At the moment I have 16 players blocked on chat. All of them abused me for one reason or other often telling me to delete the game because I'm useless. Some even go to the trouble of checking my stats and making fun of me. 

 

Cyber bullying really not that I'm bothered. I simply point out that it's a game I play on my phone involving cartoon tanks. Great fun but not real life. 

 

Yet apparently they take it terribly seriously.

Now I'm fine playing it seriously and am in awe of the tank aces. I'm actually a tank buff. But some people don't get it. I know my Sherman from Mark IV. Some of the abuse I get comes from people who don't get the concept of tank destroyers. The SU100 is not for a knife fight. But I get abused for not taking on mediums.

Today some nitwit called reptile had a go at everyone so I suggested reporting him. It worked and boy was he peed. So I got five abusive message. Really amusing. He needs to get a life. 

 

Yes I'm crap at the game. But I like it even though I'm convinced that the fact that I never spent a red cent on the game means I get killed first far too often for it to be a coincidence. Even in the middle of a gang of tanks. 

 

Some algorithm ha ha. 

 

Anyone else think people take it to seriously. 

 

And no I will not delete the game lol

I've been playing on my Nokia for years without any problems.  Maybe you need a better phone?

Samsung S8? Not exactly state of the art. Great graphics. When I blow up it's pretty good.

Are you sure you're on the right forum? Playing on your phone sounds like WoT Blitz, this is the forum for the PC version of the game.

 

I thought I didn't recognise the description of some players, we're a beacon of light and love in a world of murky toxicity. :hiding:

Well I linked from my phone. Thought it was blitz. Oops yes indeed you are a beacon of light and love in the world. I also play on PC  and am equally terrible but only on blitz are people nasty about it.

If you play against other players on your phone, can you call them afterwards to insult or is it just boring text messages like us PC nerds have?

Should buy yourself a tier 8 prem & jump in the deep end to see just how light & lovely our community is here on PC.

This is a very complex game. Unless you always want to be a complete loser, then there's a lot to learn. Learning takes effort and it's nice when effort is rewarded. 

 

So when your entire team (and this DID happen to me recently) your ENTIRE team is made up of plonkers with negative win rates- at least three or four as low as 43-45%- and you are somehow left to try and take down the entire enemy team on your own, it does get incredibly frustrating.

It takes no effort to point your gun and frontal armour towards the enemy. Yet these sub 45% players still manage to do everything wrong. Still waiting for WG to implement bots because they are more competent that a lot of the WoT playerbase.

 

Bad players are bad enough but its even worse when they suck horribly at tier 10. Arty and HE slinging FV4005s/Type 5s doing 0 damage is unforgivable. One must be heavily mentally afflicted to pull off that.

Your 1st mistake was playing mobile game. As far as PC version of WOT goes - git gut.

Could this thread be entitled "People without any sense of humour"?

In PC version you can disable teamchat, try that. No idea if its an option in Blitz. Its like this in every game and has always been, and will probably always be. If you dont understand why on your own i dont think we can explain it even if we tried. Ppl want to win, if they dont they need to blame someone or something. The dude with 50k+ games and still doesnt know how to play a [edited]HT or whatever usally gets the blame, and more often then not deserves it. Get used to it, find ways to ignore it, or stop playing.

Yes really. I do think it's funny how bothered they get.

Unfortunately my most ready access is blitz. Often a few minutes of spare time on the phone. On PC it's more serious and interesting. Off to the blitz forum for me.

I lay awake at night wondering how many keyboards have been smashed up due to WOT. I don't stay awake long though because I have a comfy bed as well as a chair :B
