So, I was called garbage again today, well not again but Not the first time I've been insulted for my stats. Sadly, no one believes I'm trying to Improve myself (the reason of my many forum posts). So, yeah. When you lose a game always remember to pick a certain name on your team and hammer him with insults to the point in which he quits the game, just because his stats are lower than yours.

Shot, don't worry about those types of people.  If they were unmasked and not hidden by the internet, they would not be saying those things.  It just shows how bad they really are and who the bigger person is in this deal.
Just play the game and attempt to improve as much as you can and leave them to their own devices, they usually go away once ignored enough.

you were probably doing something stupid, like camping base or yoloing into 5 tanks.

nobody just randomly picks someone, you generally have to do something retarded first.

Thanks...Just needed a place to vent, and +1 for you for not insulting me like everyone one else in this post -_-

Deal with it.
.
I'm bad@tanks, terribad, 43% win rate bad.  XVM displays me in throbbing incandescent red.
.
In 2700 battles, and a bunch of postings, I've had an overwhelming positive and supportive response from this community.
.
As bad as I am, I've only noticed one rage against me in all of those battles.  How much abuse are you receiving?
.
I like to play the upper tiers, more interesting tanks and competition.  I've moved up as fast as a welfare warrior can grind 3 lines.
.
II'm not saying nobody bitched about my bonehead mistakes, but I've experienced only one instance of verbal abuse.
.
South spawn at Pearl River.  I'm in my 12t.
.
"Please don't cross the bridge", I chat as the countdown clock starts.  I see that happening all the time.  And after the slaughter of my teammates I've been guilty of chatting "How did that bridge crossing work out?".
.
The chat explodes.  I see "Shitty 600 efficiency" go by.  Someone must be addressing me.
.
"Don't ever give anybody advice again", among other things in the torrent that lasted through the countdown and a few seconds into the battle.
.
I have to admit I was knocked back on my heels, everybody has always been so nice to me, and didn't respond.
.
I was just learning the 12t, and was the first killed in an active scouting maneuver that would have probably worked fine in my ELC.
.
I went to the replay so I could get the player's name.
.
This is the, approximately, 2500th best player in the world.  His stats are amazing.
.
We've seen those squiggly and jagged lines in NoobMeter.  Not this guy.
.
The lines all looked like nearly perfectly smooth parabolas, laid on their side.  They started off almost vertically when this player started playing WOT, and gently curved into a smooth ascent.  At no point did any graph reveal a value that was less than the value that proceeded it.
.
All the numbers, of course, were unicum.
.
What was also impressive is that this guy averaged 46 games a day over his WOT career.
.
SerB said the average battle takes 7 minutes.  With this guy's survival rate, I suspect his average battle takes longer.
.
If this guy plays 46 games a day, and each takes 7 minutes, he's playing 37 1/2 hours a week!
.
So who do you think this guy is?
.
Perhaps he's a Navy Seal, who relaxes between missions by kicking every opponent's ass in WOT and verbally abusing any terribad noob who dares to chat in a battle.
.
Maybe he's a brain surgeon, who fills the limited time after his long hours at the operating table, sleep and 37 1/2 hours a week playing WOT by rescuing cats from trees,
.
Or maybe he's a pasty white, doughy, looser, dwelling in his mother's basement playing video games all day.
.
Who knows?
.
What I know is that if my presence in high tier battles pisses him off this bad, that's the best reason of all to move up the tiers.
.
Constructive criticism?  Learn from it.
.
Abuse?  Some broken soul, victimized by forces in life beyond their control is lashing out in rage over your past performance in a video game.
.
Get over it.  Work to get better, and have fun.

It bugs me that people call people out on their stats, at least before the person starts denying that stats are an indicator of skill.  
But coming up, you will be able to hide them.

Until then, keep getting better.

Sorry, just annoys me when I say "Im Improving" and the response I get is "Wanna Improve? Quit the game, Scrub"

Sorry but I don't always care about stats, I care about if they sucked or not in the game I was in. I don't care if you're a 60%er or a 40%er if a player does something stupid, I'm going to call them on it.

Said individual called me out specifically on my stats, right after he died, when I was no where near him. with 3 kills.

The fact that you said you were improving is enough.All you can do is keep trying and to hell with what anyone says.

One thing that bothers me is that the tool that enables such, XVM, does not allow for improvement unless you make a serious undertaking, as due to limitations, it only shows all time stats.

I want to know how well someone is doing "now" and I think 60day would be a better representation of it.

People tend to make themselves feel better by putting others down.  Just ignore it.  There is a simple little fact about WoT.  Its a team based game and there rarely ever one hero.  Get on YT and watch some of the videos this community has posted on training.  You will learn a lot.  Also if you don't have a clan, try to get in one that is willing to platoon and do training rooms with you.  Everyone starts out at the bottom, its what you do with it down the road that matters.

No, trust me, it happens.
A KV-2 gets killed, blames me for his death because I didn't run out and block shots for him (I was in an SU-85b)  :mellow:

Your stats show that you are improving.  Your 30 day is better than your 60 day & your 7 day is better than your 30 day.  You have nothing to worry about.
