So where is the fun in playing them? We payed money for them.. Good money and all i personally get is t10 battles.

Prem ammo is required to be able to fight t10 tanks. You might as well sell me a car without an engine. Because this is just pure [edited].

I know its WG at its best but they have to realize and see what im seeying.. A dramatic drop in players who are done with the shameless moneygrabbing and poor gameplay.

Ive returned after not playing for two years and all is have seen so far is bad game management and giving all the bobs a "fair" chance in this current retarded meta.

If you are driving a tier VIII then there will be at most 3 tier X on the other team.  How about simply not trying to fight them solo?

But they changed it for you so that nearly half the enemy team are your tier, just like you whined for.  You can't have that and be top tier most of the time.

No it isn't.

Leave the higher tiers you can't pen then keep tracking them and let your T10's do the damage or spam them with HE. HE won't pen but damages crew and equipment which makes them less of a threat to your T10's.

 

If you end up facing T10's on your own then you've done it wrong.

 

When I'm farming credits I rotate through My T34, Fv4202 and WZ-111. I don't use gold in any

My problem with Prem tanks is the following.. for most t8 prem tanks we need a mode like frontline to be able to enjoy the tanks.

Thats not what ive payed money for.

Gimme fun with normal battle's as well.. thats all

OP, people are giving you good tips and suggestions and you are responding in a snide manner. Did you open this thread to whine and whinge?

or spam them with HE. HE won't pen but damages crew and equipment which makes them less of a threat to your T10's. spamming HE can only work in SOME cases. I've done it several times against tanks like Pz.Kpfw VII, E100 and Type Heavy, but they do nothing against them. Only the huge caliber guns from td's and some heavies can do reasonable damage to extremely armored tanks, or hull down monsters.

 

If you end up facing T10's on your own then you've done it wrong. like I said earlier: if you have dumb players on top, no chance. you can't rely on your team to win. if you're lucky people help you and show some teamplay, but don't count on it.

Lose like a man.

 

It's a team game, a lot of people may disagree but if your team fails then that's unfortunate, but you get the good teams as often as the bad ones (give or take your own skill that is).

I think you should have checked the description before you paid your money.

This is no about just 1 opinion, but about what you may expect when paying real money for a game. Yes, there are in my opinion a lot of stupid players who invested more then hundreds of Dollars/Euro's on this game, but that's a different subject.

If you have stupid players in your top tiers  then you in a T8 ain't going to win the match so why waste credits spamming premium ammo?

 

Spamming HE damages crew and equipment even if the tank doesn't loose HP's. I had a Maus rage at me because I kept spamming his turret with HE in my WZ-111 and every shot injured a crewman or damaged something even though the WZ's HE only has 61mm pen.

 

Dumb players are a fact of life, get over it.

If you play a Tier 8 premium tank at the moment, you have to adapt to the recent matchmaking. Recently I play Lowe and the WZ TD in Tier 8 and its absolutely fine to fight Tier 10 with them. Most of the games u might not be able to carry, but it is ok for gaining credits.

It all depends of your tank : I have the t26e5 and the sta-2 and even with tiers X I feel ok.

Luckily because it happens 90% of the time ...

It's a bit odd that someone with your stats seem oblivious to the fact that it shouldn't be commonplace for 1 tank to fight off 10 enemy tanks, more or less alone, just because he wants to win in a team game.

 

Your next move would be to do your best and take the loss as a man.

Spamming HE damages crew and equipment even if the tank doesn't loose HP's. You're probably lucky, because I've done the same with 122mm guns and 0 damage, not even critical.

I had a Maus rage at me because I kept spamming his turret with HE in my WZ-111 and every shot injured really lucky then if it happened on EVERY shot, something called RNG.

a crewman or damaged something even though the WZ's HE only has 61mm pen. pen has nothing to do with it. The gun I used has more pen on HE.

 

Dumb players are a fact of life, get over it. good way to end a dumb post. good way to show how ignorant you act.

Not sure why it makes me act ignorant.?

 

Even the best players can get teams where the top tiers are dumb and though they may get to do a lot of damage it's unlikely they'll win the game on their own. There's just as much chance that all the dumb players are on the enemy team, though nobody seems to come on the forums and complain about bad enemy teams.

 

If T8's could take on T10's on one to one then what would be the point of grinding to T10?  In fact why stop at T8, some T1's have problems penning T2's (and so on and so on) so maybe WG should do away with tiers and we all play the same tank. That way the snowflakes wont cry because their tanks can't pen higher tier tanks.

and though they may get to do a lot of damage it's unlikely they'll win the game on their own that depends on if they have enough time to do the needed damage

There's just as much chance that all the dumb players are on the enemy team, though nobody seems to come on the forums and complain about bad enemy teams. nobody comes on the forum and complains about it? you lived under a rock? there are dozens of topics about this from over the years where people did so. and if not, still makes no difference on the problem. it still exists.

That way the snowflakes wont cry because their tanks can't pen higher tier tanks. some tier 8 can outplay tier 10's because of more dpm, and/or better maneuverability etc. there is no point on grinding to tier 10. it's just a different tank, not better in particular.
