Now that I have my posting rights back I will make it up to the mods for another forum ban. Ah well, since 8.8 me and fellow forumties have noticed a huge increase in bad players, mostly in low tiers. I understood that after installing XVM, which i haven't used before. Now I'm surprised how bad the WoT player base is.
I think the increase is because of the new WoT TV ads across the Balkans and whole Europe. Not sure if in Europe, because i haven't seen people reporting WoT TV ads from Germany for example. Personally I've noticed the ad on 2 of the more popular channels here, thus the amount of Bulgarian players has increased significantly. The first battle I had after 8.8 there were at least  3-4 people speaking in my language talking how the VK 3002 M was OP.
Also on the forumites in-game chat channel people are always complaining about tomato teams. For example:

And many many more.
P.S. I just remembered about a Lowe with 35% WR and 68 battles.
Edit: Why a neg-rep?

I don't mind tomatoes if they can last more than 2 to 3 minutes. It's the ones that melt in one minute and leave you totally out numbered I have a problem with.

Just an example of one of the players from a all sub 44% win ratio 22K+ games platoon I was unfortunate to be in the same team as, to make matters worse the other team got a platoon with 55%+ players.

Eeh...I think you meant to say "bought" instead of "moved".

That's not the point, scientists are still clueless on how tomatoes were able to turn on a computer in order to download World of Tanks and install it, maybe in a few years the myth will be solved!

Noticed the increase myself & I am losing the enjoyment factor with it, the game now irritates more than it entertains & my tollerance of idiots is now gone leading to flaming of noobs & doing my best to wind them up.

Losing games is natural, to repeatedly be on teams so shite they are 5-0 down within the first 60 seconds with no chance of recovery is just getting beyond a joke though. There is no fun there, only frustration. My WR etc have been steadily climbing the last couple of thousand games but this last 2 week its in freefall.

Day after day the same teams of morons, Siema lemming trains rushing off to instant death, afk top tier tanks, team kilers who dont like the fact someone put the killing hit on something they had been damaging, the list is endless and it wasn't like this 6 months ago.

Looking around at other online games at the moment seeing what is out there. Think I'll take a break from this & see if it improves or at least get some enjoyment back after a break. I love my tanks but playing them in game that feels totally unbalanced is just no fun anymore.

Yup, just one example of many. I should have skipped playing today, lost 80% of the games.

The last weekend there were very many red players around, today however I nearly only met greens and above O.o.

6 of 30 were up to yellow (including me) the rest green and above, nearly the whole day. I still dont get what was going on today.

The amount of noobs increases if the player base increases. But there are also good players coming in. However, the amount of tomatoes increases and so does your chance of meeting more of them.

I thought in 8.8 they changed the matchmaking that it no longer tried to balance teams out?

NOPE.
Not only the new-noob player base is in continue expansion, with worrying side effects in high tiers, but in 8.8 WG added a new LAG feature, which make the job more complex for the players who escaped the tomato status, just to rebalance their efficiency and win rate.

I have the feeling that the introduction of missions seems to have increased the amount of players. People are being motivated to play more to earn the credit bonuses.

August was a kill steal fest and September brought a new meaning in the art of afking to 15 victories.

It took them almost 2 years actually but finally we can enjoy them in all tiers not only low ones.

Mate I don't want to offend you or anything but you don't exactly have stellar stats yourself ... Just saying before criticizing other just try to improve your game play first.
