Sometimes, even though I’m a good player, zone out and do 0 dang. Either bad positioning or not paying attention to ram composition because I was too sleepy :(

​Many probably didn't like the spare parts system and gave up there. There are always more noobs than pros in any game lol

 

 

 

100%

 

I have an M60 sitting in my garage as well as a couple Deep Purple Euro and NA Server accounts where I have spent a lot of real life money, as soon as the spare parts system came out (after getting close to eliting loads of tier Xs) I gave up. The money suck became more than the fun in the game. They basically took an amazing game, and made it an obvious money suck.

The game used to have a real potential end point - you could possibly acquire all the tanks and elite them all with 100 games and deep purple stats - it took a lot of time and money but I loved this game - (most of my tanks on my preroll accounts were top 100 and many more were top 100). But the spare parts system meant that it would never be possible to ever get all the tanks elite. Whats the point of playing a game where it is not possible to ever finish it?

The game would have amazing staying power as well. By the time a player was getting to a point where I was, there was a real attraction to become a community member. I joined a great clan, started to move towards Community Contributor status, was starting to make some videos, basically I was helping their community grow. 

They went full potato and in my opinion, they killed what was growing into one of the most amazing gaming environments on the web.


                                        

WoT Blitz - :Legend of BBIC

But if two tier IX flank - its all over - I'm gonna sit at home and flank while watching pron - and the best flanking shoes? Someone else's Nikes obviously

If you see Tricks and Dix in a plat, just adopt a BBIC playstyle, you can't win - leave your shoes next to your tank, we'll collect them after the game.

MM does a "WR culling" if you go high enough, in my experience. Go on a great WR long enough and you'll get 10+ loses sooner or later no matter how good you are.

 

no, no, no, no.......

 

You guys do understand a bell curve right? If you have bad players you have to have equal amount of good players? To have a 40% player someone had to be winning on the other side. The issue is the average WR is 48 or 49due to draws so you will see more sub50 players

 

I have played a few rating battles and there are more 50+ players than minus, so if you want a balanced challenge play that.

The MM is dynamic and stacks odds to stop runs of wins or losses. I know you might not believe it.

Just met a 64wr chiri. He had 25k battles and 65wr. We won by pure chance. AT15A finished him off with 1 sec to spare. 2 bounce in arow in my victory was sheer luck. And AT15A had 41wr and did well 

Only accepts plats. Those that need help in grinding or wants to do stupid stuff, invite me. other than that, dont.

maybe the reason why theres a lot of noobs is because they don't know how to read a certain guide on a certain tank. thats basically what I keep on doing everytime I get a new tank, read, learn,rinse,repeat. so whats the point of de guides den, anyways lets go back to the topic. theres this guy su 100y in the reds on hills going back our butts, then he shotted the Churchill 7, but ofc he died because he got overnumbered so he/she doesn't know how to use tactics is almost annoying.

 I am grinding 4 tanks, it has became a very hard and difficult grind. And being forced to play under such awful play condition, it became a chore rather than fun.

grinding 8 tanks. beat dat :P although its like going from lvl 1 to lvl 100 in another game. very hard because u switching from tank to tank.

What this highlights is games can be perfectly balanced and blowouts will still occur. Even two teams of Unicums will have results like your screenshot. Rating battles balance the game with people with the same relative skill. If you want a team of unicums then you need to be in the top rating. Simple.

Please stop with this, the US admin made a statement saying no skill or prior results influence the MM. If you think they are lying then Please show evidence. Not a patent that has never been used in blitz according to the devs. I think I won 27 in a row or something, glad  the stacked odds wasn’t working that day....

With great regret the blitz Asia community is informed that one more good player has decided to stop playing the game . I will quit this game on coming Sunday . I do not know when or if I will be back . Maybe 6 months , maybe 1 year .....

Oh, wow, Wargaming made a statement? Then it must be true. Just like their statements that certain premium tanks are available for a limited time only, never to return. And that they will take action against AFK players. And that they don't allow offensive player names and will take action if you report them. Yeah, they never say anything that isn't true. That would be crazy!
