I have noticed in the majority of match summaries there is constantly 4 - 5 players on a losing team that fire their weapon once or twice a match.  Sometimes they aren't firing their weapons at all.  Is there a way you could let us know what percentage of players average 1 or 2 shots a match?  I am guessing this percentage might be as high as 25%.  Can't this lack of participation be monitored and banned.  Why would you permit players that aren't even following the basic concepts?

I actually remap mine to the right button.

Every now and then I see someone who fired something like 20 shots and hit nothing.  Aiming is hard, it seems, for some folks.

Could be risky.  I was in Prokhorovka(?) and got one shotted in my E25 before I ever got a shot off.  I lasted maybe a minute.  I wouldn't take a ban for that easily.

I agree, getting one or two shots off before being one shot or permatracked in a bad position isn't unheard of.  Issuing a ban for such things seems a bit much.

No, some players never get a chance to fire off a round while others may only be able to get off 1 or 2 shots.

Of course, but are you averaging no shots a game?

I have had many matches where I have not fired a shot on the winning side and the losing side. We aren't all super men like yourself.

It's called random battles for a reason (not to mention it's a free game).  Folks who aren't good at the game and really only average 1 or 2 shots a game have just as much of a right to be here as the blues/purples.  Concentrate on your own performance.

 

Plus, as mentioned, there are lots of legitimate reasons why one won't get a chance to fire much.  For example, you're trying to take a valuable position in the beginning of the game but it doesn't work out because you get overrun by the enemy team trying to do the same thing (I see unicum streamers die this way all the time), or you're in a slow tank and your team overruns the enemy and you literally don't get a chance to fire a single shot.

Okay, I'm bringing my post back on course from those who have attempted to steer it toward "I remember one time when I shot only once."  I requested information concerning percentage of players AVERAGING 1 - 2 shots per battle every battle.  Also, I suggested tracking the average number of times the weapon is fired.  Let me add, make this information available on personal stats.  So, everyone can see that you only fire your t67's weapon once a match on average.

2 shots that result in damage is better than 20 shots that hit nothing....

No, both are bad unless you are firing a 130+ mm.

matches have been weird lately been seeing people fire off their guns more often at the start of a match and more lemming trains than usual. I wonder why this is?

I'm curious, what makes you think you are entitled to statistics from other players at all? You aren't paying for their account, you aren't providing their internet or computer hardware. What the heck makes you think you are entitled to anything from them?
