My patience is wearing thin.:playing:

 

I haven't left a match or abandoned any teams today yet, and not yesterday either, and I have played a whole bunch of matches in that time. That's almost a record for me!:izmena:

 

I have been behaving nicely for the most part, I am trying to at least, but that doesn't mean that I won't criticize those who deserve to be criticized. 40%ers and all players who are below 50% should just shut their mouths and they shouldn't be allowed to give orders or tactical and strategic advice during matches.

 

In the last 4 matches that I've played, I checked afterwards, and every player who gave out an order at the beginning of the match was a 40%er. Any player who loses more than they win should just shut their mouths, because they do not know how to play, and they do not know the recipe for success in a match. 

 

I disagreed with virtually every direction called in each match. It is a miracle that I didn't abandon those teams. Normally I would, because I have no patience for nubs, and especially not loud mouth nubs who give orders that are below 50%.

 

These players are deliberately trying to lose and throw the match, because any team following the advice of a player that loses more than they win will also end up losing very often. They are worse than an AFK player, because an AFK player is just one less player on the team, while the 40% loudmouths are trying to get the entire team to follow them into committing suicide.

 

My advice to any player who doesn't know how to play the game properly yet is to just shut your mouth during matches, because you are ruining and sabotaging every match that you're in whenever you try to pretend that you're General Patton and you give out an order, as if you know what you are talking about. You don't. You are a nub and a dirty scrub and I definitely reserve the right to abandon any match which has such saboteurs on the team, if they open their mouths.

 

From now on, all 40%ers who gives out directions should immediately be reported for sabotage and giving aid and comfort to the enemy. They are more of a threat than the enemy is.

 

As I said above, my patience is wearing thin with those types. In spite of all this, I've still been behaving nicely today. We'll see how long that lasts.:justwait:

Oh dear God I agree with you.

I've long advocated that any player who loses more than they win should have their team and global chat shut off for the first 30 seconds of the match.

Feeling that pain.  My last battle I dealt 4,136 HP in my M46 out of our teams 9,400 total output. My six “teammates “ ranged from 40.03 to 47.56 WR. They all took 40-seconds to even leave spawn. I’m done with worrying about WR, and have moved to just farming HP by following the nubs and picking up the easy hits and kills.

that might work - so if I call "<<Left<<" and a 64% pops up next to me then maybe people will listen to me instead of the people with 43% calling "town right pls all"

 

only problem is winrate can obviously be inflated by playing low tiers - maybe show the winrate they have in the tank they are in?


WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

I'd be fine with that... Even if it looked at 30 day win-rate at that tier.  Something, anything that screams "HEY DONT LISTEN TO THAT GUY" if that guy is someone who shouldn't be giving direction.

Folks under 50% in a tier shouldn’t be able to chat.

That's actually a great idea!:playing:

 

Some people have long wanted something like XVM for Blitz, but I don't think that's ever going to happen, so people should just forget about it. I don't think that WG wants it.:izmena:

 

Your idea is good because it means that it would be fully voluntary, and only those who choose to chat would have their WR revealed when doing so.:justwait:

Okay, I'm assuming you're talking about high tiers, since y'all generally do.  But as someone who has just happily brought all the lines he wants up to T5, being 46% and having watched a bunch of sk8xtrm and bushka (and even some DMG) videos seems to mean I've got a lot more of a clue than 2/3 of the people at my tier.  Yeah, sometimes one of you 60%ers is slumming it down there, but for the most part it consists of people who think that their KV has a stinking forcefield around it and just sit in the middle of an open field.

 

Not saying I'm a good player.  I'm absolutely not.  But I'm just *barely* beginning to learn how to carry.  I'm still highly team-dependent.  So I try my damnedest to get my team to freaking cooperate with me and NOT all go yolo-ing at 7 reds in entrenched positions, one at a FREAKING time.

 

So yeah. I call out the basic meta positions.  Caves on BGV. By the bridges on Falls Creek. Hill on Mines and Mirage. Middleburg, idk WHAT to do with that stupid map. Hell, I actually stop to type just to get people OUT of town, when I'd rather be driving.

 

Besides, the little colored star already pops up next to everyone's name. Just sayin'.

What happened to your “if I’m insulted I quit” strategy?

#4 in the LeKpz 41 (with TwisterCup camo), #6 in the M41 Walker-Bulldog, and #8 in the T37

This is what BlitzStars is reporting, so I might be reading something incorrectly...

Yes, it is meaningless.:playing:

 

Almost everybody has 5 stars, including 40 and 30 percenters. And then there are those who have zero stars, but we won't mention them.:justwait:

Ah. As idiotic as it may seem, I just assumed that was tied to something important - I've basically never paid any attention to it, as I always focused on actually playing the game.  Now I see it's tied to Military Honor, which is absolutely pointless.

 

Maybe if they tied that to winrate, instead?  But winrate does not a good leader make... I've already seen my share of raging imbeciles with 50+% winrate. And just because someone has a crap winrate in their current tank shouldn't negate them, either - what if you just bought that tank, and maybe even had a couple of bad matches with it?  Doesn't mean you don't know how the meta should work.

 

Maybe if MH was somehow made more useful somehow?

 

Also. I have a very hard time understanding how one *gets* to T10 and has a sub-45% winrate. I mean, just... HOW?
