    VPA a notorious Vietnamese clan was caught cheating in clanwars and now in the IM missions they are timing  joining games so they can be on opposite teams and then let the players that needs to finish a mission kill them.
     
    edit: and apparently tanitha a VPA member but also a mod on Asia server was apparently caught selling accounts on facebook and he was let off. Apparently the rule is you can sell accounts just not on the official forum. I can't confirm this but the pbkac guys know the details.
     
    Evidence of warpack usage is also floating around apparently.
     
    So the clan is a bad egg but have taken control of the Asia server when the Vietnamese and SEA server where merged.

    After 450 battles in it my NA reroll achieved all I wanted from the t67. Time to moth ball the little thing.
     

     
    edit: incidentally this little tank is awesome for building up xp to convert for other tanks.

    fair enough.
     
    I am probably saying farewell to WOT for the same reason. My NA account is only up to tier 8 and haven't spent a cent. Although I did have some gold I won while watching some streamers. With the winter event I got awesome crews that are sitting in my bulldog, lttb and currently in my amx 12t but will eventually end up in a 1390. All done without premium account. I do wish I could move flaktrack over but hey we all know just how retarded WG are about moving accounts around. Quite frankly WG are just a bunch of dickheads that hit it lucky. Like Jingles and a few of the other commentators are saying WG won't lose a large part of their player base to Armored Warfare but they are likely to lose a lot of their western paying customers and they deserve it for being such assholes.
     
    I mean a company that lets someone like Serb front it deserves to die.
     
    I have mates that play the Russian servers and know some of the Wg staff. Apparently less than 15% of the Russian player base spend any kind of money on the game. The rest play for free. EU is the biggest money making division but apparently asia is high in the spend per capita. NA is also higher in spend per capita than EU but not total spend.
     
    The thing about armored warfare is that they don't have to do anything new and they don't even have to do it a whole lot better and plenty of westerners will happily leave WOT. Why? not because of bad game play or anything but because of that undercurrent of WG not really giving a shit about its player base. Obsidian just have to pretend to care and we will think it is a breath of fresh air and happily give them money.

    FlakTrack reacted to Beepstar in My Opinion On The Real Scourge of WoT   
    XVM is breaking the game? I appreciate your reasoning and I wouldn't argue for a second that it doesn't alter the way people play. But what you are saying is that information on relative strengths and weaknesses of the opposing team is causing different play styles. Yes it is. And so it should. In fact this ability to read a game is what makes you better players than others. 
     
    Does it makes red players jump off cliffs... not really, or not that much. The people that really don't like XVM are better players. Why? Because they get singled out by arty and other players because they represent the highest danger. And that is just another tactical decision amongst all the other decisions. Should I target tank A over tank B, should I target player A over player B, should I push, hold or retreat. So better players want the anonymity. You want to be a wolf in sheeps clothing so you can dominate more. But in non virtual games you know who you play against, their strengths and weaknesses and play accordingly. The dude has pace, then stand off, the dude has skills, deny the space etc. 
     
    XVM leads to mental defeat for low skill players. Really? I have 3 sons, two of whom play WoT. They are deep red. The deepest red you can imagine. They don't give a shit. They drive tanks with their friends and get killed over and over and over again. Are they enjoying the game? They piss themselves laughing. Do they give a shit if they are going to get steam rolled in 3 minutes... nope, just hop in another tank and play again - a unicum or a pumpkin is still a better player than them so why do they care what colour they are. To them it's a game and they love it. Mentally defeated... I don't think so. I try to teach them the basics but they look at me like "Why so serious old man, it's a game!". XVM may lead to mental defeat in better players but they should have the skills and balls to play through it. 
     
    So XVM really only matters to people for whom their stats matter. If you were playing the game for fun you wouldn't give a shit. But we do give a shit, I give a shit, I care. I wish I didn't but I do. It gives me positive feedback that I am improving at a glacial pace. I am joe average at this game. I look at XVM and figure that information into my calculations and play accordingly. I have never quit, suicided, or played in any other way than to maximise my teams chances of winning. You will probably find most players play that way.
     
    Sure there are idiots in the game, plenty of them, and sure some people do use XVM as some sort of exemption clause. But it's just another clause in a long list, it's not me its mm, rng, xvm, arty, gold, pc etc etc. We all know that if you aren't looking at yourself pretty damn hard you are probably missing the problem. So it's all about attitude, your attitude.
     
    When you start a new game you focus on the things you get right against a background of fail and it gives you a nice positive lift. As you get better you start to focus on the things you do wrong against a background of win and this begins to feedback negativity. I used to play CounterStrike. I got pretty good at it. But by the end I was spending more time raging than laughing because I had begun to focus solely on the negative aspects of my performance because being good mattered way more to me than having fun. It was, clearly time to quit.
     
    So you can blame what you like. The basic truth is that you aren't enjoying it like you used to.

    FlakTrack reacted to MaxL_1023 in Why Pub Matches Are Not Fun   
    You do realize that  it is not mathematically possible for most of a team to deal 2k damage considering the average BT10 team has MAYBE 20k to spread around. You deal 3k, that leaves 14 players with 17k damage. 
     
    If you want to argue player performance you can't resort to arbitrary damage thresholds. 
     
    In WoT something close to the 80/20 rule holds - for each team 3 players will end up doing 80% of the damage. The nature of the game, RNG, tier balancing and other factors do somewhat dilute this to more of a 60/20 split (top 3 does 60%). However, you can expect most of your games to have a few players dominating.  
     
    In every game you posted at least somewhere near half the total damage (on either team) was dealt by the top 3 players. 
     
    This doesn't mean much towards overall skill level, however it does make your evaluation unreliable. What skill does is make you more likely to be found in the top 3 after any given game. 
     
    I also must state that 2K DPG in a tier 10 is well above average. By statistical definition the average player will do about 1/15 of the average team HP - slightly more for tier 10 due to MM but not by a lot, and cancelled by the games won by capture where not every enemy tank is destroyed. This means that somewhere around 1500-1750 DPG is the 49% WR, 1/1 DD/DR line. Your values fit more with the WN8 expected values, closer to the 52-55% range.

    So as of the past couple months the game has become increasingly more stale as time has gone on, with a recent spike for me in the past 2-3 weeks. Modes like the new 8bit shit got very dull after about 2 days for me, even though the credits and new crew were nice they were not interesting enough to keep me logging on to play. Even Skirmishes which I have been continuing to notice over the past 6+ months I have been doing have more and more become the rotation of the same boring maps and same boring tier with the combination of terribly thought out forced team compositions (what the fuck, 2 bulldoges and 3 arti on Fisherman's Bay? What idiot thinks that would be fun?), but a free 10k gold is nice, right.... right? Unfortunately, none of those compare to the level of just plain.... mental retardation, to put it nicely, of pub matches. I won't even get into WGLNA, because we all know how that went before.
     
    For me, the issue with solo pubbing has never been the issue about hurting stats, because in reality, solo pubbing allows for the increase in farmable damage, assuming you're platooning with people who could take it away from you. The fact is that it's just plain not fun, it's not enjoyable, it's painful, it's dry, it's boring, it's a rage-induced heart attack waiting to happen, basically it's anything that relates to not a good time.
     
    Now that leaves platooning, and everything from arti, bad servers/lag issues, and just plain pubbies on both teams even though the list goes on I'd say still make platooning not enjoyable, unless you're solely in it for the social aspect of platooning and not winning portion, but if you're not in for winning go play a different game idiot.
     
    Flat out, Personal Missions are just way too retarded for me to get into.
     
    Personally, the worse part is not that I can't pick my team, because then it wouldn't even be a pub match, the worse is when a person who plays arti is losing the game, and they go to fucking drown themselves, fuck you shitbag. If you're going to play a terrible game mechanic atleast let ME get some enjoyment out of it.
     
    Anyways, trying not to get too offtrack, I FORCED myself to play 5 pub matches today so that I could remember how to aim in a game that's not CS:GO (>implying I knew how to aim in csgo) for my WGLNA match tonight so I won't potato aim. I decided to play solo because it wouldn't be worth my or anyone else's time to play 5 matches worth and then just quit because I didn't want to play, what I got out of those 5 matches made me realize why I didn't play pubs platooned or solo anymore.
     
    Now I would like for you to keep track with me how many people on my teams I got on in the 5 matches I played did above 2k damage in TIER 10 GAMES, a dpg level I would put as sub-par for tier 8s. *I will be including myself in the count*
     
    Game 1:
     



     
    Count Total Game 1: 2/15 *This game started off with the enemy team killing their roomba!*
     
    Game 2:
     



     
    Count Total Game 1-2: 3/30 *This round was only myself*
     
    Game 3:
     



     
    Counter Total Game 1-3: 5/45 *potato game*
     
    Game 4:
     



     
    Count Total Game 1-4: 9/60 *This is the most people above 2k damage in any of the 5 games with 4, and this game included a nonshit platoon*
     
    Game 5:
     



     
    Count Total Game 1-5: 10/75 *The last game, with again, only myself*
     
    So in conclusion 10 out of a total of 75 tanks did above 2k damage in tier 10 games (Congrats!), now if you take me out of it, 5/75 people... wow that means 6.66% (Conspiracy? 2spooky4me) of people could achieve a not potato damage level. 4/5 of those games were losses, should of been 3/5, but my first game in a 2v5 clutch situation I got hit by arti for about 1200, gg.
     
    At the end of the day, if you enjoy this game continue playing, but as it is now, there are way too many people who I know who say how terrible the game is but continue on with it, for me there is currently no point for me to try and pretend it's enjoyable, I'll go have some fun trying to get better at csgo.
