Competing as a Free Player in World of Tanks

Because of my camo netting I wasn’t showing up on their radars. And this is what pissed me off, a Russian KV tank rolled up the hill and behind me, I knew I wasn’t visible to it so I waited until he went past and I cam out and started firing into his rear, every shot deflecting, he turned his turret round to look at me, but then turned it back and went to the crest of the hill and starting shooting at my team mates. I sat there at point blank range and blasted 20 shells into his real armour while he totally ignored me until an enemy SPG took me out in a single hit from the other side of the map. I suppose that’s all you can do until I can afford to be in an imba tank myself or they fix their game. Getting behind an enemy tank, even if yours is comparatively small and fast is no small feat as you are usually spotted a long way off and this game heavily favours being immobile, in cover, camping. At the moment the game doesn’t reward getting behind your opponents that very well, unless it is a tank destroyer, which correctly does have atrocious armour on the rear and it can’t turn to shoot you if you disable its tracks, even a light tank should pose threat to a heavy one if you can score rear hits. I am a history buff myself, but really we are already mixing Soviet, German and US tanks on the same teams so why not break immersion a little more and make the game fun? Kipling just launched a nuclear holocaust at third world countries! The game is catered in a way that forces you to spend money in order to have any fun.

Reply on December 14, Cheats players and constant Hacks plus Fake names are everywhere making your team worthless due to the amount of fake names Cheaters that abound this game. Please tell me how the game is before I play it. Nothing against those Russians, but in this game they have a ridiculously unfair advantage of being able to buy equipments for half the price that Europeans or Americans have to pay. This is probably to push non-Russians into buying more and more using the currency of their country which is more valuable to Tanki than RussianRoubles to catch-up with the Russian majority.

Again, as mentioned by loads of others, nothing against those Russians, but they sure love cheating. The game is full of cheats and the game does nothing about it, apart from the usual BS platitudes and lies from the forum admins.

NoobMeter is a World of Tanks and World of Warplanes game statistics site that calculates efficiency, performance, WN7 ratings and tracks player WoT stats. It has player and clan graphs and comparison.

Figuring out the influential spots, small cubbyholes, firing lanes, etc. World of Tanks is primarily knowing maps very well and which areas are beneficial to you and which areas will result in you being torn to shreds. Abbey Abbey is a smaller map that is decided very quickly which team will have the upper hand. This map has 3 key locations located in the center of the map that are crucial to obtaining map control but at the same time require one another to prevent being flanked.

This is because Airfield is essentially split in two and down the center of the map are defined engagement areas that slow down the pace of the fight in most matches. This can be both good and bad for your team since Airfield usually ends up favoring the team that gets the first good punch in since it can easily snowball due to the small map size. This map has most of the action funneled into 3 specific areas with the deciding factor of the match depending on which team can break through one flank without losing the others.

At the same time it is very important to control the map since El Halluf rewards spotting and playing as a team to keep enemies pinned into their starting areas.

For the Record: On the WG matchmaking patent and “rigged” MM

Matchmaking Matchmaking The composition of tanks in each team is a task of matchmaker. It works in following manner. It takes one tank from the queue and looks at his tier. For example it is IS – russian heavy with tier 7.

Egyrészt megkapják a botokat az ausztrál szerveren játszó játékosok, mert ott nagyon alacsony a játékos létszám, másrészt érkezik egy eléggé jelentős matchmaking átdolgozás is, amitől remélhetőleg élvezhetőbb lesz a játék.

Add to that the proposed new stun mechanic, a maximum number of arties allowed in a game, and WoT might be moving in the direction many players want. Wargaming have finally admitted it – arty doesn’t lead to “dynamic gameplay” – it leads to staying in hard cover at all costs, working out which parts of the maps aren’t accessible to the sky cancer and much rage damage caused to your peripherals when you get hit.

Three is still too many for us, two would be better. Also, we hope the new matchmaker isn’t set so it will always try and fill those three arty slots. There’s also the noob factor – to keep the game alive you need new players, and many of those new players won’t stay long if they are repeatedly crushed into oblivion by the inexplicable Hand of God that arty too often is for the inexperienced.

Wargaming World of Tanks – T92 artillery We’re also going see an an increased rate of fire in 9. So, as it stands, even a direct hit from the dreaded T92 will do “only” around 1, HP of damage. If you’ve ever played the FV , you know how its ability to switch its support is incredible – except now all arties will be able to do that some extent – and from the back of the map.

Or against the bigger guns, a miss with such a massive radius can still kill a tank on low HP. The resuable consumables that we expect to see coming in 9. With all these changes, the effect that Wargaming is hoping for is that they will make arty units much more “part of the team” – a proper support class, as opposed to a random Orbital Punishment System. Yet, good artillery players already know how to maximise the support they give to their team.

Like many other failed game modes, over powered tanks, and worthless maps, Grand Battles will go right down the toilet with the rest of them. Stay tuned at the end for a list of failed game modes If I would have known about this site sooner, you would have seen me on here bitching about Ranked Battles. This means that players will have to spin the RNG to get the battle mode.

Thank god you can turn this game mode off, and I suspect many will. Oh and yes, Grand Battles is for tier 10 only.

World of Tanks controversial patch has dropped on the EU and RU servers. With major changes to artillery, new tier X light tanks and the improved matchmaker – it should be good news.

The player has control over the vehicle’s movement, firing, and can communicate with allied players through typed or voice chat. A simple random match is won either by destroying all vehicles on the opposing team or capturing the opposing team’s base. There are other game modes that change the rules of the battle, but gameplay mechanics remain the same. World of Tanks contains multiple game mechanics such as camouflage, shell ricochets, and module damage. Game modes The players in World of Tanks can choose six primary types of battles: Within random battles, players can also participate in platoons, groups of two to three players who are put into the same team.

There are also missions to be completed in the game modes for varying amounts of rewards. Vehicle types The vehicles are modeled to closely resemble their counterparts in real life, [12] [13] however certain parameters have been simplified or modified to fit game mechanics, and better gameplay. Each nation has at least one line of vehicles starting at tier I to tier X, players progress by playing games in vehicles in that line.

A Closer Look at How World of Tanks Was Intentionally Created To those who haven’t been with the game for too long, this piece is here to enlighten you about how Wargaming operates as a company. Generally when people suggest the game being rigged, or that the matchmaker is out to get them, or anything like that, they quickly get shot down by the giant army of Wargaming fanboys.

This isn’t to say that those claims are true per se, but there’s a significant lack of reason amongst many of the diehard World of Tanks players. There are certain topics that, when brought up on the forums or elsewhere, they bring in all the trolls and the original poster is basically laughed away from the game.

Oct 25,  · Just like in WoT it is extremely rare to get counter-arty fire going and arty in WoT generally just picks a spot and sits there the whole match, This carrier matchmaking issue with Tier 10’s needs to be fixed. Theme. WoWs – White (Default) WoWs – Classic. WoWs – Dark.

While we do know it still has some issues to fix, I would like to address some of the topics related to its implementation in order to explain how some of its elements work. Team Splitting Team splitting begins with a pool of 30 players provided by Matchmaker to form a match. Selection of those initial 30 players includes some filters to allow better balancing, such as pairing platoons with similar tanks.

Disregarding platoons and arty for the moment, team split begins by sorting the pool by Tier, Category, and Skill win rate. Meaning all top tier tanks are at the top of the list, with MBTs at the top of the tier, then sorted within MBT by skill. Teams are then divided up in an “ABBA” fashion, meaning we start at the top of the list and place each player in a team based on the conditions in this order if a previous condition passes, no other condition is evaluated:


It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.

But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in

World of Tanks WoT is a massively multiplayer online game developed by the Belarusian-Cypriot [1] company Wargamingfeaturing midth century ss era combat vehicles. The focus is on player vs. World of Tanks has been ported to multiple gaming consoles.

The matchmaker creates teams based on balance requirements and limitations established in 9. The difference in the number of Platoon players is set to two at the most. The number of SPGs is limited to six at the most per team. To provide each of the 60 players with enough space for maneuvers, we increased map sizes to 1. At this point, the two new maps are merely prototypes of future arenas, designed to evaluate new combat scenarios.

Capture the base the enemy base for Standard mode, or the neutral one for Encounter battles or destroy all enemy vehicles.
