Yup that is another thing... I added a mod to prevent me shooting wrecks or team members by accident but after 2k battles it is time to remove it. Sometimes the enemy is just too close to you team member ;)
I wish WG would act more so dumb or deliberate fools would learn from it.
There is so much that WG could do to make this game a whole lot better for every-one.

If you think Illegal mods are worse than RNG and arty you are part of the problem


+/- 25% RNG is not conducive to a skill based game, it makes the competitive scene literally a joke and it means a significant portion of events in the game are quite literally determined by dice rolls. If you and your opponent both have a D-25T yet one of you rolls 320 (literally me every T-34-3 game) and the other rolls 450 that's not a product of skill, it is a product of luck. If this game wants to be taken seriously RNG needs to be reduced to +/- 10%.


I agree, Illegal mods, arty, MM whatever, I can accept and deal with, but RNG.. you position your tank somewhere to your advantage, outplay the enemy, wait fully aim and ... hit the ground 20 yards away..


Fully aimed shots.. even after waiting that extra second like 4dogs suggests.. ground-hog -day..  or the shot flies off at such an angle i wonder if I even have a straight barrel


but yet, reload and take a snapshot at an ELC wizzing around the map 400m away and BOOM..  yeah RNG at its finest..


I really detest my skill at tanks being SIRcumvented by something I literally have no control over..  


Feel a player is cheating, reloacate, BAD MM , farm damge.. but RNG.. get away!

All of the options have a degree of validity, except for the arty option. Arty is just fine.


The biggest issue on the SEA server is the player base - camping in heavies, lites that refuse to scout, teams that ignore pushes, players that watch another tank take the initiative and refuse to help. The game play meta on this server is sooo cautious its painful.


and provence - bring that map back for low tiers....

I reckon it is like a large portion of the server is on auto-pilot.


This scenario happens all the time.


I'm in a team of mostly heavy tanks on a map like Highway. The enemy team is mostly meds. The obvious thing to do is all push into the city, meds and tds as well. Comments in chat about how we will win in the city. Enemy team has a couple of tanks who go city, hold up the overwhelming force because no-one wants to rush them, and the flanking 80% of the team races into cap for the win.


Or the fabulous T49 anti-scout. When you drive it you wait at the back of the map to snipe. Despite being the only light tank on your team, spotting is not in your list of "things to do".


Or that mindset of "I am in a sniper tank - must camp hard".


Or my absolute pet peev. TDS and tanks waiting for a scout to get lights, and then never move forward as the scout does so they can shoot at newly lit targets. Yes Prok/FS 1/2 line campers, I'm talking about you........


It is not everyone who does this sort of thing, but it is a pretty significant portion who do.


And wow, I'm salty. It was kind of like knocking off the scab and out it comes!!!

That Prok one triggers me massively... or when you are scouting on Prok and some idiot TD decides because nothing is lit for 60 seconds the scout 300 metres in front of him isn't scouting so he shoots them, then calls the team noobs when the enemy drive within 100 metres of him and kill him.



Salt glorious salt : They can not do what they want with unclearly way.

The one I've discovered is the RICH Numpties, who like their Poorer Bretherin, leave the Cap with their fingers on the fire button.

Firing any and everywhere.

The Difference being that these RICH Numpties, are firing SPREM, as they leave the CAP.

I know this because I was Racked and had my Commander Injured by a Friendly Numptie in a Crusader Scout.

I Can't be Sure he was Apologising, as the message I "ASSUME" was directed at me was "[][][][][][] [][][][][][] [][][][][][][]"

By the same Token he could have been calling me "Noob" for intercepting his Gold Wild Firing.

It's happened a Few Times of late, Not as Damaging, but even in a Tier 9 match, with a (Whats the German version of the Bulldog called?  The Premium WG Grand final one? ) Black Premium German / U.S Grad Final Edition Tier 8 Light Tank.

Vote NOW, to Wall up the Lakeville Valley Pass.

So Many Idiots.

So little Shells.
