I believe it's due to the fact that almost ALL of us truly love tanks, We all want to be tank heroes and kill everything we see on the battlefield, yet the game simply won't LET us. Skill and such are irrelevant when love is involved. NOBODY is rational in love after all.

I mean, who here doesn't LOVE driving around shooting in a TANK?!?!?

The rage and anger comes from the way the game mechanics hamstring you so often & badly. We all want to hit every shot and make them feel the pain while bouncing everything in return with our amazing steel armor.

Now I'm not excusing rage rants, just saying I understand them better and better the longer the game stays unbalanced and unfair to one side or the other. RNG is truly one savage beyotch, but when it smiles on you, the victim of your blessing is bound to get salty. Lol

Sure we all suffer the same from RNG, but we don't all suffer at the same TIME.

Try to keep this simple idea in mind and maybe rethink all the snarky toxic crap comments next time some poor players comes here to vent his rage at the unfairness of it all.

It's hard to think clearly when you're in love after all.

Just my 2cents

If this game used the same mechanics but they were Masey Ferguson Combines instead of Panzers I would be fine.

I see it as, too many have eros love for WoT. When they should have ludus.

 

WoT is not the type for a long deep love relationship. Instead WoT is a free sprite, to have fun with as long as it lasts lol

wow 809 battles and clearly a reroll. This is almost Wargaming PR nonsense. Heck WG did get in trouble and has leaked documents stating the practice of community managers creating false accounts to troll the forums.

 

Either way that is just utter trite.

 

People get frustrated when the stated AND LISTED in game mechanics and statistics are in fact no where near close as described or explained.

 

People get frustrated with the BUILT-IN progression limiter that stifles everyones progress based on time played, money spent and individual battle performance in order to manipulate MM, at least, in order to create a sense of under performance and progression stagnation attempting to coerce the player to open the wallet in order to progress at the "normal" rate.

 

Along with the knowledge that WG does not act in good faith with countless examples and leaked documentation over its checkered past makes people get a little ticked to say the least.

 

but hey, without context and historical knowledge and experience sure, you could say the used car sales men can be trusted.... i wouldnt.

Sure do.  The cannons shoot plant matter and dust at the reds until their windshields are so dirty and their air intakes so clogged that they can't move anymore.

Because wargaming had a really  good game , then they started listening to the whiners. you cant tell me the waffle would over powering in the game nowadays. they keep nurfing good tanks  and keep bringing out more premiums, when the old premiums should be brought up to the specs of the game as it is now. pretty bad when a short barreled elc can pen almost every tank and a scorp g  hitting an elec doesn't  kill everyone in that tiny thing. yes I understand its a game and not real. but seriously wargaming just wants everyone money. and I sure don't play as much as I used to because of their greed. ok all you can [edited]at my post now.

The whiners ruined the game, for me anyways.

The rage comes from players who make far to much of a mere arcade game. 

Somehow, since they think it is some sort of job that REQUIRES study and practice. That ALL who play SHALL take a mere arcade game seriously.

 

Somehow this group is under the impression that all who play SHALL play for 1 reason alone, stats and winning. Any person who does not comply is ranted at.

Somehow, this person who spends real money on an arcade game, then actually studies and practices. Worships WN8's and crawls after advice from streamers, is under the impression that they are entitled to get so angry because someone did not meet their playing expectations.

 

It is a bizarre suspension of reality that causes it. Not realizing that 75% of players could care less about stats, let alone winning or losing. It is just immaterial entertainment. 

This mixture of serious players, with 75% who do not care, drives them nutz, and the anger flows.

 

I no longer even look at the after game summary, destroyed before the end of the battle. I am in the garage and another game, and rarely bother to see if it was a win or not.

Why, because it is not important. Playing is important, winning is not.

 

Now, the let the anger flow....

People get frustrated when the stated AND LISTED in game mechanics and statistics are in fact no where near close as described or explained.  The mechanics in WoT are very good, and well thought out and executed. Nothing wrong with the gun and armor stats either.  A player does need to have a full and complete UNDERSTANDING of them, though.

 

People get frustrated with the BUILT-IN progression limiter...  What the heck are you even talking about ??

A lot of loose accusations in the above reply... where are the links to some proof.  It's very easy to blithely accuse.

I think it's mostly due to lack of maturity. I can't even fathom getting upset about a video game.

You were so close when you said, "The rage and anger comes from the way the game mechanics hamstring you so often & badly." The truth is that it's the other players, not the game mechanics, that hamstring you. What you've completely overlooked is that this game is pure PvP and no one is going to let you win for free. So many players think they're better than they are, because they've played a lot of PvE games, or because they've played PvP games that don't track their stats, and so many players don't understand how much work it takes to get better than other people.

 

It's easy to get better at a game when it's specifically programmed to make you feel good about your progress, like most PvE games are, most people just have no idea how hard it is to actually get good at a game that is played entirely by other people who also want to win.
