...players outright refusing to do things that would get a win? I don't mean the kind where they sit around and stare stupidly when they're next to a cap that can be reset to save the game, or drooling when an enemy is in the open right in front of them or any of the other pants-on-head [edited] stuff that so many players do all the time. No, I mean, when you ask them and instead of sitting there or doing something random, they actually say 1) No and 2) somehow actually acknowledge that that would win the game but that they don't care and are deliberately throwing the game by doing nothing.

 

I've noticed this coming up quite a bit lately and I was wondering if anyone else had.

Not more than usual, I'v only had the same observation as kookookichoo, though I've also had a run of enemies with laser accurate derp guns than can snap shot on the move from hundreds of metres away.

I only know of one instance of a player refusing to win.

The player in question deliberately didn't get on the cap circle because he believed the team didn't deserve to win. He had been camping base in his T34 the entire game prior to this.

Pretty standard really. It opens up great conversational topics. Things like 'why playing for fun makes impacting others fun ok', and 'the undisputed fully reasoned a-z of being gud@tanks = bad@life'.

Yeah this is the sort of thing I'm talking about. Had a half dozen of these over the last week. A Grille refusing to reset cap on Sacred Valley (or even spot it so our SPG could reset it) when he was on full HP and we had twice the tanks left the other team did, a Maus who outright refused to fight on Steppes, stuff like that.

I met you once in battle where you were on the opposing team in your Alpine tiger. You died quickly but you did still managed to get off 2 shots for about 800+ damage. I told everyone on my team that you needed to die early so that we could have a reasonable chance of victory but we still lost anyway because they all lemming towards you :facepalm:
