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.

 

Bulldog it's not even about stats, it about just common sense, leave a flank open get flanked moan about it... go to an area of the map where you lose 90% coverage and tactical advantage then moan about it. Moan about losing before the game even starts then commit previous statements.. Get complained at making three corridor maps.. design a two corridor map.....I don't expect people to be able to kill everything without losing a single HP but just things that are bloody obvious to do or not to do.

Still the original broom though.

 

On a more serious note, when you want to vent get a lemon and clutch it between your cheeks. Works every time combined with some deep breathing.

90% of the time when i say "next loss" when i see how the team deploys i'm right. 

It's mind boggling how one can hide in a corner leaving an open area where the enemy is going to move across any moment and totally give them map control...

On the weekends particularly, watching the teams play I'm always like:

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

 

They were already there before, they only now have the means to show it to the whole world how stupid they are.

Yup, you have 7000 games, been a player since 2011, have WN8 50 and average wins of 43%.

 

You said it.

I can only play this game when stoned, so I guess in my case the cognitive deficiency is made worse by chemical substances.  I sometimes look upon my fellow unfortunates, having rolled similar poor numbers in the game of life, and wonder what their poison is.  I suspect, without any real evidence, that in many cases they gave up on ingesting their compound of choice, but the effects of lead paint are for the most part lifelong.

As BD said already, the correlation between being dumb/stupid/having low IQ and being good at this fantastic/balanced/retarded game sure need some work. Also one interesting fact is that some of the best players of WOT are actually a bona fide jobless losers so can it!

I don't believe I have ever played the game sober.  I suppose that would be an interesting experience, and I must try it some day.  But somehow there seem to be more useful things to do when sober.

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.

Indeed....just because one is working in the field of financial markets will not make them a unicum in this game.

I did, but as WG say your account started in 2011 I'm happy to believe WG rather than your claim that you started it this year.  Useless as WG can be they don't make mistakes like that so my guess remains that you bought yours off Ebay.

I've tried it on a number of occasions, and it isn't pleasant.  Try it.  Guaranteed you won't be sober two matches later.

That's the kind of audience WG love and cater to, so of course it's full of dumb people.

 

just look around the forums, we have players with more posts than battles who can't tell their elbows from their butts.
