There have got to be some measure taken to improve the player base quality at certain tiers. Let's not even bring WR into this. Let's just bring # of battles into question. The gist of the story is that perhaps there need to be requirements to play certain tiers. I know this might encourage AFKing even more to attain said # of battles...however...something has to change.
I just left a wipe out match where 3 people on the team had 150-260 battles in Tier 6/7. The rest were in the 2-10k+ range and let's just say they still don't know how to win.
Supremacy match and literally the entire team sat at spawn while the enemy capped all 3 caps in the first 1 minute. I was driving an SU152 overlooking the cap closest to our spawn watching it turn red and no target seen as there was building cover.
Not one person on the team responded in chat when I call "B and C" as B was closest. They sat there, some had turrets spinning others had their tanks spinning and then 5 drove off to try an recapture the furthest point A in the dunes and in the open.
Amazingly the 4 survivors sat out in the dunes as the enemy reached 1000 points in what seemed a record match to me as they had capped all 3 points so quickly and retained the caps.
