Really? 

 

This could be the opportunity to go back and Ace the DW2!

It was so long ago when I player that tank.

 

Lordy I had a 54% WR in it. And that with the pre-potato laptop I was using. WN8 was only 690 though, I expect I was scaring people into my team-mates guns.

 

And yep i only have a first class, so now is my time.

Glad my mention of the DW2 raised some discussion. I also am a very average player, but managed a 60% wr with a 2400 wn8 in the DW2, although it was only over 25 battles. I actually also enjoyed the VK30.01H.
I went back to this line just a month ago hoping some of the other higher teir tanks (Tiger 2 & E75 - are you listening WG) will get some buffing along with the E100. I have not started the Tiger1 yet, need to get a little more free XP to upgrade some key modules before the grind.
Cheers

Probably extra easy now on ANZ as everyone who plays Tier 4/5 on ANZ expects DW2s to be :bots: so will probably get surprised if you angle one properly or sidescrape instead of parking side on and then reversing slowly across a gap.

dw2 got buffed a ways back, so it’s definitely not the horror it used to be...quite the fun tank but it’s no matilda, the pen ain’t brilliant and the armour is workable

 

Fair enough. It was an absolute nightmare when I played it.

Personally i found KV1-s with the non derp gun better to play in since its quick firing and more accurate the speed and the armour would really help you get a lot of damage. And its even better now that back when i was grinding it, back then i had to face tier 7.

Doesn't getting better stats mean you're getting better in the game? Obviously, I want a noob friendly tank that will help me get better at the game, and improve my statistics in the process.

You have yet to mention what type of tank you enjoy playing?

 

If you are going to try and get better at the game, you are most likely to improve in a class and a style within that class (because just picking a class does not tell us enough, when for example you have slow highly armoured heavies and fast heaviums)you enjoy playing.

It's easier to endure the learning process if you are playing tanks you enjoy.
For now, avoid SPG (too hard to influence the outcome)
Avoid TD (encourages campy play style)
Avoid LT (much higher skill floor required)
That leaves MT or HT depending on your preference.
Soviet is always a safe bet because to be blunt, the Russian based devs and huge Russian player base will ensure those lines are always "competitive" if not outright overpowered.

Hence my earlier comment.

Forget the tank, concentrate on learning the game.

 

The tank wont really help you get better at the game, though it might improve your stats a tiny bit. As soon as you play another tank then you will get the same old results. Forget the idea that a certain tank will help you much.

 

The fast way to get better stats is to improve as a tank driver.

 

Looking at your performance in HTs you don't survive very much, and you don't do very much damage.

 

Just focus on 2 areas, learn to use your armour and manage your health better than you currently do, and learn to do more damage.

 

Maybe start with the KV1. Lower tiers are slower and will help you learn the basics more easily. 

 

You currently average 2 penetrations per game. Aim to have a few days where you keep it at 3, then 4. To do that you will need to work on your shooting and managing your health better than you currently do. When to shoot, when to expose your tank, how to angle, when to hide. These are the foundation skills. They will keep you alive longer so that you can do more damage.

 

You will also have to learn to be a lot more aware of the map and where you need to fight.

 

One of my early "a-hah" moments was adopting a "how can I get one more shot of damage in" mentality. It made me aware of positioning and keeping close to the front line in attack on a winning team. It made me more aware of my allies and how to pull back to inflict a few more shots of damage when the team was folding.

 

Your little area of the map is won or lost based on which team has the best effective DPM.

 

Effective DPM has 2 components.

 

On the offensive side its how well you can aim and penetrate the target. Do you shoot well aimed shots? Do you miss a lot? Do you bounce a lot?

 

On the defensive side its how many shots you can make the enemy miss or bounce. If you drive out into the open you make it easy for them to shoot you - you make their effective DPM higher. If you only show them your turret and wiggle it you are making them shoot more slowly - they are waiting for easier shots, or taking half aimed shots then you are reducing their effective DPM.

 

Even a minor improvement will make you suddenly win those couple of games in 100 which are really close, where you lose by 100HP. Straight away your win rate will take a big jump. Keep improving and you will have more games which are relatively easy, and you will keep winning those marginal games. 

 

Its not sexy like getting the latest and greatest tank. But it will improve your stats, and allow you to grow into all areas of the game. Playing a certain tank will not do that at all.

Play a tank you like, doesnt matter if others get more wn8, enjoying a vehicle means you're more likely to actually use it, thus getting more experienced with the tank 1 on 1 ;)

This is my Opinion.

 

If you worry about your XVM you will not enjoy the game as you should.

If you worry about your XVM you will not dare try to play tanks that sucks.

If you worry about your XVM you will not play poorly until you learn to play well.

 

Remember: Your CREW starts at 100% and as you play along it grows to learn skills and perks.

                   You as a player also grows to learns skills and perks. You want to learn faster? Go Research and Read. Watch You Tube. Try this and try that.

 

But if you want a short cut............ Just play the OP T67 with Optics and Camo and Camo Skills until they nerf it or the tried and tested KV-1 or KV-2
