I like to provoke bit... and just because I sense some weird , almost hostile frustration towards half of the playerbase from a lot of people here on this forum. I kinda wanted to know if you think the game would be better without all us potatoes in it.

 

So vote yes if you think WG should remove all sub 50% wr players.

 

And no.... I do not do this as a mean to justify my wr. I care abort my wr, but I'm just not better than this. Maybe lots of the low wr ppl only have a few hours a week to play

My friend and Clan Member is a Tetraplegic he has a WR less than 50%, for obvious reasons, but loves the game so the justification for banning sub 50% WR players from Randoms isn't there.

If you do that, after some time you would be back to the same proportion of over and under average players, so you split again and keep 1/4 of the playerbase ? Then after some time, you know... is that a new kind of battle royale ?

Nope, but I would not mind if they banned you.

The problem there is 

 

A) you would have a very small playerbase straight off, most of whom are probably the whales that keep the lights turned on, who will likely stop playing with massive drop in income for WG.

B) remaining peoples WR will average out and some of those will start to drop below 50%, so do they now drop out.

C) repeat B.

I am not, but I might or might not be satirising a former British Secretary of State for Education, one Mr M. Gove.

How about we ban them from ranked? :cap_yes:

How does WG get the coin from all of the Prem Ship sales if the Sub 50%-ers are blocked...

We need to ban people with a WR above 50% and then everyone left will win more in random games.

Banning people from gamemodes is ridiculous.


It would however be nice if the really really terrible players (you know, 10k games, 39% wr...) get a message in port every now and then informing them of the existence of co-op and that that might perhaps be a more suitable environment for them.

Maybe there should be a written exam, and then a test game where your performance is judged by a panel of amazing players before you're allowed to play.

 

That would be so lovely.

Perfect situation from WG perspective - just reroll and buy T9 or whatever tier you want. New account made to inflate "game is growing" spreadshiet and extra monies on the account :cap_look:

It is a misconception. Most people in the forum actually have no issues with potatoes. The issue only arises when a potato comes to the forum to claim some nonsensical stuff, like how a yamato cannot push because it has weak amour. In actuality, if a potato needs help or has questions and phrase it in a proper way, the forumites are more than willing to help them, be it advice, replay review or i think even playing with them in game. So yeah :fish_viking:

Nah only ban those with sub 50% wr in ranked from ranked

 

Nope... this is about keeping them potatoes out of random battles, so they have to get offered a refuge to gather where they don't really annoy a large part of the playing community.. ranked is THE place for that.

 


 

I'd rather to see that limitation on sub-par players set even broader: keep all players with a <90% CoOp winrate out of CoOp battles. Can't have these people risk their health by having to do something as difficult as playing a computer game and breathing at the same time...

No but there should be a special place for all the narcissistic "elite" players to go stroke their epeens.

I'm >50% but it causes me a lot of stress knowing what's at stake when I play, I'd rather there was no WR so I could enjoy the game and not feel bad then my team crumbles, lowering my WR.    OR the enemy team has an ace DIV way above my skill range.

New players in newly purchased ships should not be able to enter randoms immediately.

May not be too aware of it but the player is ruining the game for the rest of his team. Especially if they are in a CV. I have had terrible experiences for the last couple of weeks about either afk or clueless CV players.

But hey.. we all know WG don't care. They had been selling t10 ships for quite a while now and they wont prevent new spenders jumping into randoms.
