Just a positive thread where you can bring attention to those that did a good deed or were generally decent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This guy helped me get out of a tough spot when a flank was about to crumble by pushing my ConquerorGC with his Strv 103B as he was relocating himself. I hadn't asked, he just did it.

 

We won the game, both survived it and he went on to take the first spot in XP. This was in Ranked, of all places.

 

 

 

After this battle, I got sent this

 

 

 

 

So, whenever someone helps you out, sends a 'thank you' message at the end of a match or is generally decent towards you or the team, do praise them in a more public setting if you want to and help spread some good vibes.

After all, here you can name them, as there's no shaming.

 

Yes, I'll try to keep up and list them and they'll be able to see themselves if they ever find this post:

Spoiler

 

 

 

Edit: apparently it's worthy mentioning that the person to name should be someone other than yourself.

I had one battle that i carried in my Progetto 65, it was something like 5 vs 3 (my team 2 artys and me, enemy team 2 TDs and 2 MTs, one HT) 

Anyway, I was on Lakeville (or however it's called), and I was top tier, I managed to spot enemy TDs for my artys and they finished them, the rest was easy clip, the MTs were like one shot, and the other 3 shots. I destroyed them after trading some HPs, but the enemy HT got me. And my artys finished him, was my best game in progetto. And after that battle 3 guys who were top by XP after me said "thank you" to me for winning it. :P

Sadly it wasn't enough for an Ace though, got only 1.1k base XP.

And they fell into my little trap to derail them into thinking that this thread is for bragging about own achievements.

Had a couple of nice guys last night who let me cap for my mission (union-10) when the battle was already won (4v1 at that point). :honoring:

Does not seem at all that OP had that in mind, so I guess it is just you.

Nice thread idea Spurtung.

 

I had this nice message when 3 marking the bathtub recently:

 

I've posted this previously in another thread but it still makes me laugh. This popped up on the in-game chat after I was in a 1v5 situation, managed to kill 4 tanks in succession and was then desperately trying to cross the the lower hill to find the remaining arty and secure my 1st Kolobanov's (Sadly it wasn't to be but the chat at least made me smile)

As per the report options in the game, I think it would be nice to give some players a positive report for great play or just generally being a nice bloke.

I've done like 2 separate threads on this myself in the last 2?3? years or so. So far so nothing.

Yes i know, and i haven't praise myself, i was happy because there were people who actually appreciated my gameplay while others were insulting and calling me a "Camper", even after i won that game.

And yes, i truly appreciated those who sent the positive messages to me. 

I would never praise myself, because there's absolutely way better players than me out there. :)

I have been making extra efforts in the past week to thank team mates for thier efforts and starting every game with a ' stay healthy ' message, which usually gets at least 4-5 other people saying thanks/affirmative/you too, good vibes!

Seems to be helping too as my win rate has gone through the roof this week, along with my recent average damage going up.

It also seems to me there is a lot less rage in the game recently and people are actually trying to help each other.

Faming is negative shaming and anykind of shaming is not allowed. :trollface:

I'm glad to see you have a rigid bathroom schedule. I'm a little concerned you rely on WoT players to remind you though

Had a battle about a year ago where I "outplayed" (a bit, had also some luck on my side) 907 better player than me in my 140 and carried the game. Guy sent me PM with congratz and something, and then we were PM chatting for a while. Was nice. Nice change from: Aimbot hacker replay sent WG PMs, or Bot reported PMs, from clueless players.

I mean, I'm really not sure where we're supposed to stand on this. I forget whether or not the past mods actually decided to lock these threads since I know a number of them have popped up over the years.

 

For now, I am going to make the decision to allow it. So long as it remains positive (I'll have to try and keep an eye on it), I think it's fine to exist. I can't speak for anyone else though and someone else might choose to lock it, or we might have a discussion with staff about what to do. But yeah, for now,
