Pls stop blocking your team mates, I know that maybe your favorite position is taken by someone else or perhaps thats the only good flank on that map but pls stop acting like you're entitled to that location. Move and go somewhere else or learn to share it. 

 

Its been happening to me and i am sure some of you have experienced similar scenarios a lot lately hence why I made this topic so that it may help prevent such situations from occurring.

I doubt people will care, even though your point is good. if they did care, they wouldn't be doing it.

wot community = trash and as long as WG doesn't do anything about it, nothing will change

 

I send a ticket to wg about people driving in my aiming circle on purpose when I played arty, or just jump in front of my gun when I am sniping. they only replied like, other people have the right to do damage as well.. like wtf..

it's blocking on purpose and I even get to pay a fine if I fire and hit them accidentally. it's unsportive, but wg doesn't care. why should I then?

No i reckon, because they have been playing the game since it's inception, that it's their rock or bush and nobody else is going to use it.

You see this happening in pre school a youngster has to play with his favourite toy. If they can't they will have a tantrum.

Shame really some never grow up.....

Firstly, they might have a point. Look at your position and the tank you're playing and try to work out whether that's a good spot for you or if you might have a better game and contribute more elsewhere on the field. Some tanks are more suited to some positions than others and it's a learning process you need to go through.

 

Secondly, "hence" means "why". Stop using both, it's redundant.

I just give up the spot now. Even if they are utterly useless in the same spot, I feel like I can have more on an influence by moving elsewhere rather than getting rammed and/or shot at by a window-licking team mate.

It's not correct to put those together, but hence doesn't mean why.

Strictly speaking, no, but I'm tailoring my posts to those who don't have English as a first language. The context cues should have told you that.

And you are crying about it to whom exactly? 

Because I can guarantee you that most of the a-holes that do such pushing do not visit forums, ever.

I do the same too. More often than not i have a nice hulldown cover seconds later without having to do evil things like blocking their retreat or firing from behind them.

Pretty much this.  If someone is that much of an idiot that they have to have that exact spot then you won't educate them so may as well make the best of a bad situation.  Otherwise you have two useless players.

I think you're expecting too much, half of them can't even get off the spawn without a pile-up

80% of players are kids / angry teenagers / sociopaths, with no concept of altruism at all. Selfish play is no surprise.

  The meaning of the word Hence is as follows not why as you seem to think.

hence

conjunction
1. therefore, thus, consequently, for this reason, in consequence, ergo, on that account The Socialist Party was profoundly divided and hence very weak.
adverb
1. later, afterwards many years hence

Your chances are much higher if you try to assassinate Putin while running towards him with an AK-47 and yelling I'm gonna kill your [edited], and managing to escape with noone been able to id you or hurt you; than trying to find actual human beings that aren't toxic, [edited], self centered douche bags and actually taking into consideration what you are saying.

Mr Spence (assuming he reads World of Tanks forums and recognises your avatar) will be most upset with your sentence construction, lack of appropriate capitals and general use of punctuation. Although admittedly the use of grieve and grief is interesting in a modern internet context. They both mean intense sorrow, but the later also means trouble, annoyance, harassment and vexation

 

"Your daily reminder - no griefing your allies. Thanks."

its that or shoving you and spinning your side to the red team. joke is its the same people who cry uninstall newb or post aftermatch insults to the garage.

 

what they don't realise as they blame away, THEY were on the losing side, and it was THEIR skill that wasn't good enough to replace that newb.

ie they were crap as well and too stupid to know it, probably unlike that newb who is always scapegoated for THEIR lack of skill.

 

It takes more than damage to win a battle, and it's sometime the one who stayed at base who blocked the cap

All of the meanings under the first numbered definition also fit the word "why" in the context of the instance so all you're doing here is confirming my point. Bit redundant but thanks anyway. :great:
