 Warning some may find the Salt level high below. 

 

Almost 2/3rds of the recent forum posts are wasted by players complaining about the game, the player base, balance changes etc.  

 

Go back and read threads from 2014.  

 

Spoiler, this is Blitz...

  Players have stunk in tier 1-10 since day 1.  

We used to have x2’s three times a day, and players could and did fail and falter their way to tier X a lot easier then.   Even before I faltered my way to the E5 in Jan 2105 there where complaints about bad players in X.    By Feb 2015 I had failed my way up to all the Medium and Heavy lines (but Russian)  that where available.   

 

Nothing has changed regarding the players.  Most of the player base stinks, and a majority of the stinkers don’t even know they stink.   Heck, we have tons of forum players that stink - and don’t know it/accept it/understand  either.  

 

 

Trouble in high tier? It is a YOU issue.    

 

You can only get so far in this game being a great tanker.    

You can have awesome games and lose.  

  The difference is the great player adapts - and turns losses into wins.  

 

Yes everyone looses sometimes, but you can’t really blame your team.  

 

Why?  You had no right to expect anything, nothing has changed.

If u can't understand how some folks who are incapable of facing 5 on 1 odds in game are upset because they had teamates who weren't up to thier potentials in the match isn't a anyone one person thing at  all in my opinion. It's the fact that folks can jump into any tank their wallet can carry. They have no clue about 85% of what will make them a good team player and help win, it's just what it is in the North American server as of my personal exp. especially when west coast timeframes start to come around......u will see a lot of disjointed separation at spawn and SILENCE u til a better player on reds smoked them. Then the saltiness erupts at times. If we could be assured of at least two solid players not including us per match it would prove more fun IMHO.

I’ve been warning you all for two years now that I’m the problem. 

 

Balance adjustments are one thjng. Nerfing premiums is another. Their right but bad precedent. 

 

And yes, there should be no expectations of a good team. Just an expectation that the above average player and the Unicum in red are equally weighed down.

I thought dealing with a poor team was part of the challenge! Coming out on top despite all odds! I'm usually not good enough to do it, but when I am, whew! 

 

This is a team game where you don't pick your teammates; find any other game with team based PvP and random matchmaking and you'll find similar forum posts regarding the terrible teams that they are plauged with.


I love the ones that need it most.

The only things you achieve by paying anything is to make some things faster.

 

1. Premium tanks - speeds up credit grinding but that is about it

 

2. Premium time - speeds up credit grinding and also boosts XP for tanks and crew.  In the end no matter the tank, you end up with the same tank.  Some just don't have to grind as long.

 

3. Boosters/credits/crates - by spending cash on these what do they gain in advantage over another player?

 

Stats nuts will think this gives people and "advantage" but in the end all the tanks are the same.  It eventually comes down to skill.  Eventually the games played while grinding will be a small percentage of you overall games so skill will eventually determine how good you are.

 

What do you think makes it so "determined".  The Kenny or Lupus?  Helsing (anyone could have earned it for free)?  What tank or something you can buy gives you a total advantage when you click battle?

While I hear you, I don’t remember having so many teams previously at high tier that are very likely to have multiple players at <40%. 

Goal: Suck incrementally less, day by day

The only way this game is pay-to-win is using gold to speed up crew skill training (I will admit to doing this), and skipping stock grinds by using gold-bought-free-XP for modules and golding crews (which I also do).


 

But all of these are only temporary benefits that will give small boosts to win rate because eventually everyone ends up with maxed out crew skills and gets past the stock grind. Over a large number of battles, the benefit of my approach is small.


 

Buying premium tanks is not pay-to-win, because premium tanks are, for the most part, not much better (if at all) than the free tech tree tanks.
