Please add a feature similar to the Exclude Maps.

 

I [edited]hate to play against some tanks. I want to put them to my exclude list and never want to play against them.

 

This way Wargaming might have better statistic to look into while balancing tanks.

 

Kind Regards

Sounds like a nice idea.

Same as with maps, so one tank per player, two if on premium account? :)

 

Boundless freedom aside though, there's quite a substantial difference between maps and tanks so that's one of the reasons why the idea is too bad and won't work.

 

For example, if you wish to forbid other people to play their tanks that's quite an anti-social and anti-gamer kind of stance to take, even so much so that we couldn't even have that type of thing in WoT. Simply put, if people were all preventing each other from playing their tanks, that might result in people not playing tanks => no more WoT.

 

That's why we can't have that, cause it would absolutely destroy the game.

Otherwise it's still a nice idea though.

Probably some people will like it.

Once you start customizing personal games, the stats lose all relevance. It's bad enough you can exclude game types and maps.

Just think, some of those people with great win rates aren't even playing the same games as you.

They know what tanks people hate already. If everyone blocks the FV4201 or the 279 E, you think they will be balanced faster? That and most people in those tanks are mostly 60% WR players vs your average IS-7 Steve driver. So it's not like the data was easy to look at as is, as their games won't change just because you won't see that one tank.

If that's what you're telling yourself, ask them what game modes and maps they got excluded so you can play the same games they do.

How about properly balancing tanks to begin with so you don't get vehicles so broken that everyone hates them?

 

Surely tackling the actual cause is better then treating the symptoms in the long run? Wargaming has been doing nothing more then treating symptoms for years and it's only gotten a lot worse in terms of gameplay and balancing since.

That would be great, all the cars can play with themselves as the majority of people would exclude them.

Yeah imagine the horror. Actually being able to enjoy a game without being clicked on from across the map with little you can do about it. Maybe give everyone the option to play with or without artys in game and everyone would choose the latter. Therefore proving what an unpopular and game destroying feature they are.

Because there needs to be powerful vehicles so that people want to grind and, of course, pay. Besides, there are so many vehies that there will always be more or less powerful examples. 

 

As a whole the player base avoids the M3 Lee but desires the Defender.

That's just ridiculous... No. That'll never happen.

Don't get me wrong, I understand there will always be minor difference between tanks of the same tier making one hypothetically better then the other, which is fine.

 

But if you look the Chieftain/FV42020204040 and the IS-4 this is a difference that is simply *too* massive to be workable. Or the Defender and the 110, it's just no competition and it's simply bad balancing at play.

They are nerfing wheels thankfully but unfortunately they dropped some brain cells along the way and decided to keep stun for arta when they hit a teammate, and stun in general.

Looking at the comment I would like to clarify few things

 

- I believe there would be enough players who are happy with the state of the games and would not put any tanks to exclude list.

- I am sick of playing against some tanks, which make me not enjoy the time I spent with game. Which would result in a smaller player base

- Looking at the comments I think there are various player groups that hates different kind of tanks, some hate arties, some hate wheeled tanks and others have reward tanks. I am surprised no body mentioned one shot boom sticks. 

 

Thanks for the feed back.

I'd rather be able to exclude more maps. Two for standard account. Plus two for premium.

 

This is quite a stupid idea, which makes the queue get epilepsy. The top five tanks that would be the most banned ones would obviously be: 279e, Chieftain, EBR and Conqueror GC. Not that I wouldn't mind anything that would make life easier, but this type of idea just would not pass.

These days I just report any Object 279e and FV4201 I see on principle, it does nothing anyway but lets me express what I think about those obscenities and the ones playing them.

Back to being serious though, OP's suggestion would not work because there would be a mass ban of arties, as @TankkiPoju already mentioned, and because rather than fix a broken leg with a bandaid, I'd rather we do the proper treatment and make that leg good again - that is to say, massive tank rebalancing is much needed, the above mentioned Bobject and FV are just the most egregious examples.
