Bad players are not “ruining” your game, any more than the In-field Fly Rule or 10 foot Basketball hoops ruin those games. They are obstacles and challenges, purpose built into the game, that need to be overcome.  

 

I find it hilarious, most of the whining I hear -and it is whining, not a valid complaint- comes from very good players, who have shown their ability to overcome the challenge of bad players on their team. 

 

I actually enjoy seeing all these whining posts. 

They show me even Unicums are just regular shmo’s, capable of the same failures of ignorance as everyone else. 

 

QFTT.    

 

Bad players are part of the game.  

    Bad players are good for the game, as if everyone was a super super Unicum it would be boring.  

 

The more oxygen thieves in this game allows me to get better stats.

If you play like TRASH you deserve to be treated as such. And only people who are TRASH try to make an argument that stats are not part of a measure of skill. If you are the reason your team is losing most of the time and you claim to be trying...you have no idea what trying to win is. If you know you are not providing anything useful to your tm and do not change the way you or do not try to improve in general, you are just a liability that shouldnt be allowed to play the game....BUT I said shouldn't because WG is a business and, as it was said before, they cannot restrict players just because they are trash at their game (since you are all potential money makers after all)...so if trash is conscious of being trash, trash should set those restrictions itself. And since that will never happen, people who's games trash has ruined will be there to remind you that trash is indeed trash.

 

I would reply and tell you what I think, but then I might be accused by the mods of turning the thread 'toxic', when in reality it's ppl like you who think they're god and have a right to dictate to others how things must be, and calling others trash, etc., who are really those who make a thread toxic. Have a nice day! :)

First off, if you truly understand this game, it takes very little effort to get to 50%. The fact that you cannot do so is proof enough that you're a terrible player and a liability to your teammates whenever you click that "battle button". Don't even complain about bad teams, because you are clearly part of the problem. Please, stop looking for petty excuses to defend yourself and your fellow 40%ers. (like Crusader6, I prefer to call them oxygen thiefs). Once again, if your internet connection/device is half good, and you have braincells numbering in the double digits, it genuinely is NOT difficult to attain a 50% winrate.

 

I simply do not comprehend the mentality of people like you: "I think I'm a great player, even though my stats and everyone else says otherwise. Ooo, shiny tank, let's go into battle and ruin the fun for 13 other players!". Honestly, please stop. Either learn how to play, or go back to tiers <6 where you truly belong.

This is your typical response.  You've made little to no effort to try and UNDERSTAND what others are saying to you.   Instead you focus on a REPLY.     When I was your age, I had the same struggles.  I think it stems from wanting to fit in with the group, but not quite knowing how.  So you try and make your self sound like you know what you are talking about, when you don't :( 

 

I really wish that when I was a kid someone had told me that listening to understand what others are saying is key.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Since I am ''entitled to an opinion'', creating posts for attention and then ignoring everything people say to you is another definition of toxic.

Disagree.   While his refusal to listen/learn is frustrating, he isn’t being toxic.  One may even suspect he’s trolling at this point trying to provoke responses that will result in actions due to their delivery style.  

 

Best to simply disengage.

yes but that is my ''opinion that I am entitled to'' so you providing a valid argument means nothing to me a helpless victim of wotb hierchal community.

  It’s obvious the points he is trying to make are all based out of anger or entitlement. “I can, therefore I’m right”, it’s a familiar song and dance. 

 

  I “can” go to the golf course and tee my ball up on the 1st tee wearing a pair of cut offs, work boots and a wife beater after paying my green fees. They’re going to ask me to leave. I “can” argue “I already paid” and discrimination at that point but they’re going to call the sheriff. You’re the lawman, how is that going to play out?

WOTB is a team game. Every loss is a loss by the TEAM,  and every win is a win by the TEAM. For anyone to suggest that losses are soley due to any one player's gameplay is just as silly as suggesting that wins are. Every player contributes to a greater or lesser degree to all wins and losses.

Or one may suggest I'm simply standing up for myself in the face of unjustified criticism. If I am not breaking any rules of the game, or playing it any differently to thousands of other players, then I don't deserve these personal attacks.

 

Best to simply disengage. 

 

Yes, indeed. I didn't start this, and it's not the first time I've been singled out and made a topic of discussion. Posters should confine themselves to the purpose of this forum which is about the game, not the players.

Okay fine I'll bite.  You are correct in saying WOTB is a team game.  But, what you haven't learned from a dozen threads with hundreds of posts is this:  While WOTB is a team game, your team does not determine your WR, you determine your WR.  You are 1/7th of the team, if you can influence the team to win more your WR goes up, if you can't it goes down.  Therefore, your WR is up to you, not your team.  You might get a good team sometimes, you might get a bad team sometimes, but when it all averages out you are the master of your own WR.  Extrapolating from the previous statement, if you determine your own WR, and if it turns out that you are a bad player, then you are directly causing more losses for your teams than you are directly causing wins.  Therefore, while you can't usually say for any one match in particular that a loss is due to one single player, you can say that a single bad player will tend to cause losses in their games.  

 

I know, your first instinct is to come up with a counter-argument, but try to resist that impulse this once and think about what was said.  Your play determines your winrate.  You influence your team, either positively or negatively, causing wins or losses.  You can't always make a team win, and even if you afk you can't always make a team lose, but you have to realize that you have an effect.  Don't respond!  Just think about it, meditate on it, let it soak slowly into your brain, these waves of thoughts focusing themselves into a single point, like a lump of carbon being squeezed into a hard diamond of knowledge that says you do finally understand that although it's a team game, your play is what truly determines your winrate.

This statement leads one to believe that you don't understand personal responsibility in wins and losses.  Plus, I've seen plenty of your threads and posts.  I think your feeling that unicums and 40%ers are at odds with one another stems from the fact that you feel so many things in this game are out of your control that it's unfair that some people get to be uni's and some people get to be 40%ers, but that is flawed.  Some unicorns are just born that way but most of them started as 40%ers and earned their way to unicum-hood.  I feel, and I could be wrong, but I feel that you wouldn't be so stressed about the things unicums say if you actually believed you could become a unicum yourself.  And I think you can become a unicum.  But in order for that to happen, you have to understand that it's up to you to become a unicum or to stay in the 40's or whatever.  Once you see WR for what it is, and you see your capability for what it is, talking about 40's and uni's won't really matter so much anymore.

That was a joke! I thought the wording was plain enough to indicate that. I believe it was something like ..  "note: my winrate and stats bear absolutely no relationship whatsover to my true performance".
