Now I remember why I quit this game. Even level 1 battles are campfests.

Just had like 3 battles in a row with level 1 and 2 tanks where everyone hides behind cover and waits for someone else to move out and get shot. I've done spreadsheets that were more fun than this.

Would you admit to sealclubbing with your main account?

If you don't like low tier gameplay, don't play low tier.

I quit the game in 2013, decided to come back and give it another try. Looks like it was a mistake. At least I didn't spend any money this time, thank goodness. :P

 

Oh, and I see the community is just as friendly and welcoming as always!

What exactly are you expecting at Tier I/II? Far as I remember it's always been a campfest at those tiers, since tanks have no viewrange and players have no clue what they're doing, not to mention guns are usually so inaccurate you could miss the wall of a barn from the inside.

when I play tier 2 its always fats paces action, maybe I play aggresvly and win at tier 2 

 

I find tier 10 much more campy

To be fair, we don't get many that are upset about tier 1 players expecting... gameplay. So I suspect they want some amusement out of it.

 

As if you get upset at tier 1 and 2 players, you already lost. It's either 100% super passive, or full yolo from all 30 tanks. There is never going to be anything in between on that tier. New players have no clue and play as expected, and old players use tier 1 and 2 as their "I don't care" tier. As we all do at times. I don't care if I win or lose at that tier. If you do care, you won't have enough blood pressure to survive higher tiers either. So... I suspect it's for the best.

Tier 1and 2 games have always been huge campfests. I remember the days I started, Province was still a thing at those tiers and T18 was around. Everyone was camping to the death and match was advancing at a glacial pace. There are tons of genuinely new players at those tiers, and sealclubbers.

I find that how friendly and welcoming people are depends on how friendly and welcoming you are to them.

So what reaction were you expecting when you created a non-constructive whine thread?

Just charge in (it's quite a slow charge) with the FT armed with the autocannon, try to knock out 1 bum, and T1 games are all action and soon over, well they are for me at any rate, how long others take I have no idea!

Patience, young padawan. When you get to tier 3 you will be introduced to the secrets of gold spamming which some consider unnatural....

Didn't even make the 2 min mark in my IS-3A on Campinovka. Drove into bush by a cottage. Two seconds later I think 3 enemy tanks had shot me multiple times and my turret flew up in the air. Back to garage, exit game.

Level 1 tanks... I remember this as the shitfest of machinegun tanks that 'clip' you in a singe go.
I actually liked those matches even less than the T10's

Stopped playing somewhere in 2018, curse the baboon king as watching him tanking brought me back...

Game didn´t change much, sure new tanks and stuff but the majority of players still run around like horny teenagers stuck with a full bladder after they took 2 of daddies blue pills.

 

edit: I miss cross team chat... the tears and insults generated when spamming skill ammo made the game so much better.

I played T1 the other day and tried to play properly and forgot everybody hides at spawn :D I got absolutely destroyed.

 

Don't forget some of the players are genuinely new in those tiers and don't have a clue what to expect yet. Or maybe they get a rush from hiding all game
