  1. Hi Guys, I was just reading through the info about ranked season 2 and it seems to me as an average player that the changes to rewards is just going to discourage the average players from getting involved at all. As a 51% WR player in randoms i found that in ranked season 1 it was hard work to consistently gain ranks as it was a case of one step forward one step back. Now with season 2 they are making it even harder to gain ranks and rewarding the people who do gain ranks ie the high level players with even more bonds which in turn will widen the gap even further between those players and the average players as they will be using a lot more improved equipment. Is it just me who thinks this will just piss off the wider audience? In my opinion they should set different leagues based on the skill level of players using maybe PR, or WN8 or something similar? so at least the players will come up against players who will be comparable in skill level? I will be interested to see if you guys feel the same way? Regards. Paul
  2. Hi Guys, I have noticed over the last week or so my WR has been really struggling, it was hovering around 54% for a while but recently i have dropped in the last 30 days to barely over 50% I seem to have been ending up in really bad teams in a high percentage of games and as a result have been losing a lot more than normal. Is it just bad luck or is this happening to others too? Kind regards, Solar
  3. Well there you go, i know that i actively avoid engaging the best players early in a game and always assumed that others would be of the same opinion
  4. Lol you say about XVM focus but the truth is more people will avoid engaging a blue / purple player as they don't want their game cut short
  5. My issue is they shouldn't be giving out improved equipment as rewards (in the form of excessive bonds) which gives the already better players an unfair additional advantage... how is that fair? But then i would expect someone who is one of the people benefiting from this to defend it. If you want to be seen to be better than others more power to you but why should you have a distinct advantage? rather than just getting something that's cosmetic to flex with? You think its fair to have faster reload, better view range, better camouflage than average people? if you do then your just a fucking moron to be honest and my point is lost on you
  6. Trouble is you cant add a game mode for a game only aimed at the top 3% of players, there is very little end game content in this game as it is so to alienate 95+% of your players from a gqame mode is rediculous.. especially when the best players already have tournaments and WGL to amuse them.
  7. I understand what you mean but why should already superior players get improved equipment which just makes them even better? give them gold skins or unique camos for their tanks, not better equipment?? How can average players hope to have a chance when the already better players have hardware advantages as well as skill advantage?
  8. Fair enough, if you have enough people you can platoon with i guess who are decent players
  9. Have been grinding through the chinese LTs and am on the tier 9 now so most of the games i have been playing lately are tier 8 and 9 But thats been the case for some time tbh Also tbh i am often one of the higher damage etc in the team so i dont think its me dragging down my win rate, i just seem to have been getting absolutely shocking teams lately, commonly having 4-5 tomatoes on my team while the opposing team has 1 and a load of blue players.. they really need to implement some sort of team levelling metric in the MM in my opinion. Something that takes the 30 players selected for the match and distributes base on their recent WN8 or something similar surely wouldn't be that hard to implement? The trouble with that is you end up then with 70% bottom tier games
  10. yeah its a bit odd, i have been playing and if i get ahead on wr quitting when the going is good whereas in the past i would have carried on playing as was confident i could keep the average up.. Its forcing me to be more cautious which i suppose if a good thing for my long term play as i do tend to be on the aggressive side
  11. Hi guys, because i am still quite new (13k battles) i only have 2 tier 10 tanks which i don't play a lot of to be honest as most of my time is still spent grinding through the tech trees i am progressing. Although i have often questioned the point of playing tier 10 games at all as it seems to have been setup so that all it does is cost you money / credits. For an average player whose experience of Tier 10 battles in limited to probably less than 200 battles what is the point of playing tier 10 when you A) cant make any credits (unless your one of the better players maybe?) B) there's no progression after tier 10 to speak of? Why would you spend extended periods of time playing this tier outside of clan wars etc? I am interested to hear what you have to say about this. Kind regards, Paul
  12. my trouble is that my preferred tank class is light tanks and i think that in the current meta at tier 10 they are massively gimped. The two tier 10s i have currently are e100 which i find really frustrating due to how slow it is, and the tvp 50/51 which i find really frustrating due to the lack of armour and that i seem to be spotted from miles away in it. Do you think LTs are worth playing at tier 10?
  13. I disagree, with 1k recent you are just cannon fodder in tier 10 games
  14. I have thoroughly enjoyed the chinese LT line and upto the tier 8 have flown through the line, the Tier 9 is not so easy to do well in however once you get it fully upgraded its not bad I am currently sitting at average of 1300+ dpg and WN8 of about 1900+ and im still recovering from the stock grind so that should go up before i hit the tier 10 Aced it last night with an epic carry 5 kills, 4.6k damage and 3k spotting so yeah its fully capable of good games
  15. Hello mate, its nice to see you are keen to improve as often when you see "tomatoes" in game they are either oblivious to how bad they are or they think your an elitist for trying to point out how they can improve
  16. Hiya guys, I am currently playing the 59-16 which i am really enjoying and working toward 2nd mark on currently, i have already unlocked and bought the WZ 131 but haven't played it yet. I just wondered what you guys think of it post 9.19, is it as good as the 59-16 or not so good now? Please base your comments on post 9.19 as they have obviously changed a lot since then. Thanks, Paul
  17. Hiya guys, I have in recent weeks / months moved from being a 1500+ recent player to over the last 1000 games being 2100+ and i am curious of how much of a step up there is from my current average to being a 3k+ player Is it minor tweaks to get those improvements or is it big jumps up still? Thanks in advance. Regards, Paul
  18. Whats so bad about the Tier 9?
  19. Weird, the quotes on this forum seem a bit fucked up! Anyway what i was trying to say was is the Tier 9 stat padding you mentioned good with the WZ LT line? as im a little bit in love with those currently!
  20. Well without justifying your comment that just sounds like a your bragging tbh
  21. whats this about? i dont get what your talking about? whats happening from july 14-24???
  22. I am a bit jealous as i have played 110 battles with an average WN8 of 3100 so far on this tank and i still haven't got an ace tanker in it. However congrats mate nicely played I am absolutely loving this tank and have unlocked the tier 8 already haven't used it yet though
  23. Hi Guys, I often play alone in randoms and generally find the matchmaking is ok and relatively fair, although they should implement some sort of skill based metric to even up the skill of teams. HOWEVER - Everytime i platoon up with my friend who is of a similar level to me (1600+ recent) the matchmaking just gives us shit game after shit game.. i'm talking never top tier and 90% of games bottom tier Is this just us who are cursed or is it happening to all platoons? Regards, Solar
  24. Yeah its just bizarre to be honest, surely they don't know its happening?
  25. Ok so not just me then, are WG aware of this issue?
