Sheesh, all the newbie players coming on because it is Chinese New Year. Fair enough your new to the game, but at least stay in the lower tiers where its fair on you and you get to learn the game mechanics. Not just buy a premium and go into tier 7, 8 and 9 games because the tanks look exciting and sexy. That wrecks our games and missions.

 

I know this subject has been done to death in other years at this time, just thought i would use inoffensive wording for the subject this time.

You can refuse to platoon...

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

There has been some doozies over the last few days, that's for sure.

 

I almost was ready to rage due to what felt like a really long string of losses, but the session was 54%. It was saved by a string of wins in the SU1:30pm. Wow that is a nice tank, very enjoyable to play. 

 

Also noticeable is the very high percentage of premium tanks in games at the moment. Purely anecdotal evidence based.....

Almost like they let any numpty buy one.
4. Why not swap the Chrysler K? We've been able to swap Skorps, 13 57s, 41 90s. I don't understand why the Chrysler is an exception. They have even been able to swap Chryslers on other servers just not on ASIA. I'm willing to spend credits/Gold to tank barbie my Chrysler if someone swaps it. It costs WG nothing but you might get some revenue out of doing it.

I had one in a defender with less than 200 games who hid in the rocks near the spawn of Steppes encounter for pretty much the entire game protected arty.

Been noticing the same thing in my skorpion g.

Players thinking they’re invincible and yolo into the enemy.

Happens... every game, though I still win some of those.

The free rental HT-VIs are great for farming XP. Like shooting :bots: but with Tier6 health points to harvest.

Or maybe, the one who were busy playing CW campaigns have returned to their natural habitat lower tiers to continue their session of hourly stat padding.

 

Just saying...

Usually the ones who are playing CW are not seal clubbing, they are playing higher tiers because that is what helps with CW.

LOL using TX games to "statpad"?

LT-playing masochist. It's too much fun to be a mosquito.

Pretty shitty. I haven't had a single day with positive winrate this year to date. I've also managed to increase my abandonment ratio to almost 50% of all matches because there is no point wasting time for nothing when the end result is the exact same loss.

Well its not really much use playing this game while chinese new year is here, the players on really dont have much of a clue, its just massive steamrolls, I  may play late in the evenings when better players may (?) be on. Other than that wait untill the CNY passes and things get back to a saner level.

Well if you abandon almost 50% of your matches, you are severely limiting your chances to make a positive impact on the outcome of the match. 

 

Have you considered that your interpretation of a lost cause is possibly faulty?

 

Either way, abandoning your team is poor team play regardless of the outcome.

 

You are clearly a very good player, much better than I however the point still stands.
