And any tier 4 and below tank :trollface:

oh god... Dracula... Every time I see some moronic 40er roam around with it during the first minute, trying to ram someone, a little part of me dies deep inside... Its a shame I was new to Blitz when that event was running... I did not get that obviously because I still did not know if id stick around. Now, I regret it, because that tank fits my play style perfectly... And 40ers ram with... ram because its fast.. ffs.. I cri everitiem

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" 

 

Any form of entertainment that requires positive and competent actions, from anonymous participants, is doomed to provide you with only anger and frustration.

 

Some people enjoy this frustration and the cathartic venting it produces.


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

I've noticed that all the tanks nerfed are high tier, high skill ceiling tanks. Terrible in the hands of an average or below, but insanely good in the hands of someone skilled.

T-34 (2nd), Type 98 Ke-Ni (3rd), Pz. IV Schmalturm (4th) A-20 (6th)T34 Independance (6th), T69 (8th), Angry Connor (8th)T110E4 (9th), Ram II (9th)

Top 100: KV-2, Cruiser Mk. IV, Spähpanzer Ru 251, T-46, Spähpanzer SP I C, M4A2E4 Sherman, Type 5 Chi-Ri, VK 16.02 Leopard, M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo, T-54 ltwt., Pz.Kpfw. V/IV, Helsing HO, SU-152, SU-100M1, T54E1, Hetzer, T34

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...

Hey not all unicums are bad. I have had more trouble in his game ever since the beginning when I sucked and now with people under 55 then people over 60.

Adding to this it seems like the tanks that most threatened the is Spam at tier VIII are the ones that got hit with the Nerf bat the hardest.

The game seems to be headed towards making it as easy as possible for a new player who just bought a tier 8 premium tank.

 

I still see the most exciting and teamwork driven battles (before the missile tank) at tiers V and VI.

What about the midfielders?

50-59's

 

I watched a midfielder go off on a team last night like he was some sort of god in this game. At first, I thought there was some truth to how bad we were. That changed though, as he plummeted into a vortex of vitriol, all I could do was laugh at him. It really is just a game to me, but that doesn't mean I don't like to win. It just means when I lose, I don't lose my mind.

We're unaccountably lucky that we don't face the unicums all the time. Or no, I mean we're unaccountably unlucky that we don't face the potatoes all the time. I mean, we're all wondering whether we should have just bagged it and rerolled long ago.

 

I mean, look, I just went over a 1.3 damage ratio... Next stop, Unicum City!

Don't forget that many players are young children and simply don't have the capacity to play well.  When I see dumb stuff happening I imagine a literal child at the controls of that tank and everything makes sense + it's easier to calm down.

This should be banned. Just don't know how it could be controlled.

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

You do realize that there's a sizable amount of people including me that don't have the time to reroll right?

This is actually my first post ever. I am almost 50 years old and really enjoy this game. I hate losing, have invested real money, and started playing to enjoy spending time with my son who is 17. When I first started playing, I wasn't any good. I actually don't know how much better I've even gotten, but I do win. Controlling the tank was a real problem for me at first, but I slugged it out in tier 1-3 and got much better. Unfortunately, some early battles set me in the hole win % wise. I'm well over 4000 battles but still sitting at a 46-47%. As I play, I try to message others that I have faced, sometimes angry, sometimes encouraging, and other times inquisitive as to what I can do to improve my play. I've made a few friends that have allowed me to improve and battle with them and learn, but the largest share of people I've met have been complete idiots. The following reasons are why i think the game suffers:

 

1) The matching system

The algorithm has to go deeper and match more consistently. I'm always stuck in battles with players who only have 100-800 battles under their belt. They got a tier 8 tank by winning it like I did and they're out there pissing everyone off. I usually see this in tiers 4-6, but they've crept in with this missile stuff.

 

2) Lack of respect

I've learned the key to winning is communication. Don't laugh at someone when they're trying to figure out basic battle info. i.e. which way to go, or who will back up who, or who's going to scout. Many more advanced players scoff at other players instead of giving and sharing info.

 

3) Cheating

Yes guys, it's out there. The guy who upgrades his armor stats with a hack in the PC. When I have a fully decked out tier 8 and I know where to hit you, and i'm bouncing every shot including HE, there's a rigged tank. I've seen it more often as of late.

 

While I totally agree that anyone 40% and lower should just delete the game, I also know guys who have learned on one account, then hid their stats buy creating a new account. It's way obvious when there's a guy with 700 battles in tier 3 coming out with a 65% win rate and it's obvious they are very experienced. I'm not that guy. Just know that there are those of us that are in my win % bracket that do take the game seriously.

No Hax dude. It's called RNG. Bad rolls it happens to all of us. This is a client server can't Hax it. Although there is a hitskin mod that is a cheat. But that is a player download.

All I know is that there was no way a M41 bounces shots from my Pershing or an IS 3 like this one did. The IS 3 dude was complaining about it too. We all know the RNG is f-ed in the game.
