I am not a great player, I was playing for months before I even knew there was a zoom. However it strikes me , that 9 times out of 10 people in random battles go off gung ho, with no plan, no team work, and no regard for other players. I have been pushed into the line of fire, abandoned when outnumbered, seeing all the players go 15 different directions and none of it makes any sense. 

Why don't players just take a few seconds at the start and write out a basic plan, i.e. Tier 6-8 go left everyone else go right? It would make for a more organised and efficient team. 

Thoughts ?

If tier 6-8 in a battle went left...there would be nobody left to go right....

 

As for team work, this game is about individual skill levels and how your individual skill can affect the outcome of a battle over a large sample size.

 

Statistically speaking, the people using XVM etc will see you as a liability, and as such you will be subject to in game trolling. You need to seriously improve in order to stop this.

Everybody has their own plan....their own spot, where they once killed seven(make up your own number)  enemy tanks and so go there every battle hoping to relive that one time in 7,000 battles.;)

Odd this weekend. For me at any rate. I get one in three games that are worth sticking around for. I've been going to watch TV when my team is 7 down in the first 90 seconds. Just can't be arsed.

I wouldn't mind but it's the same thing over and over. That's why I can no longer give two fooks.

Lower tiers tend to be more gung-ho - a combination of newer players not having experience, lower view range, inaccurate guns, weekend casual players who only want to make the gun go bang and seal clubbers and credit grinders who know what they're doing, have fully pimped-out tanks and crews looking to feed on all those casual gung-ho players.

 

Further up the tiers it tends to be less so, partly because you have to have experience to be there (tier 8 premium buyers excepted) and partly because making a mistake tends to be punished more severely.

Sounds like a plan.

 

I used to have a friend who would type out a detailed battle plan in chat.  Half the team would be dead before he finished.

To 90% of the player base it is...

 

The problem for them appears to be that one tank they meet which seems to hold them all up :trollface:

Missions with very basic and/or 'artificial' requirements is a problem too. Getting two kills, for instance. Not a huge problem, but for sure doesn't help.

I'd abandon you if you were outnumbered too. If you feel that staying in a position where there are more enemies than you can handle is a good idea then you deserve to be left :P  I've tried teamwork with random players before and like going to beach on Overlord map, you quickly realise it's pointless.

 

You are forgetting everyone playing WoT is basically Rommel (unless they're Guderian or Zhukov) and it's only the idiocy of the other 14 players that is stopping them being bestest player EU. Would you listen to some random stranger who has a better than evens chance of being a total window licking thundercunt who is going to get you killed with his fuckwit ideas and then blame everyone else for the lost game?

The last time I tried talking tactics I was told to shut up because I was only orange and the team should listen to the player with green stats. Then I watched on the minimap as they fed themselves to enemy campers because green stats had told them to push into an area the enemy could cover without exposing too much while I advanced up the other flank which was nearly empty.

Because they know how to play this game. You have to retreat with them in time whenever possible.

If neither of you chaps have seen it, I would heartily recommend an old Mike Judge movie called Idiocracy - sums this up nicely.

WG bot in progress.

Analyze movement pattern throughout account progression

Notice abnormality

Put all A1 camp pattern players into your team

 

 

Why not make the map Pilsen or Stalingrad as well eh?

True, it's practically a documentary. :(
