... just to let you know: The gaming experience is even worse than on weekends. 7 defeats in a row while being bottom tier all the time and still being the best player on my team by far. I wanted to have a nice tank-christmas today. But with these pathetic und unbalanced teams (skill- and tankwise) all the enjoyment is melting away like snow in the early morning sun.

It absolutely seems that way. The real problem is, that these teams are so god damn bad, they are un-carry-able. After 2 minutes my team already lost nearly half of its tanks and the game ends 3:15, 5:15 or 8:15 in under 5 minutes. Not one close game that reaches the 10 minute mark like in the old days.

When struck by a thunderbolt it is unnecessary to consult the Book of Dates as to the precise meaning of the omen.

Remember there are people on the other side thinking the same.

It helps to type in some strategy advice at the beginning. It's Christmas, loads of new players are playing, nothing you can do about it.

Treat them as easy prey to go looking for. You just need to change your approach.

I absolutely see your point, it just seems they prey is always on my team and not on the enemy's side. 13 battles and only 5 victories today.

OP low tier tanks with good crews work for me.

No, Trump maybe getting 2nd impeachment, fires in Austalia, a bus of people dying in Indonesia...those are news, if you prefer we talk on wot forums about news.

 

As for OP, I feel the same, biggest problem I notices is load of players with low game numbers in high tiers. Seeing somebody with 1016 games, and 2 tieer X tansk...just made me turn off wot for 3 days now.

You're welcome. :(

 

I feel bad for playing after having been away for months and starting a new line with a stock tank and 90% crew. After my first battle I received an in-garage message from a TD player on my team who tried to TK me for not spotting because he doesn't know how binos work, so at least I know the loss wasn't completely my fault in that case.

The forum rules are not my concern, in fact I find sticking to rules a limitation of what has to be done and said. This is a matter that has to be brought to attention every single day again. And critic as per definition does not have to be constructive, it simply has to point out the problem.

I see no problem, arty is not able to "carry" a team anyways.

a lot of people might argue it's good that you lost, since you played artillery.

 

I just wish everyone reading this a happy christmas.

Partial solution:

Field your biggest Alpha tonks and go for max credits as compensation

 

I'm up to +41% atm

Is this a bad troll attempt?

 

You're here complaining about teams yet you're playing Arty and complaining you can't carry?

 

I smells some bait.

 

The christmas teams are so bad this guy gets a 64% win rate over 30 days (covering the whole christmas period) and almost 3k avg wn8.

 

Either you're trolling, or massively padding in lower tier/ platooning for stats.

 

And an 80% win rate over the last 24hrs confirms it. Either way, this thread is total BS

 

Mods, do your thing.

The red text you're replying to was added by a moderator and addressed to the poster of that comment. Don't take everything negative quite so personally, it's not healthy.

It is just WG's way of letting you know that intelligent people have stopped giving a dime for this game anymore,if all it is easier for me now to not spend on this shitshow anymore
