Its getting a bit silly... I was just in a battle that lasted less than 2 minutes. It was tier 8.... i'm seriously beginning to dislike how the game is atm. You spend longer in queue's or the garage than you do in battle. 

 

Something needs to be done about it. Its really getting boring.

Well, I think short, whiny threads is a problem, but you don't see me making a thread about it. :P

 

 

Anyway, this thread lacks content. Try the following if you want to be taken seriously. There are two replies above me, and I bet they are not taking you seriously (honestly didn't look).

1. Specify the problem better.

2. Provide data. Wotreplays if you need more than the five games you play before you give up.

3. Interpret your data.

4. Provide a short summary of why you consider this a problem. Do you think many others feel the same?

5. Provide some thoughts on how, or even if, you think it can be corrected.

​Mate, I'm a little too frustrated with it to go on about it. Its not like I'm the first guy to put a thread up on it. Its not like WG will listen anyway. 

 

That aside, thanks for the advice.

Eh, know the feeling. 3-5-7 is part of the problem, but the ongoing special is another. Top ten is only required for fifteen battles, and the 13k base experience does not require you to be top ten. In terms of "experience per minute" it makes far more sense to play aggressively.

If it you only started to find it boring after 21,352 battles I'd say that's a pretty interesting game.

​Its not just today, or this special though. Its a regular ongoing thing. I don't see the point elaborating much on it. No doubt the thread will be closed anyway as its "not constructive"

Yeah...would be better if it took a bit more effort than just get xp....Be top 5 for the 15 battles and be top ten to get the xp counted for the 13k xp mission would be ok. I have been basically playing very aggressive the whole time. Sometimes it just won't work but at least i got a 7 game win streak before the creme de la creme logged in. There are just to many missions that encourage playing bad.

It was way way worse a year or two ago. The yolo tactics was strong then along with lemming steamrolls. So most battles was done in less then 3 min. Now most are more passive, and thus most games are dragged out for longer. As most of my gamed today did were close to 10 min vs 2 min long. I could not say that over a year ago. As my record game for a top gun is 1 min an 45 seconds. And that's from last year when the yolo lemmings was out in force.

 

Then again I play on EU2 90% of the time. So no idea how bad or good EU1 is these days.

And if you really want battles that usually go long, play WoWs. Strangely, despite the complaints about blowouts here, WoT is still rather more popular.

Just play Erlenberg standard battle/encounter/assault (even if assault is ending faster in this last days). No more fast games and hurray 15min camping across the river waiting for someone move 2cm to get spotted and get deleted by the 15 enemy tanks (or 14, as one of the tanks usually drowns in the first 10sec because...). Usually when the bell for the last 2min rings is when the fun begins and everyone just yolo's in.

If you were all dead inside 2 mins then clearly your team epic failed. That being the case how  long do you think is an acceptable time for a battle to last if your team is going to go full retard.?

​We actually won the battle. I wasn't complaining about a defeat.

 

Just seems to be all over too quickly a lot of the time.

​I tried WoWs. It's not bad, but not really my thing.

For me the battle length is an issue. It is harder to work on any given mission and the game simply takes more time to play.

I think the maps are too small for the speed and visibility of the current tanks ...

3/5/7 with red players in top tanks = 2 min battle.
