WG please dont match me in random battles with players I have blacklisted.

I have blacklisted them for a reason and that reason is that they literally do nothing when playing random battles effectively making that team 1 player less. I blacklisted them because I dont want to play with them neither on my team nor on the enemy team. I dont want to frikkin see them again in game. I dont care if they cant talk to me, because I love crap talking and I am a very salty player.

WG please make note of this, I dont want to play with the frikking potatoes I have blacklisted

You would be sitting the q an awfully long time waiting for a match if everyone was able to blacklist everyone worse than them. 

 

I'll let you in on a little secret. There is a 12/23 chance that they end up on the opposing team. What does this mean?? The better you are, the better your team is as their is only 11 randomly selected players on your team VS 12 on the other team. Over time that means if you are better than the average player your win rate will be higher. If it isn't, then you are already handicapping your team. So focus on the one constant in every battle, yourself. Its the only factor you have direct influence on.

I too wish to only have above average players on my team.  Wargaming please give me that ability after you give it to OP.  I know logically you can't do it for everyone but hopefully since I've asked second I got in ahead of the crowd.

There is nothing I can do when my team decides to die within the first 5 minutes. half my team dead, none of enemy ship died, and all our DDs suicided. so no spotting, eventually they flank and kills us 0-10. great frikkin games that are.

Sometimes, I am on team that ruflstomps the enemy, and sometimes im on the team that gets demolished. neither is fun

So you only want people better than you on your teams. Why? So they can carry you to a win?

Fine, but then don't come raging and screaming here when everyone else kills everything else and leaves you with next to no achievements and a credit loss at high tiers.

I want everyone else on my team to be just good enough to occupy the enemy while I farm damage and kills.  :Smile_hiding::Smile-_tongue:

It seems you have a hard time understanding who I blacklist. It is the worst player who literally contributes nothing to the battle. these potatoes dont even deserve the ship they play and probably failed their way up there. I didnt say I blacklisted every single player beneath me in XP earned.

make sure you comprehend the post before replying

also I dont play for achievements. if I get them then good, but I play for the win

You left out the part, he would be considered a potato and blacklisted. :Smile-_tongue:

OP... WG isn't going to bend MM around your personal tastes on who you want to be teamed up with. If they did that, you'd see everyone blacklisting every 45%er and those people would never get in a battle. Learn to play well with others, regardless of their skill.

^^ Oh we understand. What he was pointing out was the math. After a while your queue time will be much higher then say others who dont blacklist and just let it go. Next thing you know, here is a dozen forum threads of why queue times are to high.

Well, under his policy those better players would then blacklist him. So, eventually he won't be able to play a game since everyone was blacklisted by him or they blacklisted him.

His stats are actually better than mine, so I can't have a go at him for that, but there's an underlying feeling of elitism in what he says which doesn't do him any favours.

A healthy diet consists of modest portions from all the major food groups … 

Including fruits and vegetables, lean meats, wholegrain items and limited amounts of sugary and high-fat foods 

Eat your vegetables or you get NO DESSERT!

blacklisting is for messages has nothing to do with them not being on your team.  i found out hard way, blacklisted a bunch of people and they kept being on my team then someone told me its only they can't message you.
