I've found not logging in surprisingly effective.

Definitely. I don't anticipate being permanently cleansed of wot. i still look at the specials and stuff, but just haven't even been tempted yet. Also haven't had much of a chance to waste time of late.

Now if only paint allowed you to correct the broken sig while retaining the gif part. Rebuilding the lot just for the 8k is well beyond the meh threshold.

Indeed.

(At the risk of sounding like an average official forum poster...)

I have long accepted that playing wot means you have to take the wins and the losses (& draws), even if some losing streaks are harder to take that others.  I have no doubt that often players will get dealt what seems like a harsh run and rage-quit - with some "threatening" to quit permanently on the forums.  I have occasionally felt that way also, but I'm grown-up enough to realise that decisions made in the heat of the moment may not stand the test of time.  So let's be crystal clear: this decision is cold and calculated.

Wot is a game; my understanding of a game is that a game is intended to be enjoyable.  Sure, there it can include elements of challenge - but it must still be enjoyable.  Well fucked if I enjoy wot anymore. 

Sick of playing 10's when in an 8.  

In tier 8 you should see the following:

  1. All 8's
  2. 5/10 - as top tier
  3. 5/10 - as bottom tier
  4. 3/5/7 - as top tier
  5. 3/5/7 - as middle tier
  6. 3/5/7 - as bottom tier

I realise that the Asia region has limited players, especially when I am able to play, but I feel like I see #6 ~80% of the time, and #2 & #4 %5 of the time.  I tracked the data for a while ages ago - although it wasn't quite that bad but it was definitely slanted towards seeing 10's.  Data aside, I'd argue that perception is just as important, because a perception is all people need to make decisions - they don't always wait or care for the evidence.  Once you have the perception of being continually fucked over it affects the enjoyment.  Enjoyment doesn't base itself on facts. 

So then you get to the logical point of queuing up in a 10 instead of an 8, because why disadvantage yourself.

Naturally all this makes grinding credits... sup-optimal.

It also makes you wonder why you have any 8's at all.

Sure, you can play 6's - say hello to tier 8's (how these fuckers got top tier in an 8 I have no idea).

And of course there's the quality of play at tier 10 (and other tiers).  My last ever 113 game (as it turned out to be) was a case in point: Ruinberg, full tier 10 game; BC25t camping behind a TD in the far corner overlooking field.  Sure, I've played lightly armoured meds at tier 10, I know you can't frontline - but neither can you be too passive.  The guy did fuck all damage - **surprise**.  But it's not a one off - shit like that happens every. fucking. game.

I struggle to recall a game in recent times that felt balanced, most are one-sided so that (a) you get quickly get fucked up or (b) you struggle to deal any damage.  Oh and when you do get that chance **surprise** RNG springs a "magic moment" on you.

Aggro.

I've been calling out pricks on my team / raging for a while - not all the time, sometimes I'm philosophical and move on.  Who needs that shit?  I don't rage at my family, or my colleagues...  I can't even really blame Feet any more...  prick.   And as much as these fuckwits might deserve it, I could do without being continually put in a position where raging appears to be a perfectly justified reaction.

Cortes

So fuck it.  I can manage my own expectations, I can take the good with the bad, but I'm not WG's bitch, and I'm not going to take this monotonous up-the-arse un-fun any more.  

Wot occupies a large part of me, that will create a hole that needs to be filled (not my arse, oh wait...).  getting around that will take a bit of grieving - I have no doubt: I wanted to play this game forever.   So after sleeping on it (more than once) I'm going full Cortez: scuttling the ships, burning the bridges, scorched earth.  Each new day will be a day not being shat on by SPG's, MM and RNG.

Oh BTW, I haven't given the official forum users (or anyone on NA for that matter) any heads-up like I did here.  I have put a big notice on the website - but you only see that if you go there, right?  

Feel free to leverage this information in whatever way you see fit...  I would tell them (maybe) but - ooops! - no login.

Ladies and Gentlemen - I present Angel___Kiss.

A player so awesome that he has played 800 games in the P.43ter an average damage of...2.   Totally not a bot though, otherwise WG's bot detection software would have detected him.

And lets have a look at some other tanks - the P.43 bis.  653 battles with an average damage of also 2.

The KV-1.  To be fair, he is way better in this tank, averaging 4 damage a game.

This man is a legend. I have had the good fortune of encountering him on my team a few times before - I think he plays intentionally badly and fucks up in tier 10 superheavies to maximise his impact on the game. I messaged him a few times and he basically confirmed my worst suspicions. He literally aims sideways every time he shoots so his shots don't hit, p r o t e c c s arty, and is the cap circle's staunchest defender.

At least Metonic got banned in Dec 2016 - I also encountered him in a few games.

He’s a purple compared to Angel____Kiss though.

If ever anyone needed a data point for what going effectively AFK in a tier 10 heavy looks like...

Aww, nobody's paid him yet https://bitref.com/19vGYNQyE2fqAqZHmhGRyWiQt1oMpUY1x4

 

I stopped playing WoT ages ago and switched over to War Thunder. While I still get a bit ragey at idiot teammates occasionally, nowhere near the level I did in WoT.

I'm more astounded that Adrian has been masturbating in front of video cameras. Unless he's in the porn industry, then it makes sense. Probably not too much an issue if he is in porn, the free exposure could do his career wonders in fact.

The most sensitive part of a blokes' body when masturbating - his ears.

RUN are known to bot their accounts then play them to not get as XVM sniping and also so they don't have to grind tanks and creds for tourneys. 

 

This has been a thing forever. Still salty how they ruined an ANZ tourney by participating when the cable was sharked, mainly because they are HK based. 

 

Also they are pretty shitty.

But surely no bot plays as bad as RUN did in his/her/its Type 4...

Did WG forget to add the bots back on the ANZ server after 1.2? Cause the numbers have taken a dramatic dive.

Hopey's theory on bots in battles had little behind it, but quite a few have noted the logged in numbers element.
