Why? It’s a replay View PostJakeTheMystic, on Apr 25 2019 - 23:57, said:

reported for name and shame

 

First off he’s a new player, he literaly did nothing wrong,  apart from buying a tier 8 tank ( ok an American teir 8 premium) and who because he’s new had no clue as to what he is doing he got his [edited]haded to him over and over again I’m that tank. literaly he just sat there doing almost nothing while I kept shooting him in the face over and over and over again.

 

This is a major part of the problem I see again and again. New players buying high teir tanks, I suspect on a combination of pure hype from wargaming and/or thinking a high pricetag means that it is obviously better than lower price tanks, and then boom they end up getting there asses handed to them. 

 

Frankly given that that seems to be a major source of funding for them it’s kind of suprising the game has lasted this long.

Its been a common problem for a while and its present in every game. You cant just limit people's game experience simply because they are new, unless you make it a tier requirement before they can play in a ranked mode, that I can understand. 

 

If they want to throw money into the game and skip the grind, let them. They will never learn, they might not do well in pubs, but who cares, its pubs. Let them be. 

 

You still posted a replay shaming a target player, which constitutes as name and shame (according to some mods on the forum at least). You might as well remove the replay or risk getting a strike. 

 

I was in the hall patrol for elementary, dont underestimate my ability to be a tattle-tale.

Couple of things. For one, WG doesn't care who buys the tanks...just that they are buying them. So when a new player first comes in to the game they will be introduced to premium tanks. Take into account the swath of social media people who showcase these things. The message over all? They can be awesome if they buy this tank. Which brings up the second point, whether someone is minty fresh or a veteran to the game, they have a right to spend their money however they please. Finally, regardless of your intentions, you did name and shame. You may not have thought it or said it out loud but you did put the basis that the poor guy should not be allowed to purchase a tier 8 premium tank. Not like this is new though...seems like this is one of those threads that pop up every now and then.../shrug

People like you are so amusing so why don't we break it down...…

 

1. You have a 47% win rate

2. You average 279 damage per game

3. You own 57 premium tanks, 14 of which are Tier VIII


 

Pot please meet kettle...… I think a much better title for your thread would have been "This one post sums up EVERYTHING wrong with WoT"..... what do you think?

I believe posting replays and talking about anyone or the entire team is not considered name and shame, unless they changed that rule.

When i started i jumped right in with a tier 8 premie not because of anything WG did, or any hype.  it was simply my friends were that much ahead of me and i wanted a tank i could use to play with then while i made my way up the line.  I dont know though why you are suprised because if that was the case WT would have died out too because they do the same thing.  every game with a similar format does it so really it is unrealistic to think that a single game is going to say Nah, i dont want your money.  even his buying a tank he wanted is doing nothing wrong, just because you do not agree with it doesnt make it wrong.  (might not be the smartest move but still not wrong)

 

If i were to do it over i probaby wouldnt have been in such a hurry to get up those higher tiers and i may have a better wr, but it is what it is

OP is playing arty. I don't care about his gaming experience. Also, he isn't any better that player he is using as an example.

Well, it's like watching the two dumbest kids on the street having a fist fight. You know you shouldn't watch, but it's hilarious.
