Hello, let me set a prefix on this entire thread, it is not to complain or whine about anything, simply to ask for advice.

 

I understand I am not the best of players, but I do like to think I am a halfways decent t28P and T30 driver.

 

How can I win more? I've found players are usually incapable of dealing their own HP in DMG, so how can I win more? I deal my HP in DMG every game. I'm in the top 87% for dealing/assisting damage in my T28P, yet my WR still sits at around 52%. How can I get it higher?

52% is actually pretty good.

anything over 50 is good in this game. 

51+ is better...

average I think is around 48-49%

At that amount of battles you are doing very well.  Keep watching the unicum replays/tutorials and critique your own replays and you will continue to get better.  My other advice is to advance normally up the tech tree - don't buy a tier 8 premium till you're ready for it and/or need a credit maker.

There's a lot of variables to winning in this game. Despite what Wn8 farmers will tell you, sometimes only doing damage will not automatically lead to wins.That being said, if you want to win more than 52%, i'd recommend finding a good clan to hang around and have a few players show you the ropes. As others have said, 52% is above average, but you seem to wait to be higher than that. If you can get a player with a Purple Winrate to show you the ropes, even better.

First thing's first, you're doing quite good in your T30.  If you stay at that level in general, you'll be doing far, far better than most people playing this game.

 

T28 Prot and T30 have very similar playing styles.  You're doing something in your T30 that you're not doing in the T28.  You have to analyze your games in both of those tanks to find the difference and correct it.  We can't help out with that.

 

Assuming you find and correct the difference, in the end the T28 Prot will probably end up with a lower win rate than your T30 because it's slower.  There's only so much you can do in slower tanks.

I would suspect people with very high W/R's play a lot of meds and lights, maybe fast heavies, big slow tanks are very inflexible.

Most competitive clans dont care about recent winrate, keep focusing on high tier WN8 and damager per game. Personally my recents in the past few months fluctuated anywhere between 51-60% depending on tanks I play and winning/losing streaks.

You've only played 2000 battles and you're already better than most. So whatever you're doing, just keep doing it. A lot of the improvement beyond the basics comes from experience, you try different things on different maps, some things work others don't, and so you keep refining your play. After every match just take a brief moment to sit and think "what could I have done better?", because guaranteed this IS something (many things) you could've done better, I still do this. Simply reflecting on your mistakes I think is the best way to improve.

I used this stuff to get better at the game.  I used a lot more material, however, I think what is included in this link will help anyone who is interested in learning more about the game to get better at playing it.  Period.

 

The WoT Welcome Package (version 1)

 

I didn't make this stuff.  I just found the best, most clear and easy-to-understand information available to players to learn to play.  It will help you improve if you use it and take the time to understand it.

This is a blanket advice - general, all purpose - but said with sincere honesty.

 

Be patient.

Given you've only clocked in less than 2k battles, you're doing incredibly well, especially as your account is 5 years old, which tells me you don't play often. 

 

Majority of players can't do their tanks HP in damage, in fact only something like 15% of players manage it. Given you do ~30% more than your tank's HP in damage in the T28P and T30, you probably already do better than ~95% of players.

 

Edit: You're not noob btw, by game count you're new, but your performance most certainly does not make you noob, if anything you sit in top ~10% of player-base easy.
