Came back to the game, to do the marathon, which I finished today. Ooh, the horror...the horror...

I just remembered all the reasons why the Edited I stopped playing this game, and to a surprise probably to everyone, I won't start hatting on WG, for all the obvious reasons (+/-2 MM, premium ammo spam, corridor META, imbalance and poor decision making in term of tanks, arty focus and so on), but the main reason is: 

Playerbase,

complete Edited in top tier tanks, complete clueless on how to position their tanks, for what are the areas to fight for, what their tanks role and how to make effective use of their vehicle, sui-scouting (it is still a thing apparently), Edited   

Thank you people and WG for constantly testing my mental health every Edited   time I press the Battle button, really thank you.

Also thanks for the free premium tank, see you in a few months, after I finish my sessions with my therapist, if I'm still in the mood to play again this pure frustration called high tiers.

 

 

 

 

ps. sorry for the rant, just had to QQ a bit to release some steam.

Not much you can do about the playerbase it is what it is. But very often when you as a green player like myself have one of those epic moments and we turn a loss into victory 

it might be because the enemies you killed was pretty bad player. This works both ways.

 

And yes i raged and got my chatbans myself so im not inocent.

Hang on.

 

Lets get this right.

 

You came back to a game you don't like to get a free tank which you can only use in the game which you don't like.

 

Why?

To offer some variety from all the narcissistic kid comments above:

yea, world of tanks forum is a place to run from in terms of expecting a conversation. Just, again, people that really get off on the delusion of intellectual superiority and completely missing the skill of self-reflecting their behavior.

Why do you care how other players play? Why can't you just ignore them and play your own game? 

Clueless top tier tanks are just a free farm for you. You should be happy about that.

I'd love to ignore them and continue with my own game, the problem is the harrasing and teamkilling if you're playing the light tank smartly.

If you thought this thread was going to be a conversation, you didn't read the OP very well, which if you had intended to have a conversation is the very first thing you ought to do. If you don't, you're just getting on a soapbox. Have fun self-reflecting.

One of the great mysteries of this Universe is how it's always OTHER people that have a delusion of intellectual superiority. :teethhappy:

I never claimed I disliked the game.

I do like the game, the point is the levels of frustration I got trying to play again.

You enjoy being frustrated?  Hey, everyone is different.

I enjoy playing tanks, I could go without the frustration though.

Translation: Hating the players, not the game.

 

I know the feel.

 

Not caring about missions or certain milestones while playing helps me stay calm, also playing music louder than the game itself (quiet game) draws the attention away enough to keep me focused, yet not care what happens cuz' I'm jammin' to my favorite tunes.

 

Try it out at least.

Yeh well marathons, especially ones with an element that offers higher tier play a 'quicker' route is always going to bring more casuals into the game and push them into tiers where they clearly have no clue what they are doing. At in some people attempt these marathons basically by yoloing and hoping they get the XP/damage requirements, overall what you get is a horrible gameplay experience.
