I am beginning to hate the amount of players with premium tanks in the game.

The majority of them are useless as team mates.

I'm convinced the thought process behind these players, is; 'Premium tanks deliver guaranteed wins'.

90% of games played will result in the premium tankers occupying the bottom 5 on the battle results page.

 

I despair when I see Lowes, Patriots, Revs, and the like, on the battle start-up.

Considering 80% of the tier 8 tanks are premiums. It's hard not to avoid it.

And the last time I played my '59, was when ? Also, you seem quick to point out my 800 battles in the '59, but fail to put my win % in your post.

Do you edit the news for the BBC too ?

You're a bit like one of these morons in game that do nothing to help the team, and when asked why, they trot out the, 'Well my win % is better than yours'. Even though they do nothing to help the team in that particular battle.

As though having a 2% difference in win ratios gives them an excuse to do nothing to help the team.

Well yeah...he probably tried to say something with stones and glass houses. You can hardly blame bad players for playing bad in their premium tanks because WG allows them to after they pay a certain fee...and tank wr alone doesn't mean anything really and we have already established that you need to play a lot better for every percent of wr above average.

Someone beating themselves up over their premium tanks.

From the 80 tanks i have, about 50 are premium tanks. Last year i've told myself, i don't need another premium. A regular tank is just as good or maybe better. Every premium tank has his (dis)advantage.

But then came IS-3A, Cromflake B, Liberté, Patriot, Defender and Primo Victoria.

 

I will think about OP's post when i buy two new premiums this weekend.

Well, at least you'll stick to your principles for your most recent tanks over the last few weeks and not play premium tanks.........

Mmmm.....maybe not.

 

How did that 37% in your Scorpion G work out as being an "effective team mate" then?

Only +8% more?

 

I've seen someone with WR of 33% but that was "ages" (like 3+ years) ago.

If people want to buy a premium tank, they can buy one if they so choose. Sure, it isn't good for newbies to buy a Lowe, but it's their money.

Pretty sure it's to do with grinding credits...

But whatever makes this guy feel better about himself.

True, in all fairness you must have done those when it was OP, way back in the day.

So, what's your excuse for the 964 battles with the Skorpion G?
