Here is a guide of the REAL RULES OF WOT:

(1) WIN RATIOS are an average of TEAM WINS vs losses, read TEAM. There are tons of over 50% WR players out there who just sit, hide, cower, and run and show their cannon when there’s nobody left to kill without firing a shot... That player still has a high WIN RATIO. So, next time someone scoffs at you because THEY have a 50% and you have a lowly 49% just laugh, that person platooned (emphasis on toon) their way to their WR. LOOK AT INDIVIDUAL STATS.

 

(2) Will all due respect, saying “I got my 60% in just 200 battles” is a crock, the 200 battles happened after having changed identities 200 times and playing a million games. LoL

 

 

(3) There is probably no way to measure how constant changes in game, version after version have affected new players’ ability to earn credits and get to high WR but I tend to imagine!

 

(4) When tanks vanish in front of you and WOT blames it on radar, then the enemy tank is still there! You just can’t shoot at it because... well, the radar says it isn’t there! Curiously enough, enemy tanks can still see YOU!

 

(5) I have over 12,000 battles, and I began doing stats for 1,000 of them - yes, I am that anal... Turns out that I end up in bottom tier slightly more than 50%, so it is statistically negligible. BUT, some tanks automatically end up in lowest tiers a higher percentage of the time - so if you get that shiny brute premium tank hoping to wreak havock on poor newbs, I am sorry to say, YOU will likely end up surrounded by impenetrable beasts who will tear you an orifice.

 

(6) On the same count, however I did find a stat that was NOT negligible - the amount of times I end up in teams where opponents have more than 30% higher WR than the one I am in. Yes, I went tank by tank more than 200 times (told you I was anal) and added WR divided by the number of tanks in each team and, lo and behold, more than 60% of the time I am stuck with teams with lower WR average.

 

WHY ME, you may ask? Well, cause I spend money, and trying to get to that elusive WR takes a lot of it, and WOT enjoys my money, sooo, why not build in a little trick into the algorhytm?

 

NOTE: If you have a 48.5 WR player up against a 50% WR one, the actual difference is enormous as:

 

(7) The higher your WR gets, the tougher it gets to raise it, no matter what tank or tier you use to do so. I play from tier 8 to tier 3, and in the latter, I end up in more tier 4 battles with worst teams than in upper tiers with no special tank! So in the past two months, grinding has become harder and harder the bettrer I get.

 

(8) WOT customer service is, for lack of a better word, useless in most cases - most gripes you may have with nasty players insulting you and so on require you to do a screen cap at the precise moment the insult/attack/misbehavior occurred... which, on an IPad, is nearly impossible to do without getting shot or going offline (and WOT bloody well knows that).

 

Sooo, now that you have the ability to record gameplay on the iPad you can go back to your video, put it in pause, and do a screen cap. Then push 200 inane web client buttons, and fill out a form that requires you to have memorized the player’s name - as in Player_39877845989q28779390103883####@092b [somedumbclan]. Or go back and forth from your screen cap to the form, and back, and forth, and... you get it.

 

(9) When WOT finally answers, they will say something like, “we will deal with it someday, have a nice one!” : P

 

(10) If you come accross a Leopard (tier V) RUN AWAY, its the nastiest overall tank in the game and, in good player’s hands YOU WILL BE KILLED. Just saying...

 

(11) You WILL get ADDICTED TO THE GAME ANYWAY, regardless of how unfair, unbalanced, and ruthlessly malevolent the game makers are - so think of it like going into the casino - you will lose your shirt but you will go on and on until you lose your pants as well.

 

(12) to those who say you can play without spending a dime, I agree, you actually spend hundreds of dollars! 

 

(13) nuff said.

Oh, so it's a cry thread over getting chat banned. Makes more sense now.

 

No, you worthless [expetive deleted to avoid ban] it is a series of serious game play issues in satirical form [look up what that means in google or your mom’s dictionary, emphasis on dic] in which the LATEST issue was the SPEED by which some blokes manage to report behavior while users with iPads are made to suffer with endless clicks in order to do the same.

Where exactly should I direct my hostility? Trump? Dont’t NEED a hug but they are always welcome! 

LATEST STATS: My team average Win Ratio (individual win ratios divided by number of tanks) - 47.82 

RED average win ratio - 57 

Like I mentioned earlier, average RED WR is 10+ over my teams CONSISTENTLY

 

WOT claims (answering my compalint) they do not match teams based on ability but merely tank specs in order to make it a RANDOM balance, and, as WOT claims, randomness means I will sometimes be stuck with [expletive deleted] players... WOT also says that being thrown in against better players will help to hone my skill ... kinda “learn by burn” or “be great by being raped.” 

 

Truth is, by my count, there is NOTHING RANDOM about games getting harder the higher my WR becomes... Please let me kniw how to upload screen caps from my iPad to illustrate my point - WOT makes it hard as hell!

Hm, hit a nerve with that one, did I? Such a sensitive little guy. Go right ahead, we've got a therapy cat somewhere around here, let it all out. Have a good sob. You'll feel better.

This may be a dumb question.......but I just looked at buying a quality tank.   

 

The price was quoted in silver dollars (lots) and silver stars???   I have gold FreeEx stars, I have silver dollars, i have upgrade stars with oak leaves around them, but according to the purchase I need lots of just plain silver stars for the research cost.....don't have any!!!!.   

 

 Where do I get them???

Your account is old, lots of games in the last 90 days, some before, 2k+ battles...

 

But 6 tanks played total, 4 premiums, a tier one, a tier two...

 

Did you buy this account recently?

 

Or have you never managed to move up tiers?

 

Perhaps the most confusing account I have ever seen.

 

I'm not sure where to begin here, so could you explain what you DO KNOW about the tech tree?

I just play......have 3 tanks   a T15, won in one of those bonus crates (reminds me of my Mini Cooper with a bazooka out the sunroof).....but fun), a Panzer v/iv and a Russian ISU122....last 2 bought as premium offers.   I see other tanks on the tech tree and want something better, with an upgrade stream.......trying to understand how to buy one!!!
