Have you ever participated in puplic road traffic? How come you expected people would be less dumb in an online game?

Tbh I despair for the human race in general, this game makes most people positively Einstein like out in the real world.

Wel, lets put it like this:

If 90% of the people on the third planet from the stellar object we call the sun that we call earth are dumb.

Then it is likely that 90% of that group of people, which happen to play a game called World of Tanks, are also dumb.

They originate from within your bias, explained adequately by Dunning & Kruger.

Most people are dumb.  A lot of people are very dumb.  A lot of the dumb and very dumb people are also not very well educated.  Half the population is 100 IQ or below and 100 isn't exactly smart.

 

In financial markets, and some other fields, 130 IQ is pretty much the starting point, so if you can't hit that, find something else to do.

 

By contrast, it's only on the internet (or maybe in a pub) that you get the benefit of coming across dumb and dumber.

 

On the other hand this is a game that repays other things like fast reflexes and instincts, so Mr Dumb and Mr Dumber may very well get much better results than Mr Genius.

Oh I realise compared to some people in the world I'm very average myself but we are talking simple stuff here not Quantum Mechanics or of that ilk.

Think of the average person. Then remember that half of the human race is less intelligent than that.

Also not doing something is easier than doing it. That includes thinking

Signal, there is a lot of 60+% WR players who deny humanity to <60% WR players. Think about it

True, it is not quantum mechanics, but then again most players are not here doing their thing thinking their IQ will be judged, they are here to entertain themselves, which yields some very peculiar outcomes.

I shall endeavour to improve my abysmal win rate at high tiers but after 7 years of trying I think it is unlikely.

 

The correlation between being good or bad at the game and intelligence is an interesting theory, but I think more work is needed there.

Only on the internet, Or if you suddenly get a hankering for sub-par burger and chips. 

 

They are not so lucky here, a twitch shooter will suit good hand eye coordination and reactions better than WOT, which while being petty far from chess, requires some brainpower to play well

One would have thought so, but having read some posts on the forum by skilled players whose logical ability seems to be about on the level of a gerbil I am not so sure.
