I think it's a good idea for new players to have the choice of wearing some sort of a newbie badge, and lets say they have the right to wear it untill 5k battles, when they have to spread their wings and become like the rest of us :o 

 

This is a good thing because people would be more understanding, he isn't bad he is just new. It would take out brunt of the toxicity the newbie might endure as well. It would also benefit the rest of the players since they'd know how much they can count on the guy, and maybe to keep an eye and help him if he gets into trouble, well if he doesn't get himself into too much trouble :)

Id like this so i can target the new players and get easy damage :hiding:

 

On a serious note, If anything like this were to be implemented. 5K battles is far to high, I'd say around 1k or until they reach tier 5/6. By that point they should understand the basics and be on the same level as 99% of the player base it seems..

Yeah, how about a badge in the shape of a target?

Maybe only your own team can see it

I'd want a newbie badge. I'd take any badge right now. Should look good next to my Super Conqueror in the tank list. 

 

/s

 

A newbie badge would just invite farming and rushing. Either that or deception (the "I'm actually a unicum reroll so come at me bruh" types). Seeing the average level intelligence of WoT players, its probably not a good idea to give them more windows to lick. Good idea fundamentally, even if its optional, but it doesn't work in the current "damage > win" meta.

I agree with the sentiment but I suspect as players get told to stop playing because they have terrible WN8 or win rate, giving them a badge to announce it to everyone who's not using XVM isn't going to change that.

XVM stats as the game loads tells you how many games the players have had.

In its core, it is an interesting idea but in practice not so much. A new wave od toxicity can arise from it towards the new players that would use such a thing. And another thing. Just the idea of using a thing like this indicates that WG is doing something really badly. Like... Why would your game need a noob mark? Is it that much noob unfriendly ? That can send some really bad vibes to people who are thinking about joining the game. It would for me anyway.
