    Valk you've already stirred the hornets nest; are you sure you want to continue with shoving a stick up it and start vigorously shaking it? I can assure you nothing good is going to come out of it for anyone.

    If you want to be taken more seriously about it and maybe have something done try being a little bit more mature about it rather than spam "FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU I LOOK BAD NOW JERK WADS!" Nobody in their right mind would respect that and want to listen to someone lashing out in such a retarded manor.
     
     
    Also insulting the only people who could maybe change the colours doesn't help your case either

    If this is the case then you shouldn't be worried about stats at all. You shouldn't be complaining about the little changes in color that occurred to your sig.
     
    In fact you should be thankful Never is doing this, fuck.

    tomhwk reacted to Moonrider in Color Scale Updated   
    I've spent a lot of time and effort overcoming my early noobishness, essential tremor and age slowed reactions to get out of a color bracket that is regarded as BAD. Now that I'm on the verge of moving up to a bracket that's regarded as "OK,"  the goalposts get moved and I'm back to BAD. My improvements represent a lot of fucking hard work for me and the shift feels like that hard work was belittled and treated as unimportant. Yeah I know I'm still improving, but emotionally it feels like "Fuck you."
     
    So fuck you too.

    Howdy,
     
    After much debating I finally implemented the new color scale according to the discussion Please keep in mind that none of these decisions are arbitrary, they are based on a LOT of data.
    The new scale is the following, it can also be seen at the front page of WoTLabs:
     

     
    I've also made a colors.xc file for XVM to match this new scale for WN8 and Win Rate. I'm testing it and will update this post shortly.
    Your signature image may take a few hours to update to the new scale.
     
    Cheers!

    tomhwk reacted to Joe_B in WN8 Recent - Can we go back to days not battles   
    I wasn't in favor of changing from a set number of days to a set number of battles.
     
    Here's an example of why, and it is my own personal recent history.
     
    My recent (1000 battles) stats suck, and I know exactly why they do.  I spent 15 days power grinding the STA-1 during the on-track in order to buy a cheaper tier 9.
    I simply didn't give a shit about anything but getting in as many battles as possible.  I played a lot of really crappy battles, and when I died quickly I proceeded to play other "grinding through" tanks just as quickly/poorly so that I wouldn't be in non-STA games too much.  Yes, I basically played as bad as a bot and my stats in the STA prove it.
     
    Since then, I've played at a much slower pace in tanks I enjoy and do care about the outcomes.  I only have 464 battles in the last 60 days as compared to when I had 300+ in a couple weeks time and the results speak for themselves.  Yes, I am no unicum but when I am not in "just want to get a grind over" mode I can play fairly well.
     
    I maintain that having a set number of battles is just as flawed as a set timeframe for players who maybe only get in a few each day.
    With set number of battles, you also run into the situation where someone might not have even played the game for a month, yet their recent stats are unchanged.
    When they finally do play again, if they play again, their rusty play is masked by their cache of "recent" results.
     
    Yes, WN8 isn't supposed to be for small samples, but when something is labeled "recent" it should have at least occurred in the last month, right?
    Half of my "recent" battles occurred over 2 months ago... hell there could be 2 patches in that time frame (there have been).
     
    Since the adjustment has been made to the colors/scale, please take some time to revisit the "recent" timeframe.  Whether it be actual days or battles, it really needs to reflect what a player has actually recently done.

    tomhwk reacted to Aquavolt in Clan Reputations and Its Effect on You   
    I don't really remember anybody based off of clan tag, only what they personally did. Everybody I know in WoT I remember them primarily on how cool they were, attitude, and tanks played.
     
    For example, I remember Ziddy as the guy that told me to blow my load on whoever pops over the hill in clan wars.
     
    I remember FireIsHot as the caller in CRABS with the really sexy voice.
     
    I remember Carbonward as the asian that nobody can understand in teamspeak.
     
    As far as reputation goes, I personally think what you do individually will far outweigh whatever clan you're in. If you're a good poster, you'll be remembered as a good poster. If you're a really cool guy, you'll be remembered as a really cool guy. Don't let your clan get in the way of how you think others think about you, make your impression on others a good one.
     
    and avoid cr/d

    You will have to get started with improving your social skills at some point, so why not in a game where it doesn't really matter if you fuck up?

    I blame you for making bads think it's a good idea to run triple TOG platoons and screw the chances of their team.
     
    "Oh but we have good DPM and more HP than you" except the 3 of you useless fucks got out damaged by two tier 5 tanks and it took the 3 of you to deal a tog worth of damage.

    tomhwk reacted to CarbonWard in ROXY recruitment Thread   
    Once again posting up a recruitment thread for some cool dudes.
     


    Clan website
     
    ROXY has quickly grown from a small group of great players to a large group while maintaining and exceeding our set goal average of 1700wn8. While exceptions are made based on recent stats and other intangibles we strongly urge that all those potential recruits try to comply with either a 1700wn8, or 2000 recent wn8.
     
    We are again bumping up our recruiting efforts to be ready for the next campaign. (We hope to keep our multiple tournament teams rolling and growing, so if this interests you as well we can still accommodate that need)
     
    We are a serious yet laid back clan with an adult atmosphere. 
    Please look for one of our officers in game, or PM Johnyblood if interested
     
     
     
     
    *My take on this, if you want a solid chance at getting yourself a T62A Clone but don't want the theatrical drama that comes with being in a bigger clan, this is a chance you probably don't want to pass up.
