Blimey, just loaded my alt account (that I haven't used for ages but has a Pz IV S, SU-122-44 and T23E3) and it was like shooting fish in a barrel! Wasn't enjoyable in the slightest and I actually felt a bit dirty

I started a new account also.  Not as a reroll but to check out what was going on.  It's fun to a point until you realise you are probably one of 6 humans in the game, the rest being bots.  The bots are exactly as described by others on here.  As for the NooBs, I felt pretty bad, I decimated them endlessly.  Seal clubbing is just that, nothing wrong with a wee bit of seal clubbery once in a while but what I was doing was genocide.  I stopped and left after a time, it got boring and so samey.

 

The real NooB players who stay the course have one hell of a learning curve ahead of them once they pass that magical 5000 barrier.

 

I can't see the attraction in rerolling an account.  I've spent time, energy and money on my account.  For better or worse it reflects my amazing journey through the fields of Blitz and what a blast it is.  

 

Huzzah!

No it is not bots for 5k battles. Presumably a few tenth.

According to me, the greatest shock when crossing the 5k limit, although they will see it before depending on the number of players connected, will be the toxic chat.

 

I am still playing there to learn tanks like the toaster or heavies with auto-loaders in a relaxed environment, and I enjoy it. Plus, when newby players are doing mistakes they generally agree to do differently if you ask them, like stopping capping to come help. Professionnal noobs (i.e. noobs with a purpose, above 5k) will tell you to f.. off.

It looks like the 5k barrier was changed with 5.4, met a couple sub 1k players yesterday up to tier VI.

Noticed that too but could that be possibly caused by lack of iOS players? I mean smaller player base since iOS release was on hold.

The value of a Ras in low tiers is pointless if they cant maintain the stats later.

100 Ras yet green stats in tierX wont see you at the top of a list for Clan Wars teams etc.

Its like bragging about getting a Mastery the first day a tank is released but a month later you just have sub par stats in it.

 

Like BitCoin the people who get in early can get something out of it.

Once people start jumping on the reroll bandwagon then the free ride will become harder.

 

 

Give only ribbons at tier 1 to 4 if low tier medals are so disgusting. Count WR from tier 5 onward and hide it to second page and put average tier number next to it.

I guess the idea is that by the time they make 5k battles and discover the "real" MM and what a truly competitive bunch we can be it is too late for them they are hooked and will stay long term players. 

 

I think the diividing line is tier V as I have met in battle a few really bad new players. I surmise that they are used to just shooting up bots. So I think that tier V is becoming the default seal clubbers level. KT-220 anybody? Or perhaps a KV-1 if your not a fan of heavies may I suggest the Leopard. For those of a TD inclination there is always the beloved STUG III remember STUG life chose you, you did not chose STUG life. you could make it a bit of a challenge and use the toaster. 

 

As as for people who want to do re-rolls fine I do not mind the only concern is people creating a re-roll account getting very good stats in it then selling the account. Yes WG says that do not allow for this but I have heard of it being done. 

 

If you are a "stat" fanatic then yes I can see this will make your low tier stats seem unremarkable or even sub-par. Personally am not bothered. 

 

The KV-220 is worse than the KV-1.  Yes it has better hull armour, but the turret armour is worse.  Also the KV-1 has far higher DPM, alpha damage and penetration than the KV-220.  And better mobility.

 

Did you realise that the KV-220 has to use APCR prammo to get equal penetration to the KV-1 using standard AP?  That’s bad, especially when low tier.  It’s definitely not a sealclubber’s tank.

Fussing about some numbers more than a certain PC fanboy.

What matters is your brain and your tactical decisions, and how you fight! Not your luck!
