Generally play most evening with some mates.    Recently I have found that all that is shot at me is gold,   when I introduce people to the game or just feel like playing a lower tier game there are the T2's, M8A1 & t67s all firing gold (looks like all they play (check out the highest kill rates, you'll find that they are all t2 players who have many K games in that one tank), or we have a good team but the best players just use those with a pair to spot for them so they can farm damage & not actually get involved in the game.

 

My nephews and brothers have all played and the seal clubbers have put them off.

 

Other games have used over matching rules (inc WG on WOWS) where you need to select the right ammo or you over match and don't do full damage.  Something like that would be awesome, may actually involve some thought rather than gold gets you good.

 

Also something to reduce the seal clubbing.  i.e. wn8 being reduced at the lower level & pushed up at the upper level would be cool.

 

Thoughts....

No good player would want to play below t5 because its boring af. Most of these seal clubbers are utter trash at the game and rely on a skill crew and op tank to farm newbies, and while they may have winrates in excess or 60(even up to 70+), they often have <2.5k wn8. Some tier 1 etc padders have stats like 3kwn8 or whatever, but it doesn't mean they are any good at the game either, just good at farming people who don't know how to play. They did implement something to stop experienced players from seeing newbies too much in low tiers, but I don't know how it goes now.

Wn8 is a 3rd party metric. If you want that changed, post in the WNX team corner at wotlabs.net.

it already does that.

 

The wn8 of low tier statpadders is almost universally disproportionately lower than that of their win rate.

Hard to introduce people to the game and help them through the first few tiers without coming upon seal clubbers esp when they aren't running a prem account (free to play guys come & play).   little frustrating

nice,   so why do people sealclub.  I know a 007 who does it all the time & its to pad their stats.   feels rather rude & well cheeky.  i get one or two games a night, but all night is well scrubby

Have you thought that many are not stat padding but simply choose to play different tiers for the enjoyment of those tanks? With all the constant nerf/buff/anime/prem tank changes going on at higher tiers plus the often frustrating high tier matches full of newbies who rush up the line it is often fun just to drop back and play your favourite tanks for a bit.

Myself I have been playing this game since 2013 and am a little burnt out in WoT and dislike the direction the game is heading so often I just jump on for some fun across lower tiers with my fav vehicles being:

Plz.1c
T67
VK28.01
M4
M44
Cromwell B

Not trying to stat pad, just enjoy those tanks

this game is a joke and is made to make money and thats all, aim bots a rife through the game, and for myself 80% of the time im at the bottom of the team and have 2 tiers above so i will always have a 70% loss as i cannot damage hardly anyone

I once suggested the possibility of ranked battles in random to avoid green/blue players farming noobs. They now have ranked as an event so who knows? The only time I go that low is to pick up a kill of a new tank to keep my mastery badges up to date. Really  painful to play and tactics doesn't exist at those tiers it's all scoot and shoot not shoot and scoot!

I'm sick of the Match Making I wouldn't mine it is if I'm not always on the crap team. I win in about 1 to 6 losses it is starting to annoy the hell out of me

When someone starts quoting stats at me, I usually check their in game stats and notice the high WN8 and PR. Then just click the vehicles tab and most played tank. Usually it's exactly what ppl are saying. T2 or hellcat or T67 etc... and most of the time more than 10% of total battles in that tank. Which has said to be the overall stats now take on the stats of that individual tank.

They find a tank and probably do the same "tactic" of padding stats until they look like a purple player. Usually after an account REROLL. I even know moderators that have done this... BAHAHAHAHA

 

But in other news. yes it's frustrating at best. But keep playing with your buddies, drink beer and rum and have a good time. Don't take it seriously and use the black list more often without a single reply. I have learnt the hard way, and it get's you nowhere to reply to idiot trolls who all they do is troll and stat pad from the redline spreming gold . Very sad really.

That's the benefit of stats. They show who seal clubs or sticks to certain OP tanks. They also show those who are competent across most tanks, or for that matter those who are largely incompetent in most of theirs.

 

To be honest tho, in most instances having someone who's shown themselves to be competent in a tank is going to be more useful than someone who hasn't even managed that.

Well I have been busy building my nuclear arsenal I see not much has changed, the rage is low in me right now, I may pop up in the near future for some roflstomping once I move and get myself a PC to play this shiz again.

No rush to come back, cable is currently sharked so pubbing is even more like a pineapple than usual.
