I enjoy playing all tiers from 5-10. BUT how far down in tiers can I go before it's considered to be sealclubbing? Is it mainly the number of battles I have or is it the skill level that determines wether it's sealclubbing or not?

Take myself as an example: I have 49k battles and a wn8 of 1273. Is it sealclubbing if I play tier 5? Tier 4? Where's do you think the limit is?

This question was asked on the forum about a month ago.

 

My answer remains the same. As soon as you get off the boat with the club in your hand

I've often wondered that.  I got the T40 yank TD (tier 4), I love it and want to get full skills and perks on it.

 

Obliviously, the more I play it, the better it and myself become putting newer players at a disadvantage.

if you have 50k battles and go play tier1:

 

If you win: you do seal clubbing

if you lose, you are a noob

 

if you dont care - you enjoy

If you're still having fun in a tier 3 tank, which i highly doubt, after almost 50k battles then enjoy your game!

It's a great fun little thing....at least by T4 players should have an idea of the game. As Slyspy says....carry on!

I think it is entirely up to you... I enjoy playing low tier games more than T9 and T10 games (they are usually much shorter and not full of heavy tanks rocking backwards and forwards bouncing shells off each other, which to me is tedium in the extreme)

My favourite T2 tank is the PanzerJager 1, and at T3 it's the FCM36 Pak40, both these are fairly slow turretless, lightly armoured TD's with good guns... so I sit at the back and usually come in the top 2 or 3 of the team on XP.

Is it seal clubbing ? well I don't go in a platoon, and I check the players at the beginning of the game and only once have I been the one who has the highest total games played... and of course in turretless, lightly armoured TD's if two enemies come at you at once you are dead, so you can't carry a game by yourself unless the enemies come at you one by one by one
(okay I do have a 67% WR in the PzJag1, but that's by the by ! ! ! )

 

(I am somewhat disappointed that you can't drop maps below T4 because if I could just play the PZJag1 on Abbey and Mines I would have an even higher WR in it !)

If WarGaming renames you to "Uncle Smoky", you might be sealclubbing. :teethhappy:

This, really. It's mostly a matter of personal attitude, if all you do is stick to low tiers 'cause you know you're facing inexperienced people, it's sealclubbing. If you simply play tanks you enjoy, it's not. The latter implies that you'll at least be trying out other tanks as you progress upwards, so you'd generally end up not playing low tiers only. So that's an indicator to use I guess.

I've passed Tier IV, by a tad, and still have no clue :P

sealclubbing is when you play more than 2 battles in a row with same tank :trollface:

Famous seal-clubbers are Skill4ltu, Circon, Daki, QB, Marty and the list goes on for various reasons:

1° They play more than me, thus being better trained

2° They are younger than me, thus having better reflexes

3° They are naturally skilled at video games

4° They use premium consumables

5° They have 6 skills crews

6° They know every map like the bottom of their pockets

7° They don't play craptanks with fresh crews

8° I probably forgot something, insert anything you like.

 

So, yeah, when playing against me, a super-unicum is seal-clubbing.

 

Disgusting.

It's really hard to say and I'm not too hasty to use that word to anyone. Besides I don't use any addon that would show me the amount of games or experience of my opponents anyway. 

 

I play some low tiers when I feel like it. It's pretty rare though and it's mostly to do with training a new crew for some tank since I'd rather play without sixth sense below tier7 than above. And occasionally on 5x weekends if I need something like bia on some tank I might get a win for all my prems or something like that. 

 

I don't know if it's sealclubbing and I don't honestly care what some opponents I kill might feel about it.

T40 is a very effective tank for grinding some missions and marathons that come up with tier IV min.

 

Oh and it's a lot of fun carrying those tier 6s.

Don't worry about it. Some people play a lot of low tiers because they play on a standard account. Some enjoy the more frantic and less predictable gameplay. I've seen many reasons. You can also go back to lower tiers to learn new skills if you go to higher skills and have problems.

 

Sensible players tend to just look at your last 1000 games anyway. So if it did matter to you, and you have a lot of games, it would change quickly. I'd suggest not worrying.
