Number of games played per hour/day/week is an important metric for a gaming company. Remember this.

But intrinsic to this, should the 3rd graders be given the same rewards as the ABs? As that's what a SBMM would do under the current rewards system. Change the rewards and a SBMM could work.

Purples get ABs salaries

Sub 46%ers pay subs for the right to play and to cover the costs of servers.

Now under that a SBMM could work. I'd happily play other blues and purples under that.

This is mostly because you need to qualify in some way to play at that level. You need to show you know what you are doing before you are allowed to play at that grade. Tiger Wood never played against muppets in the PGA because muppets are not allowed to play at that level.

 

An equivalent in WoT might be you are unable to play a certain tier until you achieve a certain level of performance in the previous tier.

Found a bloke last night who in 200 battles is 4% WORSE in his Defender than his overall. He's 41% in the Defender.

The number of players who can't win 50% of their games at tier 3 in tiers 8, 9 and 10 these days is soul destroying and now I see we have missions that will let them fail to hundreds of blueprint fragments so they don't even have to learn the game grinding a line (or even just delaying them failing their way to high tiers).

That raises another point about the extra quantity of bads playing upper tiers - WG offer so many XP missions / boosters etc. these days that you can grind to the upper tiers in almost no time (Back in my day ....) - even when playing really poorly. It means there are tons of pubbies who literally don't get the basics, yet are there in tier 8s and above. It's no wonder snow balls happen.

It took me literally 41 battles to fully grind the udes 14 15. That's not even FLs or anything nor using free xp beyond the tracks. And that's going from a tier 8 to owning a tier 9. Not even with a great win rate. How is that going to teach anyone about how to play?

I did the Tier 9 Fake tank in 57 battles and 'not even a great win rate' is an understatement. It was bot level (even with a couple of Ace Tankers).

Speaking of hugely one sided battles... i'm running at 7.3% draws since 1.6 patch. Hex sized sample mind you, but interesting nonetheless.

I'm zero draws from 2 battles yesterday. You have no idea about stats.

 

I'm waiting for Bolhex to stun us all with his performance in the UK lights. 

 

I kind of went close to buying the ReSheeter last night, the cursor was hovering over the purchase button but I could not pull the trigger. I suppose that's good practise for how you actually play the "tank".

 

I think the thing which is really putting me off is the crew investment. And in tanks which look like it will be hard to get decent xp earn in. Jesus, the thought of playing those things on any kind of city map gives me the willies.

You know how there are some tanks where you seem to accumulate damage easily, like it doesn't feel like you have done that much, just the odd click here and there, and then whammo you've got a few k damage. Well, the settler isn't like that.

It seems like it would be more like, the odd click here and there, and then whamo you've got a couple of hundred hps of damage.

It's fair to say trying to finish in the top 5 for damage and get the Vidi mission was a struggle yesterday. Won a few games but damage. Sheesh.

It seems like the post crommie line might be an attempt to get rid of those pesky crew training directives and further encouragement to get a premium account so you can use the xp boosts.

I still maintain this is merely a typo in a memo somewhere or perhaps a misinterpretation. The memo was probably that it would be researched from the cromwell. But what they meant was that it would be a tier 6, similar to other cross over research options. Most of the line would be interesting if they were a tier lower. You could even say they had good guns with good alpha. Well at least average alpha at least.

Yeah, maybe 2 tiers lower would make more sense. The Settler gets out-dpmed by a Pz38nA.

My T26E5 stats are abysmal - embarrassingly. I bought it at 2 or 3k games .... destroyed souls, drowned in upper tiers. I think it's my worst stat tank lol, and OP asf.

That was my tragic experience in the T-55A. Great tank, but never was I more cursed than in that thing. Gave up and sold it af6ter trying to fix the win rate and only dragging it further down.

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