I just wanted to ask if anyone can top this for a player lacking a sense of proportion about the game. It was in response to a win in a tier 5 game where I was in the Matilda BP.

 

The KV1 driver I’d mostly been facing suggested that the tank was OP and I was cheating. I asked if that was the case how come his win rate was in the high 60s and mine’s just over 51%. I also pointed out that my WR in the BP was only 58%.

 

I got reply that again suggested premiums were cheating as they gave an unfair advantage. My response was that they also pay for the game he’s playing for nothing.

 

THEN THIS LITTLE NUGGET: “it’s like doping in sport, it gives you an edge and it’s cheating”.

 

Doping in sport? Really? I tried to make light of it as I’m not fond of getting into slanging matches over chat but he was really in earnest. In the end I actually blocked him not for abuse but I honestly couldn’t think of what I could say in response that didn’t sound either insulting or incredulous.

People just lash out. Some premiums are annoying, Drac, Mod.1, etc., and it is easy to allow that annoyance to boil over into accusations. At least your case sounds coherent.

I had a dead T32 claim I was reported in my first battle in an IS-3. Questioning led to the reason being cheating and being a gold noob. Much easier to blame me than realise that you shouldn't drive a hull down tank to an outnumbered fight in a flat city.

Btw, my stats premiums 941 battles 57.39% WR average tier 5.81, non- premiums 6978 battles 55.99% tier 5.41.

So I'm not very good at doping apparently.

Lol, me neither, I knew wine, bourbon and lager were not performance enhancing...

Non-premium: 8,165 battles, WR 50.08

Premium: 4,204, WR 50.31

It’s almost as if playing a premium tank made no difference :facepalm: when I were a lad protection from Durex were better...

I’ve spent lots of money, bought tanks, gold, used gold for slots to skip timers, buy credits when short, golded tech tree tanks, etc...

Again it’s like WG treat me the same as someone who doesn’t spend cash! Not fair, it’s not fair I tell you :child:

Ok we seem to be comparing premium and non premium......

Premium: 3669, wr 58.0%

non premium : 19380, wr 53.53%

 

So what does that make me?........careful of using my premium tanks, or simply total noob when I first started as I simply played and didn't learn anything for the first 10000 (approximately) battles!

Premiums should generally have a higher WR than non premiums .

 

Why? Because you don't have to complete the initial grind for crew skills and modules that leave you at a disadvantage on the Battlefield. 

 

Although the type of premiums available these days has changed. They were supposed to be slightly underperforming variants of their tech tree equivalents. Not so these days.

Guys you have no idea how to cheat and be protected... Of course you have to send WG a ticket saying "hello Mr. WG, I bought a [Insert Premium Tank Name] , could you please make it protected because I paid for it"... Once you do that you will start winning all the time like me... Premium tanks 72.0% average, Non-Premium 67.8% ... :trollface:

I wouldn’t worry about it, the Tilda BP is a tough tank but the trade off on mobility and speed stops it being OP, 

 

As for the doping, from what I see most players are drunk or stoned, so doping is obviously rife in the game but then my understanding is that the former Soviet bloc has a liberal view of that in sport!

I know its a noob question but still...
How do you guys see your wr in only prem and only tech tree tanks?
Im curious because i want to see mine.

 I do know that the way i express myself to some, if not most, people sound a bit too...aggressive? salty? rude?... but this is the way i speak and the way my thought train rolls...so...yeah...i'm not trying to insult anyone or pick up any fights.

Yeah; just sent WG a ticket and ask them to include you in the protected players MM queue. Works great.

blitzstars.com. Search your accountname, scroll down to tanks. There you have the option to make some different selections. Beneath the nations you can select premium show/ hide.

P.S.: sorry for my english

That much i know.

So there is no option to just show you the wr in premiums? You have to calculate it by yourself?

That's a bit disappointing. :)

Just say: Show only Premiums... Then the avg WR will be written on top at the WR column.

Don´t be afraid. You dont have to do all the math. Just look at the top line. there is the summary for your chosen sample. :)

 

Edit. SSK was faster

To call the BP overpowered reveals a complete lack of knowledge about the game. How many battles did he have? Less than a thousand, hopefully...

Mouthbreathers will pick at any straw to rationalize their defeat. If not because you were driving a premium tank then because you were shooting prammo.

Then they will pick apart your stats in search of a weakspot so as to reaffirm how they're really the superior player.

Block and move on.

I agree about the BP but he felt it was OP because of the rate of fire. I mentioned the similar ROF in others such as the Crusader etc but to no avail. I even asked him, if his theory was true, if tech tree tanks can be OP because I’ve enriched a couple of mine so they earn more. That’s when the doping in sport came up so at that point I realised the only dope here was me for engaging him in conversation so I blocked him. 

Bascially a sore loser I think. His win rate was about 68% on 4000+ games so he was obviously good, but just hates losing.
