How To Improve Your WN8

Some tips on improving your WN8

This guide will give you some tips on ways to improve your WN8. Improving at games is something all gamers aim for after a certain amount of time. This often comes once a few core concepts have been cemented and now, instead of just trying to survive, a player wants to actually improve by a quantifiable amount.

It’s no different in World of Tanks as players not only try to improve their understanding but also try to improve their skill as represented by a statistical value. If you aren’t familiar with what WN8 is, I suggest taking a look at our article that explains what WN8 means in World of Tanks. While it’s enjoyable to feel as if you’re performing better, it can be rewarding to see a value increase.

Increase Kills

Easier said than done, but increasing the the amount of kills you get will directly affect your WN8.

While scoring kills isn’t the be-all-and-end-all of improving your WN8 score, it’s a useful way to improve. The logic behind this is that if you are able to kill more enemy tanks while remaining alive, you are no doubt player better than your opponent. The better you are than your opponent the more your skills will be reflected in your WN8 value. Take the time to strike at enemy tanks when you know they are vulnerable while also ensuring you avoid getting greedy.

Win More

Winning more means you're doing something right, and playing correctly means you're WN8 will be increasing.

Winning more is an obvious way to improve your WN8 score, but it’s one that needs to be said. Walking away from a match with a victory can mean a lot of things, especially if you managed to survive to the end. By securing a victory, there’s a decent chance you also managed to spot, deal damage, or kill enemy tanks and even capture an enemy base.

Besides, winning a match in World of Tanks is the best way to earn experience and silver. With more wins under your belt, you'll find that your skills are increasing and your consistency is increasing, which is how to improve your WN8.

Spots Per Battle

Spotting isn’t something a lot of non-Light tanks aim to try and accomplish, but it can definitely be done. Spotting an enemy tank means your allies will be able to see them (so long as they’re within radio range) and deal damage to them. Any allies that deal damage to an enemy you spotted, will be directly beneficial for you as you will receive experience based on this damage. Spotting for your teammates is an excellent way to help them, and the more teamwork within a team the higher the chance of walking away with a victory.

Increase Damage Dealt

The amount of damage you need to deal is on a per-tank basis. While a Tier 1 tank won't be able to deal thousands of damage, dealing only 400 damage in a Tier 8 tank would be inexcusable. Help your team by firing on every tank you can see!

One of the most important aspects of WN8, and thus one way to improve your WN8 value, is the amount of damage being dealt by a tank. The way this works is that the WN8 algorithm takes into account the amount of damage other players are dealing using a specific tank. Essentially, the goal is to deal more damage using said tank, than the global average among players.

For example, if the average damage dealt among players in the T1 Cunningham is 1,000, in order to improve your WN8 when using the T1 Cunningham, you would have to deal more than 1,000 points of damage.

Remain Consistent

Arguably the most important aspect of improving your WN8 is to become consistently better. It’s not good to simply have a few good games every now and again, it’s crucial to play better in every match. Performing poorly in nine matches and then blitzing in the tenth will not be beneficial for your WN8. It’s far more important to steadily increase your skills and maintain a solid pace. By trying, every match, to implement good teamwork and smart strategies, you will be one step closer to improving your WN8.

In World of Tanks, being the best player and winning every match isn’t everything, but to some people, it’s a fun part of the game. By following the above tips, any player that is looking to get better will be able to improve not only their skills, but will be able to improve their WN8 as well. Let us know in the comments any tips for players who might be looking to improve their WN8!
