Is there really a legitimate way not to care so much about winning? I'm not a person who needs to pubstomp every person but having a decent run would be nice instead of the consistent loses thanks to people making poor choices.

I make my own from time to time but I don't know, ever since about a month or so ago things have gone down hill, I hit 53% win rate than dropped back down to 52% after a horrible night, now I'm sitting in the same position once again after consistent lose after lose after playing WoT for a while, trying to claw my way to scrap up what victories I can but all I can do is shake my head at how bad some people play this game. Granted maybe playing the ISU-152 isn't the best choice at this time considering the BL-10 trolls me hard with track shots.

On the side note, does anyone want too platoon with me sometime? I did it once a little while back and it's great to work with another person who knows what they're doing even if things go bad.

Well I'm done venting for now, WoT just really knows how to be a mood killer.

it has taken me a year to grind thru the BL10!  it took mny many months and months to get thry the ISU152, and when i finally managed to stomach thru it, they introduced tier 10 TD's so it will take me (at the rate i went) two + years to do that 704.
the BL1 is a  horrible POS.
i hear you!

alright, that sounds fun

me and a friend was platooning he was trying to win a battle in his D max  so I wanted to bring my d max as well try to help him

we failed to win a single match.

I think so far he has won 2 battles in his d max since hes got it

i hear you!

I don't blame the tank itself as it's quite the terror most of the time, but sometimes the gun likes to be herp derp even with an average 284 pen and 750 damage. Bouncing on everything and getting those low 600 rolls deflates it but when you hit someone for 900+ a smile comes across the face.
I keep telling myself that it'll get better once I hit the 704, I didn't have this bad a time in my SU-152 derping around which is kind of funny.

Ouch that's pretty harsh ... I remember when I got my ISU-152 I had won three battles at the start than everything started falling apart lol.

Well, caring about one's stats either leads to improvement or insanity resignation.

Regarding the ISU-152:
I tend to attempt sniping in the ISU-152 for the first third/half of the battle, fail horribly at it more often than not, and then switch to assault gun mode once enough stuff is at 50% health. It works more often than not, the gun is accurate enough at <300 metres. I also dislike tier 8 games in this tank because most of its penetration is wasted.

I feel flattered ;)

My monitor burned out so I haven't been able to play. As soon as I get a new one, I'll send an invite. You're good with the 152, but it helps to have support in it. And obviously pubs lack that. BTW, if the game is frustrating you then take a break and do something else. Not worth getting bothered over the idiots.

Until then. Good luck!
