No this is not an agony aunt thread it is about World of Tanks.

 

I have a friend who has been playing the game for 2-3 years now and has nearly 13k battles. He got me into the game and we occasionally platoon up.  He seems to have a chip on his shoulder about me being a crap player and never being better than him. 

 

Now in recent weeks, I have been doing rather well, or at least I like to think I am, and yet he will not accept that I am improving and catching him up as during this time we have not platooned up. 

 

http://www.noobmeter...flyingmanticore - Me

http://www.noobmeter...r/eu/whitetalon - Him

 

So these are the stats from noobmeter for the pair of us showing overall, which he is better, last 7 days and last 1000 battles.  As you can see, in the recent 2 lines I am not far off of him in stats.  The only ones he really beat me on are average damage and xp which are inter-related and average tier.

 

So I really do wander why he can't accept I am fast improving and will catch him and possibly beat him.

If a tree falls in a forest, does anyone care?

How are we supposed to know whether he is jealous or not? Have you tried asking him? :unsure:

He has less than 1000 WN7 after 13k battles? And what, he thinks he's good?

Me must've had a really long learning curve if you ask me.

In my opinion you shouldn't care about his stats and just focus on your own performance.

I often wander.

Sometimes I wander into threads on the internet and wonder about the maturity of the person who posted it. 

Do they have self esteem issues? Are they trying to create a persona where they will be judged as successful on a computer game and forum? 

 

Do they understand that online/gaming success means nothing in the real world?

A one-eyed man, claiming he has better vision than a blind man...

I was thinking the same :P.

 

OP, ask him "are you jelly my friend", this should yield the answer you seek and there would be no need for this now moved to off-topic thread ;).

With your current stats you should catch up in no-time.
