How do we improve the forum?

 

Concrete ideas please.

blatant pandering. Who are the people that still make content? Who are the helpful unis? Who has smarter thumbs and can link videos from op contributors?

Ban stat comparing?

I have no clue how that would actually play out, (and it 1000 percent is not going to happen) but it would sure beat hearing incessant yapping about how someone's wn8 is six points higher than someone else's.

 

There, a concrete idea.

Make of it what you will.

More positivity, makes it more inviting to lurkers and new players

I.E. Stop posting “idiot teams are ruing my game herba blurba” threads that nobody cares about and doesn’t contribute, and stop complaining in general. You aren’t saying anything that hasn’t been said 5 billion times already so why do we need to see it again? Instead of posting threads about bad teams, post threads about good teams you find. If you find yourself itching to write a snarky reply about how there are no good teams, you’re part of the problem.

And then what do people do when some drooling neanderthal who hardly knows the difference between his thumbs and the iPad starts giving advice on how to play the IS-4? Should some hypothetical new person take the advice of the neanderthal  just because they somehow managed to type it, or look at the merit (or lack thereof) of the results they get from playing that tank that way? And why shouldn't other people point out that "Hey, that guy's got no clue on what he's saying"?

More stuff like this;

IMO; untrained players are the real reason the game is becoming difficult and frustrating for many players and being the common media for discussion, this is the logical place to vent. I can understand that and have a lot of the same frustrations.

 

This forum is where I learned what I know; doing them consistently is my issue  .We are here to share experiences, good and bad and discuss solutions maturely.  That is what new and old tankers need the forums for.

 

Discord has it's use and can be valuable, but is difficult for some of us.

 

Other than youtube, this is the only real outlet for learning, and that is what the forum should continue to provide.

A knowledgeable and helpful player base is the only real control we have to make things better.

MM and RNG and RSBG(or whatever) is out of our hands and we must battle that out on the field.


Don't rush inBe patient and Don't brawl unnecessarilyKnow your tanks and enemy tanks;  Know your tanks' role;  

Knowing maps allows situation awareness; Mini-map is a mighty map;  Drive to cover;

Fight like you have no armor; Relocate and reset camo oftenBe the lover of cover;  

Hull down is OP; Stay on high ground; Don't go where you don't know

The number one fact of this game is how bad most of the player base is.

 

And the number two fact is Wg’s complete unwillingless to address that fact in anyway.

 

People are going to come to the forum to blow off steam about that.  That aint changing.

 

I’m certainly going to continue doing it, and I don’t mind at all when others do.

 

If those threads trigger you, ignore them and move on.   Block the people who post them.  They are here to stay.

Totally agree. A lack of training means poor teams. Poor teams leads to bad experiences and venting on the forums. That’s how improve the forums. 

 

Training should motivate players. WG could reward players for completing training tasks. It’s been said before. 

 

Missions are not a substitute. But they could be adapted. Some missions have a training feel to them - win and survive in 7 games is one I think. But the training aspect always seems incidental. Might be better for a player to focus on skills. Spotting in lights and meds. Bouncing damage in heavies. Accuracy and damage in TDs.

 

Training missions should not be dependent on battle outcome. 

 

Other than that... you could just Mod the [edited] out of the forums and nuke any thrash threads.

What it takes is for good players willing to offer their time to help others willing to learn.

 

It takes a special person for that though.
