my time here more or less enjoyable, to Bol and Saffee for streaming and entertaining, to VaL for his help and especially Proloser for his constant understanding and friendly help over the years I have played WoT. 

 

There is no ill-feeling even towards those with red pens, or the game in general, you can either take it or leave it.. 

 

Although I will miss playing my Centurion 7/1 which will probably be one of the only reasons I start a fresh UK account if I can't somehow have my current one transferred. Which is the only thing I feel lessens my enthusiasm to play WoT in the UK, I have so many tanks/crews that are no longer available or were had-won promotions, competitions or grinds that their loss and non-availability due to the lack of an active transfer system, really downgrades my willingness to re-roll here. 

 

That be as it may, I hope you all can continue to enjoy the game we all once loved, and that WG can find the right way forward and solve the problems they have themselves have  instigated....

 

Happy tanking guys... 

 

thank you for your support.. 

 

I might not be back :-P

WoT_Blog_Update:

 

Hi guys, just thought I would pop across to offer a bit about WoT EU.. 

 

Admittedly I have only played 100 battles so far, I am not really into WoT any more, and again only with British tanks (the T85-M is on load atm..) but the differences in gameplay and MM are distinct. 

 

MM: Due to the larger player pool, it does seem to be more balanced between same tier and plus 1 more than 3-5-7 bottom tier, which helps a lot at tier 6..  not sure how it will spread out over the higher tiers but wait and see..

 

Playstyle: Well it is totally different, you just can't judge where the players will go, there seems to be scant regard for tactical positions and a real low Map awareness/game awareness at the lower tiers.  I have had no idea what some players intend to do and quite often they leave complete flanks wide open.. 

 

I have also noticed (going by the country flags displayed) that there are few Brits playing and it is mostly East Europeans with a splattering of Germans. 

 

It is still early stages and I haven't progressed above tier 6 atm, and I will probably keep to just the British tanks since I don't have Clan or Ranked battle ambitions. Losing several battles in a row is the norm and it is very difficult to read the battle with a large majority of players being sub 50%ers, being 0-4 down within 2 minutes is the norm with very few games going over a 5-15 loss or win. Also I have noticed there is lack of side-scrapping ability and more often a lone player will try to take on multiple opponents whilst not taking or using the best cover or tactic. 

 

Once my crews are fully trained and of a decent standard I am hoping to swing more games in my favour, and I will try to post a few more reflections once I have them. 

 

Enjoy your time playing on the SEA (ASIA) server, the grass certainly isn't greener over here..  (and that isn't just because of the summer heat wave..) 

 

EDIT: The EU forum is crappy too with hardly a decent post and little to no banter.  You don't realise how well you have it here..

that is why the meta on asia server is absolutely different from EU/NA/RU servers.

 

Whatever you learn from famous streamers/youtubers, you can't apply their thought process in asia.

 

asia server requires more finesse to dig out campers and also more thought in your gameplay

And yeah there tends to be a lot of noise about the toxicity over on na and eu forums too which we are mostly without thankfully. Altho we do get the odd pubbie blame game once in a while but thankfully they don't last long.
