Major, we must be kin.  When I started playing WoT I had lost my job, had no money, and saw an infomercial at 2:00 AM for World of Tanks.  Was living with my sister, and she let me use and old POS laptop she had almost discarded.  Downloaded the game and started playing, just to have something to do.  I played almost 17K battles before I even got my first tier 7, the T29.   I was a 400 wn8 46% complete tomato.   Joined a clan, and ground my first 3 tier tens on a standard account (omg that was painful).  After all this time, I'm up to 49.5ish w/r, wn8 about 1225.  Some days I can have a 70% w/r and wn8 of 2k - 3K, depending on what tanks I play and whether MM likes me or not.  I have traveled your road.  So, hats off to you my man, well done, and keep up the fight.

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

 

BTW: Congrats on your progress!

 

 

When you cross the 2k overall the focus goes up much higher. MUST kill 2k win8 playerzzzz

Don't stop at 60fps/hz.  75, 100, 120, 144, 165, 200, 240 are all in front of you! :)

 

Actually I think someone was saying WoT hard caps at like 115 or something FPS

It does, but they're removing that in the patch with the graphical update if I recall correctly.

your profile picture not withstanding, congrats.  us green people, while not immediately targeted by arty, are often a little higher on the food chain.  I'd have a good chat with your mortuary division....

Also just one more note, T30 is my favorite tank to play and it completely unruined by old terrible gameplay. In fact, i didn't get t30 till after i got this laptop. Holding at almost 1000 battles and 59% wr. And t-54 is a good example of a tank I owned that is completly ruined by old low fps gameplay at 39%wr, 450 battles and 387 wn8. Embarrassing, i know

Oof reminds me of my experience with this game. I started off at 300 wn8 in first 2k games. I was using a laptop giving me 16 fps max on minimum settings. Now 3 years later, I have a better laptop (not really but 60 fps on min setting is better than 16 fps and I'm much better than I ever thought I would  at this game. GL OP.

Started on a Surface 3 at 20-ish FPS on minimal settings and 100 ping (in Alaska). Bought a used tower and am up to mid-high 30s FPS on high. Got a new GPU coming next week I expect will get me well above 60 maxed out.

 

Which will remove all my excuses.

It's bit of fresh air to see someone actually trying instead of blaming others or some bs conspiracies. Congrats.

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......).

 

 

Congratulations on attaining a goal, that always feels good.

 

When I first started I played on my old laptop that would get between 20-30 fps, I found that doable but I have no idea how you could play with less than that :)  Kudos to you!

Keep going! Myself I have made it to green over all and now am shooting for blue. But yeah the carries become more on you and the rage from dead tankers starts to focus on you. I have gotten a thicker skin from it and now laugh at dead tank rage purps and tomatoes alike.

Congratulations!  I recently crossed over that mark myself (and continue to oscillate over it).  Positioning, as the good players say, makes all the difference between consistently winning or losing.

I just upgraded my computer a few weeks ago. I bought a GTX1060 and I am getting a solid 125fps with pretty much everything maxed at 1080p. Unfortunately I haven't upgraded the monitor.

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 . . . 

 

Good to see you PAV!
