Well, guys, I'm almost there.  Now at 52.49% win rate and that 53% win rate is almost, very nearly, within my grasp.

I was so expecting a [edited]joke in the original post.

 

Edit: what the heck, the forum automatically edits out the perfectly proper English word for male genitalia as it is referenced by in biology/medicine? I wasn't aware you could be more uptight about the language than the British themselves.

Foreigners can never find quite the correct expression for the moment, and are usually over or under-dressed.

 

It's sad, but that's the way it is.

 

Anyway, let us have no more of these attempts to derail the thread which is about gameplay and, more specifically, my own genius at playing tanks.

 

About 90% wins today, mostly at Tier 8.   A less naturally modest person than myself, always inclined to hide lights under bushels, might take this as a sign of incipient genius.

 

But no doubt it is just the rigged MM.

I am not worthy.  However it is funny to see all the endless whines about rigged MM, gold ammo, PTW, arty, OP premiums etc etc when all you need to get adequate results with Coarse Tanker level skills is a modicum of research and some very basic ability, even with a bottle of whisky inside you.
 

OMG I did it. 52.5% wins.

 

My cup runneth over.

 

Some persons might say that my last game of a minute ago was unfair and unkind, but I say let God sort them out.

 

Victory!

I feel cheated, I thought this was about Bulldog getting the Version 4.

I can safely predict that in the unlikely event I ever got a v 4 I would get a 35% win rate in it.

That will probably not happen until the tank is forgotten about and is an unpolished gem like the D.W

On current performance your 52% overall converts to 62% in the Bobject.

Doesn't every bob (im a bob) get a 56 % WR in the Bobject tho?

 

I don't own it.  But see a lot of 46 % players carrying games.

That may well be right.  I have been having some modest success also in the widely despised TOG 2, including killing some very annoyed OIs.

Nah, back then it was actually called "intercourse".

More seriously, it does amaze me that we have had six years of endless forum whining about the game when it is open even to the meanest intellect such as myself to have fun in it and even achieve some modest degree of mediocrity.

*dons tinfoil hat*

The only reason your winrate's going up is because all the skilled players are massively leaving and WoT is dying! We need... what's that guy's name again? Jungles?

I would have to agree, perhaps surprisingly, as evinced in a letter written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning during her honeymoon: 'After two months of uninterrupted intercourse he loves me better every day... and my health improves too'.

I think they are frittering - yes, I say frittering - away their time on FrontLine, leaving the field wide open on Random to us noobs.

I envisage her as an AT-15A

 

What's become of Waring
Since he gave us all the slip,
Chose land-travel or seafaring,
Boots and chest or staff and scrip,
Rather than pace up and down
Any longer London town?
