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.

 

As the Cardinal was saying, you really ought to stick it out regardless. You never know how things turn out. I received my first Kolobanov's in a standard game recently despite a team of absolute numpties (and narrowly missed two others). I was just lucky in the end that the enemies went full special needs and lined up one by one in front of my gun :teethhappy:.

 

Abandoning games from yesterday would be understandable though. I've seen bad teams, poor play, and long loss streaks before, but yesterday presented a whole new level of gut wrenching stupid. Even 55% WR players with tens of thousands of games were playing like bots. Maybe it was the moon phase or something, I don't know.

When you have this fine fellow in your team as a top tier medium...

 

 

 

Him plus two others with 45% WR while the enemy has 49% lowest. We lost that one, btw.

 

Plays for fun I guess.

I think I saw your reaction to this in general chat. Had to check you weren't on my previous team because I was playing like a complete numptie. Took till after 2am to accept that the scroll wheel on my mouse is broken and I wasn't do myself or my team any favours.

Its been this way since the Christmas loot box bonanza. I've run across a number of players with sub 100 games rolling in accounts that only have premium tanks tiers ~6-8 and maybe the tier 6 that WG basically gives away for the tutorial now.

There are alot of rerolls from a large nation in the northern Asia region (many seem to be running around with Singaporean flags).  Some of them are slightly above average but have very little grasp of etiquette, rules or decency, others are chock full of premium tanks and horrifically bad.

3 minutes in, and look at where these heavies are.

 

 

The icing on the cake was when one of those "TDs" gave a little speech about "no brains" is the enemy, and makes you lose.

 

We lost. Had lots of enemies on my team it seems.

Yep Sir_Direkin, that is definitely a flop battle right there. :sceptic:

 

Edited to add, seems to show that those players dont know how heavy tank armor works and/or fail to understand what armor is. It is meant to deflect shells if used correctly. Them all being huddled together like that behind a rock would be an artillery mans dream. I bounce a lot of stuff from higher tiers in my U 252 and practically all stuff in tier 8, I just take a note of any borsigs, waffle 4's, skorp G, grills or 4005 and where they are. The Swedish TD's as well but you never see them and they are a real killer. As they outsee you.

 

BUT...... the wheeled vehicles are here, and should be able to  extend our team land boundaries a bit, and they better as the other teams wheeled vehicles will be doing exactly the same thing. Anyone done mines with AC's yet ?

new players in premiums, the introduction of wheeled vehicles, op premium heavies, to many autoloaders and having to play on hk server to get battles at 180 ping has increased my abandon rate 10 fold. not having fun at the moment trying to grind towards anything has given me more grey hairs than a koala bear but this is my game this is the game i play 50% of my battles are suicide or abandon.

You are better off taking a break from the game.... your potential team mates thank you in advance for not taking part at all rather than abandoning games you believe you are no help at winning.

 

Come back when you feel you can contribute.

Fair enough, we can only go by what you state and in your previous comment you stated you abandon or suicide(same thing basically) 50% of your battles...

Why would you want to play in the lower tiers? 3 arty most games with reload quicker then most crews can fix a track. ( that's if they don't one shoot you )

 

Lower tiers = Arty spam......

 

Tier 8 prem for them = less games with 3 Arty.

 

 

( ARTY worst part of the game )
