I expected this kind of answer: low-status players have to stay in low-tier battles.
Look man, I have premium tier 8 tanks in my garage, so nothing stops me to play them, so nothing stops me, or others who bought tier 8 premiums, to be in high tier 8-10 battles. A golden rule in sports is that: to become a better player, you must play with better players than you!
I never once said "low-status players HAVE to stay at low tiers". What im trying to tell you is its not good for you to play against people who constantly stomp you before you have a chance to do anything because there isnt much to learn from this. Its easier to learn the game mechanics around tier 5 where more of the player base is closer to your skill level and you are capable of competing with them.
You do want to play WITH players better than you, that will help you learn. Playing AGAINST players who are a lot better than you however will be detrimental to both your and your teams experience. This is coming from someone who once was a poor player too. I left the game for a year and a half because of frustration with not doing well at the higher tiers. I wasnt able to enjoy the game again until i figured out that the issue was me.
You're right, nothing stops you from buying a tier 8 prem or losing battles all the way to tier 8-10, but you arent helping yourself get better at the game. If you dont care to get better and just enjoy shooting tanks thats fine. I support players being able to enjoy the game as they see fit. However i still feel its a good move on WG to try to encourage players to learn the game at tier 5-6. Giving them a free tier 8 would not help them.
