I just drove 5 miles behind a police car which was tailgating somebody on the highway. That somebody was doing 60 in the left lane and was obviously afraid to make any move that might get him pulled over. Well he was a total retard. When this happens you immediately move one lane to the right - if the cop is actually after you he'd move over too and eventually pull you over or leave you (more rarely?), but if he just really wants to move faster he'll speed past and you can proceed driving normally. This retard drove like this for 5 miles basically blocking traffic (if you're doing 60 on the GSP in the left lane you're blocking traffic). Eventually he did move over and the cop sped past. I see lots of retarded driving exhibiting total lack of basic awareness and decision making every day as my commute is 1h roundtrip in fairly heavy highway traffic. I've come to the conclusion that most people are simply not really good at anything. Moreover, the lack of basic critical thinking means you're also incapable of criticizing yourself (which is the only way to get better at something unless somebody else teaches you).


Are you hinting that there are a lot of stupid people around and that is why there are stupid WOT players?

I guess I'm in the mouthbreather camp these days, I have won 1 match this week. Granted I get disgusted and quit after 3 or 4 but it is definitely time to stop playing for a while.

Just hinting? :) :angry:

"Stupid" is a bit of a blanket statement there, many of these people would do OK if they have things shown/explained to them. The problem is lack of critical thinking skills. Or even if they can think critically they can't apply that to themselves. That's my real problem with people.

Anyone could do stupid things. There is the origin of the Holy Hand Grenade of Tanknet*, for instance ;). The bad thing is when one could not stop doing stupid things. Unfortunately, stupid deeds are easy to remember that good deeds. Especially in WoT, with so many players, it's very probable to find someone doing his stupid deed of the day in a game. He could do fine in other games, but one is not going to check the stats and remember a average player.

Yes stupid is too vague. I will agree with critical thinking being nonexistant or not used. Mostly I was poking fun at you. You were quite clear with your post. I was implying you didn't just come out and say what you menat.

I see a lot of the same behavior you posted on during my much shorter commute.

I would say we all do, maybe everyday. But we must learn and try to improve. I wonder sometimes if we (general we) have lost common sense and independant thought.

Just watched a "teammate" deliberately push a stug over a clif. The stug was pushing back but down he went. Now I can not stand that behavior so I put 2 rounds in him and he was gone. He was screaming report report etc. and other witnesses including the stug told him to shut up. Most gratifying kill of the day and I had 2 games with 8 kills today.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the Battle Reports or here, but since the team blew an easy win this is probably more appropriate.

Defeat
Battle: Arctic Region Thursday, January 31, 2013 11:18:27 AM
Vehicle: Type T-34
Experience received: 939
Credits received: 40,468 (compensation for damage caused by allies: 165)
Battle Achievements: Sniper

Yeah, almost 1k xp on a tier 5 in a LOSS.

We were the western team. Eleven of my team go southeast to the enemy base. One guy goes north. Enemy has at least 6-7 north. Guess what? The 2-3 of us who came back to base managed to kill off those 6-7. The 11 of us who went southeast LOST against inferior numbers.

I had 2.1k damage with an 85 dmg gun. You do the math. :glare:

I play KV-1 with 57mm and had a game where I did ~3000 dmg and still team lost...

Here's a thought, when I manage to flank three enemy tanks engaging two friendlies DONT then sit behind a rock and watch all three foes turn towards me and attack and wait until im dead to reengage!!!

Had a rough day with my Marder. A friendly B1 shoots me from behind and tracks me, then he proceeds to run into me from behind...for fun apparently. Idiot.

Next game I am hiding in bush sniping at enemy when a friendly Hetzer rams me (guess he didnt notice the big green diamond!) not seconds later a friendly M2 medium does the same runs into me full tilt, knocking me off target!!! I type WTF all over the place.

Yeah that's one really annoying feature of the new physics. I have just aimed at somebody and am going to perform a really tricky shot and BUMP some moron pushes me off and by the time I have aimed again the target is gone.

Live Oaks. T34. NE team.

I start south (good hull down spots for the T34) and I'm leading the way. My team is taking a LONG time to move down there so I kind of wait up. Then Sixth Sense goes off and arty starts raining in on me. Fuck. I've already broken one of my new rules about being the first seen. I'm also taking bounces on the turret. Given my location this means the other team is in that little underpass near the rail bridge. Fuck. I push ahead to that little dip on our side before that underpass. I creep up to try and get a spot (I have NO idea why I haven't spotted anyone yet) on any of the enemy and they swarm me.

I'm thinking, bummer, I'll take some damage but my team will help me out. Nope. Morons are spread out in a line all the way back to base. Two idiots moved to the edge of that swamp/lake and aren't even looking the in my direction.

I'm overwhelmed. Given the terrain on that part of the map it's real easy to hide yourself in small depressions. The enemy uses this and takes out my moronic teammates one at a time because none of them ever moved up.

Back to those idiots by the lake. One is in a Super Pershing. I figured he was afk but right as I'm about to ask everyone to report him he takes damage and then apparently realizes there's enemies to his left. He charges off sort of towards the enemy with his side showing and dies quickly.

The next moron by the lake was just sitting in the open near that house on the northern side. At this point I'm informing him he needs to take his head out of his ass and join the game. He's engaging enemies at EXTREME range rather than the ones 100-200 meters off to his side. Finally when he loses about 2/3 of his health he turns around. Does he take cover? Nope. Just sits there and trades shots frontally with a Type 59 (he was in a T20).

I inform this moron (Alocin) that that was the worst T20 driving I've ever seen. He didn't like it. Once again we see mouthbreathers defend their shitty play than learn from something. This idiot averages 200 xp/game, has half as many kills as games played, and is sitting at a 47% w/r (how it's that high I have no idea) and thinks he has a clue.

Players like him ruin this game...

Abbey. T-150. Southern team.

I'm in the middle eating up lights and mediums when I see almost the entire enemy team in the west. We have 3 unopposed on the low road rushing to cap.

So... I do the only thing I can. I move to intercept their main force. I run into like 7 of them. Kill 3. Our unopposed guys are capping. Guess what they do? THEY FRICKIN' LEAVE THE CAP. Why?! I have no clue.

Enemy starts capping. Finally after a few of us yell at these morons in chat they move back on and cap. We had the chance for a 'cheap' win and these mouthbreathers blew it.

What's even more sad is a platoon and clan mate of one of 'em came to their defense. Gotta love fake internet bonds being more important than using brain cells.

The mod that ranks players in the end screen by damage is really handy, it's nice to know it wasn't your fault the team lost. Like just now, did the most damage on my team by 600 points or so in my M36 - and it was a T8 game :glare:

I just lost a T7 game in the M4 where I did 1800dmg and morons had no clue to go to stop cap - I was crippled and no use at that point (7hp left - I was really careful not to bump into anybody).

But overall won 3/4 so no big deal.
