My WN8 is cringe worthy: 420. My WR is also cringy: 45.11%. I need a good low tier tank to help me get my WN8 to at least an average level. Preferably one that's:

Relatively easy to ace

Good at dealing damage

Nob-friendly. 

Right now I'm using the KV-1 with a derp gun mounted.

If your WN8 and WR% is that bad the implicit suggestion is not to find a lower tier tank to artificially goose your stats, but to find one to (a bit blunt here) actually learn to play the game with.

What is the tank you currently consistently play best at? What is the tank class that you consistently play the best at?

 

Once you figure that out then go and learn the maps, you may think you do already but really you don't.  You need to understand to start with exactly where to go in whatever tank class you feel easiest to play.

 

So if it is the KV1 heavy for example then know where you need to be on every map as a heavy to be most effective. Hint: it will pretty much never be at the back, even when bottom tier in a heavy.

 

Watch streamers and youtubers playing similar tanks on all the maps to get an understanding of the above. Sir Havoc, Zeven, 4Tankersanddog, Circonflexes, Sir Foch are good examples I like, there are others people will recommend. 

 

Understanding where you need to be at the start of the match most of the time is probably the best first step. There will be times when the rest of your team disperses weirdly at the start making the usual spot suicidal, in which case the best general advice is go wherever the team is mainly pushing and help it. 

 

After you really get the above stuff then you can see about learning other things like how to play support when not top tier, learning how to trade damage, vision mechanics etc. Etc. 

 

Notice I did not answer your question on a low tier tank? That is because your overall win rate, wn8 etc. Will NOT be saved by picking a tank. It will be saved by you becoming a better player. It takes effort not credits.

I'm sorry OP, but there isn't some magical tank that can give a potato unicum stats. if you are generally bad at the game, you are most likely going to be bad in most tanks that are required to contribute to a win.

 

WN8 usually requires the player to do DAMAGE. Something you seem to struggle with. You barely do half your HP in damage.

 

You seem to have more success around tier3 and below - try sticking to that for a while. Play on the AU server and you might do better against the bots. You might even find you enjoy the game down there. I know I would.

I do not recommend playing low tier tanks just to blanket your bad stats. Playing high tier noob-friendly tanks will benefit you much more. For example, playing the IS-3 will teach you the basics of how to trade effectively and manage your armour. Watching streamers/youtubers such as Quickybaby, LemmingRush, and Skill4tu and using their positions on the maps will also greatly improve your gameplay.

Your recents are still cringeworthy. You will need to get your recents ABOVE average to drag our overalls up to average. Even getting to average you will still be carrying all of your old stats. 

 

There was an online calculator that would give you an indication of how long it would take to improve your stats.

What do you consider as average? 50% 1000WN8?

Seems no-one is willing to answer your question OP.

 

Try the German tier4 Hetzer with the big gun,

 

The Russian tier4 SU85B running the 57mm rapid fire gun

 

The British Tier4 Matilda, but you will need to press the 'w' key and just drive towards the enemy and use your armor.

 

Play the OZ server running against bots, and you will have plenty of good games when top tier even if you are not the greatest player.

 

The PzB2 German premium is also still plenty noob friendly.

Stat padding and still having a sub 50% WR is even more cringe worthy than your current situation. Just don't go there. Everyone else provided good advice already. Don't take Bolyx's easy easy out if you want to avoid the derision that comes with being a stat padder. Would suggest giving the replay review thread a visit.

Still stat padding doesn't make you a useful CW player. Just ask [content removed].

i’ll bite:

t67, luchs, pz 1c, matilda, kv-1s (derp), cruiser iv, bdr, kv2, m3 lee (play as TD), m2 medium, m4, pz iv h, s35, p26/40, cromwell, crusader, pz iii e, vae, amx 12t, m2 light, cruiser iii, ke-ni, ke-ho, su76m, su85, su85b, sturmpanzer ii (i’ve tried to cover a range of tank types, there are others but I haven’t played them)

 

as you can see the low tiers are positively dripping with fun tanks that you can hoon around in

all of of these are easily grindable tech tree tanks that perform extremely well - by learning to make these work then you will hopefully also hone your skills which will help your higher tier games.

 

the bots on anz server  will not help you to learn how to play this game (quite the opposite), they are just there to help with the grind up to tier 6

 

also please heed the advice of the far more experienced and skilled players who have posted here, they do know what they’re talking about

 

ps: don’t use shit crews. never use 50% crews. if you can only afford 75% crews then grind them up to 100% before moving them to the next tank...this will take time, but it’s worth it

Or 13 answered the question, 11 pointed out essentially any low tier tank increases wn8 when the player knows how. One of the other 2 missed the real point being made with the responses..

I found using the KV-1 has really helped me learn how to play better and as a result start to repair my stats. Most maps have one main HT engagement zone so I'd head there and find a spot I could use for sidescraping. If I was isolated on the flank I'd move back where the base campers could get shots in to support. If not I'd play more aggressively. Avoiding getting derped by a KV2 is important, never poke against one unless it has fired less than 17 seconds ago. Learning weak spots is vital to save having to mash the 2 key, if I struggle against a tank in a battle I go look it up on WOTINFO.net 

 

I find Claus Kellerman and 4Tankersandadog to be the most useful YouTube channels for me, though the others are all helpful.

You can earn easy WN8 in any low tier tank, the premise is that you know how to play the game.
