What is your average tier on the eu server?

first thing wrong is the 80% crew you will allways get out spotted

second thing is lack of knowledge not your fault,it just takes time 

try playing on the aus server tiers 4/5 hunt the bots watch the seal clubbers

once you get a 1 skill crew (sixth sense, sit aware and probs cammo)you can try out your new found knowledge on HK

It has been posted many times before . Crew skills do make a difference .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

First of all...I'm playing on the Asia server again so please don't lock my thread, Wasaabi.

 

Now to the topic.

I'm a bad player...a really really bad player(40 percenter) and I have a lot of trouble playing normally when most players on bother teams are camping and ready to wreck me the moment I go out of cover. 

So I figured that instead of trying to play normally, I'd be better off camping too(for now only...not a permanent fix)

And I tried that today but I realised that I suck at camping too.

Either I get very very low damage or I get killed because some invisible light tank spots me when I'm double bushed.

So how do I camp properly. And still do something. I don't like sitting around...waiting for a red to find me and then start firing. I would very much like to fire before the red gets to me.

Any advice?

 

 

My props for you for at least straight up admiting this is not a "how do I improve" thread. Its just asking how to camp better. You have already admit that you are a bad player and because you are bad you need to find a way to camp better. My friend you are in essense, what 99% of every arty player is lol. This thread have just summarize what every arty player turns to be and motivated them to become that. "how do I camp effectively" to answer the question, unfortunaly the only way to do that is to play arty. Since you are not asking how to improve and instead is asking how to camp recomending streamers is unecessary because none of streamer I know of have this kind of playerstyle. But even if you were asking how to improve, this forum is not designed to that. You cant learn much from the most of 50%ers who will be willing to answer your questions, as the 50% means you knows the basics, but still get carryied on by the teams instead of having impact.

 

I see that grammar policing is a thing in this forum, but as this thread and many other threads will make it pretty obvious, text interpretation skills definitlty is not a thing in this forum.

What is your ping on the EU server?

About 150

Same on the Asia server. I used to have really high ping on this server...that's why I shifted to EU in the first place but the ping is under controlled now so I'm back

Where do you live? 150 ping means you are geographically close enough to EU to play there.

Spend half an hour going through the WoT Wiki on game mechanics. https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Battle_Mechanics#Aiming

 

Don't worry if you don't understand it at first, but as you play try to see how what is happening in your battle is caused by the mechanics. Go back to wiki if you want to clarify things. 

 

This will let you get your head around the basics, vision, camo, penetration. 

 

After you get that sorted you can build other parts of your knowledge base, all the while improving.

 

Know that, in general, camping leads to pretty poor results, both in therms of win rate and damage output. 

 

To get good damage you are hoping the enemy slowly pushes into you. This happens very rarely. 

 

In games where your team does well you are too far behind to get much damage because the battle is moving away from you. Where your team does poorly then the battle rushes towards you and you are generally being shot at by multiple enemies who overwhelm you before you can do much damage. In both cases you have very little impact on whether it will be a win or a loss.

 

But good luck with it, hope you get the results you are after.

Just do what a majority of players do.

 

Spend one or two years as a noob and when you develop your skills, re-roll to become a unicum.

It's a pretty sad indication of the playerbase if I'm getting focused a lot more lately (just my feels - no evidence!). My recents have been ok compared to my overall rating I feel I'm getting more attention. Maybe try anonymizer again?

As to op's question....yeah not a great idea to camp most of the time just make sure u are double bushed when firing....

Yah, I would prefer to fly under the radar myself.

 

Please don't camp. It is not good for the game to have everyone camping all the time. Best to sometimes make a play, make a mistake and don't repeat it the next time.

 

Watching streams/youtubes will help with locations and assist in you developing your playstyle. Everyone is a little different in this regard.

I like it when the top tier heavies camp at the back because they’re too afraid to take a hit.  Then, once the majority of their them is dead, they decide to yolo, get focused by 6 guns and die whilst maybe doing one shot of damage if they’re lucky.
