Not gonna lie, I have never really been amazing or good at this game, but I was at least decent.  A couple of weeks ago, when I got back into the game after a long break,  I would have been able to get 1,100 plus dmg consistently in tiers 7+ (I know it isn't good). But now, I can barely scratch that 700 dmg mark if at all. It feels as though I am getting worse at WoT everytime I get back. Is it because I need another break? Have I lost my touch? Do I need to watch MORE videos? Plz halp. 

 

Thanks for checking this post out!

Is this a bad alt account? Cuz this one never did what you claim.

looks like you rushed up the tiers and bought some T8 prems, thinking the game somehow was going to get easier to win if you could just make it to the next tier

winning gets easier when you learn 2 play. pulling red stats in low tiers won't prepare you for high tiers

 

and rokinamerica is right, you've never averaged 1100 damage in T7, looks more like less than 600 per game and about 800 in T8-T10

It takes time after a long break to relearn the maps and how to face new tanks. I came back after over a year and my stats dropped so bad I lost my teal overall. It happens, don't stress it and start playing slow. You will get the hang of things again if you give it time.

I actually got those prems for PC because I had the IS 6  during my xbox days (and primo because I love sabaton). But yea, now that I look at it, I guess I have always been bad at this game (or at least the PC version which still doesn't make sense). I guess I am just salty because in my old xbox days I just did better with the same tanks I have in PC. Perhaps its just excuses, but I will try to get better, slowly if I must. 

 

Thanks for shoving the truth in my face, stay chill have fun in your games!

Post some replays.  Maybe some of the purple people eaters can shed some insight on what your doing wrong, etc..

You are not getting worse, everyone else is getting better.

Solely based on my own experience, I highly doubt this is the case. Because of how little I play the game nowadays, my play has deteriorated quite a bit; yet, I am still able to comfortably maintain 2200+ WN8 recents without much effort. I'd say that the top players of today are definitely better than, say, the top players of 2014, but the playerbase as a whole hasn't improved much at all.

You cannot take breaks. I take em, long ones, short ones, and just decline. You need to know every inch of every map, every depression, rubble pile, everything. The second you stop playing non stop, you lose much of this. And then new tanks come, you don't have em.... your old crews are great, but in garbage tanks/nations, etc.

 

Fun, but have to play constantly to stay good.

Given the nature of power creep, if you're using the same tanks as before then they have probably been outclassed by the newer tanks.

 

EDIT: Not to mention, console users aren't always the brightest of the bunch. That's why they're using consoles.

My thing is I know I'm getting worse eyesight, reflexes, I have a hard time telling where the tank is when it's blending into the background then the other guy gets of snapshots like he's been aiming at me for weeks ,the other night I will be the first to say I was playing bad but some of it all so goes to just not caring anymore not like I use to

^^^ What he said.

Upload some of your replays to wotreplays.eu and share the links, I'd be happy to give some advice. Alternatively, if you want to send me a message in game I might be able to help you out in a platoon sometime. :)

Now that you've faced the truth...reboot go back to low tiers untill you can pull blue stats. That's your only salvation, back to basics.

Pretty close. I mean they are doing less than half their average damage and their W/R has plummeted.
