This game has become one for the "Pro" player, especially at higher tiers. The average player simply has such a massive disadvantage that there is little that he can do. This is exasperated when you account for the one way, two tier spread. Take my Rudy, for example. When using it, I am in a tier 8 battle over 75% of the time. And me being an average (now below average, just saw my WN8 and it dropped yet again) player, going up against players with stats 4 or 5 times mine in tier 8 tanks in my tier 6 Rudy, its the equivalent of shooting a BB gun at a battleship. I truly hope, that someday, the one way, two tier spread ends. I also hope that this game will finally be based on player skill. However, these two things will probably never happen, and support for this game will keep dwindling because of it.

Two tier spreads keeps people from seal clubbing in their Rudy. (Not a seal clubbing tank I know, for the point of the post)

 

You think the game is unbalanced now? If they take away two-tier spreads, It'll be worse. You can't always have top tier, that would make the LT class quite overpowered in my opinion. I understand that frustration, I only play scouts, I know how it feels to get into a tier 9 game with my 59-16 3 times in a row and not do anything because of abs positioning in my part, bad plays on my part, and that fact that I can't pen squat other than enemy LT and arty. It isn't for "just pros" I'm not a pro by any stretch of the word and I still highly enjoy the game, even those battles where I did nothing except ram a T95 for 6 damage... 

 

Support for the game will not keep dwindling because WG doesn't [edited]what you want them to add, they don't care if one or two players quit over their MM, it happens all day every day, they are used to it. However, if 30,000 players quit because of their MM, that's when they'll take notice and change something.

What happens when you meet a Rudy with, as you say, "4 or 5 times your stats"? :popcorn:

     No it isn't...you are responsible for your own play. The only problem with MM is tier and class imbalance ie. 8 vs 2 heavies and etc. The new MM should fix that but it is not the fix you are looking for.

 

     I am a below average player who is improving, glacially, and this game is for everyone.

Yeah what would all the purples do then?  Their would be no-one to spot for them while the spam gold and snipe back with the TD's in their light tanks, medium tanks, heck even saw a purple in a Type 4 hvy top tier sniping in the back with the TD's.

These are typical responses from typical WOT players. No thought, no comprehension, just utter nonsense.

So, me meeting a tier 4 tank and it's player with WN8 about 150? Is that what you are saying? You are utterly clueless.

I am done posting on this forum. All I get are responses like "git gud", or "you suck", or "quit whining". No thought, no reasonable consideration, just responses from 12 year olds.

After 23k games you should know by now not to rush down a lane where you have to expect heavies the most. In your Rudy you pick on tanks your own size and do not start a fight with a Defender. Leave that to the heavies and TDs on your team.

If you are the last one standing against a tier VIII heavy, then I guess your tier VIII teammates didn't do their job. All you can do is play your Rudy to its strength, speed, flank and use of vision range to turn the dime.

I am far from a pro, and I can always play at V or lower if I am tired of getting slaughtered by the elite.  It CAN be frustrating sometimes to be bottom tier and be unable to pen anything, but that situation is rare.  If things get really bad I suggest playing TDs. It is very rare to have a TD which cannot pen, even from bottom tier.

You are complaining because you don't want to play against people who are better than you? Bro if you want to win every time you should get better.

Sounds like someone needs to take a break from the game: I highly recommend role-playing as an autistic anime girl and obsessing over the color purple for an extended period of time
