… or is that still a thing in WOT?  I remember it was a big deal a while ago; but I haven't seen much about it on the forums lately.

 

You know the "Zero percent chance to win" … Splash... [Player x drowned] guys

I'm not sure why these people that seem to care so much about stats do this. Didn't they start the battle to improve their stats? I don't use xvm but I check wotlabs and use it as a way to check my performance, the last thing I would want to do is F my tank and lower my % chance to mark the tank. I've seen it happen a few times however.

It was never "a big deal"... and it still isn't.

It was never a big deal, and WG won't do anything because WN8 is a third party metric that WG would be foolish to acknowledge.

Yeah it's still pretty common and about 50% of the time we end up winning.

 

The weird thing lately is I see people killing themselves near the end of the game when we're winning. Definitely not accidental either, saw one guy drive off a cliff 3 times, an SPG drive up to a building and shoot it twice and just last night another one drove out into the water at the back of the map.

No one who actually cares about playing well, which in turn results in maintaining good stats does this. It's only the people who want to blame the game for their failure to improve who do it. "It's the MM's fault I have bad stats" is just another excuse for people who don't want to take responsibility for their own performance.

I think if they do it too much they get a ban.

If they punish people for killing themselves at the start of the match, they might as well go ahead and punish people who do 0 damage, people who consistently do 1-2 shots of damage, suicide-scouts, arty players, and E-25 players because in my eyes, they are all useless. 

 

I don't care about people who kill themselves at the start, because those players are only really hurting their own stats by doing 0 damage. It's literally a casual arcade game, stats keep the game rolling but everyone has always said its 1v29, 3v27 when you're platooning (hopefully). Just focus on your own game and do you're best, regardless how bad your teammates are. 

 

That's why I'm looking forward to ranked, if they suicide in that, then by all means punish them. For quick play, who cares, I've seen worse.

If "cliff diving", or "drowning" are supposedly so bad. Then why hasn't WG at least made it impossible to drown, by changing map borders? Simple fix if it is so "forbidden" by all of you complainers. The only other way to forestall people suiciding, would be by completely eliminating stats in pubby matches, so people can't see what a stink team they were dealt, and just do the best they can with what they have. I personally have never seen the logic of stats in pubby matches. Who cares. Stat obsessors just take the fun out of it. Look at how many years it took for them to take away team damaging (mostly by higher ranked bullies that think everyone's there to better THEIR stats). Well I'm sorry, but improving my stats is just as important to me, and I'm not going to sacrifice my vehicle for somebody elses glory. I pay my hard earned money just like everybody else, and deserve an equal chance in battle. Unfortunately suggestions for game improvement fall on deaf ears at WG

 The punishment is looking like a fool when you drive your top tier tank into the Lake, on Lakeside making comments about how we are doomed. Then see us win a hard game without your help!

One of the main reasons I solopub because I absolutely HATE hearing people whine on discord or teamspeak "Oh we got nothing but reds on our team vs a bunch of purples we lose!". It's not common if you just don't play with people that do it :)

I've actually once used water to help protect against HE and Arty in my defender,

We do hit for players reported for suicide.

 

It's covered in our Physics abuse and requires a replay.

And yet, the "Anonymizer" that they've been touting all year is still not available. Any game that allows third party mods that change game play isn't a legit game, unless everyone is using the same mod. Apparently WG likes misleading their players, must be a Russian thing.
