Getting a bit tired

Because you were slated to die, in order to feed the machine.

It is only BS if it doesnt happen both ways...

 

I honestly have to admit i am now understanding a bit better why game seemed so lopsided against me...i was exposing too much and so on...

 

That said...sometimes i do the right thing, get the first shot on a good place...and STILL FAIL TO KILL AND THEN DIE to return fire.

HOWEVER...and this is a big however...i see the reverse sometimes...i make a mistake, my tank shrugs a shot and a get a good return shot...

I do feel i have more bad luck than good luck...but for now i am still accepting it is my mistakes and the human perception that is more sensitive to bad than good results...

I've been on both ends of this. My point is it does happen both ways and it shouldn't.

1. How is it possible that the enemy can be hidden behind a rock when I can't "see" him, but he can see me, and hit me low? Happen several times.

 

2. Often end up in a game with higher ranking tanks, why?

 

3. I can't damage a higher ranking tank hitting them direct in the front, but a lower ranking tank can knock me out with one shot, what the h**l is wrong with this game?

 

Really had hoped it had improved the 1 - 2 years I've been way from it. Sadly it has not.

Spotting in AB is horrible. You can't even tell if you've been spotted it's that bad. 

 

 

 

AB doesn't even have a "six sense" feature which means the spotting system is in a way worse then that other tank game.

In Italy, I caught this on killcam once... the rock ledge over the north end of B point, apparently if you stick your muzzle in it you can shoot right through as if it wasn't there.

If a vehicle is short enough to not extend beyond the top edge of the rock, then that vehicle can get a sense of where you are by tag, and kill you without ever being exposed.

I used to get 2-3 kills per match in tier one arcade tanks. Now im lucky if i get a couple hits before losing all 3 tanks and sent packing.  Arcade tanks is so broken.

^ since it looks like you are new, you were probably facing bots at first and are now out of the beginner zone.  Try taking a slower approach to the maps.  Think about where you are going and what angles you have to be worried about.  Also learn where to shoot a tank.  Many have tanks that have very bad weak spots even tier 1 tanks can pen them.  As far as spotting goes, treat ab more like rb and you will do better.  Ab spotting is not what it used to be, where every tank within so many meters was basically visible on the mini map or in your hud.  Now if you do not have line of sight, you almost never have a marker.  Sometimes, not even when you have line of sight do you get a marker.

This game is so full of hackers and credit card commandos that theres nothing that you can do.   Spend more and be happy.

 

Cheaters are really rare from my experience. Barely ever suspected anyone of cheating.. (air A/R)

Seems they are good at kicking them out rather quick too.

Where do you play?

It's not. But since even I get called a cheater regularly for only killing the same player twice in a row or scoring 7+ kills in a match, I understand where this idea comes from.

 

What I do not understand, however, is how people are completely incapable of imagening that there might be someone out there who is simply better than them. There are potentially players with faster reflexes, a higher IQ, better knowledge of game mechanics and weak spots and better hardware / internet connection around every corner. It's something you have to deal with in a competitive game. You can only overcome that by improving things on your end. Letting your ego tell you that other players must be cheaters if they outperform you by a too large margin, is a very temporary solution to your problem ...if it can be called a solution at all. The same goes for rage-posting on forums. You should ask your self if you even enjoy this game.

I don't, anymore. I'm playing out my premium time and then dumping it like yesterday's leftovers.

 

All Gaijin had to do was take care of the basics, and since I made that observation in this thread the first time, they not only failed to do that, they wiped out all the carefully crafted ballistics information they'd gleaned from us 'unpaid workers' over years of bug reports, and replaced it with that god-forsaken, broken ballistics calculator. They can't make spotting work properly. They keep degrading capabilities that I had found useful or fun. "Weird Things" continue to occur... and I'm done with all of it.

No, but Minecraft is at least documented and has basic mechanics that work properly.

I'm still convinced War Thunder's lack of documentation is due to the dev's desire to do whatever whenever, and simply call it functional when confronted.

Very offtopic question...but you keep repeating this on several topics and i got curious...

 

If you are dumping WT...why running Premium to the end? And since i am asking...why still in forums?

 

(I left a few games already...i go to forums sometimes to see if something changed...but not everyday)

And....

Edit: Seriously, that's your response, you're actually comparing the two...obviously you didn't get the joke

Because 1) I actually paid real money for that, and 2) salt flushing to bring down my blood pressure. Don't worry about #2, self resolving soon enough.
