In the past 2 months it has been 1494.


yet.. My efficiency overall is 1339.

Sooooo... this would lead one to conclude that it takes a while to recover from one's initial learning period. Even though my last two months have all been above 1494 - whatever my original learning curve derp'd me for is dragging me down to 1339.

I installed the game on October 13th.... therefore I'm still recovering from my first month of idiocracy
I had 2 months of idiocracy before I really started to learn how to play well. It took forever to recover from that. As you can see, my efficiency over the last 60 days is about 400 higher than my overall average and my win rate over the last 60 days is about 10% higher than my average.

I was just running my KV-1S with my IS3 crew in it - and 6th sense was lighting up.

FWIW

I didn't know that worked.

So, I have 2 battles in the T32 with a 100% win rate and 100% survival rate.


I should just go ahead and sell it, right?

I'm ALT-TAB'd out of a battle with the TOG right now (it takes forever to cross the steppes map)... someone typed:

Tank Of Gods II

I got a BT-2 last night. After three battles I was at 100% victories, 0% survival when I moved on to the BT-7. Four battles in the BT-7 and I'm at 75% victories, 25% survival

I use my BT-2 quite a lot!

It has some good rounds...

I have a 63% win ratio with the T25/2.

Am I going to hate the T28 proto? They seem like opposites. Should I bother?

Hard to tell. I also like the 25/2. The Prot isn't anything like it, but I like that too. Big damage is fun. Sometimes if I find myself doing stupid stuff, I'll run the Prot to slow things down and get my focus back. I sold mine to pay for the M48, but I kept the crew and good modules and will be buying it back as soon as possible. Of coarse, I'll have to stop playing the M48 so that I can actually save up some silver.

Playing with a loss of sleep is a sure way for me to keep not being effective at this game.

For the first 3000 battles I also took the approach that alcohol and tanks were a great mix... but I have since swore off of drinking if WoT is what I want to do that evening. Crazy that I let a game affect me like that... but winning is better than losing.

I'll never forget the slow climb back up afterward where I was 200 less wins than losses, then 100, 200, and 400 more wins than losses... and it seemed I'd never get this high (and it's still not great). Platooning has helped since I didn't use to platoon at all. I refused to join a clan forever, and that really made everything tougher.

But learning to stop when I was too tired helped a ton.
