3 games bottom tier in each match, 3 rollover defeats the longest of which was 4 minutes only because it was a big map.

I've seen it all over the years, and I don't care, as I just quit (again) but this can't be an enjoyable experience for anyone on either side, and how on earth can you learn how to 'git gud' in two and a half minutes with a triple zero?

No less than 10 players out of the 30 did the donuts, that means 33% of the players, even at top tier, either have not the basics to compete or have been RNG'd to death.

 

I will take a certain amount of punishment before just walking away as is my choice, but this is a repeat of the same crap every time I give this game another go, 

This isn't some sort of lament for the good ol' days, just putting this into perspective.

There is a lot of talk about the new player experience, rightly so, it is getting critical, and this post is just another reminder that this should be your top priority IMHO.

Before you used to learn in many ways like the starting tutorial and mostly the War Stories (which you can say was a PVE mode based on WWII) when you were new, plus the way you used to upgrade tanks with the packs which was an extra motivation (with this new way of upgrading lines which makes no sense at all, no wonder newbies are leaving this game, even if I was new I would do it for this very reason).

 

The quality of players before used to be pretty decent and there were spectacular games, I know because when I played in my early days (and got to my first Tier X which was Super Conqueror) at the very least there was always a TRND0, CHAI or 7IRON in any team which was great because they were games that usually lasted 15 minutes and were decided by damage, points or deaths, the minimum that could last the games (in my personal experience) were 8 to 10 minutes, staying to see the end of the game was 100% worth it.

 

Since the introduction of 6.0 and more than anything recent decisions many veterans and experienced players have left, many more than WGCB anticipated, that caused an avalanche that was so brutal that it affected the whole game itself and haunts us to this day, not for nothing they took the decision (without warning as usual) to give advantage to the new players to try to retain them with which technically causes that the games where these players are involved are "fixed" so to speak because they had an unfair advantage over those who have been here for a long time (the veterans).

 

The recent quality of the players and the games as seen is lousy or even what follows, this is not COD in which there is if you must stay in the base without helping the team all the game, this is a real time strategy game in which you must make decisions (which can go right or wrong) depending on how the game goes, not stay behind without doing anything and then send DMs insulting others when the one who did nothing or did a Yolo was yourself (the latter is usually done by new players, I know from experience because I have been sent DMs with insults to give away).

 

WGCB urgently needs to do something about this, if it continues this way the new players (the ones that are there at the time) and the bots will be the vast majority in the games compared to the amount of veterans that there are and that are left in the game.

People aren’t playing?  Are you sure about that? I’m pretty sure I get pretty quick MM most days.  Sometimes teams are bad… sometimes good… but there’s definitely people playing.  Have you tried turning crossplay on? ;)

I don't play bottom tier. If I'm bottom tier I just quit. +/-2 should not exist, and it's my money. I'll play how I want.

I don't play only because of dumb filters. Other issues are not so bad.

I played Super Hellcat tier 7, basically being identical to TT Hellcat tier 6, so you play +3/-1. I like it.

Absolutely genius.  You are right, why punish ourselves.  I will try this as well.  Eventually will be matches half filled with rage quitters, and maybe War Gaming will do something.  Until then, I may have played my last tier 10 matchup in my tier 8 tank.

YOLO is always a serious fact.

 

Just think about it. Time is your most valuable asset.  As soon as you’re born, the countdown starts.  No one can tell you how much time you’ve got left, but it’s a finite number.

What a baby, do you give up irl when things get a bit hard? Enjoy getting anywhere in life with that attitude.

Why play at all then? You are ruining 14 other players games, 1/3 of the time.

 

Lets hope you win 100% of your games when not bottom tier then...

Bots are actually better players than him...he must be bottom tier and quit a lot or he's lost his controller.

I wouldn't take his advice, it's not genius, you're ineffectual enough as it is without quitting. Can't stand suiciders, afk, quitters etc...blight on the game.

I was RnG'd to death twice in a row last night. Made me call it a night. Literally missing point blank shots and sending worm burners down range on the simplest of shots. It's the most frustrating thing in this game. It's why I yolo most of the time because when I do try, RnG just does what it wants anyways and I usually pull the short stick on the draw.

It's a videogame. Not a job. You're as free to sweat for a win as I am to quit back to the garage when it's no longer fun.
