Create an account for each line. That way we can all enjoy the better matchmaking for the first 5000 battles this would increase player experience, fun and general satisfaction. I could be UXB_FrenchTD, UXB_UKmeds, UXB_USheavies, etc.

 

Can anyone see any problems with this?

You could do this now if you wanted to...

Personally. I don’t mind it the way it is and the fun you’re referring to here is easy wins against bots or newbies and noobs, I couldn’t be bothered grinding through the 100ish battles with bots many times...

Plus I think you will struggle with credits and xp in some lines without premium and buying premium for that many accounts is gonna be expensive...

Give it a go though and report back on how you found it...

Yes, it seems like a great use of time and effort, really worth abandoning an account I've invested literally years in, and all because I find playing with the big boys too scary.

Sign me up.

Being average is so much more bearable when you lie to yourself about your ability. Bring on the new players, my ego needs stroked.

Well very interesting what you say, but having experience of one reroll account I don’t think the battles after tier 5 are all bots and noobs. There seems to be a lot of players who can handle themselves pretty well for noobs. Perhaps an indication of just how many have abandoned high game count accounts already.

I did this in order to learn how to using PC controls, an experiment with which I did not persist.   One problem is that you do not accumulate crew skills.   Another is - it’s boring.

Crew skills back to square one for instance. When I separated from the shared account to make my own (this one), the tanks I had grown accustomed to were behaving very differently - not running, not hitting, not bouncing, in a word: not funny.

Un-ability to grind certain crew skills unless you invest gold in them (eg lights benefit from tighter turns but it's a skill you acquire through TDs).

Need to grind twice certain modules which are unlocked on parallel lines eg Waffe gun.

Not finding suitable tanks for a platoon with your mate. Coming to think of it, if I want to platoon with you, do I have to send an invitation to all of your accounts because I don't know which one you're playing this afternoon?

Not having suitable tanks to complete missions.

Need to constantly log out and in again when you fancy a change of pace.

 

In all, it may not be the dumbest idea I've heard regarding WoTB, but it's a strong contender.

Doesn’t work like that anymore. Your teams are dependent on performance. Keep winning despite being bottom tier then bounces kick in.

when I was a free player I thought of having one account per nation as a way of saving on parking places.

i admit the new sub5K rule really entices a player to just do that.

 

but now I’m a grown up. I pay my dues, and I want to become a good player, the best I can be.

for that I need real competition to see my mistakes and learn from good players.

bashing kids to have good stats or easy games isn’t near my top priorities.

also, delogging and reloging and buying multiple premium tanks to grind credits for running upper tiers across multiple accoints...

 

Naaaah.

 My account is comfy. I have sat and farted in it for way too long to go try another one at this point.

I want just that, and replay files.

yeah there is a big rush to reroll right now but for different reason.

 

they play 4500K battles then buy whatever the latest premium commie tank and drive rated only. They insult everyone with their 75% winrate. Well 75 or not they still need to learn that rushing 3 tanks alone doesn’t work when they aren’t totally new players anymore...

 

cheaply inflated winrate remains cheap.

Whatever troll enjoy the rest of your life.

 

For those who suggested the problems with the multi reroll. 

Reporting back. Well you can certainly spot the bots in tiers 1-3 and there appears to be a few in tier 4. The games were pretty boring, but moving in to much more challenging battles. Doing just the one for US TDs and yes credit accumulation is a problem.

Waste of time just for a small boost in winrate.

Need to swap accounts to play different tanks. 

Crew perks all accumulate slower.

Its just the new form of stat padding.

I've got 1 tier 8 prem, 4 tier 7 Prems, 3 tier 6, and a few lower tier prems I can't recall atm on 2 accounts. I spent £2.99 on each gold offer at Xmas... couldn't have got those on my main account for that money.

I have also noticed that I am receiving offers that are very tempting and never receive these types of deals on the main account. Feels rather like a bank in that the best offers go to new customers.

 

As for stat padding lol does anybody care it is the quality of battles that really counts.

What a lie. 

 

Quality of battles increases with player skill. You want battles that are easy, because the players are not very good.

 

Very, very sad. Even worse if you actually believe your own lies.

If your definition of good quality games is shooting fish in a barrel then do what OP suggests but as a dirty stat padding seal clubber I would say these battles are very poor quality, worse than my main account and don’t try and kid yourself they are good quality beacuse you can carry against seals...

That's how and why populism works: some people want to be lied at about their exceptionality and supremacy.

Pathetic you’re just a troll so go and do something else. Read the original post and you will note I asked if people could see any problems with this? So either contribute some constructive observations about this approach or just don’t bother commenting.
