I'm not sure is this the correct section, if it's not, please Admins move the topic to the correct section.

WG team, can you fix this problem with Ebay players? I know clearly that many of us (players) meet this "old" players with bought accounts from Ebay. Even now my last game in our team we've got AMX 13 75 and all the game those "player" just look around the map and have only 2 shots made with 0 dmg. Why we need to play with this "players"? It's easy to determine which account was sold - just check the date when email address is changed.

How is this an "ebay player"? I mean, everyone can have a crap game. Add to that that the account is not great to begin with. If you'd do your research before throwing accusations around you'd see that nothing much changed for this account...

I had a battle where I fired once and missed in my Borsig the other day because it was steamroll and the tiny lawnmower engine it has couldn't keep up.

 

Sop obsessing over other people and play your own game.

The only guaranteed way of stopping it is to deal with the problem at the source, aka the bay of e.

 

A similar topic at the weekend led to my perusing the bay of e out of curiosity and I was shocked by how many listings there are, and the price tags attached to them. :amazed:

Ebay player?  Or someone who got disconnected?  How can you possibly tell the difference, unless you actually sold him the account.

You will also be shocked by how many get reclaimed via WG support after they are sold.  Beware scammers.

Not just Ebay, here a bunch of these sites sell accounts.

 

I've always been facinated at how people buy them, (back in the day I saw a Jedi Account from SWG sold for £1500)  look where that game is now.

I'm guessing Quickyjingleshavoc has said something recently.

To be fair, I was accused of having an Ebay account a few years ago.

 

I was doing reasonably well, then played arty exclusively. My win-rate, and associated stats, plummeted.

Logging into battles, just to counter arty was my 'thing'. And ignoring all other considerations. I was playing like a bellend.

 

I still play like a bellend, but in different tanks now. :teethhappy:

The most common fallacy is the post hoc fallacy.  Drawing a false conclusion from a premise.  A guy is a bad player, therefore, he is an eBay player.  If evidence for anything else is equally compelling then the deduction is flawed.  Given you know nothing but that single game and some cherry-picked statistics You cannot possibly draw this conclusion.

I'm going to close this thread as this will go nowhere productive.
