So I woke up this morning to... this message. This guy, is a stat padder. He has 3k WN8, 30k battles, and 80% WR. Plays nothing but low tiers.

And a few days ago, I got these messages from random people as well, that hate my stats and call me a noob. Should I just ignore these?

Nothing wrong with being an average player, although an average player will become more of a liability the higher the tier. I know this from experience.

Learn to countertroll. Make them boil in their skin.
That's more fun than playing the actual game...

 

edit: In his defense...

When you play hightier tanks, your matchcount becomes entirely irrelevant. 2k or 20k, if you do badly in those, you are a bad player.

You are learning and I have no doubt you will become a great player.

 

Back in the day I was a burden to my team, waaaay worse player than you are now, and now I am a quite decent player. 

 

That statpadder thou...

This.  Statpader rerolls are super easy to wind up and so much fun.  I really enjoy it if one follows me into the garage.  :)

I would worry about him it's something he seems to 'get off on' both in-game and on the forums. Really sad to be honest.

Angriy kids throwing insults. Because they can't do anything else. Ignore, or troll them back. Just don't defend yourself, or they achieved their goal.

The response I use to messages like that is...."Do you always cry after battle?"....., they'll say their not, keep it calm and again you say they are and just keep repeating it in different ways  adding "would you like some tissues" etc.......gets them really worked up.....it's really fun. :teethhappy:

It's usually best to ignore them unless you're doing something in particular to get them. I doubt you do, though it's not uncommon to get some verbal abuse if your stats aren't great and you're playing top-tiers. Heck, I've got PMs after someone thought I did worse than my stats would suggest. :D

 

For the most part, these kinds of players think they're pretty darn good at the game. When their performance doesn't line up with their expectations, they'll find something to blame. That includes blaming the top-tiers, even if they arguably tried their best. If you do, there's no reason to care about them. Most likely you are, since you're already aware of your skill. That's a good thing - and it's not like you're a bad player anyway.

 

However, if you're guilty of any of the sins of WoT, like camping the base in your top-tier medium tank, whining about the team being bad (regardless of stats), trying to teach the team tactics while you're sitting in the valley on Lakeville or complaining about other players camping while you're dead/busy trading shots with heavies in your RU251 - then you would probably deserve a few 'hints' by PM.

Yes definitely ignore any kind of toxic/hate messages like this for sure and not everyone plays for stats either which is rather annoying when people seem to think thats what we do or should all be doing...... Just play the game how you want as long its being active and trying to do something than whats wrong?

Some interesting facts ... Half of all players are below average.

 

In any particular team, half of the players (7) can be considered to be average with one quartile (4) being above average and one quartile being below average.

 

When comparing two teams, if the 4 below average players in each team are very similar and the disparity (in skill/PR/WN8/WR/Games Played/Whatever) is in the 4 above average players then it is perfectly valid to consider the the top players to be the "liability".  Their job is to carry.  The tomatoes job is to get shot.

Are you after life advice ?

Your options seem to be

1) Enjoy trying to wind up the sender with cutting remarks ("Why are you complaining so much ?  Were you adopted ?)

2) Fly into a red mist blind rage and start swearing back.

3) Sulk and let the emotional damage affect your whole life.

4) Laugh and not care (this can be combined with #1).

 

My advice, do mostly #4 with occasional #1 if you're in the mood.  Never let #1 turn into #2 and never, ever, under any circumstances fall for #3.

 

This is a game, right ?  For fun !

First time I've seen criticism based on survival rate and destruction & damage rates though.  Troll takes his stats seriously.

TBH.......I can't understand why you would waste the time and energy.

I just got called a "judenschlampe" (what ever that means) for (from what I could gather) shooting gold ammo at an anime tank. Oh well, I ridiculed the pleb and blacklisted him.

 

Obviously I should just bend over and fire normal 171mm AP (his "nipples" are 175mm) with my black prince at the front of O-Ni or maybe I'll just FLANK him with my blazing speed while his allies probably won't help him because they like to play it fair and square.

 

Well, I don't really mind those. At some level they make me even happy I guess. You always know you've done well when you gate hate mail.

You know that just encourages them, right?  They thrive on salt.
