Howdy Tankers,

 

Let me start off by saying that I am only writing this thread out of sheer confusion and curiosity.  I do not have any feelings toward this player one way or the other and I am not trying to out them or do anything negatively towards him/her in any way.  I just want to understand what I'm looking at here.

 

I was in a Tier 5 1v1 tournament and came across this particular player.  I generally take a quick glance at their Tier 5s on Wargaming's page to determine what they might bring.  When I looked up this tanker, this is what I saw:

 

 

So he's a new player with 94 battles, but what's with the 1,800 damage per game?  Let's look at his tanks:

 

 

What?  No Tier 5 tanks?  No TECH TREE tanks either?  And a 260???

 

He also has a KV-220-2 that I can personally vouch for that is not listed.  I'm just confused by this and would like an explanation as to why this is all you see when you look this particular player up.


What am I missing here?

 

Thanks for your time and attention.

Someone played before and worked up to the Object 260 and owned other Premiums, and then Reset/Wiped their account which keeps all of their Premium/Reward tanks, Gold, and Premium Days. Wiping the account takes away Credits, Equipment, Crews, etc. So he's just a bad re-roll kinda.

Reset account or a hacked account wiped after control was given back to the owner, which means only premiums will stay normally

don't know how or why anyone would wipe their account..... seems like a shot in the wrist watch if you ask me...  and how would you wipe an account anyways? 

 

I get how people can get tier 10 tanks without playing lower tiers.  using strongholds and FL.  but campaign tanks... no idea.

I believe personal mission progress is reset when you wipe your account, including rewards you already had.

Thanks folks.  I didn't know you could "wipe" an account, or what would happen if you actually wiped it.  Good to know for future reference.

 

:honoring:

Thanks for posting Cynical, but if that's the case, then I hope this thread doesn't endanger this person's Obj 260.  Someone msg'd me to look this player up on one of the stat sites and I just did.  They went through ALL of the tank lines and had/have many Tier Xs.  The 94 battles is just in the last 90 days.  I learn a little more about this game each day.

 

Thanks again everyone for your input.  Confusion has been cleared up!

 

:great:

I really appreciate players like you. We need more people who keep their cool and don't start throwing a fit over little things. :honoring:

Not all are cheaters. Some players will work up and get 279(e) and Chieftains, then reset their account and use those tanks for good stats and stuff. Some will Reset their accounts with Reward Tanks, use them in Strongholds to get the Crew up, and then do Clan Wars. That will keep their account at 0 PR and no stats what so ever.

Sounds like such a bizzare thing to do
