13,846 wins

13,600 loses

246 draws

 

After starting this game account in 2013 I played without knowledge of the rules or mechanics. It was fun until the tidal waves of loses brought on by my own lack of skill and knowledge pushed me away for a couple of years. After coming back to a few thousand games culminating to a 45%ish WNR, I was faced with an uphill climb that I only pushed towards this last couple of years.

 

As you all know, after 20-25K games, it takes a lot to make the needle move, but it did move. Doing more things right then wrong, slowly I made it to 50% and now beyond. Youtubers, general guides from WOT and personal initiative were keys to making this game fun and winnable!

 

Thanks to all of you that platooned with me, helped me along the way, offered a friend request or just chatted in-between battles to share a compliment or helpful hint. Ive heard it said many times and its always been true, in every battle you've been in the only constant is you.

Went through something similar myself as I didn't really understand the game until around 10k games or so. I def understand the feeling of accomplishment, well done mate

Congrats man, Little tip for you or anyone else trying to get to 50%+ that i practice myself:

 

If, during your play session, you end up going 0/3 in any tank. Stop playing it for the night (or at least play something else for a bit). Keeps you from going tilt.

Congrats OP.  You did well.

 

My win-rate was 41% with around 5K battles.  Proud now to be  >48% now.  It is so hard to move the needle when so deep in the hole.

I hold re-rolls in contempt.  It is for the weak-willed nothing but a  cop-out to pad stats.

Grats OP.

As long as my games keep playing out like they have for the past week, I, myself, might be reaching that goal by the end of next week.

I totally get your frustration bud. The bad patch will pass!

Nicely done! This is not in any way an easy game, so pulling it up to 50% is no job for a slouch. Considering 45-47% seems to be the average in 2019, 50% is nothing for anyone to sneer at.

Congrats! I was a 43%er when I sat down and realized that I was terrible and would have more fun if I worked to improve. I remember well how good it felt to finally pass the 50% mark. I just recently broke 52% overall, it’s been rewarding to watch it slowly climb.

Keep up the good work :)

Aint that the truth. After 35k battles, i have climbed to a happy 51 percent. Yes, the needle barely moves now. Good job.

Good for you. You know you became above average at 49 or so, right?

Congratulations, I imagine I’ll break 50% myself in 10,000 games or so. Or my win rate will stabilize at whatever the trigger rate is.

No reason to pay attention to overall WR at all, especially if you have more than 10k games, use recent WR and other stats (over 1K battles or so). If you care about overall stats for some odd reason, the best option is a new account. That said, both overall and recent stats can be padded with a few tanks or by playing lower tiers, so it's important to improve performance in tanks that would be used for clan activities, if you want to get the most from the game.
