Greatest achievement for me is reaching the dizzy heights of 56%  :Smile_Default: this week a struggle but got there, went back to basics @ 48% sold my T10 & 9 ships looked at videos studied started again at L1 Black Swan then didn't paly above T8 now doing fine with 12 x 19 point captains on my  ships up to T8.

 

A tip for all others who like me @ 48% blamed the game blamed others USED every excuse in the book .I looked at myself and my game play and attitude , now I enjoy the game a lot more and believe actually make a good contribution in any games I play , but still a lot more to learn and still a long way to go with a goal of 60% by the end of the year.

Sadly most of those @ 48% WR won't read this and another good portion of those that actualy do read this won't agree or take the same path.

Nice to hear though one more found the light.

Good luck on your 60% :cap_like:

If you manage to hold your current average WR at 70% (your last weeks 78% is a bit high to hope to keep it all the time :Smile_teethhappy:) it should take you 2795 games or about 12....13 games per day (12.15 to be more exact) and you'd get 60% overall average on 31st December :fish_book:

I was absolutely terrible at this game (inb4 lol, was?) two years ago - with T7 premiums and max tier 5 silver ships - and took a long break, frustrated that I wasn't having fun. When I came back, my divmate who had played the whole time and had learned the game pointed me in the direction of CCs, guides, took me out and let me learn from him. It's been a slog but I got to 56/7% in the last year and am now comfortable with how good I am, but still striving to be better.

 

The trick is to learn. If you're happy boom boom failing up to Yamato and stinking up T10 games, you're always going to get grief in chat from those who are naturally good or have learned. Be a contributor to the team, not a liability.

I wasted my WR playing Nurmberg for too long, because I was stubborn and I thought I could make it work lol

Wanna know how I got good at playing CVs?

I played ~600 games in my Hiryu before moving up to Shokaku.

 

So yeah, you're on the right path. Best of luck to you.

Its Refreshing to see someone who's actually bothered in taking the time to post this....

 

Had a similar journey OP Realised eventually that it WAS me and I needed to change how I played. So I can empathise there. Probably didn't help as a poor player playing the RN Cruiser line but I was so determined to suss them out I stuck with them regardless. Like you im trying to achieve a rise in WR to 50% and whilst everything else has been on the rise for some time, WR is still Somewhat inconsistent and as a Solo player I think these two are perhaps related . So I joined a division for the first time yesterday to see if this will help expand my WR through coordinated gameplay with other like minded folk. Lets hope it works.:Smile_teethhappy:

As others have said, I wish you luck on your journey in this game.

I had a similar experience when I realized that my winrate went up if I had the time to start playing t4 Isyaslav, then Ohotnik at t5, then t7 Leningrad... same captain. After that I can play any t10 DD better. For me its sort of a warmup. But most days I dont have the time so I'll just jump to t10 with mixed results.

Yep, absolutely agree. Since deciding to take the time and the effort to improve, this game had become so much more fun too. I think always having stuff to learn and improve is one of the bet things about this game, even as a casual player (i.e. not able to put loads of hours in every week).

 

Hopefully I'll even have some good news to report like OP Soon TM, that would be something :fish_book:

I think it really doesnt matter how many hours per week youre playing, as long as you try to improve and not make the same mistakes over and over again.

I am doing something similar to you - I totally screwed my beginnings in this game 1000+ totally clueless battles, using FreeXP to race through tiers without a clue and playing like it was a co-op game against bots.
And now, very slowly, learning the game again and very, very, very slowly, raising my stats - I'm not overly fussed about my stats - other than an indicator that I am playing better.... but I am having to constantly smack myself around getting rid of bad habits and, most importantly; doing this called  *THINKING*!!!! 

Along the way, the thing that I am noticing more and more is where other people are going wrong - dumb stuff - and you try to help them, try to tell them stuff, and so very often they just don't listen.. but, still gotta try.

Exactly this. Everyone can take that approach, no matter how much time they have, and doing so makes the game much more enjoyable.

OP You have probably talent, just do not forget in your quest for higher WR to have fun, yes playing better and develop is fun, but do not be a player who only play certain ships because they bring stats.

The higher up you climb your number of games will drag you so to speak. As you can see I have double your number roughly and I am not interested in a reroll, my only realistic chance to play for better stats.

 

I try to improve but I have set other goals as a collector, right now getting 10 p captains at all T3 ships and above. Once I hunted WR , measuring progress with suitable intervals but as soon as I abandoned low/mid tier the WR has been rather constant, better in low/mid tiers on many ships that I like are compensated by less good stats at higher tiers and as I grind every tech tree it is many ships that I have endured rather than keeping my stats.

 

The curve thins out a lot if you look at percentages i.e. far less players between 58-59 than 57-58 (I look only at solo stats), but you are naturally free to do as you please. I know that if I only would have played ships that I liked and some OP ships my WR would have been improved by 2-4 %. But I have realized I am in this game mainly as a Warship enthusiast and not reaching highest possible WR. naturally I try to follow advice etc on various ships and you learn the maps etc but the collecting style of play is detrimental to win rate. You change ships and have less trained captains, now I have so many games that the captain bit is less pronounced, but if you play with a 10-14 p captain vs 19 it is in many both high and low tier ships some wins over 100 even if it is difficult to quantify.

 

Why low tiers you play with you left hand against lesser skilled players, yes you do but ships like Bogatyr, Chikuma which I have 19 points on are far stronger with 19 than say 6 p or even 10. 

After I have reached the 10 p goal on T3+ I would probably have the goal of 13-14 on each T8 and higher (depending on suitable skill order) and more 19 p (have many permacamos on T10 to get to 19 easier and some mid tiers also) on my favourite ships.

It takes a while but that should increase my WR also but more as a sideeffect.

 

But good luck with your quest OP! :cap_like:

Nice post.  What interests me is the T10 win rate issue, I’ve noticed as I have got further in the game my win rate stalls at T10 and decreases my overall win rate.  I’m not overaly bothered by stats but as I play solo I wonder if T10 is a stat killer zone for randoms.

Wow! If you say you suck, I beat you by miles in doing so! I have oozed my way to current WR (52.4%). Coming from IIRC 48. My goal is to reach 60 before '19. (2119 that is...).
