So, instead of afking they simply suicide right at the start of the match.

 

Just had a certain dump on my team and our team got rolled 15-0 because 2 of our team committed suicide right away. A 3rd team mate got 1 shot by a deathstar less than 40s into the match.

 

Why is this [edited]allowed WG?

At least they can't do it in their sleep.

I have to admit I dont' see much AFK or suicide activity. Is this a higher tier thing?

Nothing new. Ive seen players use rubber bands to beat the system too.

It got worse than Sacred Valley match? Yuck.

I usually can say the outcome of a match just by seeing the setup, or watching potatoes in the first 30 seconds. You should have gotten out of that game with those 2 and dont waste your time.

I actually had my internet cut out last night. I was able to get three shots out before everything froze. I survived

Sometimes I'm in top player of my team and sometimes I'm 0 0 0 player. Nothing to do with bottom tier, bad maps or platoons? No, I'm just potatoe, don't pay attention to me.  Luckily I have so many tanks that I don't have to sit and watch how team stumbless around when it tries to escape from the bad battle.

There are still plenty of AFKers in this game.

I find it annoying when they are on the enemy team.  Steam rolls and blowouts are not that fun and are usually caused by one team having multiple AFK players.  Today I had two separate 15-0 blowouts which had multiple AFK players on the enemy team.

What about the new surge of possum players? They seem like AFK'rs, but only fight back once they reach half heath.

I'd wager that's how he deploys his tank quite often.

  

Some people claim Ensk should be tier restricted.   I don't believe their lies. 

Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of bad advice from players who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.

Just because this happen does not mean we allow it.  I just want to make that clear. We cant stop players who are driving their tanks to suicide in game.  If you see this happen, please report it and MaxChaos24 will look in to it.

Perhaps we could automate a penalty system -- if you suicide, you cannot enter a new battle for 15 minutes (the time for a full standard battle) after the completion of the battle you quit. 

This might discourage this sort of behavior.
