Usual late night team-

 

 

I use XVM to see which players may be the most help (ie a scout that knows how to scout) not to dis' other players, but the Hetzer at the bottom did have me shaking my head.

Anyway this is how the game ended-

 

 

So after over 34k games it's nice to still get the odd surprise.

 

To the player in question (if you read this) well done.

Well, he played 48k battles. It's quite possible he's a good player now who just failed so long and so hard his stats are never going to improve noticeably.

Uh... what exactly was surprising there?

Keep in mind that stats always show the average performance.

That is certainly possible.

If he didn't have XVM he wouldn't have posted this.

What tipped you off? The fact it's a screenshot of XVM player stats?

That is it normal to complain even before the battles begins¿?

I wasn't complaining and I never call out people on chat for having bad stats. Like I said I use XVM as a tool to see which players may be helpful.

 

After +34k games I've spent a hell of a lot of time playing a game I enjoy. In fact since the game was released I've spent  almost 115 days in battles (that doesn't include garage or waiting times).

 

The reason why I was shaking my head is because this guy is either a botter (and why has WG* let him get away with it for so long) or just a very bad player in which case why is he spending so much time playing on this game (I know he may being playing for fun but how much fun can you have when play so bad)

 

 

The reason I made this post is to point out that even players who look bad on paper can still be useful to the team (in this case he held the middle ground almost single handed)

 

 

*opps put GW instead of WG

I prefer "Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day" (Many think I have it from Fracture but I have heard it a lot longer ago then that,can't remember where it is from though)

Yes,XVM is a tool and most people seam to not use it properly.You how ever seam to know it pretty good.I would still like to say I don't trust people with good stats and low win% in comparison with stats. Same goes for players with over 20k games, never trust their stats,just try to pay attention to what they are doing to see if they are a real tomato or a wolf in sheep's clothing.

 

No idea why GW will just let people bot though, surly GW should have done something about WG's game...sorry I had to.

 

You don't have to tell me about "bad on paper" players but I am sure there are people out there that benefit from this.+1 from me
