Is it just me or has the general standard of Play just drop drematicly over the last few months???

 

I know that the EU is in Lock down but even players with 30k + battles have some how forgotten what to do in a teir 10 Tank!!!!  FFS Just played a IS-2-II battle against Teirs upto 10, on Mountain Pass and not a single tank (Apart from me and an Emil (Which turned around once realised it was only us) and then the team start calling out Individuals for not doing what they should.  Needless to say we had our arses handed to us 14 - 0

 

This has been a constant occurance for the past couple of months and is near impossible to get more than a 50% Win Rate.

 

What are other people thoughts??

I like the lower tiers but it has all gone mad there. Some of the Tier3 games feel like we have a majority of people who have skipped bootcamp, tier1 and tier2 somehow. Clueless nutters just dozing around the map. In a t4 we had 3 guys camping at base shooting a tree. They ended up being the last guys on our team and got sniped 1 by 1 with no retaliation or evasive action. Almost makes me wonder if the bot accusations have some truth? I started the game in June last year and it has never been like this.

Anyway all you can do is try your best and pray you have some competent players on your team or that the defeats were somewhat worthwhile...

All the blueprints and XP boosters and stuff have made it possible to get into tier X with only a few hundred battles played -> utter noobs that used to be playing tier V tanks are now sitting and trashing IX and X tiers.

 

Also there are a whole lot of bot behavior amnong players these days. About the same time as the Chinese server started implementing bots to fill up the player base. While the entire WoT playerbase is declining. So you dosent really have to be Alex Jones to be suspicios about what is happening...

The general standard of play has always been poor- how else can you explain the number of accounts from 2012 / 13 with 30K plus battles that cant get to a 50% WR or average more 1 than shot of a damage a game.

The problem is people playing this game for fun.

 

You're not supposed to play with the intention of "having fun" in a way that doesn't contribute to the positive outcome of a battle. There's a reason "Unsportsmanlike Conduct" is a report option, and it should be enforced on trolls fooling around being useless in battle.

 

Also, tiers should be locked until you've researched a certain number of tanks in a certain tier! This would be the best way to prevent new players being shoved into tier 10 battles where they are more beneficial to the enemy team than theirs. This means locking premium tanks until that tier is unlocked, too!

I think the over reliance of gold ammo is partly to blame. Long gone are the days where if you come up against a superior tank. You have to think of a way to get a better shot at it by out thinking it & getting a better position. Or if you you come up against a tank camping behind a mound, you have to either try & hit the weak spot on its turret or flank it. Now all people do is hit than 2 key & point & click. Makes no difference how you angle or position yourself, or even if you up against a tank 2 tiers lower than you. It'll pen you all day long. 

WG have ruined this game with their greed driven updates to try & manipulate us into spending at every turn. You know, I asked a question about World of Tanks on IGN a few months ago & I was asked not to bring up this game again. When I asked why, they said they don't discuss pay to win games. Which is all you really need to know really about this game.

And you may notice the awards this game has received on the splash screen when you load it up? Awards from websites Wargaming owns lol

So whats the alternative? Genuine question. Is there a better game similar to WOT. If you or anyone knows of one please let me know, it appears WG have their own agenda which does not take into account the genuine recommendations given by players who play this day in and out. Once you have cut through the many rants of course.

That must be why so many bad players finish a battle with 0 damage...

Indeed, it's a mystery how anyone can do less than their own hitpoints in damage if its simply a case of dab 2 and they point and click and yet they do.

Teams are terrible got a battle in T1Heavy last night that ended in a draw because 7 of our tanks was afraid of leaving camping area - enemy got only Grille arty...

Got teams like that entire evening + add to that constant lags and disconections - funny other online games works fine so its a server problem

That was a somewhat interesting comment.
