When I ask this question I am not thinking only of matchmaking, that's why I opened separate thread. Lately probably something like 80% of all games I played were 15:2 or 2:15.

That's kinda weird. It could be crappy mm but what I noticed are glitches even when I do not have lag, actually for the most of the time ping is fine. Symptoms are exactly as when lag is high but there is no any.

I've noticed that other players are commenting "wtf" and similar comments in chat.

 

There is also problem with spotting mechanism, my friend had exactly same experience. I get spotting points for something that happened on the other side of map, however I do not get any when I actually spot.

 

Gameplay became so frustrating that I deleted game. I am making one month break. Will see if anything changes when I come back.

Nothing wrong with spotting, you probably dont understand it...

Seems okay to me... although it did take them a while to fix the chat.  Maybe the game is just broken for you?  I don't know.  I do know that certain times of the day yield more inexperienced players (worse teams).   I haven't seen the 15-2 or 2-15 that you are speaking of but they do happen.  

 

What are you expecting to change in a single month?  Let's be realistic.  Neither you nor the game will change that much in a single month.

Is the game broken? probably No but there are broken elements within the game - Arty, Type 5 heavy etc. 

 

Shite happens, that's just the way it is sometimes. I've recently started a new tank and been performing at Sub bot level. Crap happens, Even when I started to get my act together the results still weren't coming and my WR on that tank still stinks. It will get better slowly though, I hope.

Most of the tanks I play got 6th sense and crew 100%. I didn't play for more than a year and started again in November last year. Didn't notice anything of mentioned above until few weeks ago.

I am awaiting that big patch they announced. Isn't that in March?

Because you are crapposting and didn't address anything I mentioned above. I have no replays cause game is fully deleted.

I clearly wrote that my friend had same problem, that's why he stopped playing scouts.

 

Here is example, I am camping near base with TD on big map such as arctic circle and I get spotting points for enemy arty on other side of the map I didn't even see. On the other hand I didn't get any when I actually did spot enemy.

I adressed the spotting you brought up? The part about steamroll might be true but they have happened always. The glitching you talk about is hard to judge because it sounds more like a feeling..

 

And a textual desciption can never completely explain what happend, maybe your friend has replay?

It doesn't matter. Sometimes games, RNG, MM and whatever just all go against you. It happens. Good players find a way through. I'm average at best, not good.

Spotting points come from others doing damage to tanks you are spotting, not simply for spotting them. That might have been your friend's problem scouting. When scouting it does not help if your team are not in position to hit what you light. That includes your arty by the way. The target might be lit but still behind cover based on where your arty is. Or your arty might simply have other targets it considers more important.

 

Without knowing which map and what tank you were driving it is really difficult for anyone to comment on your complaint. Where exactly 'near base' were you camping? And which base, NW or SE? This would be a lot easier if you had replays to show.

Sooo... the community is bad because people dare to disagree with you? Grow up...

 

You are still a new player and only saw a fraction of the content so far, so making bold claims about the game is a bit naive. Same with making claims about gamemechanics you don't seem to understand.

 

And yes, I'd love to see a replay that shows those spotting issues.

i have had these problems and it is costing me wn8 , but i play for fun , however there have been times when it seems lag is high or porting of the tanks appears to happen , im wondering if it is perhaps a weather related issue , we have had many snow storms ect throughout Europe , it could be something as sill as snow on the lines or indeed frost of said lines , however there is a high influx of children playing at certain times during the day , you enter a platoon to hear a small child screaming in russian and you know then oops not a good battle to be in :)

The game broke the moment they introduced Russian tanks that are artificially set to be superior to other tanks. You cant do anything with their turrets, yet they can remain camped behind cover with just their turrets exposed & shoot without worry of being significantly damaged. WG are completely & utterly obsessed with Russian tanks & you only have to check out the stats of players with the new Russian tanks & see a spike in performances playing those tanks. The Tier 9s should be tier 10 with the way they perform.

Completely & utterly destroyed the balance of the game & if they introduce Premium Tier 10 tanks. Well, I can see many people just quitting.

It could also be witchcraft but it's not. It's simply you not understanding the game mechanics. Post up a replay as someone asked for earlier and whatever you think happened and folks will help you by explaining what really happened and how. This isn't me having a go it's really the best thing you can do so that folks can explain what's going on to you.

And that's why you don't enable voice chat.  It's the same with any online game.

WN8 has no monetary worth.  It also doesn't get you anywhere with the girls and does not get you a promotion at work.  All in all I would say it was pretty useless.

 

If, as you say you "play for fun" then I suggest you forget about WN8.
