I had a day off yesterday and i spent a long time in game platooned with my son, OMG there are a lot of terrible players out there this week.  I found it impossible to play to my normal ability as it seems every game was pure chaos.  Im putting it down to the school holidays, could i be right do you think?

 

If this is the case, I think ill put off playing the game until the little sweethearts go back.

 

Strangely, it is the lower tiers we found the best players!

it's kinda weird playing with your son and blaming kids for tomato salads. But who knows, you might be 80 and your kid 60 :trollface:

Most bad Players i've met somewhere on Teamspeak (Noobclans of RL-Friends starting WoT) have been 30+, if i would have met them in Game i would probably think they are Kids too because you think an adult cant play that bad... but they can!

Never notice the difference, any time of day or week, holidays or specials there are always horrible teams waiting to welcome you into their fold.

 

Only the MM can stop this but it's never going to change.

Ok fairy enough, ill blame myself then.  My son (9) and myself (47) usually play well together although I pretty much always play better solo than platooned.

I rarely have the oportunity to play during the week and day times, maybe chaos is normal then..in which case OMG!

Normally I blame WG but yesterday :tongue: I think I might have end up on 10% win ratio.First game in a stock T71 with no skill crew, yeah you need to train them in some vehicle and I found myself a bush on campinovka and lit up three bloody tier X enemies for 5 minutes. My whole team ignored them and was happily shooting at a previous spotted position of a purple Jgd Pz (mind you my tier X's were in reach and just blue).

 

The rest of the games consisted of my team with <2 times the skill of the other team. I also had my first game ever with a tier X platoon 3 man with skills less then 100 combined (forget the replay, the platoon was hilarious to watch but I f-ed badly myself in the beginning :tongue:)

You're not wrong, last few times I had fairly prolonged bad streaks, it coincided with school breaks. I guess the only good way to deal with it is to get into stronk plutons.

Blame it on the kids, noobs, sad song (that's a song actually) but I haven't really noticed anything out of the usual trend. Average skill has been collapsing for some time but we pretty much got used to that.

 

Besides that the normal rules apply: prefer mornings over afternoons and evenings, weekdays over weekends and you should be able to keep your sanity (it is working for me at least).
