Just finished the 3rd mark on the Wolverine with a combined damage of 1110.

 

Decided to go back and do the same with the T67; I last played it 3 years ago and over 39 battles achieved only 600 combined damage average. That's going to take a bit to get that back to a decent level. 


3 MOEs - Nashorn, M36 Jackson, SU-100, S35CA, Matilda IV, Jagdpanzer IV, Archer, Wolverine

2 MOEs - Type 58, Pzkpfw T25, WT Pz IV, JagdPanther, SU-100Y, Boilermaker, T20, IS-2, T-34-88, T25/2, Borsig, Achilles, AMX AC 48, Charioteer

Same, when I went back to three mark the elc and 12t, my combined damage in them from when I first started were a pathetic 312 and 504.

Yeah most of my numbers in tanks I first grinded from tiers VI and lower are junk. Maybe one day I’ll have time to rectify those things, but I’d rather move forward with my TT grinds than backward.

Same here. It's a lot of fun re-discovering the potato tanks though. They don't play the same at all. :)

My intention is to go through the tank history and ace every tank I ever played. This will be a cool challenge. I wonder how I will do in a Matilda now, for example.

My goal is to try and get a 1st or Ace tanker and at least 1 MOE before I put away a tank. I try to do this while I am grinding it but it doesn't always go my way. I can do this usually during the grind as I don't free XP through any portions so the grinds take a little longer for me than a lot of people. Some times I dislike the tank so much that as soon as I finish the grind I sell it with plans to come back when I have more time and am done with all the grinds. Other times I can get the MOE but not the 1st or Ace such as in the Cent. 7/1 (although I am not finished grinding it yet, working the FV line now) and others it is the opposite I have the Ace or 1st but not the MOE before I finish the grind. I do plan to come back and finish them and just hope the game is still around to allow me to do this. It's all fun.

     As for the Matilda, you cannot mark it but you can still try and Ace it if you haven't already. It's a fun tank.

Lol I wish I was that good when I started. I had 600 average in my m46 Patton. That's when I realized it was time to get gud and stop making my team fail.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

Is the Matilda still slower than a snail?

While you probably are better today you all should bear in mind that your older stats most likely were built with a number of disadvantages. 

 

Playing without best package, without equipment, without the right supplies or without a skilled or even fully trained crew probably had a huge impact on your stats.

When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.

It's hilarious to think about.

When i first started, and I thought I had a great game in the TOG II* and posted it on youtube.

I often watch it for the laughs and think about how terrible I was at the game.

 

The worst part was, it took me FOREVER to come to the realization that I was bad.

And imo, therein lies the biggest issue with the player base.

 

Most people think they are good and everyone else is bad and that's why they lose.

 

That is false. You are always to blame.

After realizing that, I started to get better. and fast.


I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

I played thousands of games before I realized I could hit RB and lock onto a target.

I played over 5K battles before something in my brain clicked and I caught on,but sometimes the most obvious things in front of us are the hardest to see.

I played over 2 1/2 years not having a clue, I didn't load right and was more worried about silver and progressing to the next tank that I didn't take the time to learn anything.  So I first took an actual look at my stats and was appalled. My main problem now is to unlearn bad habits, like being too aggressive.  My numbers are so bad that I'll probably never get them up to a respectable level.  So I apologize to all teammates past and future. Just know I'm trying.

That’s me too. Numbers look better than before. 

I trend fair. I’m ok that I’m not as good as a lot on here. At least I’m not RED anymore

I believe there's a steep advantage to those that come from PC and have a clue. I also struggled when I was newer until I stumbled across the forums and heard about Wn8. Wow was I awful after looking at my stats and stats in my first grind lines. Oh well its just a game but nice tracking your progression when you become aware of how your performing. I'm not told nearly as much to delete the game :teethhappy:

I've learned a lot from this forum to be sure, I just learned about Wn8 a month or so ago. Kind of wish I didn't ignorance is bliss sorta thing. Lol I just read to about the RB and have no idea what it's supposed to do but I'll try it and see what happens.

Many of us don't have that excuse. I was bad before crews even had XP.

Pretty much everyone starts off bad and has to learnt the ropes.
