I think this will help you learn to carry in all types of tanks, good and not so good.  Think I'll try this too.

Finally got to only Ace tanker, 1st and 2nd class in the garage (217 tanks played - 78 remain in my Garage), and yes it tends to make you a more flexible player, but I am still terrible at playing Arty

 

Ace tanker 139/217

1st Class 58/217

2nd Class 20/217 (see list below - BOLD = in Garage today)

 

  1. Light                    AMX 38, ELC AMX, WZ-131, Type 5 Ke-Ho, T-50
  2. Medium               M46 Patton, STA-1
  3. Heavy                  WZ-111 model 1-4
  4. Tank Destroyer   Alecto, Renault UE 57, Somua S-40, T28

     

  5. SPG                    M37, Sturmpanzer II

     

  6. Premiums           Dicker Max, SU-100Y, TOG II, Type 64, Type-62,
                                      M3 Stuart LL (sold this tank a long time ago - it was my first gift premium and I didn't understand why I couldnt run US crews in it LOL)

Still working on this project, it kills my Stats, but what the heck :smile:

Just bought the Chaffee and rocked it for Mastery in the 2nd battle, T7 battle.  Sometimes the ones you think will be hard just come to you.  This is a great tank.  Im going to roost all over you Sherby!

56 mastered out of 83 so far.

As far as I'm concerned, Ace Tanker Mastery badges don't exist in this universe.  If I happen to achieve one, I just consider it like winning the lottery - a gift from the unknown powers above.  :)

 

The reason is, I run XVM and I very infrequently get WN8 scores of 9000+ (my average WN8 is 540) and still only get the 1st Class badge, not the Mastery badge.  If I can't get Mastery for my absolute best games in these tanks...  then they simply do not exist.  :)

 

I hate to see you give up so easily on an achievable goal. I really recommend you go to wotreplays.com or another site like vbaddict. At wotreplays web site, you can sort replays by individual tank, map/game mode, so that you can see what other people are doing on tanks that you are having trouble in. You can also sort by most damage, most xp, most kills etc. so that you can see how the best games are played in different tanks, and learn to adapt your playstyle and emulate what you see there. I'm nowhere near the league as some of the other posters in this forum, but I have a few Ace Tankers and had quite a few from back when my WN8 was in the 400's. You can use these tools to improve your gameplay and to start enjoying this game as a winner more and more. 

Another thing you can do is to post replays (links to your replays) here on the forums even of your good games, and ask for advice. I have done that in the past and gotten critiques that have helped me to think about more elements of gameplay than I was realizing existed.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean?  There are 202 tanks all together and you have received ace tanker in 126 of them?  Your goal is to do all 202?

 

297 tanks total in the game, give or take a few premiums. But the number in your stats list is Mastery badge to tanks played.

It's impossible for me.  I have 129 Ace tankers & 229 tanks that I have played.  If you delete the ones I got rid of I still have about 190 tanks.  I don't play arty but, I have few that I put camo on & I am not out of garage slots so, they stay.  Most of my non-Ace tanks are arty.  I play 2 arty (very rarely) the French premium & FV304.

Oh well, next challenge.

Makes sense. More people play the OP popular tanks so you have more people to compete against.  Took me forever to get my Ms on the KV-1S, Hellcat and FV304.  I have a ways to go before I catch up to these guys.  Good luck everyone!

 

View Postweesh, on Aug 20 2014 - 20:29, said:

126 is a bunch.  

 

I have a theory:

The terrible tanks are MUCH easier to get Ace Tanker in than the OP ones.  

 

Does this match your experience?  

 

 

Haha this is sort of funny.   I have 46 tanks and the K-V1s is the ONLY one I have a ACE in !   I have been playing it the majority of my matches to try to get my win-rate up .. gone on a losing streak with it the last 20 battles I've been below 40%.

 

Half way derail...  How can my performance be going down with this tank ?  I was at nearly 58% win rate with 200 battles ant I've dropped a hair below 55% after 530 battles meaning my last 330 are even lower than 55%?

 

At the same time my W8 is gradually going up from super terrible to a little below average.

 

The only thing I can think is that my increased focus on damage is costing my team wins.  I think my team won more when I made slow suicide decisions to fill up gaps on the map where I'd slow the progress of mutiple enemies with only a few shots and some spotting as well as delay involved. (lots of tracking too(

 

The WG system rewards more experience for things like spotting, and critical hits like tracking ... While ACE is only a one game thing and certainly you need to do a lot of damage to get it, the experience you get for spotting also factors in..... maybe people more W8 focused don't get enough of the other types of xp ?

That makes a lot of sense to me. But my only 2 medals are with Wolverine and KV-1, which makes no sense. Weird.

actually it's about play style and a bit of luck. I struggle with SPG's and TD'S.
