As a poker player, I feel a little clarification is necessary as to the terminology.  I'm not 100% on the history of the term, but I believe it DID come from the pinball world, where if you knocked the machine around too much trying to keep your ball in play, you'd set off its motion switches and would automatically lose that game/ball with the word "TILT" lit up on the scoreboard.

 

So yes, "Tilt" is the term, but the phrase isn't "I'm tilting".  It's "on tilt", as such:

 

"Man these noobs are ticking me off so much, I've been on tilt for hours!"

"Haha, that guy sure is steamed.  He's on tilt for sure!"

 

Intentionally trying to put other players on tilt is definitely a thing in poker, and very effective if you're good at it.

When some trendy new atrocity has brought you to your knees

First post, new to WOT.

 

Just wanted to chime in with my surprise to read of the Dunning-Kruger Effect mentioned in a discussion on an internet gaming forum.  After reading in-game chat, I didn't expect to read anything like this on the forum.

Excellent post.  Having had an 8 game losing streak that followed a 14 game winning streak, I kept having to tell remind myself that with a 50% Win-Loss ratio, my losing streak didn't mean I had lost my mojo any more than my winning streak had meant I had any mojo in the first place...

I read this.  I really did.  Then last night happened.  Ugh.  Need to remember the three-game rule and just fold 'em.

 

I'd love to blame it on bad teams or some such, but honestly, my game was just off last night.  C'est la guerre.

 

EDIT: Took my T29 for a quick spin this morning and had a great game.  3 kills, top damage and even a compliment from my comrade in a KV-3.  Much better!!!

Dude, suckin' at something is the first step to being sorta good at something.

Is this pinned? If not it should be. This is perhaps one of the most important guides for the game IMHO.

Sadly not, you can contact either CC_Sly or Alo8ight if you want them to pin it though.

Yep. This is where I am at now. I have never been particularly a stellar player, but I am well below my expectations at this time. I am going to follow this advice and take a break from tier VI play.

Thanks for the bump!

These posts just get buried too deep!  Jensen, you wrote my blitz resume and I thank you for publishing it here :P.  This is johandelange in Blitz wayyyyyy too often, especially when real life gets stressed too. Pity the poor fool who ends up outscoring me and even winning for our team, but has me riding with him after a classic yolo killed me off early for the battle BEFORE all that is known. Hell, I get way too critical and defensive, and those are my alarm bells to take things easy, set aside that iPad and take a breather.  I end up thinking out new ways to yolo mostly, but once in a while those quiet moments actually come up with one move on a map that earns me an ACE, 4/5/6/7 kill game or just makes me the dmg king for the moment.  Patience is really awarded in this game AFTER you set your strategy with your team (read:patience is not camping).

 

So to whoever breathed new life into this post of Jensen's, thank you sir! I needed to read this again today.


My second attempt at becoming a purple in Blitz :teethhappy:

Team mates, please help me by reading Lert's excellent guide to basic tanking.

Thanks for writing this Jensen. I caught the latest TankBoom yesterday and it was ironic as I was in severe "TILT" earlier in the morning. 6 losses out of 7 games. I finally gave up and stopped playing. An hour later, I'm listening to the podcast and completely relating to your discussion. Wise words and great advice. A most enjoyable interview! :)

Indeed, though I have read the guide a couple of times, interviewed Jensen about it, and more - I still fall prey to it from time to time.

 

Glad the podcast has gotten this guide fresh attention. :)
