Wow my impatience cost me  a 1k gold, 1 mil credits, a T-127 ... I feel like crying  :arta: All I wanted to be is getting going and start to get some game time in

Started the new account shortly after I posted this thread. I thank you but geeez my luck lol.

Well the good news is that after 3 days I have at least learned what real experience is ... Listed in the tanks profile however not until I wasted :hiding: the 300 gold I got for changing my password

on converting to free because that was the only way I thought you could buy modules etc (D'Oh)

Next after 3 days of just playing to get a feel of the controls we have made strides although very painstakingly and just acquired a KV-1

 

Many replies talked about the pain until you get to a tier 5 but now playing a few days it's once again got me vexed

I now know that if you play a tier1 tank you would face tier1-2 ... tier2 >>>tier2-3 ... tier3>>>tier2-3-4-5 ... tier4>>>tier4-5-6 yes?

Now with tier 5 you face up to tier 7 tanks ... Now for you vets this is just great (I guess) but it always seems that I'm on the low end of most of my battles

 

SO is this the norm???  Always behind the eight ball??? I tell ya NOOBS have it rough and nicely pad you vets stats :teethhappy:

 

 

 

 

Is being Bottom Tier the norm for newbies?    Yes

 

 

And it seems to be for tomatoes too.   Starting about tier 3 I noticed how seldom I was middle tier or top.   Since then there have been entire days at BT.   I look at a day where half the battles aren't BT as lucky days.


 

The last few weeks have you noticed all the threads by players with battle counts in the tens of thousands complaining about being BT all the time?   :confused:

Sometimes you're going to feel that WoT has a mean streak.    You're going to be right.

Everyone is always bottom tier.  I've never met a single player who felt they were top tier more than their fair share.

 

Cognitive bias.  Nobody notices when things run well, but when they face adversity, they are acutely aware of every second of it.

Knowledge is king and never more so than with wot. This noob has learn that fast. Thanks, will research not a tank but info such as this today

 

Right now, for me it's not about ratios etc it's about learning ... driving skills, maps, techniques, what tanks work for me etc.

 

I find noob ratio seekers here in this forum hilarious. All I want is to get good and be an asset to my team and not a liability. Ratio will come as my skills increase

I've seen first hand how just one skilled player can change the outcome of a battle, be it mostly in the lower tiers .... Oh angrytomato be my jedi master :trollface:

​Not sure what you mean exactly.

 

Your tank only hold so much ammo, you'll have to remove some o the other kinds to make room. Besure to swith the cost from gold to silver.
