What a great idea.  So many people complain about lack of balance and the whole 'unfairness' of how they don't get to win every match they play - how about introducing a handicap for the better players, so we're all on a level playing field?  I was thinking of some sort of lag, progressively increasing as the WN8 goes up.  

 

That way, the tomato players wouldn't have their feelings hurt and the purples could boast about the level of lag they have to endure, rather than actually worrying about how well they play.

I think it's a good idea, something like 1s delay for every WN8 higher than the lowest WN8 player in the game?

Don't know about lag, but all unicums should be made to drive around in fluorescent purple tanks, and display a big "arty shoot here" flag at all times.

Quality of this thread is about 50 wn8..

 

Love the way you shaded in the green on your wn8. The correct wn8 values would have you orange.

And I love the way you missed the joke and decided to get snitty about my poor play.  Awesome grownupness.

PS WTF is 'shaded in the green' even supposed to mean?

And this helps you when you don't see them since they have better map awareness then you how? As the only thing this would do was to force them to play bush sniper tanks, not brawlers.

This game has a handicapping system. Officially it is called "RNG".

So, you want to create a game where everybody sucks equally?

That's progress! Let's adopt the Social Justice Warrior approach for WoT: "You suck? Are you not the brightest? Is not your fault, don't try to improve! We'll drag everyone who tries down to mediocrity!"  :izmena:
