My recent went down a full point in Nov. Clawed it back to 49.93 finally this weekend. I am trying hard to not let the ebb and flow bother me but instead look at the month long trends.

 

I have got "50" fever. When you start getting close to that magic mark you want to hurry up and get there ;)

 

 

At one time I had a slightly above 51% win rate in 2015.  Then something happened and it's been falling since.

Apparently I forgot how to play.

Well the 907 match I weighed pushing down mid since I knew I was faster and had high DPM to deal with what was there. But after everything was spotted on the opposite sides of the match I knew I had the chance to push the back flank :D

Double that for me!  

 

Today I played by hitting battle and then I proceeded to roll my face across the keyboard!   And Province, is there a way to win that or am I just cursed?  Since it's been reintroduced I've had one winning game on it, it's like auto loose.

Same and then I put back to back 5 kill games together. Only bright spot in a long dismal weekend. Calling it a night now

It is a camp hard map.  Anytime you get aggressive, you die.  I've never had a moment on that map where being aggressive has paid off.  Not one.  Due to the smaller size of it, it is easy for TDs to snipe anyone clear across the map (East/West), so you have to constantly keep yourself in cover.  They took a horrible map, made it bigger, and made it worse.  

 

Apparently, back in May, Quickybaby did a review of it, but I can't find it on his YouTube channel...so, I don't know.   WoT's info on it is not much help either.  

 

I did find this guide called Map Mondays: Province

 

Perhaps it can be helpful?

 

I also found this YouTube video on it from that same link above:

 

I believe this was before they capped it to the mid tiers - V - VII?

Here are some general spots you can go on province that are pretty nice. I hate that map with a passion, so glad to not see it in tier ten rotation anymore.

Yeah seems the only way to win is camp and wait for your enemies to make mistakes. Even if you crush them initially the second you push you get crossfire from everywhere.

I know it was a campy thing before they took it out but I'll agree it's terrible now.  If your team as no one to spot though... which seems to happen to me every time (glass cannon TDs).

I don't know if this will help you but it helped me. I noticed I was getting repeatedly wrecked when I tried to lead my team. I would push expecting people to follow only to get wrecked.

 

So the last two games I went to good potions and then let the game flow develop rather then trying to push the game. If my initial spot was not productive, I moved to where I could get shots. I looked for others making a play that I could support rather then trying to push the play. Playing wing-man seemed to work much better than me trying to play lead.

That is what makes the difference from green to blue (wn8) players. You'll have to figure out how to exploit other opportunities that your teammates provide you. From blue to unicums the difference is consistently effecting your match in a positive way and creating those opportunities for your flank or team.

Which I've proven not to be able to figure out.  Best of luck to those continuing to try, and congrats to those that succeed.  :honoring:

Well I'm quite good at not leading a charge and really bad a reading the team only I can tell the match is gonna go south when the deployment has stalled and is going to give up vision and map control.

That's the thing.  I do very well with competent teammates.  Solo...is a whole 'nuther story, friend.  Which like I've said before, I just don't have fun.

Yeah the only way to survive playing solo is to accept you going to have 8 bad games for every 2 good games you get. There are only so many games where you watch your top teir tanks and tds play stupidly while the other team performce like the 1940s German Army in France before you lose all enjoyment of the game.

 

My God Streamers, PLEASE STOP telling people to fail up. Sick of 5000 game newbies in teir 10s doing less then 1000 damage game after game while I am left trying to stop the steam roll all by myself in my teir 8 tank!

Ah, the good old saying of throwing enough crap on the wall to see which will stick first.
