So i got insulting messages from a player for "focussing" and apparently "everyone hates people who focus". What is focussing? Now i am certainly not new to this game, i am by no means a bad player either. My interpretation of this is one of two things judging by what this player was crying about.

1. i used sniper mode to target his weak spots which he quite kindly presented to me.

2. Concentrating all my fire on him and nobody else. He said he was surrounded by 5 other tanks but i was the only one "focussing on him even though he wasn't even aiming at me". Given i did his Super Conq. for over 1200 damage it would seem now one else was shooting at him too much.

Taking any of my interpretations of "Focusing" into account i fail to see how either of them can be wrong. 

 

You can't seriously tell me that

1. no one uses sniper mode when brawling or when or peaking over hills to target weak spots.

2. just points and shoots every single time and just simply hopes for the best

3. Does nothing until another play actively targets you.

 

I really have no idea why he got so worked up other than i beat him fair and square in my FV4202 by actively targeting his weak spots!

Checking out his WOTINFO stats wise he is Unicom across the board making him a far superior player compared to my Stats, this i was surprised at given his rant as he should obviously know how to play and how the game is played. To say that playing either of the ways i mentioned is wrong because they don't do it that way is extremely chidlish.

I have recently returned to WOT after about a 3 month break and it still never ceases to amaze me at the immaturity of some of the player base!

the only time focusing is unsporting is if you were an arty, he could very well have countered a tank that focused him.   being focused by arty is cancer.

 

had a game in my mutant a couple weeks back, first hit i took was arty (only one a side in the match), so i backed off a bit and he missed me, i moved to the other flank and was undetected for 2 minutes in the process, within 30 seconds of being spotted he dropped another load of sky-shite on me. 

 

 

unicorns that are having bad days tend to get extremely salty however. I know i was yesterday when it took me 7 games to get my first win. never understood why someone would send hate-mail... though i do occasionally send dry-sarcastic GG mail.

At least you were insulted for a reason. I believe that the stress of this game only brings out the worst in many players. Hate mail is venting that stress.

He's mad that you took him out, nothing more. Laugh at him and move along.

If i die it is all on me, i have been out played or i made mistakes, surely that has to apply to everyone! The nature of the game is to destroy your opposition and survive. If you die then your opponent has succeded in half of that. 

Artillery, although i don't care much for it again if i die from it then that is no fault but my own. To blame the artillery, they simply took advantage of you being spotted........as do any player arty or not if you are spotted.

You should have told him you only focus fire on easy targets.  

 

Seriously, though, if he's upset because you continued to fire on a tank until it was dead, then perhaps this isn't the game for him.  I'd suggest something more along the lines of Viva Piñata for their delicate sensibilities.

Focusing on targets is how you eliminate them. A good player will back off when they're being focused and allow their team mates to take some of the enemies attention.

I have been a recipient of this type of hate mail. Don't worry about it, the complaint is not legitimate. As other players have said, he is just peeved that you took him out or crippled him. Really don't get Red team players bitter about getting shot by Green team players. Very odd dynamic and definitely a few french fries short of a Happy Meal in the logic department.

How do you know that player is unicum? I have tried to figure that out. In PC they have a mod for it, but on console, how to do it during battle? Is it clan tag?

Use an old xbox Kinect that you have connected to a computer.  Use software that scans your TV screen when you pull up the big map at the start of a match.  The software looks up the players and gives you their wn8.

I focus on any target that can be eliminated...Conversely, I GRAB focus when I am playing light tanks to allow teammates to shoot reds who are intent on putting rounds in my tank...I think this player was just butt-hurt because you weren't leaving him alone so they could preserve their precious purple stats... I get that a lot...along with "cheater" and "unsporting" reports...

Look up their tag on WN8 on a laptop while playing? That would be my guess...

Many people have their gaming monitor right next to their desktop monitor.  It's easy to pull up wotinfo or the stats page of a player once you're dead.


If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Clan tags usually tend to call way much too attention if the rest of the players of your team doesn't have one. Specially by those which have a clan tag as well and regardless of their skill level.

Sometimes they go full berserk and comit way too many mistakes to pick them up apart (I've fallen into that bait as well sometimes, tunnel vision at it's finest). Problem comes when the regular scrubs, arty and his mother realice that in-game commands are worth to be taken in consideration instead of being ignored because USMCPotato-KingBob247789 knows better than anyone despite it's 45% win ratio and it's 650 overall WN8 in it's 5 years old account

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

Was in a game a while back on PS4 were a guy was ranting that anyone without a clan tag was a garbage player.
He was sent to the garage post haste.
Looked him up, he was the garbage player
