What this forum is, and how to gain acceptance

Recommended Posts

 

 

FTR, for most of us here, stands for For The Retards. It's more akin to Fox News, everything posted there should be taken with a generous handful of salt (not saying WoTLabs isn't biased, but we are usually much more critical in our comments).

 

 

While that is true ftr is still the main/only source of info, at least for the eu server. For example, ftr knows weekend specials a month in advance while the offical wg website might post it a day before, or even after the special started.

I think in eu they are not even trying to pretend anymore that they give a shit about the community.

First post for me!  Also, testing to see if my profile settings are set properly....  :P

 

I've been playing for a few months and I realized that I do fairly well in certain light tanks.  Would I be accused of padding my wn8 stats if I drive tanks that give me really great wn8 sessions (3000+ wn8 entire game sessions) and I also truly find fun to drive?

hahaha well. i'm not made of magical unicorn hair, and i think enough people want the arty still, that that one seems like a stretch.

But just like anything, if you can show in numbers, that enough people want it changed - i have no idea if WG would change it. but, i would definitely escalate it.

That is one huge game mechanic though, and would take actual legitimate showing of statistics to gain any traction.

also, wotlabs has told me i've reached my limit of liking / upvoting posts.

you guys are so much fun, that i've already expended my limit of wotlabs "likes" XD

 

 

I didn't get the whole arti hate thing until I started tier 4-5 and I'm told it only gets worse at higher tiers.  

 

I think the best way for you to see the problem with arty here is to just keep playing the game yourself.  When you play something other than arty, you'll see how bad it is for the game that someone can basically reach out and end your match with no chance of them taking a hit in response. It would be like watching a ballgame on Saturday and being able to reach through the TV and smack the coach upside the head if you didn't like something they did and then go back to your couch, beer and nachos.

 

 Fun for you but probably not fun for the coach who has other concerns at the moment. 

 

Just keep playing the game and encourage other CMs, devs WG employees to actually play the game as well and it shouldn't take long for you to experience the issue 1st hand.  I think then everyone would be in a better position to figure out what to do next once the powers that be or folks they listen to have some 1st hand understandings of the frustration that arty is and why its such a turn off for the game.  We have about the same number of games played so it probably won't take long for you to start to go through the same frustration that has me logging off early more often than not now. 

 

btw I think its cool that CMs and devs and such come out of the ivory tower as it were to mingle with the rest of us schmucks :)  Not seen that much with any games I've played until now.

 

On the likes/dislikes thing.  The wot forum has limits for both as well. I think its cool you've found enough to like here to already burn through the daily limit.  They replenish every day I've noticed.

Crush the "red" team.....

I am a team player, I'm not very good yet. My fault, not the game.

I've been on the forum a while, haven't visited or played in months. Started at lower tiers to help work my way back up. Met with outright vitriol from first Tier VIII+ match in my Ferdie.

It's good to be back.

I just signed up recently.

I have missed the actually useful topics on WoT forum.

I have also missed a lot of people (most of you are thinking "who the hell is this clown").

also, yes I have a clan tag, it's my clan.  Just me.

it's Not A Real Clan.

TY.
