Pfffffft, only 6? Try me m8. How about 12. I cry in my sleep just thinking about it.

 

I hit my personal record around 20.  At that point I started drinking to forget about losing and thus don't remember how many more losses ensued.

 

OP, six is nothing.  Especially during a x5 event.  How do you not know that?

I had 33% wr with 40 battles this weekend. But eventually managed to even it up to 50%. Lose streaks happen. But be carefull not to go in the tilt, this means to keep dying for your own mistakes once and again. Sometimes we dont realize we are tilting, but when you do..There's a lot of movies and series to watch.

My advice. Stop with TDs. The core of the game is heavies and medium tanks. Use them. Learn them and then you will learn the game

You do realize that RDDT has many different clans right. . . Most of them that I see are blu7e and underperform.

 

And you have no right to complain about someone not carrying you.

Step 1 - Get into a clan

Step 2 - Have them teach you how to cheat to get a T-22

The rest will fall into place...

You don't need a clan to teach you how.  Any sea slug level of intelligence can figure that out.  You just need the ethics of a televangelist and a clan to provide more like minded thieves.

Good god man how is that WN8 even possible?!

Are you playing with a ping of 999?

Nerve damage. By the time I figured out all the mechanics of the game I was hospitalised for two months and lost about two thirds of the function in my left side, hence the "I know I'm a bad player."

Six in a row, frequently. More than two in a row with unicums? That was a first. Do I expect them to carry me? No, but when I push I don't expect them to be camping on top of a hill being useless.

I had gotten in the habit of playing aggressive with the T28 when the tanks I was facing had no chance to pen. I still play the T95 the same way when the opportunity presents itself. The six games I played in it last night, it was a mix, but each time either the unicums did the "don't go that way" and got flanked or just camped when we were doing the assault thing. I just got out of tomato stage and I knew enough to watch the map, but there wasn't much I could do in that monster.

So why play it? Because there's nothing more satisfying than chewing up people who don't know how to pen it.

Yea but the issue is you dont seem to chew them up. You cant play a tank like the T95 then whine when you dont get carried.

Wait... Message this morning from the unicum on the hill:

 

"wth? wow...dude, you need to chill and learn to read the map...and YOU should've been on the hill...I had to turn around from my plan of spotting middle cuz we had NOTHING on the hill to use the spots...also, be careful who you rage at - your stats don't necessarily give you much credibility"

REALLY?!?!? Sod off on stats if you don't know how little you can do from the hill in back :P

You stat padding elitists don't get what I said. I'm not expecting a carry. I'm expecting less tomato behaviour from a unicum.

And still missing the point. It's not the number of losses. It's not being carried. It's doing things dumber than me in a T95.

I think the unicum had an excellent point. Sounds like you were on Prok or Malinovka. If tanks don't take the hill there is very little point in risking your tank for shots that no one is there to take (and being the first to get spotted by the enemy tanks that DO take the hill). If their team had more mediums that would be another reason for him to go elsewhere.

 

Sounds like you have a very static notion of how each map should be played. The situation on each is dynamic. Good players read the tank comp of each team, watch the initial deployment, and make decisions based on how the game evolves, not based on some preconceived notion of where the meta says they should be.

 

There is camping in the back and then there is camping in the back. It's wrong if you do it out of habit as your default mode, but sometimes the situation merits it depending on how the game plays out.

No idea why im asking but...upload the replay. There are 2 sides to every story and im guessing that the side you are telling is wrong. You call me a stat padding elitist and yet I never once mentioned stats. It tells me what I need to know however.

 

Just thought I would also point out the bolded part also.

this is why bad players b1tch about x5 weekends.

 

cause all of a sudden there are more lower ability players, and less unicums, so what happens is that they are less likely to get carried.  shudder.

 

yeah, on x5 weekends you have to handle your own sh1t and not rely on top players to carry you.  so, yeah, crap players lose more on x5 weekends... not as many top players to carry their sad asses, makes sense.

 

meanwhile, top players feast on the motards and get more wins on x5 weekends.  read up on Darwin.

 

 

So when I see purps and teals get rolled on an enemy team, and they rage in chat about their team, and complain about X5 weekends . . . 

 

That means that their rage is legit? Implying that unless you are 2K overall and above, your complaints are baseless?

 

That my digital warrior is not Darwinism, that is elitism.

A couple of days ago this happened:

 

I was playing my M40/43.

Saw a T95 kemping bush on the front line (Seigford line)

-Fired once. Splash for 45 dmg.

-Fired second time...amorack.

I laughed so hard, and the most awesome thing was it was the first battle in it with the Howitzer M1

Edit: Forgot to mention...he totally raged in chat :)

 

please buff arty's sense of humor.

No...the point is that there are a lot of players who wish they only had 6 losses in a row, despite the how and why.

No offence, but based on your stats, you make a lot of mistakes when playing this game.  Just because someone is teal or purple, that does not mean they do not make mistakes as well.  Expecting them to play perfectly at all times is not realistic.  Being butthurt because they did not play as you think they should have is asinine.  I would bet that there are more players that do not like how you play your tank at times than there are that disagree with how teal or purple players play their tank.

But six losses in a row? 1/2 unicums (hello RDDT!! Looking at you) on the team? The amount of pointless camping by unicums?

How DID you get those stats?

 

slow tanks that can't flex or even go to the next lane over are useless imho unless your holding say 8 line on Himmelsdorf. Speed = win.

You are almost sub 45% win rate meaning you have 0 authoritay when it comes to advising people on how to win games lel. 

 

You wouldnt be accepted into the lowest of the reddit subclans. 

 

To put it in perspective I believe the avg wr of bots that just locks and shoots from base is around 42-44%. Which means you are slightly more useful than a bot. And that still makes you an active detriment to have.
