Seems to me that WoT's a is a purely male dominated game, I can count on one hand the amount of times I have met a female player in battle, would having more women balance the game?

Why would women be interested in general  that much in a tank game. I know a few female players who play the game but as a rule "tanks" is a very male dominated area in general. Not that it makes any difference people play what they like. My daughter loves Sims 4 and wouldn't be seen dead playing WOT.  According to her "Tanks is for losers Daddy why don't you play Witcher 3 anymore?" Although I'm slowly getting into Russian Fishing 4 lately more that WOT (addiction might at last be beaten) so I dread to imagine what she will say about a game where you do nothing for 10 minutes at a time then get excited by ripples on the water.

Doubt it, while there's several women playing this game, more then you'd think (know a few), tanks is still a subject that mainly attracts the male portion of gamers. 

 

Edit; can I say that you daughter has a good eye on games Signal? (Albeit her delivery can use some work :)) Witcher III is indeed a great game. Albeir the only sims game with a 4 I play is Sim City. 4

Well her delivery has always been the same, she was 5 when I picked up a new Van from work (they always try to force me to get a company car for some reason, I prefer a van) so I drive to work with the nipper in tow pick up the van drive out of the estate and the first thing she says is " Ohhh Daddy this is a nice van, when you die can I have it?".. age 5 for christ sakes, look up "mercenary" in the dictionary and there's a picture of her next to it.

And how do you know who is behind the screen?
Do you want every battle to start with somebody saying "hi, I'm a girl" in chat so then you can act like a horny dog and bother her after battle?

More chance to get rekt by a girl? 

 

But fair answer, I do not know. Women aren't all that different from men when playing games. They can be as skilled & savage as any player. (or as unskilled & noobish, it does go both ways)

Yeah, it's that glass ceiling at tier4 that prevents them from enjoying the game.

 

All in all, I think it's a small percent of gamers that are women. Even back in my WoW days it was under 5% that I knew of.

One liner opener.

I'd file this thread as a cheap trolling/ attention grab attempt. :mellow:

Be more worried as she will be picking your rest home. You will probably be an exclusive TD player by then though, only interested in finding a decent bush on the redline and getting 2 shots off... you'll deserve everything you get :)

Want to know why you rarely see female players in WoT? Guys play the game of tanks on computers....girls play the game in real tanks.  :trollface:

This, really. I know two women who play this game (or have at least played it as seriously as me), they don't advertise it. A lot of women I've met online in my two decades of gaming tend to either not advertise it or even actively hide it, 'cause some males just get weird around them.

How would you know if a player is female?  And why does it concern you?  Are you as creepy as you are bad at this game?

plus, a lot of gamers can't stand when they get fragged by a girl (even if it's a guy claiming to be of opposite sex)

I'm willing to bet you have faced more then you think. Not everyone has a girly name. And half of those that use such names are probably males anyway. I know of a fair few, the FB group I'm in for local players is about 33% female, one of them in the mid 40's. That and when you go on Twitch in the late or early hours. Half the RU streamers are females some days. 

 

Late Edit: phone auto correct typo I just noticed.

In what manner would women balance the game compared to the player base now?

 

There is no need to go on a recruitment drive for the latest fashionable gender assignment player type.

 

If they are interested in tanks and shooting pixel versions of them, then that is it.

 

Can the world please stop with this BS snowflake crap please.
