Just try the IDGAF approach. On these days, run the T-67 and go on a Silverback harvest.

Indeed. Or for real fun, hop in your Hetzer and every other game is an Ace Tanker.

If I play from 4 pm to midnight EST, the battles are all crazy like they let a bunch of people out of the lunatic asylums to play WOT. Weird things happen in battles that defy explanations. No pattern or logical play in most battles. Players driving off or being pushed off the bridge on Erlenberg, team killers, allies ramming your tank and blocking your reverse, lemming trains to the max, rush bots and the list goes on. It's like letting a bunch of hamsters loose in a cage and watching them all scurrying around looking for random bits of food except these hamsters have guns and are shooting at everything and anything. If I play after midnight or before 4 pm, the matches are kind of "normal". Well..as normal as random battles can be I guess but at least not as crazy as during the 4pm to midnight time slot. I guess you will have to play strongholds or something to avoid those players?

I went 4-4 this morning before work, so...  slightly above my average.  I'm just lucky I guess.  But then again I am in California and I play on the East Server (for now) and just have to deal with the extra 50-75ms lag.

Op, yet another very viable option, and yet another example of cause and effect. 

The cause, x5 weekends.

The effect, frustrated players running near OP tanks that make life a living hell for filthy casuals and dank poop flinging monkeys that infest the servers. Your move WG.

Who really cares more player base will mean better MM hopefully so you can not get stomped in your tier 8s by tier 10s. Also i am coming back to play as well to try and grind another tank like over the weekend and see how much exp i can grasp.

I like the 5x days, good chance to train up some crews.  So with that said....OOGA BOOGA.  See you in the jungle.

OP, if you don't want to take advantage of the 5x events, then don't.  Simply do something else and wait for them to finish.  I enjoy a 5x event, as its helpful for those tanks I need to grind and helps the never ending task of improving tank crew skills.  Not to mention that these events are a great way to draw attention to whatever event or celebration Wargaming wants to point to.  Its their party and they can and should do as they please, IMO.

 

If you don't enjoy that such events bring a greater volume of players to the queue, find other ways to occupy your time.  You've evidently a great build up of saltiness dwelling within you, judging by your critical comment;  perhaps this is an opportune time for you to take a break, unwind, and let go of that build up.

Working as intended,why do you think wg does the x5? To try and bring back players or get give them an incentive to play if they were on break.

The logic is profit potential.  Unfortunately, the quality of game play will almost always take 2nd seat to a higher profit margin ... the latest motivation being to grab the Foch 155 before it goes bye bye.  So, the 5x is almost a certain financial windfall when the inpatient, free xp their way up the french ladder.
