Game is too hard. Play ~3k wn8 and win only 30% multiple times per week.

Everyone is better than I am. With insane reaction speed and snap shooting accuracy while I miss fully aimed shots consistently.

Have only won a single game all night that I didn't hard carry, and I hardly did anything in that game because my team ran over the enemies faster than I could drive my tank. WoT is weird.

IMHO, its a symptom of the blatant powercreep/monetization changes that was made to the game that led to this 5min games standard. Players using bond equipments, food and full prem ammo loadout have a serious advantage over regular players. Add a few OP premium tanks that print credits even shooting full prem and you get the recipe for a continuous stream of 15-2, 15-3 losses. Quality of the game seriously went down the drain since several patches. 

 

My take on this is when things gets ugly: walk away. There's nothing forcing you to play this game, and literally thousands of other games that deserves to be played rather then this pile of cyka blyat.

But I only need like 15 more wins for the free day of premium time mission, and only have 1 more day today.

For one, very few players run full bond equipment loadouts, since those loadouts are extremely expensive.

 

If you're actually pulling 3k WN8, even if you are sniping on the redline, you will still have a higher than 30% WR in the long run.

That's not the reason for blowouts. The reason is that there aren't enough bad players playing, at least in the NA server.

I dont think player skill correlates to blowouts. You see 15-3 blowouts with 2, statistically speaking, evenly matched clans in clan wars often.

That's just called bad leadership/teamwork. Poor calls or lack of focus fire (yes, even from high wn8 players) will kill games. Doesn't matter if they are "statistically equal". 

 

Blowouts in pubs can usually start from MM, placing 3 chieftains on one team against 1 chieftain on the other, especially on maps dependent on gun depression (like westfield) will severely affect the game. If its 3-5-7, it's usually just whoever has the better top tier players and what tanks they are in for the map. A top tier light on himmels means nothing so sometimes its up to the tier 9 heavies to carry a match. 

 

Sure there are plenty of variables that go into it, but its typically just a collective effort. If the team does that bad, regardless how well you do as an individual you won't be able to carry the game. My highest damage ever was the Chieftain on Murovanka (or at least maybe my second highest), ended in a draw. I've had a lot of ranked battles with 12/15 players doing less than 1k for whatever reason, even though they are "statistically good", they sucked as a collective. 

 

You can hold a 3k wn8 for sure, especially in ranked, and still have a sub 40% if the team you are on just sucks. I've had trash luck myself and, stuck at rank 6-8 in the first division for the last 5 days. Just can't break through it.

Op, don't worry about wins/losses. Worry about doing good in each battle. If you get 1000-2000+ dmg every game but lose, you will feel much better then not doing damage and winning

Everyone is better than I am. With insane reaction speed and snap shooting accuracy while I miss fully aimed shots consistently.    And yet he wins 56% and has a recent WN8 of 2439, how can he do WAY above average if EVERYONE is better than he ?

Have only won a single game all night that I didn't hard carry...   One night of play is a tiny sample size and means practically nothing.

 

WoT is weird.   No... your attempt at logic is weird.

I'd say find a platoon buddy and work together, you'd be surprised how much of a difference it makes to have at least one teammate that works as a team. 

 

As for the aiming and snap shot differences, first make sure your crew is at a 100%, then toss vert/vents on what ever tank your playing.  If you do that your about as accurate as you can get outside of using food, which isn't really needed.  I ground out ever tank in the game without food, only recently started tossing it on a few tanks to try out.  As for why their shots hit and yours don't, you may not see it but in most cases their shots miss just as much.  You tend to only remember the shots that hit you and most likely since you feel unaimed shots always miss you avoid taking them.  But what I've found is, take the shot anyways if your spotted, you can get some amazing lucky BS shots.  Most tanks won't run out of ammo even with quite a few extra derpy shots.

You are falling into the same problematic pattern that most are: Caring about trying to keep up with all these stupid modes and challenges. If you like the game, then just play it and forget about hoping and skipping from one side of this game to the other to keep up with meaningless minutiae.

We're all different but those carrots are what keeps me playing.  I knew I wouldn't be playing the roughly 150 games in a week to complete this particular one so I didn't try but I'm looking forward to these belated spooky missions to scratch that itch.

This.

 

I find myself falling into the trap of feeling like I am missing out if I don't finish something.  You have a rough night and even getting 5 wins to use the daily premium bonus XP...there will be 5 more tomorrow.  Or getting those 5 kills for your 25 bonds...I finished the night with three out of four games over 3000 damage with ZERO kills in all three and decided to smile at the last one and go to bed since it was a good game I can honestly say would have been a loss without a few key shots I made when they counted (17 crew/modules damaged in one match).

not true, could be doing 3k wn8 in his reroll account with a LT, and still be irrelevant in the game..

I call OP as being FoS on this matter.

 

 

Nice troll try, mate.

typical of this game, you will have 2-3 day you can't lose and do good, 1-2 days you can't win and do decent/poor, 3-4 days can't win but do great.

The correlation is the fact that the more lopsided the teams the more likely it is to happen. That doesn't mean that it can't happen with evenly matched teams, just that it's less likely...

Try playing this after three strokes plus broken back and hand injuries. NOTHING is hard , it is only a challenge you get to overcome . Learn now to accept it and go beat it.
