I have seen people to call me '' seal clubber '' multiple times even though I am an artist and

my average tier player is about 7.

 

I have always thought that '' seal clubber '' means tier 1 to 5 player with very highly skilled crew killing new players while they have almost no chances for fair fight.

Turns out that I am wrong if I trust to community with this matter, does the community use this term just for fun while actually not knowing what it means?

 

I have been even called a '' seal clubber '' in my Kanonenfodder ( one of the worst vehicles in the game, but I truly like it ) while in tier 10 battle.

So what is a seal clubber? Is it anything else but the player farming tier 10 battles in 3 man platoon while in top tier in that said tier 10 tank?

 

( yes I know that it is '' execute '', but I don't care )

 

Explain the term '' seal clubber '' to me or do people just use that term for fun

from the player who has average tier of 7 from 45K games.

Or this could be some kind of jealous issue after all then....

 

Regardless happy weekend!

Seal Clubber can also refer to using a very strong/overpowered/broken tank to either not have to try to be good, or to beat up Idiots.

 

Overbuffed corridor IS-6 comes to mind

A "Seal Clubber" is somebody with high stats which make other players jealous so they apply the "Seal Clubber" label to make themselves feel better.

A "stat padder" is a generic term that sub-50%ers (think: "I play for fun" ) give to 55+%ers to explain in their minds the skill deficit

 

btw my most prized moment is when i was playing the GW Tiger P (for whatever reason) and got called a stat padder. True Story.

As Tsavo said, seal clubber is usually used to describe a player who hangs out in the low tiers with the new players with the aim of padding win rate.  Players in the lower tiers are generally unfamiliar with advanced game mechanics, and it can be easy to prey upon them and their unskilled crews using map knowledge and the vision system.

Seeing '' red '' player in the IS-6 sitting for a couple of minutes in the open and still having over half of his hit points makes you to wonder if the vehicle is okay as is.

Something like this has been the most reasonable explanation for me also.

Jealous issue seems to be the case.

Top notch pubbie thought process there.

My Kanonenfodder tier 10 '' seal clubbing '' insult was almost there with your arty example.

 

 

That just makes you to wonder what is wrong in people some times.

That's the answer.

 

It's based on the classic whiner logic - "Anyone better than me is a cheater, anyone worse than me is a noob".

Yeah, that seems quite fitting explanation indeed.

I guess that we go with that.

I think that we can all agree that baddies are pervasive in every tier. Seal clubbing in a general sense means beating on somebody excessively who does not even have a chance at relatiation. This is commonly seen at lower tiers where the new players aren't skilled at the game enough to even hope at beating a player who has been playing for many years. This is also the same for say tier 10, any number of players who run into a tier 10 battle will without a doubt find someone who almost exclusively play tier 10 (me being one of them). Those pubbies who've simply run up the tiers as fast as they can are now the fodder for those who have experience tier 10 battles for years and are aware of every tier 10s abilities, and drawbacks

seal clubber refers to people who play low tier tanks like the T67 and pummel low tier 3's into the ground with their much higher knowledge of the game (especially camo) and punish people who are new to the game and will have no idea where death is coming from, let alone fully understanding the game (and for real, the T67 is really [edited]uber for its tier)

FWIW, as a baddie, I prefer my original t49 in tier 6 or 7 battles. Battles with tier 3 are boring af

What you gave as the definition is correct. When used out of that context, it just becomes another insult that people hurl at others in a multiplayer games. Would this work, seal-clubbing is a form of stat padding, but stat padding is not a form of seal clubbing? To statistically find out if someone was/is stat padding, would take a knowledge statistics and time.

A lot of scrubs get the whole thing wrong.

Seal clubbing require a good player, and an over powered tank.

E25 is a perfect example of a seal clubbing tank. It doesn't have to be low tier it has to be a stat padding tank that's also good for seal clubbing, and there are plenty of terrible players at the e25 level to seal club. Just look at Gasai's usual ego thread's talking about how good he thinks he is.

That is just how it is my dog friend.

This is what I think:

"Seal Clubber" - Some scrub that loves to specialize in tier 5 or lower. 

"Stat padder" - Any player that loves to play their favorite tanks and consistently does well in it.
