3 A baddie.

I would consider myself a scrub from my overalls but ik I have improved alot :smile:

Everyone starts somewhere.  And everyone will advance at a different rate.  But anyone and everyone at any skill level can try to be a good team member.

This may sound strange, but I don't like being the top tank.  I am a 48 - 49%er, and I am learning.  I have watched videos, and read newb threads.  I still do stupid things, but I try not to.  I am learning the maps, and learning playstyles.  I enjoy teaming with someone who knows what they are doing and learning and winning.  I generally follow directions well, and could care less about getting the kill as long as we win and I am helping.  One of the most satisfying games I played was spotting with my T-49 for two heavies who tore up 5 tanks in a row as we went through the map.  I hate people who just rage and don't give direction.  Tell me, I'll try it.
You are more new to the game, not a noob or a scrub.  Big difference. :)  You are actively learning.  At your game count I was horrible.  So I give you a +1.

Good post. Hopefully it will inspire people, too bad most people that need this won't see it.

I don't really even know how to reply to that without sounding insulting which in all honesty I'm not trying to be so suffice to say that's a dubious suggestion indeed.
Here, take a long look, people can laugh if they'd like, insult like some do or rage.

My beginning could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch, I just recently made it out of the black hole that 'gawd awful' is to now have achieved baddie status.

I'm freekin thrilled.
I actually don't do too half bad now having made the mindset transition from casual here for just the lolz only to a player who wants to improve what WoT is including being a teammate worthy of the name trying to achieve the higher level of game play.   I'm darned-well going to get there though despite being owned sometimes to get there; being taught is how I learn; it's not just about tutorials and videos - it's about getting your hands dirty and not always ending up on the right side of said dirt.
Such is the live of a potato.
But hey, onward and upward and if not for the likes of me trying so darned hard you'd have no cannon fodder or future.
Cheers.

I don't think they should be banned, but they should be banned from my teams.

I think there has to be a line between average and terribad players. Players with 46%, 47%, or 48% WR are typically still quite competent. Maybe they don't know all the weakspots and maybe they don't hull down often enough or look at the map enough or w/e, but they still usually do what they can to win and don't miss multiple shots at a FCM at point blank range. It's when you get to the 44-45% and under range where I think the problem really is. These "deep red" players often are not even trying to win. They have no interest in playing well. Their interest can be surviving or driving around in circles or just trolling other players; whatever they are trying to get from the game, playing the game to win is not it. It's these players that hurt the state of the game and really annoy the players that are trying to win.

Granted. As much as I hate the game however, I believe in the World of Warcraft way of doing things. If you can't kill the boss, you won't get the best loot. You don't get the trophy for failure. Sorry, shouldn't work that way. The same applies here. If you can't understand basic mechanics, then you shouldn't be driving in top tiers.

In my last game, to be a special forces player, cool powerful M4 gun.  you had to pass a test.
the third part of the test was actually hard to finish.

Maybe to research a tier 9/10 tank you should have to pass a driver/shooter test.

I don't think people with under a 48% WR should be allowed to operate tier 10 vehicles, but that's all.
my point...100% and im the biggest scrub in this thread caus i chose the clan that match perfectly that definition... :glasses:
SCRUBS UNITED!
