    When they act surprised upper tier lights aren't active spotting it just underscores how little they actually understand about their game.

    The shot distribution is utter garbage now. It still allows what should be borderline impossible dead center shots maybe a quarter of the time and then flings shells all over the place otherwise. WG has tweaked it to maximum ADHD-friendly Call of Duty status where wild clicking shots are viable yet fully aimed shots are still unreliable. I'm reasonably confident they did one final sigma adjustment without making it known, they realized players can't easily detect that kind of change and didn't want to deal with the flak.

    Hello! As has been brought to my attention, the verification system is apparently faulty, meaning new users have been unable to participate in discussions in the forum for quite a while. I have done a complete validation of the system and I could find no fault. As far as I can tell, it's working as normal. However, as this appears to be causing issues, I have enabled access and posting rights to users in the default "Registered Users" category. Several functions, like rating posts, are still restricted to verified tankers. Cheers! Never Edit: I figured out why this issue happened, and we can thank IPS (the makers of the forum software) for it. Months ago, they introduced a "quick registration" feature and made it the default without asking. This quick registration screen ommits custom fields, including the mandatory "Server" field which the verification system needs in order to know which region to authenticate your account. As new users couldn't select this field, they could not verify. Fuck, fuck fuckity fuck. I have now enabled the full registration screen. Verification should be working normally again. This new access to unverified users will remain, unless we run into trouble. USERS WHO REGISTERED RECENTLY CAN NOW EDIT THEIR PROFILE AND SELECT THE APPROPRIATE SERVER, THEN PROCEED TO VERIFY AS NORMAL.

    WG talk about active spotting: 80% of the maps are corridor.

    I miss the "We won't put Mauschen in the game because its shit against tier 10s and too fucking OP against tier 7s and 8s" WG.

    More like Wotlabs is not as active anymore. How ever the reason is that nearly all the line is straight garbage.

    Am I the only one that likes 3/5/7?

    Dude I really don't wanna be mean, but I need to insist on this. What do you consider a good game? Because I'm completely sure that my standards are not the same as yours. To put an example, I managed to 3 mark the Patriot 72 games only playing it during the 2 rentals I had it, first, when it came out, during old mm, and finished the mark a couple of months ago when I had it for 20 games rental or so. When I played it during old mm, I had almost 3k DPG during the first 50 games, which 3 of them had 0 dmg games due to disconnections, when the 1st rental ended mark was around 81% with 2900 dpg. When I had the chance to play it again. I lost 400 dpg... In 15 games or so. After all that long time, I wouldn't say I play worse than I used to play, it's just I can't feel I'm doing ANYTHING to prevent a loss unless I'm top tier. And believe me I don't have any issue dealing with tier 10s with tier 8s, but I don't wanna have to be forced into that, which means using premium rounds 8/10 games. Back then I could keep +2.5k session with premium tanks and farm credits and have fun while doing it. Marked Mutz during rental, having to deal with old E5 back then. And I wouldn't get mad for having to deal with it. You could base your gameplan based on the line ups. More meds? Push X side, more TD's? Try to spot for them to get the assistance. Bottom tier games were as common as mid/top tier games, at least in my opinion. But now? It gets even more frustrating that this game already is. And besides powercreep, which is another factor, but much smaller. I can't find any answer but new MM, you have mirror-ish role lineups which are utter trash due to WG poor class balancing and your are bottom tier most of the time playing tier 8 and below, add powercreep to that and you have the perfect storm. You know what's one of the few things to know win conditions right now? XVM, yup the most cancerous mod in this game is the best thing you could use to know what's your better chance to win. Stick to the players who are better, it doesn't matter if your tank doesn't fit the role, you won't do shit if your X top tier sucks. bluenicum 430U/268V4/IS-7/Maus/S. Conquer/5A and some other tier 10s are instawin I'd say 80 to 90% of the time with 3/5/7, because right now if your top tier can't influence the game enough, you have minimal chance to win a game. No matter how good you are.

    Tier 8 misery can be broken down into a few problems, for which 3 5 7 is only partially to blame. 1: powergap, i.e. tier 8s too shit, 'OP' tier 10s (OP in quotation marks because OP is the new balance). also powergap between tier 8 and 9 is hyuuge. tier 8 meds in general being shit, tier 10s having no frontal weakspots against tier 8s, etc 2: MM prioritising 3 5 7 means tier 8s have a natural tendency to be bottom tier more often than not 3: tier 8 being popular, exacerbating #2. also because grinding creds at tier 8 is mandatory to offset tier 10 HEATfests 4: corridor maps means that although there are 7 other tier 8 shits on the other team, chances are you are going to meet their 430U/5A/268V4 long before you dig out their Progettoes 5: conversely, tier 10s have too much sway. 3 5 7 is basically designed to let reds steamroll tier 8s and feel good about it. however when your reds are too red you feel bad and lose the game for no fault of your own. 6: no subclasses within 3 5 7 means you get 430U versus Leo 1 and 268 4 vs 268, except the fact you get 3 top tiers magnifies the OP/shitness of your top tiers 7: too much consistency means you feel like you are always bottom tier (even if statistically there are 5 % of times when you are truly top tier with lower tiers to bully). I joke to the few friends I have who still play WoT that tier 8 is basically tier 9 now. As a result you probably have to look at all of these problems individually before you can even start fixing it. Given that WG has the IQ of a donkey in PVS, I doubt they will be able to pull it off before the game dies.

    I don't wanna be mean while saying this, you have this idea probably because you are not good enough to understand everything going on in one game. In theory yes, you should be able to deal with half of their team and then harass the top tiers. But this rarely happens. Why? Because when being bottom tier most players will play defensively and wait for the top tiers to start the tactic moves. In the end the ones who have the power to decide what's gonna happen in a certain battle are top tiers. 3/5/7 is bad because 3 tanks and maybe some of second 5 are the ones who will decide the pace of the game. It doesn't matter if I know what needs to be done being 2 tier behind, if my top tiers don't decide to help me. Old mm didn't had this issue, because: 1) You'll rarely have those games with 13 tier10 1t9 1t8. And even if you were the tier 8 you can play around much better knowing that there are 13 tanks capable of having some influence. 2) You'll get top tier in a fairly consistent rate no matter which tier were you playing. I remember having fun marking tier 8s during grinds because you wouldn't feel useless in 19/20 games?. The only issue back then was arty... not like that has changed to much. If you want proof about how much new mm has fucked up low tiers, you could just check DPG whores right now. I remember back then. Top DPGs in basically every tier 10 was around 4500-4600. With certain exceptions.(Old IS-7, BC, old 155, etc). And it's not like the players became even better than they use to be, right now farming dmg in high tiers couldn't be easier due to the new mm. The problem is, most of the players would enjoy playing through lines between tiers 5-8 because it feels there's something to be done in the game. Only unicum tryhards like me care about getting marks and stuff like that. I never enjoyed grinds, but I'll never hate it more than right now, mostly for 3/5/7 mm.
