XVM brings out the truth of the imbalance of WG's mm.. It was stated before that all new premiums are just there to feed the higher Tiers.. That italian tank is going to be another thin skinned disappointment because the people that make those * is it worth it * videos are way better than the average player and make any tank look good.. Good luck out there.. Hope you do well..

No the real problem is a tier 2 player buying a tier 8 premium.

 

While I DO agree Boxhawk, in general, especially where win rate is concerned.

 

However, tier level doesn't apply to the ability to hit a target. Even a player in battle well above their skill level should still be able to hit targets, with reasonable regularity, when they fire. This player cannot even hit targets, with any regularity, even in the lower tiers. If one cannot hit targets, one will not have any chance of damaging them, and if one cannot hit targets and damage them, then one stands even less chance of destroying enemy targets.

 

So even in the lower tiers this player, sadly, under performs in the ability to even hit targets.

So , good players makes bad tanks look good , but MM is imbalanced, and all premiums are there to feed higher tiers.....  OK there Bubba......

You say it's rigged for a predetermined outcome? That's some damn fine coding to be able to rig a game to end in a draw. No wonder WG has a patent on the algorithm.

Yeah the game isn't rigged. It's just frustrating with 25% RNG (way too high, some RNG is good, 25%? Nah), artillery and the trend towards making Tier 10s stupid proof with armor, alpha and HE.

 

The game goes from really punishing at the low tiers to the mess that is tier 8+ with armor and HE. You pretty much need to spam a large amount of gold rounds to get by and be competitive... but WG is nerfing that because the average potato Russian has decided the armor isn't enough, they don't like gold rounds penning them. Need to remove that!

It's no different than a carnival or circus yet you go to them and try to win that teddy bear?  Yeah, I thought so.  Is it rigged?  Yes it is most certainly rigged but not like you think.

Proved yourself wrong there, didn’t you?  You are proof positive that a moron believes in rigging.

My wife always says that after a bad call in a football game.  But more often than not it doesn't and the bad call costs us the game.

I understand the logic, flip a coin and you have a 50/50 chance of heads or tails, flip enough times and it will even out to 50% of the time it'll be heads, the other tails.  But dice is a whole different set of odds.  And this game has so many variables dependent on randomly generated odds, that it doesn't always even out.

 

Calls in sports are not random. 

 

The law of large numbers states you are wrong, no matter how many random variables. 

 

You are basically stating that since multiple random variables are to complicated for you to understand, it cannot even out.

However you are still very new to the game

 

_Tsavo on the other hand is a great player.

But he's been working at it for many years.

 

Winrate: 57.48%
Battles: 39,616
Rating: 8,285
WN8: 2,203

 

So you have about 35,000 battles to catch up statistically.

Do you think you can do it alloyA?

I do. _Tsavo's not a magician.

 

p.s. Gawd, I think I met _Tsavo back when he had maybe 12,000 battles.

We've been doing this too long brother.

 

I do really appreciate your post. Yeah, just joined last December, so I DO need a lot more experience. Guess I'll stay at the lower Tiers and gain that experience. Thank you. I will put away my T34 and Progetto. But I do luv playing my Rudy. :)

On behalf of all the other crappy players in this game, I want to apologize for OP's ludicrous post.  I am a horribad, I can admit this, and do work to become better.  I just lack patience to NOT charge around the corner to finish off the one shot enemy tank, then discover he is with 3 other friends all at full health. I suck, I try not to, but there it is.  Own your suckage OP.  Stop being a whiney-[edited]beyotch.

Ok...it's not rigged. Guess I'm just a s**t player. 15 battles today, won one. Almost every game, the green team was wiped out while only killing 2-5 of their tanks. In my Progetto (new Italian tank), went up against a 704, he was at 400 hp and I had my full 1400, he one shot me. Guess I'm a really crappy player, eh?

 

No, just a very inexperienced one mate.......you don't even have 200 battles above tier 5 under your belt, you need to learn the game a little more....

Best thing you can do is take responsibility for your play.  No matter what the MUG leaders say, it’s not the game- it’s the player that affects your win rate and results.

I was just using that as an analogy to the 'it all evens out in the end' argument.  At times it simply doesn't.

Skill and the team you're on may mitigate an RNG that 'has it out for you', but if you're on a bad team, even if you're the WOT equivalent of Nolan Ryan or Brady, odds are you're gonna lose.

Hence why your 'battle' is heavily influenced by the simple 'roll of the die'.

Its random and that means in the end there is absolutely some poor schmuck that it doesn't even out for in the end.

you are just doing it wrong.

 

you are looking at it as a glass half full perspective.

 

change to a cup half empty approach.

 

when you expect to lose every game then every win becomes a celebration to remember!
