Update on Monday January 21st, 2019:

I am going to leave it up for a few more rounds, giving a chance to catch as many votes are possible, and then I will run the analysis on those that participated in the vote;

 


 

I have now played the game over a year and a half, and I am now convinced I will never be a good player;


I have some of the skills required to improve, however, I am lacking the one that I think is essential to become and remain a "terrific" player.

 

I am curious to know what you guys think are the qualities required to be a "good" player of WoT?

 

Please elect the 10 utmost required skills in decreasing order of importance!

Thanks for participating...

There really isn't all that much you can do to win in WoT, and too often the correct tactical decisions made by 'good' players get them killed because teammates aren't backing them up properly.

 

I'd say it's all in the luck of the draw. You either have the patience to continue playing or you don't.

I know i am a aggressive player, and impatient. So i push to often when i should not. My weaknesses.

my stenght is awareness and positions. 

And knowning what my weakness is, is also a positive thing. That is one of the reasons i save my own gameplay to rewatch it and be a critic to see where i got lucky and where i failed.

I probably didn't do this right. I would have given more than one of these a 10 for importance, but I was trying to do them from important to least important cause I thought that's what you were asking us to do. I don't really think the ones I gave a 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 would really rate that low.

A very big poll i am not good cause i have to many tanks i never have time to be good because i play them at random.

 

A also have a blind eye unfortiuntley my right so seeing the minimap is a bit hard sometimes but i try my best.

 

Anyway Luck and patience wish i have none is what is realy important so i will never be any good unless the minimap travels over to the left side on the screen and i suddenly get very lucky in combination with a very patience approach i still have high hopes though.

 

Some gets it in the end so i am waiting.

The poll will be subjective, but it is interesting to see how things are voted.  However, for clarification, decreasing order of importance - do you mean 10 being most and 1 being least?

I agree. Pushing corners while your team mates wont move to help you. 1 tank battling 2 while 4 green hide behind building and wait.

The answer to all your poll questions is yes. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

I mostly agree, but if you look at the those that have high win rates, and watch them play you can change the rate by a few percentage points. The problem is that if every one played that way I would never play this game again. The real problem is that as the those styles of player are becoming more common every day. In the last several weeks I have noticed a dramatic shift in the way the light tanks play and no longer count on light tanks to do what many consider the traditional role of a light tank.

Honestly you don't need to know much about your tank or other tankd beyond approximate reload time.  Tank knowledge isn't that important.  I haven't looked at a tank armor scheme in years, and I couldn't tell you the pen values on anything I play but I do just fine.  

 

I would also classify aiming as a separate skill from the other mechanical stuff.  A lot of green players trying to get better put a lot of emphasis on improving their aiming and targeting weakspots and wonder why they aren't making that leap forward to purple.  Aiming just isn't that important.

 

Also don't forget that managing your silver budget is an important skill too.

No they aren't, the teams just seem to get worse every day. Measured aggression combined with map awareness wins games, and if everyone did that the game would be great.
