DaDerpinator, are you saying that the nubs are moving to the higher tiers to get away from the seal clubbers?

 

This is not unlike the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti.

Try playing with pc. The lower tiers are filled with seal clubbers and Noobs. The higher tiers are filled with Noobs and op Russian premiums and you get -2mm most of the times.

This is the shortest and most appropriate answer.

Well yes, that could be. But mainly the nubs are in the higher tiers because WG has made it possible for them to be there! by fast tracking progress thru the tiers and the constant selling of high tier tanks. And I think some/many high tier players have resorted to seal clubbing due to frustration in playing the higher tiers because of nubs and poor (or no) teamwork. It seems to me the gameplay in the lower tiers is higher than it used to be due to seal clubbing.

Guess what - half the players are  48-49%  winrate or less . This is neccessary for the other half to be more than that percentage winrate .Who are you expecting to meet in battle? If you put all 60-70 winrate players in a seperate grouping then they would mostly start to average out at 48-49 % winrate . If you think the Unicums stats are based on anything other than beating mainly noobs (with extras) then you are mistaken. The unicum players should be saying thank you to the noobs for their hit points instead of blaming them for losses.

one of those players is me :)

 

i spend half my games in tiers 3-4 in last two months and its fun ( win/lose doesn't matter )

with all those grind modes and certificates tiers 6+ are pure garbage 

most of the days i find better teamwork at tier 3 than tier 10

at least in low tiers you meet either seal clubber veterans or new players who actually want to spend time learning the game

also its very rare to see toxic players :)

 

for high tiers try playing in morning or lunch (which is hard because school/work ) after 17:00 its nightmare

Though to be fair, how can you seal club unless player quality is lower at the lower tiers. The reason high tiers are more difficult is because the player base are better, even if tiers VIII+ are no longer as exclusive as before.

Nice point.

I'd say that low tiers are full of newbs and some seal clubbers, mid tiers are less news and more sealclubbers and higher tiers are a bit of newbs and mostly good or average players who are mad to look bad by other good players.

Derpy Da Derpmeister, agreed. Imo lower tiers are more fun. I don’t play tiers 9 or 10.

Higher tiers are actually @##@$$.

Lower tiers are comparatively better. But not always!

Today I got a pop up offer for 50 x5 certs for 10.99. These types of offers allow noob players top shoot to the higher tiers in no time. 

 

Things like this, and the purchase of premium tanks, are why the higher tiers are stuffed with noobie players.

There are varying offers, and i think they are tied into your battlecount. A sub-1k reroll got the offer of 10 x5 certs for 1.09

Looks like the 50 x5 offer is not that great.

I wasn't making a point about value. My point was that someone that's newish to the game could get these and fly up the tiers easily.

Pz B2 seal clubber right here. Sorry kids; but WG ruined tier 9/10 with the missile tanks and tier 8 with the P2W tanks; tier 7 with the Smasher and Lycan. So its only lower tiers for me now.

I disagree. In a higher tiers; the first team that loses one or two tanks will lose the game. Only a platoon of super unicums can turn around a losing situation like that. In lower tiers if you have a decent team of 48% players that work together you can still turn it around because you have less hitpoints to go through.
