Guess I'll celebrate with a turkey feast.

I have been hovering about 10 games negative for the last 6ish months to maybe even longer.

Congrats on achieving your goal! :)

I have found that WR is the last stat that actually moves up - in my experience, I tend to go up in damage, kills, k/d ratio, survivability, hit accuracy etc all materially before I go up in WR.  

I have copied some links that might be helpful for you below.  Good luck and enjoy! :)

Funny people say that..   if your a cv and the red is a cv and you're 75% there is only 25% left out there...

Congrats! Took me about 3 years, but I was being treated and getting physical therapy for a neurological/visual problem.

I too, just got there! Last night, and it took me a lot longer than 846 games.

image.png.3beb56d8aa4ca07ea910d2ddef32f28b.png

Of course my very next game was a mismatch in which the DD on my side stayed behind me (Belfast,) spotted none of the enemy, and randomly made long runs out to empty sea while the enemy DD sent salvo after salvo of torps at me and 2 BBs. Actually I think his jaunts weren't random, he didn't want to be spotted or shot at. That might be why his WR is 39% (with a 76 PR after 890 games in that DD!) So anyway, the session ended at -1 overall. I had hovered around 49.9 for a while, it's funny how you can encounter these ceilings along the way, and then eventually break through. It felt great to hit 50%, I was around 43% in January. And having lost to finish up last night, I get to chase 50% and feel great when it happens again! :)

Some players do well at this game from the start, some mature into good or better players over time. That maturation of play and the sense that I've had different "eras" of skill level is quite rewarding, and part of what keeps bringing me back, day after day. And there's so much more I have to learn. All the time, I discover new things in the game I don't understand but hope to learn so that I can be more consistently successful. For such a simple game, it's quite deep that way. 

Congratulations on reaching 50%, I wish you well on your continuing journey!

Congrats!  It took me a while too.  I got to 1 game under 50% a couple of times, only to have massive losing streaks right afterward, so finally breaking that barrier was a huge accomplishment.  I hope you certainly feel a sense of achievement!

Even better, you're 52% over the last 200 games.  The earlier games tend to pull you down as you build the experience of the Random experience.

846 games is what it took you to hit 50?  That's alot better than what many have done on here, keep it up!

I would burst into tears of Joy if people on my team made it that far that soon
