Okay, I shall rephrase.

 

If you can't play at tier 8, maybe you should take a longer vacation.

 

Better?

Settle down there Mr. Elitism, tier 8 isn’t the problem.   The problem I have is that everytime I play a tier 8, I’m seeing tier 10.   That [edited]gets old FAST.

I'm not an elitist at all.

I am merely stating the facts.

being bottom tier every game is a mathematical impossibility.

 

But perhaps you just feel like your bottom tier?

 

The MM hasn't changed, so I don't know what you're on about,

I haven’t played tier 8 all day other than my PMM tanks.   I finally decide to play my 252u, first 2 matches bottom tier.   I’d bet my 3rd match will be bottom tier as well.   It gets old fast.

The issue really is, if you play 5 different tier 8's, you could be bottom 10 times. That will certainly feel like. "all the time". That is the gripe I have. Cause even if I am grinding a tank, if I die early, I go pick another tier 8 and it is bottom tier again. Rinse repeat and it feel like all the time.

This is it in a lot of cases.

 

Just now though, I just did 6 matches straight in my 252u.   4 bottom tier and 2 top.   0 mid tier.

Barff. Lets just hope and pray whatever they changed in 4.6 is better than what we have now.

I’m on the Borsig right now. First, get the upgrade before you complain. Then burn the top—tier world no problem. At tier 10, you occasionally need to shoot some skill ammo. :trollface: Other than that, I can’t see anything wrong with the tank. As long as you’ve got the perks to stay hidden, you blow lots of stuff up.

You can’t play 4 battles then complain about the MM. Seriously people.

 What happens to me if I play Lowe or Fatherland is first game will be a heavy  ten game, then a nine, then another 10 then I'll get a couple of top tier games.  So you just have to plough through.

 

It will work out that you're playing 1 in 3 games top tier which is as intended

Maybe and maybe not - what difference what tank then - all this becomes is another +2 MM complaint. And the Borsig can handle it.

You've played FOUR LOUSY GAMES.  Stop wasting our time with this [edited].  

 

I'm getting really tired of these small sample size overreaction threads clogging up the board.  

 

If there’s lots of them, you could possibly tally them up for a larger sample. 

 

Playing it safe

1 top tier game out of 4 in a tank that is better than most when bottom tier is hardly worth comlaining about. Like others have said, play more than four games before complaining about the MM, which wasn't even that bad.

Damn the torpedoes.........full speed ahead!

It’s not the tank I have problems with.   It’s the MM of always being bottom tier and always being with a bunch of useless players at tier 10 while I’m in a tier 8.

The Borsig is one of the few tier VIIIs that I’ve had that I really wasn’t bothered to be bottom tiered in. It actually speeds up the grind ( though that word doesn’t really apply to this tank).

Right now this tank is popping veins in my neck.   Just doesn’t matter where I seem to go, I’m always getting somehow surrounded.   I keep getting yoloing light tanks thatbspot me.   Got blinded shot from arty.   Just [edited]bad luck.   I can’t seem to do anything wth this TD.   I don’t get it.   I do pretty good with my Skorpion G but this I can’t do anything.   Right now, this tank is cursed for me.   No matter what I do, I somehow get screwed.   Like a E100 got in a spot that I never expected and shot me for 750.   Every match is a loss.   Getting so frustrated right now.

The key is just to stay far enough back to not be spotted, which you’re absolutely right a yolo can ruin instantly. If you’re running all the TD crew perks, you should be loving it in no time - basically unseeable when the net is out.

Borsig is literally best stock tank in game, I agree.  It is beast out the door and that camo rating, splendid.

Again this tank has no issues being bottom tier. I actually welcome it because I get more exp per shot on higher tier tanks.

Borsig is fine, everything is fine once you get out of that Stubborn Emil. Even my Waffle and Baby Waffle before that bounce shots off weaker armored tanks.
