So it's just luck that some players runs at 60-70% winrate solo? 

yes you do get some teams which you cant do shit about, Hence I say 35% of your games are auto losses, does not matter what you do or what tank you are in, you simply cant influence the game enough.

35% off games are auto wins, you dont even need to play them, just go grab a coffee and the team will do it for you.

then remainder 30% is where your skill level determines your own winrate. Hence I always giggle when I see people blaming their winrate on teams day in day out. 

 

 

I'm not saying it's luck at all, but there are days where it just seems no one else on your team wants to play despite having clicked the battle button, almost like everyone expects to get carried (a lot of people up to and including tier VIII seem to have that mentality). Just the other day I was watching a Circon stream where he had a 30% session win rate, and that's a guy with a 66% solo WR. This happens quite a bit at low and mid tiers.

SPGs are definitely fun to play when you just feel like doing nothing but shit on people and don't care about WR% WN8 or anything.

 

Speaking of which, I unlocked and bought the M53/55 yesterday! :trollface:

 

Unlocked my M44 yesterday after a bit of grinding. Was the first time I saw my WN8 below 1k in a long while. Still on the M41 for now as I'm trying to 1-mark it before the 23rd. Started a session last night at 59%, played 10 games and ended with 57%... had lemming rushes and no one spotting every game (well we did have one game where we had a LT who knows how to play his tank, unfortunately he died too early). Really frustrating as I should only have needed about 5-8 decent games to do it, and I really don't want to be playing that more than necessary.

Bling it out (crew food, full Sprem) and go for splash damage (unless paper TD). 

 

Direct hits dont perform well with this arteh anymore.

If you are playing artillery without full gold ammo and food, you are doing it wrong.

Can't load gold on the M41, but I do use splash to get those pesky reds hiding in hard to reach areas. Only problem (aside from the no spotting) is the horrendous RNG I've been getting lately on top of the already bad dispersion. Yesterday I had no less than three shots land 60m away from where I was fully aimed, and those were outside of the dispersion circle. How lucky do I have to be to get three 2σ shots in just ten games? I should go and buy a lottery ticket.

 

Just a bit miffed that I was at 59% at 38 games, and went backwards in 10 games yesterday. Luckily managed to bring it to 61.5% (at 54 games) when I came home after midnight, and most of that was in one bad game where most of the team were a bunch of goons, but so were the enemy. Had several tanks rolling up one after the other trying to kill a friendly in a T67, taking a path where the T67 was still safe but able to proxy spot them, meanwhile he kept my side covered. It was a pretty strong position given the circumstances. Still, it's a shame I can't play two tanks at the same time: play a LT with mouse/keyboard, and play the M41 using a second mouse and a foot :D. That'll sort it out fast.

that might actually be something fun to try. Run 2 workstations side by side as you might need to independently control them. Setup a USB foot actuator to fire which I saw a few years back. Create a platoon and have double the impact

My M53 seems to be ridiculously cursed in its opening days. I'm at about 25% after the first 25 battles. Which is not the end of the world because lol WR% in arty, but whew, there was a lot of facepalming watching the teams I was on.

 

At this rate, it'll take me a thousand years to grind the top gun (I free-XP'd the tracks), even considering the numerous "for courageous resistance" bonuses I got during that streak of misery.

There must be some more of us mature game players that just play because they like the game and have a good talk, shoot the breeze with other like minded players on the server. Its only a game that you can play seriously or casually as you like. The game is made up of all sorts of people, some you get on with, some you don't get on with. Then there are the players that have bright or big ideas, some work most don't.

"Casual" is a fine attitude until you realise it's a team sport so playing "casually" impacts the other 14 players on the team.  If you don't want to be part of a team then maybe a team game isn't really the game for you.

Maybe i used the wrong word (casually) maybe the words seriously focused and the not so focused players is a better description prof.

You won't get too much more out of the old girl; IMO you'll need something more flexible to achieve 70+ unicorns if that's what youre hinting at

Casual could mean just playing random where not much "team" there. Just getting tanks, get bored with it, then grind another line. Unlike cw or WGL, where you must go for win, theres no points playing those mod/game if you dont chase win. In random, you can have another goal set, and the only teamworks element there is we all need to shoot red tanks.

I am now :P And wow, that firing arc and aim time; what a huge improvement! Also I was talking about MoE, not WR. Like Fram said: when solo playing arta, all expectations of WR can go right out the window. For improving (overall) WR I'd just play lights/mediums.

Arty win rates still matter but there tends to be less variation from the mean as compared to actual tanks owing to their reduced influence.
