Hello players !

  These days playing Random Battles is equal with a punishment, everyone is playing for stats and win-rate and nobody cares about victory, even if it's possible. I want to mention here, that I respect those players who tries to win the battle and tries to give her / his 100% performance to the battle, and least but not least to work together with the team mates. The sad part all of this is that one mode has changed the whole rule of this game, since it's so important nowadays to have a good stat and win-rate, that a meaning of playing with team is not important anymore.

 Day by day I see more and more lost battles, because people don't care anymore to play together with the team, they want to fight alone and prove that they can win the battle without any help. The result of this Rambo mode is that they die in the first minutes without doing anything, then they start to whine or blame other people. If some players don't start to play in Rambo mode, then they actually give zero help to their team mates or run away when their team mates needs help, just to live one more minute (without any extra damage earned).

  However let's not blame only the people because everyone was a newbie, and everyone has started somehow this game, and no one can be a skilled player from one day to another one. Except if you play with meta tanks or with a terminator premium tank, and I didn't mention the mighty and mystic Mäuschen and Maus what has 5% more win-rate in Random Battles. Playing with super heavy (meta) tanks these days is one of the most easiest way to win a Random Battle, even if you are an inexperienced player who is playing only for fun.

  A last thought, I was curious about what kind of players are playing these days, so I installed one the most hated mode in the history of World of Tanks, yes I am talking about the XVM. I played some battles on the last days and I was simply shocked, day by day I got more and more inexperienced players and we lost more and more battles, even those battles what started as an easy win. Somehow it seems that the Match Making gives you lemon sometimes, and I am not talking about one or two battles more likely two or three days. I still hope that one day I can see the old World of Tanks or maybe a better optimized one, and I hope that in the future one mode will not has such a huge impact on the whole game play, just like today. 

I would like to know other peoples opinion about the current Match Making and game play, and also what you guys think about the (most hated) XVM mode ?

Your sentence contradicts itself.

However, your problem is very easy to solve - get good at the game.

If you use your brain, you know what I am talking about, everyone is WN8 addicted and don't care anymore to win the battle "just damage and stat".

I think 95% of the time players play for the win, other 5% they farm damage. The problem is that you need some experience and skill to understand how you win in this strategy game, just 50%+ of playerbase still not there and they pew pew around the map.

You do not understand the meaning of the word everyone.  You mean many or a lot. 

 

You see, I am a part of your everyone and I do not specifically play for stats.  I play to enjoy the game and to win.  Yes, I know what my WN8 is.  But it is a number solely for me.  I do not use it as a comparative tool or a digital willy to wave in other peoples faces.  

 

Odd you talk about people playing for stats and have a stats signature.  You may want also learn the meaning of the word irony.

That doesn't change the fact that you massively contradicted yourself, so don't tell other people to use their brains if it's you who doesn't do that 

And besides that, you are horribly wrong. Most players in this game are bad and don't care about anything. Statspadders are a rather small minority.

Can I join in.

 

You make no sense there at all which does not make me want to bother with the rest of your wall of text.

Your recents show that despite a higher than average wn8, your win rate sucks. Meaning you are farming damage at the redline and scoring useless damage which is not helping your teams to win at all.

 

End of story.

The objective for every game mode in WoT is to win (by every legal mean). I don't care if it's performed by redline sniping, yoloing, camping at the base, capping the base or leading the push as long as our team is winning.

 

Redline snipers, campers and bots usually decrease the change of winning the match. By judging your performance what if you focused more playing for the stats and maybe it results better winratio too.

 

What comes to VXM, I like him better than BBV.

Grow a brain, and use it.

 

And stop camping. With 1400wn/48wr  recents you are a model case of player playing for wn8, and you aren't even good at it.

 

 

Bloody hypocrite.

This was my favourite part.  I rate this a solid 5/7.

 

Also, could you please show me a list of all the people who are forcing you to play this game you hate so much?

its very rarely i get support from my team anyway, maybe for me the best you can do is to focus on yourself and give your best so you buy your team more chances to win.

I'm used to spam the minimap and always try to get help like that.

there might be players who indeed care about their WN8 you know (maybe coz they want to join a good clan) but that doesn't mean they don't have fun in the game.

The game is meant for fun, and that's all it is about. It's just a game.

Yeah stop being selfish guys and playing for winrate....go throw yourself infront of enemy fire to help your team!

 

Seriously.. as others have said OP, you're a hypocrit..you're recent avg dmg is around same as mine even though I'm playing a tier higher on avg but winning  7% more games than you. Should I stop playing for the win and do more useless dmg after my team has died?

Inb4 someone points out a sub 50% player calling out for more team play. Because that obviously wins games. (which it probably does, as long as you're doing it smart) He's just unfortunate for having bad teams most of the time. Like not playing for the team as in spotting for him or meat shielding.

Wot is a stat-game. If one states that doesn't care about stats, fine. But after all, stats are the key when evaluating performance. In wot, everything is based on stats, which leads to contribution towards winning, directly/indirectly (for example damage/spotting).

Just because in competitive games people like to compare and compete.
And stats make it possible.

You can play it for fun and ignore stats, but with what right are you to judge others who care about stats?

That's arrogant and discriminating behavior. I hate salty cucumber, but I understand and approve that someone else might like it.

Self-respect usually reflects from the ability to respect and understand others. People who are too eager to judge, are the ones who usually lack in that particular area.

If your point is that players are more concerned with stats than with winning, then say so, don't say they are concerned with W/R but not victory, as unless you win your W/R goes down. That is what was contradictory.
