  1. Just as XVM is more than its ratings display, WoTLabs is more than its ratings tracking. You will certainly still be able to find threads of people talking about the development of WN8 and WN9. Those threads are all from 2017 and older, because everyone gave up for various reasons that you can read about from those very threads.
  2. The thread exists because one person who doesn't understand how WN8 works decided to make a thread asking about how WN8 works, which is not something that is unusual for this forum, but happens with much less frequency as the game declines in population and the public opinion towards rating systems sours. XVM exists because it is more than a tool for displaying rating systems. I am here because I am passively interested in what new changes are potentially down the line for this game, but instead of learning anything significant about those, I am answering the questions of a new poster who simultaneously asks them and wonders why anyone would bother answering.
  3. Honestly, aren't sweeping changes like these just a ploy to make the developers look like they're busy? Who are they aiming to please here? New players won't know the difference between old and new mechanics, and changing up the game this way isn't likely to draw them in if they aren't already interested. Older players that left have probably done so due to issues that have mounted up over a long period of time and have most likely moved on or at least won't trust WG to have fixed their biggest gripes to come back in any dedicated way. Current players, satisfied enough with the status quo to keep playing, risk having what they are enjoying be upended to something alien and being sent over the edge to quit. There is zero momentum behind a new player-made ranking system as far as I can tell. Current systems have been tainted greatly by historical balance, population decline, and lack of data transparency, and every major mechanical rework WG publishes is an additional gut shot to its efficacy. And, not only has it become practically impossible to derive a rating system out of publicly available stats, but the community doesn't seem to want one anyways.
  4. Good event. Didn't award enough tickets or emphasize most points, best average, or race times over a season. 285 total races and 8350 racing points in the end, averaging 29.298 per game.
  5. 2420 points in 80 races yesterday, averaging 30.25. I guess it's possible if I try. I've done my time one season and had enough, so I'll let someone else on the team bear the torch for the tournament. It's not that simple when it comes to the races anyways. If you want to get the damage medals, you're better off letting enemies cross the finish line rather than killing them so that they heal up and leave more available damage. Once on cap, then it's about focusing down the low target, but you also don't want to kill all your opponents off before capping the base. There's a delicate balance of damaging the enemy enough to get 1k, but not so much that they die before you can cap. 1k damage is more valued at 10 points than capping at 5, so it's more valuable to go for the damage, but if your teammates are doing that too, you might screw yourself out of both if the enemy doesn't have enough health overall. I've seen worse behavior though. Won a game where my allies had under 100 damage each. Couldn't believe it when I saw the results screen for that.
  6. Ended the day only 1990 points up, 70 shy of yesterday. Brought my average down to 28.9-ish. Still think I'm pretty good, but there's apparently a guy on the red team doing an average just under 31, so they must have some miracle drug I don't.
  7. Find one of the Sport vehicles in your garage and select it. Use the racing flag icon in the filter to find them.
  8. Good stopping point for now. Averaging 29.43 points per race. Only one other person in the top 14 that is getting at least 29 points per race. I feel pretty dominant in this format.
  9. There are no crews associated with these vehicles.
  10. I'm pretty sure not signing up for a team only disqualifies you from the leaderboards or the team rewards. You can still play and get the individual rewards.
  11. This game is very poorly made. Shots and tanks can start moving at different speeds and register differently if your machine starts performing differently, which often happens as you move the camera side-to-side. I can consistently get max points in this, but it frustrates me how it is probably physically impossible to speed run this. I can't move my camera to intercept the light tank when it turns around, because then my shot will miss.
  12. Most fun I've had in WoT since whatever that escort event was two or so years ago. T-50 Sport is king with superior DPM and reload, and it drives pretty easy too after you get the hang of it. I haven't even bothered touching the other cars. This is like the Mammoth all over again. Chaffee is garbage, Leopard is acceptable. Physics is a little wonky and will sometimes throw your back end up and twist you. Has happened to me most around teammates, but I've seen it once or twice up ramps while in overdrive. I need a good damage log mod that can help me keep track of which enemies I've hit. XVM's isn't working, and I'm losing out on some of my Rapid Fire racing points because of that.
  13. I guess I don't need to explain my point if you're going to make it for me. I don't think you or the rest of the crew have a proper concept of who's responsible for that situation though.
  14. What kind of stance is this?? Posters have to explain themselves against harassment because mods don't want to do their job of stopping the harassment? This is bait anyways - if he explains why he has a certain way of posting, people will just rail into him for that in addition to the root issue, and it won't stop until they get bored with it or, in this case, the poster quits. Mod crew looking super on-point, managing this forum with less than 20 average posts per day. Did Never remove the active users list from the bottom of the main page too? Beautiful.
