I have been playing WoT on and off for 3 years. I just wanted to start here with a topic of discussion based on terrible players. As you will see after I post this, my forum signature will probably have a lot of you saying, " he is the problem with this game." I am not the problem. It is the players with terrible internet connections and terrible PC and the mindset of "it's just a game." I play to win. I refuse to sit in front of my PC for hours of game play for losses because of the thousands of people who play this game on crap PC and internet connection and don't have the ability to tie there own shoes. I would like to know how the WoT Community feels about the player base and what ideas can be presented to possibly fix this issue.

I built my computer with gaming in mind so you won't have to worry about me with my AMD FX-8350, 16GB RAM, and a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Toxic.

Bad PC isnt a legit reason for sucking. Plenty of purples have utter garbage hardware.

 

The one thing I do not understand is why people insist on playing with 400+ ping where they cant even keep their gun pointed at a guy facehugging them. That's just utter stupidity. If you are lagging that bad dont [edited]play an online game.

That's an idea.  Putting new players in tier 8 tanks with bad crews and no equipment and not much of any idea what to do in game is not always awesome.

 

I do not think that the issue is hardware.  A mediocre PC doesn't force you to sit on the rear redline and hide with your top tier tank. Some players learn faster and become better quicker, some of us progress more slowly, and some just do not have any idea of how to get better because they don't realize that getting off one shot and then dying in every game is not a good performance.

I play on an 8 year old PC, running Vista with 3GB's of RAM, using a $#*& processor, and suffering from constant in-game micro-freezes.  I can't imagine playing this game on a good computer, it would definitely make it easy mode!

 

The player-base is what it is, some people are good at games and some people bad.  Just the way it is, same goes for real life.

 

What people need to do is focus on themselves, instead of worrying about other people.  Relax, you'll live longer!

I can deal with the bad players (for the most part) Yes I have had runs where I take 7-15 losses in a row no matter what tank you play... That is frustrating!

What kills me is that your personal win/loss % is directly linked to these players. You do your part and then some but because 12 other pin heads on your team who you wonder if they are even capable of using Velcro shoes fold faster then a lawn chair. Some how that loss is your fault... Really???

Seems more like you padded your WR with junior tank companies.

The "free game" is no longer worth the price.

Maybe if enough of the "I'm a good player, the rest of you suck" players ask WG to start a new game section they might listen.  Say a Monthly subscription?  $50.00 U.S. to play?  That way only dedicated, I'm better than the rest can battle it out together.

 

WG just might go for it.

I'll keep repeating this... Please change the servers to NA & SA instead of east and west. There are some very good South American players out there, but the vast majority show horrid stats. Attempting to play the game on NA based servers from the other side of the globe just won't work.

1/3 of total games played, now that's a lot of Company Battles!  Much more than my meager 137.  I should have planned ahead, i'd be unicum overall WR by now if I did!   :teethhappy:

I agree that must be horrible.  I have some friends that play on NA server and they are across the world and have some terrible times.

Playing with not very good players is part of any multiplayer game. Sorry but there is no special treatment for that.

This comes up frequently, particularly in the game with some players chatting "noob", "scrub", or, my personal favorite, "uninstall!" at other players.

 

I'm reminded of this story:
American Guest: "I notice you have a chess set."

Russian Host (excitedly): "Yes! Do you play? What is your rating?"
American Guest: "My what?"

Russian Host (dejectedly): "Never mind."

 

I'd support some method for a voluntary grouping of players according to their rankings. It would help keep the players with less skills from PO'ing the higher skill players as well as letting them avoid getting mauled by a platoon of purples.

AND ensure the ADVANCED players are banned from dropping to the lower level to seal club when they get bored.

So if every player was as skilled as the OP, wouldn't it still be possible to play for hours and only lose?
