My average damage is not very high and I think I know why!! I got 32,876 damage in 16 battles. That is averaging 2,054 damage pr battle. That is 5x more than my average is. The last battle I played I had 2,509 damage. As I was playing I would check my average in the service record. I never had a battle under my supposed average in these 16 games. My average never moved from what it was while playing, until the last battle I played (2,509). We lost the battle and even though my damage was 5x more than my average and I averaged 5x more than my average throughout the 16 games I played, my average went down one point. Now I'm no rocket scientist but I can tell you that the system that keeps track of the average damage pr battle is a fail.

Please feel free to explain to me why my damage went down. The average should adjust after every battle. And average damage has nothing to do with wins or loses. Damage is damage.

And speaking of damage, can you explain why my 430 U shooting APCR in the side of a tier IX light that is not moving does absolutely nothing at all. This game is going the wrong direction. All this game does is make people mad anymore. Wargaming has taken the fun out of the game and it has become nothing but a waste of time. Tired.

So its early and I haven't had my morning coffee yet. Basically math is not going to be my strong point right now. Just a shot in the dark, could it be because you have 26k games and stats move really slow when you have a bunch of battles where you didn't really do all that well hanging on your record. Now I'm not insulting you. Most players, the first ____ K battles usually suck and weigh down their stats for a while until they overcome the potatoness they started with.

Yup, my stats still suffer from back in the day when I thought HE was the best ammo to use ALL the time <.>

26500 x 477 = 12,640,500  total worth of damage  add 32,876 in your last 16 battles = 12,673,376 damage in 26516 battle... divide 12,673,376 by 26516 games = 477.95  average damage..  welcome to the reality of trying to increase your stats when having lots of games under your belt.. You went up .95  Just around the corner from 478..

Probably just a fluke it actually showed you one point down, just like in these forums a poster may one second have zero battles shown while they have 25K and the next post is correct.

 

But as KingofDragons says, there is just too much previous accumulated damage to make any quick change. I suffer the same thing. I play better now but trying to drag up overall win % or Win8 or damage, kill average etc, is  extremely slow. So don't worry about it. Just worry about doing decently in most every game you can.

Averaging in to over 26,500 battles you won't see any movement to speak of in 16 battles. The 2500+ battles in your T40 averaging 446 dmg, the 1000+ battles in your M3 Stuart averaging 120 damage, and the 1000 battles in your T1 Heavy averaging 138 damage, etc. do not go away quickly. Your recent winrate and WN8 are both well up so are obviously improving - that is the trend that matters.  Don't worry about your average damage, worry about winning the game at hand and enjoy the game. It has taken me a while to get my overall winrate to 50% after lots of painful grinding and poor play.

You can add a mod that (I think it's a mod) to see where you hit/penetrated/bounced off the tanks that you shoot at during a match.  You can also see where they hit you. You may want to refer to this information so you can see the angle that the round traveled to that 9 light.  Take a little time to check out tanks.gg for their 3D maps of tanks and you will get an idea of the amount of armor for certain areas on the tank.
