Well to be honest, according to your stats you are worse than server avg in all areas. Your top two tanks are the T29 with a WR of 43% and the M4 with a WR of 45% with 1400 games between the two. You have no idea how to play these tanks (I can't play the 29 either) but yet you play them constantly. You do good in the M41 (over 50%) but you do not play it near as much. There are a couple of others but you are not sticking with the ones you do okay in. Stop bouncing around and play tanks at which you do okay or somewhat excel in like the T-150. Once you get good in it then move on. I don't play tier 10 hardly at all because quite frankly I suck in them so I stick to tier 8/9 with a few lower thrown in once in a while. I absolutely sucked in the E100 but did well with the E75. I sold the E100 and kept the E75. I am going up the IS-4 line now. Find the tanks you excel at, read the guides that are out there, watch the unicums that have the tanks you are playing and watch what they do, if you are not ready for a tank then don't play it or learn to play it.
Currently my highest, best performing tier tank is the Centurion 1 if I remember my stats are around a 49% WR in it. My WZ-131 with a 47% WR, and my SU-152 with around a 50% WR in it, my T32 has started to improve. My T29 is my favorite tank, I know how to play it, and can get a decent game in it, but I can't get a decent win or team in it. (Many times I find my T29's allies are almost immediately wiped out and I am left alone being flanked, yeah, can't win against 11 tanks alone.) My KV-1 has a 51.56% WR, the M41 after a while started to grief me and I started losing a lot in it, team's expect arties to carry them, and that is not possible. Don't tell me, for the love of god, don't tell me I don't know how to play my M44, and don't tell me to take the KV-1S because I hate it.
You cleverly missed out on the tanks that I am currently playing, and have good WRs in them. The tanks I currently play are listed just below my stat-signature.
My M4s WR comes from a time when I was still below 2k games. I only just recently bought back my M4 Sherman this Saturday. Never sold my KV-1, just don't play Tier 5 often and more play Tiers 7 - 8 and soon 9 when I get the M103. I'm at nearly 8k games, I should have had around atleast 2 tier 10s by now. But I had a halt at Tier 7 for a long time and really only just got my T32 back at 5.5k battles, and then I worked to my Cent 1 and didn't care much for Tier 9. But as I play more and more, I find I cannot be satisfied knowing where I lie in the tier world unless I get to Tier 10. My average damage also only just started going up since I started improving. (less lag and better FPS = better game-play = better stats). Some of the tanks you mention I haven't played because I sold them back at 5.6k games. I sell tanks, but only some due to the need of garage slots, and no, I can't afford premium or gold, so I can't buy garage slots, barracks slots or premium time or premium tanks.
I know it sounds like an excuse, but thats how it is. I'm only now starting to improve, and I am disappointed that my WR dropped this week, and I hope to better that at some point after my break from WoT.
