This would explain countless 15:1/2/3 matches...

One of WG's biggest mistakes is having the default size of the map so tiny because most players don't realise they can make it bigger. It's been mentioned to WG many times by many people but they've still not changed it. It's almost as if WG want the majority of players to be clueless :(

Using the minimap is considered hacking, thx for reporting yourself.

Minimap only useful when your screen switched on.

Most WOT players seem to be undergoing this Jedi training and failing :

A minimap is as useful as the player's ability to properly read it.

My band, 'The Dyslexics', use a variety minimaps when we go touring. Much easier to get in a Merc Sprinter..

It doesn't explain 15:1 matches with someone as "good" as you on their team. Maybe you are part of the problem, camping and letting your allies die. I'd like to see I\m wrong and see some replays where you redirect to the weak flank to save your SPG's and prevent a cap...

There is a map? Where? When I play I dont have any map. I just shoot tanks I think are enemies. What map? What are you talking about?

He has an above 50% WR and you have a sub 50% WR, so no he is not the problem as he is clearly a positive influence on his team more often than not, whereas you are clearly a negative influence on your teams.  

 

I do always like comments like 'camping and letting your allies die' which in reality translates to someone over extends to a stupid position and then expects other team mates to throw away their tank as well trying to save them, when the better thing for the team is to not do that and let the person who made the stupid mistake die.  

 

And then said person who made a bad mistake and died will click the map for the rest of the game not learning a thing from their mistake.

there is just soooooo much irony in this post, it's almost like a post modern work of art. Almost...

15:1 matches in WOT shouldn't come as a surprice at lower levels....

 

Quick comment: Losses are due to plain stupidity.

 

The more complex answer is to evaluate existing WOT playerbase:

50% doesn't speak english (impossible to communicate with them in english).

50% doesn't bother reading about maps in strategy forums.

50% haven't studied the weakpoints on enemy tanks (doesn't know where to shoot).

50% Always use the kamikaze approach and  run into enemy defended positions. Have no clue how to use strongpoints of their tanks.

 

If you calculate the probability based upon the stupidity should be equal on both sides .... you should get close to 50% winrate over time. This is why you only need 2-3 unicum players to dominate and win any game (atleast Tier 5 - 8).

 

I was in a high end raiding guild for 15 years, and we used to kick players who didn't have the correct dedication and motivation.

 

Take a look at the statistics after the game and you will see why you lost. How many shots were fired, how many shots penetrated ? Mediums trying to kill heavies with standard ammunition from the front is a classic.... Stock tanks trying to accomplish great things usually end up in losses.

 

Beeing a free-to-play game expect to see players who doesn't even know the first three letters in the english alphabet. How do you expect them to find the + / - on the keyboard ?
