What the heck has happened to this game?  The game play was decent before the merger.  The player composition of the teams was generally ok.  Since the merger the matches have gone to absolute trash.  Half of the players in a tier 10 are tomatoes.  It was never like this before.  The Grand battles have brought out the players who forget to turn on their monitors when they play.  There is nothing even remotely close to a balanced team.  It is either a roll of enemy or vice versa.  I wonder why it is like this.  I have heard numerous stat padding unicums say they were switching to west server to pad stats.  I am saying in the forums what is being said in general chat and in matches.  WG may delete this thread or punish me with warnings/bans but it does not change the fact that they have once again taken a huge step toward ruining WoT.  Who am i to get in their way of pushing the decent players out???

 

DO NOT LET TOMATO PLAYERS OUT OF TIER 3!!!! If you cant play, don't run matches that are too big for you

I'd say they are about the same...because they are...but that isn't a choice.

We are back to the old MM where battles are stacked again, like they used to be.  I guess WG figured they could do away with the so called new MM as it was really putting a strain on their computational powers.

The recent addition of personal reserves means that players can bot to higher tiers in less than half the time. Result: More bad players playing in higher tiers compared to a few years ago. These players usually are in a race to get to tier 10 and don't care if they actually learn the basics at lower tiers first.

Look, the teams have always sucked.  My recent WR and WN8 have plummeted and it's my own fault - the teams are still just as terrible.

I have also noticed some really erratic gameplay at higher tiers. Why would the west server base be worse? Perhaps it is ping related? My ping is much higher than before now, a close to unplayable 350ms and it makes me often seem like I do stupid things like miss shots, drive too far over a ridge and expose my hull...but in reality its because the controls sometimes stop responding.

Your stats since the merger are better than they were before the merger, so clearly the merger has been good for you. You must be quite the altruist, complaining about things that benefit you.

 There have always been good and bad teams, and considering it's happening  because of an influx of players from another server is just discriminatory and makes no sense at all.

 Time to correct your obvious error.  The win rate has obviously been trashed since the merger.  See the little red number on the seven day column?  As for the change in average damage, just like everyone else i am running more 10s than usual.  I dont know about you but when i play a tier 10 tank i tend to do more damage than a tier 1.  Kind of makes sense, riiiiiiiight???  As for your use of the word altruist, that one you just might need to go see gold old Mr. Webster.

DISCRIMINATORY????? Did you really just toss discriminatory at me????   Listen bro, this isn't the 5th grade and i am not standing in front of the PC judge.  So let me guess.  When i tell the waitress that i dont want tomatoes on my sandwich I am discriminating against vegetables?????  Please, for the love of God, toss your lame use of the liberal agenda out before attempting to interact with me.  I treat that just like when somebody wants to yell at me.... IGNORE.

Yes, it's either discriminatory or stupid, you can pick. And  you have every right to tell the waitress that you don't want tomatoes on your sandwich, but bringing that comparison just reinforces the idea that you think TOMATOES came with the merging. The Pc Judge gave his verdict assisted by a psychologist: Discrimination!

The statement was intended to be simple so that EVERYone could understand it.  I can plainly see that i didn't simplify it adequately.  When high stat players in large numbers go to the west server to pad stats it paints the picture that the competition was significantly lower.  Every server has its reputation and the west NA was no different.  Also, this is not a "one man's opinion" but a fairly widespread position held by many.  So you can point the finger at me for being "discriminatory" or open your ears to the masses of former east players making the same statement.

So I was right and your post was about West server players being considered inferior. The "masses" that support your point of view sometimes make similar post related to SA players needing  a separate server, and the reason you don't see any of those posts around is because they get banned in less than 24 hrs. I think yours was cleverly conceived, though. But now you know the Pc Judge verdict ;).

OOOOOOOOOH... so now you show your cards.  you have the idea that i am referring to SA players.  That is interesting since there are and have been many in my clan.  Once again, you are wrong.  At least you are consistent.  I also like how you attempt to link my statement to something unrelated.  Remove the title of judge and replace it with clown.  Your opinions carry no weight after your clear attempt at morphing my statement into something that it is not.  Thanks for the entertainment but your time is up... be gone troll   /ign

Your comprehension reading is as limited as your education. But it's my fault for expecting a positive conversation from a person who makes such ignorant polls.
