So... I was going through my daily routine in Blitz... You know, a normal day... play some battles, lose some, get tilted, put everything out on some 40er that ruined that last game.. and call it a day...

So, I was at this last step, I was so mad yesterday, after losing a couple battles on KPZ, because my team decided to flank... So, I could not hold the enemy team, and heavies just died before meds made it behind the enemies... Then they died... and we had quite a few players with 0 damage... so.. I chose the lucky one and started an extremely pleasant conversation with him/her. So, this person ended up suggesting that players like me ruined this game, and without us, the community would be less toxic... I could not agree more, its unicums that make this community so toxic... See, If everyone who played this game were 30-40ers, this game would literary have the least toxic community in the gaming industry... Its a well known fact that other than WR, 30-40ers share another common thing - half a brain cell; in extremely rare cases, they even have whopping 1 brain cell; very rare, though...

A typical 30-40er would answer your complaint this way: "Take it easy man, its just a game"; "get a life man, its just a game", etc... So... Players with that WR are not capable of having ambitions, such as winning. Therefore, if this game only had players like that, no one would care if they won or lost. Everyone would be happy by just driving a tenk... cool, right? 14 players rolling out on some map, having fun dying and doing whatever 30-40ers usually enjoy doing... and no one complains because no one cares, sounds great to me...

Unicums and good players in general ruined this game... god dammit...

 


This post is mostly sarcastic, but I did have this kind of conversation with some 40er yesterday... was fun...

Generally agree. But without 40%ers there cannot be 60%ers. Kind of a love/hate relationship.

I never understand that "it's just a game". 

When you've devoted 1000+ hours in the game and ACTUAL money, it's not just a game. It is an investment. It's like someone smashing your car and then telling you, "why you angry, it is only metal"

the two are completely different.  And...it's just a game, an entertainment exspense.  If the game ended today I would not feel cheated, I spent what I have Knowing that the game could change or die at any moment.

They have more brain cells, I guess... I mean, that kind of players usually try to improve at some point...

You pay that money to enjoy something... I dont understand, if its just a game, and whether you win or lose does not matter in the end... Does that mean that they enjoy losing just as much as winning? or, do they hate winning? :D What do you play for, if there is no purpose? Unless losing is another weird way of entertainment... :ohmy:

Even if it is just a game, I still prefer to win - just like with any game.  But, because it is just a game and has no real world consequences, if I happen to lose, I very easily put it behind me and just hit the battle button again.  It makes for much less stressful playing than constantly worrying about wins and loses.

  I get that people think it's just a game or look at it like its entertainment. It's not enjoyable or much fun when you do way more than your part and lose because everyone else can't. Sometimes it's more like work than entertainment, the difference is I'm not getting paid. I go to work because I get paid, not because it's fun or entertaining.

 

  I play the game because I remember a time where the tanks were good enough that my team mates were irrelevent and I could have fun no matter what anyone else did. That's just not true anymore. The tanks suck because the powers that be don't want good players to ruin the experience of the 40% players that make up the majority of their customer base. They don't give a [edited] about the minority that actually have skills, are competitive and/or care about winning because they don't care if anybody wins or loses. They care about keeping people playing. Game integrity for them is based on how many people they can get to spend money.

 

  TLDR - They can't have guys running around ruining the experience for the skrubs because it's bad for business. Hence, everything that we all invested spare parts in is on the nerf list and everything new that comes out is unicum proofed.

Whether it's "just a game" or not, I have trouble comprehending how these players can be so terrible at a video game. I mean, I'm not that great at video games, but I'm positive my over all WR has never been below 50%. I came into the game with zero experience playing WOT or mobile shooting games.

good example of that are autoloaders... Some are great but... We have tanks like 50 100, that got nerfed and is not the same as before... and this new BC 25t. In hands of a unicum old 50 100 was really strong, and its a tier 8; and lets be honest, most of scrub red wallet noobs are in that tier, and none of them would be able to use 50 100, because its a paper tank with a deadly gun; therefore, why would WG upset them? Lets nerf it then - the best idea ever... Actually balanced BC25t would be OP as well in hands of a good player... its a paper tank too, so 40er with 1 brain cell would never be able to use it; therefore, its nerfed to the ground. I have not played BC25t yet, but it looks really underwhelming compared to what it is on PC... So.. yeah I could not agree more...
