Because they have to pin the blame on someone

I have no idea, but i would rather play with kids(good reflexes, fast learning, etc) than with old people.

 

It's funny tho, because WoT playerbase is waaay older in average than - let's say - CoD's. WoT is a dads' game . :)

Because people 1) need a scapegoat and 2) need to feel better about themselves. By implying someone is a kid, they can simultaneously insult someone for being immature (which is what they really mean) and put themselves into a position of authority (they think) by implying themselves to be older/adult/mature, thus fulfilling both needs in one poorly-thought out comment.

Because kids are often seen as immature (which is true, but "it's not that bad") so from this immaturity people will deduce that young players will play badly, will be more prone to teamkill (because they're immature) and to insult people (because they respect nothing in the internet). But this isn't true, because it's a big prejudice. A bit like saying that all bad players come from Eastern Europe.

well since the majority of the player base is over 25 WOT players need something to pin the blame on their own epic fails (and also their teams IF they played well) so they pick kids poland and 'tomatos' because it's easier to blame others than go oh yeah maybe i shouldn't of gone here or i could of gone to this location or done this and that.

 

personally i just ignore it since i am a adolesent (18) also the older folk are just jealous that yer young:trollface:

In my experience, 13 year old can be just as bad or as good as 40 year old dad.

I have kids... I play and my dad plays too, so technically i'm a playing kid as well hahaha! I will be 32 in two weeks time..
My dad is a true grandpa in WOT he's from 1961 ;)

 

there's nothing wrong with being young and playing WOT. It's the a*holes that need to grow up : Calling people names, statbashing, being lame... Doesn't matter what age you are. Spoiling the game is a no no
