I admit it - I played a bad game -it  happens.  

 

I got in a bad position and my Freedom just didn't have the time to surge forward to cover at glacial like speed before I got HIT.

 

I ended up only getting 2 pens and 490DMG before I got all toasty. And  MAN, I wasn't alone on the team... I think I ended up 5th from the bottom.

 

But really - Mr. Player with +91K battles, did you really need to send me the <thumbs down emoji> message? 

 

Sigh.

LOL, to Swindle's point, the loudest usually aren't the best. 

True story -- when I was relatively new to the game, and just a complete plebe, I had gotten myself over-extended in my IS-6. I overestimated my tank, myself, and the two greens I had with me. After I died an inglorious death, a unicum from one of the top clans wrote me a private message. It said, "keep at it."

I wasn't sure if it was sarcasm or genuine, so I sent back a thumbs up. He sent back one as well. 

He probably doesn't even remember it, but I do, and to this day I respect him and that clan.

Moral of the story is, at least in my experience, most of the true unicums are pretty encouraging and they get that you are trying, learning, etc. As for the a holes, well, they send a thumbs down.

Just my .02

I think I know which one it was, he's not a bad guy, he's probably just being a bit salty because of the bad result. You shouldn't let it bother you.

In my experiences the true unicom players that havent rerolled or bought an account never criticize. Actually they dont say much at all. When i say true unicom i mean the players who can play all tanks well. Not just lights lol. And no matter your stats we all have games that we fail or slip up.

I wouldn't have taken it personally since it sounds like the battle was a thumbs down from the greens, not overly helpful but not overtly salty in the way it was delivered.

I'd be inclined to comment back with yeah, my performance in that game sucked.

I guess it all depends on what was meant by the thumbs down.

If they had sent a thumbs up and great job comment instead, given the performance, that would sound like some arrogant pratt mocking me and i'd be more inclined to feel worse about it.

Well not surprising when they have to cope with idiots playing badly :trollface:

 

I only get messages from bad players, people who want to report me and the very odd "well played"

In my last match with the Aufklärungspanther the Tier 9 Heavy Tank said to do the spotting closer to him cause his gun was damaged. I was like no. He said Im the worst scout ever.

That match alone had a WN8 of 18500. 6000 Average and 3 marked that beast


There are a lot of poeple out there who think you have to play on their favor, to make them look good.

ROFLMAO - I had a game like that.  In my T95, guessed the wrong side of the map to ambush the lemming train and spent way too much time trying to hustle to where the fight lit up.  The words “hustle” and T95 should not be used in the same sentence but I digress...

 

Got a thumbs down from a Uni.  I wrote back and said, “Not my best game” which he replied, “There’s worse??”.  I wrote back, “Sadly, yes”.  He replied, “Oh.  GG then!”.  We ended the PM with a thumbs up.

Most people, who are decent players, who give the thumbs down usually are expressing themselves in a simple way.

Not necessary but it happens.

I've been there.

Had a terrible game,had an almost instantaneous bad gut diarrhea reaction which froze me. My tank was in a bad position and I got wrecked.

Good player gave me the thumbs down. I messaged back saying sorry man, bad game. Diarrhea pains. He laughed and said he understood and gg.

On the standard happy smiley, you hold the button down and up pops a menu with some other icons, among them the poop.

 

Or, so I've heard... :rolleyes:

I’m guessing most of the discouraging/negative messages happen on xbox? 

 

I would only reserve the word unicorn for people who are really good at the game and nice—that is a special kind of person if you are good and humble. 

 But I would not be offended if they laughed at some of the silly things my tank does. :)

 

If if a person is good at the game, but is rude and arrogant, it doesn’t really matter how good they are.

I've been known to send the odd emoji.

Mostly to people that either 1) shoot my tank, 2) bump into my tank, 3) drive in front of my aimed gun, 4) purposely troll someone else on the team.

 

Driving in front of my full aimed gun is a huge pet peeve of mine.

 

Why can't people go around? Or if we're in the same spot, wait until I shoot and I'll get out of the way so you can shoot and vice versa.

 


 

Bring back the old chaffee!
