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.

 

This is shocking news indeed.

How are their WRs compared to yours?

With your 52% win rate I think we can reasonably assume that you are very slightly above average intelligence, maybe IQ 105?

He wins less than someone who can't tell his elbow from his butt, you might be setting the bar a bit high. How I'm even able to type on a computer with my WR is a mystery we can get into at a later time.

Im of atleast average intelligence IRL, but I do play WoT like an idiot. Mostly it's because I dont know any of the finer points of the game yet. For instance, I dont have the faintest idea of when a should be covered or when it's safe to leave it unattended.

 

There are also people who end up playing like idiots because they use completely different chains of logic. I was just playing with a friend who's new to the game, and he doesnt yet understand why people rush to kill the enemy team instead of just bunching up at the flag and capping as soon as possible,

I had always assumed that you had your wife do the typing.

One thinks they may be finding you amusing instead. I could obviously be wrong.

My wife thinks I'm an idiot for playing pixel tanks. As she's never wrong, anything I achieve in the game won't change that view I'm sure.

I'm sure that anyone trying to measure intelligence based on ability to play a game must be pretty dumb...

He appears to have trouble constructing sentences in a proper manner which denotes a poor education, therefore he must mean that people who post a lot not only have a better WR that him, but also have a better education and perhaps a higher level of intelligence.

Where did I mention measuring all intelligence types when I specifically said "in this game" Show me a firewall I'm the man, show me a car engine I haven't got the foggiest.

The answer to this varies on what kind of troglodyte you specifically refer to. If we look at the literal meaning of the world "Troglodyte" one can primarily assume they venture forth from the caves that they live in. The interesting question is, which caves?

 

The origin of the word is found in Greek, and I am sure there are caves in Greece that potentially contained Troglodytes. The 1st century BC Greek citizen Strabo, who produced the Geographica, mentions "a tribe of Troglodytae living along with the Crobyzi in Scythia Minor, near the Ister (Danube) and the Greek colonies of Callatis and Tomis." 

If we consider the generic Dungeons and Dragons race, we find that the Troglodyte has a distinct reptilian look, while they could be found anywhere underground they seem to prefer warmer climates. This supports references to Troglodytae living in Africa at the coast of the Red Sea, which tends to have the required warmer climates. Not that these are the Dungeons and Dragons variant, and apparently their languages sounded like "the screeching of bats". This is odd to say the least as I'd typically associate these sounds with XVM-stat whiners and I doubt this was OP's intended reference, as whining occurs at all levels of capability.

 

Last but not least there is the Homo sapiens troglodytes, a subspecies of homo sapiens which has since its classification by Carl Linnaeus in the 18th century been dismissed as cryptozoology. It is important not to confuse H. s. troglodytes with H. troglodytes, which is a species of scorpion from southern Africa. Additionally it is important not to confuse H. s. troglodytes or H. troglodytes with P. troglodytes, which is the common chimpansee. Of special note is the Troglodytes as a type of bird, a wren to be exact, of which most species can be found in Mexico and northern South America, but there is a Eurasian wren as well. Quite frankly these birds seem to live everywhere.

 

It's amazing what you can Google if you want a serious answer to a question.

Game1
Player1: "did you read the news on the portal, about the code?"
(silence)

 

Game2
Player1: "let's attack the left flank."
(silence, then player7 suicides in the middle)

 

Game3
Player1: "I'm drunk, sorry"
Player2: "me too"
Player3: "completely wasted"
CircleOfSorrow: "utterly stoned"
player5: "I'm going to tell your mothers that you spoiled my WN8!"
player6: "no more sprouts to smoke..."
(then player7 suicides in the middle)
player5: "noobs"

 

WoT is a great game. You really miss it when you're on a break.

Sometimes I feel that the entire balance department is on my games... devs testing their vision for the game.

See you all soon on the battlefield. Whisky on Tanks.

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

 

It's really interesting that you actually except everyone around you to be on the same level as you. How many people have an IQ below the average and just some random information, there are quite a few people with an IQ of 80 and they live their lives too. It's for sure NOT a small portion of the populace of our world.
