OK so I played fairly hard all day yesterday and managed 102 points and the mission in around 10 hours play.  I'm chuffed its done great.

 

I take a look at the leader board and see the leader has 558 stamps - immediately demoralised and decide pursuing this completion is pointless.

(and I'm not crying cos I never win anything anyway - my eyes are all cried out from life).

 

But:  2 stamps for first top ten then 1 for rest - lets say 500 top ten battles minimum to get 558 stamps - starting from 1100 CET 23/3 to whenever - I checked the board at like 0200 CET the next day after I had completed my marathon it was ~500 then.

 

So this guy on top of the leader board with 558 stamps has 667 battles for the previous 7 days as per WOT life has ~10k overall,  hmm I say that's a hard grind. Oh and he joined his clan the 22/3.

I just messaged him at 1030 CET 24/3 asking how he was doing, his last battle is listed as 1028 CET 24/3 and he hasn't done a battle since.  So that's either I scared him off or that's a full 24hrs play.

 

So ok people can play for 24hrs if they really want to win, he is not the only one there is also, 486, 435, all the way down to ~150 at position 251.  My 102 stamps just isn't going to cut it.

 

Say 24 hours at 558 is approx. 23 battles per hour - at best I get 10 maybe 12 if I'm lucky (I wish my reserves worked that well)

 

So is it a hard grind, a bug, a cheat, dual/multiple users on account??  I don't know, I bet WG would though....

 

I'm going to check the board for the next few days see if this continues, (for the lols you understand)

 

Glad WG has put up a prize for this - will be interested who wins.............................................NOT!!

don't waste your time on the forum, you've probably wasted another 4 stamps writing that post

He probably YOLOs low tier games in an autoloader. YOLO, get one mag off. Die. Next tank...repeat.

 

You can probably do 30 games an hour that way.

LOL -- me again...

 

Just when you think this guy must be sleeping after yesterdays haul of 558 stamps in one day, his summary shows last battle now 1126 CET 24/3 - so he is off again on a rampage.

 

Oh and he has 594 stamps now, will he make 1000 stamps by end of day 2??  -- Does his day actually end??? -- He must really want this laptop...

 

OK off for some battles myself - for the cluster as we do...

 

CET might be UTC but 24 hours is the same whenever it starts.....

Hes playing 2 tier battles only, its like 1 minute battle. You are yolo pushing doing 100 dmg to be in a top 10 and dying, next battle. And repeat that 24/7

yeah I was thinking could be a bot - but not real sure how bots work

 

assuming bots - let you select a bank of tanks (cos your going to have say 5 or 6 tanks in battle at a time here),

 

So you then set them going into battle, and they just keep joining battles, then they hit escape when dead, rinse and repeat with the next banker tank????

 

The Bot itself is so good you can set parameters on its bottyness - ie. light tank do this td do this etc right from the get go of the battle they spot they aim they shoot they move they reload rinse and repeat????

 

These Bots seem pretty smart, but I guess it is 2018 programming.

 

Maybe if WG were into 2018 style programming they could programme the computer to pick 30 tanks for a battle - then within those 30 tanks, where possible swap tanks across the teams to make it balanced based on the players WG Rating.

 

But then that would look like skill based MM wouldn't it and we don't want that....

Even if it's top 10 only. If his yolo is effective enough. It can actually work. And he will farm a ton a day with it. Since you don't even have to win. If you had to win to, I'm sure he would not even have 150.

​I do actually, so should WG and so should you.

 

Seems like a low tier Auto Botting programme is how it is done,  I'm assuming this is against some rules??

No, yoloing is not. As that's how they do it. Yolo and die in 30 seconds. Go to the next game and do it again. You get top ten on most of them if you lose anyway if you get a small ammount of spotting assist, or even by first spot bonuses alone. As you don't have to win to get the stamps. As this is what happens when everyone cries about missions having "win" as a requirement. Farming gets even easier.

No, the answer has already been given to you. You're just obviously struggling with reading.

 

Again, nobody cares.

Why? because you can spam low tier games and get stamps easy?

 

Everone can do that...don't see how it's a "flaw"

 

This is what happens when "Steve the IS-7 driver" complains he has to win to get his mission done.

because its an exploit, agreed its a legal one, but the competition wasnt designed to be played like that.

 

It would be very easy to fix as well if WG had any brains, `only 1 stamp collecting battle can be active at any one time`.

I need some tier 2 tanks and ill get the family round to click buttons for me while I sleep, ill catch this b'stard up...

 

No I wont cos I really don't care, or at least I'm told I shouldn't care cos no one else does....... (but I cant resist caring sorry, I'm just a really loving and caring person)

 

I care so much I don't even have a forum icon.....
