    Give arty separate HE mechanics from tanks. Arty can no longer pen and in general deal reduced damage, especially against armored targets - but the damage they do deal is more reliable and their reloads are quicker (at least for larger caliber guns - I don't want permatrack FV304s). Additionally I'd add sixth sense for arty shots within a very close distance of your vehicle & make counter-battery a more attractive option. Make crew skill levels mean much less. Right now running with a 50% crew is hell, especially for new players. Make it so 50% is more like the current 75%, and 75% is more like the current 90%. 100% crews perform exactly the same. Make camouflage skill mean less. Make base camo skill mean more. Boost crew train rate to ~2x the current value. Rebalance HP and alpha values for T1-4 vehicles. They die too quickly and deal far too much damage. The new player experience sucks because you make one wrong turn and a Cunningham a tier below you instantly clips you out. Take a lesson from WoWS and slowly introduce concepts. No equipment, crew skills, consumables, etc. to deal with in T1-2. Slowly ramp it up until everything is normal at T5. "Advanced" tutorial after the basic one, which introduces concepts like vision, weakspots, cover, ammo, and the different types of cannons (autocannons/mgs, autoloaders, normal cannons).

    Oh man, you got me good. Hi, my name is Tinpotgeneraltoo. I'll just cut all the nasty things I said and that his platoonmates said (for the most part) and then shame the guy who actually did the least shit talking because reasons.

    Time for me to name and shame some salty players, so without further ado, lets begin! And yes, this is all low tier stuff, as my clan mate is grinding the Marder 38T for the Flack-Bus, so I was giving him a hand. Also, the standard Pvt Miros response was used in all instances.
     
    Here is a slightly salty T-D-U player by the name of Nimzo:

    Seems a bit upset that my Ke-Ho could outmaneuver and outgun his Valentine II, even with him shooting 100% APCR:
    Click Here To See My Meh Game
    But to be fair, he does have a good win rate, plus he has killed 10 players in a game, so a decent player, lets check out his Pool's medal!

    Hmm? No Pool's medal you say?

    Please don't say he is a massive seal clubber with LOADS of games in blatantly OP or ex-OP tanks?

    What ever did I expect?
    Next on the list is this fine Gentleman Re-Roller _VITREX_:
    http://wotlabs.net/sig_dark/eu/_VITREX_/signature.pngHe was a bit upset that he was bottom tier in a Pz S35 when he met my Ke-Ho:

    Guess his stronk tank collection wasn't good enough:


    Oh, and guess what? We met him again 5 games later, and I killed him again. The rage was real:

    Every clam loses battles.  Even peak G only won ~90% over a large sample.  More like ~66% fighting another top 3 clam.  For example the forge war was a steady parade of 4 wins, 2 losses per night, followed by them relanding to rinse/repeat.  But over time, their will broke because we just kept coming, and won more than not.  Again, peak A team performance is less important than steady activity, including multiples teams playing at a high level with good politics/leadership.
     
    And I also didn't say blues are superior to purples.  I said blues were skilled enough, and that active, team focused, clam wars focused players were better than inactive, solopub oriented, stat padders. There are obviously some active, team oriented purples...and those are the most prized recruits for everyone.  On the second tier, I think an active, team blue > stat padding purple anyday, and any recruiter would agree with me.  TBH, its bizarre to me that bulba recruits players just so they can let them go inactive but make their clam average wn8 look better.  Seriously -- stat padding clan averages.  That's all you need to know about that kind of autism.
     
    As far as how G is doing, I honestly don't know.  As I said I almost never actually play these days due to time zones.  I know most of our elite callers quit, and our new ones just might need some practice in tough fights.  Or they honestly might not be that good.  The same can be said for the recruits.  I have no idea.  Nor is any of that a bad thing, or unusual.  Every clam, every team goes through it every season or two.  And G is still cruising to great overall win rates, good gold payouts, free tanks, top ~5 reputation/performance, reasonable activity...and what else are you looking for?  But don't act like a loss to decent teams is somehow the end of the world.  You could do a lot worse than a proven championship level organization in rebuilding mode. That's why smart money joins the 42-40 lakers instead of the 52-30 rockets.
     
    My position is clear -- I think the stats fetishism of this site and its disciples is degenerate, sucks the fun out of the game, and they are a joke.  But that's not just bulba, not by a long shot.  They are socially retarded pillow humping teenagers, which makes them natural victims for my bully, but again, that's not just them.  I give zero shits about CRD -- I've yet to see a single worthwhile poast from there, and they are wrong almost all the time (including the death of G -- seriously kids, literally nothing changed for 18 months, you were just so out of the loop you never noticed).  Bulba is full of teenage stat padders.  Egos are large, numbers are inflated...they are likely to get ADHD and wander off, they are likely to quit when school starts, they rage, etc, etc, etc.  That's not a recipe for a stable clam.  There is a reason why a large chunk of them jumped ship from another top clan in the last 6 months.  Do you think that will suddenly change if bulba has a bad stretch?  They are the very definition of fair weather signature warriors just looking for a paycheck and validation.  And even if by some chance they are, then what -- they pad for a few months then the server gets cut off?  Other than 2d sexytimes, what does any clam offer than G doesn't?
     
    In any event, look -- I don't care what you do.  I'm not a recruiter, nor am I G's PR team.  I don't care if you join G, respect G, or whatever else.  Anyone who knows me know I regularly platoon outside of the clam -- its not even an issue.  I didn't resent our bench warmers for forming bulba to get more playtime, I didn't resent the fair weathers for jumping ship, and I wouldn't resent any applicant who just decided he would rather be in clam X instead of G.  Do what gets you enjoyment out of this internet tank game.
     
    This is seriously not that big of a deal.
     
    P.S.  Also I might have been unclear before.  I think the otter war proved bulba clearly has the best A team at their peak right now.  They also seem to have good politics with the other 2d clans (chaii, etc, a stronk alliance).  I also think most would agree they lack depth (roster has a LOT of inactives and padders), lack stamina (teenage ADHD, inability to take a loss, interested in other games, etc).  That makes for a great elite strike force to come in and break through a tough choke, demoralize the enemy, and so on...but they would lose a war 1v1 even to most 2nd or 3rd tier clams just for lack of ability to field two teams sustainably.  And if their politics gives out, or chai gets tired of holding off the obnoxious chip spam...bulba is in very real danger of pulling a robb stark -- win the battles, lose the war.  Not that anyone would care particularly.  Again, we are all here for the gold and the free tanks.  Who cares about the epeen?  It proves next to nothing.  Bulba can boast about winning most battles against top clams and padding their E50s, the rest of the server will likely laugh, then we will all synch our M60s together and mass drown.

    50Bs are rare an some callers really love them. (I did.) If we were on maps where I used lots of 50Bs many nights in a row, I could actually run FOXEY out of them. (Foxey, for whatever reason, doesn't have many 50Bs).
     
     
    That is an opportunity. Find a tank that it somewhat rare but beloved and get it.
     
    Heavies:
     
    Common: E-100, IS-7, E5
    Situational but used heavily: T-57, 50B
    Fucking Unicorn (like you NEVER get to play it): The British thing. IS-4.

    Russians (all are the same really...140 probably better) 
    Batchat.
     
    STB-I/Leo are useful on some maps... with the right player. Tjerry would often rack up 3-4K damage for me on Cliffs in his STB-I but if I sent other players there... I would get 500 damage and a dead tank.
     
    All other mediums can go die in a fire. (OTTER has a caller that likes 50M. I've had VILIN use them against me on Himmesdorf. That makes 2 people ever)
     
    TDs:
    Foch 155 used to be God Emperor. Its pretty trash now.
    268 used to be king. Now the 263's DPM and trolly armor is more popular.
    The E4 gets used for big alpha and nice turret, but its needs to be sheltered and is pretty common. I've never asked for an E4 and not had 20 people ready them up.
    E3 is the rare unicorn. They are awesome and no one EVER has them (mainly cause the grind is aweful)
    WTF-100: Not all that great. To vulnerable to arty in organized play. Some maps use them, but there is always someone that has them.
