  1. Then allow me to be as clear as I can be. I don't support or endorse actions like that. I've never attempted to rig an event with my clan, and I never would. Nor would I support others doing it. King did so, I had no idea. We all share a teamspeak, a community identity, and sometimes we platoon and work together on the CW map. By no means does that imply I've got my hands in this event.

  2. I think in regards to the whole stats attacking thing – Day9 from Starcraft once said that stats should be viewed more as a measure of self-improvement and not as a measure of skill. In the SC2 universe, this is a concept that’s pretty much generally accepted to be true, and I think this is very applicable to WoT. Sure, the 2200 WN7 player is better than the 1500 WN7 player, but when the #s are kind of close, it really does not say much. This is because we’re all playing the game our own way – it’s not like we’re taking the same SAT exam. Some people may find TCs fun, and people may platoo

  3. I, and many, many others firmly believe that Efficiency has overstayed its welcome. Being a flawed system as it is, and the existence of the WN rating which is superior in every way, the Efficiency rating is now being removed from the signature images. Starting right now, this is what the new signature image looks like, original sig suggestion by weesh: WN7 has taken the slot previously occupied by the Efficiency rating, and the bottom slot has been filled with colored bars showing the types of tank you play the most (Navy selected because his bars go completely behind all the lab

  4. Lol a 58%er calling 56%er baddie, this is golden. You're probably one of the biggest moron I've seen on this game so that says something. Back then being a sub 55% scrub, you acted like the shit and used your PBKAC tag, a clan that you did absolute shit for, as backing to lecture pubs on win rate. The one time I platooned with you, you talked so much shit about stats with no provocation that I thought I got RO'ed the next day, when WoT chat was messed up, for just being in your platoon. Who do you think you are? Trash talk own clan member who contributed to CW and cause him to leave when you d

  8. Gotta agree with crab 100% here. (shocking I know) KA, discussed EXACTLY this problem in previous contests. WGNA did NOTHING to fix it. He said, "here is the blueprint for 'cheating'*, here is how you do it. Please fix". They did nothing. In the absence of a gatekeeper to stop someone from doing something lame... the best approach is to DO THAT LAME THING AND PUBLICLY GET AS MANY PEOPLE TO DO IT UNTIL IT IS FIXED! So yeah... A big whatever. I'm much more upset about how WGNA treated jacg than I am about KA's count in and rig. Dumb contests deserve to be broken.

So hello, and I'll add that I really appreciate having this site as a resource. Having a place that helps people improve their play makes the games more enjoyable for everybody (nobody likes being alone on a team of red, even mediocre players like me), and while I'm pretty aware of my current problems (too impulsive, not focused enough on staying alive when there's an easy kill in front of me), I'm sure I'll

  15. As Solono said, this did clearly break the rules of the event. There it is, in a highlighted section of the post: "Please note that any attempt to artificially inflate your score (entirely determined at the discretion of Wargaming staff) is grounds for disqualification from the event. Is the rule a bit vague? Could it have been written better? Absolutely. However, the rule is clear enough for this particular instance. Convincing friends to let you run up a high score (especially those on the other team) is "artificial inflation". It's unfortunate that people attempting to game

  17. is it cheating? i dont see where it says you cant do that. griefing is a stretch. even if you accept griefing, its 24 hours at best, not a month. you cant punish based on what makes sense, you have to do it by the rules. think about it. he posted several times about how this was going to happen.he posted how it wasnt against the rules to do exactly that. he then said that all competitions will likely be won that way. the rules never changed at all. so he didnt really break any of the rules.(griefing is possible, but if a competition winner called a player a noob at the beginning of a m

  20. Dude, don't smear PBKACS name by implying we've done anything remotely like this. Asking people to go up-vote your entry in a competition is hardly blatant cheating like you did. in fact it's not cheating at all. You can claim to be doing it for a good reason all you want, but at its core you still cheated, and you still made my clan look bad(see Ziddy's post). You need to stop being a fool. The WOT forums are one thing, but don't bring that bullshit here.

Between the leadership role in the Big Rig and the creative-contest vote-stacking, you're really going to say that? Really? Agreed. Been saying this for a year and a half. I will confirm this. At no point did Ziddy instruct me to cheat.

  24. Reading must not be your strong point. Where is my defense of him? That entire post expresses my despise for you, and your usual idiotic view of yourself, i.e. talking down about someone's stats when you're not that great yourself. The fact that you're granted "Purple Poaster" is a disgrace to this forum. If you spent more time learning and less time writing essays about your stats to people that will not read them, you might be less bad. You're an idiot; I'm calling you out for being an idiot. It's about setting vendetta public, as you put it. From the looks of the rep of that post, I'm not a

  25. From a post i made on the EU forum : Some top progamering tips to achieve the dizzy heights of a 39% win ratio: 1. Form an orderly queue on one flank. When addressing the opposition do it one after the other. Professional Progamerers are very polite folk and one should take the initiative to meet on a one by one basis. 2. Call for help when outnumbered. Once aid arrives run away leaving your hero alone. He wants all the glory so it would be rude to deny him. 3. Capping is best performed in encounter, preferably on a map where it is fully exposed. As it takes so long to cap in this mode you

    Madiba i've had little contact with - but from what i have seen i suspect he fits within the mod mold. Mods are a bit like arty for the forums. No one that matters likes them. They wield their power from a relatively untouchable position. If you are going to take them down you have to be quite stealthy. They typically possess little skill and are very random in what they hit. You can do the same thing and one battle you won't even get looked at, the next you'll cop some minimal damage, and the next you'll get one shot. The bad ones are red on XVM. They are the only ones who feel their role

  30. Dissidence's Guide to Competence in Tanking For Baddies (<49%) I realize I've never really put in the effort to write out a whole guide before, so this one will be my first (and lengthy) one. I'm putting this together because on the WOT forums and here in two days, I've seen a number of players with bad stats ask about improving...which is awesome. There are a lot of amazing guides out there for how to play specific tanks, and a lot of time has been spent on guides for making the jump from a good player to a great one (something I'm still working on, I might add). But I intend this full

  32. And here's the problem. Legal terms in relation to what? This isn't a court. We're talking about a video game, put out by a publisher with the faintest grasp on creating a decent set of rules that you can have. "Standard legal terms" don't even exist, as there's a separate standard for every state in the US, and that's just the US, I'm sure what passes for "standard legal terms" in your mind is a far cry from what they are in fucking Minsk. So whatever you try to pass as "standard legal terms" is really just you trying to make your point more salient. If he's guilty of breaking a rule, i

  34. Was it right for him to do that? No Were the rules for the contest worth a damn to prevent rigging? No Was this pointed out to WG at any time? Yes, by the person who did the rigging If he hasn't broken any rules I don't support a ban, if they're going to start banning people for being a dick there's going to be a lot of bans flying around and a much lower server population. I still don't think he should have rigged it but this is something that was pointed out to WG multiple times and they failed to address it. They are equally at fault here and had plenty of opportunities to change th

  35. Well I've been called a bad before, and I take it on the chin and work hard at improving. I like to base myself on objective facts, and if you asked me, stat attacking on flimsy evidence is better than wild flaming without, as most of the forums do. Speaking of "common goal, interests, and theme", it's really nice to see him try to sell PBKAC out first opportunity he gets (see below) Seriously, bro?

It's pixel web tank prizes, can people really not keep their hand out of the cookie jar for shit that doesn't even matter? You can't really have it both ways, either the prize isn't worth being upset over/rigging the comp to get or it is. People are pissed because they thought they had a chance at winning. Forget for a second that they actually didn't due to lack of skill. Rigging it makes them feel like

  42. Personally, I prefer a Gun Laying Drive in place of Vents for guns over 2.3s aimtime. It'll allow you to get more accurate shots on targets that are lit briefly while moving between cover or those that only expose themselves for short periods of time to peekaboo. Regarding crew skills, they look fine to me except for the fact that you're putting too much emphasis on view range. While it's important, I wouldn't take it over repair. Here's what I would do: First skill Commander: Repair Gunner: Snap Shot Driver: Offroad Driving/Clutch Braking (Smooth Ride isn't as important since you don'

    Exactly. It gets stupid if you start to try and penalize every single OP tank in the game. If people wanna play only OP tanks and maximize their WN, let them. If thy have 1900 WN or 2200, it won`t make the slightest difference in affecting how I react to them when I face them in a match. However, I AM interested in bashing the WN o people who play tier 1-3 tanks and noob-bash.
