First of all, when somebody with a lower win rate is posting, it gets shot down by players who have better win rates. These arrogant individuals do nothing to contribute to a serious discussion about grievances. Now, we all know that the win rate, even of an average player goes up, if he/she plays certain 'OP' tanks only.

But apart from this, who is the majority of players? Not the unicums. By definition they are a small percentage of a percent. Let me remind you that without the 'tomatoes' you wouldn't have a game to play. It would be back to Tetris for you, too.

I am so sick of these immature posts, just there to flaunt one's gaming prowess. I love to play this game. I play all kinds of tanks. Good tanks or looser tanks. But lately I find myself 9 times out of 10, in a tier 10 game in a tier 8 tank. The ANZ server is especially prone to this. That in itself is not so much of a problem, but weather I am a good player or not, if the fun is gone, the game becomes a drag.

Many people have left the game and came back with a promise of low ping and a better gaming experience, only to find themselves in the same joyless situation as before.

From the point of an exceptional player, XVM points them out like a sore thumb and makes people concentrate on them. Guilty your Honour on this account.

Really if anyone wants to show off how good they are, join the local gym. It is full of those guys.

So, my blood pressure is down to an acceptable level and I can face another tier 10 game in my tier 8 tank.

That's dependent on the topic and what is being said.

Again very dependent. If someone has made a worthwhile topic, then the contributors will be many. If they are just having an unsubstantiated whine, then they'll get ripped to shreds.

In general this will lower individual influence, hence good players will see their WR drop in tier 8s, while those below average will see their WR increase. Think of it as a silver lining.

 

Beyond that is there any reason you think XVM and win rate is hogwash? You seem to mostly have issues with some people being good, while others not.

To be honest the title screamed denier. But then the text was just salt. Bit disappointed to be honest. But hoping the OP hasn't just created a thread then run away before actually entering into the discussion. He never really got to the point of saying why he thought XVM and win rate were hogwash afterall, which was kind of the point.

Hmm which type of denier are you talking about, those that deny there could be a possibility that WG manipulate the game or those that belive that WG do?  :P

The implication of a denier is that there is first proof.

that is the question, proof or possibility.

 

Denier: a person who refuses to accept the existence, truth, or validity of something despite evidence or general support for it:

 

See it works both ways, if the majority of the player base presume that WG manipulates the game, then I would surmise that is general support, semantics, where is your proof that they don't? Statistics? General theories?

 

As I stated before, a lot of VW owners generally thought their diesel was fine until...

Exactly why we were hoping for another denier thread given the title.

You're attributing "being an asshole" to "being a uncium" even though that value is not exclusive to unicums. You can also be a crap player and an [edited]at the same time and you can be a unicum who is a nice guy as well.

 

You're unhappy about people who are assholes, not unicums.

Hmm, the one you posted yourself, whereby he merely states that players use more Premium ammo due to RNG not being reliable enough to hit weak spots at distance, so basically, if you are lucky, your shot will hit where you are aiming for.. if not, it will miss.. 

 

I think I mentioned watching VaL shoot like 10-12 times and bouncing or missing in a row..   cause Skill right?

 

Ezz, maybe you are getting to long in the tooth with your 32K posts, forgetting some stuff.. I see a retirement chair somewhere in the corner.. :D

Lemming's point was that people use sprem to mitigate with the impact of RNG on the game - not that doing well is luck.

Are you suggesting that winning is all RNG? If not then maybe you have misinterpreted lemming's vid. It was pretty straight forward i thought.
