....And you're not severely inebriated:

 

Also I have a dream that my teammates will stop blocking me for once.

I made the mistake today of logging on to EU1, buying 24hr prem ac and activating reserves.

Guess what happened next?

Loss:(

Loss:sceptic:

Loss:facepalm:

Changed to EU2 and it all got better:)

I was chasing the next set of skills was on 97% of the 2nd set of skill on my T34M so used a couple of personal reserves.. overall it was ok, shocking teams with and against including a few shocking rounds by myself... had 4 Guinness along the way VERY nice! Looking at the wotzilla results for the day was only meh WN8, I was mostly bouncing shots off tier8 tanks since I was also trying to make some credits so was going easy on the apcr, nothing good but nothing too bad either, 27 battles, 67% win rate which is pretty good not that it had anything much to do with me, got over the skills finish line with 30 minutes left on the PR but had enough of WoT at that point so left it at that.

  Was a strange evening of teams really, they were either very good or horrendously inept so for many of the battles that were wins I was playing too conservative and missed my slice of the xp, equally there was battles was so bad I got clipped and send packing early including getting flattened by an arty pretty much straight away at the start in the standard T34-85 lol...

I was more shocked at what was happening in Ranked Battles. People were thinking they can stay at base and be top 5 or they did some other crazy stuff.

In randoms I got TK'd by a Deathstar and then some random guy gifted me 500g for not insulting him.

Can get your account locked. Unknown person sends gift, then revokes payment. You accept gift & WG wants their money, so your account gets locked until you pay up (gifter also gets his account locked up, as pointed out by Spurtung).

You could say 'Why not go after the one who gifted me?' But thank people who would abuse that system for that (make account, gift stuff, revoke payment on said account & never bother with said account anymore), hence both get locked down.

 

Hence like in RL, never accept candy from strangers, you could end up somewhere you don't want to be.

Keep accepting gifts from strangers and then one day wonder why your account was locked and you need to pay back for the gifts those strangers charged back...

Both accounts get locked until someone coughs up the payment. Usually a scammer would have a discardable account to sell stuff at a cheap rate, charge back, and leave all the scammed people to pay up what WG's missing. So you can't really abuse that system to get your account anything.

 

WG lost a lot of money* due to "cheap gold" being sold this way.

 

 

*as in, someone else got real money and walked off and WG never saw it at all.
