After some confusion about what I was trying to get across I will repost 

As some of you are aware getting low tier battles has been rough for players on ANZ Server '  so if any of you would be willing to volunteer some time to play a few battles that would be great " 

Let me make it clear"

I have no wish for anybody to be forced into anything or interrupt  CWs or what ever I am simply asking for some of the older player base to help out when they have some free time

Just to give new players a chance at the game with good ping ' the ANZ server has been a long time coming if we want to keep it we have to input to it's success 1 hour a night is not that much really

You do realise, that forcing everyone to play low tiers for a certain time, will not make the experience for new players any better, because they would end up against really good players and be killed before they get to do anything. You would just be forcing seal clubbing, which is already an issue for new players.

If you read my post I said play fair 'offer advice and support " but yes there would be the seal clubbers ' and there is no force involved I am simply reaching out to those of you that care enough  about the server to input some of your time and expertise '

What if, as paying customers, we would rather play tiers we choose?

 

Seriously, there's enough guides, forum posts, and streams for new players to avail their time in getting tips and advice. If someone really wants to learn, they'll ask on forums and likely go to one of those sources.

 

I don't see forcing players into specific tiers to be the way of the future.

can someone here tell me where  I suggest forcing players into lower tiers? I made no such suggestion " I again am reaching to those of you who dont mind investing  abit of time ' you have completely missed my point about low tiers ' I am referring to the lack in numbers at low tiers making it hard for new players to get battles ' then forcing them to go back to the SG server ' this situation defeats the purpose of the ANZ and better ping if all you are going to have is older players at high tiers ' as for paying customers I have many premium tanks ' gold ' and run a premium account myself I would think players from NZ and AUZ who invest money would benefit from a long term server' but I guess the time to moan is when they shut in down in steam of some input due  to the lack of players aye

WG needs to sell attractive lower-tier premiums. Especially at T5-6-7

 

They don't need to be OP - the essential quality is that they need to make as much or nearly as much money as T8s, giving a player an option other than T8 prems for grinding cash.

that coming from you @ Hate_pubbehs  is interesting considering you often  say In gen chat how much you hate low stat players at high tiers '

With the current new player structure there is really no need to be playing tier 1/2  . They can start playing with normal teams starting at tier 3/4 .

 


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

The bigger issue is that, and I am to blame as much as anyone else, when I log on and see less than 500 on the ANZ server I go to the SG server to get games, maybe if we all just stayed on the ANZ server and put up with the longer queue times it wouldnt be an issue?

 

As for the lower tiers, may not be fun for new players to come up against high game players

 

The other thing that needs to be brought back, its working for ships and planes, is the number of players by tier so you know where the games are. That would solve so many of the queue time issues.

Low tiers needs skill based matchmaking, and bots to fill up the numbers. Like what you get when you first play low tiers in WOW. Just match the player with similar skill players and make up the numbers with bots.

 

This puts the seal clubbers out of business and allows new players time to get used to the game, and know the feeling of killing lots of tanks. Once they reach a certain amount of games or player service record, they then get matched with the main player base

 

Awesome for player retention. If a new player plays 1000 games, probably likely to play 10000. Also limit new players to low tiers (6 and under)

This is actually a pretty reasonable idea.

The cable isn't even sharked at the moment, so not sure why anyone would worry about ping to SG. When it's borked then fair enough. As far as the separate seal clubbing issue i reckon they should just allow decent players to skip to tier 5 in a line. At least that way you can reduce the number of non intentional clubbers.

The limiting to lower tiers would basically cut off the revenue stream of numpties buying upper tier prems. While it would be good for the gameplay, WG have shown they are less interested in gameplay and more in revenue, so i can't see it happening.

maybe WG could just make it so new players only play on proving ground until they have reached say 5ooo battles and then they can join in on random battles ' as a part of that make it mandatory to complex some game mechanic skill based tasks like map awareness' spotting ' weak spots side scrapping tank load outs   'at least that way buy the time they hit the main battle field they would at least understand what other players are talking about it would also give them time to get use to some of the maps .' I dont know what the fix is   but if something doesn't change  our player base will not grow

Yes, I agree we should get all of PYRO to play tier 1-3 for 2 hours every night to scare off all the new players.

I'll get right onto organising it!
