So I have this one question on my mind...

Is driving tier 2-3 harder than tier 6-7?

In your opinion?

 

1) The tanks are a lot faster (every tier 2-3 drives 40+ km/h). You need bigger skill to hit them.

2) The tanks are smaller and harder to hit.

3) You can get killed in 1-3 shots by quite a lot of opponents. (of course in tier 6-7 TD's have started to not care about balance so they also kill you 2-3 shots [some of them])

4) The guns are not so accurate. (In bigger tiers with max aim you hit where you aim.)

5) There is a lot of good opponents - seal clubbers.

6) A lot of people don't know English so it's hard to communicate. (Also they don't know - def, cap, spot, etc.)

7) A lot of distraction from T18 trolls who rage about gold ammo even if I shoot with normal ammo. x)

8) Slightly more different tanks.

 

So please in your comments:

1) NO RAGE.

2) NO SPAM ABOUT ME BEING A SEAL CLUBBER. - in my opinion hitting fast driving tanks needs more skill than putting your tank in 1 angle (after 15 games of practice really you know how to do it.) (Also I have 1 amazing screenshot in noobmeter.com after 1 day playing only tier X for 40 battles the WN ratings went up +1k but I got "out skilled" because I don't drive that much top tier so those ratings are pointless/ mean nothing to me.)

3) NO -1 points...this is not meant as an insult to like tier 6-7 players. 

 

Just want to hear some opinions.

Well it certainly isn't certain to win if that is what you expect.  Sure, you can rack up kills quickly but in a world of chaos nothing is guaranteed.

 

Whilst out in my T2/T3 premiums the only tank that can relied upon to carry is the pak40 which can secure the win though a combination of spotting the whole enemy team on the smaller maps and the great gun helps here enormously too.

 

Ive been playing T1/T2/T3 games recently, maybe 10% of my nightly games, im enjoying it but you need to have your wits about you  still.

 

It must be so difficult for the new players :(

No, it's just you. Low tiers are pretty easy, especially if you have waaaay better crew/equipment than the others. Don't try to justify your sealclubbing.

 

You are bad and you should feel bad.

it's a totally different game at tier 2-3. i go hunting t18's in my cruiser 3, it's nicely kitted up with camo paint, net, binocs, vents 100% crew and pudding and tea but you can get instaderped by a t18 and when most of your team is white on xvm you don't know what to expect.

 

edit, i guess i try to do some sealclubber clubbing.... funniest was a tomato with thousands of games in their t18 a 58%winrate on it but a 49% one globally. i shot him through the front with ap.

i don't know i don't play lower tiers often i usually stick to the mid tiers. T18's aren't hard to kill either track them and go around or simply aim for the upper-lower glacis (if you know what i mean) or aim for the gun itself thats a weakspot.

well to you answer your question it only takes skill when you are playing a particularly difficult tank by that i mean it doesn't matter if it's tier 4 or tier 9 if you are playing a challenging tank and manage to get epic medals and carry your team then thats pretty much skill.

 

otherwise it depends on whether you find it challenging or not.

Usually most new players are put in server EU2 and I play on EU1 - many Stronk tier 2-3 players there.

Oh yes I feel so bad when a T18 with the big gun who has 12k games and 8k on T18 calls me a gold noob...

P.S. I have over 250 games on light VIC and T7 Car...Ok the crew on T7 has 6th sense and I know way more about the game than most players in this tier...(It's not me sealclubbing...it's my platoon mates :tongue: :trollface:)

It's magic!

 

The secret is:

1) Tier 6 company with JuriB (85%+)

2) I need the lamp on Light VIC :/ - platoon with EU-P 

3) VK-31 clans full name is Leichttraktor...trying to get 1666 games on the tank then I can sell it :P (maybe 1777 games cause 666 is too sinister/evil)

 

also Edit - I need the good % now because when I transition tiers it will just go down...

Sealclubbing in 'toons. You have to carry a lot less to win = you not get as good wn as you would get with T10.

I'm always hopping off those cruiser 3's :tongue:

Don't leave yourself vulnerable in a T18, stay smart, don't get flanked, let the enemy team get brave and derp them as they try to find you. 
I had a hilarious match on mines once where the entire team folded in seconds. I went back to base behind the cap and had my left shielded by the building and my right shielded by the mountain. I was also in camo behind the bush. 

They all came up the little rise one at a time and got derped in the face :playing:
