You can just keep on counting until you run out of numbers.  WoT Blitz just made it to easy to advance into the higher tiers 8-10.  I am now routinely seeing people around 1000 games driving tier ten tanks and they are all Bozo's.  All of them.  Running the game into the dirt.  Nothing like being in a tier 8 tank you are grinding then be low tier in a battle and you have more combined games than the entire rest of the team put together X2.  Then when I'm the only guy left being called a noob for not rushing out into the open to be killed like a moron.  Sure wish it was harder to obtain tier 8 and above.  I guess money talks!  Rant over :)

You're spot on.  The game needs to be more adamant in pushing a tank guide on the players, because this game is filled with people who are mostly ignorant of tactics and tank mechanics.

Tanks:  _X: T110E5, T110E3, FV215b(183), IS-7, Obj.140  _IX: M103, T-54  _VIII: IS-6, T34, Lowe, T-44, IS-6, IS-3D  _VII: T-43, Comet, E25, AT-15A, SU-122-44
Usually on in the evenings Pacific time.  Intake Contact for Triarii Clan (PM for details)

It should be mandatory to watch a unicum driver video on the proper implementation of each tank you get before it is unlocked to drive.

 

   It is designed to be a fun pickup game - but it is also competitive, and it's frustrating when an E100 flanks - or a M48A1 rushes into battle with it's turret backwards, or drives in reverse at the enemy.

The tiers should have qualifying test like race car games.

On the flip side tiers 9 and 10 should not always loose so much money each game.

How about add some electric shock when you die - put some pain in the game to make it real!  That would stop me from charging out and dying too quick.  My iPhone can read my fingerprint.  We put a man on the moon... Come on WOT Blitz people;)

  • I hope you realize that without the sub-50% cohort acting as the on duty potatoes, it falls on the 50-55 guys to fill the potato slots in the lineups. If tier X was restricted to, let's say, 60+ WR, many of us will fast become the potatoes at the hands of the 70+ players.

So I just finished (and lost) a Tier X game.

 

Red:

T110E3

IS-7 x 2

T62A

IS-8

M46 Patton 

Ferd

 

Green:

IS-7 (me)

Jg Pz E100

T110E5

T110E3

M103

Conq

Cent 7/1

 

Copperfield - we got the good side.  Should have been easy day right?

 

Conq bombs past the hull down spot, no one flanks, and our E3 is a 13.5k 40% WR player., I get 4.3k damage and 3 kills, the JgPz gets 3.2k and 2 kills, the E5 gets 1.4K and the rest don't get anything noticeable (under 500).

  Red snipes from flank - cuts up the Conq, then others who rush out.

, I get the 2 IS-7's and the 62a (thats gotten behind the JgPz), Jg Pz gets killed by snipers, and down to 12 Health - the Ferd gets me when I have him to a 1 shot.

 

 

Short answer: 4 of the 7 green players had no idea how to play their tank or the map.

Yes and no, there is the good, the bad, and the ugly.   Some of the X tier tankers are very ugly.  The unfortunate aspect is it is hard to encourage them to educate themselves by the time they have gotten Tier X tanks.

  I'm no unicum by far, but I'm trying to get better.

 

Some folks clearly don't care how they play, and that is fine, it's a free game, and we want everyone to have fun.  BUT, the problem is when someone's fun hurts others.  I'm way past raging, and into the acceptance zone - but I also understand that some are WAY more competitive than I, and how infuriating it is for them to have potatoes on green (no one complains when red filled the potato cart though that I can see )

I would rather play against the best guys than the bozos that don't have a clue how to play.  At least then I have a team where an E100 doesn't flank on Winter Malinovka and gets to the battle when it's over.  Or the guy who has 100's of battles in his E75 with a win rate of 28% etc. etc.  etc.

I don't like the battles where my side overwhelms the red team.  Its no fun either.  This seems to now be the norm for the game.  One side dominates the other and it's over fairly quickly.  More games more money I guess.  I for one an just completely tired of it.

While the number of potatoes are astounding, I don't think the number of games matter.

 

Had a 14000 game Cent rushing through the middle on Oilfields, didn't look for cover, didn't look for hull down.  This is when the rest of the team was going to the caves.  If he went as well, he would have been hulling down like a brick wall.  But instead, just straight out solo rushed.

 

There are so many 10k+ game noobs out there, its just pathetic.  Sure 1k games and tier 10s, you could argue that they are still learning.  But 10k+?
