Thin foil hat mode on just out of boredom

 

* Why in QB games (or other unicums) red players doesn't die in the very first 2 minutes? And why the enemy are coming one by one and not in bulks charging at him, like they do in my games?

* Why when unicums streaming and hoping to get the worst match up just to test something, they actually get the best possible match up?

* Why the red and orange players aren't tryharding against unicums or streamers, instead they kindly offering their side armor? Why they don't act like pinatas against me?

* Where to pay to receive their rng? :D

 

I mean if they are playing a japanese heavy, give them Malinovka with 2 scouts and rest TDs...  Next map Prokhorivka. Why they got Himmelsdorf instead? :) But when i pick arty i get Paris, Himmelsdorf and another not-arty-friendly maps. If i play slow heavy its open map. A bit frustrating.

If you're watching QB on YT you are not watching the battles that didn't go well.

That answers pretty much everything except the tinfoil question

- keep in mind that good players have a very good sense of positioning and map reading... they wont throw their tanks into situations where their chances of success are too low,  despite its not true that these players don't see bulks of enemies going to kill them, they suffer a lot from yolo and arty focus.

 

So, in short, you might feel that more enemies are trying to kill you than you see on purple players, but that's because your sense of positioning and map awareness, is not as good, you end up being in situations where you cannot leave alive, you end up doing mistakes that end up your game faster... Its not the enemies that manage to kill you because they are going in bigger numbers...

 

Its simply you that are not accessing the situation in the right away, and that leads you to suffer from it....

 

There is no cheat, there is not favorable mm, or paying to win, better players are just better players... 

 

They do more damage, they stay alive longer, they know what they should do to help their teams to win... and that's why they have in general more than 60% winrate, above 90% in their tanks gun mark and stuff like that.

Yeah, sure, he stated that in one of his videos  yet his tanks are in the purple zone. His idea of bad session differ from my idea of disastrous session. 

 

For example my tier X arty had 67% win rate at around 60 battles, with average survivability of more than 50%. At one point i got the slider  to down town and started receiving ONLY teams that at least 10 of our team die in first 2 minutes. Arty needs time to stack up damage and you can't carry if the things turn ugly from the start. It is a support vehicle. I dropped to 53% win rate and below 45% survavibility in just 24 hours. Ofcourse i had zero joy in those 2-3 minutes battles.

Yes, because overall he's still likely a far better player than you. However just because he's able to do that doesn't mean every battle is like that; as Balders said, the games you see on YouTube are likely handpicked for a particular reason to be uploaded onto YouTube.

- keep in mind 

Keep in mind that people are trying to improve and copy/paste them. Anyway i do get your point and i do agree about the map awareness and positioning.

Because when the enemy team sees you. They don't think "OMG it's catatpillar, I gotta kill him". But instead, push like normal. Vs yoloing one by one trying to kill him for bragging rights.

How then most of his tanks are in the purple zone % and mine yellowish/greenish? Does he gets 10+ consecutive roflstomps at particular tank? Doubt it.

Haha, that sounds legit!

 

Overall WoT is like blitz chess, you really have to think fast in some games because the timer and your team health pool expires.

In other you have the time to evaluate things.

Because he's better than you and can more regularly pull back those games with failteams. :facepalm:

Well, that "protection" system did not work too well at Gamescom with all the zero damage games he had one day on the new tier 8 reward tank. He clearly got more frustrated, played even worse, did more worse mistakes and blamed stream snipers for hitting him when there was an enemy light perma spotting him at the top of cliff looking right down at him all game at the end of the day. So they do have bad days, like everyone.

Not the 7-10 games dude. I seen him turning even worse scenarios, but not 1-10 in the very first 2 minutes of the battle being bottom tiered. I bet you, nor him can turn over even one roflstomp as bottom tier after such start.

He has a better crew, use the right stuff like food.

Especially not being spotted and repositioning when he his do the job.

 

The knowledge of where to go (and when to pull back) during the first minute and do the first shoot has a lot of impact on a game. It needs preparation and training - more than you and I would do. It is his JOB after all.

 

Also the more you play the more you know what to expect of the teams and how the battle will turn - and play accordingly.

Yup, after all i'm a free player who throws few bucks ocasionally, not even using premium account and barely can fund his tier X's. Refusing to use 20k consumables and going with the cheap version. Keeping small amount of gold ammo in every tank, for the sweaty times.

Most of my tonks not above 3 crew skills. Which makes me think i enter the higher tiet battles with disadvantage. Where people go more prepared. I should go back to tier 5-7.

Shush because i only heard you having hard times and failure games, never saw a single one yet. Pls upload some losses in your next stream.
