It been a long road to improving my stats when you already have 15k battles under your belt(47% wr/ 700wn8). I wasn't a red Tomato by choice, it was just a lack of good hardware to run the game. Back then, I was used to playing with a bad computer most of that time and I barely get 2-10fps out of it. Which was a huge major impact on my gameplay. But sometime 3 year ago, i had enough and brought a new and better cheap laptop for that was able to play Wot at 25-30fps on average. My god, i didn't realize how much I was missing out so much back then. So for next 3 long years, i drove myself to push my overall out of the red tomato hell hole. And this week I finally push that sweet 50% barrier :deer:.

Spoiler

But I even still have problems with this laptop, there are a lot of times where I have to take long range shots, but the fps always drops as I zoom in or in sniper mode. So as a result, i been missing and wasting good shots I should of gotten often.

 

Now my next goal is to build me a new desktop in the next 4-5 months that can play Wot on full settings at 60fps or more(got to save up money).  And hoping that will push my recent into the purple easily and overall to blue. But i can dream. Heck I thought about rerolling countless times and Im glad I didn't :medal:.

 

 

Now cheers for the next 3 years of great gameplay(if the game still exist......).

Congrats! However, the better you get, the more you will have to carry, but someone has to do it.

Turning blue is much like painting a big f'n bullseye on the top of your tank

 

BTW: Congrats on your progress!

Congratulations! The fact that you always tried, even with the odds against you, is a strong testament that you'll get where you want to go.

 

Here's wishing you and anyone else that tries, no matter what, the best of luck in everthing that you do!

 

Take care . . .

Better equipment does help, but I don't think its gonna turn your recents purple. You need to master the art of positioning for that.

Congratulations! I'm right behind you on that. I spent 10k+ games mostly at tier 3, tanking while intoxicated, using a potato laptop. I started enjoying the game when my T15 crew finally got good enough to scout tier 5. I actually miss that and I'm now trying to get better. Hovering at 49.9 lately.

As long as your goal is improvement and you will take blame when you do make a misplay. You're already better than most players who blame everything on MM, rigging, cheats, ect, and don't want to admit when they are simply not aware of how the game works.

Congrats, and I usually ask anyone on my team who is blue or purple to get lit early, so arty has something to stare at and hope for.

Hear hear!! I'm in the same boat and have only now finally reached 48.5%. I wish WG would allow me to simply turn off or delete stats for the first 2000 games. Everybody is a potato then and that skews the results downward. Or altrnatively, only use the last 5000 games for the calculation, or whatever number is available >2000. I'm pretty sure my numbers would look a little better then, even though I'm just barely better than mediocre. Just my 2¢ worth.

Good on you man.  Never a bad thing to try and get better.

 

Just don't let it consume you to the point of rage.
