If I choose to statmonger like a mofo and reset, do I keep my insanity reward ae phase 1 from frontlines like I keep premiums? And things like progetto from marathons?

Or 279e......

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Missions are reset, so those ones are gone, but the phase 1 - do I reset now and regrind, or reset later (or never)?

Without sounding harsh, but assuming on reset you'd be travelling at basically your recents +/- so you'd be resetting to move from being a 50%er to being a 53%er?

Exactly.

 

20k+ games and throw it away to start at zero is a huge waste of time.

 

Your stats will improve with time probably, so there is next to no point. If you really want to start at zilch, create an alt or something.

Even napalmer chose to keep his old stats...

I myself have toyed with resetting my acc to get the dank purpz.

 

But all in all it really isn't worth it, especially since everyone looks at recents anyway, which since people only reset for stats, is a pointless thing to do.

Resetting your account means all your researched tanks will be removed as will your credits and any free experience.  You will only retain gold and other items purchased such as premium tanks.

 

As far as clan wars reward tanks I suggest you contact Player Support for clarification as you did not purchase those.

no more account reset will be needed if the russians find a way to show your recents in game instead of overalls. But who really wants to be a unicum these days??? whats that even useful for??? XVM sniped? To find a good clan?? a good clan will only carry about your recents and per tank stats anyway. So resetting accounts to get purple is only going to backfire i believe.

Having META problems?

What about someone like me, who already has 16k battles yet stats are a load of trash? Is it too late to improve PR/WR/WN8? It takes so long to get anything done because of my battle count.

It is possible, but slow. I am a prime example of improving late in the battle count. And I still have shocking days where I play like a spud.
