I had two consecutive battles, the same player was there both times and drowned itself in the beginning because the battle was obviously lost. Well it's team won both times so what does it know... But anyways, is there something we can do about these things? Except complain for unsportsmanlike conduct? And who has complaints left after three battles? I guess if I sent the replays to WG they will ban me for not obeying the rules, but what about this thing? Does it get no penalty?

I drowned my self a couple of times in these 1500-ish battles

 

I get pissed off when its 11-1 and the timer says theres 12 minutes left, usually happens on Malinovka with tomatos or when your team has like 3-4 platoons. I don't think the enemy deserves to kill me so i drown myself instead, i was never given a proper fighting chance with these monkeys on my team so you're not getting free damage off my tank either.

Why would we waste our precious time when it's almost certain that the game is lost?

 

I can't blame them...

 

Maybe a better MM? they hardly change anything in patch 9.22! there's so much wrong with this game and we get new tanks! :trollface:

Yeah. Sometimes that's the quickest way to get to the next game and hope you encounter less muppets there.

All your efforts go down the drain because they don't know how to play. Even a chimp could do better than them. 

 

@OP

Just don't care about it too much and press battle. It's bad for your heart.

There is a difference between drowning yourself with 11-1 or at the start of the battle. The former ofc. is sure loss, but if you drown yourself on purpose before the fight even begins you basically screw the rest of your team over. It should be punished severly, for instance let the drowner pay all the repair cost of 'his' team. At the very least 0xp and 0income.

The claim you saw him twice in a row and not only was water available but he actually drowned both times at the beginning is a rather strange (shall we say highly improbable). You sir are chock full of doo-doo.

nah it happens.

I often get into new game with people i just played with or against. Even afk'ers and also people who suicide from the beginning. Be drowning or just driving into the enemy.

No, this guy is a serial timewaster - he specialises in talking rubbish without ever offering a replay.

And how many times on your other accounts ;). But tbh I drowned myself few times too. And once it was with JT88 but then two enemy tanks jumped after me into the water so they can shoot me and they also drowned. So I'd say it was worth it xD

Short answer: Ban all external mods like XVM, problem solved.

But it didn't - that's the point. Like me saying I got stabbed tonight, then on the way to hospital someone else stabbed me - it's a lie - just because sometimes people get stabbed it doesn't make my story true.

I suppose the easiest way for WG to stop scumbags drowning themselves for whatever pathetic reason is to stop them drowning themselves. If they go into the water they become inactive but still 'alive', so any enemy can still kill them and the player can't leave the game until they are either killed or the end of the battle.

Did you read the description in his replay? Think the guy watches too many horror movies and documentaries then blends it all together into one toxic, pathetically stupid rant that should really have the guy perma-banned, from game and forum, and honestly, I think he will also be the better for it. 

 

Edit- and I'm referring to the small print description though the main description is pretty embarrassing too but nowhere nearly as bad as the longer rant under the results

Where I com from players who drown themselves are called cowards.

ALWAYS go out swinging.

Yes, you will lose, but you will give the fekker a bloody nose doing it:izmena:

Oh dear me - search WOT replays on his name  - good spotting Jabster - poor kid needs a bit of help, i feel bad for even leaving a comment now, he needs pity rather than his lies pointing out.

I doubt he wants your pity my good man.

Maybe he just needs a hug?
