playing team stuff last night and checked a players account, he had a 76% win rate !!

anyway, basically only player 671 games, all tier 10, tvp, bat chat, super conq and 1 premium tank the defender

 

I assume he played mostly team games in defender and converted free xp but how much have they spent to do that, it must be hundreds??

My suspicion is that re rolls are far more common than supposed. It's another reason not to be impressed by stats.

I find it such a shame when people reroll though it just goes to show that all they care about is numbers on the game and let it get to their head instead of having fun and enjoying the game for what it is :/

3 tier X's with free XP? Assuming he skipped a few tanks with min XP needed ofc. That's still at least 1 600 000 XP. That would cost close to 200 euros. But if he thinks it's worth it. Good for him.

And thus why I was more scared of the blue guy with 20K games, vs the tier 8 premium with 0K games and 4K WN8 back when I used XVM. As 90% of the purple alt accounts had 400+ games in their Pz II  or M2 Light to get that WR and WN8 in the first place.

or T67/KV-1S.

 

My favorites are russian rerolls with 1000-2000 wn8 in Churchill IIIs and T67. I always laugh at them and their "pro strats"

Yesterday on my T95E account, saw a guy in a FCM PaK platooned with another one in the Suchka getting a Crucial Contribution medal. Obviously my team lost, despite its efforts.

 

Checked his account and 11 Kolobanov's. Most played vehicle with 7K battles was exactly that. A Tomahawk missile launcher.

 

And people complain about arty.

it makes little sense to re-roll, unless you are ready to be gold-only stat-padder.

​did not say it made sense, just wondered how much money someone would spend for a set of ego stats

Sadly (for humanity) a large part of online multiplayer PvP gaming is funded by people with low self esteem who base their self worth on some meaningless statistic in a game

Technically speaking he might have ground the free XP in World of Warplanes.

I actually met one such player last year, he had high stats and a low amount of battles, all in tier 10 tanks with the exception of a Type 64, which were the only tanks he played. ...or so it seemed, I went on to ask him if he's a reroll, and he confirmed it, saying he rerolled his stats to be able to join a high-ranking clan.

 

Basically the way those sorts of rerolls work is; WG deletes your stat history up until a certain point you specify, or up until the day of the reroll, and you keep ALL your tanks, ALL your currency, EVERYTHING but the stats... I bet it doesn't come cheap though.

​any good player can read another players stats and see he is a reroll and padded so I am sure clans can account for that

Uhhh clans don't care about your lifetime stats, only your current skill, and if you're good now, the fact you were rubbish before doesn't matter, so if they see you've rerolled your stats, and your latest stats are good for them, they'll accept you, and it won't leave a bad average clan rating when that kinda player joins.

Costs a lot of money but then again, collecting premium tanks also costs a lot of money. I can't really see the appeal. What's really impressive is having yellow/green(ish) stats and playing like a boss, at least in some tanks. That'll will make your life easier, no xvm focus and good players tend to make mistakes around you since you're supposedly an easy target :)

If you're green/yellow and you're playing really good, you will eventually become blue, so that camo is temporary (unless you have like 40k battles, then its too late to change colors)
