First Asshole of the Month nominee for October 2023: __Ratchet2__

This guy uses anonymizer to hide his real in-game name. It’s probably so he can hide his less-than-stellar stats from XVM users.

__Ratchet2__ is one of those guys who gets his childish feelings hurt when the team doesn’t play how he thinks they should.

This poor chap decided to commit suicide immediately at the start of the round and exclaimed: “I don’t waste time on lemming teams”

He remained in chat throughout the battle, hoping and praying that we would lose, and yet, we pulled off a victory despite his belief that we were playing poorly.

The guy has 112,699 battles, which is pretty impressive (first battle August 4, 2011). However, in all that time, he hasn’t managed to crack a 50% winrate. I hate to stats shame but it’s obvious this guy cares very little for winning...

Ace Tanker: American Tier 9 TD – T30

Karelia standard battle with tier 9/tier 10. Only got an Ace because my 50% of my team camped spawn behind me, including a 35% player in a Mauschen. Guy sat in the same spot he spawned until nearly the very end. His reasoning is: I’m a very slow heavy.

I managed to get 4,391 spotting/assist damage along with 3,997 damage on my own, which isn’t great but not too shabby.

Ace Tanker: K-91-PT

Cliff – Standard battle – tier 8/9 battle 10/6/23

So much fun! North spawn, I told the west route and camped at D1 and SO many of their tanks came that way… they just kept pushing, and I kept firing. Had a friendly Ferdi beside me (he shot me in the ass twice).

Ace Tanker: T-44-100

10/5/23 – Standard Battle on Erlenberg with tier 8 and tier 9.

Don’t have a story to write about this, I was as surprised as anyone to pick up an ace.

Asshole of the month #4: Rockstar8

E100 joins a battle and doesn’t move. Feeds the enemy his HP. He was the only player on the team to do literally nothing: No shots fired. No spotting damage. He only moved at the very last minute; I assumed he was driving into enemy fire.

This perennial loser has earned a 38% win rate in the E100 but 44% overall.

Asshole of the Month #3: The_NOODLER

Imagine… being a toxic, racist troll and exposing this to thousands of people online every day.

Meet: The_NOODLER on the NA Server.

He seems to be a VERY prolific player. Now, math is not one of my strengths but it looks like 216 rounds of tanks in 24 hours. That seems excessive.

Here is an excerpt from my recent run-in with The_Noodler.


(ME) can you just play tanks and not be a troll?

The_Noodler (MT-25): i do not troll

The_Noodler (MT-25): nigga

The_Noodler (MT-25): fuck u pedos lmao

The_Noodler (MT-25): we need to nuke Canada

The_Noodler (MT-25): I ain’t surprised, u blahks (sic) worship the pedo r kelly

The_Noodler (MT-25): look! KV is TROLL...

Asshole of the month: Sep 2023 – 2nd nomination goes to pastmadmonkey

Another troll player intentionally throwing matches.

This asshole announces at battles start: limit prem (gold) ammo (capacity) and ban gold spammers OR I camp/drown all battles.

And based on his recent stats: he’s serious.

37% recent winrate.

He camped the entire battle on Sand River only to become the last survivor on the team and he refused to hunt/kill the last enemy tank alive.

Just tooled around on the map running the clock down. A complete asshole and epic troll.

Asshole of the month: Sept 2023 – goldman69

My new favorite North American World of Tanks player is goldman69.

I’ve run into this asshole twice in the last few days. Both times, in pre-battle chat, he exclaims (in all caps) that he’s running full HE in his Scharzpanzer 58.

And, in both battles, he seems to be firing ineffectively at large targets. Shooting 6 times. Hitting 3, and accomplishing 60 damage.

His win rate isn’t spectacular. It shows 38% win rate on WOTLABS with a WN8 of 34.

He appears to have played over 62k battles of WoT, 55 in the last 24 hours.

He plays 2 tanks: Schwarzpz. 58 and Skota T 40… but almost exclusively the German tank.

This person intentionally tries to lose every battle he can and appears to have been doing this for years.

Today’s battle...

Fun Ace and Radley-Walters’s in American tier 7 reward TD

Paris – Standard battle, top tier. Feels like cheat mode in the T28 HTC.

This was a fun round for me. I just pressed W and kept firing until all the tanks were dead!

This TD is a tough one. I took 8 hits but only one penetration.

Meanwhile, I racked up 3,420 damage with 8 Kills total from 13 penetrating shots.
