That thought crossed my mind, as I was going through some threads where top gun guys were discussing the efforts required to keep their stats in the green...

 

Where is the fun of being nonchalant if your play is continuously influenced by that one objective?

 

Does it mean you only have to play with certain tanks? always on point? you can never relax and be easy going?

 

Are you having fun at all? what kind of fun then?

More fun than bad players.  :trollface:

 

It's not hard or stressful to maintain purple stats when you are good.  I've been doing the Machine for a couple months so more slow high tier stuff with no super unicum light tank or mid tier padding, and my Wn8 still keeps going up.  The only stress I had was when I was getting close to purple and I still had to overcome thousands of games of being a shitter.

 

As far as tank selection, the tanks most likely to give high Wn8 (fast, high RoF, autoloaders) are also the tanks that are most fun to play.

Turns out getting kills, lots of damage, and winning games is in fact fun.

Tons of fun. I play whatever I feel like playing. If my stats increase, cool. If they drop, that's also cool. Maybe one day I will be a uniscum, or maybe I will remain human, either way it's cool. If anything, I play to win and that naturally means I'm making an effort and the stats reflect it.

 

Bottom line is, forget the stats. No point playing a game if you're not having fun doing it.

Yes. 

I play well because I like the feeling of being useful. Purple stats are just a by-product of that.

Putting up purple numbers isn't too difficult, I can't speak for every unicum but I never really worry about my WN8, it usually sorts itself out just through playing :)

 

I have good and bad sessions just like everyone else but as long as I have a laugh and get some games good enough for my channel I'm happy.

Lately my stats have taken a nose dive.

I was trying to reach overall purple, but now I just don't care.

I play whatever and whenever just for fun.

Been even playing Arty which gives my stats a big hit because I'm terrible at it.

Considering that it usually requires little to no effort for me to keep my purple stats, yes. It's fun.

What is not to like on nearly always being the nr on the team and always in the top 5 of the team... ohw and dont forget average damage games for me are great games for other players.... sure i can patato some times, but even then i am rarely in the bottom 5 of the team.....

the game is fun, and chacing big games is all the fun, failing is part of it, and if you cant handle failing thats when you lose fun.... mindset is key

I stopped playing for purple stats a while ago and usually just play for marks in all different kinds of tanks instead.

Are you having fun at all? what kind of fun then?

Usually what I do is, I'll play my tens. if I have more than 3 mediocre games I'll play a different tank that I'm good at. 3-4 times and get good results so that I'm always ahead. 

 

2 bad games. I'll try 3-4 good games. 

 

If I ever get a loss. I'll always try for 2 wins. If not possible such as a losing streak of 4-5 + I'll get off for the night. 

 

I have lots of fun. but it's easy to pad wn8

 

Example

 Say I played some poor matches in tier 8 TT tanks. If I do terribly such as in a stock grind. I'll play the panther 8.8 5-6 times lol you only need to do like 1,200 damage to get uni stats so it's super easy to fix it lol 

 

It doesn't feel like a chore because I actually like the panther 8.8 arguably the best pref medium tank imo, but just so happens it's easy to get good stats in. 

 

But yeah. If I have some bad games I'll most certainly try and have some good games in favorable tanks. 

 

Weather that's fun for me is up to debate. 

 

If I decide to do something crazy/fun/stupid that's going to result in me getting bad stats on that tank. I'll go ahead and play some serious matches after. To balance them out. 

 

It's not too stressful. I enjoy playing this game. though I'm sick and tired of the broken match maker giving our team 2 top tiers and the enemy 7 top tiers. like it's so annoying its making me stop playing lol mm is the biggest problem with this game.

all depends on what one considers fun, personally for me its trying to win most games and attempting to do the most damage/assisted possible while not trying to take myself to seriously especially when I'm in platoons.

Casually when i'm having fun i end up with daily purple stats in way many tanks, so that could give an actual answer.

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

It tends to vary. I had 2 games in a tier 7 earlier when I did 4k damage per game and lost. That wasn't much fun.

Except when playing arty, I am usually the first tank to make contact with the enemy. I fight forward positions constantly throughout almost every battle...that is how I have fun. I have light blue to dark blue stats about 95% of the time, purple or dark purple 3% of the time, and green 2% of the time (usually due to playing arty that session).  I can be super careful and put up purple more often if I want, but I have more fun being aggressive and risky. 

 

Last night, I quit with 2Kish wn8...this morning, I had a good aggressive run in my Brit mediums and heavies and my 24 hour period wn8 shows 3k at the moment. I had 4000+, 5000+, and 6000+ direct damage in the SConq, 215B, and Chieftain respectively. I played my way and had fun...the numbers just happened to work out.

Some might disagree with me but ever since I got the purple stat I feel I get more and more "special" teammates that dont know how to play and every game is a roflstomp so I dont have much fun but every now and then I get a mercy game that I get good teammates and have an amazing game.

When you get good at the game, you become more aware of how bad most players are at the game. Just the way it is. With that said I still make potato mistakes, and there is a voice in my head telling me what I am doing will end badly but I do it anyway. I'll always be part potato lol.

So the answer is yes.

I'd I had purple stats I'd be able to answer the question but what I can say as a bluenicum is yes I have a lot of fun. If it's all going to [edited]I turn off and play something else, pointless chasing a good game when you're not in the right frame of mind to do so
